Following Your Intuition to Your Life’s Purpose 

 

 When developing your intuition, you may often find yourself against the grain of society. You may leave a job everyone else in their rational minds would kill for. You may follow a dream that seems impossible. As you honor your inner knowingness, others may not be privy to the divine guidance you are following. Know that there is a good reason for this. 

Albert Einstein said it best when he said: “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.” The world around us is often full of people who live their life by rational logic, weighing statistical chances with decision making for a safety net of a future. The truth is though that no matter how much you plan, or take the path that seems the safest, there are no guarantees that things will go as planned. Flexibility is called for as we live in a Creation that is still happening. Things are constantly changing and to pigeon hole yourself into a certain lifestyle or plan goes against your very nature as a child of the universe. The truth is, living from your intuitive self is your direct hotline to an all-knowing, all-being mind. We may not understand completely why we feel we must follow a certain path or action when we follow our intuition, but one thing is certain. A higher power definitely does understand the bigger picture, and having faith in our intuitive guidance is the first step in co-creating a life lived to the fullest. 

Many people would agree that following your intuition sounds good in theory but when putting this notion into practice, it may not be super clear. There are many things you can do to clear your mind and develop your intuition.

As someone who once had a cushy corporate position, drove a luxury car, and had every material perk one could ask for, I found out the hard way that following that path was not the key to happiness. I was operating from the rational, servant mind and at the end of the day, materialism is only an illusion of security and, to top it all off, my job wasn’t my true passion. If your situation isn’t fueling your passion, chances are that you missed your calling. The good news is that every day that you are still breathing, you have the opportunity to live passionately. When operating from your intuitive mind, your sacred gift from God, your life becomes magical, meaningful, and full of wonder. Never lose your divine birth right to co-create a meaningful, rewarding life. 

Manifestation Begins with Intention

The power of clear intentions bring about more precise manifestations. Every manifestation starts with a thought. Setting clear intentions with your thoughts is a powerful way to bring about your desires more quickly. From Jim Carrey, to Will Smith, to Oprah, many successful people in this current day and age have talked about how they set clear intentions about what goals they want to bring into their lives before they even begin to try to achieve it.

Before I ever wrote a page, I set out the intention to write a book with my thoughts. I did this visualization process all the time in the business world and was successful at it, so I took this process to a new venture. I pictured what it would feel like to bring about a spiritually-minded book. I pictured what it would feel like to hold it in my hand, to be interviewed about it, and to have a concise, tangible book where I could share my experiences and thoughts on spirituality, law of attraction, and the afterlife.

The manifestation process is following up on your inner guidance from your intentions for your desired manifestation. It seemed like a little amount of effort added up to huge transformations over time as the universe clearly responded to the intentions I set. I was connected with thought leaders in the field of publishing and spiritual teaching to affirm I was on the right path. Less than a year later, I have most of my book written. My intention has been manifesting into form, and it has been the most rewarding process.

This process can used to manifest in many areas of life. Be a scientist and try it for yourself. Next time you wake up in the morning, set clear intentions for the day you would like to manifest ahead. Visualize how it will feel at the end of the day to have had the experiences you desire for yourself. Whether you set the intention to connect with helpful people, to flow through your schedule with ease, or to manifest abundance with your sales, your intention in the morning is your way to co-create the day ahead with the universe. Follow your guidance and go with the flow, and watch your manifestations unfold.

Synchronicity: Notice Your Answered Prayers

20140813-164231.jpg

Inviting synchronicity into your life is to notice the meaningful coincidences you experience. Synchronistic moments are answers to our prayers. Need a new job? Coincidentally, you met someone who knows the perfect person who could help you right at the right moment. Need a new car? No problem. You walk down the road and see a for sale by owner sign on a car for the perfect price.

I have literally experienced these things. All I had to do is ask God and the angels, and trust that these things would happen. I asked for a clear sign and divine assistance, then I was open to whatever presented itself. If you outline how your prayers should be answered, you may miss the boat. Be open to new things and trust that these coincidences are something the universe knows will be perfect for you, even if its not exactly what you expected.

Living the Law of Attraction

20140705-221742.jpg

Albert Einstein posed a question meant for us to question the very nature of our existence. “Is the Universe a friendly place?” Based on what we know about quantum physics and the law of attraction, I believe we can answer yes, the universe is a friendly place. As someone who has manifested both miracles and problems into her life, I can say without a shred of doubt that the universe is willing to bring you anything you wish. Even though I have manifested horrible things, I have also manifested seemingly impossible good fortune.

