“I believe in intuitions and inspirations. I sometimes feel that I am right. I do not know that I am.” ~ Albert Einstein
Having intuition doesn’t involve having psychic powers or having to visualize white lights coming out of our heads. These common “new age” style techniques are not at all necessary to develop our intuition. In some cases, these techniques further impair our capacity to be intuitive simply because it can add more clutter into our minds.
Developing your intuition is not about adding more or wanting more, it’s about throwing things out and wanting less – when we have cultivated a healthy space within, we can hear, see and feel our intuition more clearly. The aim of this book is to help you connect more readily and easily with your intuition.
We all have the capacity for intuitive insight; in fact, intuition is already within us – whether we are aware of it or not. As we move into adulthood, our sense of self, created by the conceptual mind, often becomes our primary source of information.
This overemphasis on the conceptual mind for information dampens out our ability to hear or feel these subtler realities and perceptions occurring within us. The inability to access our intuition is primarily caused by the excess of clutter
in our minds and in our lifestyles.
This book will help you to understand what intuition is and why it is an important part of our lives. It will outline some very simple and progressive steps to take in order to de-clutter the mind so that you can become more aware and sensitive to your intuitive abilities.
To re-connect with these subtler perceptions and truths this book will go into detail about five very simple and practical steps to evelop your intuition.
They are progressive steps, therefore it is advised that you work on them in succession giving each step a week or so before adding in the next practice. Everyone is different, however, so some people will pick it up easier than others.
Its important not to compare you progress with others, just keep working on it for yourself.
The five steps are:
1. Clear out the clutter
2. Connect with your body
3. Drop any sense of urgency
4. Listen to your body
5. Be willing to follow it into the unknown
As well as providing 5 very practical methods to develop your intuition I go into debunking some common myths about intuition. I will also provide some hints and tips if you’re having trouble connecting with your intuition at various times and may become confused as to which path to take.
What Is Intuition?
Intuition is simply a deep knowing or feeling that compels spontaneous action. A deep knowing that draws you somewhere or rovides you with insight or understanding and appears to have no identifiable cause.
Intuition does not come from the mind. Intuition is often experienced as a feeling or sensation throughout the body. Intuition can also be experienced through our other sensors like vision, hearing, taste, touch, smell and also through our dreams.
Sometimes it can even come up as a thought form – yet this is not a thought that comes from the mind. Some people can be more sensitive in one sense than another and may receive their intuition mainly from one primary source such as hearing or feeling.
If you do find that you often receive messages from one primary source, do not become depended on that as your only source. Allow yourself to be open and receptive via all your senses.
Intuition can be experienced as:
– a gut feeling
– a feeling like your body wants to move in a certain direction
– a flash of an image in the mind
– a flash of a thought
– déjà vu
– a dream
– a voice
– a smell that reminds you of something
– a taste that reminds you of something
– like something is holding your hand or patting you on the shoulder
– just a feeling of knowing that something is so
– an unexplainable sense of confidence
– tingles up the back of the spine
– a sense of immense relaxation that all is taken care of “All great men and women are gifted with intuition. They know without reasoning or analysis, what they need to know.” ~ Alexis Carrel
The Guidance Principle
The guidance principle stems from the notion that there is a unifying thread of intelligence that weaves its way through all things. This unifying thread of intelligence is often referred to as the “field”. The field connects all things and plays a major role in the movement and interplay of all phenomenon in the universe.
You can visualize it as a giant electro magnetic field that dances through space initiating movement and interaction between all things. This giant electro magnetic field is always in movement and guiding us in some direction whether we are aware of it or not. It essentially governs the universe and acts to support all things towards their fullest realization through the constant process of creative movement and evolution.
This invisible force is always present in our lives, and is always moving in a way that is guiding us towards the next part of our evolutionary process. I call this movement “the guidance principle” because it is always guiding us toward our higher potential.
If we are aware of the interconnection of all things in this dance of life, then we have the capacity to deepen our relationship with the universe. We can learn to move in harmony with the guidance principle to enhance out personal growth and reach our highest potential. However, we also have the capacity to ignore it or resist this movement, which only brings us much anxiety and inner tension. The guidance principle is always working upon us, we can choose to acknowledge it, and go with it or resist its pull. It’s like a pebble in a stream. The stream is always flowing in one direction; the pebble has the force of the water always upon it, guiding it to go further downstream. The pebble can resist only for so long before it will be nudged and nudged downstream. Resisting mainly comes in the form of thinking that “I am in control” and nothing else.
