My first intuitive reading was from a woman with a booth on the Venice Beach boardwalk in LA. I was 22 years old and obsessed with this dude (not dating him, just obsessed). I thought he was the "one".
I asked her when I would get married. Her reply: "The angels are laughing at you. You have a long way to go before you'll get married."
Then she sent me on my way.
On one hand, she was totally right. I didn't get married until I was 33 years old. Almost 11 years after that reading.
On the other hand, I wished she had helped a sista' out by telling me that I would experience a dozen or so more heartbreaks until I finally healed my old childhood wounds, let go of my misperceptions about dating and got crystal clear as to what I really wanted in a romantic partner. In other words, I had a heck of a lot of self-work to do to manifest the love I truly desired.
Here is my guide to using intuitive messages to empower you:
1. Intuitive messages may provide some information that is predictive in nature (meaning, "this is your future..."), but try not to use them solely for this purpose.
Use intuitive information to confirm what you've been sensing, to uncover any blocks in your consciousness and to heal the areas of your life where your energy is being used in way that is not in alignment with your truth. An intuitive message is a personal development tool designed to help you better use your energy and the energy in your life.
2. Pay attention to the part of the message that strikes a chord within you and work from that place.
All parts of a messages are relevant, however your ability to understand them will shift as your as your awareness grows.
3. Intuitive messages are designed to help chart the course of your experience, but you have to do the work to make it happen.
Say you get an intuitive reading because you're concerned about your finances and the reader says "money is coming to you". Have faith in this message, but then go do the work to get it. The more faith you have and the more action you take that is directly in alignment with "money is coming to you" the faster you will see your finances transform. (I love helping my clients figure out what actions to take and I have systems and exercises designed to help them achieve results.)
4. Use intuitive messages to shift the energy in your life.
A client came to me because she was afraid she was going to get fired. I advised her to explore the energy around her work. Did she feel valuable? Was she using her time and talents in ways that were in alignment with the goals her employer? Did she appreciate her paycheck?
Your consciousness directly impacts what shows up in your life. Every thought and act is energy and it will eventually come back in some Divine way. Use intuitive messages to help you uncover what you really want and how to focus your energy in ways that are in alignment with you truth.
