Although my blog turned 1 on July 17th, I only started doing intuitive readings in early October 2010 after taking Slade Roberson’s Automatic Intuition course. The story of how I was drawn to take that class hasn’t yet been written. But you can read my review of the course.

Over the past year I’ve met incredible people I’ve done intuitive readings for – each with a unique story and every single one of them has taught me something.  I’ve also been contacted by some weirdos, but that’s for a whole ‘nother post.

While it’s true that I’ve always been an empath, I haven’t always been a skilled empath, and I haven’t always known how to do intuitive readings. My intuitive skills developed over the course of time rather than having them in full power at birth.  Which, by the way, is still ongoing – my growth and skills change all of the time. We’re never really done learning.

I believe that we are all intuitive – every last one of us – and it’s just a matter of having the desire and drive to develop it. Some of us do, some of us don’t.

If you’re trying to develop your intuition,  these points are worth keeping in mind: 

  • Just like our fingerprints, everyone has a unique signature for higher sense perception. There is no higher sense that is “better than” another. Just because someone can see angels/spirit guides and I can hear them doesn’t mean I’m right and she’s wrong. It just means we get information in different ways.
  • You’ve got to “trust what you get” – which is what my friend Lisa from Practically Intuitive always says. And guess what? She’s right! Quite often I’ll get information about someone or something and think, “Am I making this up?!” I’ve learned to share it anyway  – those things that I usually think I’m “making up” are often just what the other person needed to hear.
  • Developing your interpretation skills takes time. Because Spirit so often talks to us in symbols, you need to know yourself well, know how you get the information and how you process it. Be patient with yourself. This sort of thing usually isn’t learned overnight. I’m still learning – and I hope I will be until I draw my last breath.
  • Watch out for the mind/ego trying to insert its viewpoint and tell you that you/your intuition/your guides are wrong, wrong, wrong. The ego loves playing mind games and loves making us doubt ourselves.
  • You don’t have to be right 100% of the time. No psychic knows everything. Intuitive people are here at “earth school” too. And if we knew everything, we wouldn’t need to be.  Yeah, it sucks when someone tells you that you got something wrong. But, sometimes people come back and say something like, “What you said didn’t make sense at the time but later it suddenly dawned on me…” No one is always right – no matter what your husband/wife/partner/boss would like you to believe about themselves.
  • It’s easier to pick up intuitive information for others than for yourself. Ever hear this joke? Two psychics met on the sidewalk. The first psychic said to the second, “You’re fine, how am I?” I don’t know what my future holds – I’m not supposed to! That would take half the fun out of living, wouldn’t it? It’s so much easier for me to pick up information for someone else – I’m not as emotionally attached to the outcome and therefore know that what I get is what I get, and not just my hoping/wishing making stuff up.

Hi Lindsay,

You are so right, we are developing always. I love listening to intuitives talking and interviewing each other and the fact that we can share information and ideas freely. You don’t need to do this for very long to do a great job and to start connecting the dots when things repeat. It’s kind of like your own personal spiritual shorthand.

Lindsay November 17, 2011 at 11:48 am

I love listening to intuitives chat & interview each other, too! I am thinking of doing something similar on here – I’ll get in touch with you about that soon.

Lisa at Practically Intuitive November 17, 2011 at 12:41 pm

Thanks for the shout out, Linds! 🙂 Really good article – I especially like the point about everyone having their own signature for receiving guidance.

When I first began to notice that I “hear” information, I assumed everyone heard it. My friends disabused me of this notion (nicely!) and then I got it.

It’s such fun working with deeper perception because there IS always more to learn and room to grow. I love this work beyond measure. Truly.

*And I love you too! 🙂

Lindsay November 17, 2011 at 4:11 pm

You are SO SWEET! I just love you to bits. I like that you used the word “disabused”. I am going to try to remember to use that in a sentence. I love this work, too. So, so much. And I am always happy to share your link & your wisdom with others!

Justin | Personal Growth November 20, 2011 at 8:11 pm

Hi Lindsay,

I want to hear more about the weirdo’s that contacted you. 🙂

Learning to trust the information that you are getting is tough when the ego mind gets in the way. It is indeed a skill to coerce the ego mind to side-step for a while until the intuitive session is over.