So often the guidance principle is drawing us in some direction but we dig our heels in and say, “No, I want it this way” and so we resist it. It pulls at us regardless and because of our resistance, we create so much tension inside. The guidance principle does not falter and simply goes about re-organizing itself so it can continue to dance. Because there is resistance to evolve in accordance with the field, it will return continuously and express itself in a variety of ways to encourage and support the process of letting go of the resistance previously upheld.
No matter how many times you resist it, it will never falter or stop. Its power is so great that eventually, whether in this lifetime or another, whether with conscious consent or not, a breakthrough will be made and the resistance will be dissolved.
We have the ability to choose a path of letting go of resistance and allowing our lives to be guided and shaped by this larger force, or we can dig our heels in and resist. Which do you choose?
Why are we talking about the field and the guidance principle anyway? The field is yet another way to explain what intuition is and where it comes from. Intuition comes directly from the field itself and is expressed as the guidance principle. The messages we receive via our intuition is the guidance principal acting out to show us how to flow with the movement of the field.
Following these messages from the guidance principle can bring up emotions of fear or anxiety because we will be stepping into unfamiliar territory. Over time, however, and as you learn to trust it, fear and anxiety are soon replaced with confidence, trust and adventure. You will soon discover that no harm can come from following your intuition because it is only leading you to where no harm can come.
“Don’t try to comprehend it with your mind. You mind is very limited. Use your intuition.” ~ Madeleine L’Engle
Why Develop Intuition?
When you learn to follow your intuition, your true life’s work becomes clearer and more obvious to you. The very act of following and living your true life’s work
brings real joy into your life and allows your heart to sing. Other benefits of a developed intuition include miracle-type events that can occur on a regular basis.
– discovering books or articles relevant to you at the perfect time,
– meeting strangers who provide new insight and new opportunities in life,
– having breakthrough moments in realization and understanding,
– vivid dreams,
– discovering a shortcut on your way to work,
– the curing of sickness and disease with little effort,
– feeling a connection with something bigger than oneself,
– seeing a puzzle or a problem in a new way,
– rapid change and personal growth
– and the list goes on..
Initially, it appears that these remarkable occurrences will be few and far between.
As you continue to develop your intuitive abilities and trust in them, remarkable occurrences often occur on a daily basis.
There even comes a point when you look back on events in your life that you will see that this intuitive force was playing its role even in those moments when it seemed like you weren’t being intuitive. Which leads to the realization that intuition is always there, whether we are aware of it or not. It just makes it a whole lot more enjoyable and fun when you are aware of it.
What you also notice is that these occurrences do not only act to benefit oneself, they also benefit others. It feels like it was meant to be, for a variety of reasons. If you stop and think about the occurrence and try to work out its impact on a
grander scale it becomes mind blowing, so often it is best just to go, “Wow, that was incredible! Time to move on.”
Because intuition is always present and guiding us on some level, conscious or unconscious, we have the capacity to connect with it and flow with it. Connecting with it and learning to flow with it tends to speed up the process of change and growth. Our lives can be enhanced for the better. Greater insights dawn, deeper relationships are made, healthier lifestyles and habits form, careers take off and joy flows more readily and easily.
If, however, we do not choose to connect with this force, we can impair our own capacity to grow and evolve as beings. Bad habits stick, we have shallow and
unsupportive relationships, careers never really take off, depression and anxiety haunt us, we get sick easily, alcohol and drugs may become a big part of our lives, weight gains quickly, health problems continuously arise and the list goes on.
The intuitive force has always been guiding these people from the start, yet for some reason or another, it’s likely that they have lost the capacity to connect with their intuition. The best thing we can do for these people is to live a life worthy of example.
Myths About Intuition
1. Intuition is about having psychic powers
I have noticed that a lot of books and articles having to do with intuition tend to be strongly associated with the new age movement. They are always talking about having psychic abilities which involve seeing into the future or giving a reading to a friend or family member.
To me, this is simply not true and not what intuition is about.
Psychic abilities are something related to intuition but are not the intuition that I discuss in this book.
Intuition is not about seeing into the future or the past (which don’t really exist) it’s about being fully present and honoring the feelings and messages you get in the present from the guidance principle itself. You don’t need to be psychic, you just need to be true.
