Crystals, cards, oils, candles and trinkets. I have managed to get myself a great stash of these over the past few months. And they all have a part to play in the way I conduct my meditation practice.
One of the things I have been trying to work on is recognizing and acting upon my intuition. In the past I have always thought that I wasn’t a particularly intuitive person but I think I was always expecting a huge neon light or the like was going to guide me through life.
I now realize that intuition is subtle and something that I need to harness by quieting my mind and putting the intention in place to follow it. For me it is mainly a feeling I can get, yes that is what I should be doing, no that isn’t feeling right. If I am rushing around at a million miles an hour it is much more difficult for me to recognise and act on my intuition.
A simple way I have been practicing this skill is when I have been setting myself up for my meditation practice. Instead of picking the oracle card deck that I first see when I glance over to them, I now take some time and think about which one will give me the answers I seek. I do the same when choosing a crystal and the essential oil I wish to work with.
Sometimes I feel a strong urge to use one over the other, sometimes I can get a feeling when I touch them that this is the one I should be using today. Subtle shifts in energy that help me decide what I will be working with for the day.
I know this is just a small example of using intuition but I believe it’s all about starting small and starting to trust. Yes Trust is a big one for me this year. Trusting myself, my intuition, the universe and the process of life. It is no wonder I am often led to work with the Trust Essential Oil.
Here is what I used today:
The oils I love to use are the Sacred Self Alchemical Oils and can be found here.
From the website: Sacred Self products are hand-made with love during a meditation ceremony. Each item is energetically infused with sound, light, colour, sacred symbols, crystals and a pure intention.
They are divine and my collection continues to grow. The one I used today was the Trust blend but others in the range I love to use also include Self Love, Abundance, Joy, Clarity and Inspiration.
The card deck I used today was the Gaia Oracle by Toni Carmine Salerno. The card I pulled from the deck was Achievement – Keep focused on your dream. I am loving that, what a great message for me to continue forging forward.
My Gratitude journal is from Kikki-K. I try to write in this most days as well as using my journal to further express what I am grateful for.
The crystal is a beautiful piece of Rose Quartz. This stone is one of unconditional love that opens the heart chakra to all forms of love. It is also used to raise self-esteem and a strong sense of self-worth.
That is a little bit about my meditation ritual and how I incorporate intuition into my practice. I would love to know how you are going at trusting your intuition?
