Could Getting Outside be the Key to Growing Your Intuition?

I recently had the pleasure of spending a morning hiking in the ancient Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. As my guide led me into the forest and “off the beaten path,” she reminded me of how much stronger our intuition is when we are out in nature. This is due to our vibration being naturally higher when we are outside, she said.

And, when you think about it, we all have an innate knowing of this to be true.

How many times have you or someone else you know been upset about something and needed to get outside and “get some air” or “walk it off?” We instinctively know that getting outside will make us feel better.

Many of us have experienced that luscious feeling of relaxation while playing in a park, laying in the grass, staring up at the sky, sitting by water, camping in the woods or simply opening the windows and letting the breeze flow in.

Our sweet pup, Django, would spend 24/7/365 outside if he could. He always gets that disappointed look on his face when it’s time to go inside – unless, of course, he knows he’s getting food when he goes in. Animals have that knowing of what is and is not good for them, and Django, who’s very sensitive to energy, knows that being outside is good for him.

How often have you heard someone or something being described as a “breath of fresh air?”

Meditation and yoga practices feel deeper when we are outside.

A calmer and more peaceful state of mind becomes so much more accessible when we are outside.

For the most part, we don’t really need to be convinced, do we?

And, here’s where we begin to tie in magical tools to this higher vibrational state of being and increased intuition when we are out in nature.

You may recall me mentioning in a previous post that magical tools are a way to awaken, use and develop your intuition. Oracle cards, for example, are filled with lots of magic; however, it takes your hands, your energy and your intuition to bring their guidance forth.

A major purpose – and some would say the main purpose – of magical tools is to strengthen and trust your intuition.

Now stay with me – we’re almost to the point…

When you are outside, raising that beautiful vibration of yours, you are also drinking in the relaxation, feeling calmer by the minute. You are coming more fully into the present moment. Your mind is quieting down.

And, what’s a huge key to accessing your intuition? Quieting your mind!!! Ding! Ding! Ding! Oh, I’m sorry – that was much too loud. ding, ding, ding. 😅

So, there you have it. Getting outside allows the mind to quiet, which then allows you to better hear the whispers of your intuition. As time goes on, those whispers are more easily heard as your intuition grows and strengthens.

You may be wondering, “How much outside time is enough? How deep into nature do I have to get?”

The answer is to keep it simple, don’t stress out about it and go according to how you feel and how much quieting your mind may need.

I have had a range of experiences from sitting on my back porch with my feet on the ground to my glorious morning hike in the mountains. Any time you can get outside is perfect time.

It might be getting up a few minutes early to take a short walk outside to get centered for the day, taking your yoga practice outside, eating outside during your lunch break or for dinner, stopping at a park, beach, or lake for a 15-minute stroll on your way home, sitting outside in the evening after dinner. Whatever is easy, accessible and pleasurable is best, because that is what most of us will do consistently.

It could also be an intentional couple of hours meandering in the woods, taking in the sights, smells, sounds, and textures, popularly called ‘forest bathing.’

The possibilities are endless and well worth it.

As a species, we evolved in nature. We now have evolved further and become industrialized and disconnected with nature, and Mother Earth now longs to connect with us again. She wishes to bring us back to that primal, instinctual knowing that animals have, which many of us have forgotten.

So, take that meditation practice outside. Take a walk after dinner. Get your toes in the water. Get your bare feet on the grass. Bathe in the glorious forest or soak in the waters, if you can. Mother Earth and enhanced intuition are waiting there to connect with you.

Wishing you all the best that life has to offer,

How to Take Advantage of the Lion’s Gate Portal

It’s Robyn here with your latest dose of magical tools! Enjoy!

There’s been a lot of buzz lately about the Lion’s Gate portal, which happens every year, peaking on August 8th (hence it sometimes being called the 8/8 portal). It feels as though lots of questions are hanging in the air …

What is a Lion’s Gate and why is it special?

What does it mean for me?

Is there something I should be doing?

These are all great questions, and I will be happy to give you the skinny in this latest post about magical tools!

What is the Lion’s Gate portal, and why might I care about it?

Of course, our fabulous Kim Woods has touched on this Lion’s Gate portal in her August 2021 monthly forecast, which you can find here (it’s a must read!). And, because Kim is the world-class astrologer, let’s get the technical explanation from an excerpt from her monthly forecast:

“On August 8th every year, the fixed star Sirius illuminates the head of the constellation of Leo, known as the LION GATE. Many portent of stellar channeling energy and messages, giving you the ability to maximize creativity and healing.”

