I wrote the first draft of this Saturday and the title included “Happy Canada Day” but allergies sidetracked me from getting back to it. Still wanted to say a belated happy happy to my Canadian friends!
I mentioned recently that I’d be doing a post on intuition — I’m realizing that it’s more a meandering on intuition as I am in a process more than at a place of wrapping it up, but this unfolding has been intriguing to me.
If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know I’ve been working on issues related to an ancestral shut-down of my maternal lineage as “seers”. So I tend to think of myself as not having much third eye activity–or at least what most experts around me say is a block to receiving the info.
While I have a notion I will be coming to yet-to-be-determined “extra sensing” ability when the muscles finish, I’ve been realizing lately that some degree of good intuitive “knowing” has been there all along. Beyond that I have no way of knowing what talent or talents the line of seers in my family had since that got shut down long ago so have no idea whether I’ll be leading cops to murders or reading people’s thoughts or “seeing” visions of the future or just expanding the “knowing” I already have…
Since early in the journey I’ve been very good at having a strong sense of which spiritual teachers, books, activities and which alternative healing modalities are right for me and which are not. In the beginning I wasn’t always good at following my avoid instinct and I wound up unhappily working with a practitioner/teacher or two whom I wound up finding creepy or uncomfortable or just not good at their practice.
But over the years I’ve come to trust it and it has served me well as I’ve moved along the healing process in great strides by heading for this practitioner or that teaching when it called to me as the next step. For a long time I’ve said no to any healer or teacher or class if it feels off or wrong. No way to know if I missed something great on the “no’s” but I sure have had some fabulous experiences with amazing therapists and healers whose work has drawn me to say YES.
Lately I’m noticing as things clear and my head opens, if I tune in (a big “if” 🙂 ) my intuition guides me very well on many more things, from which practices to do each day to which errands to run, to types of food I need to eat for a period of time and more. I see intuition and “the sight” as coming from the same place but esp as having a wider or deeper connection to info outside the normal senses. But I’m aware the type of “knowing” I experience is also considered to be one of the forms of ESP, so I find myself wondering if this expanding intuitive ability means the muscles blocking my third eye are finally opening.
Can you tell I’m getting antsy to get to the end of the muscle-healing thing and on to whatever is next? I keep trying to stay in the moment and find the joy, etc. But when it comes to unwinding and not sleeping and headaches, etc. I have to admit my basic feeling re: those things and joy is… not so much.
Anyway, as I note the intuitive ability growing, it’s been interesting to ponder… and wonder what abilities my ancestors had. Maybe a seance??? 🙂
