Starpeople

“Starpeople have unusual looking eyes, such as an exotic iris color, or uncommonly shaped eyes or eyelids”

Did you discover that you are a STARPERSON from the Earth Angel quiz? According to Doreen Virtue, Starpeople often have distinctive physical characteristics that set them apart. Rarely average height, most male Starpeople are tall and thin, with the female Starpeople being small in stature, with either thin or heavyset bodies. There are exceptions, of course, just generally their bodies, like their lives, are usually out of the norm in both height and weight. Starpeople’s faces can be long and thin, especially if they have tall, slender bodies. Starpeople who are petite have rounder faces. It appears that the planet of origin may influence their specific physical characteristics.

Starpeople have unusually shaped and colored eyes. It’s common for them to have crescent-moon shaped eyes, like an inverted U. Their eyes are often gray, green, or black-brown, and seem to glow from within, as if they have bright lights behind them. They may also have rings of lighter color around their pupils.

Movies and books often portray extraterrestrials as vicious warmongers; yet, to ET’s, Earthlings are the ones who are violent. So violent, in fact, that many ET’s were asked to take on human bodies to try to avert mass destruction. We call these benevolent helpers Starpeople (or, the singular Starperson). They came from physical and nonphysical galaxies and took on Earthly lives to spread kindness on an “as-needed” basis. Their collective niceness helps to defuse the anger, stress, and rage that could lead to nuclear war. If Earth is destroyed, the negative effects will ripple through many galaxies. The Starperson’s assignment, then, is to prevent nuclear war at any cost. The main avenue for this lofty goal is through the expression of kindness and common decency to others – a domino effect of sorts.

On any given day, Starpeople calmly smile as they perform unselfish deeds for those on their path. Those whom they help barely notice them, yet Starpeople don’t perform acts of service in order to gain accolades. Such deeds are an innate necessity to them, as if some sort of inner programming compels them to act. They aren’t concerned that people rarely thank them.

Starpeople are in any place where kindness is needed. They are grocery store checkers, postal clerks, bank tellers, and customer service agents. With their wallflower looks and personalities, Starpeople prefer to stay behind the scenes. Their mission doesn’t call for high visibility; in fact, they hope no one notices them.

Since it would upset most people to receive intervention from ET’s, no matter how benevolent they might be, these mighty and gentle beings elected to take human form and walk among us. On the inside, they’re the same as anyone else; beautiful sparks of Divine light made from the same Creator. Yet, because they’ve spent their lifetimes in non-Earthly locales, Starpeople may seem odd in behavior or looks.

Socially awkward due to their inexperience with Earth life, Starpeople may feel rejected by others. Many of the Starpeople interviewed for Doreen’s book reported a history of being viciously teased in childhood, and sometimes in adulthood as well. These experiences make them homesick for a planet where they fit in and know the rules of social engagement. Starpeople don’t like to call attention to themselves and dress for comfort and practicality, instead of for fashion or show. Female Starpeople wear a minimum of makeup and don’t like to fuss with their hair.

Starpeople have paradoxical personalities; on one hand, they’re eager to assist people without being asked, yet they also seem guarded and distant and may be perceived as being ‘cold’. They’re here to be helpful, without needing to get deeply involved in the process of feelings and emotions, which are foreign to them. Completions of tasks are more important to them than relationship development.

Starpeople love technology, and they’re usually the first to own, or even invent, the latest devices. They collect state-of-the-art mobile and telephone units, along with other technological gadgets. Part of their collective soul purpose is to further technological ingenuity, for the advancement of science and humankind.

Many Starpeople wonder what their life’s purpose is and are relieved to find out that it involves being helpful on an ongoing and nonspecific basis – in other words, to help in whatever way is necessary. There is no one specific job or task that they need to perform during their lifetimes as long as they’re doing their best to transform human frowns into smiles.

It comes as no surprise that many Starpeople have interests in UFO’s, space travel, life on other planets, and ET’s. They also love the Star Trek television series, old and new. They seem to relate to K-Pax and Man Facing Southeast, two films about Starpeople in human bodies who were diagnosed as delusional because they spoke the truth about their non-earthly origins and were put in mental institutions.

