What is ‘Intuitive Guidance’?
Maureen has described the experience as one where it seems that her higher self connects with the higher self of the person/s asking the question. Some have asked, “What is the ‘source’ of this information?” The answer always states that the individual(s) asking the questions are the source – so Maureen understands her role to simply have the gift of being able to access your own inner, higher wisdom. The information has been very specific to individual questions and offers more guidance than predictive information. Maureen’s intuitive abilities have shown themselves periodically throughout her life. After she started practicing Reiki regularly, she discovered she was able to clearly recognize a person’s gifts, strengths and unique qualities. She describes this as her ability to see people’s essence.
In late 2006 Maureen discovered her intuitive connections with others had expanded. She began going into a relaxed state, with her eyes closed, and was able to access information that provided clarity and insight to her client’s questions. As she explored this new ability further she understood that the source of this information was the “higher self” of those asking questions merged with her own “higher self”. In this way, she is able to be the ‘voice’ for the ‘knowing’ that we all have within.
Our Higher Self is that aspect of our consciousness that is always connected to our Eternal Being. The other part of our consciousness is our personality, or ego consciousness that is active in our day-to-day reality and is focused on our daily existence and the physical world.
The more that we connect with our Higher Self, the more we experience the infinite love, compassion and wisdom that is always present. Our Higher Self can help us recognize the thoughts and behaviors we have that limit us from not only living the life we yearn for, but also that limits what we believe is possible!
Once we recognize our limiting thought patterns and behaviors, we are able to choose differently, let go of the limits and step into our Full Potential.
