Psychic Intuition and Premonition
Intuition can be used to link to the past as well as the present.
premonition is often but not always trying to warn about future
events or developments. both Psychic intuition and premonition can
help to guide you through your daily life and plan for your future
in a far more effective and also give you more reassurance about
where your life is heading.
What Is Intuition?
The word intuition means literally ‘an image reflected in a
mirror’. Intuition refers us back directly to the Greek myth of
Psyche, who symbolises the soul whose name she bears-psyche, in
Greek, means soul.
According to the legend told by Apuleius in his Metamorphoses,
Psyche is beautiful and happy as long as she lets herself be loved
and loves without looking at the man who is the object of her love.
But from the moment she tries to see his face with the help of a
lamp, for it is always at night that Love or Cupid comes to join her
again, she loses him forever.
This legend is a perfect illustration of the true nature and
function of intuition which, is not just a gift which allows you to
see the future, but an innate power, developed to a greater or
lesser degree according to the individual, which helps you to see
and understand immediately what is or should be.
Intuition can speak to you in many ways, from the physical, where
you get a gut feeling, which can make you nervous, cautious or
anxious or a feeling that something is about to happen although you
no know exactly what it is, or it can also be cerebral, such as a
nagging thought that won’t leave you or go away.
It can be an image or symbol that comes to mind, or something
that you know about, but you can’t explain how you know about it.
Intuition can also speak to you by enabling you to pick up on the
emotions of other people, and feeling their pain in your own body,
or through your own emotions, it can also take the form or liking or
disliking the person on sight, or just an instinct that you may have
Intuition can also come to you through signs and affirmations,
you can miss the train or bus only to find out later that there was
a serious problem such as a derailment or an major roadblock
delaying the journey’s. It can also influence your judgement over
which company to work for, if your are nervous or unsure about
working for them, then suddenly come across information that
Intuition can come in the form of an encoded message, such as
hearing a voice that gives you the answer that you are looking for,
seemingly coming out of nowhere talking only to you. In other words,
an intuitive person, in the true sense of the word, possesses a
memory which can be compared to a kind of mirror, as in the myth of
Psyche, which continuously sends him back a very rich and beautiful
image of himself. Intuition can also be the rising up in the realms
of our consciousness of a fact, a thing which we already know, which
we have known from time immemorial, and which comes back to us at
the opportune moment.
What Is Premonition?
As for premonition, it is directed entirely towards the future,
to prediction and anticipation. A premonitory dream is a dream which
warns, which informs us about something concerning us directly or
indirectly. Like intuition, dreaming is also a function of the soul.
The person who has the premonition of an event receives the message
from it, the warning, so that he can act or behave in a certain way
to avoid being affected by it.
Premonitions are very common, and linked to our evolutionary
development, from a time when survival and procreation where more
difficult and fraught with danger. Premonitions have become part of
our birthright and are in a sense programmed into our DNA.
Premonitions can be about forewarning when it comes to disasters
whether natural or manmade, as well as serious health issues, but
they can also foretell happier events such as job promotion and
winning lottery numbers. Premonitions can occur during dreams but
also when you are fully awake.
Premonitions can be very strong between parents and children, as
well as close friends and lovers. Empathy, love and compassion all
help to trigger and intensify premonitions in their clarity and
The more that you can quieten your mind through meditation,
contemplation and immersion in nature, the more likely you are to
have accurate premonitions. Courting or taking an healthy interest
in the mysterious, can also help to develop your premonition.
Also keep a dream diary and make note of your dreams when you
awake. This insures that your dreams are remembered and make
premonitions more likely to occur.
Premonitions are an indicator of the soul and a bridge to the
transcendent in your life. Their value goes beyond their
practical benefit of warning you of upcoming dangers.
Premonitions reveal the presence of a timeless aspect of your
consciousness, and therefore point like an arrow to an immortal,
eternal aspect of who you are.
So premonitions can give early intuitive warnings that occur
frequently within you, but are too subtle to register on your
conscious mind. Some of these intuitive warnings apparently register
on the subconscious and cause you to unknowingly alter you plans as
a result and avoid trouble, or on the other hand benefit from an
opportunity that can lead to happiness or success.
