Putting your Woo-Woo out there

Updated: Jan 29

What do I mean by "woo-woo"? All of the traits we have as higher souls that society may not understand and often rolls their eyes at is what I consider to be "woo-woo". It seems to be anything of a magical, spiritual nature that isn't as understood as I had hoped it would be. And, ironically these are the traits that society needs right now. Discernment of life through our intuition, heart and higher selves. Oh what a wonderful world it would be!


I have always had an innate intuition and ability to read energy. I never really talked about it for most of my life. About 20 years ago, I was fortunate to have a group of friends in the Chicago suburbs that allowed me to express that side of myself. After moving to many different states since then, I have yet to find "my tribe" of like-minded souls in my physical community. So I have found my community online in Facebook groups and other social media, and now I can express myself completely on this blog. I love how we can share our true colors and be vulnerable through our sharing of words in private groups. I believe our hearts can be felt through our written word and people may resonate or they don't. If you are here reading this, then you have found a like-minded soul and I am grateful!


It has taken me awhile to allow all of my woo-woo out. As I have felt safe to express my intuitive energetic gifts, more and more can come out.


I remember seeing a few signs of similar abilities in my own mother, but we never really discussed it. She had a gift for knowing exactly when the sirens that we heard almost daily were actually my brother getting hit by a car. Twice she heard sirens and just ran out of the house with a mother's instincts that it was about her own child. I also remember her "knowing" who was calling when the phone rang. Her generation never spoke of such things, probably since no one would believe her. I see similar qualities in myself and my own daughter.


I think society is a bit more open to these "gifts" now, but still they judge and look at us in disbelief or ridicule with those eye rolls. Despite this broad misunderstanding, I embrace my gifts and I am so grateful when I realize how spot on they are. I welcome them with open arms since they have been my "compass" through life. My intuition and my ability to read energy in people, animals and inanimate objects has served me well. I have found myself to be a great barometer of energetics in life for myself, my family and for clients. I have studied many modalities of energy and as helpful as they have been, I trust my heart more than my head in these matters.


Both of my grown children are life coaches and use their intuition and soul gifts to help others and I admire their openness and innate ability to embrace and share what they were born with. I wish for more people to share their hearts and live with deep meaning. Soul connections are just what this planet needs more of!



Tapping in to your higher self can make life much more rewarding! So let your woo-woo out! Dare to embrace the gifts that we all have to live a meaningful life from our soul's yearning and our hearts desire. Ask your heart and feel the answer. It's always been there just like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, look deep inside!
