This question put me in mind of a story of the centipede, which walked every day of his life effortlessly despite his many legs. One day, a ladybug stopped the centipede and commented on how much she and the community admired the agility and speed with which the centipede walked. The ladybug went further to ask: “How do you know which leg to move first?” The centipede stopped a moment to contemplate the question, answering that he hadn’t really thought about it before. When he wanted to continue on his way, the centipede found he was paralyzed. It seems that when he stopped to think about which leg to move first, he couldn’t move at all.
When my eldest brother was five years old he was walking with my parents through what today we would call a strip mall. Losing sight of him for a moment, my parents frantically searched and quickly recovered him seated at a piano in a music store two doors down. He was playing Bach, as if he had been a student for years. Of course with the help of a credit card, a piano was purchased that day and my brother has been able to play anything he hears once, academically correctly, without studying.
Receiving Messages from Spirit
Although I would never consider placing demands for assistance on anyone or anything in this world or the next I do not hesitate to politely ask for help when it’s needed. I prefer a relationship of mutual thoughtfulness, and so I always ask and say thank you, just as I would with someone on the corporal plane. I do have occasions when something seems so unlikely that I ask for several confirmations. The Spirit always confirms the truth, if I pay attention. There are times when I am told that a thing will not be revealed to me or to a client for whatever reasons. I simply accept the silence with gratitude.
Trusting your Other Senses
I believe the most significant component for expanding one’s own psychic skills is acknowledging that we all possess these abilities to one degree or another, practice developing our senses, and have confidence in what we experience. How many times have you had a gut feeling, an instinct, or a knowing and talked yourself out of your primary response?
Next time this happens try practicing The 3 T’s:
If one practices silently listening, you will be amazed at what you can know intuitively. It is also true that when a strong desire, fear or any other compelling emotion or attachment is present, it can be difficult to hear clearly. That is why I turn to others for readings about myself, and that is why I am so delighted to be available to help the many dear ones who turn to Psychic Source when they seek clarity or guidance.
In closing I will share one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite authors: “Trust your instinct to the end, though you can render no reason.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
