A few months ago, I became conscious of Dr Sigmund Freud close by. It always works this way…I know there is a channeling to take place at some point in the future, and I wait for the energy to make itself known. Dr Freud was persistent and I feel this was his way in his earthly life.
It wasn’t always easy to channel his energy…it was intellectual and he was challenging, perceptive and piercing at times, particularly when he picked up the legacy of my childhood Catholic-guilt. Raised in the church until I was old enough to shrug off its punitive barriers and understand the truth of real spiritual connection, rather than being wedded to man-made dogma and rules, Dr Freud was able to see the imprint of this early conditioning.
That is how the channeling went. I felt he was mostly, two steps in front and I had to run to keep up, and it felt like he was psychoanalysing me some of the time. I could also feel the relationship he had with his earthly mother, and his dogged determination to satisfy his need to understand their relationship.
What struck me most of all, was Freud’s enlightenment around the vast reservoir of the unconscious. In his earthly lifetime he perceived it as linear…that it went only back to early childhood patterns. Even though he worked with dreams in his psychoanalysis, he speaks in this channeling of not going far enough. Here he provides us with a discovery that the unconscious, or ‘subconscious’, is endless, not linear, and is a vast resource for our use in our earthly lifetimes.
The question, after this channeling, was how to use it fully. My intuition tells me the answer lies in deep, spiritual connection. When we live a connected life, we are allowing a greater awareness to come forward to enrich our earthly lives.
One of the wonderful things about ‘reading’ for someone is the validation that often occurs after the reading.
Often when I begin a reading and tune into the client’s energy, I receive a series of pictures/images which allow me to bring forward my clairvoyance. These pictures guide me toward the central reason/s the client has requested the reading – often it is the core of the problem that, once acknowledged, can help initiate progress or provide insight and reflection. At other times I will ‘hear’ words and phrases (clairaudience). At times, I see these words and phrases written on a notepad.
Of late, I am reflecting emotions which provide an indication of the issue that might be causing a problem, for example, the need to express or release something that is troubling or has been bottled up.
For many years, I received these pictures and felt the feelings, and didn’t know what to do with them. Mostly I kept it to myself or tried to explain it to help someone, or correct something. It wasn’t until I was diagnosed with cancer and underwent treatment that I strengthened my connection with spirit and understood, for the first time in my life, that I needed to use the gift I’d been given.
When my clients return with validation, I smile quietly to myself. I don’t linger on the good news as ego shouldn’t come into a connection with spirit. Rather, I try and remain humble and hope that the information I was privileged to impart; the guidance I hopefully provided, will be helpful.
I believe we all have these gifts, and that we know more than we realise. One of the ways to strengthen our intuition is to use it. So next time you’ve got that gut feeling, acknowledge it, use it and learn to trust it.
