Finding The Way Past Woo-Woo

I wonder if intuition and clair-senses are dismissed as “woo-woo” because of how uncomfortable they can make people can feel.

Not by the ability itself, but from the associations or packaging.


For instance, being labeled a witch was once a death sentence, and a horrible death at that.

Crystal balls, mystical music and flowing gossamer gowns bring to mind carnival booths more than professionals.

Meditating gurus, chanting monks and Whirling Dervishes don’t make for practical lifestyles.


Bring Colour To Life


The key point to remember is energy just is. Intuition just is. Clair-senses just are.

Our unique self expression acts as a filter of sorts bringing colour to energy.

Beam a light through a prism and a rainbow shines through the other side.


There is no right way or wrong way to access inner wisdom.

What is important is to discover what works for you.

And don’t be surprised if you experience that changing over time.


I’m about as plain as you get.

Jeans, t-shirts, socks and runners. No gowns, no music, no cards, no crystals, no meditating.

Stuff comes to me “on the fly” wherever I am. (But not necessarily whenever I ask. A different topic altogether.)

Don’t expect something more or something else.


This works for me.

Card readers I’ve met varied widely in dress, sitting at a kitchen table to a desk in a rented office space.

I’ve had two amazing readings from a woman who played soft music in a simply appointed spare bedroom while tapping into the vibrations from my watch.

I know lots of people who “know things” – don’t know how, but just do.


Finding what works for you is part of the journey.

Because the journey is all about being ever more you.

Crazy for cats and potatoes, Lorraine's insatiable curiosity of Life leads her to question, explore and push beyond the box. A self-professed "left-brained creative big picture" type, she has an intuitive knack for seeing beyond and beneath first appearances while at the same time nerding out on the details. Most of all she sees and holds others in their highest until they can see it for themselves.

    Hey Lorraine, well said.

    I think the day I got it, was when I was teaching a group of people, and I was tip toeing around a “woo woo” concept, when one of the men in the group offered the comment, “sometimes there’s just a vibe about someone”. That man helped me realize that woo woo has been within the daily culture for a long long time. Getting a vibe, the knowledge we have about placebo’s, having a hunch, hearing a voice, sensing danger or opportunity. It’s been with us throughout our long love affair with the left brain. Our right brain sensing capacity for energy, for knowing, has been present in our everyday language. Now, I try to link to these common words, and build from there – show the link to accepted language/ideas, and extend them.

    Love how you expressed that. It just is. And it comes through in unique ways. All that’s left to do, is to learn how to notice it and respect it for the kind of knowing it brings.

    Great story Marion, and another great example of once we become more aware we are able to see what is already there. Building on our common words is fantastic way to create a safe bridge for people to walk across.
