What Your Dreams Are Telling You
The other night I had a crazy dream which is pretty typical for me, but this one hit differently because it took me back to just before I accepted that I was different. It took me back to when I used to have nightmares all the time and feel unsettled like I was being watched constantly.
It took me back to when I would see colors and faces when I closed my eyes and did not have a clue what they meant. It took me back to when I used to hear things that no one else heard and made me think I was a literal crazy person.
Back then, I used to have dreams of people who had passed all the time. In those dreams, I would talk to them and tell them they shouldn’t be there because, well, they were dead. (Now, when this happens, I know it’s a visitation.)
A friend named Chris used to visit me all the time during this season of life. So much that I thought I was crazy (because we weren’t even close when he passed now, I know that doesn’t matter.) When I told my childhood bestfriend she said:
Yeah, dude, you’re weird. You’ve always been weird. How do you not know this about yourself? You’ve seen and said weird things since we were kids. I think he’s trying to talk to you, but you need to figure out how to be safe; this is nothing to play with. I think you need to get happy first.
She was right, and that was 7.5 years ago. Chris jumpstarted my journey, and I hadn’t seen him until last night. It reminded me of how I needed to tap into my intuition but didn’t know where to start.
Here is what I needed most when I decided to explore the possibility that I was an intuitive person.
I needed to trust myself. I had so many tangible and unexplainable experiences that I talked myself out of. I told myself they were all coincidences. The dreams, hearing things, feelings of being watched, I told myself it was all made up. The more you trust, the more you will be given TO guide/help you!
I needed to learn to love & accept myself. Until you accept and appreciate who you are, there isn’t much room for you to get consistent guidance at will. You have to create space to hear, see, and feel. You do this by healing internally, calling yourself out, and shedding layers until you see the true you. If you don’t love yourself it’s hard to feel the love of the universe which is what this is all about.
I needed to get out of my comfort zone. I needed to trust that there was good out there and that this wasn’t scary. I needed to learn to invite in the “light” and learn what the “light” was
Being intuitive isn’t seeing dead people everywhere – far from it. It’s getting nudges and being inspired.
It’s hearing messages and knowing you didn’t make it up. It’s seeing beautiful images when you close your eyes and knowing that it’s just for you! It’s feeling whether someone or something is a good or bad fit for you.
I thought to be a medium meant that I would see ghosts walking around.
I had to learn what TYPE of intuitive I was, and from there, I focused on those strengths. As I did the other “clairs” naturally strengthened and within a matter of months, I was able to help people by giving accurate readings and channeling for them.
You don’t do this for others or as a party trick. You do this for you! For you to heal, find peace, feel in flow, and feel loved. THEN and only then if you feel guided, you can do it for others. The reality is though when you tune in to this version of yourself, you naturally help others to heal just by holding space and being in that vibration.
Let me know if you want to learn to do this with me! Rise Then Shine is open now it includes intuitive development and mediumship courses as well as private coaching!
With so much love,
