"Intuition" - March 25, 2011

The dictionary definition of intuition: “Immediate apprehension or cognition”…in other words, one just knows. It happens to almost everybody some time or other… “the power or faculty of attaining direct knowledge or cognition without evident rational thought and inference.”

Whether here in my office in Santa Fe, New Mexico, or anywhere else in the world via telephone, people ask the same questions about their own psychic experiences. Here are a couple of common questions people ask about their intuition:

“How do I make my intuition work at will? I can’t make it happen when I want to.

You can get an intuitive answer to a question from your own self, but it depends on what question you ask, and how. For instance, “When am I going to get married?” likely gets no response from your intuition, but getting quiet, breathing in a nice, easy rhythm, and asking your inner self to give you guidance about love and intimate relationships, will get a response. Count whatever response you get as an answer. If no ideas or pictures ever come, it’s telling you first, communication is blocked and you need to establish a closer relationship with your intuition and inner guidance.You can try these two guided imagery exercise–they’re designed to help you access intuition and spiritual guidance.

“How do I know it’s not my imagination?”

Your imagination is not always in your best interest, but your intuition is, although sometimes it’s not clear at first why your intuition led you where it did. We are complicated creatures. Your imagination is what you use to be receptive to your intuition: it responds to guided imagery and any process where you suspend judgment, enter your imagination, and let the Universe, your own body, or a spiritual being talk to you. Since the intuition is designed to navigate towards heartfelt desires, you can trust its snap judgments–they are meant to allow you to flow and dance with life. And sometimes skip gracefully away before it’s too late.

Your intuition is able to supply a steady flow on an “as-needed basis”, of appropriate responses, impulses, and understandings. It takes its cue and gathers data to present to you, generated by the shifting intentions of your many-faceted self. On the other hand, you can imagine someone is not talking to you because he/she wants nothing to do with you, when in fact the person had laryngitis for two weeks and was not returning messages. If you have fears that feel like intuitions, test them out by asking your intuition to give you input on your fears. Form a question for your intuition about it, and then ask.

Santa Fe Circle May 15…plus updated guided imagery to try now

I re-posted the guided imagery exercise so you can get your own psychic hits, with music from Little Wolf, a local Native American band that includes Medicine Card creator David Carson. It’s on the blog in the media library and also on my website with the Intuition article. Try it and tell me how it works for you, it only takes 3 minutes.

There will be a circle May 15th, here’s a description:

“Santa Fe Spirit Circles take place at my Eastside home near the plaza. Working with six to eight people interested in spiritual healing, clairvoyant reading and intuition development, everyone has a chance to receive healing and psychic messages, have their personal questions answered and practice working with their own intuition. Expect a magical and educational two hour experience!
Circles begin with intention-setting and a prayer. I use sage and sweetgrass to “smudge” each person in a purifying gesture to release the past and the every day world; this prepares you to receive new insights and awareness. I act as a medium for the healing and messages each person attracts from spirit, and often people in the circle get messages for themselves and others. We do group divination with the Speaking Stones and the tarot, plus guided imagery and other processes that get you in touch with your own intuition.

$45, about 2 hours, parking in the back at 514 E. Palace Avenue. For reservations call Elissa at 505-982-3294, or email at elissaheyman@earthlink.net
Out of town circles: $65, 2 1/2 hours.

Next scheduled Santa Fe Circle: Friday, May 15th, 2009 7 pm

Starry Connections by contributor Catherine Adams

Here’s a new article for a new category, Guest Contributors. Catherine Adams is a long-time California clairvoyant and healer, broaching a subject in her own newsletter that’s getting more attention lately. Her website is www.litespirit.com

Starry Connections

Hello to each of you! When I am not working I am up at the ranch where I keep my horse. Although we need more rain, I am glad to see the rains lessen so I don’t have to wade through mud to get to my horse in the pasture. One of the most wonderful things about being there is the feeling of being in nature. There are several kinds of hawks, a few eagles, turkeys, bobcats, many kinds of smaller birds, among other things. They live their active lives in the midst of us humans and I notice just being among them brings peace to my heart.

