7 Myths About Intuition (That Just Aren’t True)

7 Myths About Intuition (That Just Aren’t True)

7 myths intuitionI wasn’t born with intuition…or so I thought. Even though I had studied physical and energetic anatomy in-depth and was LITERALLY taught how to feel and sense energy…

I didn’t think I had “intuition” and was FAR from thinking I had any psychic abilities.

In fact, I reserved those words for the real psychics, like the ones I’d save up to tell my fortune or read my cards.

(Never in a million years did I think I would be a card reading person, let alone create my own cards AND teach newbies and veterans my proven intuition-unlocking system!)

​It took a massive “spirit dope slap” to make me admit PUBLICLY that I had this ability.

But here’s the weirdest part! Spirit also insisted that I teach OTHER PEOPLE how to use their intuition too!

​​CLIFF NOTES: I didn’t think I was born with a “gift” and now I’m being told to teach people… this was such a scary insight for me at the time!

Truthfully though, once I understood that I did in fact have intuition and was already using it – it DRASTICALLY improved my life.

It helped me make more money and gave me more purpose and drive than ever before!

​Now I can honestly say that Intuition has aligned my biz in ways I never imagined it could and I’ve coached countless others to trust their intuition in my mastermind groups, courses, membership programs, and events!

​And in coaching others to develop their intuition, I’ve uncovered some pretty strong myths out there about intuition that just aren’t true.

I’m sharing these today so you can bust these myths and connect to your intuition too!

Here are the Top 7 Myths About Intuition (which one resonates most with YOU??):

intuition myth psychic gifts

MYTH 1: You have to be born with the psychic gift.

Intuition is kind of like 6-pack abs, we’re all born with the same abdominal muscles, but some of us (*waving my hand high) have to practice and work on it because we have a little “fluff” covering them!

I never thought I had the “gift” of intuition either, but after taking classes and trainings I developed my intuitive muscles and the more I practiced, the stronger my intuition became.

MYTH 2: Intuition can’t help you make money until you’ve cleared all your money blocks first.

Totally false! Making money IS one of the ways we clear those blocks. We have to use our intuition to take aligned action and create offers from a deeper place from within.

Our soul and spirit team will always guide us towards ways to heal wounds, clear blocks, and ultimately live our best lives. That always includes having wealth, joy, love, and ease!

I love teaching entrepreneurs how to tap into their intuition and clear money blocks. Check out my money block clearings on Facebook and YouTube – even on the replay you’ll feel the energy because it’s source-channeled! It’s always effective!

 

 

MYTH 3: You’re NOT psychic if you don’t see dead people.

I’m 100% NOT interested in becoming the next Theresa Caputo. I very much like going to restaurants and NOT seeing your dead uncle, thank you very much!

While I don’t call myself a medium, I do have encounters with dead people or spirit. They show up to deliver a message and then they’re out. The vibration of folks who’ve crossed over is a much lower frequency than I usually work with as well, so it’s probably much harder for them to “pop” in!

There are so many ways to connect with spirit without seeing dead people. One of my favorite ways is to connect with animals, plants, or minerals! You’d be shocked at how much love and energy they can share. Remember everything is energy.

Any animal that crosses my path, be it a red cardinal that flies around my yard, a gaggle of turkeys that I see on my morning walk, or a spirit of an animal during meditation – they all carry a significant message and meaning. Even if it’s a unicorn or another “fictional” animal, you’d be surprised how much a simple google search on their meaning will give you insight that will blow your mind! These are spirit messages without seeing dead people!

MYTH 4: I can’t tell the difference between my own voice and my intuition.

Most people can’t, at first. The easiest way to tell is that your intuition speaks softly, directly, and the messages are direct and to the point. Sometimes it literally sounds like your own voice in your head, but it’s softer.

Which is why we must get quiet to LISTEN! Prayer is asking, meditation is listening.

Our first instinct will come in softly, sweetly, and the NEXT voice that shows up is your ego – they’re more critical. Your ego will try to use logic to make sense of that “intuitive hit”. But think about this… you’ve also been taught to NOT listen to your inner knowing so why would you even trust that critical naysayer anyway?! Part of our work to understand the difference between your own voice and your intuition is to also UNlearn how to be human in this world. When we listen to inner wisdom and knowing, we can grow and transform. It makes it so we’re not easily manipulated or controlled…think about what a gift that is!

 

MYTH 5: You need to be a mind-reader to be considered intuitive

I’d rather NOT know what your inner thoughts are. I’m not open and available to read people’s thoughts no matter how much my husband wishes I could!

Intuition can be turned ON/OFF and reading people’s minds is not necessary. Spirit really won’t give you access to someone like that.

