Inner Sight

Spiritual-Eye-Life-is-but-a-dream

The third eye or the divine eye as it is sometimes called, is located in the mid-point between the eyes. Many esoteric and spiritual traditions, among them Mahayana Buddhism and Taoism, have practices devoted to opening and perceiving enlightened wisdom through the third eye.

When the third eye is open and activated it becomes possible to see with psychic vision. The psychic ability of clairvoyance emanates through the third eye. This is the ability to receive energy information through figurative, symbolic and realistic images. An important psychic tool, clairvoyance empowers you to perceive the past, present and future through images and visions.

 Unlike physical eye sight, clairvoyant sight is not always three dimensional and true to physical form. Images may be symbolic, metaphoric, cartoon like, flat or full of color and movement. Clairvoyant sight might also not be highly visual. Images can be intuitively sensed, known and felt. This might not initially seem to make much sense. Through our physical senses the nose smells, the ears hear and the eyes see. Psychic senses are more intertwined and often rely on one another to interpret energy information in a way that we can fully understand.
Be careful not to ignore and pass over clairvoyant images if they surface in an unexpected way. Many people become frustrated when they do not readily perceive clear visual images when beginning to develop clairvoyance. For some, the expectation is to clairvoyantly see in the same way that the physical eyes see. However, instead of initially seeing an image, some may intuitively know what an images looks like. Others may intuitively feel an image. It is even possible to become aware of an image through inwardly hearing what it looks like.
If you experience these kinds of images, do not dismiss or disregard them. Pay attention to what you receive and allow your psychic senses to converge and flow into one another. As you do this, they begin to work together and to provide accurate and understandable information.

Thinking Intuition

10678682_793459830711439_9158001403309668299_n         In my work as a professional intuitive I have discovered that intuition surfaces in four primary ways, through our emotions, our spirit, and the physical body and through the mind. I call these different intuitive modalities your intuitive type. You are most likely a combination of two or more primary types. (In my book, Discover Your Psychic Type there is a quiz that will help you to decipher your intuitive strengths and weaknesses)

Although thinking and intuition may seem to be at opposite ends of one another, they can be quite compatible. A mental intuitive absorbs energy information through their thoughts, instantaneous knowing, quick insights and ahh moments. Often naturally telepathic, they are able to tune into the thoughts of another or a group and can intuit future trends and solutions to common problems

Because their intuition surfaces through ideas, understanding systems and insight, they can often be found in such fields as science, medicine, technology and cutting edge research, innovation and invention.  Quite often mental intuitives do not recognize their intuitive insight as anything other than their own thinking. They love to intuit, but they do not always recognize their own often insightful and usually exacting intuitive ability. I love it that Steven Jobs, clearly a mental intuitive, claimed his intuition as a strong and valuable asset.

Of intuition he said: “Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drowned your own inner voice. And most important have the courage to follow your heart and intuition they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

If you are a mental intuitive, recognizing and encouraging your natural intuition will empower you to make the best use of it. The mental intuitive’s biggest challenge may be to differentiate between the constant mental chatter of the thinking brain and the insightful flow of unbiased clear intuition. Begin the process by making the assumption that you are intuitive. The simple intent of acceptance will save you much time and effort, over-thinking and guessing as to whether or not you are intuitive. Mental intuitives have the tendency to get bogged down in inner arguments and intense focus.  Attempting to figure out and logically discern intuitive thoughts just doesn’t work.  Instead, a relaxed, lucid, even day-dreamy imaginative thought flow, is the optimum state to achieve. Find something that soothes the brain. Listening to music, exercising, especially running and swimming, driving through the countryside, doing mundane physical tasks, such as mowing the lawn, folding the laundry, creative activity such as painting or gardening, anything that gives your mind something to focus on without over-thinking, helps. While your brain is busy, your intuition will take this as an opportunity to sneak into your consciousness. You may have had this experience. We often call it an ahha moment when out of seemingly nowhere we receive an answer or understanding that has previously eluded us. 

The obvious activity that many people “think” should work and be helpful is meditation. While meditation has many benefits and certainly the ability to tune into your intuition is one of them, all too often, people expect too much and put pressure on themselves to quickly achieve a calm and clear mind. Unfortunately instead of peace this only promotes frustration and stress, not exactly what you were aiming for.  If you regularly meditate or you find that you can easily achieve a quiet receptive state by all means jump in, if not, know that there are other ways to tune within and receive intuitive information.

The next step is to be become aware of the difference between your intuition and your thinking mind. Unlike the chattering of endless thoughts, intuitive knowing is awareness that emerges as a cohesive whole. It is not a step by step logical process. You simply know. This knowing may be accompanied by a slight or sometimes pronounced, buzz of energy or tingling sensation. With your intuition there will be a moment, when you simply know that a thought or insight is true and authentic. I give readings most days of the week for people all over the world and I have been doing this for many years. Yet, almost every day I receive information that surprises me. This is another common indicator that you are receiving intuitive information. You will be surprised and even a bit jolted by a new insight. The thinking mind can only tell you what it knows. It will feed you information based on your beliefs, past experiences, judgments, biases and education. Your intuition could care less if you believe or trust what it broadcasts your way.  Even if you reject an intuitive knowing as impractical nonsense, it will return and persist.

