Do you ever feel as if you’re making you’re intuition up?
If you do you’re not alone. This is a very common feeling.
When I work with students one of the first things they say as they begin to get images, symbols and words/phrases is, “I feel like I’m making this up!” And actually this is a good thing, but it’s also a double-edged sword.
When you feel as if you’re making it up this shows that the information that is coming to you is not coming from your own memory or preset beliefs. When the images, symbols and words/phrases that pop into your mind are surprising you are getting information that was not previously known to you, and that’s why you feel as if you’re making it up.
The information in whatever form it comes, whether it is seen visually in the mind’s eye or heard audibly within the mind is not something you were previously thinking about, so it just drops into your awareness very suddenly. This is why I’ve always referred to this type of information as a “download” as it comes from outside of you. To feel as if you’re making it up is a good sign of your progress in developing your intuition.
There is a downside to getting the feeling that you’re making it up, and it’s this; many times when you feel as if you’re making up the images, symbols and words/phrases you get you’ll sensor yourself. This means you’ll hold back and not share this information as you believe “you made it up” and therefor it’s incorrect. But 99.9 percent of the time you’ll learn later that it was actually correct. It’s a painful lesson in learning to trust what you get intuitively especially when it’s surprising, but this is how you learn.
It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been working to develop your intuition and psychic abilities either. I still have moments when I feel as if I’m making it up and I don’t trust the information. I’ll give you an example. In a recent mediumship reading I heard a name that I was reluctant to share because my rational mind kicked in. Now, I had not been thinking of this name and it WAS a surprise, however I immediately assumed this was too stereotypical of a name for the nationality of the person I was reading and didn’t say it. (For example hearing the name Nick if I was reading for a person of Greek heritage and assuming it couldn’t be right because it’s so common). I didn’t share the name and of course, it turned out to be the correct name. This is how the rational mind trips you up.
So how do you overcome the feeling of making up your intuition? Here are three important tips:
- Practice! Do not ever stop practicing. Join an Intuition Development Group. Developing your intuition and psychic abilities is a life-long journey that takes time, practice and perseverance. There is no such thing as instant mastery.
- Meditate every day. I can’t stress this enough. There is no better way to learn how to differentiate between the information you get from your rational mind and that of your intuition and psychic abilities than by going within. This will sharpen your intuition – absolutely.
- Let go of your fear of being wrong. This is the most difficult thing to learn to do. If the information that comes to you “surprises” you – trust it and share it. Try to adopt an attitude of play when you’re getting the information. NO ONE is right all the time – no matter what you see on TV shows about psychics. They edit out all the mistakes. Never forget that. So stop being so hard on yourself and enjoy the process!

Why is love all there is? Have you ever thought about this?
In January of 1998 I had a profound spiritually transformative experience. In the middle of the night I was awakened by an aunt who had made her transition three weeks earlier. She came to tell me to, “love more.” And, during her visit I was enveloped in the most indescribable love I have ever felt. It was far beyond human love. The only word that might possibly describe it is celestial. I was so high from this love I don’t think my feet touched the ground for a week. Years later, from my research I learned that it can take up 20 years to process and integrate a spiritually transformative experience, and here it was happening to me right on cue.
In 2018, I began to focus on this topic of “love being all there is” when it occurred to me that the depression I had been experiencing wasn’t so much a depression, as it was homesickness. I longed to feel that amazing “celestial” love again. Where had it gone? Why couldn’t I feel it again?
One morning I was meditating when I had a flash of insight about this phrase. It came to me that “love is all there is” because at our core we are drops of eternal divine intelligence, or God having a human experience through each of us. This loving intelligence animates life and is the eternal force that leaves when the body expires. It loves us as self, as we are all one and the same in essence. And, it is ALL there is because without it there could be no-thing.
As part of our human experience we forget who we really are. The emotional problems of life in a physical body blot out the awareness of this love. But, when we make our transition out of the physical world we are freed from this build-up of emotions and we experience the truth again, and that amazing love again. This is why many spiritually transformative experiences have an element of unity consciousness or divine love to them. In that blissful moment we are freed from the layer of “forgetfulness” to experience that love really is all there is.
