A couple weeks ago, I was cycling home from work when I got a clear vision of my mailbox in my mind. It had two yellow envelopes sticking out of it – one big and one small. I was even able to ‘see’ the contents of one of those envelopes: it contained a spare set of keys my sister had mistakenly taken home to Pennsylvania with her when she was here visiting. Now, I was still a good 15 minutes away from home when I ‘saw’ the mailbox. And I didn’t even know my Mom had mailed me the keys. But as soon as I got home I checked my mailbox and it looked exactly as I’d seen it. And sure enough, the bigger yellow envelope contained my keys.
A friend of mine was having a health crisis, and I accompanied her to the emergency room. As we sat in the room, I knew…just knew that everything was going to be okay. No amount of tears or pain or struggling was going to convince me that the outcome was going to be what she feared. I told her with 100% conviction that everything was okay. Something was telling me it was okay: and it was.
As an empath, I can easily feel the emotions of those around me. I’ve been this way for as long as I can remember. Since becoming pregnant, my empath abilities have kicked it up a notch (or ten). I feel others’ feelings even more deeply. I feel the emotional pain and angst of animals, people on television and especially of those around me. Everything feels magnified, intensified and deep-ified (I know, I know…not a word).
And that’s not all:
- I see 3:33 every day, without fail
- I think of people and hear from them the same day
- I just ‘know’ what someone’s next move is going to be or the next sentence that comes out of their mouth before they speak it.
- I’ve entered 5 contests so far during this pregnancy…and won three of them. My baby must come with a golden horseshoe or have a 4-leaf clover in there with her! Or maybe it’s just that I have a stronger connection with the Universe and know which contests I’m meant to win? Please oh please oh please let it be the lottery next time!
What can I attribute this heightened sense of intuition to?
In typical pregnant woman fashion, I find myself forgetting words, simple words everyone ‘should’ know. I’ve embarrassed myself on more than one occasion. This makes me think about the frequency at which my pregnant brain is operating, and wonder if that’s at all related to intuition. Can my heightened intuition also be explained in the same way my pregnancy brain is?
Intuition comes through best when we are relaxed and receptive. When we’re embroiled in fear or worry, it can’t come through as easily. So maybe it’s my relaxed and happy state during pregnancy that is bringing all of this about.
Intuition is linked to brainwave frequency: in beta (stress-related or goal-oriented thinking), our brainwaves are rapid and fast-moving. In alpha (brought on through meditation or relaxing activity), our brainwaves slow, and become more synchronous with those around us. We literally “tune in”.
This tells me the key to increasing intuition is being more relaxed, getting your brain to spend more time in alpha than beta. Staying calm, open and letting go of fear and worry.
In what moments do you find your intuition strongest? If you have ever been pregnant, did your intuition increase during your pregnancy?
PS – Julie (A Clear Sign) and I are working together again – and this collaboration brings you into the mix! We had an overwhelming amount of questions submitted for our “Ask Two Intuitives” series, so we thought we’d do ya better: an evening with Two Intuitives!
This is a Group Event where you can ask your most burning question and have the benefit of BOTH of us putting our heads together, just for you. Only $20.
We will take the first 20 people to sign up for the event. You give us your photo (faces and eyeballs, please!) and question and we’ll respond with a recorded Group Reading where we answer via your Spirit Guides and Angels.
Not only do you get to hear what spirit has to say in response to your question, but you get to hear everyone else’s as well!
The call will be sent to each of you, individually.
The deadline to sign up is Saturday, October 13th or when all spaces are filled, whichever comes first. Send your photo and question along with your payment or directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
