    Intuition vs fear

    To whoever decides to help me bring some clarity on this topic , I thank you in advance!

    So I'm trying to figure out between what is intuition feeling in certain situations


    The other day I was heading to an interview and all morning I have been tuned in, turned on and tapped on. And I was feeling so confident about the interview. Everything was flowing and I was even early to the interview. When I got in there they took me in early because they were free so I went along. I get in the room and I had to do a few test and a face to face interview. 20 mins in doing the tests , the interview guy walks in to check on me and I was nearly finished. He says he will come back in 2 mins and that I should get ready for the face to face interview. Btw up to this moment I was feeling fine, a few nerves but I felt good. The moment before he walks in , I get this absolute rush of feeling like I can not breath feeling. Heart beating so fast , It was such intense nervousness I couldn't figure out where it came from. I just couldn't ignore it. The guy walks back in and I nervously stutter and tell him this job is not for me and that it's too far blah blah and we agree and he escorts me out. Now dont get me wrong I do get nervous in interviews and stutter when I don't know the questions but this was so overwhelming I don't know what to make of it.
    Was it intuition telling me that this job is not for me or was it my past thoughts creeping back up and ruining my interview with previous bad experiences?



    Also all day today I've been focusing on being conscious to take advantage of my reality and I saw signs everywhere and I know, when I'm in the mist of being conscious , I feel the "magic" in the air and I lose track of time and date and also I had read people so well. I can read their energies like an open book. No joke! So this happened today, as I was walking in a mall with my mother, we were coming off an accelerator and when we got to the top to get off , I took a few steps and felt like My head spin and got so dizzy I had to literally stop myself from not falling, literally moments after I stopped myself from falling, a lady right across from me falls heavy on her hands. It was so sudden! I could swear to you if I had been verbal and said I'm going to fall in front of my mother and then seeing the lady fall instead, she would have called me a freak and that I saw it coming !! But It felt like the universe wanted me to see or feel this to show me that I was right about being good at reading people and translating their energy..
    So was that the universe showing me signs?

    This isn't the question that you really want to be asking in this situation (and I'll explain that comment in a second) but that sort of answer always seems to frustrate people. So, let me answer your question: It's both. IOW, it's your habit of activating your past thoughts (in your present) which is making you, in that present moment, not a vibrational match to a pleasing experience from that job. As you can tell from your post (and from your own memory), you were (for whatever your good reasons) focusing on something other than what you wanted, which is why you were feeling what you felt.

    There is no such thing as "the right job" (or "the right" lover or "the right" house or...). The notion of "the right" anything is a flawed premise, perpetuated by people who don't understand about how they are creating their reality. You create your reality, which means that you have the ability to take every opportunity (or person, etc.) and attract from them the qualities that you want. Your fear (for whatever reason you were creating that for yourself) was your indicator in that moment that you were focusing in a way that the qualities you were attracting (from the interviewer or the environment or the opportunity, etc.) were qualities which would not please you when they manifest themselves. As you can tell from your post (and from your own memory), you were (for whatever your good reasons) focusing on something other than what you wanted, which is why you were feeling what you felt.

    The reason why I say this isn't the question that you really want to be asking is because that's what you were doing then, in that moment. That's old news. All of your creative power is here, right now. You still have the ability to make this (or any other opportunity) a satisfying opportunity for you to thrive. You would even have that ability if you were to take a job with an organization which you were later to discover was run by people diametrically opposed to what you want. As long as you don't include in your focus what you did in your interview or in your past interviews or how "they" appear to be a mismatch to what you want-- IOW, as long as you find and hold your alignment with what you want, you can attract what you want from wherever you find yourself. That's what the powerful LoA does and that's how powerful your focus is.

    Now, this is good news for you personally, because just yesterday you were telling us about how sort of "been there, done that" you were about Deliberate Creating. So, here's a new, fun challenge for you. (I say "fun" because alignment is fun.) And I don't necessarily mean this particular job, but whichever job you take, with whatever people you wind up working with. Because people are much more complex (and, therefore, have a greater potential for fun in your own alignment) than mere objects or money. You've sort of "graduated" from keeping your crayon within the lines of the coloring book to drawing your shapes and shading it in ways that are pleasing to you. And that's much more interesting to an artist than simply staying within the lines of something that someone else has already drawn.

    So, I'm going to take this opportunity to share with you my favorite Abraham quote about "signs," because it sounds like you're looking for different "signs" than the signs that Abraham encourage us to look for. (Hang on! It's a long one.):

    Quote Originally Posted by WellBeing View Post

    "So, we get it that you want a more obvious sign. But you know the reason that you want a more obvious sign? 'Cuz you're missing the less obvious sign. [Audience chuckles.] So-- [to Audience] You getting that? [Audience agrees.]

    "So, now let's go back to the subject of momentum. Momentum is such an important component of this Law of Attraction business because whatever you're thinking about, LoA is bringing more thoughts like it and that's what momentum is all about.