As children, Starpeople find that they have an intuitive understanding of spirituality. Many of them abstain from traditional religion because it seems too restrictive compared to their understanding of the vastness of Spirit. One Starperson says, “I always thought of God as a Universal Intelligence that is way bigger than what conventional churches made claim to.” This wisdom was most likely gained from many lifetimes of high-level awareness and experience.

All of the Earth Angel realms report extreme sensitivity to energy from crowds, people, and places. The Starpeople realm, however, is the most apt to study energy healing and make a career of it. It’s actually amazing how many make a living using their hands, whether through energy work or through tactile occupations such as landscaping, construction, massage, or manicurist. Reiki seems to be the number one choice for energy healing work among Starpeople, which may be because Reiki energy originated from the Pleiades as a gift to Earth beings. It’s interesting that Reiki energy clairvoyantly looks like thin bands of rainbow stripes, and this is also how the auras of Starpeople apperar (which are visible on aura photos). They look like poles sticking vertically out of the Starperson’s body, like hairs standing on end.

Starpeople are very attracted to symbols, codes, hieroglyphics, and sacred geometry, so it makes sense that they would adopt Reiki, since this healing method involves coded symbols that vibrate with different healing energies. Toward the end of Doreen Virtue’s Angel Therapy Practitioner courses, she has her students gather into groups corresponding to their respective Earth Angel realms. During one of her courses, every single person from the Starpeople realm was also a Reiki Master!

Starpeople may be born to non-Starpeople parents. These parents might not even be from any realm of the Earth Angels. As a result, the family isn’t able to relate to a Starperson child, and the child ends up feeling disconnected from the birth family. Since most planets don’t have the birth and family systems of Earth life, the emotional bonding that occurs in families here on Earth is alien to them. This is one reason why Starpeople may be perceived as friendly but distant. They’re helpful, yet there’s a certain degree of underlying coldness that’s evident if someone attempts to create a close bond. You just never feel like you completely connect with a Starperson. And it’s no wonder since Starpeople are task-oriented, not people-oriented.

Starpeople are extra-sensitive to violence, and even though all the Earth Angel realms have an aversion to it, Starpeople seem to be the most repulsed by fighting in any form. Most Starpeople that Doreen interviewed for her book said they don’t watch, listen to, or read the news because it upsets them too much. The Starpeople see an eventual end to violence; if peace-loving men and women will take a stance in the form of prayer or guided action. In the meantime, they stay faithfully at their Earthly posts, being nice people in everyday situations. Deep down, though, they are homesick for the peaceful life they once knew in a faraway place.

Starpeople who have learned how to handle Earth life say that it helps to connect with other in their realm. They’re not difficult to spot if you look for their telltale physical characteristics. Or, you can be sure to find them near the ocean. Every single Starperson who was surveyed said that living near water, especially the ocean, was a must. And, of course, Starpeople tend to frequent UFO conventions and science-fiction study groups.

Starpeople are multitaskers and may not settle on one set career as their life’s mission. They may instead dabble in several career choices, either consecutively or simultaneously. As mentioned earlier, they make wonderful Reiki Masters. They also do well as energy healers, massage therapists, chiropractors, and physical therapists. They also enjoy research, engineering, technology, and support-staff work. However, the Starpeople must believe in the goals of the company they work for or they’ll be miserable in their jobs. Starpeople are kind, hardworking, and efficient, yet often perceived as being aloof or cold. They also prefer to be behind the scenes, instead of being a spokesperson or a front-office employee.

Guidance and suggestions if you are a Starperson:

  • Know that small acts of kindness do count. As a Starperson, you probably worry about Earth’s future or whether you’re doing ‘enough’. You’ll feel better by remembering that the thousands of seemingly small acts of kindness you do add up to a huge contribution toward creating a peaceful planet.
  • Seek out other Starpeople. It’s essential to hang with like-minded folks. If you’ll hold the intention of meeting other Starpeople, you’ll soon easily attract them into your life. You can also meet Starpeople on internet message boards and chat rooms, or at events with extraterrestrial themes.
  • Appreciate your uniqueness. Your natural inclinations run counter to many Earthlings. Your standard of beauty is based more on what’s on the inside than the outside; the opposite of many humans. Your priorities are more task oriented than relationship focused. So, Starperson, please honor your uniqueness, stand firm in your beliefs, and don’t water down your capabilities by trying to conform.

