Using your intuition for Medical Issues
Tuning into the car before I dropped it off, my own intuition told me that the car was fine, but that my bill from the mechanic would be $80.00. This confused me because an oil change only costs about $25.00. I tuned into the car again, and could find the car only in good condition with nothing to worry about. I dropped the car off at the mechanic and went on to interview Dr. Judith Orloff today.
Intuition can be used for a variety of reasons -- as you can gather from above I use it for a variety of reasons. But just as you can "tune into" your own car; you can tune into your own physical, emotional, spiritual and mental health. This ability is at your fingertips!
While an intuitive will often give a reading that discusses your entire life at length, a medical intuitive will discuss your current state of health and wellness. A medical intuitive will tune in to see your organs and other systems of your body to note the function of each system and note for any imbalance. They may also discuss your past medical history with you and issues that may be developing in the future for you. Medical intuition is becoming more well used and intuitives are even working with physicians to help patients. Learning to trust your own intuitive voice for medical issues can be a very valuable ally to have in any healthcare circumstance - from selecting the right doctor, to taking medication, to switching your diet or listening to a new symptom that just won't go away.
Dr. Judith Orloff is a well-known medical intuitive, psychiatrist and a third-generation intuitive. She is the author of two books, Second Sight and Dr. Judith Orloff's Guide to Intuitive Healing. She currently sees patients in private practice, teaching them to use their intuition and teaches workshops and lectures.
Dr. Orloff is confident that anyone can learn how to use their intuition to tune into their medical concerns. But how can you be sure that what you see is not your own anxiety, or an emotional reaction? "I deal with this issue every single day. I encourage people to listen to sounds, and their impressions, to pay attention to their dreams. What I do is I use a five step process [see end of article] that is outlined in my "Guide" book and I teach my patients and students to learn to listen to what is accurate and what is off, starting with what an intuitive yes and an intuitive no feel like for them," said Orloff. "Being neutral is when the information comes through. There is a sense of clarity when the information does come through and there is no debate when there is a true intuitive yes, and I will go over this process with my patients, reminding them of the actual time that they tuned into this information and they see and agree that this did feel neutral and that there was clarity around this information," said Orloff. "Being neutral is when the information comes through, there is no debate when it does. Patients and students also realize that at that moment when the information does come through - there is no emotion - it is simply information that is given to them."
Dr. Orloff believes anyone can learn to tune into their intuition for this, that it is a simple matter of learning a new skill. "I teach everyone I work with how to do this, it is a matter of training," said Dr. Orloff. "I teach people to remember their dreams and I have people remember that their body speaks to them with its own language; listen to pain and what is it saying to you?"
To develop your intuition for medical purposes, you may need to develop your understanding of how the body works. Orloff encourages students to purchase Gray's Anatomy book. "Another important factor is truly living in your body. Understand where your organs and other systems are. I've been lucky as a doctor to have touched a heart and attended surgery, many people simply do not think about their insides. If you want to tune into your insides, you need to know where they are and what they do," said Orloff. She also suggests doing a meditation on different organs and ask if each organ has something to say to you. "Do an energy exploration with your hands and feel the energy between them," said Orloff. "Practice with a friend and practice feeling their energy on their body and let them practice on you."
Orloff's spiritual practice consists of daily meditation and she encourages beginning students to start with only a three minute meditation. "To ask for inner guidance, you need to let yourself get quiet. Develop a sacred space at home and learn to sense the stillness. Getting out of your mind is important and meditation is an excellent way to do this," said Orloff. "I encourage people to start very slow so that they can get used to how it feels." She also encourages those that travel frequently to not pass up the opportunity to meditate even in bathrooms or conference rooms, wherever you can find that privacy. "Anywhere you can grab that - you need that connection to energy and tuning into it, especially if you travel," said Orloff. "Longer meditations will place you in that energy strongly and connect you with spirit. Trust your own sense of timing."
"As a child I predicted all sorts of negative things," said Orloff. She encourages people to look at the lessons of their childhoods. "My parents refused to let me predict things and finally I just rejected my abilities. As a teenager I got very involved in drugs in the 60's," said Orloff. "In the beginning as an intuitive you may pick up negative things because they have a louder signal and positive information may be harder to hear. So people need to know things like this as they develop. They will pick up all kinds of wonderful and spiritual and uplifting information as well, but they may hear negative information in the beginning, and not to be afraid."
