Gut Instincts: “Intuition. Knowing. Sensing. Trust.”

“In the center of your being is a quiet space of inner knowing. Still your mind so you can connect with the call of your instincts.”

Card Story: “Calm and poised, the lion knows who he is. He responds from the purest form of confidence – a deep sense of knowing. He knows where water is. He knows where to find food. He knows how to go to keep his family safe. He knows when it is time to rest, to play, to sneak, and to run. He does all this without thinking. Without doubt, question or hesitation. The lion is pure wisdom in action because he follows the moment to moment inner pulse of his being and the undeniable call of his instincts.”

Card Message: “Our gut instincts are our soul’s way of communicating and guiding us on the path of life. While our minds produce thoughts and rational interpretation of our experience, our instincts connect to a more sensitive, intuitive wisdom that often communicates through physical sensations in our bodies.  This quiet nudge is our inner knowing, our connection with the Universe. It is always there if we stop to sense it. Do we follow its wisdom?

This card is a call to trust the inner feeling of your own gut instincts. The part of you that may not always seem logical or rational but nudges you with whispered guidance of what is right and true. Bring awareness to your feelings and physical sensations. Notice what happens when you act on your feelings… and when you go against them.

It is time to value the knowing wisdom of your ‘gut instincts’ more in your daily life. To pause for a moment before making purely mental decisions, and check in with the quiet inner voice of your body. The more you tune in to this aspect of your being, the more clearly it will speak to you and the more powerfully you will know how to respond.

Practice this in simple ways, as you travel through your day, allowing yourself to follow your instincts as you journey. Turn left when you feel to, even if you normally go right… go for a walk when the path calls, even if you think you do not have time to do so. You may not know at the time why, but by learning to trust these inner promptings, you will notice that life begins to flow more smoothly and you naturally find yourself in the right place at the right time doing the right thing… a lot more often!

Trust your intuition… and have the ‘guts’ to act on it!”

Where in your life are you living out of alignment? Where are  you compromising? Where are you refusing to listen to your intuition, ignoring the voice of your Soul speaking to you?

Maybe it is out of fear. Fear of change, fear of rocking the boat. Fear of losing what you have, facing something new; or of getting out of your comfort zone.

Your intuition is one of your most powerful tools for guiding you through life. It can tell you if a person, situation or opportunity is for you, or too good to be true. It can tell you if something is not quite right and to slow down and pay closer attention. It can lead you forward or stop you in your tracks. And it is never wrong if you learn to tap into it and heed it’s wisdom.

Are you listening to your intuition? Are you using it as your GPS to guide you? Are you tuning in and really feeling it?

When you feel wary, there is usually a reason. Often it is your intuition telling you that someone is wearing a mask. They may not even be aware of their mask, maybe they have been wearing it for so long that they believe it to be their true face. Maybe you enter into a situation that suddenly doesn’t feel right and you aren’t quite sure why you feel it. Or maybe you are talking to someone and you get a few red flags, but you really want to ignore them because you don’t want to see the truth. Whatever it is, if you commit to listening and following your instincts, it will save you a lot of time and energy… and often money and heartbreak.

Learn to trust yourself. Stand in your power. Find your strength, courage and confidence. Make decisions that are for your Highest Good and the Highest Good of All involved. And do not ignore it when your intuition tells you to turn the other way.

Namaste

Water Element ~ Sensing

Published March 9, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Water Element ~ Sensing, from the Black Moon Astrology Oracle Card deck, by Susan Sheppard, published by Blue Angel

Water Element ~ Sensing: “Your intellect may be confused, but your emotions will never lie to you.” ~ Roger Ebert

“Let matters flow.

In astrology, the element of water represents our emotions and our talents of the imagination. Water characterizes the realm of vision taking us into the quintessential depths of feeling where intuition is more appropriate than acquired wisdom and knowledge. We get ‘carried away’ on water. We have feelings of floating or being ‘adrift’ over water. when looking a the shimmering surfaces of water we cannot see to the bottom, but we know and sense what is there – deep things too obtuse and transitory to explain, fathoms of moods and insight. Water is the element of the signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. The planets of water are the Moon, Pluto and Neptune.