There’s such thing as ethics when it comes to spiritual work and energy anyway.

 

 

 

MYTH 6: If you “open up” then you’re not protected, grounded, or safe.

This has some truth to it. This is why I teach Intro to Intuition, Journey Into Your Akashic Records, and other classes I have on how to CORRECTLY open up your energy field. Get my FREE Mini Intuition Master Course!

There’s a lot of weird energy out there and if you don’t open up with Source energy, you’re susceptible to connecting to energies that are harmful or even dark. If you’ve encountered any of these, you know what I’m talking about.

You must be smart and use common sense when you’re opening your energy. ONLY call in white light, love, and your highest guidance who are here to serve your highest purpose with harm to none.

 

intuition religious

MYTH 7: I can’t open up my intuition if I’m religious

I’ve honestly lost count of how many strongly religious folks I’ve met over the years that are naturally quite intuitive, or have an interest in spirituality and intuition but they’re scared to use it. My podcast about how you can be both spiritual and religious covers this in-depth. LISTEN HERE!

The fact is that spirituality and intuition are not separate from God. I believe in God/Universe/Source as ONE. And YOU are also that.

We are not separate from that, we ARE also that. The deeper you study spirituality the more you will learn to honor that God within you, without all the dogma!

 

I’ve been “out” of my spiritual closet for a few years now and I can confidently say there are a lot of stories that I’ve heard about why people can’t open their intuitive abilities but these 7 come up the most.If you are ready to bust these myths for good and go further in developing your intuition, I hold a HUGE event twice a year called Intuition Week.

We go deep to clear abundance blocks, connect to your guides, and learn to receive your intuition to help not only your business but your WHOLE life too. The truth is, it doesn’t matter how many courses you buy, or coaches you hire, without strong intuition your business can get stuck, stuck, stuck! Learning to tap into your intuition at a higher level is the best gift you can give yourself to unlock abundance!

Self-Love as a Spiritual Entrepreneur –  12 Ways to “Bring It”

Self-Love as a Spiritual Entrepreneur – 12 Ways to “Bring It”

Please Note : This post contains affiliate links…

As an entrepreneur, it is much too easy to try to do “all the things”. You may find yourself chained to your computer, forgetting to play, feeling tired, or even feeling edgy around your loved ones instead of enjoying your time with them.

You may find that in trying to do it all, you forget about YOU

And that has to change my friends.

It’s high time we talk about self-love and the importance of giving yourself what you need and more.

For some of you, this idea of putting yourself first can feel wrong and confusing.

Especially for women. Think of all the TV shows where the moms are serving meals and it’s a joke how they don’t get to sit down and enjoy it. Eating a warm meal only if everyone else has theirs.

It’s often our first instinct to put everyone else first. It’s ingrained in us to take care of others and think of ourselves only if there’s time leftover.

But there’s no such thing as “leftover” time.

To make sure you have your best health, your best mental state, that you are living your best life, YOU need to make sure you treat yourself with the same love and compassion that you so willingly show others.

You would easily give love to someone else, be kind, and make sure they are fed nourishing foods… so why would you be any different? You aren’t!

The more you put your needs first, the more energy/time/love you have to spill out to your family and friends.

It’s like the oxygen masks on the airplanes where they remind you to put on your mask first. If you’re out of oxygen you won’t be able to help anyone else. You’re advised to make sure your body has what it needs so that you can help out elsewhere.

I not only encourage you to be in a loving and romantic relationship with yourself, but I’m also sharing 12 resources to support you with this mindset shift and self-nourishing behavior.

Because you my friend, are worth it!

Here are 12 simple ways to bring in the self-love:

1. Have me in your ear, encouraging you.

This is a pep talk I recorded for you for any time you are feeling down. Play it over and over when you need a pick me up and someone to remind you how great you are (because you are!).

Listen Here: A Pep Talk for Feeling Overwhelmed, Behind, or off Your Path

2. Energy protection.

Energy protection is the biggest form of self-love! It’s saying “I’m not going to feel drained by emotions and energy that doesn’t belong to me!”

Here is a great meditation to learn more about energetic cords and how to cut them:

Listen Here: Is Cord Cutting Total BS?

3. Energy protection at work.

Protecting your personal energy anywhere you are is important. But we all know work, even as a solo entrepreneur, can be draining.

If you are connecting with people in person, over the phone, online… your energy is interacting (energy doesn’t know time or space).

Here is a great podcast episode about how to protect your energy at work:

Listen Here: How To Protect Your Energy At Work And Avoid Feeling Depleted

4. Cleanse your energy regularly.

Cleansing your energy is just as important as protecting it. In fact, cleansing it first helps you seal only good energy in before you put on your energetic boundaries.

