When Intuition Disappears – Answering Readers’ Questions

When Intuition Disappears – Answering Readers’ Questions

Today I’m opening the Powered by Intuition Mailbag and answering a question from a subscriber whose “Intuition has disappeared.”

.
QUESTION:
“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!!”
Sincerely
MB, Alabama, USA
 .
ANSWER:
Dear MB,
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!

3 Steps to Accelerate Your Success with Intuition

3 Steps to Accelerate Your Success with Intuition

The new year has arrived with all the promise of a new day. This is your chance to start over and avoid the pitfalls that thwarted you last year because now you’ve learned from your mistakes. Congratulations.

Greater success with greater ease is what you want, right? When you set goals, especially in the beginning of the new year you want feel confident that you’ll achieve them. And, you want to arrive at your goal without hitting a lot of roadblocks that might cause you to have to undo or redo much of the work you’ve put in as well.

Imagine how much easier the previous year would have been if you could have avoided those costly mistakes that set you back in the first place. That’s even better. And imagine that there is a way to do this and it is something right at your fingertips that can learn to do.

How to avoid costly mistakes in the first place

Avoiding costly mistakes is achievable. And it’s something that some of the most successful people of our time, such as Albert Einstein and Bill Gates have been able to do naturally. It involves applying your intuition to finding the right solutions and making the correct choices in the first place, and course correcting as you go to be sure you stay on the right track.

Why Intuition?

Intuition is knowledge that comes to you all at once, is complete and doesn’t require ‘reasoning’ to arrive at. Reasoning is where you have a sequence of linear thoughts (one thought leads to the next and then the next) about a problem in order to arrive at a conclusive solution. Intuitive knowledge is receiving the “solution” all at once, minus the process of reasoning to get there.

Intuition is the Elegant Solution

Intuition is a shortcut that accelerates your success and helps you avoid costly mistakes. It’s the elegant way of gaining an “unfair advantage” to achieving your goals with more joy and less struggle. Although, there’s really nothing unfair about it since intuition is accessible to everyone. It’s just that many people distrust their intuition and talk themselves out of their “hunches” before giving them a chance.

Pledge to start relying on your intuition in the new year

Decide today that you will consult your intuition before making a decision instead of ignoring it and then possibly regretting your decision later. This is what the most successful people do. They check in with their gut before making a move and if something feels out of sorts they don’t move forward with that choice. I’m sure you can recall an instance where you disregarded that “little voice” and then later when things didn’t turn out well you said, “I knew I should have listened to my intuition!”

Now that you know better vow to do better and listen to your intuition in the new year. Use these three simple steps to accelerate your success with ease!

3 Steps to Accelerate Your Success With Intuition:

  1. Set your intention. Decide that you will check in with your intuition before making any big decisions regarding achieving your goals.
  2. Journal. Use a journal to document the decisions you’re grappling with and the answers that come to you intuitively. Leave some space to come back and add additional information.
  3. Record the outcome. As each of your decisions unfolds be sure to go back and write down exactly how things turned out.

When you do this you will be creating a powerful new habit of using your intuition and enhancing your intuition so that you become even more accurate with it. Best wishes for your continued success in the new year!

Intuition: 11 Great Reasons to Develop It

There are so many good reasons to develop your intuition in addition to hearing your own inner guidance more clearly.

Setting the intention to connect daily to your intuition leads to a reduction in the distracting, fearful and often sabotaging voices in your mind. That allows the true voice of  your own inner wisdom to surface above the noise.

Tuning in to your inner wisdom helps you find your purpose in life, develop better boundaries and say “no,” feel joyful and more satisfied, reduce stress levels, have better focus, less worry and more peace of mind and improve memory and decision-making to name just some of the benefits I wrote about in my best selling book, “The Intuition Principle.” 

Another benefit of developing your intuition is gaining a greater sense of  your own power.

Developing your intuition brings clarity around who you really are and what you were meant to do in this life. When you’re aligned with  your purpose you become clear on your value and that leads to to greater self empowerment.

When you’re self empowered you take action toward your goals and become an advocate for yourself to ensure that you live a fulfilling and meaningful life and living up to your full potential. You stop looking outside of yourself and relying on others to advocate for you or to make you happy or fill you up. You become self reliant, self sufficient and completely whole in every sense of the word. You take responsibility for every aspect of your life.