    "So, in this situation, where you are wanting some positive sign of some positive thing that you are wanting, we can understand why you would want to see the evidence of it. But we really want you to hear us when we say: that in the majority of cases, that you all (not just you [in the HS]) are looking for or needing some evidence that you're on the right path, you are not listening to the subtle guidance that is within you. And that's what causes you then to start looking outside yourself for other conditions or others--IOW, other validation.

    "You're looking for validation for something and we just want to say that looking for validation is backwards from the model which we are wanting you to discover, which is looking for the emotional evidence. Now everyone loves a sign....

    <snip>

    "...It's nice to have those signs, isn't it? But we want you to not need signs. And, when you don't need them, then they come as evidence, evidence all over the place and that's really what you're talking about.

    "So, emotional signs are yours to be had immediately. And, as the momentum ensues-- Can you feel the difference between 'needing a sign for validation' and 'receiving a sign as confirmation'? And that's the difference. That's the difference."

    --Abraham, 3/30/14, Playa del Carmen LandCruise

    And in focusing on what other people are doing, you're permitting them (and what they are doing with their energy) to create in your reality. IOW, that lady created a fall in her reality. But in your focus on "reading other people's energies" or whathaveyou, you invited her vibration to dominate yours and you allowed yourself to conform to the vibration she had going on. The result for you was your manifestation, which you might not have wanted. That's good to know, isn't it?

    Yes. It's showing you what you're doing with your own vibration. In the interview, you were (for whatever reason, in whatever way) focusing on what you did not want. In the mall, you were focusing on what the lady was doing with her vibration to such an extent that you allowed yourself to join in on her vibrational momentum. The question for you is "Are these things that I want to continue to do?" It sort of sounds like your emotional guidance is suggesting otherwise, but that's your call to make.

    Moderator's note: Since you want to discuss your questions, I'm going to move your thread to the Abraham-Hicks Teachings sub-forum, where most of our question-answerers tend to hang out and where our discussions take place.

    Intuition vs fear

    ...
    So I'm trying to figure out between what is intuition feeling in certain situations
    Your inner being (aka, your intuition) NEVER warns you against something.
    Instead, it always calls you toward the wanted!
    And following this call feels wonderful, easy, clear, totally manageable, and inviting.

    When you feel fear, that is you, not allowing your intuition to guide you.




    Here are quote-collections that might serve you on the topics of fear and "signs".

    Fear and Courage

    "Signs" are only LoA, reflecting where you are, vibrationally.

    Tears, goosebumps, shivers, eyes twitching- are sources signs of energy, flowing



    When you feel fear, itīs not source, warning you!
    It ALWAYS ALWAYS means, you are disconnected from source.

    Letīs say, you are in a situation, you didnīt know you where,
    but you are in a situation where there is something to be feared.
    There is a hungry bear, or a forest-fire on itīs way to your camp,
    or, or, or, or, or. So, your guidance-system is CALLING you
    to some place else:

    Well, what happens is, you get filled full -you find yourself full
    of an impulse, to do something!
    And it is NOT SCARY!!
    Itīs an impulse to do something!


    "Why are you packing up?" -"Because Iīm leaving."
    -"Why are you leaving?" -"Because I want to!"
    -"Whatīs this about?" -"Come with me!"

    Iow, you are NOT feeling afraid or paralized.
    You are feeling EMPOWERED, and you are going somewhere-
    because your IB is calling you more to where you WANT to be,
    then to where you are, which is where you donīt want to be.

    (...) When you are in a moment where you feel FEAR,
    THAT is because you are standing in your now, and your IB
    is standing in your real now, and so you are misunderstanding
    the difference in the vibration.
    Your IB is ALWAYS calling you to the higher emotion.

    WHEN YOU FEEL FEAR,
    that fear that makes you tremble,
    YOU ARE NOT IN SYNC WITH YOUR IB.
    That fear ALWAYS means,
    DISCONNECTION from SOURCE.
    ALWAYS.

    And it ONLY is, what it means.
    And any of you who have been in tragerous positions,
    know that! Your adrenalin flows, you can leap tall buildings
    with a single bound, you find yourself capable of
    doing things that you didnīt know you could do-
    and when people say "thank you for your bravery!"
    -you usually say, you heros that live that:

    "I wasnīt brave! I just did, what anybody would do!

    I just did, what anybody would do, given the connection I had,
    and the feeling and impulse I had- that was UNDENIABLE!
    "

    You know this, donīt you!?

    Thank you so much for your help
    Can I just also mention that when I was fully aware and controlling with a complete knowing , I felt the magic in the air all the time!! Is that just my imagination or you feel like everything is magically when you finally able to control your reality

    When you feel something, itīs never invalid! Trust your emotions.
    You really FEEL that. This stance feels empowered, free to choose, literally invincible.


    Live your unlimitedness!

    “Law of attraction is your very best friend.
    And when you go with the flow of these Universal energies,
    you will feel your full empowerment.