I do hope that this has helped you exquisite Starpeople to feel less alone while you’re here on Earth. If you haven’t already, please do seek out others. It is wonderful to be part of a community of people who are here for the same overall purpose, and to share stories and experiences with. As always, please leave me a comment if you feel so inclined.

Incarnated Elementals

faerie

“When you look into the eyes of an Incarnated Elemental, you see twinkles of mischief or playfulness.”

Did you determine that you are an INCARNATED ELEMENTAL from the Earth Angel quiz? According to Doreen Virtue, this is one of the easiest groups to recognize among the realms. Like the Incarnated Angels, elementals physically look like their namesakes: fairies, pixies, elves, gnomes, unicorns, and incarnated animals. Besides the guardian angels we all have, this group has fairies as their protective spirits.

Very often, members of this group have reddish hair (strawberry-blonde, auburn, or full-on red) and a Celtic heritage and/or appearance, such as a ruddy complexion or freckles.

If you are confused about whether you are an Incarnated Angel or an Incarnated Elemental, here are five questions you can ask yourself to help you distinguish between the two realms:

  1. How do I feel about rules? If you’re an Incarnated Angel, you usually obey rules and get angry at people who break them. If you’re an Incarnated Elemental, then you can’t stand rules and think that people who abide by them are wimps.
  2. Is there mischief in my eyes? Elementals are fun-loving beings, often practical jokers, and are always looking for a laugh. Incarnated Angels tend to be serious and polite. If you’re not sure, ask someone close to you if you have a persistent twinkle in your eyes. If you go back-and-forth between naughty and nice, then you may be a MerAngel, which is a hybrid blend of the Angel and Elemental realms.
  3. What type of wings do I have? Angels have feathered wings, while many Elementals have butterfly or dragonfly wings. The wings are etheric, not physical. To determine your wing type, either consult a clairvoyant, or go within and feel for yourself. Focus upon your shoulder blades and feel or see (in your mind’s eye) whether the wings are large, feathery, swan-like appendages or more like buzzing and beautiful butterfly or dragonfly wings.  Also, note your body type: Incarnated Elementals usually have slim bodies, fast metabolisms, and sensitive nervous systems. Incarnated Angels have voluptuous bodies. slow metabolisms, and mellow personalities. The exceptions are Merpeople, who are voluptuous hybrids of both the angel and elemental realms.
  4. What is my relationship to addictions? Most Incarnated Angels are codependents, while Elementals are the addicts. Elementals love to party; Angels love to rescue! The exception is that many Incarnated Angels are addicted to food.
  5. What is my disposition? Elementals tend to have fiery, passionate personality styles, while Angels are patient and calm (at least they appear that way to others).

Sometimes Incarnated Elementals are unsure whether they might actually be from the realm of the Wise Ones. That’s because Elementals have ancient history and relationships with wizards, witches, and sorceresses. So the Wise Ones feel very familiar to Incarnated Elementals. After all, the Elementals were present when the witches were burned, so they may have residual pain from that era, even though they themselves were not killed. They may have memories of the burnings and confuse them with their own recollections. The primary difference is that Elementals are much more playful than Wise Ones, who tend to be extremely serious, or even somber or stern.

In fact, Incarnated Elementals often get themselves into trouble with their wacky sense of humor. Their jokes may be ill-timed, offensive, off-color, or just plain inappropriate. But one of the Incarnated Elementals’ missions is to get the world to lighten up, smile and laugh – even at their own expense. They often become professional entertainers, including comedians, actors, singers, dancers and musicians.

The Elementals are much less people-oriented than the Angels. They like to associate with others so they can party, then they want to be left alone afterwards. Many are in helping professions involving people, but usually because they have a “calling” to do so. Like the Hobbit Frodo in the book and movie The Lord of The Rings, Incarnated Elementals are reluctant heroes who help people because they have to, not necessarily because they want to.

