COLBY PSYCHIC REBEL: “Creating Fulfillment Through Intuition”

Intuiting.jpg

Intuition is the most effective tool we have in our spiritual arsenal to create a fulfilling life.  Each of us holds the gift of intuition.  It usually comes in the form of a “gut” feeling.  Although most of have been told that intuition is that primal instinct that serves as our personal compass, we forget to use it in our everyday life.  Perhaps, that is because it’s the most rudimental of our senses and we almost dismiss the simplicity of it.  In our desire to be perfect, we can overcomplicate such a basic tool.

Intuition can occur in many forms.  It may be the hair that stands on the back of our neck warning us to changes lanes to avoid a traffic accident or we may get the feeling that a loved one is about to pass and then we receive the call notifying us of our worst fear.  It may be that feeling in the pit of our stomach raising our awareness to an infidelity within a relationship or the mother’s instinct in knowing her child is in danger.

Sometimes it can show as a spontaneous feeling that springs itself on us in a flash of information, or it can linger as a gnawing thought that we attempt to push away.  Intuition is strong and relentless.  How many times have we tried to push a feeling away, yet it stays ever present until we listen to it?

Intuition is that innate sense that we all have.  It’s our natural survival instinct, our most primal sense, yet so many of us forget to use it and more importantly, trust it.  When we surrender to intuition, it provides invaluable navigation within our lives.

We can use intuition as our compass in decision-making allowing us to continuously move in a direction that is in alignment with our soul.  Decisions no longer need to be stressful, difficult or complex.  When we find ourselves struggling with indecisiveness, we are being reminded that we are in our logical mind.  We are not using our intuitive faculty.  When we co-mingle our personal beliefs, fears or experiences with our intuition, we are merely manifesting a false reality.  We then tend to create imaginary scenarios in which our decision could be wrong, so we refrain from committing.

How many times have we ignored a “hit” of information like the snooze on the morning alarm, only to realize later that it had been accurate?  It’s time for us to wake up to our inner alarm system!

The good news is that intuition is a muscle.  The more we use it, the stronger it gets.  By finding ways to strengthen our primal sense, we ultimately can create a more fulfilling life.  A life that contains fewer regrets, mistakes and missed opportunities.  When we use our intuition and trust it unconditionally, we are guided under our soul’s narrative that will always be working for our highest good.

 

There are several simple exercises that we can practice to build our intuition. Here are four exercises to help get the muscle growing!

 

Telephone Telepathy:  When the phone rings, take a moment to tap in intuitively to see who the call is from prior to answering it.

Elevator Exercise:  If waiting for an elevator, stand in front of the one that feels will open first.  It doesn’t matter if we are wrong, it’s building that muscle and the willingness to trust that is important.  When standing in an elevator and it comes to a stop, tap in to feel if it will be a man or a woman entering the elevator, or if others are in the elevator, who is next to get off?

Deciding with Breath:  If torn with a decision, take a moment to breathe in and relax the logical mind.  Release the rationale behind a decision and feel the decision.  See if it comes easier to let go of the mind chatter.

Dream with Intention:  Before going to sleep, we can set an intention for a symbol to come in our slumber.  Then letting go and seeing if that symbol comes to us in a dream, or in a message.  In our sub-conscience state, we are more relaxed which allows our intuition to flow more smoothly.  Keeping a journal by the bedside is an excellent way to record successes and messages!

 

There are so many ways our intuition can benefit us.  It releases stress, anxiety and allows us to trust our paths without the second-guessing since we know our higher-selves are guiding us along our path.  Taking time each day to integrate these exercises into our lives will not only strengthen our intuitive muscle, but it may just lead to a more fulfilling and balanced life.

SPIRITUAL UNITE: “7 True Lightworker Traits”

7 True Lightworker Traits

A lightworker can be anyone, from any faith, culture and yes even animals can be lightworkers who are here to guide the planet from negative energy.

A lightworker is very much a evolved soul who has incarnated for a particular purpose to help this planet in some way.

The term lightworker is not a label

Many get stuck on this term lightworker, so it becomes a label.  Know that everyone on this planet is a potential lightworker, some lightworker’s are awake and know the reason for being here, and then there are others who are asleep and not aware of their purpose.

So are you a lightworker?

Here are 7 signs you may be a lightworker:

1.  You are psychic

Lightworkers tend to be psychic, but not all are clairvoyants.  The first batch of lightworkers who came here were the psychic ones, and these lightworkers began by reading channelled information.

As a Lightworker you are probably psychic because you have an interest in communicating with your spirit guides.

