7 Myths About Intuition (That Just Aren’t True)
I 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??):
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.
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!
