Listening to your inner spirit will always guide you unerringly, without equivocation, and in every circumstance. This journey of life is a process, an unfolding of events that are meant for our highest good.
The more frequently you can connect with this idea, the easier it becomes to find the gifts and lessons in challenging experiences. We build awareness and discover how to become a witness with presence.
Trust yourself and allow your spirit to open to the flow of this guidance.
Learning to listen to my spirit has been a long and tumultuous journey. Today I welcome my spiritual connection.
My intuitive abilities came about through necessity. I believe in my heart, my life would be unimaginably different had I not learned how to listen to my spirit.
Large chunks of my life were painful and traumatic, yet there is no space for a single moment of regret in my being; my path has been difficult, but I would not change a thing.
My path + challenges + progress = possibility
Understanding the vast potential we hold, allows your spirit to open up doorways you may never have known existed.
It is not an easy ride; yet a greater part of you doesn’t want it to be easy anyway…. everything is happening FOR you, not to you.
We each have a voice within; listening to it or dismissing it is a choice. Everyone experiences their soul or their higher self uniquely.
You may have a feeling, while I experience a deep knowing. You may hear a voice from outside yourself, while I see in visuals.
Perhaps you are inspired to take a different road home from work only to find out later that you avoided a terrible car accident. Maybe you have an awareness that your job is affecting your health.
For many, it can arrive in thought, like having an inspired idea to start eating better or to take that risk you’ve been thinking about, or begin writing that story the world needs you to share.
Although at times we can mistake our spiritual nudges for thoughts, there is a difference. The more you learn about yourself, and how to connect to the spirit within, the easier it will become to decipher what can often feel like code. I have come to understand the voice and messages from my own spirit as a nudge; not a push or form of control.
Spirit does not manipulate us into a way or pathway, spirit simply creates the invitation for us to listen if we choose to follow the guidance provided.
Receiving and experiencing guidance is unique to every individual. We will examine four main areas that are most common to our human design.
- Clairaudience: This clair is based on the auditory way of connecting. Think of anything audio, such as a radio voice, your own internal dialogue, and sound. There are unlimited avenues to experience clairaudience.
- Clairsentience: This clair is sensing temperature, gut feelings, and physical reactions. You probably have heard people say it feels like their skin is crawling, or that they have butterflies in their stomach, both clairsentient statements. Of all the clairs, I believe clairsentience to be one of the most common gifts. Interestingly enough, it can also be the most difficult to understand.
- Claircognizance: Knowing information, tapping into accurate insight without knowing where it came from or how you received it is claircognizance.
- Clairvoyance: Clairvoyance is vision and sight, seeing internally within the mind’s eye as well as externally. Clairvoyance is understanding that your vision goes beyond the use of your physical eyes. Seeing outside of yourself through your eyes is only one aspect of clairvoyance.
Deciphering between the constant chatter of the mind and the wisdom of the spirit can be daunting and confusing.
Especially if it is new for you to connect with this aspect of yourself. When you are aware of behaviors and reactions, you become more in touch with the subtle differences between the ego/mind and the spirit. It is crucial that we are gentle with ourselves in this process.
Just like anything else, learning how to get in touch with your spirit involves practice.
You wouldn’t go to the gym one time and expect to have perfectly toned muscles. Practice discipline and patience with yourself as you open up an expand your intuitive development.
