When Faith and Function Collide
Make clear goals in your life.
When you have clear goals and stick to them, intuition and "right action" is automatically engaged. You become aware of these natural gifts in an organic way.
Do not "swallow" any system whole.
Take what is useful and in line with your beliefs and leave the rest. The best students of intuition and life sort through what is useful for them or their "market" in any modality or teaching and leave the rest behind.
Every human being has light and shadow.
Be as honest about your weaknesses as your strengths. You will find that your community, more often than not, will want to understand and help.
Look at each tool and forget its name.
Ask how you can use it to be a better human being according to your beliefs. Do not go to the head of your place of worship and say, "Is it okay to want to go to a psychic?" Instead, ask how, in your particular faith, the ability to "see ahead" can be properly used.
Ask your church leader to read books like How to Rule the World from Your Couch. No one knows everything. Your leader may find that these simple abilities are not only part of being an effective human being, but also useful to the community when put in the language of your particular religion.
Whether psychics, astrologers or Christians—these are just words. It's how you conduct your life that counts.
I have never entered a house of worship where people gathered to pray and support one another where I did not leave feeling blessed, even if I didn't agree intellectually with everything said. "When two or more gather in my name" has many real meanings to your life, and intuition shows you that you are able to join, even when apart, to create good in the world and in your life.
New York Times best-selling author Laura Day has spent three decades helping individuals, organizations and companies use their innate intuitive abilities to create profound change in their lives. Her new book is How to Rule the World from Your Couch (Simon & Schuster).