The Lion’s Gate portal lasts from July 28th to August 12th, with the peak of the energy being August 8th. There’s also talk of meteor showers potentiating this energy through August 14th this year. So, this is a nice period of time to experience and work with these energies!

As Kim mentioned, this is a time of greater connection with our intuition, with our Higher Selves, if we are open to it. We can really open up to receive that guidance and direct it at the areas in our lives where we may have habits or may be repeating patterns that aren’t helpful in our journey to being our happiest, most fulfilled, and most successful selves.

This alignment of Sirius, often called our ‘spiritual sun,’ with the constellation Leo when the Sun is also in Leo creates amazing opportunities for us. This year, 2021, the peak of the Lion’s Gate portal falls on the New Moon, August 8th. This, my friends, is a beautiful alignment!

The time leading up to the New Moon, as the energy is waning from the Full Moon, is ideal for evaluating what is not serving you in your life, identifying what you are ready to let go of, and coming to a culmination in releasing it. How powerful that the contemplative pause and releasing of the New Moon is happening at the peak of the Lion’s Gate!!!

As the New Moon energy kicks in, it’s a great time to think about and plan what you want to bring into your life, now that you’ve made space for it by letting go of that which was not serving you. Set those intentions as you get to the other side of the peak of the New Moon and the energy is beginning to build again as we move towards the Full Moon.

This cycle of the New and Full Moons – releasing, setting intentions, and manifesting – is nothing new; however, think about your ability to evaluate, release and bring the new in being amplified by the discernment of the heightened guidance that we have access to during the Lion’s Gate … Yowza!!!

Bottom line, this is an excellent time for crazy good connection with your intuition and leveraging that to take a big step toward your best life in all areas of your life that you desire – health, relationships, finances, business, career, you name it!

I’m all for it! Now what do I DO?!

You understand the possibilities of the Lion’s Gate portal, and now you want to play with those energies! Wahoo!!!

The first thing you want to do is to tap in to that gorgeous inner knowing that we all innately have (and is powered up by the Lion’s Gate) to take a good look at your life in the context of your purpose, mission and goals. If you’re not clear on these, this is an amazing time to get that clarity!

What in your life is helping you towards those goals and what is keeping you from them? In other words, what do you want to amplify and what do you want to let go of or modify?

This requires getting quiet so that you can hear the guidance and messages that are coming to you: meditation, journaling, relaxing baths, walks out in nature, divination tools such as pendulums, runes, tarot cards, and oracle decks. (Did I mention that we are in the final stages of developing an incredible and luscious oracle deck?! Oh, yes! Stay tuned!)

During the time leading up to the New Moon and Lion’s Gate on August 8th, the idea is to reflect and get clear on what you want to amplify in your life and what you want to change or release.

If you are so moved, you can have a lovely ceremony of releasing that which no longer serves you, with gratitude. This could include getting into water (especially the ocean or other natural body of water) and letting it go, writing it down and safely burning it, or putting your bare feet on the ground and releasing it down through your feet into Mother Earth (don’t worry – she takes it as a gift 💚).

Want some help? Join Kim for every New and Full Moon in the Power Up Your Intuition with True KLT™ group where she talks about the energies and does the perfect ritual for exactly what you will need!

Just after the New Moon has peaked is the time to name and claim what you’re amplifying in your life and the wonderful new things that you want to bring in to fill the open space of what you’ve released. This is the time to set and state your intentions, and the Lion’s Gate makes this time that much more powerful!

Writing and speaking your intentions is a great way to power them up in this time right after the New Moon (the first 24 hours or so). Make sure that your intentions are positive – in other words, put your focus, energy and attention on what you desire to come into being rather than what you don’t want.

You might like to use crystals to help with your intentions. Rose quartz is great for matters of the heart and self-love. Citrine is the go-to stone for abundance and success in purpose and business. Amethyst helps with growing intuition and inner knowing. Clear quartz can amplify all intentions, just be absolutely positive that it’s what you want! There are lots of wonderful stones that can assist you here.

Do some research and see what crystals resonate with you. You can set the stones on top of your written intentions or hold them as you speak the intentions and meditate on them.

As the Lion’s Gate energy begins to dwindle, and we move toward the First Quarter Moon on August 15th, make a plan around how you want to actuate these intentions in your life. Is it a new health routine, creating that new offering in your business or perhaps cleaning out that closet that’s been driving you crazy!

Continue to use that energy to tap into your guidance to make your best plan and then get ready to bring it to life beginning around the 15th! Don’t force it. Do what feels right, and let things line up for you wherever possible!
