"The next time you feel like your intuition is eluding you, stop and take a long, deep breath. In fact, take several! The goal here is take a moment to quiet your mind and bring yourself into the present moment. There are many ways of doing this, but one of the easiest is to simply focus on the breath." - IntuitionJournal.com
One of the things that can be powerful about intuitive readings is that they can pick up on things you need to know, but aren't aware of yet.
The tool being used can be oracle cards, a person who does readings, an online app, etc. But when you get right down to it, you are asking your heart to share its wisdom. Or asking the divine to use your chosen resource or tool to pass on the message you need to hear.
Creating a hygge moment before you ask for intuitive guidance may calm you and make it easier to hear or receive the guidance that comes your way. Doing the hygge practices that already make you feel warm and cozy and relaxed may make the whole process an easier one.
What message do you need to hear right now? Take a deep breath or two and then hold that question in your heart as you choose the pic that appeals to you today.
Which one did you choose?
If this is the one you chose, then there is something you need to let go of and although you may have known that, you weren't ready before. You are ready now.
Take a moment to be clear about letting it go. Make the commitment.
Once you are ready, imagine writing it down on a slip of paper and tossing it into the fire. If you have a fireplace, you can actually do it and watch it burn away.
Another letting go practice you can try is to write it down & hold the slip in your hand tightly, letting all the thoughts and feelings you have had about it go into the paper. Then, at the sink, hold it under running water until the ink has run off the paper.
This second one means that there is a hurt or a heartache that needs to heal.
Write it down on a slip of paper and slide it beneath a tealight candle. Light the candle and sit across from it as it burns.
You can drink a cup of tea, write in your journal about this story you are healing, or just let your mind drift, returning from time to time to the thought that you are ready for this to heal.
When it burns down and goes out by itself, the healing is complete.
If you chose the third one, then hope is what you need. You have been feeling discouraged about something. Maybe about a problem that has been slow to resolve, or about something you want that has not yet come to you.
The practice that will help you is hygge daydreaming. Settle in to your comfy seat and breathe slowly and deeply until you are relaxed.
Then, you can begin. First, imagine opening the doors of your heart wide to hope and to trust. Then, I want you to imagine standing in front of another door.
When you open the door, you will see your future. Everything will have changed, all the problems have been solved and things are going well for you. Open the door and take a look around. Do you see yourself? What does the expression on your face look like?
Or maybe you don't see yourself but can feel your energy. What does it feel like? Stay there as you take in what has changed & think through what happened to turn things around.
Once you have soaked up how good it feels, take that feeling, place it in your heart and take it with you back into the present. When you know you have it with you now, come back fully and open your eyes if they were closed.
Of the four readings this month, this one seems deepest. How did it feel to you? Did it seems to match what you are needing right now?
See you next time!
