Most everyone has experienced that gut ‘knowing’ that something feels kind of ‘off’. Maybe there’s no logical reason to feel this way. Maybe, in fact, everything appears to be fine. But still, there is that knowing in ‘gut’ that makes you wonder. Some call it a hunch. some even call it Female Intuition. Maybe there’s more than one reason to associate these feelings with ‘female’.
Did you know that in metaphysical circles, the lower gut is associated with the heart of the Divine Mother/Feminie energies/Gaia? In chakra terms…it’s the lower 3rd chakra, upper 2nd chakra. And if we really tune in to the sensations there, we can open to our deepest intuition.
Clairsentience (clair-clear sentience-feeling) is a gift we all possess. We may have forgotten about it temporarily, but it’s easier than you might think, to remember. Clairsentience is one of the three types of intuition including clairvoyance (clear seeing) and clairaudience (clear hearing). In the past, Clairvoyance and Clairaudience have been hailed as the two most prized types of intuition and have been regarded as special ‘gifts’
But the field of metaphysics has evolved. It is now accepted that we are all Clairsentient. And Clairsentience is the basis of Clairvoyance and Clairaudience.
Feeling the sensations in our body is the key that unlocks the deeper gifts.
Sensations and Intuition are intimately connected.
Imagine an Iceberg as a Metaphor. The top of the iceberg represents our conscious mind; all that we are aware of.
The waterline between the top and lower part of the iceberg, is our Imagination.
The lower part of the iceberg, the part under the waterline, represents our unconscious imagination.
Clairsentient ‘knowing’ arises from deep down in the lower part of the iceberg.
If you’d like to develop your Intuition, here’s a great starting practice.
Sit in a comfortable chair with your feet on the floor to connect and ground with Mother Earth. And relax. Just notice your breath as it comes in and goes out for a little bit.
Now, remember a time when something didn’t ‘feel right’. You may have felt puzzled or upset When you’ve remembered that time, go ahead and relax down into where in your body, if you could imagine a place between your throat and lowest part of your spine, where you imagine the ‘doesn’t feel right’ is located. Just let your imagination take over and draw you to that place. This is going to be the right place. It always is.
Now just allow your attention to focus on the sensations in that place…they may be very subtle. If they had a quality, would you imagine the sensations to be moving or still, sharp or dull, heavy or light, etc. Just allow your attention to go there and check-in with the sensations.
This is similar to when a man asks a woman…’tell me more about what’s going on with you?’
In the same way, your Mind (the masculine) is enquiring of the Sensations (the feminine)…and really desiring to know.
It’s fun to just relax and let the Imagination free flow and bring forward more unconscious wisdom and intuition via the sensations.
Because it hasn’t been habitual for many of us to tune into body sensations…the above practice may be different for you.
I’ve noticed that , when coached through this practice for the first time, most everyone can open their Imagination and ‘tune in’.
The next step will be to allow the intuitive knowing about why something didnt feel right, to bubble up from way underneath the iceberg.
One this knowing comes to consciousness, it’s a lightbulb moment. Dots get connected. It all starts to make sense’. You’re going to love that lightbulb moment!
One has to experience this to know how it feels. The above will get you started.
Let me know how you do with this practice or if you have any questions. Once you notice the quality of the sensations, you’ll want to learn how to open to the deep intuition…where so much wonderful wisdom resides.
What a loving way this is to be with ourselves!! And how exciting!
I’m really wanting to know how the above goes for you and if you have questions or would like to take the next steps. Please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what happens!! And if you’d like to be coached through this, I’d be happy to do that at no charge.
