Learning to Develop Medium Skills – A Short Course Part 3

Note: this is the third of a Five Part Series, by popular request, on how to develop the abilities we all have.Interpreting IntuitionHow you interpret intuitive messages is different from everyone else. No one size fits all in the spiritual world. And, yes, you get messages in different ways from everyone else.And there are many levels and facets to intuition. Start with your thoughts and feelings. You, more than anyone else, must know what’s going on inside of you.  You are learning to tune into it.You are learning, by using your notebook, the difference between intuition and emotions. As you review each week’s entries, you can put a check by those things that come true and those that are fueled by emotions, and therefore do not pan out. You learn your true intuitive voice by comparing a difference between your emotional ups and downs and your intuitive feelings.Intuition comes in quiet, emotionless messages, images or knowings. The mystical experience of knowing is what most mediums and psychic mediums have learned to trust implicitly. This is the glimpse into the true reality of our being-ness. Moments of spiritual intuition are definitely unforgettable, and add to your library of confidence. Yet, this takes time and practice, like getting in shape and going to the gym. Be patient with yourself.Once you learn to relax your physical body and cognitive mind, so you can access your intuition, the next step is receptivity to what you receive. Most of what you receive will be in feelings, or fleeting images in your mind. When you deliberately set out to identify them, you will be amazed how quickly they will come to the forefront of your awareness.And, just like going to the gym, you have to practice with this to get better at it. As you get better at it, you build your confidence in working with it and listening to it. This is where the value of your notebook from last time’s lesson comes into play.Continue to spend 15 to 30 minutes a day quieting your mind, and “listening” for feelings and information. Write them down. As you go through your day, write down the messages you receive, as well. Keep your notebook going. Sit down once a week and check off those messages that proved accurate and true. Cross out those that did not. Take notice of what the similarities are with the items with check marks. What is similar in all those items you crossed off? Start noticing the difference between emotional thoughts and intuitive messages.Learn to discern emotions from intuition. You can. Build your library. You are progressing.