We can manage the “emotional build-up” and strengthen our connection to divine love every day if we practice meditation. Having a daily practice of meditation allows us to get quiet and see where the “build-up” is, so we know what part of our lives need attention. We may never have the blow-out high of a spiritually transformative experience, but at least we know the truth that we are all headed home, and when we get there we will bask in the full force of that amazing love that cannot be described.

Have you been wishing that your deceased loved one would send you a message through a dream?
One of the most common ways that afterdeath communication takes place is through dreams.
It’s not unusual to have what is known as a “visitation dream” in the first few years after a loved one has crossed over. A “visitation dream” is characterized by how real the experience feels and how it stands out in your memory even years later. The love you feel during a visitation dream is palpable and the message touches your heart. Visitation dreams happen spontaneously. They are definitely a wonderful surprise gift from heaven!
But what happens when you’re loved one has been gone for a long time and you still wish to have contact with them? Is it possible?
The answer is yes.
If you wish to communicate there are a few simple steps you can take to send up flare that will get their attention.
I did this recently with my father. Since his passing I’ve been taking care of my mother who is turning 90 in 6 months. She is not an easy person to deal with and often more critical than appreciative of my efforts. Getting older is not easy as I’m learning first-hand through the experience of being her caretaker. I’m not blaming my mother for being difficult to please just stating a fact. I wondered if my father knew that I was doing my best with my mother?
It took nearly two months, but I did get a message from him in a recent dream. This dream was not a “visitation” but an answer to my request to hear from him on this subject..
Let me share the dream with you then I’ll give you the steps to follow to communicate with your deceased loved one.
Dream: I was walking on the side walk past the backyard of the house I grew up in at around 7 am. It was early on a Saturday morning and the street was quiet and no one was outside. I had just reached the hedge-lined pathway that would take me from the the sidewalk to the back patio when the back door opened and out came my father. He was carrying a brown cushion pet bed. He walked across the patio to the pathway and bent down and placed the pet bed on the path between the hedges. If I wasn’t standing at the edge of the path there would have been no way I would have seen that pet bed on the ground as it was completely hidden between the hedges.
As he stood he looked up and our eyes met. The edges of his mouth curled up in a slight impish grin.
I immediately knew that he was embarrassed to have been caught doing this kind act for stray animals. My father was a kind man and always eager to help people and animals. He never advertised his deeds – he just did them.
I believe he was telling me that while he is aware that I’m doing my best that I should not expect any recognition from my mother or anyone else. I should quietly continue to do what I’ve been doing just for the sake of knowing it’s the right thing to do like he would have done.
So I did get answer from my father after all.
Would you like to get an answer about something in your life from a deceased love one?
Try following these three simple steps:
- Be clear on what you want to know. Don’t send out a jumble of questions or requests. Narrow it down and focus on that one thing you want answered.
- Create the intention that you wish to hear from them in a dream. Every night when you go to bed be sure you have a pad and a pen on your bedside table. Say out loud, “I want to have dream communication with XX where they answer this (insert your question).”
- Talk to them frequently during the day – out loud. I find the best time to do this is when I’m in the car alone. I tell them to take a ride with me and imagine they are sitting in the passenger seat. Then I explain that I want to hear from them and I would like it if they replied to my question in a dream I intend to have that evening.
NOTE: It may take a couple of days or even weeks to have and recall your dream. It’s very important not to give up. It’s also important to keep your wits about you each and every day after you make your request to communicate with your loved one. They may try to get your attention in other ways to share the answer with you using signs and symbols during the day.
That’s it! Set the intention. Communicate this intention clearly to your loved one during the day. Go to sleep.

Today I’m opening the Powered by Intuition Mailbag and answering a question from a subscriber whose “Intuition has disappeared.”
