The Secret to Discovering Your Intuitive Gifts- Part 3

The Source of Your Intuitive Gifts

Where does your intuition come from?

There are many thoughts about this:

  • from the subconscious
  • higher consciousness or your inner guidance from your wisest part of you
  • your connection to the great flow of universal energy

I believe that all of the above is true.

And I agree with Shakti Gawain who says, ”Intuition connects us to the soul level of our existence. Many people who develop their intuition find that it brings them into a deep relationship with their spiritual nature.”

How do we receive intuitive messages?

We can receive intuitive messages in 4 different ways:

  • Clairvoyance – see pictures or symbols
  • Clairaudience – hearing words or messages
  • Clairsentient – an inner feeling
  • Claircognizance – an inner knowing

If you are clairvoyant, you experience intuition as:

  • You receive guidance in the form of pictures or dreams,

usually related to what you need to do

  • You can create results by visualizing the outcome, such as giving a successful speech or workshop
  • You are drawn to see something, a book or a movie that has information that you were looking for
  • You love to read, be organized and color code your materials
  • You are drawn to work where you can see yourself helping others

If you are clairaudient, you experience intuition as:

  • You receive guidance as messages or conversations in your head, ”turn here, book that trip, call your friend”
  • You recognize people by their voices
  • You are quiet and introspective
  • You can discern the truth of what someone is saying
  • You like to create systems of clear procedures
  • You can communicate with pets

If you are clairsentient, you experience intuition as:

  • You receive guidance through sensations in your body
  • You feel the emotions of other people
  • You trust your gut instincts (like TV detectives)
  • You feel when something is not right about a situation
  • You are excellent at details
  • You are drawn to work as a healer or excellent customer service representative

If you are claircognizant, you experience intuition as:

  • You receive guidance as an inspiration or a hunch
  • You are very creative and have a lot of projects
  • You can see the bigger picture but  often can’t communicate it to others
  • You scan information quickly or download ideas
  • You get “ah -has” or breakthroughs while resting
  • You are drawn to work as a musician, artist or business manager

Everyone has the ability to receive guidance in all 4 ways.  But usually you have a primary and a secondary gift.