This brings us to the next step. The art of developing a receptive and open mind and learning how to simply listen without letting the thinking brain take over. When you feel you are receiving intuitive information or are not sure but suspect it is possible, stop and listen.  This of course, is not so easy for the mental intuitive. The mental intuitive’s brain at work might look like a house overly decorated with streaming flashing lights at Christmas. You know the ones where people come from miles around to view and marvel at the time, expense and sanity of those who devote their lives to creating the visual wonder. Instead of lighting up all of your circuits, pull back, take a deep breath, and listen.  Train your brain to accomplish this and you will soon be amazed at your intuitive capabilities. Think of yourself as a reporter covering a story. Your job is to listen and if possible write down what you receive. That is it. Do not try to figure it out, understand the why, when, how and who. Just accept what you receive in its entirety. You can at a later time let loose the thinking brain and let it mull over what it is that you have intuited.

Okay, mental intuitive, you are well armed (or at least beginning steps armed).  Boldly intuit the stuff that we need figured out. You are our tough minded, solution seeking, discoverers, writers, liberators, cutting edge inventors and creators. The world needs you just about now.

Intuiting Solo

??????????????????????????????? Have you had moments of crystal clear intuitive awareness? Do you sometimes feel that there is an inner presence that is leading and guiding you and acting in your best interest? Have you ever felt a shiver of excitement move through you when a spontaneous intuitive insight is proven true and correct? These are a just a few of the natural intuitive occurrences that motivate many to further develop their intuitive awareness.
One of the great gifts of intuition is that it enables us to feel closer to others. When you feel what another feels, tune into another’s thoughts or experience their aches and pains in your body, you become aware of your innate connection to others. In a similar way feeling the presence of a loved one on the other side or experiencing the intervention of an angel or spirit guide, assures you that there is life beyond the physical and it is loving wise and comforting.
The paradox of developing intuition is that although it provides us with a unique connection to others, we often develop it in isolation. If you are not fortunate enough to have supportive and interested family and friends or live in an area where you have access to intuitive development classes and group psi activities you likely are developing your intuition on your own. Although intuitive awareness opens new doors of possibilities and connection to all of life, it is initially a process of looking deeper within self. I write books about intuitive and medium development to give others the tools that I have learned and to help bridge the gap of loneliness that can accompany intuitive development. Still even though books serve an important role, practicing, developing and interpreting intuitive insights requires direct experience. Having another or a group to discuss and practice with is helpful. Yet, there can be hidden benefits to developing intuition, psychic and medium abilities on your own.
Spiritual Calling
Without the benefit of a class and teacher to lead you through intuitive exercises and help you to interpret what you receive, you may feel alone in a sea of chaotic intuitive phenomenon. But, you are not as alone as you may believe. You are being guided and supported by loving and wise spiritual guides and angels. When spirit comes knocking on your door with intuitive gifts, know that you are being called into a closer connection with the spirit realm.
Here are some suggestions for solo intuitive development.
• Trust yourself and release your fear of the unknown. The unseen is safe, reliable and is inherently positive and life-giving. Trust that you can communicate and receive its direction and blessing. The universe will respond to your intent to develop your intuition. Notice the magic all around you. The intangible is not as elusive as what it may seem. It will guide you, respond and support your efforts. There are many ways that the unseen communicates with you. Trust it when it does.
• Ask your angels and spirit guides for signs and synchroncities that will confirm when you are on the right track. Then trust what happens. The spirit realm communicates in unlimited ways.
For instance: Has a bird ever seemed to perch on your window sill soon after questioning an intuitive insight and it seemed to be more than a coincidence? Have you ever found coins or feathers, noticed repeating numbers or heard a meaningful verse of a song that seemed to give you a message. These and other similar synchronicities are common signs that you are in the flow of a greater knowing and awareness.
• Take time every day to listen. Relish the quiet and practice sitting silently in meditation. Take time to be in nature, live in the now and listen to the quiet inner voice.
• Find creative ways in your everyday life to take advantage of simple intuitive opportunities. For example: hold mail in your hands or intuitively focus on an email before you open it. Pay attention to any thoughts, emotions, words, numbers or awareness and knowing that surface.
• Notice the energy glow around others or surrounding events. Pay attention to whom or what feels energetically stronger or more compelling. In time you will find that those that seem to glow are often lucky, win, and have good health and generally experience events and situations that work to their benefit.
• Write down your dreams. Even if it seems that they are silly and make no sense, in time patterns and intuitive insights will emerge from them.
• Look at the circumstances of your life symbolically. Use your intuition to see the deeper message within the events, people, circumstances, relationships and conditions of your life. Approach all that you experience as an interactive dialogue between yourself and the universe. What is life attempting to teach you? Where are you experiencing discomfort, frustration or lack? Notice how changes in your thoughts, emotions and actions affect your outer and external experiences. Listen within for insight into the meaning and significance behind your day-to-day experiences.
Developing your intuitive abilities on your own can accelerate your spiritual-intuitive growth and strengthen your connection with the unseen. If you feel you have no support or that your friends and family do not understand your interest in psychic and intuitive awareness, know that you are strong enough to go it alone. There is an invisible presence that assists and guides you. As the Buddha said, Be a light unto yourself.