Realizing that your purpose benefits others helps you become more confident in yourself.  Having more confidence means you falter less in your decision making and make progress more easily toward achieving your goals.

Confidence also comes from hearing your inner guidance clearly and successfully following it. Each time you follow  your intuition and it leads to a successful outcome you develop greater faith, trust and confidence in yourself.

More Confidence and Self empowerment 

When you feel empowered you take more action to achieve your goals and taking more action is what leads to success.  Your less “confused, and stuck in overwhelm” because you have a clear sense of where you want to go and the confidence that you can get there. You’re not held back by insecurities of “not knowing what to do.”

Self empowerment gives you the confidence to know that you’ll take the right action to learn how to do what you need to do to get it done. You’re not always waiting for something outside of yourself to “get started.” When you lack confidence and feel disempowered you’re always in a “getting ready to get ready mode” instead of actually starting something. “Getting ready to get ready” is the illusion of thinking you’re doing something.

When you’re not clear on your purpose and the value you bring to the world you feel indecisive and shaky when making decisions. You do all sorts of things like “busywork” that don’t actually amount to anything because you’re unsure of what to do. This lack clarity and confusion on what action to take next is a vicious cycle of not being sure and either doing the same things over and over again or suddenly changing directions without putting any real thought into it. This cycle of feeling so unsure of yourself and doubting your direction, purpose and value are really disempowering and just ends up making you feeling worse.

The way out of this vicious cycle is to go within and build a strong connection to your inner wisdom; your intuition and letting it guide you. Working on your intuition is a practice of staying ever present and being mindful.

11 Reasons to Develop Your Intuition:

1. Reduction in the distracting, fearful and often sabotaging voices in your mind.

2. Tuning in to your inner wisdom helps you find your purpose in life

3. Develop better boundaries and be able to say “no.”

4. Feel joyful and more satisfied with your life

5. Reduced stress levels

6. Have better focus

7. Less worry and more peace of mind

8. Improved memory

9. Better at decision-making

10. Increases confidence

11. Become more empowered

How to Get Intuitive Guidance from Your Dreams (6 tips)

How to Get Intuitive Guidance from Your Dreams (6 tips)

Dreams are a rich source of intuitive guidance Dreams are a valuable source of  intuitive guidance.

Dreams are an easy way to begin accessing your intuitive wisdom. No one has to teach you how to go to sleep or how to have a dream. You’re already an expert. There’s only one thing to master and that is recalling your dream.

The two most valuable types of dreams are the intuitive guidance dream and the precognitive dream.

An intuitive guidance dream gives you an answer to a problem in your life and/or insight into a challenge your are facing in life.

A precognitive dream foretells of a future event.

Just recently I two such dreams in one night.

The first one was so unusual that I woke up from it, which is probably why I remembered it so vividly.

I was standing on the sidewalk when a car turned in from the street to a driveway. As the car stopped next to me waiting for the garage doors to go up, I saw a young man in his forties with a bandage on his head in the passenger seat. He turned to look at me. I was startled to see that his eyes were rolling around in his head.

An older silver-haired gentleman was driving the car. As the garage doors went up I saw there was an operating room set up at the back of the garage. In a “flash” I realized the silver haired man was a “Hannibal Lechter” type and he had been slowly cannibalizing this man’s brain. The older gentleman had been eying me while he waited for the doors to open. I suddenly thought, “I better get away from here before I become his next victim.” (more…)

This Valentine’s Day Open Your Intuitive Heart

The more love and care you send out toward a person or issue, the more you come into alignment with your spirit, and the more your intuition comes on-line. –Doc Childre and Howard Martin, HeartMath Solution

Did you know we each have two hearts?

The Intuitive heart, emathy, compassionOne heart that beats in our chest and an invisible one pulsing with light and love? I’m talking of course, of your “spiritual” heart. The spiritual heart is the center of love within each of us.

If you have ever watched your young child in a play at school and felt your chest fill and your eyes brim with tears of joy, these reactions were generated by the spiritual heart.

The intoxicating feeling of falling in love is also born from the spiritual heart.

And so is the compassion and empathy we feel when we reach out to embrace and comfort someone who is going through troubling times. (more…)
