Intuition is a wonderful tool for self-healing and helping others to heal DB: How did you come into using your intuitive skills? FM: In college I was looking for a way to practice spirituality after being dispirited by Catholicism. I was seeking other ways to express my spiritual nature, and a friend in college introduced me to the Hindu meditation practice called Divine Science of the Soul. As I began to practice this method, I started to open up more clairvoyantly, clairaudiently, and telepathically. It just seemed to be an automatic process that went along, for me, with the meditation practice. During meditations, I would often go into spontaneous inner healing of myself releasing sad emotions, healing physical pain and so on. Over a period of seven years, I began to develop a personal system of healing myself in meditation, using my intuitive awareness, which was developing at a rapid rate as I sat in this contemplative process. DB: And how did you start using that to help others? FM In one of my meditations, I had a directional epiphany. I went into intuitive inquiry, and I asked what my path was this lifetime. I heard a feminine voice (very clearly not my inner voice) which said, Your path is to heal people by reading the colors in their aura. This was in my early 20s and I had no idea what it meant. And at that point, I began searching looking for ways to follow that path. I started looking for mentors and teachers as there were no intuitive or healing schools where I lived DB: As youve worked with your intuition through the years, what shifts have you noticed in the intuition, as its developed and as youve developed?
