Whether you believe it or not, you have intuitive superpowers. Every day as you go about your normal activities you’re receiving messages from people you know and love, strangers you encounter on the street, your Soul (or higher self), and the Universe.
Sometimes these messages feel like happy coincidences, other times they feel spookily synchronistic, and often they fly completely under the radar until you look back and remember feeling something “off” about a certain person or situation. It’s only when you have evidence to back up the intuitive information that it actually feels real to you. But what if you started trusting the messages you received before they made logical sense?
Imagine being so in flow and in alignment with your life and no longer feeling lost, fearful, and confused about where you’re going.That’s what life is like when you learn to trust yourself and your intuition.
I remember the first major decision I made 100% on my intuition and oh my God was it a big one. At the time I was working as a health coach for a successful corporate wellness company, but I knew I wanted to start my own business and more than anything I wanted the freedom to travel.
I had planned on going to part-time first and then eventually quitting my job when I had a full-time income from my coaching programs. That plan quickly changed one night when I received a clear message from my intuition. I felt this pulling in the center of my chest and in that instant I knew without really knowing why that I was about to take a leap into the unknown. I was being nudged (hard!) to go ahead and quit my job without a real safety net, sell everything I owned, and move abroad.
So that's exactly what I did - the very next day I had a meeting with my manager and I gave my official notice of resignation.
It was the craziest thing I’ve ever done, and oddly enough I wasn’t all that scared! (I actually felt kinda badass!) I didn’t know how I knew what I knew, but that didn’t matter because it felt so right.
Looking back I’m so grateful I was able to trust my gut instinct because it's now over a year and a half later and I'm now living a beautiful life in New Zealand with my partner I met while traveling and I'm now working as a healer - something I never would have imagined happening the day I decided to throw caution to the wind and trust myself.
Maybe you’ve had a similar experience, but even if you haven’t don’t worry because you can receive clear guidance and support like this too. All you have to do is pay closer attention.
Not convinced you have superpowers?
Here are 4 ways you receive intuitive messages every day without even realizing it:
Next time you have an issue or a problem and you need guidance on how to move forward, pay attention to the words around you in the form of song lyrics, quotes, people’s conversations, or even random signs you pass on the highway. Because intuitive information is often hidden in plain sight, it can and will show up in the most unexpected places. All you need to do is be open to the possibilities.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve received the a perfect book recommendation or random word of encouragement from a stranger at the exact time I needed it. This has probably already happened to you many times before, but your logical mind chalked it up to coincidence. The more you pay attention, the more you’ll realize that it’s so much more than that and you receive even more messages than before!
If you’re a very visual person, you may receive messages more often in the form of pictures or images either in your mind’s eye or in your physical environment. For example, imagine you’re trying to decide if moving to Hawaii is the best thing for your right now and suddenly a car passes by you with a dancing hula girl on the dashboard. Now that’s a clear sign from Spirit! And yes, Spirit can have a sense of humor sometimes haha!
Dreams are another way to receive intuitive messages so if you tend to remember yours I encourage you to keep a journal and see what comes up for you. I’ve even asked my Spirit guides or my intuition right before I go to sleep at night to answer a question for me in my dreams. It works even if you don’t remember receiving the information on a conscious level.
Pretty cool huh?
Have you ever heard of angel numbers? An angel number is a repeating sequence of numbers like 444 or 555 that carries a special meaning from Spirit or The Universe. One of my favorites is 1111. Anytime I see this number I know I’m on the right track and I should keep going even if I’m feeling discouraged and/or my progress is slow going.
Maybe you already have a lucky number that makes you feel good when you see it, and whether it’s an angel number or not it still counts! One thing I love about intuitive gifts is that every person has a special way of interpreting information they receive according to their own experiences and personality. Once you understand the messages Spirit has for you, it becomes easier and easier to identify and trust they are real and meant for you.
The way you feel around certain people, places, or situations can be one of the strongest intuitive messages you receive. Have you ever gotten a bad feeling about someone even though logically you had no reason to feel that way? How often has that feeling been wrong?
If you’re like me, hardly ever is your gut instinct about someone wrong but you often ignore these feelings because you want to believe otherwise and/or you feel silly trusting something without evidence that it’s true. I try my best these days to trust my gut feelings especially when they don’t make sense. The intuition goes beyond logic and the rational mind, which means if you try to understand it that way it won't make sense. It just doesn’t work that way.
When you’re developing your intuitive gifts, the best policy is to trust even when it’s uncomfortable. The more you trust the messages you receive, the better you’ll get at interpreting them and the more developed your psychic senses will become. It’s a beautiful ride!
I hope this post has helped you see just how intuitive you already are. You are truly connected to an endless well of inspiration, creativity, love, and abundance and it is your purpose to tap into that well and share your gifts with others.
Developing your intuitive superpowers is the first step to making a real impact with your gifts, and it starts simply being aware of the messages you receive and trusting that they are meant for you.
