1945. Known as a medical clairvoyant, Cayce analyzed psychic visions to detect the causes of his clients' challenges and prescribe treatments. Cayce assisted thousands of seekers in his 40 years of practice. Thousands of other modern mystics could be added to this list, but the truth is that this extrasensory ability is age-old and worldwide. In fact, shamans and healers in most ancient cultures exercised their intuition for medicinal purposes and many of their contemporary equivalents are doing the same. For example, the Kallawaya female healers from Bolivia and nearby countries have always, and still do, consult with invisible spirits or deceased ancestors before employing up to 600 herbs to treat various disorders. The shamans among the sub-Saharan !Kung people encircle the sick and dance around them while spirits provide visions and advice, also helping them battle negative energies. How might I explain the longevity and effectiveness of medical intuition? Scientifically, the process is viable because everything is made of energy, which is information that moves. That which appears materially, however, from a tumor to an inflamed bodily area, is programmed by subtle or psychic energies, which operate as the latticework for physically apparent energies. What's the key to peering into or transforming the subtle world? Intuition. Hold on, though! Before you willy-nilly apply your intuition to client work, it's important to acknowledge that subtle energies are slippery little fellows. Akin to quanta—the smallest bits of energy in the universe— subtle energies aren't fixed in time and space. That means a medical intuitive might detect subtle energetic patterns from the past or the present, maybe even from the future. Try as you might, it's not always easy to locate a psychic message on the time-space continuum. It can also be hard to distinguish an intuitive flash from a fear, fantasy, or fleeting bit of fancy. There are two main ways to deal with these and additional complications. One is to understand the four main types of intuition. The other is to adopt strict intuitive protocols. I'll cover both topics. Basically, there are four varieties of intuition. You might tap into only one style during a session or up to all four. These are as follows. VISUAL INTUITION Visual intuition is the ability to perceive subtle energies as psychic images or as sights seen through the physical eyes. In your mind's eye (or even with your normal eyes), an intuitive picture might be colorful, black and white, metaphorical, or literal. It might illuminate during your nightly or day dreams and be summoned or appear spontaneously. External visions are often environmental in nature, perhaps appearing as images or words on a billboard or license plate. What might the visually gifted perceive when performing medical intuition? Examples include the event or person causing a client's hardship, a problematic microbe or belief, a possible conclusion to an illness, an image of the source or location of a pain, or the best approach to delivering a healing. VERBAL INTUITION Verbal intuition is verbal information that comes through the inner or regular ears and contains a psychic message. A verbal intuitive might internally hear a voice, sound, song, or statement, or open their mouths and simply share pertinent information. They might also overhear a conversation or remember a prior discussion and gain an insight. Verbally medical intuitives can hear a spiritual guide's voice that pinpoints the cause or location of a problem, and maybe even the solution, or find themselves conversationally doling out relevant data. PHYSICALLY EMPATHIC INTUITION Physical empaths register pleasant or unpleasant sensations that mirror what is occurring in another's body. They can also sense whether a specific treatment might be effective. Besides being physically sensitive, they can also relate to another's emotions, thoughts, or perspectives, or the psychological causes of a malady. Some physical empaths can even clear a client's issues in their own body before transferring in healing energy. SPIRITUALLY EMPATHIC INTUITION Spiritual empaths are dialed into the Divine and their client's divinity. Any and all types of information can be provided through this means. Most frequently, I use it to provide my clients with inspiration and hope. I insist on the need for carefulness, though, especially when traipsing into the therapeutic arena. We might completely miss a problem or its cause; Yo u r M & B i s w o r t h 2 C E s ! G o t o w w w. a b m p . c o m / c e t o l e a r n m o r e . 99