Whatever your focus is on becomes manifested into material form. Belief makes the unbelievable tangible. Want to see an angel? After continuously focusing on my belief in a spiritual experience, I finally experienced many amazing things. Worried about a car being repossessed? Worries can block all abundance to help pay for that car, so the universe helped there as well…. Like earning thousands the day after it’s repossession. A little too ironic, right? Focused on abundance and a huge bank account? I’ve been there too and used my riches to share with my family, friends, and causes I cared about. Worried about a bad grade? The focus will make you late or miss class due to unforeseen circumstances no matter how hard you studied. Want to talk to that spiritual guru you’ve been listening to on the radio? No problem. The universe brought a phone call to me through mutual friends. Want that reading by that medium so in demand she has a 4 year waiting list and charges a ridiculous fee? No problem. Belief you will speak can bring you to that right time right place moment, free of any charge, I may add. Want a paid writing opportunity? A stay-at-home business? Belief will make these things come to you almost effortlessly.

After seeing these patterns in my own life, I can without a doubt say the universe is a friendly place. One spiritual teacher I admire explains that the universe is like an over-eager genie granting your wish before you even say “I wish for”. The universe is granting them by responding to your thoughts. Your thoughts literally manifest everything in your life. Not everyone likes to hear this because it requires taking responsibility for the good and the bad, but it is 100% true.

Thank goodness all manifestations take time and consistent focus and action steps. Emotions can give us clues about whether our thoughts are focused on our highest good or not. Bad feelings about the worries you have will give you previews, like a loving warning before it manifests into form. The other realization that helped is to realize positive loving thoughts are way more powerful than negative ones. However, consistent worry will attract the very things you don’t want.

Realizing this freeing concept that the universe really does want us to have what we need has invited career opportunities, friendships, love, and abundance that I always wanted. Einstein’s intent to leave us exploring this question has given us a whole new understanding of consciousness. Reality can be whatever you would like it to be. Life really can be a dream. There is always a way… even though our feeble human minds cannot see an answer, the divine can. Let the universe do the heavy lifting.

Julie Tour Discusses 5 Simple Steps to Develop Psychic Awareness

My passion is to help people develop their own psychic abilities, re-establishing a personal connection to the divine. If you have not yet had a spiritual experience, it is more than likely your lifestyle keeping you in a certain consciousness. My journey is not the only possible journey, but I have definitely picked up a few things that have tremendously helped my intuition and psychic experiences along the way that I would like to share with you. Please feel free to post any feedback, questions, or tips you have picked up yourself while developing your intuition. Namaste xo.

Psychic Senses: Understanding the Clair-Abilities

There are many different ways to sense a psychic experience. Last year, I found myself unemployed for a month after I graduated college. I left my high-powered, successful position selling insurance and took weeks spending time in nature quietly by myself, taking yoga classes, writing, and meditating.  Taking the time out helped me explore many different ways in which the spirit world contacts us. I found that there are many ways spirit communicates with us if we take the time to notice and listen. Sometimes in this fast track world of information, we often overlook that something we know to be true may be from a psychic awareness. Understanding many different avenues in which spirit communicates with us helps us to bring more goodness into our daily lives by listening to our guides and higher self. I find the more connected I feel, the more loved I feel as well as the more love I am able to share with others. I will speak from my own experiences, but please feel free to share your own, as we are all different.

Clairvoyance: This ability is one of the most popularized in Hollywood. Clairvoyance is when you have clear visions from your spirit guides. While some psychics have these experiences at random, others induce this experience, When in meditative states (sometimes while exercising), I’ve noticed I may have a vision that seems almost like a day dream. Weeks, or months could go by until one day, the exact circumstance I had envisioned came true. Others can have distinct visions of the past, whether in this lifetime or ancient lifetimes. 

When I first realized I could be very visual about my past was when I enrolled in traditional hypnotherapy. I found myself experiencing high anxiety that I wanted to be treated for (but later I realized this had to do with ignoring spirit and my psychic abilities). When the hypnotherapist took me back to my childhood, I could remember everything extremely visually and clearly in that meditative trance. After my sessions completed, I then found I could meditate about past lives in the same way and come out with clear, visual experiences about my ancient past. I had stopped believing in reincarnation going through traditional religious and government education systems. Now, I have no doubts. Often the vision would come first, then after some historical research, I would always back up my findings.

Claircognizant: This ability is often the most unrecognized, as well as the most common psychic experience. The divinely guided ideas are not audible, but a knowingness will be experienced. Before actively pursuing the development of my psychic abilities, many people dubbed me a know-it-all. I have always had this innate ability to have an understanding about a deep topic, but often I could not explain how I got to this conclusion. I often have a ringing in my left ear, and I found I have been experiencing “wisdom downloads” from spirit. I will have ideas pop in my head and they will prove to be very successful.