I’ve recorded free meditations to clear each of the 7 chakras. Try it anytime your energy feels stuck, in the morning to set up your day with a clean slate, or any time you can fit this in –  your energy will thank you!

Find the meditations here:  7 FREE Meditations to Clear, Repair, and Align Your Chakras

Note: If you’re an annual or seasonal member of Mastery & Ascension, you will find a full chakra clearing meditation in your account.

5. Nourish your physical body.

There is no shortage of ways to give your body nourishment and no “one-size-fits-all” approach to it.

I will say that I have found that if I start my morning in the healthiest way possible, it carries out to the rest of my day.

One of the ways I personally do that is with Organifi. It’s a green drink and I take it each morning and it helps me choose healthier foods throughout the day.

I’ve also discovered that when I feel down, I’m more drawn to the foods that are not as good for me.

It’s helpful to think about how you can use your intuition and chakra colors to support your food choices.

I talk about it in this podcast:

Listen Here: How to Use Chakra Colors in Your Biz, Life, and Food Choices

6. Detoxing Your Body.

There are many ways to detox, but sauna therapy is one of my favorites because it feels relaxing and “spa-like”.

Infrared Saunas have been rising in popularity the past few years because of their ability to support detoxification and cell renewal through the type of heat waves they omit.

The infrared sauna’s claim to fame is the immunity support, potential weight loss by stimulating your metabolism, and the relaxation factor.

You can go to a physical location, buy one for your home, and they also have portable ones if space is an issue.

I’m loving this one because it’s portable and you can use it anywhere:

See it on Amazon 

7. Mental detox.

While the infrared sauna (or other methods) may help your physical detox, mental detoxing is just as important.

Meditation and *gasp* a break from social media and the news… can do wonders.

What if you add just 15 minutes of quiet to your day? No screen time, no noise unless it’s relaxing music. A true brain break.

Try it and see!

8. Rose scent to add self-love into your life:

The scent of rose is said to be uplifting and bring about feelings of comfort and love.

You can bring these feelings of love into your life by diffusing rose-scented oil, adding rose essential oils to your bath, buying roses, planting a rose bush, and even using rose water in your daily routine. See it on Amazon

Bringing rose scents into your life can also support your heart chakra. It just smells of self-love.

 

9. Place rose quartz near you.

If you don’t want to diffuse rose oil or buy roses, having heart-shaped rose quartz can also bring in those feelings of love.

You can get a small one to carry with you or a larger stone to keep at your desk or by your bedside.

I’ve even known people to sleep with crystals under their bed and what better way to sleep than by feeling loved.

Here are some options from Amazon and you can also support small businesses by purchasing rose quartz on Etsy.

10. Movement.

Movement is such an easy way to add self-love to your life.

Our bodies need to move it, move it! It keeps us from getting stiff, supports flexibility as we age, stimulates the mind, decreases stress… well you know that we NEED to move.

Make it a priority every day by trying:

  • Yoga Classes, either in-person or online.
  • Cranking up the music and dancing (extra points if you sing into a pretend microphone).
  • Walking outside, preferably around some trees but anything will help you move.
  • Stretching in between tasks is also a way to add some movement and get your energy flowing.

Bottom line, get that stuck energy moving while supporting your physical body!

11. Stop being a broke healer.

I say this with love because I was a broke healer and I know firsthand how it feels.

But I found my way out of it and have helped countless others do the same.

In this podcast episode, I share how to do it and give you a “stop being a broke healer” challenge.

This is self-love. To say you are worth more and deserve more is serious self-love.

Listen Here: Bust Through Being a Broke Energy Healer Challenge

12. Connect to other gentle, “light” minded people on the “woo spectrum” with M&A.

I would be remiss if I didn’t add personal connection to this list.

The Mastery & Ascension membership is there to not only give you access to all my meditations and self-support tools but also to connect you to other “light” minded people to whom you can bring your “woo” highs and lows too without judgment.

It’s a space where all members are learning and growing and I’m so proud of what a supportive environment it has become.

If you’d like to explore the membership, you can find more information here:

Mastery & Ascension Membership

Bonus Self-Love!

If you want to feel even more empowered in bringing the self-love, I have the book for you – Pussy: A Reclamation.

This book can be life-changing and life-affirming. It not only takes you back through history, through patriarchy, but also into really loving yourself, loving your body, loving your pleasure, and ultimately feeling totally empowered.

Because as women we are not taught to love ourselves and instead we often do the opposite… look for flaws.

