How to use your own medical intuition
You may not realise it, but you use medical intuition nearly every day. Whenever you have a stomachache, a sore throat, or a headache, you must decide how to respond. You may rest, take a pill, remove yourself from what is causing the problem (which you also must figure out), seek medical attention or you do nothing, hoping that it will pass. Arguably, one could say that you use your experience and knowledge to make these decisions, but you may be experiencing these symptoms for the first time or in a form you are not familiar with.
You have probably heard of “mother’s intuition”. This is a kind of sixth sense that both mothers and fathers have when it comes to their children. It’s a type of non-verbal communication that is considered normal and quite accurate. Parents are presented with situations regarding children all the time that require determination of their needs, sometimes without very much information, including making judgments about health and well-being. Mother’s (parent’s) intuition is a known and accepted phenomenon, which is essentially medical intuition.
I define medical intuition as simply “knowing” things about the physical body and emotional state, without information from experience or training. Some people might consider Medical Intuition to be “woo woo” but I don’t. I believe that we all have medical intuitive abilities, especially physicians, nurses, and related practitioners. The best practitioners I’ve ever worked with, professionally or personally, have all known things about me and my health without me having to tell them every single detail and these same people helped when other practitioners were stumped or had misdiagnosed the situation.
As a Medical and Spiritual Intuitive, I listen to information from my intuitive guides about all aspects of a person’s life, to identify the root causes of any issues they are having, help them connect to intuition, and develop a plan for them moving forward for health and wellness. The information I receive includes physical traits and symptoms, relationships, their job and life purpose, childhood information, trauma and stress, emotional issues, intuitive and empathic abilities, and much more. I work with physicians and other medical professionals on a regular basis, and I have also been a Licensed Professional Counselor for the past 30 years.
I work in a unique way, beginning the reading process with a written, four-page, extremely detailed report, and symbolic painting created knowing only a person’s name and age, without receiving any other information or seeing a photo. My abilities and accuracy have been verified by licensed health professionals including MDs, celebrities, and many media outlets. I believe that one of my most important tasks is teaching people how to connect to and trust their own intuition.
Examples of using medical and spiritual intuition that you may not have considered:
- Knowing that a family member has been hurt or is deceased without having been notified
- Getting a warning feeling when you are presented with medical or life advice, a treatment option, or a procedure.
- Receiving signals (symptoms) from your body that you need to take better care of yourself or be more authentic. This also applies to realizing that you are hungry or full.
- Feeling calm and peaceful when you are in nature or with people you feel comfortable around
- Listening to the feeling that you need to stop or slow down after a minor injury.
- Being able to determine the specific needs of your baby just by their cry.
- Knowing what your child needs without them saying a word. This is especially important with non-verbal children.
- Removing yourself from the presence of people who feel unsafe
The same things that can interfere with any intuition can also interfere with medical intuition.
- Fear: Rather than allowing you to trust the universe, God, your body, and your 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 yourself and others.
- Disconnection from the body: Intuitive information is received through words and images in your head as well as physical and emotional symptoms. Without a connection to your body, you are cutting off a vital source of information. Relaxation is key, and meditation can be a great tool.
- Perfectionism: I often hear “I don’t think I’m doing it right” or “I can’t do what you do—I can’t use medical intuition.” 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 your 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—you aren’t always your own best judge—but if you feel something strongly, stick to your guns.
- Anger: Illness can bring about anger and feelings of victimization. I can’t blame people for feeling this way. A little 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 can isolate you and make you feel hopeless. It cuts you off from your body. If you can’t be grounded and live in the present, you can’t listen to what your body needs to heal at this moment.
- Bias and assumptions. I prefer to know as little as possible about someone before a reading. The more I know, the more I’m prone to making assumptions, which gets in the way of my guides.
