Health intuition, also known sometimes as medical intuition, is an extrasensory ability which allows a person to perceive information about the state of health and well-being of another. This information is evaluative in nature and is usually received through visual images, words, felt sensations or a sense of 'knowing' beyond that which our five human senses can tell us. This ability belongs to the realm of the 'sixth sense', and an individual with this type of extrasensory ability is able to see, hear or feel information about another's health, or ill health as the case may be, as well as hidden causes and potential resolutions of same.
Individuals such as the late Edgar Cayce (1877-1945), one of the most well-known individuals with this extrasensory ability to 'see the unseen' and 'know the unknown' as related to health and healing, as well as contemporary medical intuitives and best-selling authors Caroline Myss and Anthony William have and are playing significant roles in assisting the healing of others through their extrasensory abilities. Their far-reaching notoriety and medically-verified work has brought health intuition forth to the public stage in a much larger way, allowing for greater awareness and acceptance of this 'sixth sense' ability and the valuable, sometimes even lifesaving role it can play on the road to well-being.
Health intuition offers an extremely valuable service indeed, particularly for those with mysterious or unresolved health matters which more traditional forms of medicine may have been unable to diagnose or treat. For 12 years my practice as a health intuitive was filled with such people who had in most cases ardently sought answers or solutions for a health matter but were unable to either find the true cause, or, to heal a diagnosis previously given. In their search for healing these individuals found themselves turning to health intuition in the hopes that it could shed more light on the matter and help them find their way back to greater well-being.
One of the great strengths of health intuition is its ability to perceive not only the physical manifestations of a health matter, but also the possible underlying causes for same. Sometimes these causes are physical in nature, such as a pathogen, an unknown or unresolved injury or an event such as a stroke. But even more often the imbalance originates in the more subtle, non-physical aspects of our being such as our emotions or our psyche. Health intuitives tend to be able to perceive both the physical and non-physical aspects of a person simultaneously due to the sensitive, multidimensional nature of their extrasensory faculties, as well as how these different aspects of a person are functioning individually and together. When there is disruption in any one aspect, every part of the body and being responds somehow, including through pain, illness, dysfunction or the appearance of disease. A skilled health intuitive is able to find the nature of the disruption and in many cases, also able to sense what might bring resolution to it as well.
I have been amazed over my years in practice by the many health-related matters which resolved through addressing and clearing the underlying subtle imbalances causing them. I have been equally amazed by the many times this inside-out approach to correcting imbalances assisted me with my own body's well-being. When paired with the physical support of a healthy diet, health-supportive supplements and subtle energy therapies such as acupuncture and energy work, sometimes even the most challenging or stubborn health matters gave way and greater health returned to the individual or to myself. This is a beautiful thing to witness and an even greater thing to experience in one's own health, and I have had the great privilege of experiencing both. I have learned so much over these years and will always be grateful for the special opportunity and learning that working as a health intuitive has given me.
However saying this, I have also had the experience of these wonderful corrective approaches not bringing about a resolution to a health matter or a true return to health and well-being. As effective as each approach can be, whether that be addressing one's diet and lifestyle, one's inner life of emotions, psychological well-being, personal beliefs or attending to one's spiritual life, I have also seen great effort expended to address each and all of these areas of oneself and still, the health matter remains.
And, I have been this person myself. Despite both my personal and professional years of experience, I have found myself up against this crossroads where information itself - whether it be scientific, medical, holistic, spiritual or intuitive - can take you no further on the healing path. And, it nearly cost me my life.
So it is at this crossroads that I now find myself with my work; the place where health intuition opens up to something other, something far more intrinsic to who we truly are and the potential for healing that resides 'deep in the root' of our being. A place that has less to do with figuring out and resolving 'what's wrong' and more to do with stepping out of the matter itself from the power that lies within.
Perhaps we do not know that we have this power, or, have not yet learned how to embrace it in such a way as to set ourselves free from the limitation or issue itself. But we do. Without coming to an even deeper understanding of the reality of this power and stepping into it more fully in order to set myself free, I might not be here today and for sure would not have recovered from a health matter that took nearly three years of my life. I never did fully 'solve' the problem. Instead, I learned I never had to. I just had to learn how to step out of the problem in such a way that the deeper forces of healing could restore me. And restore me they did.
Information of any kind - medical, holistic, intuitive - did not heal me. Something much deeper and more intrinsic to us all did. So this is where my old form of work ends and a new conversation begins.
Beyond health intuition.
