“I feel there are two people inside me - me and my intuition. If I go against her, she'll screw me every time, and if I follow her, we get along quite nicely.” – Kim Basinger,Actress
What if that annoying little voice inside of you was right?
What if that feeling that something was wrong at work or maybe that it was time to end a relationship, was dead on? Yeah…gulp…what IF…that feeling is right?
Often we ignore that hunch, that celestial nod & that gut reaction. No it would be too horrible to look at, too troublesome to imagine.Or we may just obsess over the thought without delving deeper for understanding or appropriate action.
Hell, well…maybe we are WRONG…Or maybe, just maybe we are more right than we have EVER been and it scares the Mary, the Sophia, Sarasvati & Shekinah out of us!
If we ignore it enough, it will go away. Ok…
News flash! Intuition & deeper wisdom are at work here. It’s a work in progress, but its working and guess what? The more you listen, the more you flow in your life. The more you listen and take appropriate actions or attitude adjustments…the more you are aligned with your highest vision. Yes and another perk? It feels good!
After the storm, or change or adjustment or simple nod of acknowledgement…it feels good that you listened to yourself and went with the flow.
We are raised, at least many people I know…” to put up the good fight”, to “hang in there”…hey I have Venus in Aries myself with a Sun in Taurus, I am your rock and will fight in the trenches alongside people I love and people I work with. One thing I’ve learned as I’ve developed my intuition though…is that what my everyday personality ego “believes”, thinks it knows based on tangible evidence or what defines me needs to be trumped by my inner knowing.
The more I listen, the stronger my internal GPS gets, the better it gets, the more I let go. I know that I’m here to develop highest faith in the invisible and live and breathe it. Walking my talk is part of my soul agreement-integrity & transparency.
Many people come to psychics or intuitives to get “answers” and some answers are available and very inspiring. Patterns and unearthed shadows, reflected and validating impressions of what & who you are come to the fore. When you see a good one you are inspired and feel back on track...you've had the truth reflected back to you and you feel you can move forward.
Ultimately though, it’s a journey, it’s a process and really…its Earth School. Ya can’t bypass class cuz you can read energy or tarot cards. You can surely align yourself with a greater spiritual flow that allows for your most fulfilling growth if you listen to the life supporting messages that are available!
I love this quote by Caroline Myss, NYT bestseller & Medical Intuitive:
"Intuition is neither the ability to engage prophecy nor a means of avoiding financial loss or painful relationships. It is actually the ability to use energy data to make decisions in the immediate moment."
As a professional intuitive and intuition coach I’ve learned so much in my own life and reading others has helped me realize that we are more alike than different. The human condition is universal. I also realize how intuitive we all actually are. Many of my clients feel, hear, sense and see information but often don't know what to do with it. I understand that sense of, " what do I do with this?"
While I grew up in lovely Forest Hills visiting my neighborhood's reform Temples, my family is Argentinean and Catholic. While spirits and intuition were accepted...there was usually a warning with developing it. The dark side with all its covert implications lurked near and no one wanted to invite unwanted attention: from the living or the dead. Frankly,from the stories I heard...you didn't know which would be worse!
While I knew that paternal Abuela wrote messages from the other side & later found out my maternal Abuelo had a guide...no one said," hey Nena, have a seat. I'm going to train you."
I was lucky my mom taught me to cleanse and release "stuff" that I had picked up from others. I just knew there was too much going on in "the world behind our eyes" as Caroline Myss explains it. I knew that I wanted answers and a way to understand our unseen realities. I can count on both hands the times I ignored my inner ding and lived to tell some wretched tales. Most of my life has become about learning to understand, connect and use this amazing gift we all have to one degree or another.
Don’t turn away from your inner senses because it may cause too much trouble, don’t ignore persistent messages. In the end, ignoring your signs & messages may cause you more trouble than you know…but then again, it may have been part of your educational journey.
All of our fears and turning away from ourselves usually leads us to the undeniable truth anyway! You can run...but you can't hide! All jesting aside, pay attention to the celestial nods and gut feelings you ignored and then as a testing paradigm...try following your gut next time. How does it feel? How did the situation go? Things that make you go,"Hmmm..."
I learned from every instance when I didn’t listen, that’s what helped me become a really great listener now. My failure to listen has led me to surrender and to accept that what I feel/see/hear and know is very real. Even if no one else validates my impressions, through trial and error I have grown to see the wisdom and the alignment it brings to my life.
While many seek psychic and spiritual development (which btw, are not one and the same) as a form of control, to me it has become the art of surrender. I learned techniques and tools but in the end...I still hang off the edge and jump. I am comfortable there and I know that I am safe. When Heaven speaks, I listen, I am thankful, I jump and I soar!
Amen! Ache! A-Ho, So it is, so shall it be!
What they are saying about my work:
"Vanessa's intuition intensive workshops have truly been a blessing for me in all aspects of my life. She taught me how to tap into, access and most importantly trust my intuition with her warmth, compassion, wisdom, and humor! Her guided meditation and visualization exercises have been an invaluable tool that I have carried over into my daily life. Now, I walk taller and lighter in the world with confidence in the decisions and choices that I am making in my personal and professional life. Vanessa is a dynamic beacon and I am truly shining because of her grace and guidance!"-Caralin, teacher
"I know I’m in the best place with the most supportive of people. I feel safe, I sleep peacefully, I can breathe in large crowds, I can differentiate my emotions from those that don't belong to me. I understand myself more than ever while developing new gifts in the process.Thank you Vanessa for your teachings, your friendship, and your spirit."- Sincerely, Lisa Marie
" I've met many readers in the past, but none of them are like Vanessa! she is a wonder spiritual guide and healer. I've been to her 4 times, and every time she's given me more insight into how my past, has shaped my present and what role it will play in future. However, the most importantly gift that Vanessa has given me is that she's been able to help me heal. On one visit she opened my mind to the process hypnotism. Let me begin by saying that I was not open at all to this, but after some "very gentle" persuasion I decided to do. I'm so happy we did it because my life has completely changed because of it. Since that day I don't have a chip on my shoulder, I'm not angry, and I've somehow learned to move forward. I consider Vanessa not only part of my new circle of strong women council, but also I consider her a friend - a title I don't give to everyone."-S.Roberts, Marketing Coordinator
