Each one of us is born with the innate gift of intuition, The Sixth Sense. Nope, it’s not just a cheesy movie. The sixth sense is the gift of knowing without having all of the information. Empathic people would describe it as more of a feeling. There are a variety of different intuitive abilities out there and we, as spiritual beings in human form, lose how to gather this information and use it in our everyday lives.
But we all have it, I promise you!
Have you ever:
-Known who was calling you before looking at your phone?
-Thought of a person who then emailed you moments later?
-Knew about a situation before you were told?
-Could feel when someone needed your help?
-Knew what someone was going to say to you before they told you?
Intuitive messages can come through thoughts, feelings, sounds, smells, visions, and dreams. We all have the ability to gain more awareness and use our intuitive gifts to help guide us in our lives.
So, if we are born with it, how does it go away?
As infants and into preschooler years our intuitive mind opens up and stays receptive to the information coming in and going out. Kids act as sponges that soak up all that we teach and what they see in the world around them. I am convinced that they “see” so much more than we do simply because they have unbiased egos.
Once children enter grade school, the intuition shifts because we are taught to shut it down. “Don’t be silly, there’s nothing there.” “Stop daydreaming.” “There’s no such thing as ghosts.” Children who were once receptive begin to question and doubt their inner voices. Doubting our own inner wisdom is psychic suicide.
Reprogramming our doubt into trust takes persistent work because sometimes many years pass before we regain that intuitive mind back. I believe doubting what we see as adults is natural because we want to have logical explanations, however intuitive knowledge isn’t always logical. Sometimes messages that come take weeks or months to come into fruition or make sense to the ego mind. This instant gratification world that we live in makes the intuitive mind seem painfully slow! Can I have answers please?! Allowing to feel and be receptive egoless beings becomes crucial to regaining the intuitive knowledge and wisdom that lies dormant within.
To tap into this knowledge we must TRUST, ALLOW, and BE STILL to listen to our inner voice guide us to our pure understanding.
