I've found that whenever I am looking for objects, I usually rely on my clairvoyance to help me out. Typically, I'm claircognizant, but for finding physical objects, I always have to close my eyes, breathe in a bit, and feel a couple of heartbeats.
I usually get a picture in my mind, but I've found out that the picture may or may not be the actual place of the object that I'm looking for. Sometimes, it may be around the area, under, about, over, etc. And sometimes, that area is just a "stepping stone" to where the object actually is.
Example: I'm looking for my pitch pipe and I get a picture of a blue-box in my exercise room. I go to the exercise room and it's not in the blue box. However, a red Target bag catches my eye and it reminds me that I once had my pitch pipe in the blue box but moved it to a plastic bag in my room. I still find the object, but it's just a multi-step process.
I've found that my intuition as ALWAYS right - in one way or another - it's just my interpretation of it that is less than 100%. However, whenever I DO "mess up" on my intuition, I can EASILY spot out what my intuition was trying to say to me and how I misinterpreted.
Cheers. Again, captivating article. It actually touched my heart.