My School of Business experience definitely speaks to this ability. I was always a group leader in my classes, and often the idea-girl behind many projects. I never did any formal research. I often came up with ideas and worked with people who would then apply the research needed for the business course to back up the idea. I was always confident going into group meetings because I knew I would come up with something beneficial. While other groups and students would research ideas first, then decide, I often did things backwards, and it always paid off. I always received excellent grades when following through on the ideas I received.  I definitely fooled my group members to think I put a lot more research into these ideas as well. Everything worked out in the end.

Another example would be when I just knew my dad was in the room while I was looking through old photos. I started dancing and got really excited. I couldn’t explain it and my roommate and my mother thought I was clinically insane. A year ago, Theresa Caputo, TLC’s Long Island Medium, picked me out of a crowd of 3000 people and confirmed that my dad wanted me to know that he was there when I was dancing around my apartment. Tears ran down my face because I knew in that moment I was truly psychic myself.

Clairalience: Clairalience is experiencing a sense of smell for spirit to communicate with you. An example would be when I smelled my deceased dad’s cologne randomly, when there was no one to be found.

I also found myself smelling cigarette smoke when there would be no logical explanation of where it would be coming from. I have memories as a child spying on my grandmother in her basement while she snuck cigarettes while doing her laundry. Later, without bringing up a word about the experience, a local psychic confirmed that when I smelled cigarettes, it was indeed my grandmother letting me know she was with me.

Clairambience: This ability has to do with the sense of taste without eating a substance. While this ability is something I have yet to experience, many people have.  An example would be tasting your grandmother’s favorite dish randomly. This is a way for your spirit guides to simply say hello.

Clairsentience: Clairsentience is what many refer to as being an “empath”. You can just feel another’s experience. An example would be when you get a feeling you will get a call from someone you know, your phone rings, you look down and it is them. There a millions of examples of being empathic. I often had feelings about when my friends were down, despite their best fake smiles. People have often asked me, how did you know? The truth is, I could feel them.

Clairaudient: Clairaudient is when you hear distinct voices. Sometimes they can sound like your own, or someone who is deceased. The key is to recognize if the voice is coming from your higher self and guides, or the ego. If you hear someone telling you to hurt someone else, that is a sign of mental illness and treatment should be sought after. When you hear a guide tell you to take a different route home, and later you find there was an accident on your usual route, that is divine guidance from your guides. Angels can be experienced as distinct voices or as a lighter version of your own inner voice. Telepathy is when you experience another human being’s voice in your own head. Having a connection like that can sound scary, but really high vibrational energy needs to be exhibited in both parties. Some have a fear of not having any privacy. The experience should be rejoiced in and not feared. The truth is we live more in a glass house in our thoughts than we realize. Our guides, angels, and God never judge us for our thoughts. Angels are non-denominational, and compassionate. They are here to help.

Many of us will experience one dominant way for spirit to communicate with us and that is perfectly normal. If you desire to enhance your natural abilities, a good course of action is to recognize your strengths and work on expanding on them. Some people do experience a vast range of ways for spirit to communicate but will have a difficult time mastering without a focus. The key is to keep an open mind, clear your own energy with a guided meditation, crystal healing, or burning incense, and spending time alone to work on your gifts. Closing out any exterior distractions will help you reach new heights with your spiritual gifts.

Please feel free to share any of your experiences. Namaste. 

5 Steps for Psychic Awareness Development

Your body, in all its glory, is an energy vessel. When our chakras are optimally functioning, we can harness ourselves like a tool to reach the divine. We can conduct universal love energy throughout our bodies to heal ourselves and others, and to channel to gain knowledge and wisdom. I am convinced that in the future the need for books and standard education will become obsolete through individual and collective meditation practices. Many of our ancestors had quite extensive knowledge when considering the hypothesis testing in science only surfaced in the more recent day and age. While there may be many reasons for obtaining knowledge, one obvious reason is that our ancient ancestors lived more in tune with the natural rhythms of their bodies, nature, and the universe. 

When we live in oneness with our higher self, miracles start happening through us and to us. I have found that being your authentic self at all times is like spreading magic wherever you go. When we live in the flow of all of life, synchronicity becomes the day to day norm instead of random rare occurrences. Confirmations from the universe are extremely useful and rewarding when shooting for an aim. For those who have never had this experience, the  unintended drug sub-context tends to surface. Many people believe that psychic awareness is not personally attainable unless the experience is induced by psychedelics. A close friend of mine is someone who truly believed this. I have exhausted long conversations regarding the subject. I found myself on a journey to be an example that true psychic awareness can be developed through non-chemical means or mood-altering substances. In fact, when your body becomes sensitive enough, these substances could come in between you and clear divine guidance. In my experience, I have found that the drug-free path has lead to an abundance of long-lasting and unmistakable insights. My path is definitely not the one and only path, but I wanted to share what I found worked for me getting started.