I highly recommend it to you. Get it from the library, online, or anywhere you can get your hands on it.

See it on Amazon

This list is by no means exhaustive. What feels good to you? A walk in nature? A nap in the middle of the day? Your favorite chocolate?

Pamper yourself, not just on occasion but develop that way of being.

Listening to your favorite podcast, calling a friend, taking an Epsom salt bath, it doesn’t have to be elaborate.

Put yourself first so you can shine your light… inspiring others to shine theirs too.

Are you feeling inspired to put yourself first? Try committing to at least one act of self-love today and share it with me on IG @EmilyAarons. I’d love to hear from you.

Why Business Coaches and eCourses Fail You

Why Business Coaches and eCourses Fail You

I’m pissed about something today and you might be too! Let me explain…

Recently, I was thinking about business coaches and their online courses. What’s crazy is something like 94% of students don’t complete their online courses – I wondered WHY???

My guides showed me a clock with all of its parts and that’s when it hit me!

What MOST online business coaches and course creators are giving you is a box full of clock parts (all the parts of a successful business) and an instruction booklet (their course) and expecting that you’ll be able to assemble a clock (just like theirs), based on their simple instructions.

At some point, very early on, a part of your soul goes, WTF?

Maybe you internalize it thinking something is wrong with YOU instead of the course.

THE PROBLEM, and this really fires me up, is that maybe THEY built a clock and made 6-figures (or whatever they’re telling you), and now you’re supposed to build a clock (like theirs) super fast and make loads of money like them!

GAH! No. NOOO!! STOP!!

Have you ever stopped to consider that’s THEIR life path, but what if YOUR life path ISN’T building a clock at all?

What if you’re here, in this lifetime, to build a damn rocket ship, or a telescope, or a flying electric car…you get me?

Someone else’s parts and instructions fail you every time because that’s THEIR life path…and you, my friend, are not on the same path.

YOU are not broken, their plan just isn’t YOURS…

Likely, that’s also why you’re always feeling so freaking OVERWHELMED by it!

And overwhelm kills forward action EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I honestly hope my point isn’t getting lost in metaphors so here it is more clearly:

You’ve been raised to follow instructions and raise your hand, seek help outside, and NOT to trust the wisdom from within…

But as a Business Coach for 4 years, I can tell you, to get transformative LASTING results – that model is going to fail you. Maybe not immediately, but when you are ready for that big leap in your business, it can’t come from WITHOUT.

You need to seek help from INSIDE!

It’s time to toss out those business models that promise you they have the answers FOR you, in favor of a ONE-SIZE-FITS-YOU program so that you can remember how to look inward for answers and guidance AND get real HUMAN support when you’re feeling a little lost on your path.

Sound good?

That’s exactly what I teach and preach because I, like you, followed someone else’s strategies and ideas until I couldn’t take the “failure” any longer…I threw out their model in favor of following MY inner guidance and so far so f’ing good!

I’ve learned a thing or two from both being a coach and a student and I want to give you some helpful hints to consider before you invest in that next program or coach.

Questions to Ask before you leap:

  • Are they giving you their formula or are they teaching tools to connect to your own authentic formula?
  • Is there a transformation involved in their program?
  • If you know people who have taken it, ask how they were before they took it and what happened after? (Make sure you’re not solely paying for networking because that might not be what you’re after).
  • Are there actionable steps that you can apply to your business NOW?
  • Is it a balance of “inner work” and business principles? (You want both!)
  • Does it fit your industry? Let’s face it. If you’re “woo” your “woo”. If you invest in a coach or program that doesn’t have inner growth included, your soul is going to feel it.

The key to investing in an effective Business Coach or eCourse is to make sure that you can apply it as you learn and build a strong foundation as you go – from the inside.

Most people don’t talk about this, but you need to build the foundation both inside with your beliefs about safety and success and THEN scale your business.

 

 

 

 

 

 

It explains why 70% of lottery winners go bankrupt! They didn’t learn how to earn the money and manage it as they grew so when things start to go wrong they can’t figure out how to fix it. They don’t have that skill set to fall back on.

If you don’t know how to go within and follow your inner guidance –well, there’s no shortage of examples of people hitting it big and then losing everything.

If you don’t have a solid foundation, it will crumble when your post goes viral or you finally have email subscribers signing up at 50 per day but no one buys anything or signs up for your services.

You never want to feel disillusioned by your hard work. Like you bought into a system that wasn’t designed for you and forgot to BE true to yourself.

“You can fail at something you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance doing what you love.” Jim Carrey

Internet Trolls & Healing Your Fear of Judgement!