When the Water Element card presents itself in a spread, you can trust what you feel as the best course to follow. What you are sensing right now may not be based on any logic, it’s just that what you are sensing is correct. Right now, it is best to go with the flow and, depending upon the cars surrounding it, to trust that movement, although these changes may seem gentle and gradual.

Sometimes the Water Element card indicates a need to withdraw and fight another day. It is time to gather resources and gain strength before moving ahead. This can at times indicate trusting too soon or the passive acceptance of other people’s shortcomings when you shouldn’t accept them. You may have the tendency to want to allow things to pas you by without fighting for them, to let go of something that is rightfully yours. Water is the element of compassion and understanding. But avoid being a doormat. It is possible people or forces may take advantage of your benign and accepting nature.

This is a good time to imagine, write, paint, play or create anything, since water is the element of the imagination. It is the ability to quiet your conscious mind and allow yourself to be taken over by an idea or a dream. Water is painting, poetry, and music.

This care represents being connected to the flow of all things. It is also the ability to keep a secret or to work alone in privacy. It is probably best to now allow people or circumstances to not pin you down or hem you in. Frankly, you now have the ability to flow or drift out of any situation in the way water is able to move around obstacles very gently and easily.

Currently, you may also have the feeling of floating or being adrift. In a sense, it is a type of surrender. Maybe it is the surrender to a dream. At present, you may have little energy and want to withdraw. You are in fact doing a lot of inner processing which will take you where you want to go. There are deeper levels working and developing inside you, but the work is not seen on the outside. Expect a pause but forward motion soon.

Look inward. Don’t worry about the drama that surrounds you. Avoid the commotion, sit still, float, and trust your inner wisdom. It will not steer you wrong.”

Water Element Card In Brief: “Being led by feelings; what is felt, and what is known to be true directly through emotions, intuition; letting go or just going with the flow; extreme sensitivity; feeling shy or out of place; being quiet and introverted; subtle changes in circumstances and environment; the creative imagination; psychic dreaming; currents of emotion; confusion; fears of confronting a problem directly; feeling avoidant; mysteries and secrets; acting in a solitary or secretive way; having doubts; experiencing loneliness; walking our own path without help, timidity; feelings of guilt or shame; leaving things to chance; not pushing hard enough; giving up before time; travel near or over bodies of water, oceans, lakes or rivers; beach vacations; sea life; sea shells; overcast days; cancellations due to rain; flooding; water leaks in the home; essential oils; perfumes; candles; gentleness; feminine powers; the nourishment and nurturing of others.”

Corresponding Tarot Card; “Ace of Cups”

Key Ideas: “Emotional nuances; trips across the water; lack of energy; sensing what is accurate without being told.”*

~ By Susan Sheppard

There is a difference between trusting in your feelings, your gut instinct and your intuition, and getting caught up in your emotions. When we can tune in and look past the drama, the hurt feelings, the fear or the doubt, we can tap into what is really going on here. The ego gets caught up in right and wrong, who said what, and how we have been mistreated. The heart will tell us who we can trust, what feels light and high vibrational and what feels heavy or low vibrational. Where the ego may seek revenge or fear repeating old patterns, the heart can help us to move past the old pain and see something new.

This may be an emotional day for you, and that is ok. Honour your feelings, but do not get swept away with them. Maybe it is nostalgia, maybe it is pain from a rejection or finding out something hurtful. Maybe you can’t quite pinpoint the reason for the feelings, but there are present regardless. That is ok too. Sometimes we just feel isolated, lonely or anxious, especially with all the pressures of the present times. Give yourself some time to process these feelings, rather than trying to ignore them or stuff them down.

Get in the water if you can. Take a salt bath, or if you are lucky enough to be around an ocean, lake or river that you can immerse yourself in, even better. If you are able to take a little break, a vacation to somewhere by the sea, do it, you need it! ( I WISH…)

Don’t fight your emotions, just be with them. See if you can breathe through them, and imagine yourself rising above them, surfing the wave instead of being dragged down below it. Use this time for reflection and for the necessary healing.

This too shall pass

And so it is

Namaste
