“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt within the heart.” ~Hellen Keller
My intuitive abilities were heightened when I experienced pregnancy insomnia while expecting my first child. In the wee hours of the morning, having fallen completely out of sync with the regular sleep-wake-cycle, I was uncomfortably caught between brain frequencies, in a somewhat dreamlike state, much of the time. I sensed and felt “things” that I could not see with my eyes, or touch with my hands. I was scared and thought I was “going crazy.” This worry persisted for a couple more years. With a love of neuroscience, endless curiousity, and practicing meditation, I was able to understand what was happening to me. What I now know is that we are all born intuitive. As we develop and spend increasing amounts of time in “thinking” mode (beta frequency of the brain), it becomes habit for us to only move into the slower brain wave states (alpha and theta) while falling asleep or in deep sleep (delta). It is in these slower states that the thinking mind takes a backseat and our intuitive perception emerges. With dedication and practice, anyone can learn to use these slower brain frequencies during waking hours. It is a process of remembering and relearning, rather than gaining a new skill. It was helpful to me that I was born a highly sensitive person.
I use higher sense perception and intuition to assess and work with the invisible energetic aspects of a person or animal, such as their thoughts, feelings, stored stressors, aura, chakras, soul and spirit.