They need a lot of space and alone time, especially outside in nature. Elementals can be shy and very private, even though they’re extroverted in social gatherings. They appear to be very open about their private lives, yet there’s a guardedness that keeps them from revealing their deepest secrets unless they absolutely trust a person – and that’s very rare. They may have an “off-with-their-heads” policy about people in their lives. In other words, when Incarnated Elementals are done with a relationship, they’re really done.

Compared to other Earth Angel realms, Incarnated Elementals are a physically robust group, reporting very few health problems, perhaps because Elementals are more apt to spend time outdoors, hiking and exercising in fresh air and sunshine. Or, maybe their optimism makes them minimize or deny health concerns. The only noticeable health pattern in the surveys submitted by Elementals was a high frequency of depression, and several said they had histories of childhood asthma. This corresponds with reports that fairies are sensitive to airborne chemicals and need to avoid pesticides in their gardens and foods. It could also be claustrophobia from spending too much time indoors, since the Elemental soul needs healthy doses of fresh air.

Incarnated Elementals have fairies, elves or leprechauns with them as spirit guides; and they can call upon these benevolent helpers at any time by thinking the thought: “Please help me!”

Guidance and suggestions if you are an Incarnated Elemental:

  • Spend a lot of time in nature. Take your shoes and socks off and walk in the grass or soil everyday as a way of staying grounded and connected to the earth.
  • Laugh and play. Elementals who don’t play often become depressed. Look for new ways to be silly, have fun, and laugh daily.
  • Manifest consciously. See yourself as healthy, fulfilled, abundant, and loved. Call upon your counterparts in the spiritual Elemental kingdom to help you manifest your desires.
  • Don’t throw fireballs. Elementals’ tempers are legendary, and Incarnated Elementals are no exception. When you throw a fit of rage, be careful, because you’re literally throwing fireballs of hot emotion!  These fireballs can cause the objects of your wrath emotional or physical pain. Your power is like a volcano when you erupt, so please use caution. Plus, the energy can boomerang and cause painful effects for you. If you find that you’ve inadvertently thrown a fireball, extinguish its power immediately by calling upon the spiritual Elementals’ help.
  • Detox. You’re more effective at manifesting with the high, stable energy of sobriety. You’ll also feel happier and healthier with a detoxified mind and body.
  • Engage in environmentalism. Volunteer your time or give donations to charities involved in cleaning the earth or helping animals. Recycle religiously, and purchase nontoxic cleaning chemicals and environmentally friendly products.

I hope that this has resonated with you fun-loving Elementals! As always, please let me know if you have any questions or comments. I do love hearing from you!

 

Incarnated Angels

Earth20Angel_medium

  “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels” ~Apostle Paul

 

Did you determine you are an INCARNATED ANGEL from the Earth Angel quiz two days ago? According to Doreen Virtue, those incarnated angels that elect to live their entire lives in a human body are probably among the dearest lightworkers imaginable.

Incarnated Angels tend to:

  • Have sweet, heart-shaped faces
  • Apologize and say “I’m sorry” frequently
  • “Look” like angels, whether they’re male or female
  • Have cupid-bow lips and large doe-like eyes that radiate innocence and love
  • Have overeating or weight issues
  • Be professional helpers, such as teachers, flight attendants, nurses and counselors
  • Lighten or highlight their hair (no matter what their genetic race is)
  • Be very trusting of people
  • Have difficulty saying ‘no’ and feel guilty when others help them
  • Love angels and have collections of angel statues, books, jewelry, etc.
  • Have extra guardian angels
  • Seem to glow, with a huge aura around them
  • Fall in love with someone’s potential and try to coach that person to greatness
  • Have codependent relationships much longer than the average person would

Many Incarnated Angels struggle with health challenges, especially fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and gynecological problems. These apply equally as well to male and female Incarnated Angels who look past the surface when they meet people and see their inner talents, divinity, and potential. Incarnated Angels share these characteristics with angels in the spirit world, who only focus on inner beauty, and urge humans to polish their natural talents in order to make the world a better place.

Incarnated Angels, as all of the Earth Angel Realms, are extremely sensitive to energy. Incarnated Angels, though, may be especially vulnerable to toxic energies and energy drains because of their “men and women who love too much” predilection. Incarnated Angels need to practice energy shielding and clearing techniques, otherwise it’s like going out into a blizzard without a jacket on.

