What is Intuition?

Chakra Centers, Spirituality, Starseed Corner


424683_304747482906846_1884992790_nIntuition is a term given to a very natural, though commonly ignored and suppressed method of accessing sensory information. Intuition is no less natural than the five senses commonly accepted by modern-day humans, although sight, smell, taste, touch, and hearing are more openly spoken of and utilized to gather information about the world around us. For the past several hundred years, intuition has been sitting decidedly below the radar of the majority of humanity’s conscious awareness.

Intuition is not a sense that is unique to humankind. In actuality, most of Earth’s other beings can access intuitive information much more easily than most humans alive today can. If you have ever owned pets, especially pets of varying species, such as cats and dogs, then you have probably seen them interact with one another intuitively, or telepathically. If you think about your own interactions with a pet or a newborn baby, it is likely that you will be able to remember communicating in a way that had nothing to do with sound, sight, or touch – this was your intuition. The plant kingdom also uses intuition to communicate. Some inter-plant communication can be explained by events such as the chemicals that plants release during various stages of their life cycles, but much of the ways in which singular organisms making up eco systems communicate information with one another (as well as in groups) defies what we commonly see as “logical” knowledge.

Because humans have a more developed neocortex than most other beings alive on our planet, and because we utilize verbal language to communicate much of the time, intuition is likely to feel different for us than it does in the natural world…at least to our perception. However, intuition can be seen as very similar, if not identical, to what we call “instinct” in animals and plants. Butterflies spend multiple generations’ lifetimes in one yearly migration, and birds naturally know when to fly to more comfortable climates at various points throughout the year. Other animals know instinctively when to hunt, mate, and hibernate. Why wouldn’t we, as humans, be able to access this inherent knowledge? We are of this planet too. And yet, we are also fundamentally different from much of the animal kingdom on our world. The way that we can bridge these similarities, as well as these differences, is in identifying and understanding our intuitive capabilities.

Besides communicating with pets or babies, you have probably felt intuition bring you information in other ways over the course of your life. You have likely felt an excited feeling before receiving good news, or a foreboding feeling before receiving bad news. You might have thought of a friend that you haven’t communicated with in quite some time, only to have that friend contact you suddenly within the next few days. You may also have experienced dreams that predicted future events, or in which you are interacting with spirit guides, angels, deceased relatives, or living loved ones that are giving you information that you have no “logical” way of knowing that is later proven correct. All of these experiences are made possible through perfectly natural intuition.

Like many aspects of human experience, intuition is readily accepted by children. Most children are highly intuitive, although they may not speak 295679_431670446927349_803521032_nof their intuitive awareness because they do not hear others speak of it. It is also likely that conversations about intuition may not happen with or between children because it feels so natural to them that they have no need to discuss it.  When is the last time you heard a child speak about the nature of sight or the sense of touch? It probably hasn’t happened often, if at all. This is because children take their intuitive awareness for granted as another natural sense – that is, until they learn that this is something that is not accepted as a topic of conversation.
I have a foggy memory of being a little girl about four years old, and realizing quite consciously that I had to choose between interacting with the non-physical beings that I could easily perceive and being socially ostracized. I realized through comments made by my playmates that greeting and otherwise speaking with multidimensional friends made me seem weird or crazy, and so I chose to stop seeing my guides. I could not see them and ignore them, so I forced my mind to deny their very existence – and this is a sense that I’ve worked for years to get back.

The choice to not see multidimensional beings is not only one that comes from difficult social choices, however. A very gifted intuitive healer and friend of mine named Kimberly Cochrane had a beautiful baby girl not long ago. When Seraphina was a few months old, Kimberly noticed that she was often laughing, smiling, and happily playing with beings that Kimberly couldn’t see. Kimberly also noticed that often when an adult would lean over Seraphina, speaking to her, she would not look into the eyes of the person there, but she would look and seemingly communicate with someone invisible just above and/or behind whomever was speaking to her. Kim assumed that these were angels, or spirit guides, speaking to and playing with Seraphina in the same way that embodied humans do.

