One of the ways we can access our intuition is through our gut feelings.

As a medical intuitive healer, I have helped countless clients restore the health of their gastrointestinal system.

Frankly, this is usually a two part process:

  1. Address the physical issues. These could be parasites, infections, food sensitivities and food allergies, bad bacteria, imbalance of probiotics, deficiency of digestive enzymes, impaired detoxification, slowed down motility due to serotonin deficiency and more.
  2. Address the emotional issues. Failure to resolve long-term chronic stress usually results in failure to heal your digestive system, no matter how carefully you eat and how diligently you avoid gluten, known food allergies or how dedicated you are to eating exclusively organic food.

Although our feelings may at times seem like a major inconvenience, especially when it comes to our digestive health, when you pay attention your gut can be a source of excellent psychic information.

Why is this the case?

Because your gut contains what is called the enteric nervous system.

Your enteric nervous system is sometimes called your second brain.

It contains about 100 million neurons – more than your spinal cord or your peripheral nervous system.

Many of us think of our G.I. system as our “stomach,” but it actually contains about 29.5 feet of organs stretching from our esophagus to our anus and including your stomach, small intestine and large intestine.

It produces 95 percent of your serotonin – a fact that many people are surprised to learn! That is why, if you actually want to be happy, you need to pay attention to what you eat.

And the serotonin in your gut is just one of about 30 neurotransmitters found there.

Other major brain chemicals that affect the way you feel occur here as well – specifically your dopamine and norepinephrine, which give you drive.

Many people are also surprised to learn that your gut produces 400 times more melatonin than your pineal gland, so if you want to sleep well you have to balance your enteric nervous system.

Unfortunately, people who take SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) antidepressants often discover these psychiatric drugs produce G.I. side effects that upset this delicate balance.

Because your gut is such a huge repository of brain chemicals, you can learn to tune in to your gut feelings to receive intuitive information.

Learning to use your gut is different from using the brain in your head because you will not access your frontal lobes, where logic occurs.

You can think of your gut as your primitive brain – quite literally your gut instincts.

How do you use your gut to tune in to your clairsentience, or psychic feeling?

  1. Shift your awareness to your solar plexus.
  2. Keeping your awareness in this area, think of the person, place or situation you are wanting guidance about.
  3. Now pay attention. Do you feel a sinking feeling? Does the area feel hollow, cold or trembly? On the other hand, do you feel happy, excited or optimistic?
  4. Describe the sensations you are feeling in as great detail as you can. Use words that describe temperature, movement and direction.
  5. Now interpret the feelings you received. Does the person, place or situation you asked for guidance about feel like a good or bad thing?

The thing about using psychic feelings is that they don’t initially translate into logical information.

You have to translate the feeling into words and then decide whether or not to take action on the guidance you receive in this manner.

You can read more about clairsentience, or the gift of psychic feeling, in my recent Amazon No. 1 best seller, What Is Healing? Awaken Your Intuitive Power for Health and Happiness. 

Gut feelings are often the first inkling that you receive that something is not quite right in any situation.

By tuning in to your solar plexus, you can allow yourself to be guided in the moment by your gift of clairsentience.

Frankly, I believe that many people who have chronic G.I. upset have the habit of suppressing or ignoring their gut feelings.

When you take antidepressants, you may simply be masking or blunting the information that your soul is trying very hard to impress into your conscious awareness.

Take the time to feel your gut instincts, interpret them and take action on what you sense.