1. Caffeine-free: I was in a high-stress job and going to school full time when I was guided to go caffeine-free. I thought, there is no way I will have the energy to satisfy my duties. At the time, I was drinking about 5 cups of coffee a day. I was having difficulty sleeping and was always anxious so I knew something had to change. I replaced espresso shots with wheat grass in my daily routine. High potency dissolvable B12 in your grocer’s vitamin isle is also amazing for keeping your energy levels high (especially if you are vegetarian). Juicing is also more energizing and sustainable to maintain higher energy levels. It was about a week of feeling slighted until eventually I had noticeably more energy without crashing and better sleep at night. My sleeping patterns stabilized and my anxiety levels decreased.
 
2. Vegetarian or Vegan Diet: If vegetarian is not your thing, at minimum stay away from advertised foods or anything with a mascot. I’ve been a vegetarian of 11 years, which I’ve learned from fellow lightworkers can dramatically help heighten your intuition. This made sense because I randomly started having profound psychic experiences in my early twenties. When a being is tortured and killed, and you consume it, you are also consuming it’s energy. Having fear or stress in your energy field/ vortex disrupts the clear connection with the divine. Overcoming your own fears can be a daunting task on its own, let alone feeling the fear of a poor, defenseless animal that was tortured and killed. I find that many people who don’t believe in the experience do not even realize that they are stuck in a reality due to their eating habits and lifestyle. I started a vegan diet, which initially I was kicking and screaming about since I love cheese. I found that my psychic experiences with angels were extremely heightened. I stopped craving the cheese because I was enjoying my angels and guides on a very tangible level. Cheese becomes unthinkable if you think it could block witnessing such miracles. Sometimes in my area it is difficult to always be vegan when out to eat. I always make sure to pray over my food before I eat it, giving it an energetic boost. NON-GMO is also very important. Everything has energy and I find that the more natural a substance, the higher energy of life force is within the food. When a fruit or vegetable has been tampered with, it could also tamper with your clear connection to the divine.
 
3. Flouride-free: While it may be difficult to live a completely fluoride-free lifestyle, there are certain steps you can take to minimize your intake. Fluoride calcifies the pineal gland, making your third eye virtually inoperable. Many claim that fluoride was used both in Nazi Germany and Gulags in Siberia to keep prisoners docile and easier to control. This makes a lot of sense when considering fluoride inhibits divine guidance. People are way more likely to question authority if their inner divine guidance is beaming through clearly. It makes me sad to learn that fluoride drinking water is not only socially acceptable in the US, but a norm in our society. I always opt for water put through reverse osmosis. Boiling water does not remove fluoride. I also use Tom’s Fluoride-Free Whitening Toothpaste. A common complaint I hear from people who give it a try is that their teeth don’t get as white or that it doesn’t clean as well, but that would be false from my experience. In fact, I have freakishly white teeth and have never had a cavity to date. If you brush and floss regularly, there shouldn’t be a problem.
 
4. Natural Beauty Products:  Removing metals and chemicals from your beauty products will help you become more sensitive and intuitive. The most difficult part for me was deodorant. I use a few different brands and a combo of items. I personally like peppermint oil since its cooling on hot summer days. I also recommend crystal essence lavender. Tom’s also makes a chemical free deodorant stick that I sometimes use as a base for the peppermint oil, or any oil of your choosing. I also switched my hair products to be all natural. I prefer Moroccan or Argon oil hair products. I dyed my hair one last time to my natural color instead of bleach blonde to ensure I could discontinue applying harsh chemicals in my hair regularly.
 
5. Chakra Clearing: Last but definitely not least, Chakra Clearing is essential to detoxing. As we live our daily lives, we can become bombarded with negative energy depending on your day job or environment. After each day, it is important to release the events from the day. This is essential to ensure that your energy points will harmonize. You can enlarge and clear your energy points with a meditation regimen (morning and evening), and also with yoga. I would recommend a combination of both. If you are unsure on where to start, youtube a chakra clearing meditation and try working with it daily.
 
The goal is to be a clear and perfect channel for higher dimensional energies. Please feel free to share any experiences with this detox or other tips that may have worked for you. Namaste.
