Dear Intuitive Seeker –
In March I celebrated my 35th year of being in the intuitive reading business. I look back and am amazed that this work has allowed me to write seven books, to travel and speak internationally and to provide intuitive sessions for tens of thousands of clients. I credit my intuition with guiding me through all of the ups and downs in my life.
I think of intuition like our “Inner GPS.” When you set the navigation system in your car or phone you choose a destination. Intuition works the same way! Where do you want to go in life? What does success look like to you? What would make you happy and at peace? Set your intention and your intuition will begin to guide you.
I thought I’d share a few things I’ve learned from my intuitive guidance over the years. They’ve helped me navigate my life. Hopefully they’ll help you, too!
What Me Worry?
Worry is like any bad habit. It can be addictive. One small fear leads to another and another. Before you know it, you’ve imagined your life falling apart, not only now, but ad infinitum into your future. One of the ways to begin breaking any habit is to simply recognize you’re doing it! Oops! “There I caught myself imagining not being able to pay my rent again, getting evicted and being homeless.”
But, simply the recognition that you’re worrying isn’t usually enough to change it. What can you do to switch the channel? Ask yourself the question, “What do I want?” For example, if your worry du jour is imagining yourself broke and penniless, turn it around. What you probably want is to feel safe. You might also want to imagine having enough or more than enough money. Your task at this point is not to figure out how this will happen. It’s simply to begin choosing something you want versus something you don’t.
Just for today: Remind yourself that the Universe wants you to live a happy, healthy and abundant life. Allow yourself to receive all those Divine blessings.
The Intuitive “To Do” List
The root of the word “enthusiasm” is from the Greek word entheos. It means, “God within” or “guidance within.” Just think about that for a moment. When you’re enthusiastic about something you’re receiving Divine guidance!
When you look at your “to do” list, what makes you feel excited, enthusiastic, curious or passionate? You’re being guided to do more of those things.
The opposite is true, too. If you look at that list and feel bored, drained, listless and lacking enthusiasm, something is wrong. What could you change in your life to make this list something that you can’t wait to tackle? Take a look again at the ones that make you feel excited. This will give you a helpful clue.
Just for today: Pay attention to those enthusiasms. Write them down. More importantly, act on them! God told you to!
Do You Wish You Had More Confidence?
You’re not alone! I hear this from so many clients, even the people who seem to be among the most accomplished. It’s such a dream-killer to tell yourself, “I’d love to… (fill-in-the-blank) start a business, move to a new area, go back to school…” but I’m scared. I lack self-confidence.
We secretly wish there was a Confidence Fairy who could sprinkle her magic dust over us. Voila! Confidence! I’ll tell you the real secret. Shh…
It’s to do the thing you’re scared to do.
It’s true. Confidence comes from exercising your courage muscles and doing the thing that frightens you. Former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt knew this when she said, “You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”
Just for today: Take a risk. Do one thing that scares you. It needn’t be a big thing. Make it a small thing. Repeat again tomorrow. Soon, you too, will be feeling confident. Fairy dust anyone?