2.  You are sensitive

As a lightworker your spirit is very pure, many of the negative and cruel things happening in this world can be tough for you to understand.  You also may have difficulty dealing with people who have intense emotions like anger.

3.  You are committed to personal growth

Being a lightworker, you will experience much emotional turmoil.  Life may stretch you to your limits but you are acutely aware of the process, and you work through it for the greater good.

4.  It’s okay to be alone

As a Lightworker you are isolated from others, misunderstood or lonely.  Since you don’t like picking up negative energy and emotions from other people, it’s important for you to spend time alone.

5.  You may be a Starseed

As a lightworker, you may feel a connection to stars, or you may feel like you incarnated on earth, but you are from somewhere else in the universe.

6.  A strong desire to help people

As a Lightworker you are very empathic, so it’s natural for you to help others.  Lightworker’s take up jobs as a counsellor, nurse, or even a teacher, lightworkers are dedicated to making a solid contribution to humanity.

7.  You are a voice for Humankind

As a Lightworker you are a voice for humankind, you do this with your creative expression.  You find great fulfilment using your self-expression, knowledge, creativity and intuitive nature to make an impact on people you meet.

CHRISTINA SARICH: ” 4 Super Powers Of The Highly Empathic”

mind-brain-storm-140721

Many empathic or highly sensitive people feel that their ability to feel so many different emotional energies in their environments is a curse, but with recent research suggesting that empaths are actually highly psychic, you may want to hone your empathic skills instead of hiding them away, or bemoaning their existence.  Here are 4 super-powers of empathic people, that you too can develop:

1.) Read People’s Minds

Empaths have a form of psychic ability that is considered a rare gift.

Mind reading isn’t a parlor trick.  We all do it to some degree, taking cues from people’s body language, and verbal discourse.  A skilled non-verbal decoder can tell if someone is lying, someone is happy or sad (even if they claim to be the opposite), or if they are manipulating others with their speech and gestures.  We can all be ‘mentalists’ picking up on inconsistencies in someone’s words and body language, but empaths take it a step further.

Many empaths receive psychic images, statements, hues, or smells intuitively which indicate to them, a reality beyond which most are aware.  If you pick up on these energies unwillingly, you could instead focus on them, and see if you can create an even stronger psychic experience, turning your empathic skills into full-blown ESP.  Then you can literally walk a mile in someone else’s shoes, and know exactly what that would feel like. IMAGINE the possibilities.

How many wrong turns, missteps, or arguments could you avoid?  How much success could you experience learning from others’ mistakes?  Knowing when someone is lying, or telling the truth?  Priceless.  Instead of shunning your empathic ability to feel everything — use it to become a true mind reader.

2.) Become Your Own Emotion Superhero

If you have a crazy ability to empathize with others, why not turn this around, and use it to your own benefit?  So many people today are completely disconnected from their own emotions.  You aren’t.  This may seem like a tremendous burden — feeling what they ought to feel, AND feeling what you feel, but if you were able to develop some discernment, and focus on your own emotional growth, this gift can become your greatest super power.

The act of listening to your own feelings and thoughts is self-empathy — it’s compassion in action.  It could completely and utterly change how you communicate with people.

For instance, let’s say you are visiting family for the holidays or a long weekend and one of your uncles says, “Don’t you know this president is going to ruin the nation?”  Your internal dialogue as an empath might be something like, “Oh my God, he has no clue how every person is affecting this country, and this planet, and the people who are running the show aren’t presidents or politicians, they may not even be on this planet! What an idiot.”  This is what your emotional triggers might be around a simple statement that someone from your family makes.  But what if you honored those feelings and learned how to communicate them lovingly?

What if instead, you internally stated, “Wow, hearing what my uncle just said alarms me, to the point of even feeling panicked because that statement doesn’t agree with the world I see, or how I believe this Universe is formed, and I’m scared of being at odds with my family member.”  Super power indeed.

Empaths can trigger heart-based communication by honoring their emotions.

You could instead say to your Uncle from this emotionally aware place, “Yes, we all ruin the world a little or make it closer to a paradise every day by the thoughts, deeds, and actions we engage in.”  This statement might go over his head, or open up a whole different type of dialogue that is more in alignment with who you are.

3.) Transmute the Negative Only You Can Feel

So many people are affected by negative influences which are invisible in the world today.  Empaths are acutely aware of this.  An empath can even walk into a room where a negative conversation or act just transpired, and though it isn’t currently happening, they can sense the negative energy that lingers.

Flowers can change the energy of an environment.

