I used to play down my intuition around friends and family. The reason was the fear of criticism or being ‘seen’ as too weird.

You might feel the same way, and it might be a while before you feel safer but know you aren’t alone. It’s super normal to want to belong to a group or family. We all have a core need to belong and not be rejected.

But there’s a risk. We swap out our true selves for whatever looks acceptable to others.

It’s called hiding.

If we hide too long, we forget who we really are and we never get to share our beautiful selves with our intuitive gifts and huge hearts.

And those who love you, really love you, miss out on seeing a vital part of your beautiful self.

I hid my intuition for years after a powerful experience that made it clear I was a medium. The fear of rejection was too great. Unfortunately, that part was quiet for so long, that I lost even more confidence. Brene Brown mentions this:

“Our unexpressed ideas, opinions and contributions don’t just go away. They are likely to fester and eat away at our worthiness.” – Brene Brown

It does take courage to let your light shine and give a voice to hunches and intuition. You won’t always be right, but then again, who is? Not even the best psychics in the world are. Just Google the endless Royals predictions to know how wrong they are.

Having the courage to know this intuitive part of you is ALSO worthy and an essential aspect of who you are is a major step towards shining bright as your true self. When you are your true self, the light of that truth shines forth for all to see.

There’s a magical strength to that, and inner power gathers.

What beautiful part of your soul do you feel called to UNhide?

Semi fictional story about me

In 1994, I had a midlife crisis, got a boob job and moved to Byron Bay.

Quickly realized there was nothing there but more boob jobs and white furniture, so I escaped faux-spiritual beach culture, went to Peru, and experimented with DMT.

While in Peru, fell in love with a Shaman who was really a plumber from Padstow, but stayed because of attachment issues.

After following a puma from the jungle, I holed up in a Scandi-style Air B’n’B and finally got enlightened.

Parts of this story are true.