Internet Trolls & Healing Your Fear of Judgement!

Spoiler Alert!

The purpose of this blog is to simply point out how when you’re in ALIGNMENT with your life’s purpose and passions, the judgment of others doesn’t even matter.

It’s MY purpose is to shine my light so that others can shine theirs too. Simply put: I help you so you can help others!

In order to help others, I have to be massively VISIBLE.

 

Being massively visible means I attract some occasional unwanted attention!

TRIGGER WARNING: I invite YOU to consider your own fears of visibility, being judged for who you are, fears of being an imposter, or being the “weirdo” in the room…

A PERSONAL TRUE STORY: Just last week, a troll on the internet went out of their way to rip me a new one. Here’s what happened and how I handled it…and how YOU can face your fears of judgment too!

Here’s some of what they said:

“You’re not psychic”
“You’re full of shit”
“You give horrible advice”
“What you is unethical”
“All you care about are followers”
“You should quit your job to be at home with your children”
“Your work is bullshit”
“You only care about putting yourself first”
So, maybe you’re wondering why on earth would someone say such things?…

Keep reading…

Truth be told…If this conversation happened when I was newly visible online and still a bit insecure in my work, these would have BROKEN ME into a puddle, I would have strongly considered quitting, I would have definitely lost sleep over it…

HOWEVER, when I heard those words last week I felt…N O T H I N G.

In the conversation, I didn’t get defensive.

I didn’t react.

I didn’t get angry.

I didn’t throw insults back…

I listened and occasionally said “that’s really interesting feedback, tell me more about that” or “well this certainly says a lot about you”…

(Feel free to borrow those if you need to!)

But here’s WHY I felt nothing…

It’s because NONE of those words are true AND I’ve healed those old wounds of needing to be liked by everyone!

The TRUTH is that the work I do is helping thousands of people and there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t see that karma return in POSITIVE ways.

It’s kind of like someone making fun of me for being too tall…I’m 5’2″ so that’s just silly nonsense…same reaction with this.

So here’s the part I didn’t tell you…

That “troll on the internet” who said all of those things was actually a close family member. We were simply chatting about plans for Thanksgiving when he unloaded…

What I said to him was that while I appreciate his honest feedback that he clearly had been holding back for years.

I’m in a place in my life where I have zero tolerance for people in my life who don’t love, honor and appreciate me for ME.

I realize to some people reading this you may have a judgment about me or him, but consider this…

The reason why HE said all of those things means nothing about me and EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM.

Did he say it to hurt me? No.

But as we know, hurt people hurt people…he’s clearly hurting in some way, and that’s HIS work to do.

I forgive him and release him from my life right now. Maybe one day that will change but for now, I’m not available.

And for all you scrollers…the moral of my story is…

When you align yourself to your true calling and life purpose, and stay TRUE to your divine alignment, IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT ANYONE ELSE THINKS!!

And always remember what Michelle Obama said: “When they go low, we go high.”

If you’re getting the side-eye from any friends, family, or co-workers please trust, they are NOT your people.

“True belonging doesn’t require that we change who we are, it requires that we BE who we are.” ~Brene Brown

Let your intuition make you MONEY!

Let your intuition make you MONEY!

I know how important MONEY is in people’s life.

I’d love to help you unlock your intuition and use it as a tool to EXPLODE your business and magnetize your ideal soulmate clients, but let’s take this one step at a time…

Q: How does using intuition grow my business?

A: Just for a moment consider the fact that some of the world’s most successful business owners (Oprah, Elon Musk, Arianna Huffington, and Ray Dalio to name a few) all attribute their success to using meditation and trusting their INTUITION!

ASK YOURSELF: What would be possible if I could 100% trust my inner compass?

Here’s their secret…

Even as little as ONE MINUTE of deep breathing can take a bad day and make it good…Why?

Because it moves your ATTENTION. And we all know we ARE where our attention IS.

Meaning, if you’re feeling overwhelmed by your day, your business (or lack thereof) and you keep spiraling, your day and your energy spirals too.

AND…The more frequently you connect, the easier it becomes to receive messages, PLUS your energy vibration becomes YUMMY!! #yourvibeattractsyourtribe

Q: “My problem is I don’t have enough TIME to meditate”

My best advice that I share with students from Mastery & Ascension is start with ONE MINUTE a day and keep track.

In fact, inside Mastery & Ascension, every member gets a tracker to make tracking easy but if you aren’t a member yet, you can use a notebook or a calendar. They even have some apps to help you track habits as well.

Commit to creating the space to complete a one-minute meditation daily and in time increase your time, keep track of not only your meditations but your successes AND CELEBRATE!
