I used to play down my intuition around friends and family. Fear of criticism or being ‘seen’ as too weird was the reason.
You might feel the same way, and it might be a while before you feel safer, but know you aren’t alone. In fact, it’s super normal to want to belong to a group or family, It speaks to very core needs not to feel rejected.
But there’s a risk. We sendup swapping out our true selves for something we think is 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 self 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. I was just too scared of rejection and losing what precious friends I had to tell them I was psychic.
I kept that part of me quiet so long, it turned in on itself, and 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 the hunches and intuition you have.
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.
Have the courage to know this intuitive part of you is ALSO worthy and an essential aspect of who you are. It’s 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?
