Why is it that spiritual acceleration is often a bi product of major life events, challenges or trauma?
I can't speak for all Psychics and Mediums, but for me, I describe my spiritual gifts as having been gently drip fed to me over the years, and often following a period of major challenges, a life milestone or even trauma. With every deeper insight or awareness came immense gratitude for the path that lead me to my heightened sense of self awareness, or a piece of my intuition that had been chiseled off to sculpt it into better detail.
Strangely, this reminds me very much of children and their development. Being a Mother of 3 , I have seen my fair share of patterns of behaviour that are a part of normal healthy human development. One interesting theory that I have based on my experience, is that children always get ratty before a major milestone is hit. The behaviour they seem to display to their parents before these major leaps, is often in the form of clinginess, whinging, anger and fussiness. It's like they are struggling through their own challenge of mastering something new, and their little souls need extra comfort and nurturing to reassure them of their sense of security.
I believe there is a lot of science behind intuition, and primal instincts are weaved into the expansion of our intuitive abilities. This is why I believe, that trauma and challenges we are faced with in life, can often trigger this kind of spiritual growth.
Let's look at the science. We know that when humans are faced with a dangerous situation, we go into fight or flight mode. theverywellmind.com explains "In response to acute stress, the body's sympathetic nervous system is activated due to the sudden release of hormones. The sympathetic nervous systems stimulate the adrenal glands triggering the release of catecholamines, which include adrenaline and noradrenaline. This results in an increase in heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing rate." It is my view that in addition to these symptoms, our intuitive senses become increasingly intensified as the need arises for us to be on high alert.
Primal instincts are are embedded in human DNA, and this is why when we become a parent we see an increase in our intuitive gifts as our protective instincts are birthed with our babies. These primal instincts take over, and our senses to protect are so dominant that we experience this intensification of our psychic senses so that we are best equiped to protect our babies. How often do us Mother's just know what our babies need, without them even being able to ask?
When going through a difficult time, our subconscious is preoccupied wth sorting through our emotions and feelings to respond to the challenge at hand. In these periods, people may find that they often dream heavily and intensely, as your dream weave becomes your safe haven to process, consider and allow you to cipher your unconscious thoughts to bring about a greater clarity and awareness.
How have your spiritual gifts dropped in for you? Can you relate to any of the above?
I'd love to hear any of your experiences, so please drop me an email to say hi, and share.
