Yes, we ARE all intuitive. We’re all naturally able to access our right brain hemisphere–the doorway to our intuition, creativity, and divinity. We talk ourselves out of listening to this inner guidance by focusing on our left-brain chatter–our linear-thinking, practical, realistic mind. We see logical thinking touted on the news, at work, and among our family members as “the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.” Yet our left-brain logic is only telling us half of the truth. This supreme logic we live by has gotten us exactly where we are today–afraid, disconnected, unfulfilled, unhappy, and in search of meaning.

Being practical above all else does not get us where we want to go. It doesn’t lead to a happy, fulfilled life. Our left-brain logic talks us out of being who we really are and doing the work we came here to do. And it sometimes talks us out of loving who we came here to love.

Remember, you are NOT your thoughts. You’re an energy being, a pulsing wave of light connected to the energetic fabric that makes up the entire universe. Quantum physicists refer to this phenomenon as the “membrane theory.” When they say that we’re all made of the same energy–waves of light that join everything and everyone–they’re describing intuition! Your consciousness is so much bigger than your mind. Your feelings and intuition connect you to all others beings in our universe. Your intuition is a gateway to all the knowledge, answers, and guidance you’ve ever wanted.

When you’re afraid, you block your intuition. Fear is the opposite of love, and it shuts your portal to the divine. When you’re tapped into fear you’re hooked into low-vibration negative energy–or what I call pitiful thinking. This type of thinking makes your body feel bad; it drains your energy and makes you anxious. It clouds your connection to your higher self.

Intuition and divine guidance speak up in the quiet moments when your fear and mental chatter pause and you simply know what’s true–you know it in your bones. It’s a peaceful knowing brought to you courtesy of your highest self.

Our intuition announces exactly what we need to know exactly when we need to know it to fulfill our mission. Its timing is always perfect. And it uses any means available to reach us. You have the dream when you need the dream. You feel a strong urge to do something exactly when it’s time to do it. You get a visual image of something you need to know while you’re waiting at a stoplight. And you know you’ve met your soul mate the moment you hear his voice.
