Question from a reader:
Do you go through periods where your intuition is blocked and Spirit is distant? If so, what do you do to get back into the flow?
Yes, I have been through periods where my intuition feels blocked. For me, it means something very specific, however it may not mean the same thing for you. In this post, I am going to share what it means for me.
When I don’t get guidance anymore, it means that I’m going in the wrong direction in my life. And whatever I’m doing is not going to work out well for me.
Either that, or I’ve already been given guidance but I am not following it. And my Spirit Guides don’t repeat themselves ad nauseum. They give the guidance once and leave me to follow it or not. If I am walking into a pothole, despite their guidance, they just go quiet.
This last happened to me in September 2019, when I got the guidance it was time to stop house sitting, after almost 4 years of full time travel. I ignored the guidance for a few months, but it wasn’t working out well for me during that period. The house sits that I booked were either cancelling, or they were very unsuitable for me and as a result I was getting tired of house sitting.
Anyway, during that period, my guides went quiet. I’d ask for guidance about how to handle the problems with the house sits, and it was just…silence.
Thankfully I got the message in the end to stop house sitting
(Burning out through too much travel also helped to hammer it home!)
And so I started looking for my own place, and moved to Sheffield. It was as if my guides “came back online”, so to speak, soon after I made that decision and started taking concrete steps towards it. Then they started giving me guidance about how to choose a home, and when I had found it, they helped give me guidance about where to find the pieces to furnish and decorate it!
So my guides had all of this guidance to give me, but I was going in the wrong direction. And I believe that if I had persisted with the house sitting and travelling, it would only have got worse from there. My burnout would have worsened and I would have found myself with all my house sits cancelled during the pandemic. I’m glad I chose to listen to the guidance at the right time.
So when my guides go quiet, experience has taught me I’m pursuing a path that is a dead end. They’re just waiting for me to fall into a pothole and realise it.
However, not getting guidance may not mean the same thing for you — it depends on your level of intuitive development. If you’re a professional intuitive or a very experienced intuitive who gets guidance all the time, and suddenly your guides go quiet, you may be looking at a scenario like the one I described above.
But if you’re a new intuitive, and you feel blocked, it may just be that you’re missing something in your development. In my Intuitive Awakening Course, I present the following formula for developing your psychic gifts:
Find your strongest intuitive gifts ——> Sensitize your gifts ——> Connect with Spirit using techniques that utilise those gifts
So if you are struggling to communicate with Spirit, and you’re new at this, then it could be that you are:
- Trying to develop a gift that isn’t your forte
- You’re not working on sensitising the gifts that are your forte
- You’re using a technique which is meant for a gift that you don’t have e.g. you’re doing automatic writing when you’re not claircognizant (to give an example)
- Or you’re taking the steps, but in the wrong order.
Now I am interested to hear from you — are you struggling to receive guidance? What does it mean for you, when Spirit goes quiet?