Instead of being a victim of this sensitivity to energy —  look for positive energy first, and TRANSMUTE that negative energy.  Practice a quiet five-minute Tonglen meditation.  Bring high-energy plants or flowers to a place with low energy, or simply utter encouraging words and thoughts to people around you who were also affected by the negativity.  Even better?  Find the humor in the situation and share it.  Even the most vile circumstance has a funny side to it.  Use laughter to literally create intimacy and openness where there was none.

4.) Turn Your Sensitivity Into a Highly Coveted Skill

Do the wrong sheets make you break out in hives?  Are certain smells absolutely revolting to you?  Do non-organic foods cause you terrible gastrointestinal distress?  Do you need quiet in order to sleep, and alone time in order to off-load all the smells, sights, sounds, and emotions you’ve absorbed all day long?  Instead of looking at this trait as if it were a burden, use it to your advantage.

Need more beauty and peace as an empath?  Create it yourself.

You could become a perfumer, and advise companies on removing chemicals and adding natural scents to their products.  You could help others eat divinely prepared food by becoming an organic chef.  You could develop quiet spaces like gardens, libraries, or meditation rooms that not only you need, but that others would revel in, without even realizing that they were desperate for your gift.  Use those sensitivities to create a peaceful haven in the world, and your empathic skills are no longer a curse, but used to fulfill your life’s purpose.

There are many more ways you can put your empathic super-powers to good use.  Feel free to share your ideas in the comments section, or when you share this article to social media.

ANNA LEMIND: “Exploring The Mystery Of Intuition”

mystery-2

Intuition is full of temptations.  How can we keep from trying to explain something that came out of nowhere to solve a problem as something that was “sent down from above”?

Intuition is often referred to as “readily available knowledge“, which has the property to “suddenly” appear in the head of an individual.  But we often fail to take into account the fact that we have long been preoccupied with solving this problem.

How it works

Intuition is viewed as a method to attain philosophical knowledge, ability to perceive information, the method of decision-making in critical situations, and ability to successfully deal with the situation during uncertainty, and also as an instinct.  With such an extensive activity context, it is necessary to clarify that “intuition” is primarily a cognitive process.  However, it does not work the way we are accustomed to think: when thinking process leads to intuitive response. This process follows “different rules”: after a long process of thinking over and over and failing to come up with an idea, we suddenly come up with the right idea!  When trying to explain intuition, we must remember that we do not have enough knowledge about the workings of the brain inside our skulls.  The fact is that at the conscious level, only a tiny fraction of information is processed.  Not surprisingly, our unconscious state contains much more information than we are able to notice.

We can confidently say that an individual knows a lot more than he thinks he does!  After all, any problem to be constantly focused on can exert a lot of pressure!  And, as philosophers like to say, “the ray of enlightenment” requires as much energy as well-known laser beam, so prolonged pressure to think over and over ultimately prevents creative solutions.  Switching to other types of activities and taking breaks can be very helpful.  Strictly speaking, intuition differs from other types of cognitive activities primarily by having unconscious “incubation period”, “distraction from the problem,” which creates the illusion of surprise in the final outcome.

Trust your body

In general, there are body, sensual, intellectual and social types of intuition.

Body (or physical) intuition.  By and large, intuition is the ability to use “unconventional” sources of information, specifically, our own body sensations in order to solve a problem.  No wonder that in some areas of psychological practice a popular phrase “trust your body” is used.  People who use body intuition are doing exactly that, they rely on body sensations and based on those, they reach conclusions and make decisions in areas where other sources of information are traditionally utilized.  Some of these examples include decision-making when purchasing shares at stock exchange or during relationships with others people.

The source of knowledge also includes “body memory”, a striking example of which are unique skills of athletes and musicians.  If you try to consciously figure out how the ball hits the soccer goal or a basket, then this will certainly be a result of a minimum set of complex physical calculations.  And an athlete, who has no idea about physical calculations and equations, simply sends the ball into the basket, guided solely by the acquired intuitive body sensations.  The example with musicians is even more perplexing.  It is known within professional circles that a violinist is able to feel the change in musical tone, “spacing out” with a fingertip the lengths in tenths of a millimeter.

