Born to Be Intuitive

By Christine Page

I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t connected to spirit and highly intuitive. As a child, I thought everybody spoke to dead people, could feel the energy at sacred sites, and was dazzled by the multifaceted nature of people.

It took me a long time to realize that what I saw, thought, and knew, was not common knowledge. But I’ve never doubted my inner knowing, coming to trust it implicitly both for myself and for the people who ask for my help.

I was very fortunate to be born into a family of wise and intuitive women — my mother took me, as a child, to experience some wonderful trance mediums, psychic artists, healers, and psychic surgeons.

I’ve also been fortunate to witness some of the very best (and very worst) mediumistic talents, watching performers use their skills to disempower their audience with magic tricks, and others who have applied love to connect their audience to their own divine spark.

One way to describe some of my intuitive gifts is that I spontaneously see many different facets or sub-personalities of the individual (some of which are not human) — and they’re all talking to me at the same time! As a child, this was, as you can imagine, rather overwhelming as my parents would introduce me to an individual with a smiling outer mask but all I could see and feel was their sadness, despair, and sometimes deep-seated rage. What did I do as a child? I hid. This perplexed my very gregarious mother who would, in her exasperation, say, “Don’t be so shy; be polite to people when they talk to you.” My problem was that I didn’t know which subpersonality I was meant to speak to.

In my teens, this lack of personal boundaries, which is very common in psychics, caused me to become more and more sensitive to other people’s suffering. I knew only one way out: I fainted. You may ask, why did I choose to become a doctor where, on a daily basis, I meet people who suffer? But this was a deep soul choice, and through the title of MD, I have gained access to many wonderful and rewarding jobs in many different countries, while I also learned to create healthy emotional boundaries which, on a larger scale, prevent me from taking on the suffering of the world.

I’ve come to see intuition as the messenger of the soul; the still small voice which speaks to me through words, feelings, and images. I believe my soul carries the whole and perfect blueprint of my unique aspect of God, Divine Source, or the Creator. My soul seeks to lovingly guide me to express this fullness (soul destiny) here on Earth, through my intuition.

Ultimately, I believe we’re all here to express and know ourselves fully through our experiences and relationships. The belief that we’re being guided by a loving soul can be hard to accept when facing difficult events which may result in the death of a loved one, illness, pain, or abuse. But if we take time to reflect, many of us have been strengthened by our more difficult experiences, and have emerged determined to do things differently.

Today, when offering soul readings or during our astrology workshops, I still sense the same multiple personalities of an individual. I prefer to see them as petals of a flower which surround the center of the flower, the soul. I’m not interested in removing a personality because it’s troublesome, but allowing it to be heard before bringing it into the heart with love. I remind myself that every facet of me is imbued with Divine Essence and my intuition is gently connecting me to my divine or spiritual wholeness.

It’s my experience that the soul doesn’t speak to me in an emotional manner, pleading with me to listen. It has a relatively detached way of addressing me, which causes me to trust its messages. I know that if it were my ego speaking, my ego would be deeply attached to the result which comes from following my intuition. Now that doesn’t mean that the messages from my intuition aren’t sometimes urgent, but there’s also a “take or leave it” attitude from my soul: no blame or guilt.

Sadly, I can also see how easy it is to dismiss such emotionless messages as we stubbornly hold onto a destructive life, just because we don’t like change. I often see this scenario when talking with clients. They will tell me about a miraculous encounter with spirit who gave them amazing advice and then will ask, “What do you think I should do?” If spirit has taken time and effort to meet you in your daily life, please don’t ignore the message, or even worse, shoot the messenger!

If I’m in any doubt whether this is my ego or soul speaking, I’ll empty my mind of the thought or image; and if it returns a third time, I know it needs to be spoken. I’ve also learned to ask for help from the Universe (spirit world), as I often hear that, in general, we don’t ask for help or we ask unhelpful questions such as, “Why does this always happen to me?” So I’ll ask, “If I’m not meant to do this, please make it very clear in the next 24 hours." So then when my car doesn’t start, I can’t find my passport, or nobody signs up for a class I’m giving, I know I’m being given loving advice from my soul.

Finally, I want to say that being intuitive hasn’t spared me from pain or suffering, but it has lessened the time I grieve or feel hurt because first and foremost, I believe I’m loved. I’m continually working to embrace all aspects of myself — so I can see clearly through the lens of my intuition, believing that my inner work is one of the greatest gifts I can give to my clients and to myself.
