Ep #181: Intuition: Tapping into Your Knowing

The Midlife Sex Coach for Women™ Podcast with Dr. Sonia Wright | Intuition: Tapping into Your Knowing

As women, we so often push down the whispers of our intuition like we push down our sexuality, our needs, and our dreams. But Diamonds, your soul is telling you what it wants you to know and you need to listen.

Hey, hey, hey, Diamonds, it’s time to talk. Alright, as usual, it’s early in the morning and it’s just you and me and it’s time to talk. Hello Diamonds, how are you doing? We are continuing on our series using the tarot cards to just talk about different concepts and ideas. We’re going to be talking about the high priestess today, which is part of the major arcana.

But before we talk about that, I just want to tell you something funny that happened in my life. So I was dreaming last night and I had this really intense dream and I woke up and I was mad. I was angry, and I was specifically angry at Dr. K. She didn’t even do anything. It was my dream and stuff happened in my dream and then I woke up so pissed off and I had to talk to myself and say, “Hey. Hey, Sonia, first of all, this is only a dream. It’s not reality”.

So what happened in the dream, I think we were at an art museum and I lost something which I’m always losing things and I happened to lose my purse, something big this time. And usually Dr. K is always checking and making sure that I have everything I need and I want. This is what happens when somebody takes too good a care of you. But she wasn’t there. She was off talking to a friend and so she didn’t notice that I dropped my purse and I left it somewhere.

And so, and actually now that I’m thinking about the dream, it was left under a Christmas tree for some reason. But I came back and I found the purse so I was super excited about that. But I looked in my purse and my phone was missing and my credit cards were missing. For some reason, the cash was still there. People today are like, “Don’t nobody want your cash.” You can’t use it in half of the places that you want to use it.

I gave my daughters some money to go grab a drink or a snack at the mall and they came back and gave me back the money because they said that the kiosk would not take the money, everything had to be a credit card these days. So maybe that’s why in my dream the cash was still there, but the credit cards were gone and my phone was gone. And I had the audacity in the dream to be mad at Dr. K because she didn’t watch over my stuff that I lost at the beginning.

And then I couldn’t reach her because I didn’t have my phone to tell her that I needed some assistance. So I woke up from that dream and it must have been a very realistic dream because I was really upset about it and I was very mad. And I always get up earlier. So this morning I was up and I texted her about something and then I said, “By the way, I just want you to know that I’m also mad at you.” And she’s like, “You can’t be mad at me for something I didn’t do.” And I was like, “Why not.”

But the reason that I mention that is, we’re talking about the high priestess today and the high priestess is all about your intuition. It’s about interpreting your dreams. It’s about thinking and trusting your inner wisdom. So I like to use Chris-Anne Light Seer’s tarot deck and book. And it says, under the high priestess it says, dreams, powerful visions, psychic insights, serendipity, meditation, introspection, intuition and a spiritual experience.

I love the fact that it is a spiritual experience because I think of sex as a very spiritual experience. And I feel like sex highlights our inner priestess and allows her to flow. And I’ll talk a little bit more about that. But it talks about the fact that the high priestess is on the edge of the realm between the two, between the dream world, the spiritual world, and the reality of what life is at this point in time.

And that was kind of reminding me of when I woke up with this dream, where it was in the dream world, but it felt like it had happened. I woke up mad that I had lost my phone and my credit cards. And then I realized, no, that didn’t actually happen. I had to talk myself down from that. But the high priestess kind of sits between the two worlds. And you can take what’s in your dream world and bring it into your reality. And honestly, look at that, if you think about it, it’s also around our beliefs and our thoughts and ideas.

So as a coach, a life coach and a sex coach, our dreams, our thoughts, our ideas become something that are so important and we get to take our dreams and our intuition and bring it into the realm of reality. And that’s what we’re talking about today. So the high priestess sits on the edge of this realm between the two worlds. And intuition helps to bring that into this world.

Understand that a profound wisdom flows through the high priestess, flows through that part of you. And I want to make it clear that the high priestess is within you, is part of you. It’s a characteristic or a part of your whole. So within you is this profound wisdom that flows. So often we look outside of ourselves to find the answer to things. we look outside of ourselves, maybe we don’t even trust ourselves, and so we look to others to tell us what to do, what to believe, what to think, what decisions to make.

But the high priestess reminds us, and intuition reminds us that we have what we need within us. So we’re talking about intuition. We’re talking about trusting ourselves. We’re talking about having an understanding, a knowing, a feeling and going with that and trusting that. I think we get so far away from it, especially women, we feel we can’t trust ourselves, we can’t trust our intuition. And honestly, that’s what gets us into trouble.