Intuition post-factum

Sensual or emotional intuition. Strictly speaking, this type of intuition is the most “famous” since it is familiar to almost everyone, and is even reflected in such famous expressions as “cold feet”, “stone heart”, “troubled soul”, which show manifestations of anxiety that plays an essential role in our sense of security.  This type of intuition, perhaps, is also the most widely available as various types of “hunches”.  It sometimes happens in life, when everything seems to be perfect, but the heart and soul are restless and tell otherwise.  But not everyone is capable of trusting these intuitive signs, and notice these manifestations of anxiety some time after something had happened.  And then they begin recalling that they did not feel right the day before for some reason, while adding to this a bunch of prophetic dreams and premonitions.  Bearing this in mind, this type of intuition is perhaps the most unverifiable, because it is a characteristic of those who lived through an event.  And after the fact, it is difficult to distinguish between the presence of intuition and fantasies or desire to become famous.  Although it is widely known that one of the passengers of the sunken “Titanic” did not board the ship at the last moment, having forewarnings.

Insight solves puzzles

Intellectual intuition. Conventional science views this type of intuition as a complex joint outcome of the rational and sensory perception, when a difficult task of intellectual thinking is aided by old and reliable methods of understating the world through symbols and images.  If we examine numerous examples of “insights” in technical and scientific fields, it is apparent that the “enlightenment” contains some symbolic “hint”.  These hints help us to understand the essence of what a few seconds ago seemed just a jumble of formulas, facts and results of calculations devoid of any logic.  It can be that the elements of insight has long been brewed in the head of the creator and intuitive approach only helped to solve the puzzle.  No wonder Robert Sternberg and Todd Labert identified five “components” of creativity: knowledge of the matter, creative thinking skills, reckless personality, intrinsic motivation and creative environment.  Intellectual intuition sometimes includes “subcategories”: professional, scientific and creative, although there is no need in categorizing them this way. All of the three subcategories are identical to each other.

10 seconds without mysticism

Social intuition.  Famous American psychologist David Myers in his book “Intuition: Its Powers and Perils” also identifies social intuition, by which he means many different in origins types of unconscious features of our perception of individuals of our own kind.  So, for example, figuring out whether a certain person is dangerous to us and what his intentions are, takes only ten seconds after we first met with this person.  Our conscious and unconscious assessments of a stranger often diverge, even to the point of being the opposite.  The more often we see a person, the more attractive he or she seems to us.  We tend to attribute certain properties to someone we meet, relying on unrelated factors, such as environment in which we have met the person.

Mystical intuition

In order to paint the complete picture, we must mention that the outstanding Russian philosopher Nikolai Lossky has also introduced the type of mystical intuition, by which he meant something related to the highest form of intellectual knowledge in the field of “abstract ideas”, the type of mathematical way of thinking. In general, this kind of intuition can be safely called the “most rare” because it is clearly a characteristic of only several dozen of people in history, most of whom never intersected in time and space.

A wife or a psychic?

Men’s and women’s intuition.  In conclusion, it is worth to mention the differences in intuitive abilities among genders.  More correctly, perhaps, it is not about male and female intuition, but rather about different abilities in its use.  Numerous studies show that women are much more “intuitive” than men.  Traditionally, it is related to a number of female characteristics, including greater empathy, which is based on better recognition of the human emotional states.  Life experience confirms that women are more precise in determining whether a person loves someone, or pretends to, or who of the two people is the big boss and who is subordinate, whether a particular person is lying or telling the truth.  So, all sorts of jokes about “psychic” abilities of wives trying to determine the truthfulness of “presented evidence” from a guilty spouse can be quite justifiable.

ANDREA SCHULMAN: “11 Intriguing Signs Of Intuition”

intuitive 2 (4).jpg

Are you aware of the signs of intuition you receive?

Intuition is defined as:

 

“the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning.”

Now, while it is true that some people are more intuitive than others, intuition is something all of us experience regularly. You are an intuitive being, whether you realize it or not!

With that being said, here are a few of my favorite signs of intuition. Have you experienced any of these lately?

1.  Knowing the car in front of you is going to merge or change lanes.

2.  Getting a brilliant idea out of the blue.

3.  Hearing or thinking the word someone is going to say before it comes out of his or her mouth.

4.  Hearing about or thinking about a song before it plays on the radio (sometimes you may hear the first bar of a song right before it starts).

5.  Just knowing what someone is thinking about while they are being quiet.

6.  Understanding the root of someone’s “problem” without them telling you what it is.

7.  Premonitions about accidents, illnesses or injuries.

8.  Getting a “vibe” about a particular situation. For example, walking into a room and just “feeling” that it isn’t a good place for you to be at the moment.

9.  Knowing you can trust someone you are just meeting for the first time, or feeling like you’ve known them already for a lifetime.

10.  Suddenly knowing how to fix a problem you’ve never solved before, without having to think it through.

11.  Knowing you are about to “win” and then winning. Maybe you get a premonition that you are about to get a strike at the bowling alley or your scratch off ticket will be a winner.