2. To develop your intuition, you have to visualize lights and all sorts of things in your mind
Intuition comes from cleaning out all the imaginations, fantasies and clutter in the mind – not adding more to it. While having wondrous and beautiful images in the mind sounds pleasant and may be pleasant to those people doing it for a few minutes, it just adds more content to the mind to chew on. A better way to go about it, I have found is, to simply let all that stuff go, don’t “try” and do anything, don’t “try” and be intuitive or receive messages. When you don’t try things will happen of their own accord. Allow there to be space inside so that you can hear the messages clearly. Don’t clutter!
3. Intuition requires you to focus intensely on the third eye (between the eyebrows)
If intuition had a physical location then between the eyebrows would be it. But this does not mean you have to focus there to receive intuitive messages. The very process of getting your mind and body in a receptive state is enough for the third eye to be automatically active of its own accord. You don’t have to do anything special or undertake some mystical technique for the third eye to become active.
Don’t worry about it or get caught up with the third eye teachings. It is more important to practice de-cluttering your mind so that space can be cultivated within. This is discussed in more detail in the next chapter.
4. Having intuition means that my life will become easy and no more hard work will be required
Having the ability to be intuitive can easily be over-glorified in the way that many people think that life will then become easy. Insight comes when it comes, but for insight to be fully realized there may be many years of hard work ahead. It’s easy to have a vision of something grand and life-changing but it’s another thing to make it
real. Hard work, focus and perseverance will still be required to establish any real and lasting change. Sitting around talking about an intuitive insight or an idea for years without acting upon it is not true insight.
1. Clear Out The Clutter
The primary reason for the lack of connection with intuition is to do with having too much clutter in our minds and in our lifestyles. We hold onto too many ideas, opinions, judgments and all sorts of fancy and useless knowledge and information. Our lives are also often cluttered up with large amounts of non-essential items and decorations.
This clutter simply fogs up the lens of perception, it sticks buds in our ears so we can’t hear, it fills our lives with so much junk, that we use our energy on simply trying to organize and manage it. We must learn to continuously and ruthlessly throw out the non-essentials – both in mind and in our physical
world. Throwing out this clutter helps us to cultivate the space within and allows us to be more receptive and open to our intuition.
The mind is a useful tool, but it is not who we are and it is not our friend, initially, anyway. The problem comes because we over-identify with the thoughts in our heads. We tend to think that what I think, I am. Therefore, we are always trying to think a certain way or “be positive” all of the time. We strain and put in so much effort to get rid of those “negative thoughts”. This is not the way out of it – it’s a vicious loop. It does not matter whether you have “positive” or “negative” thoughts pass through, it only matters how much power you give them.
For example, if you have a “negative” thought about your boss at work. When you really listen to that thought, you follow it; you give it your attention and energy. That initial thought then is fed with more power and will turn into more negative thoughts about your boss. Then the thoughts will continue to flow, moving onto your whole work situation. Soon you will be thinking about how you don’t like your colleagues, the building you work in, the traffic on the way to work, the desk you have, the computer you work on and so on and so on.
If you just stop for a moment and go, “Hold on, are any of these thoughts real for me right now? Are they relevant to me right now?” Or, you could be
2. Connect With Your Body
Our nervous systems are electrical systems that are plugged directly into the electrical system of the universe (the field). Our nervous systems can receive messages from the field itself and are experienced as subtle sensations throughout the body. Therefore, if we can learn to connect with and sense the subtle sensations running throughout our bodies, we can read and sense our intuition more clearly.
One of the easiest ways to gain clearer access to these subtler sensations is to learn to connect with your body.
Sense your heart beating, your legs, and your breath. Notice how it manages itself without any conscious input or effort? There is an intelligence governing all of life and no human mind is required to keep it going.
How to connect with the body in a few simple steps but first, acknowledging that we have already begun to throw out the clutter and reduce the identification with mind chatter and thoughts.
1. To begin, it’s best to close the eyes. (It is possible to can do this with the eyes open when you practice this often.)
2. Take a few breaths to settle yourself down. Let thoughts come and go. Watch yourself breathing and relaxing your body with each breath.
3. Sit for at least 10 minutes initially to let things calm down. Let thoughts come and go as you see them, let your breath stabilize. Nothing to actually do except check that you’re not following thoughts for too long as they arise. Just breathe out and let them go, one after the other.