    What fun it is to be physically focused
    and have the energy that creates worlds
    flowing through your focus- to assist you in the accomplishment,
    in the creation of anything
    that this space-time reality has inspired within you.

    Feel that feeling of unlimited-ness,
    and understand that in anything less than unlimited-ness,
    there is limitedness that you cannot stand from a nonphysical point of view,
    because the nonphysical part of you truly understands that you are UNLIMITED.

    YOU ARE THE ONE PLACING THE LIMITS.
    We think it would be a good thing for you to CUT THAT OUT.“

    Abraham Hicks, Portland, OR 06/28/2014



    It's important for you to know
    that you are the creator of your own reality.
    But it's also important for you to know that you have teams,
    throngs, of non physical assistance-

    that you've not been accessing in your attitude of
    'I need to go this alone.'

    We want you to understand that not only do you not need to go it alone,
    it's not possible for you to go it alone.
    But it is possible for you to choose disc's where your help isn't,
    and then have a harder journey on your way to where you don't want to go!

    Whereas, you put all of this together,
    and you acknowledge that the path is an easy one and that it's well lighted,
    and if you do just this simple work that we've been talking about,
    so that the path does light up.
    Then not only will it be a path of ease
    but it will be a path of Chronic Happiness!


    And then you'll feel like that invincible being,
    where you're waving this magical wand
    and anything that you point at will open for you!

    And those who are standing back watching you,
    who have not been privy to the vibrational exchange,
    who don't know that LOA is managing the Universe,
    and who do not understand that they are emitting a vibration
    that is being responded to,

    -They will watch you in Amazement! ...,
    And they will call you things like Lucky! ...,
    They will call you things like Fortunate! ...,
    They will marvel at the good fortune that comes to You!
    But they will not understand that you are now ...
    'The Deliberate Creator Of Your Experience.'

    And it's not magic, it's 'Cashing In The Vibrational Currency' that you've always had access to.

    We don't even need to tell you to spend it wisely,
    because it never stops flowing!
    Spend it with Fun ... And with Eagerness!! ... And Often!!!

    ~ Abraham - Seattle Closing 2013

    You are not alone with such experiences.
    My husband was expecting a wonderful job-opportunity after having been invited to a certain interview. But then, the energy of the boss was clashing with him intensely (and totally unexpected)- and my husband couldnīt for the life of him open his mouth for more than just a "good bye" in the end. This never happened before or afterwards again!

    -He said, he wouldnīt have known how to get out of this in any elegant way, and so he was happy that his body/something that regulated his body, was solving the problem.

    And there is the story (while I have no quote ) of Esther, having not yet being in a love-relationship with Jerry.

    Jerry was engaged with another woman, while Esther had fallen in love with him. Now, Jerry was inviting her to his wedding, and Esther couldnīt believe what she was answering- against her will, it just came out of her mouth:

    "I canīt possibly go, and I donīt think you should go, either!"

    -She was shocked of having spoken her heart in this blunt way, because her trained social behavior wanted to block this big times. While on the other hand, it finally got things rolling.

    Abe explained, that sometimes our IB just takes over. It makes us do something, through the crack of least resistance, when we are open enough to follow our best towards our true desire.
    The more intuitive you are, aka the more tuned you are to your IB/source, the easier that happens.
    But as WB said, you get to choose how (and if) you want more of that.

    I have been listening recently to a cruise recording. And one of the questions was about signs.
    They confirmed that we can make things into a sign of anything that we like.
    But really, everything that comes to us is a sign of only one of two things.

    A sign of our being; more in the vortex, or more out of the vortex.

    Everything is a "sign" of our vibration.


    I would say, from what you wrote that you are a person who is super sensitive.
    And Abraham have spoken about this before, it is a bit like when jerry said that he just knew where the car in front was going. And when Abraham say that Esther had a premonition that something was going to happen. Its being sensitive to energy.
    I often have this experience of knowing things that I should not know!!
    It really is about intuition and being tuned in to the energy that knows everything!

    I am super sensitive, and can feel what other people are feeling, and it sounds like you may have this gift also.
    The key is in learning to use it FOR you, rather than being "used" by it, for want of a better word.
    That is what I have done and now it really is a gift that I have, rather than something that used to be contrast for me.

    Maybe you were feeling how the guy was feeling before he walked into the room....he couldn't breathe and was nervous.

    And then you also felt how the women in the mall was feeling just before she fell, she was feeling like her head was spinning and dizzy and then fell over!

    You are learning about making the distinction between whether you are feeling that way yourself, or whether you are picking up how someone else is feeling.

    The key is to consider how you were just feeling BEFORE this happened, to be clearer about whether you are feeling others energy.

    When a person is sensitive to energy like this, it is because they have a very sensitive sense of feeling.
    Just like some people are born with a very sensitive sense of smell, or taste.
    Some people are born with a very sensitive sense of feelings.
    And are able to feel how others are feeling emotionally.

    It is a gift.
    And experience helps you to learn how to use it for your own benefit.
