One of the things most important things I feel like I learned about having intuitive or psychic abilities: When you receive a’intuitive hit’ or ‘psychic hit’ about someone, don’t assume they want to know it. I felt like everyone want to know the information Spirit is giving me about them, wouldn’t they?
The answer is, no.
Not Everyone Wants the Info
This was proven to me at my Spiritual Psychology training in California last year. I received an intuitive ‘hit’ on a woman in class. I didn’t know her. After class I walked up to her and told herI’m a psychic and I was receiving information. I asked her if she wanted to know it.
“No.”, she said bluntly, “and thank you for asking. Maybe tomorrow or some other time, but right now I can’t take in anymore.”
What a huge learning experience for me. Prior to this I used to go up to anyone and everyone and just give them the downloads I was receiving about them, in the spirit of helping. It never occurred to me that someone wouldn’t want to hear it!
We Learn by Experience
Also, in the spirit of helping, wouldn’t it be more empowering to ask a powerful question, rather than blurt out an intuitive hit you just received? Most people learn by experience rather than theory. It’s like… trying to tell someone what chocolate tastes like… I can explain it all day long, but until you actually taste the chocolate; until you actually experience the chocolate, you really will have no idea.
I challenge you, before you share your next intuitive hit with someone, ask yourself:
1. Why do I want to share this with him or her?
2. Does s/he want to hear it (the only way you can truly know is to ask)?
3. Am I taking away his or her power by sharing (and not allowing him or her to find the answers within, or ‘taste the chocolate’)?
4. Is there a powerful question I can ask to lead her to her own Inner Knowing?
Empowering Through Intuition
I believe the greatest gift I can give someone is guiding them back to their Inner Knowing. Once we are connected to That which lives in our Heart Space, we have access to every answer we need. I also believe that psychic gifts are meant to be used for that purpose. Perhaps Spirit is giving you the ‘download’ as a tool to guide people to the divinity and Inner Knowing within them.
What about you? Do you think it is more empowering to share the ‘download’ or to ask a question? Comment and share 🙂
