What, exactly, is intuition? And what part does it play in the Law of Attraction? Can you always trust your intuition, or is it possible for it to lead you astray? Also, are you attracting stuff, or is the stuff attracting you? And of course, most importantly, how can you develop better intuition?
I explore all of this and more in today’s video.
Today, I want to answer a question that came to me from Awesome Janie (thank you Janie!) She writes: “I have been deliberate in thought and focus, and I know how it works, but I still have so many questions. One that keeps begging to be answered is how you explain or reconcile LOA and intuition. I feel the two are related but still different. For instance, I focus, and attract, deliberately receive, but when I feel intuitive it’s more about something attracted me. Is it possible, can LOA and these other concepts exist together?”
Well Janie, this is actually a really interesting question, because a lot of people misunderstand what intuition is. Intuition is really this guiding sense; it’s information that comes to you; it’s a sense of recognition you feel when you focus on something. It’s when something comes into your experience, whether that’s via your thoughts or your physical reality – something’s been attracted into your reality – and you get an intuitive hit, a sense of recognition that says “There’s something there for me.” A lot of people will say that they were intuitively guided to something. They may have not been paying attention, but suddenly they realize that they were walking down a street and took a different way, or they were reading something online and sort of lost themselves in it, and suddenly there was something they recognized as being significant for them in some way. Maybe they don’t even know (usually you don’t know) why it’s significant, but it just is.
Intuition is very much part of the attraction mechanism, and as I explain in my book, Deliberate Receiving: Finally The Universe Makes some Freakin’ sense! (which you told me you’ve read), it comes into play whenever there’s a progression of manifestation going on. Here’s a really quick rundown of that progression for you:
Manifestations come into the physical in 5 stages
Stage #1 is focus.
Stage #2 is emotion. This is the first bit of feedback that comes in. All manifestations feel a certain way to you.
Stage #3 is thoughts, memories and ideas. Yes, memories, thoughts and ideas are all manifestations.
Stage #4 is synchronicities. These are smaller manifestations that are easy to miss and dismiss that we often call “coincidences”.
Stage #5 is where the big, physical manifestations show up. This is also where you manifest action.
What frequency are you activating?
What happens here, is that manifestations get bigger and bigger and bigger when you’re on this progression. This is true whether you’re on a progression of something wanted, not wanted, or something somewhat wanted. It all depends on the frequency you’re activating within yourself. As you’re activating these frequencies within yourself, as you are vibrating at a certain frequency, your reality is going to mirror that frequency back to you through manifestations. They are all going to feel the same way as the frequency you’ve activated feels. That’s why emotions and feelings are so important in this work, because they are your first indicator of what frequency you’re manifesting.
When you are intuitively guided to something, when that information, that recognition comes in, it means that the manifestation you have will strongly match the progression of manifestation that you’re on and it’s going to take you further down that progression. Even your journey to the thing that gave you that intuitive hit is part of the manifestation. Also, remember that action is part of your manifestation. Action is a manifestation; you are guided to that action whether it’s positive or negative action. The actions that you take are a direct result of your energy, of your vibration, and of the progression of manifestation that you’ve got going on. Which is why quite often when you’ve got a strong progression going on, you take action without even meaning to. You can’t help yourself. It might be in the negative, or it might be in the positive, but you’ll often take action before you even know what’s happened. Intuition is just that: recognition that something has come in that matches your current active progression.
Vibrating at a frequency of something you want
Your job really is just to make sure you are vibrating at a frequency of something that you want rather than vibrating at a frequency that’s there by default. Maybe your default frequency is what you’ve inherited from whatever vibrational soup you were born into. It’s like having programs installed on your hard drive by your family, your culture, your religion, or your geographic location, but you can replace them with programs that serve you better now. Those old programs that no longer serve you are what we call “limiting beliefs”. That’s all a limiting belief really is. It’s sort of like an outdated program. You have a lot of beliefs, many of which serve you greatly, but some of them are outdated. It’s the software that gets outdated that we now want to replace.
Can your intuition ever “fail” you?
Intuition can sometimes seemingly fail to serve you. The reason for this is because if you’ve got a strong progression going on about something you don’t want, you might get an intuitive hit that matches that progression. But that’s not the kind of intuition that we really want to activate. We want to activate the intuition that helps us to recognize what is for our highest good, so to speak. Our highest good is the thing that we really want the most of, or that matches who we really are. So, if we were to drop all of our defensive mechanisms, and all of our fears, and just be completely and totally in the vibration of love, what would our intuition be telling us?
Is there is a way to activate high vibrational intuition?
Yes! The way to activate it is to get into a higher vibration as much as you possibly can. And remember, you don’t have to be in a high vibration, or even vibrating at the frequency of what you want 100% of the time. All you really need to do is tip the balance between being in a lower vibration and being in a higher vibration (you have be vibrating at the frequency of what you want 51% or more of the time), and then trying your best to stay in the higher vibration as much as you can, or as often as you think about it. But how do you get into a higher vibration?
Well, you do things that feel good. You don’t try to feel good about the things that you don’t feel good about; you just do things that feel good. This will start to activate a progression of manifestation that’s on a higher frequency and then those intuitive hits that you’re getting will lead you towards what it is you actually want. That’s basically what we do in this work; we manifest an intuitive hit that leads us towards what we want by getting into a general higher vibration. It can be a totally general vibration; it doesn’t have to be specific. A very general high vibration will be just fine.
A lot of the times, just relaxing, taking a breath or 20, or meditating a little bit, will help you to activate a higher vibration. You can also start to activate higher vibrations by going to a funny movie, reading a funny book, looking at funny cat videos online, having great conversations with friends, or by just having fun. When you give yourself permission to do that, you’ll start to activate a higher vibration. Of course, you can also deliberately and very specifically work on things, but make sure you notice how that feels. If you’re feeling good, you’re going to start a progression of manifestation and you’re going to build up a progression that’s going to bring about more and more of what you want.
And then you’ll receive intuitive hits. And sometimes that sense of recognition or guidance can feel like it’s pulling you towards something, like it’s attracting you.
Are you attracting it or is it attracting you?
What you’re really feeling is that you’re attracting it. But if you have no frame of reference, if there’s no background, and if one object is moving towards another, you can’t really tell which object is moving towards the other one. Without some kind of reference, you have no way of knowing (if you’ve ever sat in a stationary train, only to feel like you were moving when a train next to moved in the opposite direction, you know how easy it is to get confused).
For example, if you were out in space you would have no frame of reference of what is stationery, where up and down is, or where left and right is. If you have no frame of reference you can’t tell where one is going, if you are attracting it, or if it’s attracting you. But here’s the thing: You are attracting it, but you’re also sometimes part of the mechanism that brings it to you. That’s why sometimes it feels like it is attracting you. You were guided to it by manifesting actions (which are manifestations) which were moving you towards this thing that’s coming into your life (or moving it towards you). You were actually a part of the mechanism that helped it come to you.
For example, you may have been led to walk down a certain street, or click on a certain website. These actions that you took were part of your manifestation. Just in the same way as if a delivery guy had shown up at your front door and handed you a package.
So, hopefully, the concept of intuition is now a bit clearer. If you have any questions you’d like me to answer in a video, let me know in the comments below. Until next week, thank you for bringing your light to the world and happy shiny puppy hugs.