“I’ve had ‘The Family Gift’ since my parents first recognized I knew things that I shouldn’t be able to know when I was around 3 years old. However, almost a year ago, on December 9th, I lost my father to Cancer and he was also coerced by my stepmom to write me out of his will, which devastated and hurt me deeply! I COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN!
Now I rarely feel, hear or see my invisible friends at all! How Can I overcome this obstacle, if it’s possible to do so. I have forgiven my Dad but the hurt won’t go away and I feel it is blocking me tremendously!
Any advice would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!”
MB, Alabama, USA
I’m sorry to learn of your father’s passing and that you were cut out of your father’s will. I can understand how hurt you must have been. I’m glad you’ve forgiven your father though. This is a great question.
When we feel hurt, as you indicated in your email we can absolutely block our intuition. The pain caused by what we interpret to be a rejection is deeply wounding and traumatizing.
Inside we may be thinking things such as, “I’m not worthy.” Or, “I could have not done this, or I should have done this instead” and we feel responsible for our loved one turning against us. Guilt is a huge block to Intuition. It’s a heavy burden and block that can and will affect many areas of our life. It can even affect our health and suppress the immune system if we believe that we deserve to be punished.
Regardless of whatever our role may have been (or not been) going over the “what if” scenario again and again will keep the pain in the present moment and keep us stuck in a vicious cycle of beating ourselves up for something that we now cannot change. Forgiving your father, your stepmom and yourself are the vital first steps to take. Of course, I understand that this is easier said than done. Daily meditation and reflection on loving them and yourself and stating that you are open to forgive will help pave the way for the pain to recede so you’re no longer a prisoner of the past and these painful emotions.
If you do feel in any way responsible for the outcome you might choose to “punish” yourself by suppressing what you call the “family gift.” If you feel that you deserve to be cast out from the family you might also feel on a subconscious level that you don’t deserve to have the family gift. It may also be a temporary symptom caused by the pain and grief you’re processing from the loss of your father in addition to the feelings of being rejected by being cut from his will.
Emotions are energy and deep pain and grief are very powerful ones. If you have read Dr. Hawkin’s book, Power vs. Force,
you will be aware that every emotion corresponds to a frequency. The “higher” the frequency the more light and positive life force is contained within the emotion. This is why we are always trying to “raise our vibration.”
The emotions that are denser are heavier ones such as grief and what we might call “negative” emotions.
Heavy/dense emotions do not contain as much “light.”
All living creatures emit light or biophotons that can be seen under laboratory conditions. This light emission decreases when the organism is unhealthy and obviously stops when the organism dies. So when we are processing dense emotions our bodies are not in top form. Rather than traveling the bodies’ energy system and recirculating after being processed these dense emotions can get trapped. This sluggishness in the free flow of our life energy, creates what we refer to as “blocks.”
4 Steps to Raise Your Vibration and Clear Your Intuition Blocks:
1. Set aside 20 minutes a day to practice peace, love and gratitude.
Feel grateful for what you do have and review all that you do have instead of what you missed out on by being excluded from your father’s will. Feel love for your father and if at first it’s hard to feel love toward your stepmom, feel gratitude toward her for being there to take care of your father during his bout with cancer.
2. See yourself immersed in a still pond of peace.
Focus on feeling as if this watery peace is being absorbed through your skin into every cell of your body. Feel this peace traveling through every vein in your body. See it bathing every organ. Start from the bones in your feet and see it washing and soothing everything it touches all the way up to the top of your head.
3. Send out love and gratitude.
Feel the cleansing peace being released back into the world through your every breath as self-love and gratitude. See a golden bubble of pure light surrounding you, your father and stepmom. Feel how much love you have for yourself, your Dad and stepmom. Feel the gratitude at being alive and at having an opportunity to take what you’ve learned in life and try again each new day.
4. Forgive and let go.
Years ago I practiced with a group of Sahaja yogis
and the leader of this group had a mantra that I still use to this day, “I forgive. I forgive everyone including myself.” Keep repeating that. Use it throughout the day when you feel a sense of injustice or anger toward your Dad or stepmom.
