A lesson in Bringing My Intuitive Mind Body Spirit True Self to All that I do
Guess what? I have a coach. Probably no surprise there.
I am a life coach, and I have a life coach.
I am a firm believer therapists should have therapists, coaches should have coaches, and trainers should have trainers. It just makes sense, doesn’t it?
While talking with my coach the other day, I realized that I have been censoring myself. I am a spiritual and intuitive person. I have been editing the spirituality and intuition out of my words not to offend anyone.
I was a holistic healer for years, and it was my mission to help others get in touch with their intuition. So, the good news/bad news is that:
I get a little Intuitive “woo woo.”
If you are not familiar with that term, it is a term that people use for more spiritual things. It describes things that are on the fringes of the mainstream.
Perhaps you are wondering if you are intuitive. Check out 10 Things Highly Intuitive People Do Differently by The Creativity Post to find out.
I feel naked right now writing this blog post.
It feels like someone has ripped away a cloak that I have been wearing to cover up my intuitive true self, and it has laid me bare.
For instance, I am very in tune with the energetic system. There is a series of electromagnetic fields around the body. They are called chakras.
Whether I like it or not, this is how information usually comes to me. I feel it in my chakras, or I sense that someone else’s chakras may be affected. I feel it when things are stuck in my energetic field and when things are stuck in other people’s energetic fields.
It is time to let the cat out of the bag. I have to be me. It is time to be authentic and let it flow.
I don’t mention it to many people because I am afraid that they won’t believe me or will think I am crazy.
My coach told me, “Liz, you just need to bring the intuitive woo!”
It made sense to me at that moment and not a moment before.
After all, everyone is always talking about being authentic. My woo is a massive part of who I am. I can’t deny it anymore. I might wish I was different, but the simple truth is – this is me.
While helping my clients find and be their true selves is a huge part of my mission…perhaps helping my coaching clients hear their intuitive true selves should still be part of my mission too.
I also love crystals and rocks. The crystals and stones that I lean on the most now are citrine, carnelian, and moonstone. Each one has a specific purpose, and I have been meditating with them for some time now.
They are enormously powerful in their ability to re-calibrate the vibration of our electromagnetic fields or chakras. After a short meditation with my rocks and crystals, I can sense the change in my energetic system.
I rarely share this with my clients or others, but I feel I might do them a disservice by not sharing my intuitive true self.
I am also a big believer in the mind-body-spirit connection. It is almost impossible to do any work on yourself if you don’t have all three on board.
You can exercise all you want, but you won’t be able to lose any weight until you get your mind on board. If your mind doesn’t believe that you can lose weight – you won’t.
You might try to change your mind about something, but if your spirit is not in accordance with the change and you hold trauma in your body about it – you won’t change your mind.
Intuitive of Moon Cycles
I am a follower of the moon cycle and the seasons. During the moon cycle, some things are just easier to do.
The new moon is a great time to set intentions. If you are trying to accomplish something in your life, this is an excellent time to get clear about it and set those intentions.
If you are trying to let go of something, the full moon is an optimum time to do it. It is a time when you can release all the things that are no longer helping you anymore.
The full moon is also a time to count your blessings and pay homage to all the things that you have accomplished or manifested in your life during the last moon cycle.
I also believe that we can fight against the seasons, and things are much more challenging, or we can give into them, and things will flow much more smoothly.
The spring is a beautiful time to start things. It is an excellent time to plant those seeds of the things we want to see grow and bloom in our lives.
The summer is a time for maintaining those things. It is a time for care and feeding of the things we planted in the spring to make sure they continue to grow and bloom.
We pick and prune the things we have planted to make sure they are healthy and thriving.
In the fall, it is time to harvest. It is a time to reap what we have sown. We can acknowledge the bountiful nature of our hard work and get the benefits of our labor.
The winter is a time for reflection and solitude. It is a dark and dead time. When I buck against this and continually wonder why I am a little down in the winter, I realize it is supposed to be this way for me.
I like to be on my own in the winter and take time away to take stock of the previous year. I journal to document what worked, what didn’t work, and what I want to differently next year.
I feel a bit like the hermit in the dead of winter. It is not a depression, but I can’t get the same feeling as I do in the spring when all the leaves start to bud.
I must go through all these seasons each year. I feel them all deeply. I acknowledge them and their part in my feelings, productivity, and mindset.
The Intuitive Lesson in Being My True Self
So, what started as a general coaching session turned into a lesson in authenticity for me.
My question for you is, “What is something that you are censoring about yourself?”
Do you know anyone who is hiding their gifts? Is it time for them to bring it out? Are they doing others a disservice by not sharing their talents with the world?
Is there something you keep under your cloak to make others feel more comfortable? Are there things you don’t share because you are afraid of what people might think?
If so, what would happen if you let the cat out of the bag?
