Today I want to share something from my book Charm Casting, I think it’s an important reminder:
Everyone can access their intuition. Absolutely everyone. No exceptions.
Some people find connecting to their intuition easier than others do, but it’s a skill that can be learnt and practised. And the more you practise, the easier it becomes.
You may doubt your intuition because its quiet whispers are drowned out by the doubts, fears and overwhelm of everyday life. It may also be hard to hear the voice of your intuition because you’ve long since forgotten how to truly trust yourself.
We’ve spent much of our lives hearing the world we live in try to convince us that other people know what we need better than we do. The quiet voices of our intuition get drowned out by our fast-paced lives and by instant gratification. They get overwhelmed by the constant stream of other people telling us what to do, how to behave and what’s true.
Our current society rarely values the gifts of our intuitive selves.
Intuition can’t be measured, so it isn’t seen as productive. It’s perceived as having less value than something that’s tangible and provable. Intuition lies in the realms of the mysteries: that which can’t be explained or rationalised. We’ve been taught to fear what we can’t explain or control, yet our intuition is at once our greatest strength and our way to access our inner power. It helps us to navigate our inner landscapes, so we can navigate the outer landscapes with more grace, ease and flow.
As you work with your charms, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of, and access to, your intuition. And just like with a muscle, the more you use it, the stronger your intuition becomes.
To start with, you may feel rusty. You may feel that you’re doing it wrong. But the truth is that you can’t get this wrong. In fact, many people who start working with their intuition find that the most difficult part is that there is no right or wrong way to do it.
We human beings love rules. We’ve been taught that rules keep us safe. And while many rules do exactly that, some can limit us – stifling our growth and expression. We live in a world that’s governed by rules. We’re taught that there’s a right way and wrong way to do everything. We strive for success and we fear failure. We want to achieve. We value getting there quickly and directly, not having time to waste.
And intuition is almost the polar opposite of ALL these things.
There’s no wrong way to access your intuition.
There are no hard and fast rules. There’s guidance, yes, but it’s only guidance.
We’ve grown accustomed to following the rules. We want to get things right and we’re afraid to get them wrong.
But when you step into the mysteries, the home of your intuition, you’re no longer governed by the same rules or structures. At first, that can feel confusing.
As you awaken your intuition, though – as you learn to trust your inner voice and interpret the language of your soul – you’ll experience a greater sense of inner freedom. You’ll feel more connected to your inner power. You’ll feel more confident in who you are and how you show up in the world.
But to do this, you need to embrace the mysteries – the mysteries you were taught to fear, and may indeed once have feared. When you embrace those mysteries, you’ll realise that they’re where you actually hold your greatest strength. They’re where your greatest source of confidence, courage and inner knowing lie.
Then, once you activate your intuition, you’ll step into a world of learning to trust both yourself and the messages from your soul. When you can do this, you’ll stop seeking external validation. You’ll stop holding back because of fears and old conditioning.
Once you begin to trust yourself and your intuition, your whole life changes. You start making EVERY choice you face in a way that aligns with your soul purpose. You make it from a place of inner power and confidence – a place of knowing that you have your own back.
You develop a clarity and a confidence that you can face anything that comes your way. You start creating your life from a place of conscious alignment, rather than from habit.
There’s no doubt that as you begin to awaken your intuition, your life will change. And it will change in a really wonderful, empowering way.
People think that charms will ‘give you the answers’. The truth is that they’ll actually help you to find your own answers. They’ll help you to remember the power and wisdom that you’ve always had.
To quote Glinda the Good Witch from The Wizard of Oz: “You always had the power, my dear. You just had to learn it for yourself.”
If you’re ready to make a deeper connection with your intuition, charm casting is a potent form of divination to explore.
