Trusting the Voice Within

Learning to trust myself was a major process, fraught with ups and downs and doubts and fear.

I had never trusted myself and most of my life was spent trying to force myself to believe that everything was okay. When I couldn’t make a decision, I just stayed where I was: I was afraid I would make the wrong one.

Even after my intuition reawakened, I doubted myself. I could see the paths and decisions that would help others, but I could rarely see what would best support me.

I was living outside of my body, I was overwhelmed and confused, and I stayed small so that I wouldn’t have to make decisions that might create a sense of failure or pain in me. And as a result of this, I was allowing others to have dominion over my mood, my actions and my sense of self-worth. It was easier to let life lead me than it was to actively co-create my reality.

Everything had always taught me to not trust what I was feeling and to override what my body was telling me. I played soccer on sprained ankles and I cartwheeled on hurt wrists; crying was a sign of weakness and anger was to be suppressed. I could sense the emotions that everyone else was feeling ~ anger, sadness, anxiety ~ but I would always hear that they were “fine” or “good.” Hide, hide, hide who you truly are was the message all around me…And it confused me and taught me that what I was feeling must have been wrong…

I know this to be true about a lot of people that I work with as well…the inability to trust ourselves and our intuition is a product of years of denying the reality of our situation, feelings, life in general…

And it can be hard to come back from this…It can feel unstable and uncertain. It can be really difficult to move through the conditioning and doubt.

Learning to go back within…to access the wisdom of my body and my higher self changed everything for me. I’m able to intuitively handle situations that used to be stressful and overwhelming for me. I can make decisions that feel aligned and good to me. I TRUST that I’m taking care of my needs and I feel safer as a result.

And my psychic abilities soared as I began to trust my inner wisdom; it’s like having an internal system of checks and balances and so as I receive information from my upper chakras (Third Eye and Crown), I feel the insights land in my body more strongly and I’m able to better navigate the subtleties of what I’m perceiving.

A huge part of my healing journey was this key aspect of finally trusting myself. I still had to navigate trauma and stress and chronic symptoms, but the more connected I became to my inner voice, the more substantiated and grounded I became in the rest. I learned how to BE fully in my body and to listen to its rhythms, likes and desires. I also began to acknowledge, feel and respect its no’s…

My inner voice always guides me with heart and the interest of my best and highest good…And accessing and trusting that is a pure treasure that never leads me astray.

A Day in the Life of an Intuitive Family

Morning Talk

Scott and Janet settle into their usual chairs on the porch. It’s a beautiful Georgia morning after a heavy rain.

Scott:

What was the name of that archangel we were talking to?

(He takes a sip of coffee and scratches his head.)

Janet:

(Not missing a beat)

Orion.

Scott:

Oh yeah. He’s cool. I liked him; he turned my body into blocks.

Janet:

Yeah, that was pretty awesome.

(The dog barks.)

I think Artemis wants to go out. Let’s take her for a walk after we finish our coffee.

Post Dog Walk

Scott:

I forgot to ask. How’s your back feeling this morning?

Janet:

Really good! That exercise AV: gave us totally helped. Do you want avocado with your breakfast?

Scott:

Yes, please. It still kind of freaks me out that an extraterrestrial that I channel can be so loving and helpful. Will you pass me the honey, honey?

Janet:

(Smiles.)

Why would that freak you out? I think AV: is sweet. I love him.

(Passes him the honey.)

Scott:

I JUST started channeling him! Of course it freaks me out.

(His eyes get really big and Janet rolls hers.)

Janet:

Honey, his message is awesome. Really it doesn’t matter who it comes from, does it?

Scott:

(Sarcastically)

Yeah, right. Tell my mom that.

Lunch Talk

Scott:

I’m giving a channeled reading at 2:00. What does the rest of your day look like?

Janet:

Kinda busy. I have another remote healing and an in-person session. I can do them both at the office though if you want.

Scott:

What about your goddess circle?

Janet:

That’s not until Thursday, honey. You know it’s on the full moon.

(She suddenly lights up.)

Oh! I just remembered!

I have a house clearing at 5:00! Do you want to help?

Scott:

Yes! You know I love ghost busting! Have you tuned in yet?

Janet:

Yep, and…

Scott:

Don’t tell me! Don’t tell me! I want to see what I get once we’re there.

Janet:

Ok, honey.

(Grinds Himalayan salt on the sautéed vegetables she’s preparing and smiles.)

The couple that ghost busts together stays together...

The couple that ghost busts together stays together…

Dinner Preparations

(The boys roll in from school as Janet and Scott try to decide whether to make kale salad or quinoa with organic, non-GMO corn as a side for their wild salmon.)

Scott:

Colton, you look really tired.

