is a flash of insight that comes to inform and protect you
when you are about to take a step down an undesirable
path. Intuition is also there to encourage and support you
when you’re headed down a path that leads to your desires.
Everyone has intuition, but not everyone is aware of when
they are having an intuitive flash. Consciously becoming
aware of when you are having an intuitive flash and acting
on it could save you some serious grief and get you to your
desired destination much faster.
of intuition as a guide, someone who is familiar with the
path ahead and can warn you of upcoming pitfalls. Like
a scout, your intuition goes on ahead and reports back to you
with information you can use to make informed decisions. Tuning
in to your intuition can even save your life. Wouldn’t
you like to be on a first name basis with such a creature?
So how do you recognize intuition? Intuition is an energetic
wave that contains information that you must receive. The way
you tune in and receive intuition depends on your personal
dominant psychic modality: clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience,
or claircognizance (or any combination if you are skilled in
multiple modalities). Here are some phrases and their associated
modalities that will help you determine which is YOUR dominant
modality. Have you ever heard yourself say any of the following
I Saw This Coming a Mile Away
with clairvoyance (clear seeing) will often receive intuition
as a visual download. Let’s say your friend
says, “Dude, I’m gonna jump my motorcycle over
those 5 trash cans. Watch.” You get an instant flash
in your mind’s eye showing your friend crashing into
the 4th can and going down in a heap of grinding metal. You
say, “Don’t do it, man. You’re not gonna
make it.” He jumps, he crashes, and you say, “Dude,
I saw that coming a mile away.” With clairvoyance, your
intuition will often play out like a scene in your mind, sometimes
over and over again as it tries to get your attention. If clairvoyance
is your dominant psychic modality, tune in visually when you’re
about to do something major and see if you’re getting
a scene that shows the outcome.
Little Voice Said…
who are predominantly clairaudient (clear hearing) will receive
intuition as a voice in their head. An example
of clairaudient intuition in action would be, “Anna,
that guy you met at the party the other night is in the news.
Turns out he’s a serial rapist! You almost went home
with him. What stopped you?” And your friend says, “I
don’t know. There was just this little voice in the back
of my mind that said ‘Danger’ so I just walked
away from him. I’m so glad I listened!” With clairaudience,
intuition will sound like a voice in your mind, the same voice
you use when you talk to yourself in your head, only the voice
will give you information you probably couldn’t glean
from logic alone. If clairaudience is your dominant psychic
modality, tune in to that voice when you’re about to
make a major decision and see if it has anything to say.
I Just Got This Sinking Feeling
who are predominantly clairsentient (clear feeling) will
receive intuition as a gut feeling, literally in your
stomach area. Has your significant other ever said these words
to you, “Honey, we need to talk” and you get a
sinking feeling in your gut? You can literally feel something
falling inside you and landing with a thud in your root chakra.
Your security is threatened. Your emotions are about to be
stepped on. Your stomach is in knots. Fear wells up inside
you. You are receiving an intuitive flash clairsentiently.
You don’t even know what the other person is going to
say, but you know it’s going to hurt or be quite challenging
to deal with. If clairsentience is your dominant psychic modality
then let your gut guide you. If you’re about to do something
and you get that sinking feeling in your gut, your intuition
is trying to warn you. You might say, “I’ve got
a bad feeling about this…” and that’s clairsentience
too. Your body chemistry will feel altered. Pay attention when
you feel that and think carefully before making your next move.
I Knew It
who are predominantly claircognizant (clear knowing) will
receive intuition as an instant download of information
that needs no processing or interpretation. You’ll hear
them say, “Oh man I knew when you told me you were buying
that stock that it was a bad idea.” “How did you
know?” “I don’t know, I just knew it.” It
comes with great certainty but not a lot of logic. In fact,
claircognizant intuition often flies in the face of logic,
and can be one of the hardest types of intuition to act on.
Can you remember a time when you did something and you instantly
knew it was a mistake even before the actual results were in?
Maybe you heard yourself say, “Shoot, I think I just
made a terrible mistake. Why didn’t I listen to my intuition?” and
then later you find out you definitely made a big mistake.
you become aware of your dominant modality, use it consciously
to access your intuition. If you’re about to take a step
on your path that you’re uncertain about, tune in and
see if you’re getting an intuitive hit on it. If you’re
clairvoyant, allow a scene to unfold in your mind’s eye
showing you the outcome of your decision. If you’re clairaudient,
listen to that little voice in the back of your mind. What
is it saying? If you’re clairsentient, check in with
your gut. Do you have a sinking feeling or do you feel strong
and stable? If you’re claircognizant ask yourself what’s
going to happen and without thinking about it too much just
let the answer come, yes or no, good or bad, etc.
to be aware of when you’re receiving an intuitive
flash is something that needs to be worked on consciously in
order for you to get better at it. To make your intuition stronger,
just keep acting on it and taking note of the outcome. Was
your intuition right or wrong? Did you misinterpret it or get
it right? The more you work with it, the stronger it becomes,
and the more you can rely on it to help you in life.
