Following our intuition is such an important aspect to our spiritual journey. There are some opportunities that will ONLY be made available through quiet reflection and mindfulness. It doesn’t have to be a burdensome process either. You can connect and ground yourself with ten intentional deep breaths. Ask the question that you want to know the answer to, take ten deep breaths focusing on your question and when finished, let it go. Wait for a few moments to see if anything downloads into your consciousness, and if nothing stands out, go about your day. Something will stand out to you as either a direct answer to your question, or you will receive some sort of guidance that will lead you in the right direction.
Being a reader, I’m constantly tuned in, I trust my intuition to the exclusion of emotion or even reason. There are times however when I doubt and then waver in following through on a hunch, so I ask for a sign. Some sort of confirmation that I’m headed the right way. I’m always blessed by how the Universe communicates messages to me.
Because of my sensitivity to energies, I’m choosy who and where I expend my own energy. There are some personalities that are just toxic for me personally and professionally. It’s a real block when there is a conflict in personality, it inevitably leads to misunderstandings and disappointments.
So I read my cards before I accept invitations to appear as a guest on someone’s show or blog, I “read the reading” of all potential clients, and before I commit to any partnership for pleasure or business.
Last year, I had the opportunity to be interviewed by the lovely Connie Bowman to talk about the process of chemicalization. When she initially reached out to me, I ran the cards to find out if it was a good pairing and mutually beneficial. The cards were positive, so I agreed. I then asked for a sign if I was doing the right thing. But nothing jumped out immediately, so I just left it alone. And nothing popped out for quite a while. I was starting to wonder if I had read the cards right.
The day of the interview, we get onto Skype and start to work out the audio and video stuff. Connie asks me to just talk so she can fool with the audio. When she bent down, I saw this picture on the wall and just laughed to myself. Here was my sign I had asked for a month ago!
The painting is of The Lady Of The Lake, which Connie had someone paint for her daughter. Because I’m a tarot card reader, the first thing I see is the Queen Of Cups, my personal significator when I read for myself. Seeing this image, this Goddess on the wall, winking at me through the entire interview, I knew I had read my cards just fine.
So trust those intuitive hunches; trust your gut and follow through even if it’s crazy as hell. And ask for confirmation. Despite what you may have heard, it’s ok to ask for help, guidance and validation along your spiritual walk. It’s what your Ancestors and other spiritual guides are here for.
If you’re going through a particularly stressful time and feel out of touch with yourself, it’s a good time to think about having a reading. A reading will help you sort through what’s important, what you should focus on and where you should direct your energies in order to get the most beneficial results. The stress and distraction of other people can make it difficult to know which way to turn. Reach out to me through the social web or TEXT my service (240-242-7354) to inquire about having a reading.
