One woman learns that whether making decisions big or small, there is one thing to rely upon…her intuition
Your intuition is your lifeline — and you came into this world with it. It’s your connection to everything that is good and powerful — your connection to the divine. It’s your internal navigation system. It guides you on your journey through life. Those who have learned early on to trust their intuition have a much easier journey than those who fight it at every turn, resisting its wisdom.
I first became aware of my intuitive gifts when I was just 3 years old. I had an angel visit and she told me that I was special and that I had a beautiful ‘gift’. I didn’t realize what she meant until a few years later when I started to get information about people and events that I had no prior knowledge of. It was also at this point, that I started getting visits from my loved ones who had passed.
Because my experience with intuition and spirit started when I was young, it was easy for me to integrate it into all the areas of my life as I was growing up. I really didn’t know any other way to live. This was my ‘normal’.
Being an intuitive child, my parents found me to be very challenging to raise. They both saw the world in terms of black and white. So, if it wasn’t logical or explainable, they couldn’t understand how it could be true. My parents questioned and challenged all of my choices and decisions while growing up. It was at these times in my life that I found myself betraying my intuition the most, which led to some costly ‘bad decisions’. Ultimately, I knew deep down what was best for me, but since they always made me feel otherwise — I never felt confident enough to trust myself. Thankfully, with the help of my intuition, I found the strength to do what was needed to get me back on my journey. I listened to the voice within.
In life it really all comes down to making a decision — asking and then listening for the answer.
Imagine that your Dad had a major stroke and is paralyzed on the left side and unconscious. The doctor is asking you to make a life or death decision about giving him a new drug that could either reverse the damage of the stroke or kill him. Thus far, everyone in the hospital that has taken this drug has died. Time is running out. You only have 3 minutes to decide. Could you make that decision yourself?
Well, I had to because this was my Dad and my experience. Within seconds of me asking God what I should do, I received a YES! Without any hesitation, I told the doctor to go ahead. Within 20 minutes of receiving that drug, my Dad was awake and able to get up and walk. I was able to make that critical decision because of my connection with my intuition, because I trusted it…and because I acted upon it.
My vision is to teach and coach both children and adults the importance of learning how to use and trust their own intuition so they can make good decisions in their lives — from the most mundane to the life-or-death ones. You never know, you might need to save a life and it just might be your own! And there is something you can always rely upon…your intuition. My advice: Start clearing the pathway. You’ll never regret it.