Many are compulsive over-eaters, and it’s very common for these lightworkers to carry extra weight on their bodies. Food provides a way for them to ground themselves when they feel spaced-out, and it’s also an outlet for stress. It seems that the reason so many are overweight is not due to overeating, it’s because they are energetically shielding themselves with fat. Losing weight is difficult for these angels, even with exercise and stringent dieting. This seems to be especially true among those who are massage therapists, or who are otherwise involved in healing touch. They absorb their client’s toxic emotions, and their bodies blow up like sponges absorbing water.

With their voluptuous bodies, exquisitely beautiful faces, and large hairdos, female Incarnated Angels look like plus-size beauty queens. They’re often told, “You have such a pretty face. If only you’d lose weight, you’d be gorgeous!” Male Incarnated Angels are burly teddy bear types and/or have sweet and boyish faces.

Incarnated Angels are born to help and heal, and they come to Earth ready to enact this mission. However, this eagerness can create difficulties if it’s unbalanced. For example, these angels carry such optimism about (and love for) humanity that they often have difficulty saying no. Self-help books and tapes, or even assertiveness training, may help them since many say no to themselves in the form of self-denial, while saying yes to everyone else. Incarnated Angels often apologize for asking for help, or don’t delegate at all, and then resent the fact that no one is helping them. Some will even feel guilty about asking their Guardian Angels for assistance, due to a fear of ‘bothering them’.

The way to heal in this area is to reframe the whole topic of ‘receiving’. This means that these angels need to realize that they can give and help others more if they allow themselves to first receive. Many Incarnated Angels have ‘giving and receiving imbalances’. The Law of Giving and Receiving means that whenever we give, we automatically receive. It’s the flow and the core of the Universe. Giving continuously, without taking time out for themselves, is another reason why these angels suffer from fatigue. The affirmations to heal this imbalance are: “I receive good graciously,” and “The more that I allow myself to receive, the better able I am to help others.” If Incarnated Angels would affirm these words repeatedly and adopt the habit of self-pampering, they’d be more open to receiving in other ways, such as accepting help with their mission.

If you’re an Incarnated Angel, you’ll have a more peaceful and prosperous time on Earth if you remember to do the following:

  • Shield yourself with energy and light, especially before helping someone. This will reduce your need to overeat in order to protect yourself with a layer of extra body weight.
  • Wait before saying yes. Instead of automatically agreeing to every request for help, give yourself time to meditate, and think about whether it’s something that truly is part of your mission and your hearts desire. When people ask something of you, tell them you’ll think about it and get back to them. They will respect the fact that you’re taking care of yourself.
  • Replace the apology habit with positive affirmations. Incarnated Angels habitually apologize when they’ve done nothing wrong. This habit stems from the desire to keep everyone happy, even if it means shifting the blame onto themselves.
  • Engage in cardiovascular exercise. This helps in stress and weight management and is important for healthy hearts.
  • Balance your giving and receiving quotas.  Be sure to give yourself treats regularly.
  • Drop any rules that restrict your mission. Notice whether you have personal “rules” you follow without question, such as, “I better not get too successful, or people will be jealous of me and feel pain from this jealousy.” Question rules by asking, “Is this rule working for my mission or against it?”
  • Delegate. Ask for help without apologizing.
  • Accept good graciously. Allow people to give you assistance, presents, and compliments.
  • Play. Allow your inner child plenty of time to be silly, free, and creative.

So, you beautiful Incarnated Angels, I hope this has resonated with you and helps you feel like you’re not alone here. I also hope that this has perhaps empowered you to be more sure of yourself, and to stand your ground. You are worthy of receiving all you want in this life, all while being of service to others.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments; I love hearing from you! I will be out of town the remainder of this week, so will continue this weekend with details on another Earth Angel.

SCORING: Count the number of TRUE answers for each successive group of SIX statements, beginning with the first six. Example: 1-6, 7-12, etc. The number of TRUE answers in each grouping that you noted may reveal which realm you’re from.

If you answered 4 or more TRUE’s to statement numbers 1 – 6, then you’re probably an INCARNATED ANGEL.

If you answered 4 or more TRUE’s to statement numbers 7 – 12, then you’re probably an INCARNATED ELEMENTAL.

