How To Get Intuitive Guidance In Times Of Stress
During times of stress, when you most need to access your intuitive guidance, it can be complicated to get.
With emotions, mental exhaustion, and sometimes downright just physical exhaustion getting in the way, it can be challenging to receive the clear, accurate cues from your intuition or from Spirit.
Many intuitives find it hard to “read themselves" for this reason.
When your emotions cloud the vision, seeing the vision clearly is not always easy.
If you want something bad enough, need something bad enough, or feel something strong enough - your own desires, thoughts, and emotions can get in the way of your ability to clearly channel anything.
If you’ve ever tried to “get guidance” for yourself during a break-up, a job falling apart, or a financial disaster, you know exactly what I’m talking about here.
You haven’t lost your intuitive abilities forever, but they temporarily become unavailable at times.
How can you get your intuitive gifts back in a time of stress?
1. Calm down
First, calm down. If you feel like you need a break, you need one.
It’s not a luxury to take a timeout - it’s an emergency.
Overwhelmed, overrun, over exhausted and overworked, you need to step back and go for a walk. Or sit down and drink a cappuccino. Or take a breather and give your dog a proper brushing. Or your nails a good painting.
Take a timeout, calm down and breathe it out.
One of the first things required to receive accurate intuitive guidance is focus.
To get focus, you need space and clarity from the situation.
Take a time out, and when doing this, I like to use essential oils to reset my emotional loci.
Depending on how worked up I am, I enjoy using blends like White Angelica or SARA from Young Living (more on how to sign-up here), and I also like grounding scents and florals to stabilize my emotions, paired with citrus' to uplift my mood.
2. Clear your energy
Now that you’ve separated yourself from the stress and worry producing scenario - if even for just an hour or a couple of days - it’s time to clear your energy.
Essential oils will do that, as mentioned above, and you can do this in a variety of ways.
Taking a bath with salts which can attract and pull away low energy from your body.
Don’t have a tub? Take a shower while using a salt scrub.
This is called a psychic bath, and it’s a way to pull away clouding emotions, thoughts, and energy from your aura, so you have a greater ability to think clearly and tune in.
3. Double check
If you're getting a message you're unclear about, you can also tune in for guidance using oracle cards.
Even if you normally receive information without any divination tools, when you feel stressed and are unsure of your own internal clarity, it’s a great alternative to have a way to receive clear guidance that is outside of yourself in the physical world.
With oracle cards, or even a pendulum, you can separate yourself from the message because the message is coming in as separate from yourself.
Just having a physical tool can provide significant relief as it allows for a two-point cross-check system, giving more certainty to any choice that is made.
4. Reach out
Sometimes, even a master intuitive needs to ask for help.
Sometimes, even the counselor needs to be counseled.
In times of emotional, physical or mental stress, if you can’t get your own clarity, reach out to another intuitive for a reading or a coaching session.
Not only will you receive clear guidance, but you’ll likely receive it from an alternate external perspective. Having other perspectives when trying to understand and navigate a situation is always helpful in deciding clearly what to do, or not do, next.
5. Deep Breath
And finally, you don’t have to have it all figured out.
Even if you are the professional.
Even though intuitive and spiritual guidance can be helpful, always reaching into the psychic realms to understand the physical experience you are experiencing can prevent you from fully immersing yourself in learning lesson at hand.
Sometimes, the best thing you can do to solve something is to fully connect with this experience to learn and grow from it.
And then, once things settle down, once the experience is complete, you can then tune-in for guidance on why it all happened and the meaning of it.
So, if you are temporarily out of the wind to carry the sails of your intuitive ship, just take some time to experience the ocean.
Soon, the wind will pick up, and you’ll be off and moving again once more.