I have been wanting to send out a newsletter to you for some time, but the subject was not finalized. The subject just came a few days ago. I want to address our part in a larger intergalactic community. Just as being among the animals at the ranch reminds me that we humans are not alone with our busy agendas, we on Earth are also not alone in space. There is an active community in this galaxy and beyond.

There IS life out there beyond earth, and many people wonder why it is not more evident. Many people have seen extra terrestrial crafts or had experiences with extra terrestrial beings yet there is a lot of misunderstanding and lack of knowledge about our brethren among the stars.

I thought in the past that to have a visitation, you had to physically see an extraterrestrial. What I was not aware of is that many visitations occur telepathically or during out -of-body experiences. I have had several and once I began to realize that, I understood how much of my spiritual guidance has been due to these contacts.

Intergalactically as on Earth, there are higher and lower expressions of life. The highest beings out there are very powerful, but use their power toward peace. I see many people in my clairvoyant practice that one might call star people. Who are they (you?) and why are they here? I have backed away from separating star people from people in general because explaining the topic is difficult and it does not seem to help the overall situation to separate out a group of people. This can lead to some feeling superior to others when really this is not the case. In my experience, the highest beings are the most humble. I suspect all of us are from somewhere else here for one agenda or another. In the end, we are all from Source.

My guidance began talking about the Ascension to me in the late 1990’s. I realized then that we are rising in frequency on Earth and entering higher “dimensions”. Dimensions in this sense are frequencies that can be so separate that beings existing in two different frequencies can be unseen to each other. Those who have left their bodies and exist in spirit provide an example of this. Those who have a higher frequency in their being affect the frequency on Earth. You are not left here alone without communication and guidance from your brethren.

One of my most memorable experiences of communication from extra terrestrial beings was the summer of 1989. I had visions every night shortly before I fell asleep and then many nights had amazing dreams. During the day I felt a feeling of being on an exhilarating wave of energy. Among the things these beings communicated to me was the love for humanity that was felt. It was overwhelming. They also told about of the capability of moving faster than the speed of light. Being with a man who was an engineer at the time, I thought “it is impossible to go faster than the speed of light”. But there it was, they not only told me that, but showed me visions of physics that were beyond my human comprehension at the time. They also said that the human body is capable of much more than we now know. They said that we are able to manifest things in the physical instantly, and are able to heal ourselves with vibration. However they said that will not be possible until we realize the full potential of the 5th or throat chakra. They showed me that is where the etheric body is located. The etheric body is the energetic template that your physical body is built from. I saw health problems being “vibrated” away and woke up being thoroughly convinced I could do this for myself.

I had purchased a crystal from a woman about 8 years after these visions. I purchased it because I had a dream about it that I should have it. It is a beautiful piece of lepidolite, which has mica and pink tourmoline in it. I have not seen another big piece like it since. It is lavender in color with bits of this glassy rose tourmoline here and there. It feels like a “fairy godmother rock” to me. I had a vision that the Antarians handed it to me with their long, slender, white fingers. They did not actually hand it to me, but influenced me to get it.

Many of you have probably had visitations similar to the one I describe above, or have been influenced in different ways by these beings in your lives.

Living on Earth can be harsh and defeating at times, but here is a hopeful thought. You can help raise the frequency of Earth and humanity by your thoughts and actions. Although you may see selfishness and thoughtlessness all around you, your noble thoughts and focus on better things is not lost. There are many higher-dimensional beings on Earth now and your efforts are not alone.

I saw a vision once of whales sending their songs to the heavens, which are heard by beings in other dimensions and places. They sing of the moment to moment condition of Earth. Just like the whales, your thoughts and presence on earth radiates beyond the planet but also heal Earth’s heart.

I welcome your emails with comments and questions.

Peace to you

~ Catherine

Your Psychic Blog

Dear Readers,

I know that my friends and clients have astonishing experiences in communicating with the world about, seen and unseen, because they usually choose me to tell, and the conversation begins with, “You’re probably going to think I’m crazy, but…” and their real life experience goes on to reveal that the world apparently works differently than we’ve been taught, and that communication takes place in myriad ways.

I like to read about peoples’ real but inexplicable experiences, I hope you take the time to post them here, and any comments that you have about my psychic blog.

Best wishes, Elissa
