Yes – You are Intuitive!
By Liz Koumantzelis, MA
We all have intuition. ALL of us. Most of us think of it as a gut feeling – something you just know or sense without understanding why or how. Many of the most accomplished people, including some of the world’s top CEOs, attribute much of their success to their intuition and claim to often rely more on their gut instincts than on analytical data.
Albert Einstein had this to say about the power of intuition:
“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift, and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”
For many of us, intuition often shows up randomly and in small ways such as a hunch or an intuitive ‘hit’. It’s the reason you know which direction to turn without looking at a map, or who is calling before you pick up the phone. Your intuition can also show up as a warning that something’s not quite right. We’ve all had the experience of having the hairs on the back of our neck stand up or of getting an uneasy feeling when meeting someone for the first time – that’s your intuition speaking to you through your physical senses!
Intuition can also show up in times of crisis or when someone needs our help. My mother often got inner knowings when raising her seven children. On one occasion, she woke up in the middle of the night and knew that something was wrong. She got out of bed and was drawn instinctively to the girl’s bathroom, which was all the way on the far side of the house. There she found that my older sister had fainted and was lying unconscious on the floor. It was my mother’s inner knowing that guided her to my sister’s aid that night.
While we are all born with an innate ability to access to our inner wisdom, due to a variety of conditions, both personal and societal, over time, the majority of us will gradually loose or greatly diminish that sacred connection. The good news is that we all have the capacity to reclaim and come back into alignment with this source of higher intelligence.
Develop your intuition
Intuition doesn’t have to remain something that only shows up sporadically or occasionally, and there’s far more to it than we have been led to believe. Even the US government has been studying the use of psychic abilities for decades. Project Star Gate studied ‘remote viewing’ back in the 70s as a way to spy on the Russians – among other things. The truth is that our intuitive senses are really more like superpowers that, due to our left-centric dominated world (which values logic, structure, analytics, and rules), go largely untapped and undervalued.
When you consciously work to develop your intuitive abilities and senses – they deepen and expand. They become a part of your everyday experiences and help you navigate both your personal and professional lives. Developing your intuition can help you discern for yourself what’s true and what isn’t despite what you’re being told, and it gives you access to a universal intelligence that goes far beyond your conditioning and belief paradigm, by connecting you to higher perceptions and higher consciousness. It allows you to gain access to your creative forces and find new and better ways of understanding and operating in the world.
There’s power in numbers
One of the best ways to grow and develop your intuition and experience the unique ways in which your intuition will unfold for you, is to work with a group of like-minded individuals who share similar intentions and goals. There truly is power in numbers, and when we practice with one another we amplify each other’s intuitive gifts making it easier to access and develop them. More often than not, people will receive the same or similar information to one another when working together in a group setting. This helps to build confidence, and when we believe in ourselves we accelerate our development and open more quickly to our inner guidance.
If you’d like to experience how much easier life can be when you align with your inherent intuitive nature, join my Intuitive Development I & II Workshops. Classes start March 5th, and you will receive a Free Personal Energetic Healing Session (a $200 value!) when you sign up for both. Visit my website Uplift + Lighten to see a full list of my offerings.
Join me to build community and cultivate self-empowerment as you learn to align with universal intelligence.
Here’s what one participant had to say about the Intuitive Development I workshop:
“Liz’s Intuitive Development class taught me how to ask clarifying questions and better interpret the information I receive. I now listen within before making important decisions; the practical applications are endless. Plus, it was really fun. Everyone was so open––it felt like you were seeing your best friends each week.”
