Do You Doubt Your Intuition?

Everyone has intuition. Everyone has a way of knowing what’s right for them. Everyone has a way of tapping into the universal energies – into the source field around us. And almost everyone doubts their intuition.  

energyThere is so much information out that it can get confusing at times and I really feel that the biggest obstacle to intuition is believing that you have to be perfect. Using your intuition takes practice if you have not been doing it; and it appears in many forms.

In previous articles, I wrote about the four different “clairs,” the different ways that you can know your intuition.* These ways of accessing your intuition through your body are available to everyone.

Since that time I have also discovered that there is much to learn about the way that you receive guidance and tap into universal energies through your birth chart blue prints, Human Design and Astrology.


When working with your intuition, I believe it is very important to set your intention. To strengthen your belief… if you are believing in that divine presence and that the universe is always speaking as George Washington Carver would say, “The universe is always speaking to me, if I am only listening”. I have found this to be true in my experience.


intuitionIf your intention is to be open and receptive to your intuition, or be open and receptive to listening, you will indeed get the information. Trusting the information is another matter. I always like to Ask for information that is for the highest and best good for you at the present time. If you ask for information that you may not be ready to carry out, that might cause you more distress.

So for example, let’s say you’re thinking about the job you’re at and you eventually want to leave, but right now you don’t feel that you can do it. Instead of saying, “when is the best time for me to leave?”… you might get an answer which is “immediately”. A resistance could come up to that. So perhaps it might be better to say something like, “what would be the next steps I could do to feel comfortable about leaving my job?”


You listen or maybe some of you will write the information down. You might get a thought or sense that clearing some of your beliefs may be the next step. Then you could write some of those beliefs that you think might be in the way, such as, “I am open to releasing this job at the right time in the right way.” Or you may get beliefs such as, “I don’t believe I can even release this job… I don’t think there’s anything else out there for me.”

Process your response

Then you could be working with transforming this belief. I usually take the sentence and turn it around into something positive statement, such as…

“I believe that it is possible for me to leave this job and find more fulfilling work. I am open and accept this possibility and I place this in right timing and that it will unfold in right timing.” Therefore you are now in alignment. You are not in conflict with what you are believing.

Nurture Your Response  

Some people question whether it is absolutely one hundred percent true. Or, do I really, really feel it a hundred percent? I believe processing your response is like planting a seed. The more you nurture this thought… this positive intention… and the more you step into it or feel into it, the more it will grow and the very next option will come to you.

Act on Your Response

Now, it might not be related to your current work, but you felt the pull to go there and you go there and you’re chatting with the shopkeeper and you find out that they are actually looking for someone to write a newsletter for their business and that’s your field!

It’s not full-time work, but its part-time work that you could easily handle while you’re still at your current job. BING  O! You followed your intuition that has now led you to a new option. Then you would be working with this for a while and say, “New opportunities are coming to me that are in alignment with my new desire.” And follow it as far along as you can. Practice asking, listening and responding.