 

Do you have any other fun signs of intuition you’ve experienced? Drop a comment below and share!

XO, Andrea

KRISTOPHER LOVE: “7 Tips To Awaken Your Hidden Psychic Power”

de06dc46ad8e315e17134e5035e218f6

Have you ever known the phone was going to ring before it happened?  Or maybe you had an intuition about what someone was going to say before they said it?  Have you ever had a dream that came true?  Some people are said to be fully psychic but we are all intuitive to some degree.

If you follow these steps you’ll improve your psychic abilities to a noticeable degree and they may even become useful to you in your daily life:

Inner Psychic Tip #1 – Meditation

While there are many meditation practices all over the world, one thing is for certain, quieting your mind is the first step toward understanding that you are not your thoughts and that thoughts simply exist.  When you have a clear distinction between what you know as you and what you know as thoughts, you can begin to witness the nature of thoughts that are in what we call “the field”.  The field of thoughts are available like Wi-Fi signals with certain places and people being more conductive for them and some places being less so.

Thoughts are more seen as a translation of energy, some people being clear translators and others being very distorted.  The more into our ego we are, the less of a clear channel you can receive.  This is because the energy you translate will tend to become what we call “personalized” by our personalities of course.

The best psychics are able to stop the mind chatter and allow the messages from angels, spirit guides, departed loved ones and the Divine to come through.  If you wish to develop your own intuitive abilities, meditation is key to calming the mental chatter.

Inner Psychic Tip #2 – Trust Your Gut

Most people have accumulated some sort of negative experiences along the path of following the natural flow of life.  There is a clear difference between following your gut instinct and going with the flow.

There is an instinctive magnetism that is created when your spirit senses the path you should take.  HOWEVER a lot of people go with the flow and ignore their instinct by following the herd or going down the safe route.  Remember the road less traveled always requires a trailblazer.  This time that’s you.  Listen to the inner source more often and eventually you wont listen to anything else.

Inner Psychic Tip #3 – Get Creative

Remember how I said the road less traveled requires a trailblazer?  The creative spark that exists within you is an extremely important component to your ability to channel information from “the field”.

The more creative you become, the more in tune you will be when your guides, your family, or yourself calls you to listen on a higher plane of thought.  The creative space requires you to tune in and allow life to unfold through your body.  From inventions, speech, art, etc… you can use this energy to impact the world around you and its great practice for a psychic medium.

Inner Psychic Tip #4 – Take Classes

Many good psychics teach classes to help others to connect and develop their abilities.  Some even teach classes online, which can be just as inspiring and effective as those taught in person.  Search around and see what teachers or classes resonate with you.  Again, trust your gut.  More often than not, you’ll just have a good feeling about a certain teacher or class that is right for you.

Try to avoid teachers who may have a “my way or the highway” attitude.  A good spiritual teacher will be able to help you navigate and better understand what your own special gifts or abilities are.

Inner Psychic Tip #5 – Communicate With Your Soul

As you begin your journey to uncover your own unique abilities, you may not be fully aware of your spirit and how it works in mysterious ways to help you.  That’s okay.  It may sound crazy but as you begin to speak with yourself, you will gain a clear channel of intuition through your environment and your subtle sense of energy around you.  You may even hear clear messages in the form of audible voice, and sometimes its just a magnetism you sense from “the field” which you can then translate into an understanding instantly.  Write down any messages you think you may be getting, even if you’re not sure.

Inner Psychic Tip #6 – Keep a Dream Journal

The dream state is the one plane of existence that is specifically designed to reflect your subconscious mind.  When you are in the dream state your mind is obviously in a more relaxed state and thus allows you to reflect, real-time, in the form of stories and interactions.  The more you write down these dreams the clearer your recall will become.

Some people even have instances of coming in contact with past and future selves, spirit guides, angelic beings etc.  When you come to a certain level of attention during the dream state you can navigate the collective subconscious known as the astral plane and this is a point in which we can also begin a deeper navigation into our psychic powers.

Inner Psychic Tip #7 – Learn About Your Chakras

Chakras are energy point within your body and that can provide you with different ways to access psychic information.  Keeping your energy system clear and healthy is as important to your well being as bathing and brushing your teeth.  Being able to understand this energy is vital to your success in developing your psychic senses.  There is plenty of information on the internet that may guide you to YouTube or even books & PDFs.

We all have the ability to tap into our psychic abilities and as we get older they become more and more useful to us as our responsibility in the world increases.
