“The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, and the solution comes to you and you don’t know how or why.” –Albert Einstein
Surprise – there is!
1. The best time to access your intuition
The best time to get intuitive guidance is when you’re relaxed and calm. If you have problem that you’d like an answer to the best thing to do is to sit in meditation or do something that relaxes you, such as gardening or walking. When your mind is calm you have more opportunity to hear your inner voice.
When you’re worried and can’t stop thinking about the problem your intuition will have a hard time getting through all the chatter.
Here’s a story about this:
I faced a big dilemma when I was writing, “The Intuition Principle.” I needed to decide whether I would self publish my book or try the traditional publishing route. I kept going round and round on what to do.
I was feeling really stressed by all that was going on in my life at this time too. I was working full time, juggling a lot of family responsibilities, keeping up with writing for Powered by Intuition and corresponding with agents while writing the book. I thought I would crack!
I made lists of the pros and cons of each way to go but, I was still torn. I was afraid if I self-published it would hurt my chances of getting a publisher later on so, I kept pushing myself to find an agent.
I kept asking my intuition, “Please show me which is the right way to go; self-publishing or traditional publishing?”
But, the answer never came. After nearly two months of this quandary, I stopped asking what to do and just focused on finishing the book. I literally gave up in exasperation. I decided to just write the “damn thing” and figure out what to do later.
And, then the answer came!
The answer came to me while I was in the shower – of all places. Showering is a calming experience for most people. There’s nothing like steaming hot water to relax you.
The problem was I had gotten so obsessed with finding an answer that I had blocked my intuition from coming through.
I wasn’t able to remain calm during meditation. I was worried about what to do. I hadn’t “let go” of the problem. And, even when I thought I had reached that “calm place” my mind always drifted back to “getting the answer” to this problem.
After I’d worked myself up into a lather and let go out of frustration the answer came to me. I decided to stop worrying and self-publish. I’d look for an agent/publisher with my next book and if I got one – fine – if I didn’t fine; I would self-publish that one too.
Right Time Action Step:
The best time to get intuitive guidance is when you’re calm and have let go of the problem. You need to be detached and free of fear and worry about the outcome. Asking over and over while you’re stressed is not going to bring you any answers.
Tell yourself that you want intuitive guidance about “XX” problem while in meditation. Picture yourself getting it and being elated by having solved this problem. Feel the joy of overcoming this obstacle. Then let go and get on with your day.
Your answer may come during meditation that day or the next. It may come when you are relaxed and doing something completely different, like it for me when I got my answer in the shower.
If any doubts or fears surface during the day close your eyes and replay the scene of getting the answer and feeling overjoyed. (You don’t have to know “the answer” to see this scene and feel overjoyed).
Affirmation for letting go
A great affirmation to use when you’re stressing over a problem is: “I now let go and let God.”
When you say this to yourself you’re letting go of the problem and the worry about the outcome. This doesn’t mean that you’re giving up. It means you take action and do whatever you can to solve the problem but, you don’t allow it to hijack your life with worry.
2. The right time to access your intuition is when environmental conditions are right
Conditions are right when the weather on Earth and in space is calm.
Scientific studies show that “spontaneous telepathic impressions were more frequent on days of quiet geomagnetic activity. There are suggestions that psi ability is related to changes in magnetic field strength (e.g.Persinger, 1989).”
What is geomagnetic energy?
Geomagnetic energy is produced by the Sun and principally elevated during solar storms, flares and sun spot activity. This radiated energy enters the Earth’s atmosphere and literally “knocks heads” with the planet’s magnetic field. It can disrupt communications and electric grids.
How to get the “space weather report”
If there is a problem you’d like intuitive guidance on pick a day when the space weather report is showing low levels of EMF activity.
You can find out what the anticipated “space weather” will be by going to the NOAA/Space Weather Prediction Center – here. The NOAA gives a three day forecast.
3. Avoid electrical storms too
Thunder and lightening storms on Earth can increase paranormal activity such as poltergeist activity and interactions with spirits, as negatively charged ions are released into the environment.
If you are trying to reach the other side an electrical storm will enhance your chances but, it may suppress your intuition. Wait until after the electrical storm has passed to work with your intuition.
Maybe this is why so many ghost stories begin with…..it was a dark and stormy night?
Have you noticed any correlation with the weather when trying to tune into your inner voice?
