We all have an intuitive nature. It is our first instinct, our “gut reaction”, our feelings about others, and our “knowingness”. Our intuition is somewhat like any other muscle in our body — it strengthens with use and discipline.
As we develop our body’s muscles, we become stronger, healthier, more active, alive and aware. So it is with our intuitive or “psychic” muscles. And just as there are those who have a natural tendency for strong healthy athletic bodies, there are those who have a natural tendency for stronger and more developed intuitive bodies.
Developing our intuition is a process and a discipline, one that is easy, enjoyable and rewarding in many ways. The intuitive process begins with simply acknowledging that we are intuitive by nature. The next steps are rewarding in and of themselves — meditation and breathwork become the staples for accessing our intuition and awareness, since learning how to meditate creates a calm relaxed foundation for our day.
This new relaxed focus then brings into our awareness more and more wisdom and guidance for not only ourselves, but for others. The energies around us speak to us in many different ways. They speak in non-verbal messages as a sensing, a visual symbol, a knowingness or just a feeling. These are all descriptions of different kinds of energies — intuitive energies.
Combining this awareness of energies with proper breathwork can enable us to “plug into” a finely-tuned, subtle form of vibration. Carl Jung called this the “collective unconscious”. He explained this as a pool of our thoughts and feelings in the form of energy.
When we are “finely tuned” to this pool of information, we can begin to “read” or decipher what these symbols and energies mean. This is what is known as being “intuitive” or “psychic”, and it has also been referred to as the “floating messages” we send to and from each other.
All our thoughts and feelings are energy. All energy is a vibration, and these vibrations “float” all around us. We can learn how to tune into these floating molecules of vibration, learn how to interpret them, and begin to gain wisdom insight and guidance from this pool of knowledge. Being able to distinguish “what means what” and who it relates to is the difficult part — the result of the highly-skilled development of our psychic muscle.
A truly gifted psychic will be able to determine all these details and much more. Determining time in this pool of “floating messages” — past, present, and future – is what most people want to know, and the hardest thing to determine.
Seeing or sensing the future is called “clairvoyance”, a French word meaning “clear seeing”. Most intuitives are clairvoyant and can ascertain information for others by focusing on the energy vibration, “seeing” a vision symbol, or sensing (feeling) the situation and beginning to interpret its meaning.
Strictly “sensing” energies is called “clairsentience, a French word meaning “clear sensing”. Simply defined, this is the common “gut feelings” we instinctively possess.
