It can be very comforting to know that all answers to your life issues can be found within. If you learn to trust your inner guidance or psychic abilities, life becomes much easier - less stressful. Too often however, you might find it easier to be influenced by others (society, family, or friends), rather than to trust what you feel or know to be “true” and “right” for you. Keep in mind that what society, family, or friends feel is best for you might not be best for you at all. Your inner guidance originates from Spirit. It is composed of the following senses:
Clairvoyance - the ability to see things that exist in Spirit.
Clairaudience - the ability to hear vibrations and thoughts in Spirit.
Clairsentience - the ability to feel energies in Spirit.
Intuition - a gut feeling that tells you if something is right for you or not.
Although there are more senses, these are the most common types of psychic abilities or psychic powers and if you develop them, you can gain great insight into your life path. Using these skills will give you information about your life path from a higher perspective. Every single person on the planet has these inner gifts. That means you have these inner gifts as well. We are all special in that way.
So if we all have these special gifts, why is it that so many choose to ignore or suppress the spiritual connection? One reason might be that inner guidance is not logical and these skills cannot be scientifically explained. It is easier to accept what is logical or “right in front of your eyes” rather than trust a feeling, a vision, or a voice that comes from Spirit.
Another reason why you might ignore or suppress your inner guidance is that there is a certain amount of fear associated with delving into the unknown. The fear level is different in each person. Any new experience can make you afraid, but once you repeat the experience many times, the fear disappears. It’s a good idea to remember this as you nurture your abilities.
Instead of suppressing or ignoring your inner guidance, you should be trying to develop these skills. You need to nurture these sensitivities and understand how to take care of them just as you take care of your physical self. In the same way that you feed your physical body, experience positive activity and rest your physical body, you must feed, experience positive activity and rest your spiritual self.
Feeding, experiencing positive activity and resting of the spiritual body are a bit different from what you do to maintain your physical body. Feeding your spiritual body is done through personal growth (life challenges) and helping people.. Positive activity in Spirit is done through building a relationship with that particular reality which includes trusting what you feel or know to be true (your intuition). In Spirit, you meditate to refresh the spiritual self.
When you can learn to trust your inner guidance, you will attain a state of inner peace. You will live your life based on what you are supposed to do as opposed to doing what others think is right for you.
More and more people are starting to develop and nurture their psychic abilities or inner guidance. It is the next step in the evolution of humanity.
