The Question

This image has been on my phone for about a month...reminding me to make the time to take my son to the beach

I have been getting so many questions from Readers and I hope to answer them on subsequent Thursday Posts.

The interesting part is that for many people who write in, they answer their own question.  Sometimes they don’t see it though and so here I am to point it out.  I often answer my own questions when I am in the process of answering yours.

I woke from a dream in the middle of the night with the thought of some intuitive friends of mine.  I must have been dreaming about a planned get-together that I was joking about the night before.

Then like a flash, I had an image come to mind.  I was looking at it as a far away observer, and zoomed into the scene as if from space.  The image was that particular grey that you see in ocean sand after a rain when everything is wet.

As I zoomed in on the beach, a sundial formed in the sand.

There was a symbol off to the right that I couldn’t quite catch.

Just as fast as it came, it was gone.

I knew it was an intuitive message, because that is the quality of them.  They come and go super fast, like lightning.  If you aren’t paying attention, you miss them.

They don’t look like a dream looks, either.  They are simply a quick, moving snapshot of something.

Apparently, something symbolic – because I don’t yet know what it means!

As I was driving that morning, I was listening to music.  I generally don’t do this, but every once in a while I get pulled to a station.  It flashes through my mind, like instructions, to push a certain button.

So, not one to ignore signs and intuitive flashes, I did.  Here is what was playing:

Question by The Moody Blues (partial lyrics)

Why do we never get an answer

When we’re knocking at the door?

‘Cos when we stop and look around us,
There is nothing that we need

Because the truth is hard to swallow
That’s what the war of love is for

It’s not the way that you say it
When you do those things to me
It’s more the way that you mean it
When you tell me what will be

And when you stop and think about it
You won’t believe it’s true
That all the love you’ve been giving
Has all been meant for you.

Between the silence of the mountains,

And the crashing of the sea,

There lies a land I once lived in,
And she’s waiting there for me
But in the grey of the morning,
My mind becomes confused,
Between the dead and the sleeping,
And the road that I must choose

I’m looking for someone to change my life,
I’m looking for a miracle in my life
And if you could see what it’s done to me,
To lose the love I knew,
Could safely lead me to
The land that I once knew,
To learn as we grow old
The secrets of our soul.

It’s not the way that you say it
When you do those things to me
It’s more the way you really mean it
When you tell me what will be

This is what it meant to me, what I was sent to share with you today:

You have all the answers to your questions available within.

You are a part of the whole, and you are fully capable of making miracles happen.

As you progress, you learn your own secrets.

When we do an intuitive reading or work together as a team in some way, we share the prescience of what will be.

You must be ready to understand and absorb the spirit behind the words.

You make all choices – decisions are not made for you.

If you look for the nods from your spiritual team that you are following your intuition and not your ego, look for repetition (the beach in my flash, the sea in the song).

When you are so moved to help someone, in turn it is love you are giving to yourself.

Learn to follow your intuition before crisis comes along.  Don’t knock on the door.  Be the door.

The “war of love” is your ego fighting against coming back to the love that is the all.

With Love (God, Us, The Everything) everything is possible.

    When you do an intuitive reading do you actually communicate with the person’s spiritual team or do you just get images? Well I guess getting images would be a form of communication is it like visions or just thoughts pictures that come into your mind.

    My cousin actually has these visions where its almost as if she is temporarily in the vision.

    • Hi Todd,

      Yes I communicate with their team. Yes, an image is a direct communication also. It’s different in each person’s reading. I get the message however it is that their team communicates – all clairs.

  2. Julie:
    Your email came in right after I finished listening to a powerful show about making pain sacred. Can I tell you that your message was like the thunder boom after the bolt of lightning! ( in a really great way!)
    Also: I adore the Moody Blues – ‘Question’ is one of my favorite songs. Also: your picture of the heart in the sand is the third ‘heart’ I’ve seen in the last few weeks. Thanks for bringing the message home, as it were.
    My 6 yr old daughter would tell me my Jedi powers were going strong!
    Thanks for your wonderful post-

  3. Julie! I’ve been in awe of your wellspring of wisdom, creativity and compassionate candor for quite some time! So many deep paradigm shifts in my perspective and relationship to reality have been catalyzed by reading your insightful articles, so thank you!

