There you are, lying anxiously on the massage table waiting for the therapist to begin. Your body is still wound up from a day at work. Your mind races and deep inside you feel as though you’re going to vibrate right off the table. As soon as the therapist’s hands touch your body, you are jello.
There are many explanations for this response, including, simply, one that is tactile. Let’s look further and interpret it as a form of intuition. In this massage instance, it’s a physical body sensation based in our ability to physically feel energy from outside ourselves–it’s called “clairsentience.”
Even though there are many relaxing stimuli present–quiet music, evocative scent, soft color–the therapist transmits something through her hands that goes beyond what triggers all the usual senses.
The following experiences convey various types of intuition, even telepathy. Some are pretty simple and are sort of the norm for us all. Others are a bit more complex and until fairly recently have remained hidden to the mainstream behind a thin veil of fear or discomfort, even denial. All involve what is often called the metaphysical realms–energetic or spiritual experiences–beyond the physical.
It takes willingness to see things differently and a bit of dedicated practice to bring the pieces of the puzzle together. Even if you’ve been intuitive all your life, are you ready to take it further, to own it 24-7? Are you willing to engage with it in a more truly responsible realm for the greater good? Read and gauge these scenarios for yourself; have you ever experienced anything like them? Do you want to experience more of the same with consciousness?
-You walk by a building and feel a cold chill.
-You’re driving down the freeway and suddenly feel the spiky rush of adrenalin pulsing through your body. Not a car in sight, a mile down the road you come across a serious accident.
-You aren’t a sports enthusiast, yet are talked into a professional soccer game while traveling through Chile. The closer you get to the stadium, the more excited you become.
-A woman awakens at 3:15am mountain time feeling all the symptoms of a heart attack. Gasping for air, she holds her heart and wonders whether or not she should call 911. Instead she walks around the living room, sweating and panicking with chest pain. She does her best to breathe deeply and slowly until the symptoms finally clear away nearly an hour later. This woman’s mother calls the following day with news of her father who had experienced a heart attack at approximately 2:15am Pacific time.
These are clairsentient experiences–intuition through body sensation.
-In another time, a woman is walking through her castle garden with her husband holding his arm. She spontaneously gasps and squeezes tightly, her eyes widening. She turns quickly to his chest, looking up into his eyes and murmurs without apparent cause, “she’s been taken.” At the same time in a different part of the country, this woman’s daughter has just been tattooed with the priestess’ crescent moon symbol on her forehead.
-A man lays down on his living room carpet to stretch his back and relax. Suddenly an image of his wife comes to mind…she is making love to someone else. The man sobs uncontrollably, watching as the image plays out in full-length and color. Later he confronts his wife and she admits to the affair.
-One Friday, a woman begins to see the image of an acquaintance in her mind and out in her energy field as well. This image is tenacious, and no matter how many times she clears her mind and field, this face does not go away. Gradually the woman’s head begins to pound, her body goes into fear, she tosses and turns for two nights. Thoughts of this face are rampant, preoccupying her mind throughout the weekend. On Monday she calls that acquaintance to set up a brief tea date. The conversation reveals an incident that took place on Thursday that validates & explains the presence of this face around her the last few days. As soon as the conversation is complete, the face disappears, the thoughts stop, and the woman sleeps again.
These are all clairvoyant (clear sight) experiences; the second and third are also empathic (ability to feel others emotions); the third is probably clairaudient as well.
-A woman rests in her hotel room. Suddenly, a quick short breath throws her head onto the back of her chair and she feels immediately lost and alone, overwhelmed with fear. A voice rings in her head over and over, “where is everyone, why is everyone gone; why isn’t anyone here?” A barrage of rainy, sodden images fly through her mind, though nothing looks familiar, and the loneliness creeps in deeper and deeper for the next few days. On the last leg of her journey home across country, she becomes filled with rage and begins to spontaneously & primally scream for no apparent reason.
-When she arrives home, she learns that three key people in her life had betrayed her on the very day of that first lonely vision. Upon walking into her office for the first time in three weeks, she feels unwelcome and pushed out, like someone else belongs there instead. Some days after, she learns that the same three people had misused her work space while she was away and many assumptions were made about ownership.
Both of these experiences involve clairaudience, empathy and clairvoyance.
We are all gifted with visions, feelings, hunches, instincts and the like. Intuition is our inheritance and an ally!
Use it, speak to it, trust it, embrace it without reservation. Sometimes the signs are very soft and quiet; sometimes they are loud and obnoxious. At times they are seriously tenacious and just won’t go away; we lose sleep because we fail to address the first signs. Reframe what you previously thought of as mental chatter; notice if you feel emotional or have physical sensations at odd times. Do strange thought patterns arise…things you wouldn’t normally think about?
Listen and honor these moments; you will soon become a fluent “intuitive” speaker with increasing awareness and graced with a new interpretation of events around you!
