1/24/11—Cultivating Your Inner Knowing

Today's Draw: The High Priestess from the Medicine Woman tarot. When, if ever, do you consult your intuitive "knowing"? Do you trust your intuition over other clues available to you? What do you believe about psychic ability?
In the Medicine Woman deck, the High Priestess card also bears the word "seeker". She is one who looks within for answers. She consults her body, her mind and her inner knowing above all else.

Most people will acknowledge some sort of intui...tive and/or coincidental "knowing" that happens now and again and is oddly accurate. It can be anything from the lane you choose at the grocery store to the plane you don't get on that crashes. Maybe the appearance of this intuition doesn't seem all predictable for you. It just happens and you may or may not listen, but sometimes you find out when you don't listen that you should have. And that's about all the thought you put into it.

But what you may not know is that this "knowing" is a "muscle" you can strengthen. And when you strengthen it, it can become more present and reliable in your life. And that's what it means to be psychic. Some people are born with stronger gifts than others, but all psychics are made in one way or another. Even someone who is born extraordinarily gifted has to learn how to use it. And make no mistake...we ALL have this. We've had it since we were cavemen and probably relied on more strongly then for our survival. It is within us and can be a valuable source of information.

Here's a simple way to start building it. Next time you need to make a choice or are wondering how something might turn out, close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, then, while inhaling, thinking of one of your realities. For example, if you want to know whether you should move to Chicago or stay in Atlanta, inhale thinking of the reality of moving to Chicago. Then note how your body your gut feels. Then the do the same thing with Atlanta and note how your gut feels. When people talk about "gut feelings" this is what they mean. For me, I get a little nervous butterfly in my core when the answer is "no" and a very pleasant emptiness when the answer is "yes". It may be different for you, but play with it to find out.
