“Before the internet and the World Wide Web, humans shared an energetic psychic web that transcended cultures. This is the third eye (sixth) chakra at work.” Nanette Giacoma, Open for Business: How to Achieve Professional Success Using the Power of Chakras.
So how many of you want to believe you are psychic/intuitive, but have these niggling doubts about you ability, or whether you can really rely on your intuition? How many of you have been told to “use your head”? How many times have you been taught that facts are the best way to make a decision? Or, my favorite, don’t let your imagination run wild – be rational! I grew up with all of these Psychic Myths, and they are pervasive in our culture.
Strong Intuition, open-mindedness, insight, clear vision, symbolic thinking, a healthy imagination, and seeing yourself as a fluid, spiritual being are energetic goals of the sixth (third-eye) chakra. Intuition or psychic abilities draw on the oneness of the Universe to focus on the whole rather than the parts. You look for the interconnection and similarities between seemingly unrelated things and trust that there is meaning in the correlation, even if it doesn’t make sense to your rational brain.
There are different types of psychic/intuitive knowing. They are called the “clairs.” The clairs are about how you receive intuitive information. There is clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, and claircognizance. These are innate. Everyone has these abilities. And they can be learned. None of these are better another, they are just ways to receive intuitive information that makes sense for you. You may already be using one or more of these without really realizing it.
Despite my deep belief in intuitive wisdom, Psychic Myths continue to be a sub-conscious nuisance for me – even after many successful intuitive readings. It’s a bit of Imposter Syndrome – doubting my abilities despite evidence to the contrary. So, since September, 2020, I’ve been doing some deeper intuitive training and confidence building. I will complete my Level III training September 2021.
As part of this, I’m working with my current Guide – The Wizard of Awareness – to help me to be more aware of when I’m operating out of a lower vibrational state (Psychic Myths). When I realize that my thinking mind has run amok (again), I take a deep breath, recenter, and shift my attention to my my observation zone (sixth chakra) where I allow myself to follow my expanded awareness into the Universal Web of Intelligence.
This is a process. On the one hand, my higher-self knows my intuitive readings are truly benefiting clients (and me), while my small-self continues to release her Imposter Syndrome. Perhaps you are operating out of some Psychic Myths of your own. Here are some tools to help you connect more fully with your intuition.
- Clairvoyance – Clear Seeing. Using oracle cards, ask an open-ended question like, “What is my next right step in X,Y,Z situation?” What do you notice first about the card you pull? What draws your attention? What feelings, memories, or thoughts do they spark? I recommend allowing yourself to interpret the images on the cards rather than reading what is written about them in the booklets. In this way, you are developing and relying on your inner seeing for answers.
- Clairaudience – Listening for Intutive Messages. Notice if you can distinguish between the voices of your small-self and the quiet voice of your inner guidance. If your small-self is loud, stop the inner dialogue, take a deep breath, and recenter. Do this every time you catch yourself listening to the small-self. Allow your awareness to find the silence in between. Come back to the silent space over and over, and strengthen your ability to listen for the quiet voice of your intuition. Try to catch the whispering voice of your intuition.
- Clairsentience – Feeling Mood Vibrations. Some people pick up the emotional or physical feelings of others. Next time you are with a friend, family member or colleague notice if you how you feel before you meet and then how you feel after. If you have a big shift in your mood, it is probable you are tapping into their inner physical or emotional feelings.
- Claircognizance – Inner Knowing. Ways of working with your intuition that might be useful if you tend to be claircognizant are numerology, astrology, sacred geometry, and quantum physics. Each of these tends to blend science and mysticism. They feed the desire to know and understand in rational ways and help make the connection with the mysteries of your intuition.
Fact – You are Psychic/Intuitive. The biggest thing is to practice! You can start by noticing how you usually receive intuitive information. How does it come in? Do you see it in your mind’s eye? Can you hear your guides whispering to you? Perhaps you just get a feeling about it or you just know. As with most things, the more you practice something, the more natural it becomes.
