purpose? Say it! "I wonder if you are feeling lost in regard to your life goals. What do you think?" Quote your source. If you can determine the source of your intuitive data, be clear. If I sense the Divine's presence or if my own mind comes up with something, I'll distinguish these sources from each other. If my own body is giving me an inkling, I'll announce it. Understand timing. As stated, when operating intuitively, information can relate to the past, present, and possible futures. Because of this, keep your statement vague as to the "when" of an awareness by being honest. Let's say you psychically envision a microbe floating in your client's bloodstream. You might say, "I'm seeing an image of a microbe. It could be that your current problem is caused by a long-ago microbe or even by a current one; then again, maybe your immune system is so depressed you could easily catch an infection." In the end, remember that intuition is available to all of us. You might provide your client applicable insights—or they might even get their own through your work. Stay within the guidelines and intuition can be of great benefit. Cyndi Dale is an internationally renowned author, speaker, and intuitive consultant. Her popular books include The Subtle Body Coloring Book: Learn Energetic Anatomy (Sounds True, 2017), Subtle Energy Techniques (Llewellyn Publications, 2017), Llewellyn's Complete Book of Chakras (Llewellyn Publications, 2016), The Intuition Guidebook: How To Safely and Wisely Use Your Sixth Sense (Deeper Well Publishing, 2011), Energetic Boundaries: How to Stay Protected and Connected in Work, Love, and Life (Sounds True, 2011), The Subtle Body: An Encyclopedia of Your Energetic Anatomy (Sounds True, 2009), and The Complete Book of Chakra Healing (Llewellyn Publications, 2009), as well as nearly 20 additional books.

Because of all the ins and outs of medical intuition, I suggest you use the following safety guidelines when using your intuitive faculties during a session. Request permission. Before checking in intuitively or sharing received intuitive data, ask your client if they want your insights. If they do, remember that you are human and so is your client. State aloud that you are merely disclosing perceptions, which might be accurate or inaccurate. Refer to professionals. After sharing intuitive understandings, suggest that the client follow up with the appropriate professional to either test the insight's accuracy or to work on the related issue. For instance, if I have intuitively heard that a specific herb would be beneficial, I would say, "I'm hearing this herb might help you. I recommend that you see an herbalist or naturopath to check it out." Emphasize energetic descriptions. Describe exactly how you are receiving the information. The way the data is provided might hold specific meaning for the client. How do you distinguish between styles of intuition? Images are easy to depict; simply say what you are seeing. You can introduce a verbal comprehension with phrases like these: "This is what I'm hearing," or, "This is what a guide is saying." Empathically received sensations can be imparted with exactness too. For instance, I might say, "My shoulder suddenly feels sore. Have you experienced the same?" Or maybe I can track a pain to a certain body area. I might then suggest, "I'm feeling the pain move from my elbow to the shoulder. Could your shoulder be the true source of your problem?" Spiritual awareness can be communicated literally. Do you have a strong sense that your client's problems are due to being off Shamans and healers in most ancient cultures exercised their intuition for medicinal purposes and many of their contemporary equivalents are doing the same. 100 m a s s a g e & b o d y w o r k j a n u a r y / f e b r u a r y 2 0 1 9 ENERGY WORK
