One of the biggest issues I’ve had with developing my intuition is the fear of what other people will think. There are so many people in the world who don’t believe in a sixth sense, in the possibility that there is more to life than what we see right in front of us. These people ridicule anything that’s remotely “out there.” It’s downright frightening to mention to someone that you have an interest in psychic things, to see the look on their faces. Half of me doesn’t want to do this work just because of those people. They say there’s no scientific proof that this is possible (which is not true). They say this is the work of the devil (which is not true). They say that all psychics are scam artists (some are, but not all).
Sonia Choquette, one of the best intuitive/psychic teachers in the world, says that support is absolutely critical to intuitive development. In her words, “Six Sensories need to surround themselves with believing eyes.” And she’s right. I’ve been lucky enough to have a myriad of brilliant and intuitive friends, family members, and clients who celebrate the wonders of intuition, who share their own stories, who are generous but not pushy with their advice, and who are eager to tell me when I’ve been right about things I’ve predicted or reflections I’ve had on certain situations. If not for these people, I’d have given up a long time ago.
So, if you’re working on expanding your awareness, learning about intuition and/or healing, or psychic techniques, don’t worry about the naysayers. Just find people who are like-minded, and grow with them. It will help, I promise!
