How timely, My used to be very intuitive, but lately lost confidence and started questioning EVERYTHING.
Our two year old picked a book at our local shop and would not let it go so we had to buy it, however is was not listed on their system and therefore we got it for free. (nice people)
So this book that Magicaly followed us was all about intuition and was truly a great book. If you can I recommend getting it. It's called Guidance 24/7 by Crystal Nani.
I am not an expert yet but here are just few tips that I am confident about:
Intuitive messages are short and to the point, less that 7 words long. That little voice in your head will be like "cross the road".... "leave your job".... "call your friend now!"
You MUST want to hear the guidance. If you ask for a way to earn a million dollars, but don't believe you will ever have a million dollars, you won't hear the message.
When asking for guidance, do not place conditions on the answer. eg. "please show me how to make my life happier, but don't tell me to leave my boyfriend, I just couldn't handle that" by placing conditions you close of your ability to hear any answers.
Your logical mind or your heart cannot confine your intuition. Inutition does not guide you based upon worldly rules, weighing pros and cons of each situation.
Your spiritual direction will be breif, concise and then quiet.
Your Thoughts however will go round and round to and fro trying to find a conclusive answer.
An example is you may be thinking about calling your friend to see if they are ok but don't want to intrude and your mind is torn between calling, leaving them alone blaa blaa blaaa...
This is just your thoughts and is not guidance.
However, you're cooking dinner, wondering where the salt is hiding this time, then a little voice says "call Lucy now" and you think wow where did THAT come from, you pick- up the phone and call her, she was just heading out the door to go out, while you are talking a car looses control and crashes in Lucy's front porch, right where she would be now if you hadn't called.
Now intuition is only going to saves lives, it will help you in every avenue of your life. (i just made that story up... it may never have happened.) The book however is full ways intuition has helped people.
Please read the book it has step by ways to tune your intuition to suit your needs, it helped me on my own path to a much more spiritual life. Google her too. Cristel Nani
P.S. I don't get a commission from sales of her books, go to the library if you need.