Colton:

(Yawns)

I was up all night. Teddy was running up and down the hall.

Janet:

Jake, did you hear him?

Jake:

Truth, my dude. I heard him, but I was able to fall back to sleep.

Janet:

Honey, maybe we should do a quick check-in to see what’s going on.

(Janet and Scott both get quiet, close their eyes and drop in to connect with their guides. The boys look at each other, roll their eyes and walk out.)

(15 seconds pass.)

Janet:

What did you get?

Scott:

Lauryn says not to worry and that it’s normal for an earthbound spirit to get rambunctious at times. You?

Janet:

Dee laughed and said, “What do you expect? He’s only 6.”

I guess we knew what we were getting into when we told him that he could stay. I’ll have a talk with him tonight and let him know that he needs to keep it quiet while we’re sleeping.

Post Dinner

(After the salmon and kale salad are finished, the dishes have been loaded and the discussion on personal empowerment has concluded, the intuitive family prepares to retire for the night. Janet hangs back to have her talk with Teddy.)

A Few Minutes Later

Scott:

How did it go with Teddy?

Janet:

Great. He understands that he needs to be quiet after 10:00.

(They head to bed.)

Janet & Scott:

Good night, Colton.

Good night, Jake.

Everyone:

Good night, Teddy!

(They all hear the faint pitter-patter of footsteps down the hall as Teddy heads towards the living room.)

Superpowers Activate!

For most of my life, I knew I was sensitive.

Throughout those years, I equated sensitivity with weakness, pain, overwhelm, anxiety and confusion. I hated being sensitive, and I did my best to mask it and push it down. I did whatever I could to NOT be sensitive. I wanted to be tough, thick-skinned, able to hang with the boys.

Because of this, I denied my authentic self pretty regularly. In fact, I felt a lot of shame around who I was. I acted like I didn’t care and I put on a strong front, while inside I shrank further and further away from myself.

Feeling all the stuff around me caused me to accept blame that wasn’t mine to take on, it led me to a (very!) poor understanding of boundaries and it caused me to live in fear and confusion and to shut down and numb out.

I didn’t understand people or my environment and I had a poor ability to act in alignment with my integrity. “No” was nearly impossible to say (and even more so after being raped) because I didn’t want to “hurt” the other person and then feel responsible for their pain. I just gave in, kept the peace, all the while holding up the façade that all was well. There was as little boat rocking as possible in my seemingly fragile world.

I had a strong knowing of what all the people around me were feeling and yet they told me that they were fine. “Negative” emotions were deemed inappropriate and yet I could feel them all around me. It didn’t make any sense to me. And so I constantly thought of myself as wrong. I doubted myself, my instincts, and my ability to make sound decisions.

It was just too much. So I shut down.

I turned myself off for about 20 years. And during those two decades, I struggled with addiction, anxiety, insomnia, perfectionism, low self-esteem, overwhelm and more. I was a mess.

When I started doing healing work, shortly after my son was born, my intuitive gifts opened up again. It was like someone had ripped a Band-Aid off of me and all of a sudden, I could feel all the pain again. Every last little nerve ending was exposed. It was nearly crushing and I had no idea how to handle it.

It exacerbated problems with my health (empaths often struggle with candida, auto-immune disorders, IBS and more), it affected my relationships and it caused me to experience extreme exhaustion.

I could only do a little bit of healing work per week because I was taking on the stuff of everyone and then carrying it around with me, a little pack mule of other people’s emotions, illness and pain.

I tried cord cutting, bubbles, sage, crystals and more. They helped, but they didn’t solve the problem. My intuition was continuing to open and I still didn’t have the tools to truly help me do it safely. I was struggling and disempowered on my path.

Until I started to receive very clear messages on how to create a permanent shift in my field…information on how to get back into my body and stay there ~ truly scary stuff for an empath!

But the thing is: Once I got safely back into my body, it actually felt so good to be there that I didn’t want to leave it anymore. I could feel other people’s stuff and not take it on!

I had been given tools that created a permanent and empowering shift for me. My sensitivities had turned into superpowers! And once that happened…Wow! They opened even more.

(Note: If you have experienced trauma or have repressed emotions from childhood, I recommend working with my colleague, Elicia Miller. Core emotional healing and inner child work are essential tools as well.)

Most of my clients come to me overwhelmed and confused; I see this happening on a very large scale right now. And so I am feeling called to share these insights and teachings with others. I passionately feel that if we can understand how to go within and embody ourselves fully and strongly ~ if we can trust ourselves from this place of deep connection ~ then our empathy can become one of our greatest gifts and we can open up our intuition in a way that empowers us to be able to positively affect the lives of others. I’ve experienced it myself and seen it work in others as well.