She continues, "Also people should not be scared and not think that they have the power, they often feel that I am able to do something that they can't and I am constantly mirroring this back to them," said Orloff. She admits she was born with an ability, but she reminds us that she saw patients as a practicing doctor for twenty years. "People need to remember that practice is very important and when they do, and they act with this in mind, they will see all these things will start to happen," said Orloff. She believes that at times the training for a true medical intuitive begins when someone is very young. "Most will experience things that they just don't know how to interpret and they will be confused. Sometimes Spirit teaches you, you get lessons early on because intuitively you are open." Orloff has seen many that have been intuitively traumatized. "They shut off, and part of my true work is helping people through their fear because fear can stop everything," said Orloff "People aren't used to thinking of themselves as powerful but they are and they have to do this also."
Orloff's next book will be released in Spring of 2004 and is called Positive Energy, published by Harmony Books. "To me, energy is the most sacred thing we are. It is who we are before we manifest into a body and it is what we are when we leave," said Orloff.

Intuition can be a powerful healing tool and a powerful tool for guidance of many types. At the end of the day, I picked my car up to discover that my registration had lapsed and the mechanic did the inspection for me. The bill came to $80.38.
The Five Steps For Intuitive Healing
Your beliefs set the tone for healing. Positive attitudes accentuate growth, negative attitudes impair it. Honesty is required to flush out counterproductive perceptions so ingrained you may not realize how pernicious they are. If we examine our beliefs, we won't be subject to subterranean undermining influences. Our beliefs trigger biochemical responses. No organ system stands apart from our thoughts. What you believe - what you really believe - programs your neurochemcials. I'm not suggesting that you be Pollyannaish or put on a happy face to please, but that you be absolutely true to yourself. This will liberate you from unconscious impulses that impede your healing.
Your body is a richly nuance intuitive receiver. You must be in it completely to heal. This may require some adjustments. We're trained to function from the neck up, denying the rest of our bodies. I want you to reorient yourself, to respect the intellect but delight in your physicality as well. Being aware of the sensuousness of the body can open intuition. This may mean noticing the early signs of pain so you can act on them, trusting your gut about relationships, or awakening your sexuality. We can't afford to ignore such life-informing signals. Being attuned to your body is a treasure.
Tapping into your body's subtle energy can heal. From an intuitive standpoint we are all composed of vibrantly colored energy fields (whose centers are called chakras) that emanate from us. These can be sensed. They contain truths about our physical, emotional, and sexual needs. Energy has different manifestations, from erotic to psychic. Invisible to most people, it can be sensed with intuition. To heal you must first learn to identify energy. Then you can direct it to specific parts of the body. Feeling energy can be very sensual. I assure you, it won't be all work!
A range of answers lies within you. To access them, I'll focus on two intuitive techniques: meditation and remote viewing. Meditation is a state of quite that amplifies the intuition. It is the foundation of my spiritual practice. In practical terms meditation lowers blood pressure, relieves stress, can help reverse heart disease, even retard aging.
The method I'll show you is to focus consciously on your breath, to contact a soundless inner pulse. This is your intuitive corse. Your breath will take you there. Once you're accustomed to the quiet, you can use remote viewing, an intuitive technique to move both time and space. It enables you to tune in to the past, present and future, or to visualize a person, place or situation even at a great distance. With this knowledge you can help diagnose illness by picturing the body's organs, predict proper treatment, appraise current therapies -- all mandatory when conventional medicine seems unable to find a cure. Remote viewing also reveals emotional and sexual blocks; it can even let you check out someone before you get involved. All this is possible: College students have been taught basic remote viewing in a few sessions.
Intuition is the language of dreams. We speak it every night, during the REM state, the phase of sleep when our brain waves impart secret healing formulas. This mystic symbology - images, messages, scenarios - has rules different from those in our waking life. A dream's tone can be as restorative as its content; the nonverbal often presides. Also in dreams revelations about illness and relationships are conveyed. Dreams do heal, but first you must retrieve them. During sleep we experience a kind of amnesia. To the intellect dreams are alien, language that does not compute. Dreams cannot be captured by the rational mind alone; intuitive memory is needed. As you learn how to remember and interpret dreams, you'll be able to draw on this form of healing.

Crabby Old Woman
When an old lady died in the geriatric ward of a small hospita lnear Dundee, Scotland, it was believed that she had nothing left of any value.
Later, when the nurses were going through her meagre possessions, they found this poem Its quality and content so impressed the staff that copies were made and distributed to every nurse in the hospital.
One nurse took her copy to Ireland.
The old lady's sole bequest to posterity has since appeared inthe Christmas edition of the News Magazine of the North Ireland Assn. for Mental Health.
