Derailed by chronic illness, bed ridden and feeling hopeless, one woman aligns with her intuitive gifts and finds a way out so she can guide others to do the same
When you know, you know…however, allowing yourself to know is a different story. For me, intuition is allowing yourself to trust and express this spontaneous sense — this invisible knowingness. That is witnessing the divine 6th sense in action manifesting and unfolding in front of me (and you, and anyone who wants to listen).
Around the age of 45, I became curious about my intuitive abilities. As a child, I recall experiencing ‘knowings’ and hearing whispers in my ears when no one else was around me. I didn’t quite know what to do with it all, so I pushed them away. As I grew older, I ignored the intuitive nudges. They were easy to shove aside and disregard in lieu of distractions. But along with that, I fell deeper into a pattern of constant illness & injury.
When chronic health issues derailed me from a very physical career as a dancer, I found myself bedridden, hopeless and I praying for answers. This isolation created enough stillness within me to observe daily intuitive synchronicities — now too strong to ignore. My intuition had come a knockin’ and this time, wasn’t going to be unheard. Honestly, at first I thought I was losing my mind. However, over time, with persistent questioning and deep contemplation into my psyche and past, I realized I was Intuitive and had been running from my intuition my entire life.
This time I opened the door and let it all in. I stopped resisting.
By giving myself permission to question the indoctrination of my belief systems, I opened up a new level of exploration and understanding of this intuitive gift. I started with questioning and exploring. Where did these beliefs come from? Whose are they to begin with? Do they feel like truth to me? If not, it was time to move on.
I’ve studied ancient esoteric sacred knowledge, meditation and the power of our words and prayer. I’ve applied intuitive healing modalities, and have experienced Divine healing from chronic illness…I’m no longer bedridden. In that painful silence, I awakened. I realized that my calling is to provide intuitive guidance to others and aid in their journey to know themselves better — and to reconnect to that version of themselves. My experiences have become the tools that help me help others.
And yes, there have been multiple times I’ve betrayed my intuition. But the most regretful and distressing time was when I received intuitive guidance concerning the mental state of a dear friend and I went to check on him. I didn’t arrive at his house in time to intervene. He had committed suicide. While I cannot claim responsibility for that, this gut-wrenching experience reminds me every time I get an intuitive hit — to pay attention, follow the lead, take action — listen.
My vision for an intuitive world is to remove the fear-based stigma and perception that intuition is some ‘evil, satanic gift’ from the devil. When in fact, intuition is our birthright to be explored and fully embraced in order to improve our lives, by healing ourselves from the inside out, healing our families and relationships. Our innate wisdom is divinely guided by our connection to the Infinite Divine. The more we understand ourselves at soul level, the more we are aligned to our divinity.
Using our free will to experience contrast in our reality only furthers our journey home to align with our divine will, the truest essence of ourselves. It is my greatest desire to see people wake up to this paradigm.
But just as I did, oftentimes, we need to experience who we AREN’T in order to experience who we really ARE.
Living an intuitive life is how we can step fully into our highest potential. When I work with clients, I’m the intuitive detective shining light in dark places, offering the tools and encouragement to rise above their personal limitations with the hope that all dreams and soul-inspired desires are possible. Why? Because I’ve been there. I know what it’s like to deny that knowledge and better yet, I know what it’s like to embrace it.
Choose the latter…you won’t regret it.
I’m Sovereign, I’m Divine, I’m Free. I’m Intuitive. (So are you.)—Windy Woo
