Lesson 2 – Intuition is your Imaginary Friend

Your imagination and creativity is located on the right side of your brain and is fuelled by intuition.  The imagination is the creative genius to which the seeds of manifestation reside, nurture and grow.  Intuition (spirit) resides in this beautiful space of unknown possibilities.  When the intuition is accessed, it allows that beautiful inner dialogue to speak from the language of the soul.  It is here that you will be learning to journal with the divine. 

“Spirit Journaling” is about connecting with your inner dialogue and being able to communicate with your intuition through writing.  When it comes to any type of writing you must know how to expand your vision and listen to your intuition.   Allowing the creation of words to express itself by free flowing from the heart, without self-induced interruption.  Better known as interference of ego.  

How does one distinguish between ego and intuition (spirit)?  It will take practice and commitment.  The biggest commitment will be learning to listen and being able to distinguish between your two inner voices.  One voice is being driven purely by spirit and the other voice is by you and your ego.  You will learn that silence will be your new best friend and it is this platform where you can connect with your inner dialogue.   

This is a recap from the last introduction.  For most, spirit speaks from the right side of the brain whereas ego likes to speak from the left. Let’s think of it like duelling pianos.  Spirit will play its music from the right side of your head.  It always creates music you enjoy, love and can understand with passion.  It just flows.  Where as your ego, plays from the left side of your head, it will forcefully play tunes that you may not want to hear, may not like or even know.  All the while, you are the customer sitting in the middle of the pianos trying to decide which one is playing the better song.   The choice will always be yours to make.  Will it be left or the right?  Go with the right.  

You are gifted with intuition and it should be accessible at all times, from the right side.  It is here where things feel “right” and are “right”.  The right side of the brain is based on creation and the left side is logic.  Truthfully, if you are thinking of the answer you are accessing the left side, which is logic.  

That is right, we all have the power to access our intuition.  This is not about being perfect; remember in spirit’s eyes you are already that.  It is about accepting the imperfect you and learning to shine your light on all the stuff that makes up the total sum of ‘YOU’.  There is no judgment here, just have an inner knowing that you do not need to prove yourself, that your gut instinct has a real voice and your inner compass is ready to be guided.   

Do you understand? Good, let us start the first lesson using our imaginations and being introduced to our imaginary friend (or friends).  

Most of us had an imaginary friend (or friends) when we were growing up as children.  This imaginary friend always gave us a sense that they knew everything about us, just like our very best friend.  They would share our space and allow us to be vulnerable.  Allowing us to access our wildest imaginations by creating a safety net with that sense of unconditional love and encouragement.  They helped us grow our 5 senses by expanding our beliefs beyond what we could see and touch in our real physical worlds.  They made us believe that whatever we were willing to imagine was attainable within those limits.  This was the beginning of manifestation in our lives.  This was when we all learned the power too manifest.

Then we grew up and started to adapt to the physical world and no longer wished to access the potential of our imaginations, intuition and creativity.  We decided to leave our pretend imaginary friends back in our childhood, where we thought they belonged.  We adapted our belief systems, goals and values from our tribes.  We became too serious about life and started to lack creativity and passion.  Life became real in the physical world and our days of playing were gone. Why did we do that?  Why did we stop imagining and creating? 

What if these friends were not imaginary at all?  What if these beautiful sensory feelings were your guardian angels or spirit guides?  

Lets begin:

In this lesson you will learn how to access this imaginary friend (friends) and bring them back to life in your journal.   Bring back their characters using all 5 senses, some creativity and a whole lot of imagination.  

  1. Find a quiet space that will be uninterrupted for 20 to 30 minutes.
  2. Create your space for your session – light a candle, burn incense, play music whatever your choice is.  
  3. Burn a small piece of sage (one leaf is all you need), sage essential oil or white sage incense. To clear away the energy of the space and your day.  This is great way to start each session, by cleansing. 
  4. Check in with your mood – do not do any of these exercises if you are in a foul mood.  Always approach these sacred sessions with reverence.
  5. Prep your device (cell phone or laptop) that will play an easy 10-minute guided meditation for you.  Do your best to find a meditation about meeting your spirit guide and opening up your imagination.  Find one that best suits your learning process.
  6. Get yourself grounded before you begin.  You will need to protect your space with the power of white light.  Just close your eyes and imagine a white light circling around and encompassing your writing area.  Breathe it in and out for a few minutes, until you feel safe to start. 
  7. Turn down the lights and relax into your chair.  
  8. Begin your meditation. 
  9. For the next little bit (however long your guided meditation will be) let the meditation guide you.  Your only focus should be being present and listening. DO NOT panic if meditation is not working for you.  It will take practice and lots of it.  Remember this is all about practice and not about being perfect.  We are setting intention here. 
  10. Once you come out of your guided meditation sit still in your silence, long enough to gather any information you may have experienced from the meditation. 
  11. Sit in your silence and focus on your 5 senses.  What are they doing and how are you feeling? Are you cold, tingly, full of emotion?  Note all of your feelings.
  12. When you are ready say “Hello my name is ……….., I would like to invite you to write with me?” Be patient and wait for an answer.  Do your best to hear from the right side of your head.  Sometimes they will say words or just show you signs and symbols.   If they do not answer do not worry.  
  13. Open up your new journal and write the date at the top and an open salutation “Dear…………” You can use Universe, your name, spirit or whatever you like.  
  14. Start to write from the heart.  Let go of control and allow your pen to flow with emotions. Do you remember anything you may have experienced in your guided meditation that might start the writing process? Any words, signs, symbols, colours, feelings, or sensations? 
  15. Do not try to control the process just start writing.   What did you see?  What did you hear?  Let it flow and let us see where it goes.

Here are some examples of questions you can ask:

  • What is your name? Write the first name that you hear.
  • Have you been with me since I have been born? Ask for a memory you will recall.
  • Why did you choose me? How are you feeling when you ask this?
  • Are you from this life or a past life? 
  • What do you look like? They may appear as rays of light and colour.  Have texture and shape.  They may have had a physical body, been an animal or a garden fairy.   The results are really endless.  Use your imagination.  
  • Try drawing what you see – feathers, rainbows, colours, shapes.
  • What is your ethnicity?  Maybe there is a reason you are attracted to Mexican food, the French language, Scottish culture or Japanese plum trees.  Dig deep and see what you find out. 
  • Ask them for a sign or a symbol; showing you that they are truly there in your presence.  Be realistic in this process.  For example do not ask for a pink elephant to jump through your window, cause it would never happen.  Be realistic and ask “show me the number 37 or a white balloon before tomorrow morning.” It will be your job to look for this sign.  Trust me they will show you, I cannot make this stuff up.  

16. When you feel you have written enough information it is time to stop.  End your passage with a “Thank you Spirit (or name if you received one) love……………(your name).  

17. After you have closed up your journal, take a deep breath and close your eyes.  Thank spirit for blessing your space with their presence and bid them farewell until your next session.  

18. Close off your space and honour it until the next time you decide to journal.

The questions and writing out the answers can be endless.  This really is about you and opening up the channel to your spirit through writing.  There is no right or wrong way of doing this.  At the end of the day have fun and know that you just invited your imaginary friend back into your life and now you can call them your spirit guide or angel.
