Think of how many years of effort we invest in learning to use our senses like vision (shapes, colors, distance, object identification, hand-eye coordination), hearing (tones, volume, timbre, music, words, language), touch (temperature, texture, weight, volume), etc. Imagine how underdeveloped our physical senses would be without this training from a young age. We could stare at something and not even know what it is.
It's terrible to think that a spirit (be it you or someone else) wouldn't be able to get through to someone. That must be uber frustrating.
Really makes me feel a responsibility for developing my intuitive abilities further. I've always had a pretty solid base, but was never really interested in opening myself up to the other side since, I guess, I feared what might come through.
I realise that's a suboptimal choice that, while it may protect me, it also blocks me from more positive guidance. Seems awfully wasteful, too (although I do put most of my intuitive abilities to good use; I love being able to sense things).
My challenge, however, isn't to really develop more abilities--it's to open up the door. As soon as I do that, I'm sure I'll get all I need.
Yep, I just know this is going to be an "interesting" experience, heh. First, I think, I need to come to terms with what I need to do with the messages that come through. There's also that pesky fear of me not being accurate in my delivery of such messages and how people may perceive that.
Out come my truth, love, and power tools.
("Powertools", get it? Ha ha... ha?