The Most Common Question about Psychic Types

  1.    I am thankful that you are so willing to receive emails. I just purchased your book
    Discover Your Psychic Type, and I took the test to see how I scored. I
    scored 45 on emotional, 45 on mental, 45 on physical and 35 on spiritual.
    I wanted to know how this is possible to be all of these things. Is there
    not something that I am strongest in? I read the sections on each of the
    three and I seem to fit all of them… do you know what would allow me to
    be all of these?

Thank you so very much for your time.

Intuition is not “one size fits all”. It is as
unique as you are. My book, Discover Your Psychic Type, will
help you to understand the way your intuition naturally surfaces. There are
four different modalities through which your intuition will surface. The four
basic types are emotional, mental physical and spiritual. By taking the quiz in
the book you will become better aware of how you innately intuit and how to
further develop your natural intuitive tendencies. Just as we all have
strengths and weaknesses in the way that we learn and retain information, we
all have innate strengths and weaknesses in the way that we intuit. I can
absorb and quickly comprehend visually, yet, I easily drift off into la la land
when listening to lectures or any other kind of auditory learning. When it
comes to my intuition I naturally absorb energy information through my emotions
and my energy field. As far back into my childhood as I can remember, I knew
how others felt and I reacted to the unspoken emotions of others without being
aware that I was doing this. You too, in subtle and sometimes startling ways,
absorb intuitive information through your emotions, your thoughts, your
physical body or your energy field.

To quickly sum up the types, an emotional intuitive
naturally absorbs energy information through emotions. They are natural
empaths. Despite time and distance, they can intuit the emotions and feelings
of others, especially those they are closest to. Mental intuitives are
naturally telepathic in that they can effortlessly tune into others,
individuals or groups, thoughts and ideas. Physical intuitives absorb intuitive
energy into the body. They feel their intuition in their gut. Prone to
unconsciously taking in other’s energy, they often feel unexplained, aches and
pains, especially headaches, stomach aches and chronic tiredness. Spiritual
intuitives respond to intuitive energy through the energy field or aura. This
is the invisible electromagnetic field which surrounds all living creatures.
They likely will dream of others or future events and they may be able to
“see” or tune into angels, ghosts or loved ones on the other side.

While each intuitive type has certain typical ways of tuning
into energy information, your intuitive type also describes the way that you
connect with yourself, others, the unseen realm and the divine. For instance,
emotional intuitives are soulfully attuned to divine love and long to help and
heal others. While mental intuitives are idea and big picture people, who
understand patterns, systems and have a drive to make sense of this crazy
world. A physical intuitive is connected to the natural world and often a
champion for protecting mother earth and all of her creatures. The spiritual
intuitive lives in two worlds, the
ethereal and the physical and is often a messenger for the beyond. You
are a combination of all of these types.

The most common question that I am asked about intuitive
types is “I feel like I am intuit in more than one way” or “I
took the quiz in  your book and my scores
for each type are close to one another, which type am I”?

We have a tendency to think in absolutes. “I am
this” or “I am that”. When it comes to your intuitive type you
are, in varying degrees, a combination of all four types. Your intuition does
not operate in black and white. Most likely, you will have one type that is
your primary method of intuiting, but you will also intuit through all four
types. The optimum is to be balanced and to able to consciously utilize all
four modalities of intuiting.

The key is to be conscious of how and when you are
intuiting. Intuition becomes problematic only when we are unaware of its
presence and power. For instance, an emotional intuitive is prone to feeling
and responding to others emotions without knowing that they are doing so. They
may wake in the night feeling the fear or stress of a loved one who is miles
away. Not sure of the origin of these feelings can be disconcerting and
confusing. A physical intuitive might unknowingly take on another’s headache or
get an upset stomach when a loved one is in distress. Quite often when I do
medical intuitive work, my body feels the aches and pains of the person I am
working with. A spiritual intuitive might dream of others or worldly events and
wake perplexed and unsure of why they had the dream and what to do with the
information they received. The mental intuitive who is unaware of their
intuitive modality is prone to absorbing the thoughts and ideas of others and
becoming overwhelmed with mental chatter and ADD like tendencies.

There are strengths and weakness in all four types. When you
are conscious of the way you are receiving intuitive information you can steer
clear of obstacles and sail freely into the vast sea of psychic possibilities.
Happy Intuiting!