Take Care…

Lindsay November 22, 2011 at 7:30 am

LOL I figured someone would mention wanting to hear more about the weirdos. I’d love to post an article but that might just be downright rude of me. We’ll see…if I can figure out a way to be diplomatic about it, I”ll post!

Lisa-Marie November 22, 2011 at 12:47 am

I love this piece! “My intuitive skills developed over the course of time rather than having them in full power at birth. Which, by the way, is still ongoing – my growth and skills change all of the time. We’re never really done learning.”

That is me in a nutshell. Everything is a process and growing process.

Lindsay November 22, 2011 at 7:30 am

Thanks! Glad you like it & can identify. 🙂 You’re right: everything is a process. Who of us has been born “all-knowing”…and actually remembers it? lol Nice to see you commenting on here!

Patti Foy | Lightspirited Being November 23, 2011 at 5:49 pm

Oh, thanks, your joke in that last point made me laugh out loud! Too perfect!

LOVE love love your new look, it’s beautiful! Calming and inviting. Way to go.

Happy Thanksgiving. Oh wait, are you Canadians grateful? (Just kidding. ;-))

Lindsay November 24, 2011 at 1:41 pm

Canadians are ungrateful sods! Juuuust kidding. We celebrated our Thanksgiving in October (gets colder sooner up North, so the harvest is earlier) but believe you me, I’m having a wild pity party for myself sitting here at work when I should be in PA being a glutton with my family!

I’m so glad you like the new look. I commissioned the help of a wonderful designer who did so much for the site. 🙂 If you ever need one, let me know – she rocks!

Sol | Some Insight Required November 27, 2011 at 10:07 pm

I wish I could find a designer to help me *is having a pity party*

Anypony…

I agree with everything you write. ESPECIALLY the ‘trust what you get’ part. Oh, and we shouldn’t modify the info either, I feel.

Lindsay November 29, 2011 at 4:52 pm

Yeah I agree with the not-modifying what we get, Sol. Sometimes the “mistake” or the rough, unpolished draft of what we’ve written is what the person needs to hear.

Btw – I paid my designer! That’s why she helped. 🙂

Kara November 29, 2011 at 2:32 pm

Lindsay,

Great article! You captured the most important points that other should know about intuitives. I think sometimes it’s hard for people to remember that intuitives are just like everyone else, learning as they live. I liked the intuitive joke – perfectly sums up how it works!

Kara

Lindsay November 29, 2011 at 4:54 pm

Thanks, Kara! Yup, I think sometimes it’s hard for people to realize that intuitives are people, too! lol I think sometimes people can get intimidated “Can she read my mind?!” or think we know EVERYTHING. Nope…no such luck!

Hot Lahore Girls For Dating Arre yyou looking for Desi
Girls for ultimate fun and entertainment? If she is
at yoour place, she will exdpect you to make the first move, and you should feel free to begin kissing her when yyou are ready.
Free cell phone dating services allow phone calls
to be made between twoo participants. Don’t let this happen to you.
Makke your conversation humorous! So, how do you telll whether a
partner is deceitful? Such agencies keep a database of numbers, and
have a provision for many phone lines.

Women are often left wondering how they should handle phone calls with the
mann they are involved with. Connection means to show her that you and hher have something in common. If your love interest finds that ouut one fine day, you’ll be in a
fix! Some see marriage as the ultimate goal, while others just want to expand their social circle andd go on some fun dates.
But much as some of the success storiees on this website make
uss see how easy it is to find love, it doesnt work that way for everyone.
The singles are few steps away from getting in touch with the other singles.
As such, it behoves you to be specific about what
you’re looking for.

Many agencies are offering free phone dating services.

That way is ssetting upp a web account through the provider.
If you make the mistake of calling too frequently, at the wrong time or before he’s ready to hear from you,
you can actually turn him off. Let him do the calling in this case.
You simply have to be yourself and showcase what you are all about.
Just look around you: First, they are oon datting websites or inn onlijne flirt communities.

