Overcoming Self-Doubt: Trusting Your Intuitive Messages Part 2

Updated: Apr 17

In the last post, I talked about how self-doubt clouds our belief in ourselves and affects our readings. In this one, I will focus on the part of self-doubt that comes when we feel like we can’t say, “I don’t know” to a client or someone who’s asking for our insight. The truth is nobody, not even a psychic knows everything. We only get what Spirit gives us.

The area where I have the most self-doubt is when someone asks me to look into their lives about a specific topic and I get NOTHING. It’s all too easy to start thinking “I’m just a fraud, how come I don’t know this? I'm not good at this. Maybe I’m just making this stuff up.” Three times last month, I’ve had times where I just didn’t get anything. My paper or my mind was blank. Or someone asked about an issue and I didn’t see any blockage in that area. I usually figure out why I didn’t get anything by the end of the session but it doesn’t make it any less embarrassing. Cuz shouldn’t we just know all this stuff? We’re intuitive or psychic, right?

There are three main reasons why we don’t always know. Sometimes, a client will ask me about a health issue. I may not see a health issue when I’m scanning them because it’s not a “health” issue; it’s an emotional one that’s manifesting physically in their body to get their attention. That’s not to say that they aren’t having physical symptoms, they are. It just means that to heal it, they need a different type of intervention. For instance, ask who or what is weighing you down, a pain in the neck, or toxic. It also means that as soon as they heal the issue, the physical symptoms also disappear. As a Reiki Practitioner, sometimes people say, “My hip is hurting” but I spend 15 minutes on their knee or 3rd eye because that’s where the issue stems from.

The second reason we don’t know is because their higher self, their guides, or the universe doesn’t want us to know. I have found that with many of us light-workers, we tend to be a shell of the person we are supposed to be. Many of us are the black sheep in our family or community and are told repeatedly that we are weird, crazy, or irrational and that creates A LOT of self-doubts. Light-workers came here during this time to be revolutionaries and that thought alone can be very scary. Sometimes, when clients know things in advance, they will self-sabotage, self-doubt, or deny they could ever be that big or shine that beautifully. Therefore, they are not given the big picture in their readings. They will only be given one step at a time. Once they have gotten to their first step, the next step will be illuminated. This will continue to happen until they finally get to their destination.

Lastly, the other side doesn’t tell us because the answer needs to come from the client. It’s part of their journey to find their way. When they have no idea how to get started or what to do, this is when you tell them, “Find your joy and do more of it.” I found all the answers I was searching for when I did something I love, not an endless search into the past or what ifs.

When I’ve experienced an “I don’t know” with a client, it’s an opportunity to show your integrity. When you say, “I don’t know,” people respect you more than when you try to BS your way through it. It could also mean that you aren’t the person they need to get their question. In that case, refer them to someone else. Sometimes I get a blank because the client doesn’t want to know what I have to say. After all, they may just be looking for confirmation. Life is not all rainbows and unicorns, so our readings shouldn’t be either.

In a future post, I want to talk about how the biggest hurdle I have is how can I see so well for others but with my issues, I’m as blind as a bat. I’d love to get some feedback as to why this happens.

Anyone can do these things by themselves, but sometimes we like to practice with others like us. I am running a Clairs Class at AIMS on Wednesdays from 5:30 to 7:00 on the Greeley Campus from April 3rd - May 8th, 2024, and on the Loveland Campus from June 05 - July 17th on Wednesdays from 5:30 to 7:30.

I would love it if you would share the things that have worked for you, being supportive of each other, and cheering each other on. Note: The comments section is at the bottom of this page.

Until next time…
