We are all born with an undeniable sixth sense – a sense beyond the basic five senses of sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing. This sixth sense is our psychic sense, our inner knowing, our connection to infinite intelligence, also known as intuition.
Intuition is challenging to define, despite the huge role it plays in our everyday lives. Steve Jobs claimed it to be “more powerful than intellect.” But however we put it into words, we all intuitively know just what it is.
What is intuition?
“I define intuition as the subtle knowing without ever having any idea why you know it,” says Sophy Burnham, bestselling author of The Art of Intuition. “It’s different from thinking, it’s different from logic or analysis … It’s a knowing without knowing.”
Our intuition is always there, whether we’re aware of it or not. Some people are clearly more intuitive than others, while people like myself practice to develop and grow our psychic capabilities… and then there are the psychic superheroes!
As a highly intuitive person, I don’t miss much. I observe everything. One of my observations points to the fact that the most intuitive people on the planet, whether they are aware of it or not, are emergency responders by occupation. These highly intuitive people include emergency room nurses, EMTs, fire fighters, police officers… And the irony is, the majority of them would not label themselves as psychic or highly intuitive. They just are.
Our culture reveres highly spiritual people and consider them to be more psychic. And yes, people who meditate and pray are mindful and able to direct their thoughts, which does nurture their intuitions. But the psychic rubber meets the road when people are put in emergency situations, not when they are sitting in lotus position. That is when the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight) kicks in and shuts most people down.
Who’s got the psychic goods?
But not my beloved emergency room nurses, cops, EMTs or fire fighters. That’s when their psychic superpowers kick into high gear. Of course they receive lots of training to prepare them for emergency situations, but their ability to act fast and save lives comes from a deeper place. They are forced to rely on their intuitions far more so than the average guy.
The beauty is with our emergency workers, the more they experience success in helping others and saving lives with their quick wits, gut feelings and innate knowing, the more they trust their intuitions and what I call “psychic hits.” They are truly putting their psychic abilities to the test every day and getting direct feedback, which in turn, amplifies their psychic senses.
I remember watching COPS on TV years ago and always being impressed with the police officer who pulled over the guy with the broken tail light because he had a “hunch” about the driver – only to find him armed, dangerous, wanted or with a trunk full of drugs. This happens all the time. And I don’t know a cop who can’t spot a liar in .01 seconds. I believe they are so accustomed to the energy of lying that they recognize it instantly.
Thank you, psychic superheroes!
Here’s to our brave emergency responders! Thank you for putting your lives on the line for us and for trusting your intuitions. You have no idea just how amazing you are.
