Hi! Welcome to The Fire Lotus! Allow me to introduce myself, I’m Kristin and I’m a mother of three, a wife and an intuitive.
I’ve been aware of my intuitive abilities since I was a child, but the things I saw and heard always scared me, so I tried very hard to ignore to them. I spent many years trying to shut it all off. Then earlier this year, I went through an intense period of self discovery. I finally decided, at the age of 38, that I needed to accept my abilities.
The two biggest things I did to move me toward accepting my abilities was to start meditating and journaling. I can’t stress enough how helpful these two activities were! I went from completely doubting myself and wondering if maybe I was losing my mind, to starting to accept who I was and the abilities that I have. I’m still very new to all of this, but everyday I’m more and more confident in what I am able to do.
I know that part of my hesitation, aside from it frightening me for most of my life, is the stigma that comes with declaring you are a medium or a psychic. It’s not deemed a “normal” profession and many people are skeptical and/or uncomfortable with the idea. But the more I embrace it, the more I realize that it’s a perfectly normal and natural thing!
Have you ever had a feeling that there was just something about a person you didn’t like? Something you just couldn’t put your finger on, only to later find out something about that person that validated your feeling? That, my friend, is intuition! Of course there are varying degrees of it. Some people excel and others not so much, but everyone has the ability to tap into it if they decide to do the work.
I am at the stage of putting in the work and practice to become more confident, to hear the messages clearer and to be able to accurately translate those messages. I am far from being a professional at this time, but I don’t want to let that hinder me from getting out into the world. For me, it’s not really like what you see on TV and in the movies. It is very subtle and if I don’t have a quiet mind, I run the risk of missing it. That’s not to say that I haven’t had some pretty profoundly in-your-face experiences, they just don’t happen all the time.
Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of meditating on my next steps in my development and I keep getting signs that I need to own up to my abilities and put myself out there, which is a scary thing to do! My hope is that I can bring awareness to the subject of intuition and show that it is more normal and common than most people think. I want everyone to know that they have access to their own intuition. I want to show that even those of us in the beginning stages of intuitive development, can help others. I’m very excited to start this new journey!