4. After a good 10 minutes or so, things will be a lot less turbulent so now is a good time to connect with the body. Begin by sensing your head…
5. The right side of your skull;
6. The left side of your skull;
7. Your forehead;
8. Your right eye, right cheek, mouth, and chin;
9. Your left eye, left cheek, mouth, and chin;
10. The right side of your neck, top of your right shoulder;
11. Your right upper arm, right lower arm, right hand, right palm, and fingers;
12. The left side of your neck, top of your left shoulder;
13. Your left upper arm, left lower arm, left hand, left palm, and fingers;
14. The front of your throat;
15. The right side of your chest, left side of your chest;
16. Your right upper belly, right middle belly, right lower belly;
17. Your left upper belly, right middle belly, right lower belly;
18. The middle of your upper belly, belly button, lower belly;
19. Your right shoulder, back of your right shoulder;
20. Your left shoulder, back of your left shoulder;
21. The right side of your middle back, right side of your lower back, right hip;
22. The left side of your middle back, left side of your lower back, left hip;
23. Your right buttocks, left buttocks;
24. Your groin;
25. Your right upper leg, right knee, right lower leg, right foot, and toes;
26. Your left upper leg, left knee, left lower leg, left foot, and toes.
That counts as one round. Sometimes one round can be enough to help you to feel much more grounded and connected to your body. Doing one round can take anywhere between two to five minutes.
Move swiftly so that you don’t get distracted and lose yourself in other thoughts. When you get really proficient at it you can do it when sitting on the bus, plane or just sitting on the couch at home. If you have the focus, try doing at least three rounds in one sitting and notice how powerful the effects can become.
It’s a simple practice and a very powerful one. I personally have found that body scanning is the most powerful and beneficial technique used in meditation, much more so than visualizations.
3. Drop Any Sense Of Urgency
After practicing the process of connecting and listening to your body for some time, it will be a lot easier to recognize if you’re in a state of urgency.
Urgency is when there is the constant feeling or thought that “I must get this” or “I must get that” or “I need to get home” or “I need to get this done,” or I “need to understand” or “I really want to finish this” etc. Usually, any self talk that has want, need or must involved is likely to generate a sense of urgency in your body and mind.
This sense of urgency keeps us from being able to stop and “smell the flowers”, so to speak. Being able to stop and smell the flowers means to be able to see and sense the whole picture rather than being locked down into a limited tunnel vision.
When we can sense the whole picture, we are open and receptive to whatever signals or messages may present itself in each moment. In every moment, I believe some kind of message or signal is being presented for greater insight and understanding. Most of us just can’t sense it because we have our tunnel vision switched on due to our state of urgency.
Sure, sometimes the sense of urgency may be required to complete a task or reach a deadline, but most of the time we really don’t require this sense of urgency. We get so used to be in “urgent mode” that we come to feel like being in urgent mode is the normal way to be in this world. This is because most humans in this world regularly reflect this state of urgency back to us. Unfortunately, most human are frivolously running about in this world in a state of anxiety and urgency. You don’t have to do the same… try dropping it and notice how much more relaxing, pleasant and joyful the simplest things become.
How to drop any sense of urgency:
1. Check yourself. Conduct a quick observation of your body. Check your thinking… am I in a state of urgency?
2. If yes, then simply drop it… slow your movements down, breathe out the sense of urgency and let go. Keep doing your task or activity that you are doing without the urgency.
3. Notice how much easier and more peaceful the activity or task has become.
4. Keep in that state as long as possible. Do not get thrown out of it by looking at a clock or following some thought that makes you anxious.
Simple. Do this at least once a day, ongoing. The more you practice it, the easier it will become to drop it.
Eventually, this state of being out of urgency will become the norm and other people will probably notice how much more relaxed and peaceful and pleasant you are to be around.
“Intuition is the clear conception of the whole at once.”
~ Johann Lavater
4. Follow Your Body
After some time of learning to connect and feel your body, it becomes pretty easy to be able to listen to the body and its signals more clearly. I must mention here, that not all messages that come from the body are necessarily your intuition. Many massages will be coming up as behaviours of resistance, like fear, anxiety and lethargy.