    This article only underscores the deep admiration I feel for you- and it’s sparked in me a question…that I probably already know the answer to, so…here it goes…. 🙂

    I’ve been asking my spirit guides to give multiple signs, to validate some creative, some what unconventional pursuits I’ve been interested in pursuing, that will allow me to help others in a positive, meaningful way, be in a respectful, kind, creatively challenging environment- with the potential to earn an income…

    Since I’ve been asking that question, I’ve seen multiple synchronicities from varied interests I have; working with children, tattoo artistry, vagabond violinist…

    Would it be best to ask my guides to help me narrow it down to the best option I could choose now, that will be the most helpful and of service to others? Or does this mean that each of these unique interests that I harbor, could potentially be a viable means at which I can bring my aspiration to fruition?

    Thanks Julie for delighting us with your genius! The world is certainly a lighter place with you in it!

  4. Hi Julie,
    I loved this post. You are so right too. We always do have the answers inside. A lot of times people just want them validated. Beautiful!

    Hi Julie,

    Often when I am mulling over a problem which I have difficulty finding an answer to, the answer appears in my mind later at all the wrong times. It could be during a gym session. I remember walking back and forth to the counter to get some paper to jot down my ideas before they disappear forever.

    I agree that we have the answer to all the questions we have within us. It is a matter of watching and waiting patiently for the answer to become clear to us. It will when we are ready to receive it. Since it can come at any time, it is best to have a way to record it before we lose those intuitive flashes forever.

    Thank you for sharing this lovely article!

  6. Lately I haven’t been getting orders for readings (well, not more than 2 a week) but article ideas have been pouring into my brain like a faucet with strong water pressure.

    I sat down and asked “why?” and the answer came through me via, you guessed it…automatic writing. I’m meant to be writing SOMETHING more than a blog post. My next question is “What?” and I don’t yet have my answer.

  7. “Be the door.” That was like an aha moment! Great post. I don’t often see things, but I often know things. Something will just come into my awareness, like knowing what one of my kids is doing (this doesn’t always work!), or knowing that something is wrong with someone. This knowledge is sometimes very specific, but more often is general. For example, I knew recently that a friend was in trouble, but not the nature of the trouble. It was enough, though, for me to call and find out. Anyway, your level of intuitive awareness is remarkable and I’m sure it means a lot to you and to all who benefit from it, whether directly with one on one sessions, or indirectly like all of your readers, including me!

    • Hi Galen,

      Well you know, everyone is at least a little bit intuitive. It simply takes practice, and you can grow by leaps and bounds. Sounds to me like you are already pretty darn plugged in!

  8. Ooooo. Like this a lot. Thanks! I do find that most questions I have, I do already know the answers to. Sometimes I look to my psychic friends to get a broader perspective on something; but I do already know the answer to my question.

    • Hi Sue,

      The recorder is a great idea. I more often find myself pulling over to the side of the road and writing in a little notebook I carry in my purse. Don’t worry, even psychics need psychics sometimes 🙂

  9. > As you progress, you learn your own secrets.
    So true. And we become more of who we already are. It’s like cracking open the driver’s guide and really making the most of what we’ve got.

  10. Dear Julie,
    I could so relate to this post! I think once we open our mind to receiving intuitive guidance we receive it. All the answers are truly within.

    If I want a green light for doing something and ask for guidance – I will get it but perhaps not at the moment I ask for it.

    I love how you frame this too: Be the door.
    Don’t wait for circumstances to open the door – be it! Wonderful.

    • Hi Angela,

      Apologies for the delay in posting your comments. They somehow got caught in the spam filter.

      These days I am finding that things are unraveling over time, but when the answers do come they couldn’t be clearer. Patience for the right time and place…

  11. I love the entire message of this article! I find it so true within my own life; each clarity session is my own opportunity to journey within, and I find it sometimes exciting and wonderful when a client sets an intent and I know this is what will expand within my own life as well 🙂
    This speaks to me: “When you are so moved to help someone, in turn it is love you are giving to yourself.”…I believe that what I see strongly in another is a reflection of me, and my connections allow me to learn about myself in ways I wouldn’t otherwise…and sometimes I find I am much more gentle, kind, compassionate when contemplating another’s journey or actions or creation than I am with my own (which is my sign to be kind, gentle, compassionate with *me*).
    What a wonderful affirmation you have provided–thank you!

    • Joy,

      Isn’t it funny how we are often so much nicer to other people than we are to ourselves? It’s the human condition, I guess 🙂 I once watched a two hour Gregg Braeden You Tube episode on Mirroring and it changed the way I look at everything.

  12. You know what the funny thing is about getting answers to these kinds of questions? We usually already know the answers. Everytime I do a reading, for example, my clients always tell me “I feel like I’ve always known that” or “People have been telling me that for a long time”. The answers are already there 🙂
