What is Spiritual Intuitive Counseling?
The word “intuit” and “intuition” are defined in the Oxford Complete Wordfinder as the following: “intuit” ...to receive knowledge by direct perception. Intuition is defined as: “immediate apprehension by the mind without reasoning and it is considered immediate insight.”
The following is a list of words that many people may use when trying to explain the experience of “intuition”: instinct, insight, inspiration, premonition, foreboding, hunch, impression, notion, inkling, funny feeling, and sneaking suspicion.
The Buddhism word for intuition is “satori” which means “sudden enlightenment.”
Parapsychology research uses the word “psi” which is the knowing and sensing that overextends logic, analysis, and rational thoughts.
Many researchers in various professional fields would like to know how one "knows" information which seems to bypass the normal cognitive thoughts, perceptions or logic.
There are three ways of “knowing” and sometimes people are confused about the difference in each. The first way of "knowing" is acquired by knowledge received from personal life experience. A traditional Counselor or Therapist, with personal life experiences known as "knowledge” may have a minimum of intuitive abilities. They would have acquired professional training. They may provide quality counseling BUT they may not have the depth of intuitive experiences to help the client gain deeper insight for greater personal change and development. The professional training along with intuitive skills are crucial today with the rapid changes and stress experienced in life whether one is the therapist or the client.
The second way of "knowing" is through intuition. One may notice that highly intuitive professional people may call themselves Intuitive Counselors, Medical Intuitives, or Empathics, etc.
The third way of "knowing" is that of “Spiritual Intuition.” Just like intuition, the word spiritual indicates an ability to bypass the five senses and the "knowing" appears to be a deeper state of the mind with information that seems to come from out of nowhere at odd or unpredictable times with no apparent reason for the timing of the information. It is almost certain to be personally transformative in nature with others. This type of knowledge goes well beyond a traditional counseling session. This can be very transformative and healing for the client. Many times, there can be a breakthrough in fewer sessions for the client due to this higher level of knowledge within a session.
Spiritual Intuitive information seems to be more complex and it is very hard to ignore the incoming information whether the details are positive or negative. The information provided to a Spiritual Intuitive provides definite proof of some deep and divine source of inspiration, guidance, and protection.
A Spiritual Intuitive Counselor is more than the traditional Counselor working with personal issues. The Spiritual Intuitive Counselor has access to much more detailed information, inspiration, and insight to further assist the client. The client may be interested in learning about intuitive skills to further their personal growth. The client can become a more independent person in the future as they develop these intuitive skills to more effective levels. This helps the client become more confident in relating to others in one's life.
Spiritual Intuitive counseling sessions help the client work on specific personal concerns so that a "breakthrough" is possible - just as it would be in traditional counseling. The Spiritual Intuitive abilities of the Therapist or Counselor bring the client to a greater level of insight, inner peace, and sense of direction.