These messages and behaviours come up due to past conditioning and if listened to and followed, will only re-affirm the behavior. In many cases, if a slight fear or anxiety arises from the belly and chest area, because it is something that is new to you, then it’s probably a good idea to do it anyway to break down the limiting behavior. If, however, the feeling is “something doesn’t feel right” where every part of your body feels this way, this is a sign not to go ahead.
Intuition, in this way, is not an exact science and often it is circumstantial or more dependent on the individual. However, in saying that, learning to listen to your body will enhance the overall capacity to receive the messages from your intuition because we train ourselves not only to listen to our bodies, but also to listen to the present moment more fully.
Many signals that come from the body are stress signs telling us to avoid something. When we are not able to hear these messages clearly, many of us will do it anyway. What happens if we continue to override these stress signals is eventually we will get some strange sickness or illness. In many cases, we create our own sickness because we are resisting our calling. When we make ourselves sick in this way, something needs to change. We need to listen to our bodies more effectively if we want to heal and live a better quality of life.
Modern day science focuses largely on the brain as our primary source of nervous system activity. What has largely been ignored and left unexplored is the vast neural network that exists in the gastrointenstinal tract or the gut. It has also been discovered that 95% of serotonin (one of the main neurotransmitters involved in feeling happy) are produced in the gut, not the brain, giving a whole new understanding to the term “follow your gut”.
Some ways to effectively listen to your body:
1. Feel into your legs
Where do they want to go? Are they feeling energized or heavy? If they are energized it’s a sure sign to go somewhere, to walk somewhere. Let your legs take you to where they want to go. As you walk, find a pace that keeps your legs relaxed and flowing. For me personally, I have found this pace is 99% slower than everyone else who may be around me. If you’re walking at full pace, trying to “get somewhere” you’re letting your head take over.
When walking in this relaxed state, let the pelvis and legs come forward (for many people, it may help to draw the head and shoulders back a little). You may be walking slowly, but you can walk for a long time without tiring (it’s the case of the tortoise is faster than the hare). When you find the “right” pace for you, just keep checking in with your legs by moving your awareness through them just to see how they are going and where it is they want to go.
Sometimes if I come to a crossroads I ask my legs, where do you want to go? And I let them take me. This is most often also connected to a visual cue – I will talk more about this when we get to the head and eyes. Because the legs are energetically the furthest away from the head and mind and are connected to earth directly, they are the best place to put your awareness to get yourself out of the mind as quickly as possible.
2. Listening to the belly, heart and chest
Feel into your belly and chest area. Are you tensing them unnecessarily? How is your breathing? Is it shallow or full and relaxed? Just take a moment, maybe sit down and allow your heart space, belly and breathing to soften and relax. Allow this space to release. Stay here for a good minute or to until you can really feel your heart, lungs and belly soften, then you can get up and continue with whatever it was you were doing. Keep checking in with this area to see if you’re tensing up again, if so, take a step back and repeat. If the activity you are engaging in has you continuously returning to a tense state, then it’s probably a good idea to step away from it completely for some time and do something else. Ideally, establish this soft space and go for a walk in a local park while continuing to maintain this softened space. Notice how it makes you feel; you may notice people respond to you in a pleasant way, also.
3. Face and eyes
Sense your facial muscles. Sense the right side of your face and then the left side. Do they feel different in any way? If one side feels tenser, see if you can relax it enough so it feels the same as the more relaxed side. Soften your eyes’ gaze, let your eyelids relax. Get the sense that you are able to see everything at once in your vision field rather than one object at a time. When looking at the natural world, it is easy to see that it appears all as
Learn to just watch things, observe with the eyes without judgment from the mind. Sit back, soften the eyes’ gaze, take a breath and just observe the world for just a few moments. This can bring about a great sense of peace and space inside.
I have found that intuition is experienced on the front of the body. This is because intuition fees like it’s pulling you forward into something and therefore, the energy and feelings on the back of the body aren’t so receptive. One obvious sign, however, that is a sure sign of something triggering a higher self is when you get tingles up your spine and up the back of the neck. These are sure signs that inspiration from a higher place is running through your system. Everyone knows what this feels like and everybody knows it has intense power in it. So whenever this
is experienced, enjoy it and simply let it pass through you and bask in its power.
5. Be Open and Willing To Follow It Into The Unknown
If you’re listening and feeling with your intuition, you can never be lead into danger or lead astray because intuition is always working with you and for you. Caution is healthy and useful but worry, fear and doubt only serve to hinder the intuitive process. Train yourself to pass through these hindrances and overcome their attempt to put limitations upon you.