A slide presentation has also been made based on her simple, but eloquent poem.
And this little old Scottish lady, with nothing left to give to the world, is now the author of this "anonymous" poem winging across the Internet:
What do you see, nurses? What do you see?
What are you thinking, when you're looking at me?
A crabby old woman, not very wise,
Uncertain of habit, with faraway eyes.
Who dribbles her food, and makes no reply,
When you say in a loud voice, "I do wish you'd try!"
Who seems not to notice, the things that you do,
And forever is losing, a stocking or shoe
Who, resisting or not lets you do as you will,
With bathing and feeding, the long day to fill?
Is that what you're thinking? Is that what you see?
Then open your eyes, nurse, you're not looking at me.
I'll tell you who I am, as I sit here so still,
As I do at your bidding, as I eat at your will.
I'm a small child of ten, with a father and mother,
Brothers and sisters, who love one another.
A young girl of sixteen, with wings on her feet,
Dreaming that soon now, a lover she'll meet.
A bride soon at twenty, my heart gives a leap,
And a vow that I made that I promised to keep.
At twenty-five now, I have young of my own,
Who need me to guide, and a secure happy home.
A woman of thirty, my young now grown fast,
Bound to each other, with ties that should last.
At forty, my young sons, have grown and are gone,
But my man's beside me, to see I don't mourn.
At fifty once more, babies play round my knee,
Again we know children, my loved one and me.
Dark days are upon me, my husband is dead,
I look at the future, I shudder with dread.
For my young are all rearing young of their own,
And I think of the years, and the love that I've known.
I'm now an old woman, and nature is cruel,
'Tis jest to make old age, look like a fool.
The body, it crumbles, grace and vigour depart,
There is now a stone where I once had a heart.
But inside this old carcass, a young girl still dwells,
And now and again, my battered heart swells.
I remember the joys, I remember the pain,
And I'm loving and living Life over again.
I think of the years, all too few, gone too fast,
And accept the stark fact that nothing can last.
So open your eyes, people, open and see,
Not a crabby old woman; Look closer - see ME!!
Remember this poem when you next meet an old person who you might
brush aside without looking at the young soul within.

Missed the message for February 22? You can view it in the archives!
February was a month of detoxing.no question about it. Detoxing, or aligning, or adjusting, or whichever term suits you best were all very prevalent. Reaching the higher realms en masse created a time for great adjustment to a New way and to very New frequencies. Anything not in alignment with our highest selves and our highest soul purpose had the opportunity to leave, if we only chose to go this route.
So then, our bodies needed to let go of older, denser energies as well. And as the pattern continues as it has for several years now, we release in order to allow "room" to receive more light. And in this process we become clearer, the illusions become evident, and we are able to connect to Source in a far better and easier way.
Exhaustion, night sweats, hot flashes, depression, lethargy, lifelessness, untimely menses, strange bowel habits, lots of aches and pains, rashes, bladder infections and so forth are the usual signs that one is "detoxing." This time, much of the detoxing and aligning was evident in the physical body. As I mentioned in the last message, you may have been inspired to cleanse and begin eating a very healthy diet. Living in these higher realms does indeed require a physical vessel that is able to accommodate the higher frequencies.
I am not an expert on the physical body...I have to say that is an area that I know very little about...but I have been eating live foods and cleansing and feel that this will become a New way of living for me. I believe during this time that the weight many of us put on to stay grounded so that we wouldn't feel we were going to disappear will finally come off now that we have "arrived"! (And now drinking lots of pure water is more important then ever before.and of course exercise as well).
If our bodies are clogged up with toxins and dense energy from poor eating habits or even outside toxins, these higher energies are going to interact with our physical vessels in a much more unpleasant way. Several years ago I was told by non-physical beings that purification is a sure fire way to become a vessel for the higher dimensions and just recently my favorite New non-physical being said that if I wanted to see him in the physical, I must purify my body. Funny.all this time I had neglected my body and focused on purifying my mind and emotions!
So then, we have just experienced a time of adjusting and readying ourselves for much New to arrive on the horizon. The more we choose to let go of that is not serving our highest good.either with our relationships, careers, living situations, unhealthy foods, etc., the easier it will be to adjust and arrive in a very New and higher way of being. In these higher frequencies we can literally say, "I am not doing that anymore. No thank you." We can let things go in one instant by simply just letting go .
"I've been operating from my inner child. Why was I doing that all my life? I don't need to be that way anymore! Good-bye! This is who I really am..." All simply through intent alone as we begin to see the illusions and density that we were operating under.
