I can’t board a plane without first checking out the auras of the other passengers. That is because of a story I heard years ago about Edgar Cayce, who is the most documented intuitive and psychic of the 20th century.

For over 40 years, Cayce gave psychic readings to thousands of seekers, diagnosing illnesses and revealing information. He saw auras, the energetic force field that surrounds people, since he was a child.  He thought everyone noticed the various colors emanating from people’s head and shoulders.

Cayce tells a story of shopping in a department store in the early 1940’s and ringing for the elevator. While he was waiting, he noticed some bright red sweaters and wanted to look at them.  However, at that moment, the elevator arrived almost filled with people.  He was suddenly repelled, it seemed very dark inside and he stepped away and told the elevator operator to go on without him.

He went over to look at the sweaters, and then he realized what had made him uneasy; the people in the elevator had no auras. When a person is marked for death the soul begins to withdraw and the aura naturally fades.  As he looked at the sweaters, the elevator cable snapped, the car fell to the basement, and all the occupants were killed.

This is a powerful example of intuition at work. Cayce was operating on pure instinct.  Before his mind could process what was wrong, his intuition told him to step away from the elevator.

How often do you ignore your intuitive nudges? 

Paying attention to the signs and signals you receive everyday beyond your five senses is crucial.  Keep in mind, your intuition is operating all the time. Perhaps instead of recognizing it, you discount it as coincidence or imagination.

Remember Einstein said, “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant.  We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”

It is time to take your gift out and play with it.  To that end, I challenge you to play the  “I am psychic” game.

Here are the steps:

First, get clear on how you primarily receive your intuitive guidance;  it is visual, auditory, through feelings or by just knowing?

Next, set your intention everyday to be intuitive and know it will happen.  Setting your intention is a powerful tool to attract any experience into your life.

Finally, your job is to look for and notice all the intuitive moments as they occur throughout your day.

When you observe your intuition at work, celebrate! Write it down, tell your friends to lock the experience in for you. This is an opportunity to loosen up, play, and let your imagination reawaken.

After playing for a few days, you will recognize your intuition at work.