If you answered 4 or more TRUE’s to statement numbers 13 -18, then you’re probably a STARPERSON.

If you answered 4 or more TRUE’s to statement numbers 19 – 24, then you’re probably a WALK-IN.

If you answered 4 or more TRUE’s to statement numbers 25 – 30, then you’re probably a WISE ONE.

What group did you most strongly relate to? Did you relate to more than one group? My next posts will give detailed information on these groups as well as those that are like ‘hybrids’ – a combination of more than one group. For example, I am a Mystic Angel, which is a cross between an Incarnated Angel and a Wise One; and it makes so much sense to me. Keep an eye out for my next post, coming real soon! And please let me know which group you’ve related to!

 

Powerful Are Our Words And Thoughts

They’re just words, right? What power could they possibly hold over you? And our own inner dialogue – quickly said or thought – what does that matter, anyway?

Well, as it turns out, those words spoken to you as a child become ingrained in you. It doesn’t matter if they were always loving words, or harsh and negative ones. A child who is raised hearing that they are troublemakers, are stupid, will never amount to anything, or are ugly, will continue to hear those words in their head as adults. How will those words affect their pursuit of a career or a relationship?

And what about the words never spoken, yet because of the actions of a parent, still scream loud in your head? What is being “said” by an absent parent to their child? That they’re not worthy of your time and of your love?

If you grew up hearing negative words, and they are still affecting you in your life today, it is time to confront them. There are many different ways to do this, and you will need to choose the method(s) that will ring true to you. Here are some of my ideas:

  • Traditional Counseling
  • Tapping – also known as EFT for Emotional Freedom Technique
  • Forgiveness. Often, your parents were only doing what they knew; it was how they were raised.
  • Positive Affirmations
  • Quantum Biofeedback

If possible, you can also have a discussion with your parents about how their words have affected you as a child and as an adult. If they open up during this talk, it can be an incredible healing experience for both them and you.

Now, to take this further; as an adult, what if you are, or were, in a relationship with someone who belittles you? Over time you may begin to believe what you’re being told. You’ll feel heavy, dragged down, like the weight of the world is on your shoulders. Please don’t fall into that trap. Know that you are even greater that you believe, and stronger than you feel. Make the changes that you need to live the life you so rightly deserve.

2014 is your year. It’s time. Make the changes you need, both physically and emotionally. Ask for, and graciously accept, help for your new journey. This is your time to turn on your soul light. Make this your year to let your light shine bright. And let it be a beacon!

 

Happy New Year!

A Very Thankful Day

So a crazy thing happened the day after I published my last article on intuition (Recognizing the Flow of Intuition), which included how we may feel if we choose to ignore it. I say crazy because there are so many adjectives that I could use to describe this event. Here’s what happened:

My husband of 26 years chose to ignore his intuition, and if it wasn’t for his guides and angels intervening, he would now be on the other side. He is a diesel mechanic and works on all those big rigs you see going down the road. He was in one of his customer’s yards to work on a trailer fully loaded with luxury cars. Just as he was heading under the trailer on his creeper, he said he got a feeling that he shouldn’t be under there. He briefly stopped heading under as he received this feeling, then he chose to ignore it and went under the trailer. Aaaa!!!

He wasn’t under it very long when he heard a little noise and realized what was going to happen. He managed to get almost all of his body out from under the trailer when the jack slipped out and the trailer came down on him. The worst of his injuries is a torn ear, which required stitches. He also has a contusion above his heart (x-rays showed no damage internally). Why do we know he had help from spirit in this accident? From getting out from under as much he did (I can just picture them pulling his legs out), and from his head being turned to the side. It was several factors that came in to play here; the exact location of his exit, his head being turned, not being pinned…

So some of my other adjectives with this are: scary, dismay, shock, disappointment, grateful, appreciative, ….. you get the idea.

The hubby said he almost didn’t want me to know that he ignored the warning he received because he knew I’d be upset. Well, yeah. However, after my initial reaction of “how could you not listen to your intuition??”, I was just so grateful that I still had him here in the physical world, and that he was whole.