Listening to your intuition is not the hard part, it’s the following it through with your actions and words that can bring up the fear of the unknown. At first, it may appear daunting or scary because it may be unfamiliar to you. It may also trigger behavior in you that is not of your usual behavior. But, if you continue to practice and follow it through with your actions, over time it becomes less and less daunting and more and more easy to do.
Any change in behavior, is likely to be a healthier and more supportive behavior trait coming up to the surface.
Your actions will be seen as helpful or supportive to others and your health and sense of wellbeing will gradually increase as you become more established in following your intuition. It actually becomes quite a fun and exciting process to see unfold. You will also come to see that you are protected and supported in this process if you are truly connected to and listening to your intuition.
Your path will be unique in its form and manifestation. Meaning that nobody will have the same looking path as yours. Therefore, no one can take you down his or her path and similarly you cannot lead somebody else down yours. All we can do is simply inspire others to listen and develop their intuition by listening and following ours.
Courage and a sense of faith are required to follow your intuition into the unknown. Courage comes from not doubting yourself and not doubting the universe in its pursuit to support you on your journey. At some point on our life journey, we must muster our courage and be willing to step up if we really want to initiate change.
Change is not always comfortable or easy, resistance and turmoil are the initial signs of change. Resistance and turmoil arise when we challenge any of our comfort zones and current behaviors. Allow the discipline of perseverance to help break down any resistances to change. Faith is a worthy ally and one that can bring a lot of extra power into play. Faith comes from having confidence in the universal force that guides us and having confidence in ourselves that we are more then capable.
Excess worry, fear and self-doubt will only lead you astray and into more anxiety. If you are lead into danger or into an unpleasant experience, it is more likely that you were probably listening to your head more than your intuition.
It’s not all bad because we have the capacity to reflect, learn and adjust our behaviours without much effort.
Often, just becoming aware of things is enough for the re-contextualization to occur by itself. If, however, we lack the ability or capacity to even reflect or bring awareness to our helpful or hazardous behaviours, it’s unlikely they will change anytime soon and the same circumstances will arise until we can shinereflective awareness onto it.
“You must train your intuition – you must trust the small voice inside you which tells you exactly what to say, what to decide.”
~ Ingrid Bergman
Extra Hints and Tips
1. If you find yourself unsure or confused about which direction to take (walking, driving, cycling etc) then look for the path or direction that has the most light. One path will be decorated with more natural light than the others, it may also be decorated with flowers or elegant tree structures. Whatever direction offers these gifts, follow that path.
2. If you can’t connect or can’t find the right spot to be – just sit and wait it out.
Sometimes we can try to hard to “get it” and this actually impedes the process. When you find yourself in such a conundrum, just take a seat somewhere comfortable (park bench, on the grass, under a tree, on the couch without the TV on) and just wait it out. Nature will call you to move at some point. Just sit back, relax your body, let your breathing relax and just wait. Don’t go looking for something to fill the space up; e.g., dig into your smartphone or book or whatever it may be. Just sit, even lay back and close your eyes for a while. Let your thoughts go and just relax into it.
Let yourself just be there. Maybe the intuition was actually telling you just to chill out for a moment and rest instead of running around looking for something. So, just sit and wait it out. How long can you sit there for? Eventually something will come along that will move you on (e.g., needing to go to the bathroom, drink some water, or the sun starts to cook you, etc.) or it will become obvious when it’s time to get up and move on with a
little more groundedness and clarity.
3. Let it go for now – it’s not ready, you cannot force it
This is a follow-up on the last hint. You can’t force intuition or insight to come; it will come when it’s ready. If you’re having trouble “getting it” or connecting then just let it go. Let the whole idea of intuition go.
4. If it doesn’t feel like you have been able to connect with your intuition for some time, don’t worry. Often we can go through patches of massive amounts of intuitive messages coming through and then periods where nothing comes through for some time. During these dry spell periods just keep focusing on the de-cluttering process and dropping the sense of urgency in your daily life.
5. If you have lots of projects going on in your life, try cutting down to just one or two. Prioritize.
Keep things simple and you will be more effective and more penetrating. If we have a lot of projects going on, we may be receiving intuitive messages, but may be confused as to which project it relates to.
