I’d like to share a simple truth I’ve learned from years of psychic work and doing readings—each and every one of us on this planet have natural born intuition. Some people use it, while others do not. The greatest difference between psychics and most people is: Psychics trust their gut! We all have feelings, hunches, first instincts as they say, but unfortunately, more often than not, we disregard these truths. We say “I must be making this up” or “maybe I’m overreacting.” The truth is, we have been told time and again that the intuition of our bodies will lead us astray. I think otherwise.
As creations of the Divine, we are all made with wisdom, spirit and truths planted deep inside. This includes YOU! Our physical bodies are made up of visible tools like hands, feet, eyes, ears and skin to help guide and direct our actions. We also have inner tools we don’t see but we know exist, like our brain, heart and blood. Do we question these organs because we cannot see them? Of course not! We know these are components that make up the whole of ourselves.
One of our greatest attributes as humans is our deep knowing, which many refer to as “the gut.” Our knowing is a valuable place where inherent wisdom and intuition is held. We can’t see it, but we sure can feel it! Gut response is intuitive, mental response is analytical. If you’re going round and round the mental mire, STOP! Get out of your mind and down into your gut! A friend of mine called me recently—completely a mess, confused, frightened and out of sorts. I had spoken with her the night before, just before her first date with Josh. The story went something like this: Gert was asked out by Josh, who seemed nice and interesting. She said yes and immediately noticed a knot come racing to her gut. As the hour of the date came closer, the feeling got worse and she thought she would vomit… We met for tea just before the date and she relayed this awful string of sensations.
I said “Girl, cancel the date!” She didn’t… Lo and behold, early on in the evening, the man became clingy and began showing signs of being totally crazy! The date continued, as did Gert’s ever worsening stomachache. The night got more and more bizarre and finally enough was enough. Gert set her boundary, left the date and called me in tears. More often than not, gut wrenching situations can be avoided by gut-checking first! This is a tool I use as a reader for California Psychics. Throughout my readings I am checking in with what is real, what my gut is telling me and trusting that it is absolutely accurate. The more we listen to our bodies, the wisdom within, the more we will make choices that lead us in the direction we want our lives to go! So are you listening to your deep knowing or ignoring it?
Tip from Daphne: Check in with your gut! Take a moment before speaking, acting or responding to listen to your body’s intuitive guidance and go get ‘em!