Recognizing the Flow of Intuition

As intuition is associated with feelings, it is common to experience physical or psychological sensations, both when the intuition is flowing and when we are not following it.

Intuition can show as:

  • Goose bumps or tingling up and down the spine
  • Clarity and inner peace
  • Happy butterflies in the stomach
  • And the feeling of “Aaaah! Yes! Of course!”

When we don’t follow it, we feel:

  • A sinking feeling, exhaustion, cold and hot shivers
  • An awareness that “I’ve done it again.”
  • Uneasiness in the stomach
  • A feeling of “Get out of this fast!”
  • Anxiety, depression, feeling trapped

Learning to recognize our own signs is important for a healthy intuition. Following the signs is even healthier! Living with regret depletes our energy and limits our joyful times.

Sources of Inner Wisdom or Intuition

These may vary according to the belief system of the individual, although it is not important to have a religious or spiritual belief in order to be intuitive. Ideas include:

  • Instinctual intuition, innate to our animal nature, a survival mechanism and to which, as human beings, we add experience, observation and cultural guidance to develop wisdom.
  • A history of knowing things, a quality passed down through the families, possibly through the genes. These people are known as the seers, or wise women.
  • Insight emerging from one’s higher self or inner self, the part of us which does not incarnate into the physical form, possessing a wisdom which is beyond minor, ego-based concerns.
  • Intuitive awareness coming through guidance, assuming a direct connection with the world of spirit or beings on other planes of existence. Links include with those who have passed over, such as ancestors or with those lovingly involved with the spiritual well-being of the individual. Intuitive guidance is commonly generated by Spirit Guides, by those of the Angelic realms and by the Masters.
  • Contact with the Collective Unconscious
  • Connection with God or the Creative Force
  • A whole brain experience where reception occurs through the right brain before passing across the corpus callosum to be brought into focus by the left-brain.

I strongly relate to #2 on the list, as I was born knowing things. Things that I shouldn’t have known at such a young age, however I did somehow. I also have a strong connection with my Spirit Guides and believe that my higher self has a lot to do with my intuition.

Which of these ideas do you resonate with? Do you believe you have another source for your intuition; one that I did not list? If you’re open to sharing, please leave a comment for me. We’re here to learn from each other!

What’s the Difference Between Intuition and Gut Feelings?

“Listen to your intuition. It will tell you everything you need to know”  – Anthony J. D’Angelo

 

I know there are a lot of people that would argue they are one and the same. Men especially use the phrase “I had a gut feeling” or a “gut reaction” and probably use those phrases from a combination of how they were raised (what their parents, and particularly their fathers, said) and feeling like the word ‘intuition’ is too feminine.

Gut feelings are instantaneous insights that accurately reflect disharmony. However, they can be unconsciously distorted by past experiences with unresolved emotions related to one’s own life. It is therefore important to temper such input with compassion and higher wisdom and be willing to go deep within one’s self so as to clear old prejudices and stories collected from the past.

As an example, you are introduced to someone who has the same first name as a previous boyfriend or girlfriend. On hearing their name, your gut feelings say, “Ugh. I don’t want anything to do with this person.” However, if you stopped and listened to your intuition, it says, “Isn’t it time you moved beyond this issue?”

Intuition is a sensory experience and therefore described as “gut feelings, a hunch, instinct” or felt “in the bones or the waters” while some people have “a nose for it” or “follow their nose.” It is a state of inner knowing which often emerges out of the blue. It is an immediate appreciation by the mind without reasoning. Men and women are equally intuitive; however, men are more apt to act on their intuition more than women by seeing it as ‘instinctual’ and therefore obvious. Women tend to second-guess themselves.

The purpose of intuition is to connect to expanding facets of ourselves, other people, and the world in which we live. When psychic abilities are used purely for material or ego gain, intuition is not evoked, for this inner knowing always leads to:
• Increased soul growth and development
• Increased self-consciousness and awareness
• Increased benefit to all concerned starting with those close and extending to the universe.

Our intuition will never let us down. It is we who let it down by:
• Hearing only what we want to hear
• Failing to trust it fully
• Applying limiting logic
• Not following through on the advice

I’ll have more information on intuition in the days to come, including how to recognize the flow of our intuition and the sources of our intuition.
