What is intuition? Is it real? Is women’s intuition a fact, a reality, or a trumped up catch-all for a reason beyond reason? This label of “a woman’s intuition” has been scorned, scoffed at, blamed, credited, admired, dissected, believed, not believed and mostly credited to women. However, I believe this “unknown something” is secretly envied by most everyone. We describe this as an “it” – as a source unknown and hard to believe. Yet it seems to be accepted as matter-of-fact, non-debatable, even highly regarded, and not to be questioned. To describe what “it” is, is hard to define.
To develop it is becoming more and more of a sought after skill. This skill of intuition is, indeed, one that can be enhanced and developed by all of us. As with any skill, some of us are born with abilities towards a particular skill. Others choose to develop a skill with discipline, dedication and determination. Then there are others less skilled in one area but very skilled in another. This can be likened to body building. Some people are born very athletic and able to develop their physical muscles easily and quickly. Others choose to develop their muscular bodies. The Intuitive muscle, or awareness, works and is enhanced much the same way. We are born with intuition! Some of us have extraordinary skills at it, and others choose to develop their full potential.
Many people enter a course of study not realizing their own potential. They are drawn into intuitive development classes because they are intrigued with the possibilities, have experienced some type of intuition or are searching for self-confidence and guidance. Through the many years I have been teaching intuitive development, I am always amazed and delighted when students begin to experience their own internal intuition emerge. Enabling students to actually experience a variety of intuitive abilities in classes with instruction, coaching and encouragement aids development. Intuitive awareness is there. It just needs a pathway to awareness. Being validated and confirmed by others spurs us on to continue. We learn to believe in our own self.
Edgar Cayce is one of the most famed intuitives. He left us a legacy of insights, guidance and wisdom about our spiritual awareness, karmic patterns, heath connections, and intuition. He encouraged everyone to believe in and develop their connection to their own source of intuition.
Dr. Norman Shealy, esteemed neurosurgeon, author, founder and president of The American Holistic Medical Association and director/founder of HOLOS University Graduate Seminary program, credits intuition as a new field worthy of extensive study in a university environment. Caroline Myss, author of “Anatomy Of The Spirit” and other works about intuition, health and spiritual meaning has also written and taught extensively about our intuitive awareness. Both have created a focused study of intuition and spiritual awareness worthy of degree granting and career direction. What was once called women’s intuition now has been upgraded and promoted to a high level of acceptability, credibility and availability to us all.
This perceived hidden and unrecognizable intuitive awareness has been seeping into our daily lives more and more.
We are searching for more meaning in our lives. More guidance to create our lives into what we dream about. We want to attract all that is great and grand and glorious for us. We all want a peaceful happy abundant purpose-filled life. We want to be free of our hidden fears, insecurities, and struggles. Learning how to release those blocks through inner awareness allows us to be clear and open to our intuition. We are searching for new meaning and enhanced freedom in our lives.
Developing our intuition is the pathway to self and to our Higher Self. Women’s intuition, which was once considered weird and unexplainable, now has a new perspective. We are beginning to hear of courses, classes, workshops and personal development seminars aimed at developing the intuitive nature. Transpersonal psychology, Intuitive Counseling, spiritual psychology, intuitive energy healing and medical intuition are a few of the courses now being offered in a variety of alternative and holistic colleges and universities. Classes and workshops are offering us a plethora of methods and training to develop our internal source of awareness a.k.a. intuition!
Thus, intuition is emerging out of obscurity to a fully recognizable source of wisdom and guidance for us all.
Our intuitive muscle skills can be developed, accessed and finely tuned to enhance our lives, our decisions and our happiness and our purpose. Intuition is a locked-up source just waiting for us to open up, click on and wake up. This light-bulb awareness can begin to allow our life to work for us easily, quickly and joyfully, (my favorite mantra)!
Becoming aware of our intuitive nature is how we plug into our own internal assistant. Transformation of self through our own intuition can be fun, exciting and rewarding. Pathways open up for you. Practical daily life can become one of ease and serendipity. Opening up our own internal source, our intuition, shows us how to become aware of the opportunities surrounding us. Living well can be attained. Each one of us has intuitive potential. It is just a matter of learning how to listen to, pay attention to and become aware of how our intuition comes to us. Awareness is the key to what the Universe has in store for us.