"What was all that healing stuff? Why was I spending so much time trying to "fix" me and everyone else? Why did I think that I had to be intentionally spiritual all the time, only focusing on spiritual activities? Why did I read all those books? Why was I going to so many groups? I forgot that I am here simply to experience, enjoy, create and have fun on this playground called Earth!"
Are you here yet?
Beliefs about helping others, interfering, karma, lessons, the Earth as a school, coming from higher ways that we now know were not higher at all, and on and on. These beliefs and relationships with life and the ways we thought we had to do things are now being illuminated and it is much easier to see that we were so very confused and holding onto some strange belief and reality of what we thought was best and right. As I have said for many years now, life in the higher realms is not what you would think! We have been mis-informed and incorrect about so many things! It's OK to let them go!
Lots to let go of..time to enjoy and experience the beauty of this magnificent planet. Time to let go of the past as that was your last incarnation anyway. You're in a New one now in a New reality.
Which brings me to the latest very pleasant news. This last round of adjusting was a real doozy. We had gone through so much over the past few years. Most of us were really ready for some great and wonderful things to begin occurring and instead we went through a time of detoxing and adjusting and sleeping and exhaustion and confusion. And when we detox, we can feel depression as we are in and looking through the toxins that are up and leaving.
Soooooooooo...at higher levels we said that this was quite enough, thank-you. At times, things can go too far. For instance, one can incarnate into a physical body and experience abuse with the intention that it serve as a catalyst to spur one on and also for the opportunity to transmute these energies. And sometimes things can go too far and the abuse can cause permanent and irreparable damage, there-by negating its original purpose. At these times, a soul can choose to exit, and rightly so.
All this recent adjusting and aligning was certainly necessary, but for many, it is simply wearing us down to a point where we are no longer benefiting from its purpose and intent. As I write this today, February 28, we are beginning to come out of this most recent phase. Basically, "back-up" is arriving. At soul levels we have summoned more supplies..we have summoned more support....we have summoned help from a higher realm that is bringing in new reserves for us..and it is coming with great affection, assistance, support and with an energy that will most assuredly guarantee help with a New foundation that will enable us to do what we need and want to do.
What it looks like for me, is one big commander in charge who is arriving with more food, water, supplies and supports. As if in some kind of war zone of a newly liberated country that has experienced much demolition and destruction, we will be air dropped much to sustain us further...to keep us going....in respect of the challenges we experience during this rare and unusual experience.
For some, things that needed a final wrapping up are finally doing so. Interacting in that old reality after one has come so far ahead felt downright ugly and unpleasant and extremely difficult to go back to. Much of it is finally over, and for those who are willing to let go and trust, you will be catapulted ahead now into some real fun and into an existence that is much more in alignment with who you really are.
Some will be guided to stay in their New and own personal sanctuaries for awhile as the deterioration and illumination continues in the stepping-stone world...staying removed from what is leaving and from the chaos. These individuals will focus on their creativity, therefore bringing into form what they came to contribute.their highest gifts. Wow! It is beautiful to see! And many will be knocking at your doors, but you need not answer. A time to be very discerning regarding who you choose to let in.
OK. So we have Mercury retrograde for much of March. This is an optimal time for going within, staying close to your sanctuary, and connecting with your New and higher purpose and contribution. You can reach higher states of being and connecting during this time and it can be a very special time for extracting and excavating your true self while connecting with these New and higher frequencies as they relate to you on an individual level.
And then with back-up arriving for us in early March, we will be much more easily supported and placed into these positions geographically, relationship wise and purpose wise which we desire and which we have always known belong to us.
We are moving forward with tiny steps, but in a progression that is healthy and stable. Integrate, move forward. Integrate, move forward. And again, the more you are willing to take a chance and let go of anything that is not flowing, is not working, doors that are not opening and things that do not feel good and right, the easier and faster you will arrive in this space of the New that feels wonderful and oh so right.
Always do what feels good. Always go in the direction that lights you up .
March will also be a good time to connect and set your intention for what you desire. With two eclipses, again, this is an optimal time to connect with what you really desire, what is rightfully yours, who you really are, and the back-up and foundation you need to support you in making your own special contribution.
These are simply more phases and steps in the process. Unfolding in a perfect way. And again, the summer months will bring in some real big energies and much more movement. We are now beginning the steps needed to get us to where we will be in the summer...all in perfect and divine order.
Wishing you Heaven in your heart, starlight in your soul, and miracles in your life in these miraculous times. Until next time,