It is easdy to mset girls on Facebook, and it is eady to meet girls on MySpace,
but you have to know how to flirt and escalate things.
Mosst women would give anything to know what their men are thinking.

Many guyhs get dismayed at the competition, which
is most of the time 5-10 to one. Alll these lwad to the fact that dating and finding someone great
to date is not easy for everyone. Typically when you date an emotionally unavailasble person, all your
dates feel the same. Understandably, you don’t want your heart to bee involved too much when you’re dating someone, only
to realize the person is emotionally unavailable. Use only the
paid reverse phone search servicees if you would like to have the most accurate
data.

There are things that are in your control that will change the way
he seses you. She is employed to sedll drinks. 121 is an officially legalized and licensed phone service and
it is due to this reason that many people today exclusively
rely on the 121 phone sex. But with the technological advancement, the search has
also narrowed down. Then there’s the popullar online dating.

Meeting at a quiet place will help you get too know the person and allow
you to reach our comfort zone faster. Thiss is recommended if you nnot only suspect yor companion is messing around on you, but
doing so in your own house.

There is an option of free adult chat lines services used by thousands of callers; it iss the fastest, molst enjoyable and
easy way to meet new people and to get the information and services you need every day.

Whhen you’re ready to being using the service, simply find someone who you’re interested in through the database annd text or call the dedicated number to get in contact with them.
And after a week on Facebook or MySpace, a beautiful woman will have learned to spot and delete such messages in an instant.
You try to make the most of whatever little time you do get
together and… There aree no Western morals here, but is that good or bad?
Well, the problem iss this can quite easily boomerang on you.

Following are sokme phone dating ideas you can try out!
Try searching for thhe person from sidee to side any of the well-liked websotes
andd you might now eend up lucky. One off the best things about free phone dating services is that after a person becomes a member and creates a profile, the service provier takes care off the
remaining formalities. Substantial variety of single people and hopefuls exist around
online dating sites towns and also thee amoount goes on as nights passes.
In this method of dating, potential partners get connected or hooked up through mobile phones.
This is whhere the phone dating services come to be
of great help. By ust talking in the phone, you would not
only be able to make frriends but at the same time
you would also be able to meet that special black person in your
life. There are small gestures and hints in what a guy says and does, that a
girl needs to pick up on and decide whether to sit back reassured, or to head down the break-up path.

You might bbe pondering if you should look at participating in internet dating residrential areas.
However, before making any moves, you need to bbe iin a position of power first.
And isn’t that the most common way foor people to get
a girlfriend? Sometimes you just don’t feel like going out and reliving alll of the sasme drama
that you can find at tthe local gay bar. First, isn’t that kind of a weird question,
if you consider that he doesn’t know her yet? Dating Swedish men will therefore not be as hard as you
imagine.

As a Swediah man dating a woman from a different culture, you do not have
to suffer in silence, make it known that you are crippled with fear and make it light as you date.
So iif you also experience the same problem, yoou can make your spare time very pleasurable just by joining Latino adult chat lines or Hispanic adult chat lines or Spanish adult chat lines.
You need to pace yourself soo he believds that you have more to do than get back in contact with him.
Once you have completed the registration, you can create yokur own profile by
logging into the system. The best thing iss to laugh
about both your cultures. Not too long ago, online dating services continues to be common,
due to online dating sites currently have extend way upp
his or her primary internet dating protection. If a guy approaches a hot
girl by asking her how her weekend was, he’s actually trying to build a
connection.

If your man called and left you a voicemail, it’s best to wait at least oone hour to call him back.

This way he may bbe able to tell every time if the other man has lidd about
something or has een in trrouble with the law.
Pattaya is one of a kind, it’s a place that lives by its own rules and norms.
Surely, with all the world to pick from, that person ust be out there, right?
If you haven’t guessed it by now, you’re making your ex want you by not wanting him.
As I found out later, my dear young friend followed his typical careless pattern and went to some dude’s place in a questionable part of
town. A lot of people struggle at times too search for
the right companion.

Yoou get tto use a kind oof technology that allows you to establish any kind
of relationship you want.
