Medical intuition does not replace doctors, lab work, conventional medicine—and so on. *Medical intuition should never be relied on alone as a diagnostic tool, but I do believe that it can be valuable in helping with emotional, physical, or spiritual issues.
It is very important to differentiate Healing from curing. They are not the same thing: a cure occurs when the physical progression of an illness is controlled or stopped.
But curing a physical illness does not always mean that the emotional/psychological stresses that contributed to the illness are diminished or “cured”.
Medical intuition can resemble mainstream mindfulness practices. We can argue that we already use medical intuition daily. Medical intuition can involve readings and getting information from guides and energy fields. Intuition is a valuable way of receiving self-love, self-acceptance, protection, and strength.
The more in tune people are with their own bodies, the easier it will be for them to work with me towards healing them. Improving intuitive connections is an important part of every session.
- Fear. Rather than allowing us to trust the universe, God, our bodies, and our own intuition, fear causes self-doubt and a desire to control. In turn, this creates tension in the body, blocking the flow of energy both inside the body and between ourselves and others.
- Body Disconnection. Intuitive information is received through words and images in our heads as well as physical and emotional symptoms. Without connection to our body, we are cutting off a vital source of information. Relaxation is key, and meditation can be a great tool.
- Perfectionism. There is no right or wrong way as long as your motives are sincere. Don’t judge the information; just let it flow. When I started, I missed so much great information because I thought I had to do it “right.”
- Substituting someone else’s intuition for their own. I always warn my clients about this. Ask questions, do your own research, and get as many opinions as you need to, even if you are afraid of being annoying. It is very important to consult with others—we aren’t always our own best judge—but if you feel something strongly, stick to your guns.
- Anger. Illness can bring about anger and feelings of victimization. Anger can be motivating in the short-term. In the long run, it can foster rumination over the past and stress about the future. Anger is isolating and brings feelings of hopelessness. It cuts us off from our bodies. If you can’t be grounded and live in the present, you can’t listen to what your body needs to heal presently.
- Bias and assumptions. I personally like to know close to nothing about someone before a reading. The more I know, the more I’m prone to making assumptions, which gets in the way of my work.
Physical issues—even physical “accidents”—have a spiritual and emotional component. Our thoughts, emotions, body, and spirit are all connected. Emotional and spiritual aspects of their lives may impact their health.
It is about listening and trusting—and not ignoring what you hear and feel. If you keep hearing the voice in your head saying that the issue isn’t going away on its own, pay attention. Don’t push aside inflammation or joint pain as “just aging.”
Going to the doctor or dentist isn't fun, and some people find it frightening, so they avoid it, which can cause even greater problems in the long run.
