Embrace your inner woo woo!
I have struggled writing a blog since the New Year. I have started a few but can't seem to finish them. I went to an amazing session on manifestation run by Keri Jarvis "Do It Like A Mother". Keri and the other amazing ladies at the session opened up my eyes to where some of my deep blocks are and why I am having difficulty moving forward. I am a people pleaser and I have found myself worrying about what people think of me and what I am doing now with my holistic health business. My love of holistic health is not new, but card readings are something that I have kept private for many years. It is such a beautiful way of receiving messages from the Divine and now is the time to be more open about it. So after a lot of thought I knew that this blog needed to be the first one I write for 2018.
Noun. woo woo (countable and uncountable) A person readily accepting supernatural, paranormal, occult, or pseudoscientific phenomena, or emotion-based beliefs and explanations. Thanks Wiktionary for the definition.
Hmmm woo woo, yes I hold my hands up, as I am full of it. Actually we all are! We all have the gift of intuition, some of us are just more open than others or don't actually realise this sensitivity. I am sure you have heard this saying "I have this gut feeling'. This is your intuitive energy giving you heads up about something that feels right or wrong or when you meet someone for the first time and you don't like their vibes, but you are not sure why, keep reading on.
I think before I go into how I use my intuition, it would probably help for me to explain the different Clair senses and lets see if you can connect to any of these.
Clairvoyance "clear seeing"
Most people have heard this term before. This is when visions past, present and future flash through your mind's eye/third eye, much like a daydream. You may be able to see images, colours, numbers or people.
Claircognizance "clear knowing"
We have knowledge of people or events that we would not normally have knowledge about. Spirit impresses us with truths that simply pop into our minds from out of nowhere. An example of this would be a premonition: a forewarning of something that will happen in the future. Claircognizance requires tremendous faith because there's often no practical explanation for why we suddenly "know" something.
Clairaudience "clear hearing"
This is when we hear words and sounds in our own mind's voice. Some of us best retain and comprehend information when we hear it spoken aloud.
Clairsentience "clear feeling"
Feeling a person's or spirit's emotions or feeling another's physical pain. Many of us are clairsentient without consciously being aware of it. When we get a strong "gut" feeling, positive or negative, about someone we just met or when we get the "chills" for no apparent reason, we may be tuning into the emotional energy of a person or a spirit around us.
Clairalience "clear smelling"
Smelling odors that don't have any kind of physical source. Instances of this could include smelling the perfume or the cigarette smoke of a deceased relative, used as a sign of their presence around us. When our sense of smell is strong and distinct, we may find that certain smells connect us to past memories.
Clairgustance "clear tasting"
The ability to taste something that isn't actually there. This experience can come out of the blue when a deceased loved one is attempting to communicate a memory or association we have with a particular food or beverage that reminds us of them. Source: R. Rosen
One way that I use to connect to spirit was through automatic writing, it was an amazing method of receiving messages that I would write with their energy. This was a very helpful method to develop my clairvoyance/claircognizance, but gradually I didn't need to do this anymore and I could hear spirit directly using clairaudiance.
In my thirties the Divine had other plans for me and introduced me to the Angelic Kingdom. Geeky me one Friday night I felt compelled to do some dietetic research on food cravings. While I was doing this I came across an author called Doreen Virtue. I had never heard of her and I was interested in her research on food cravings. I looked up her website, as I wanted to know more on the topic. Well I got the shock of my life, Doreen Virtue was better known for her connection with angels. I was so surprised and curious as to why I was guided to her. I thought I didn't have time for this so I put it to one side. Well, the Divine was not going to let me off that easily and everywhere I turned were examples of angels or feathers. I was completely ignoring my "gut" feeling and got the worse tummy ache. I thought ok ok ok, I will look at Doreen's website again and the first thing that I saw was her book Angels 101, my tummy ache instantly went away. I bought this book and it has changed my life. I was meant to connect with angels and their divine love.
It has been an amazing journey getting to know my guardian angels and now connecting with them to give angel oracle card readings. I started card readings a few years back, but as time went on I felt guided to start reading angel cards to clients. Connecting with angels is incredible, as they give you this unconditional love and connection to source that is uplifting and motivating. I bring this connection with angels to my reiki and crystal healing. I use the different Clair's to listen, see, feel and knowing how I can help.
Occasionally spirits of departed loved ones come to me to pass on messages, this is also wonderful. Connecting with departed loved ones is a beautiful thing, but when you pass you still have your ego, so the messages are not always without their energy of intention. The messages you receive from the Divine are always created from love and for your highest and best.
Whatever Clair senses you have connected with, they can help you in so many ways. Think of them as emails from the universe. Instead of ignoring and deleting them, open them up and listen, feel etc the message. We get these emails constantly throughout the day, unfortunately we can be too busy and closed off to pay attention. I have lots of moments of doubts, but the more I opened myself up and let go of my ego, the more easily messages from the divine can be received. Don't fear the woo woo. Your sensitivities to the claire senses will only get stronger when you can let go. These messages are to help and guide us, instead of ignoring them, embrace your inner woo woo and and see how the flow of your life can change.
