Intuition. Sometimes loud and other times quiet. Forceful or subtle, called upon or coming forward. Sensory, auditory, visual or all together. How does your intuition exist within you? Important to know and, as you become curious about it, you become curious about yourself. That is a gift and the first step towards reclaiming your right to live a life meant for you.
I hardly ever ask for messages, ask questions or call upon my intuition. I have developed a deep trust that when it matters it will speak to me and show me the way. It usually speaks in single words or an image would find its way to my awareness. It is usually clear, sharp and precise.
In my magic practice it is no different. When I am out in nature and I have an idea of what’s happening within me that day or have done for sometime I might get an indication of something that needs doing. Spell work for me is rare and always based on intuitive messages. I don’t do things any other way these days. I like that ‘flash of inspiration’ shape and form it often takes. When the invitation comes or rather ‘this needs doing’ it is unquestionable and I get to work.
Often it is either a clear ‘yes’ or a ‘no’ before I even ask a question, which I rarely have to do.
When a spell is brewing via intuition I am called to a particular place at a certain time and I am showed the tools, which I need specifically for that spell. All I have to do is go and be open to what unfolds around me. It can be as simple as coming upon a stone or a branch or an image in the sky or a face on a tree. It can be a feeling, which to me is important. I need to have the feeling. It is hard to describe, but generally it must feel so right that it fills me with immense content and fulfilment. It is like when you really enjoy your work, for example, whatever that is, it is a feeling of doing something that feels important and right. It is full of meaning and powerful intention and there’s always a bit of love mixed into it. We all know what that feels like. In fact many spells come out of ‘love’ vibration or something linked to that.
These days I am being told to wait, to stay put, to be silent and invisible. I follow. It just feels right. We are called to pause in doing and speaking in general now more than ever and, however alien this might feel to you, this anomaly in collective behaviour is the exact magic that needs to build up more in order to manifest a bigger change.
Listen to what your body tells you. Pay attention to your thoughts and spend more time feeling. These are the elements collectively that will bring you closer to your inner knowing, your intuitive wisdom. Reclaim that gift that’s always been yours and see if your life takes a different turn towards what you always wanted.