When Seraphina was about six months old, Kimberly noticed that the baby no longer interacted with beings that Kimberly could not see. We had a conversation about this shift, and we realized that although the adults around Seraphina in no way doubted the validity of her experience, she had still noticed and learned that these beings were ignored by everyone around her. So Seraphina began to ignore the beings as well, most of the time.

Seeing otherworldly beings can be likened to looking through a window at the world outside. When you focus on objects through the glass, the window pane seems perfectly transparent. However, once you notice the reflection of your own face or other objects on your side of the window shining back against the glass, the focus of your eyes shifts and you can easily see the reflection. Multidimensional beings, such as angels, guides, and ghosts (which are ordinarily either friendly or completely benign, minding their own business) are similar to the reflection on your side of that window – you must adjust your focus to see them, but once you do, they are relatively easy to perceive.


Although angels and ghosts take up much of the topic of otherworldly awareness in stories and media, intuition is more than just communicating with multidimensional beings. Intuition can be utilized in gleaning valuable information about the world around us, much like hearing a traffic report, checking the weather forecast for the day, or receiving an itinerary for a trip. Intuition gives us another perspective on the events of our lives, gifting us with a greater sense of efficacy, fluidity, and conscious involvement with our experiences. Ancient cultures often not only believed in intuition, but utilized it fully, having men and women in the community who specialized in gleaning and interpreting intuitive information. These people where often called shaman or medicine men or women.

Developing intuition is not a difficult process, although it takes a good deal of mental and emotional focus in the beginning. Because intuition is a natural human sense, it does not need to be activated or gained. Instead, the blockages to perception that most of us have adopted over the course of our lives need to be cleared in order for us to fully identify and understand our own personal intuitive language. The first big hurdle to using intuition is in believing that intuition is “real” at all. This paradigm shift can be sped up by doing research on intuitive information that has been accepted by the modern world, such as the power of prayer and miracles recorded by religious institutions that the researcher respects. The second hurdle is in noticing one’s own intuition. Like the window’s reflection, intuition is often ignored or assumed to be imagination or a wandering mind. Keeping a journal of intuitive thoughts, feelings, and dreams especially help toward this effort. The journal should be reviewed every so often (perhaps each week or so) to see what intuitive awareness can be confirmed. After a substantial record has developed of your own intuitive “hits,” it becomes much easier to identify and accept the intuitive information that you are perceiving quite often, just below your conscious awareness.

Accessing and utilizing intuition is often a rewarding and fun exercise. Because intuition is a natural human sense, it can assist us in every area – relationships, businesses, hobbies, talents, and more. We are living in a time where people are noticing their intuition more than they have in hundreds, possibly thousands of years. At one time, people would have been persecuted harshly if they utilized their intuitive potential very much. These days, the application of intuitive abilities can range from career choices to party tricks, but like any sense, why would we choose not to use it?

Source: The Ultimate Quantum Entanglement

Quantum Empowerment


world webQuantum entanglement.  It’s a seemingly simple concept, but quantum entanglement conducts an infinite connective web across the universe, irrespective of time and space.  This quantum physics principle has not only been proven micro- and macroscopically, but has vast implications for humans!  The most important thing for you to know is quantum entanglement is already at work in every facet of your life.  We’re going to look at how this one principle affects everything you do, and how it connects you to your place of empowerment.

Universal Connections

As a quick recap from Quantum Empowerment 101, quantum entanglement is the universal force connecting you to anyone and anything you have ever been in contact with, regardless of space or time.  It is a process working in conjunction with nonlocality.

At first glance, we may consider this a somewhat limiting process.  If it required you background_128-ato be in contact with someone or something in order for a connection to form through quantum processing, then that probably connects you to thousands of people, right?  Not so much!  Let’s look at the beauteousness that is you.