Eventually your intuition will return. It might be that at this time it’s more important to work on yourself right now rather than your intuition. These blocks may have “ballooned” now so that you have no choice but to deal with them and clear them, and most likely they were holding you back throughout your life in ways you hadn’t realized. In fact, this is probably a good thing. Clear your emotional blocks now so that you can be a fully charged clear channel for the next great chapter of your life!

The moment of inspiration is THE most powerful moment to manifesting your dreams and desires.
It is the moment in time that the door of opportunity is opened widest. That’s why you must take advantage of this momentum and take action at the moment of inspiration.This is one of the ways your Intuition speaks to you – through intuitive inspiration. When it pulls you toward an opportunity there’s a reason. You can only be pulled toward something that you resonate to vibrationally because it is a matching vibration. Like always attracts like.
Those moments contain the power to propel you further toward accomplishing your goals and achieving what you desire than at any other time. You might think of them as you’re own private “splitting the atom” moments. The power released by splitting the atom is incalculable but it’s not worth a thing if you don’t harness it and let it slip through your fingers.
When you hesitate and wait….the power escapes and is lost to you forever. You forfeit this amazing opportunity and the door slams shut – fast. To manifest what you want you must allow the inspiration of what you envision creating to move you into taking ACTION. The magic to manifesting is in the moment of inspiration, so use it!
If you stop to think about all of the obstacles – you’ve already lost that momentum. Putting your attention on what you perceive to be the challenges – means that you will surely attract more challenges. It cannot be any other way. What we focus on expands. This is a basic law of the Universe. It is also why beginners often achieve what more experienced people do not. Beginners are not aware of all the pitfalls they might encounter so they jump into an opportunity with both feet and Voila! they accomplish something astounding that we attribute to “beginners luck.” But it’s not luck…it’s freedom from the grips of fear that keeps experienced people stuck.
The moment you’re inspired by an idea is the moment of its greatest power. If you don’t take action your Ego will. The longer you linger in indecisiveness and hesitate the more your ego will undermine your enthusiasm by whispering things like, “You don’t really want to to that?” and “It will never work anyway so why bother,” or “It’s not that important to you anyway.” And then you’ve talked yourself out of an opportunity to break out of your comfort zone and attract what you desire to you. This will stop you in your tracks and keep you stuck in procrastination where you are assured that NOTHING will change for the better in your life.
To walk headlong into opportunities the Universe thrusts in your path you must have a “Can do” attitude and be resourceful rather than zeroing in on all the reasons why you can’t do something. When you give into what you ‘perceive’ to be the obstacles you’re giving away your power as a creator to rise above the perceived conditions. Conditions are only conditions if you uphold them with your beliefs. If you believe you can’t do something because say, you think you can’t afford it. Guess what! You just slammed the door on an opportunity and made those conditions your reality. And the only way to change that is to change how you react.
Overcome negative reactions. Instead of allowing the door of opportunity to slam shut by immediately going into negative thinking, change how you think by asking yourself any of these SIMPLE questions: How CAN I do this? How CAN I make this happen? How CAN I afford this?
The minute you pose a question like any of those to your subconscious it will go to work digging through every file in your memory to answer the question. It will start bringing up SOLUTIONS into your conscious awareness. This is how you become resourceful and accomplish what others call miracles. They are stuck in a fear based mindset thinking things such as, “I can’t do it, It won’t work for me” and “I can’t afford it” while you’re out there doing amazing things that others marvel at! .
Successful people allow inspiration to lead them and take advantage of opportunities by being resourceful and finding ways to say YES to opportunities – when other people say they can’t afford it, or do it for any number of reasons. And that’s what opened unexpected doors to their greatest success. Achieving success is harnessing the moment of inspiration and doing IT when other people cower in fear and say there’s no way.
What are you saying No to? What will it take to be open to your inspiration and allow it to lead the way?
