Hello everyone. Carolyn McGee, Intuitive Healer, Coach, Channel and Guide here for your Tip of the Week Video. It is the week of a March 22nd, 2020 and I was guided to use the Archangel Michael cards by Doreen Virtue.
And the card that is stepping forward is Your Inner Guidance is Real and Trustworthy. Really look at the image of this card, how protected the woman is, and that she is holding a book in her hands. And that’s truly what it is. That knowledge, the information that we need to live our lives authentically, powerfully, and clearly is literally in our hands.
And of course, our hands are an extension of our body. So we are being invited to tap into our own intuition and allow in that information that is in your hands. Ask your angels and guides to write down the information and to help you write it down.
Anybody who’s followed me for a while knows that I am a big advocate of journaling. It’s very powerful. Just take the time to write down your thoughts, get a piece of paper and just freehand. Do automatic writing or something that’s going to allow that energy to flow through you and become part of your own consciousness and your own awareness.
And why is this important? Especially now with this pandemic that we’ve got worldwide, especially here in the United States, it’s really important to learn how to trust our intuition, to trust that divine guidance that’s right in your hands and not fall into fear.
I’m not suggesting that we do risky behavior. I am not suggesting that we don’t wash our hands, that we don’t take all of those precautions, practice that six feet of of physical distancing. I’m not a fan of the social distancing the terminology because I would never suggest that we stop communicating with people.
There’s such beautiful ways to communicate that we don’t need to be face to face, although I do prefer it. One of the things that we can do in this time is learn to trust ourselves so that we can differentiate when is it fear, when is it in intuition? There’s a big difference in between the two.
We each have voices that are aspects of ourselves, voice of intuition and the voices of our angels. Those are higher level voices that work through us to help guide us on our life’s path, to help us make empowered decisions and to stop second guessing ourselves.
Now the voices like fear, resistance, sabotage, the inner critic (I call the inner critic my mean girl). Those voices are there to keep us safe in the only way they know how to, oftentimes they came on when we were young children of because of a trauma or because of something that we couldn’t understand.
They came on to try to keep us safe, to keep us small, to keep us from doing things that could recreate that trauma, whatever it was. And remember, when these voices come online, we’re young children. We don’t have the intuitive or the logical skills to understand why something might’ve happened, it is just our systems are overwhelmed. Something outside of our control has happened that has shut us down and made us afraid to repeat the same mistake or be in a similar situation.
So, to keep us safe, that voice is going to get really tricky. That voice is going to become even more and more subtle. As you catch on to something that it’s doing, it will bury itself even deeper. So how can you tell the difference? One of the ways is to feel energy in your body. You know, if you put your hands on your lower belly area, the first, second chakra area and if you breathe deeply down into that area you will feel it.
Feel the energy settle. And as it settles, ask what energy is in there. Is it fear? Is the fear appropriate for the current situation or is it anticipation, anticipation of something good to come? Because fear and anticipation, the energy that rising, that bubbling sensation, that often happens in our second and third chakras, the feeling in our physical body is very similar. So as we take the time to ask our bodies and to take those breaths and to wait to hear or feel the results, then it becomes clearer, which it is and if the fear is legitimate.
We are experiencing a lot of fear right now, but what we don’t want to do is get into the energy of being paralyzed. We don’t want to step into that fight, flight and freeze energy that we can fall into.
Just like a rabbit that’s sitting there and sees a predator and stops and freezes. We can do that to ourselves too, where we get paralyzed and we can’t make a decision. We can’t feel the body signals our own intuition. We can’t hear those divine downloads because we are in such shock. That is really what it is when we’re in that freeze energy.
If you go back to the caveman times, the way we were designed was to freeze when we had to and then completely come out of it and move on when it was safe or we would run away and our hearts would be pounding. But once we got away from the danger, all of that cortisol would settle out of our bodies and we would continue on with our lives.
Now with all of these artificial stressors, and again, I am not minimizing what’s going on in the world right now, but our bodies are conditioned to go into that deep fear, in many cases, much bigger than what the reality is.
What I am inviting you to do is to take those breaths. I always loved three. That’s a powerful, magical number. Take those three breaths, put your hand on wherever that fear is. Most times it’s in the lower Chakras. Sometimes it might show up in your throat, but just put your hand there and ask it if it’s real and ask it if it’s real for right now or if it is a reaction to something being perceived as similar to a past event.
And if you have any questions, please reach out to me. I am going to be doing Facebook live in my group all week long. So I joined me. I am going to be doing a pick a card on Monday and Facebook lives the rest of the week. So join the group. It’s Enhance Your Intuition on Facebook. Would love to see you there and connect deeper. Bye. Bye for now.