As human biological systems, we are made of elements, atoms, compounds, and particles.  Primarily, we are made of hydrogen, carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen; even if we just consider these elements, each component has been part of the universe since the beginning of existence.  Whether these particles have existed as is, or have decayed from former identities into their newer versions, they have been a part of the universe for billions of years…if not more.

Can you imagine the immense amount of contact each of these particles making up your unique composition has had with other particles and compounds, let alone full-blown matter?  Let’s just say that’s trillions of connections!  Now let’s get really funky with it!

As human beings, we eat food for sustenance.  We require nutritional osmosis through ingestion in order to replenish our system.  This means we are absorbing more particles, compounds, and elements, creating more intricate universal connections: the soil your produce was grown in, the water it absorbed to grow, the sun rays which were absorbed for photosynthesis, and the list goes on.  These connections also apply to animal based products such as cheese, milk, meat, etc.  This is one example of the quote, “You are what you eat.”

DNA-Awakening-2012Now, consider your genetic composition.   You are the unique expression of a genetic blueprint.  The single-origin hypothesis supposes every human being comes from the same center in Africa.  This hypothesis is supported by experiments, which examined the craniofacial features of the major homosapien groups, as well as intricate DNA examinations (Hanihara, 1998; Harpending, Batzer, Gurven, Jorde, Rogers & Sherry, 1998; and Limar, 2011).  There was another study conducted by Harpending et. al (1998)  examining the nonrecombining component of the Y chromosome in mitochondrial DNA; this study indicated the origins of the human race originated from about 10,000 people, albeit non-region specific.  What does this mean?  Large portions of humans are connected through DNA transfers alone.

Combining the DNA connections with all of the other quantum entanglements, which have been collected billions of years before your consciousness entered physical vessel, and you have a tight knit weave of universal associations!

The Sacred Connection

Beyond the purely material connections we’ve made over the course of our existence, we have made divine energetic connections as well.  When our energy has connected with someone else’s, a quantumly entangled relationship occurs.  This is one reason why you may find connections to the same souls over lifetimes and dimensions.  But there’s something even more important to consider.

All of life comes from the infinite spark of Source, Creator, God, Goddess, or the Original Energy, whichever term you are most comfortable with.  Everything in existence is an expansion and fractal existence of the original, infinite Source.  Not only are you quantumly entangled with Source, you are a piece of Source with a direct connection to the expansive consciousness Source possesses. Quantum empowerment matrix

This connection is what allows you to develop your consciousness, to connect with your guides and other multidimensional beings, and to evolve your perspective into the vastness of Source’s omnipresent, omnipotent wisdom if you so choose.  The universe was created in a way that does not just allow, but commands an inseparable bond with one another, your planet, your universe, all of existence, and Source.  You are never alone.  You are never forsaken.  You are never left without the ability to connect with the answers for any dilemma you face or the lessons you need to learn.  You are simply, divinely loved because you are the spark of Source incarnate.

Entangled Empowerment

Earth connectedOnce you learn how to really own and use the quantum processes at work in your life, you step into a place I like to call Quantum Empowerment!  The zenith of Entangled Empowerment, a subset of Quantum Empowerment, results when you are able to perceive yourself, others, and world events from the perspective of Source.  Often, we call this place alignment.

When you are in alignment, you act from your most authentic essence.  Your ego is not striving for attention because it has become an accepted and integrated component of the beautiful being who is you, not something you argue with or fight against.  When you approach your life from divine, balanced alignment, then you are making decisions from a higher perspective, reducing the amount of resistance you experience.  Life becomes magical, helping you expand and integrate more of your divine essence, instead of being a chess game that’s missing half of the pieces, on a torn board, with the directions from Trouble.

Stay Tuned…

 In the next article, I will help show you ways to strengthen these connections and the quantum processes around you, as well as how you can use them to create the life you deserve and love.  Get ready!  You’re about to become quantumly empowered!
