The Challenge of Trusting Your Own Intuition

Earlier this week I did a post entitled Weather Tarot: How Will Typhoon Bolaven Go?.  I dealt the cards out of the sake of my own curiosity, as trying to predict the weather was something that I had never previously done with my tarot deck.  Plus, considering that this was going to be the first typhoon that I had ever experienced in my life, I kind of wanted a little insight as to what I can expect.

The cards that I dealt I felt were quite interesting, so I posted the spread for discussion in order to gain interpretations from others.

Since I was so fascinated by my previous tarot card spread, I also posted Weather Tarot Prediction: How Will Hurricane Isaac Go?.  This time, upon recommendation, I provided my interpretation in the initial post rather than leave it open-ended for readers to only interpret.

But there was an interesting thing I noticed arose within myself when I shared these readings and then provided my own interpretation: My inner self-defeating voices were saying “What if you’re wrong?” and so I wanted to hold back a bit rather than completely share the information I gathered from the cards.

What I find interesting now is how, despite my holding back, my prediction that there would be flooding in New Orleans and that they have not fully prepared or worked together for this storm, did in fact come true.  My initial intuitive interpretation was exactly right-on — so why on earth did I hold back and question it?  It’s a silly reaction that we all so often do.  I suppose to some degree I saw a potentially bad outcome and I didn’t want people to become fearful, but at the same time it is certainly still something that shouldn’t be hidden for the sake of warnings.

It’s a funny concept that not only tarot readers need to learn and deal with but also people of all careers, hobbies, and places is this: Have confidence in your intuition 100%.  Boldly say or follow whatever your initial instinct tells you.  The more confidence and faith you have in your intuition, then the more you open yourself up to intuitive messages.