We know usually when we’re physically in danger and then often we tell ourselves, no, it’s not like that and then something might happen. Whereas if we really listened to ourselves and not focused on the people pleasing side of things or not making waves or anything like that. So intuition tells us how to stay safe, it tells us how to blossom and grow. But we also need to do our part, which is to listen to that inner voice, that inner knowing and to kind of hone that skill of listening and understanding.

When we get up in the morning, I love that time. That’s why I’m definitely a morning person. I love that time because it’s when all the stuff in the world, this concrete materialistic world that we live in, all of that is still kind of asleep and our intuition gets to be there. We get to listen to our soul, what our soul is telling us. And that’s another way to think of intuition. It’s like a divine whisper. And Chris-Anne is saying that your soul is divinely whispering to you. And I say your heart’s desires.

So what early in the morning or if you’re a late night person, what is your soul whispering to you late at night? What does your intuition say? Take note of things that are happening around you, things that seem to be coincidental. Note that there’s a synchronicity between that dream place and the reality of where we are in this world, it works together. And understand that you already know the answers. The wisdom is already within you.

So this is about trusting your intuition, trusting yourself, trusting your sexuality, trusting that inner voice. And sometimes we push that inner voice down so much, we push our sexuality down so much and we’re like, “I don’t feel comfortable in it, I’m not sure if this is how I get to be and how I get to express myself.” You do get to express yourself. You do get to learn to be comfortable in your sexuality. You do get to let that grow. And the part of you that’s the high priestess is very, very much tapped into your sexuality. So that’s another reason why I like the high priestess.

But I also say that I’m a very logical person myself and I have not always been listening to intuition because logic seems safer than intuition. Logic seems grounded in facts and intuition is not necessarily grounded in facts. Sometimes we don’t know, but we just have a knowing, a feeling that this is something that we should do.

So this is going to be just a quick, short podcast today. But just because it’s short doesn’t mean that it’s not powerful. I want you to be with your intuition, about things that you want in your life, about what the spirit is telling you. And also about what your sexuality is telling you, what dreams and fantasies come to you around your sexuality. What would you like to change in terms of the sexual intimacy in your life? These are questions. These are questions that I have for you, that I have for my Diamonds.

And each one of my Diamonds, you always hear me say this. You’re individual, you’re individual in terms of you’re unique, there’s nobody else like you. Your intuition is specifically for you. It’s your soul telling you about your heart’s desires. It’s your soul telling you what it wants you to know. It’s that wisdom that the soul wants you to know. So those are important things to understand.

And one last thing I want to talk about is, I was coaching a group last night on experiencing amazing orgasms. And we were having such a good time with it. But what it made me think about with the high priestess is, orgasms and pleasure are a way to connect with your inner high priestess. It’s the way to connect to your intuition. And so I’m totally into self-pleasure and masturbation because it also brings you into a different realm. It kind of strips away all the superfluous stuff and you’re in your soul.

When you have an orgasm, it’s like your soul bursting open, but it also allows you to float and be in that place, that inner spirit place. So it becomes something that’s important where you can tap into your intuition. You can tap into your high priestess. You can tap into that pleasure. You can float and feel and think and connect. So sexuality, sexual intimacy, orgasms, pleasure, I think that they’re all part of the high priestess, part of the tuition. It’s like a feedback loop between the two.

There’s nothing like, if you want to be logical about the whole thing, after you have an orgasm, you’re basically drenched in oxytocin and you’re floating. And what better time and place to tap into your intuition, to tap into that high priestess to hear what you already know but you may be afraid of hearing. But there’s something about when we are in a pleasure state or post pleasure state and we’re just so relaxed that we can allow the little whispers of our heart to come in.

So I’m 100% encouraging you for self-pleasure and relaxation and to listen. Use it as a way to listen and to get in touch with your intuition and find out what it is that your heart wants you to hear, what your soul wants you to hear. So the high priestess, very interesting. She’s between this realm and the other realm, between the dream and the reality, between what we’d like and manifesting it into reality. And we talked about manifesting when we were talking about the magician.

So we’ve talked about starting new adventures. We’ve talked about manifesting. I think we’re bringing that, what does our heart want, what does our soul want, what is the knowing, kind of bringing that in and kind of weaving that into what else we’ve been talking about. The high priestess basically is symbolism for our intuition and our knowing and trusting ourselves and connecting with ourselves, spiritually and sexually. And understanding that it’s all intertwined, it’s all interconnected and we get to have pleasure. And we get to understand ourselves and we get to connect with ourselves.

So short and sweet. I’ve got to go apologize to Dr. K for being mad at her this morning for something she never did. And my Diamonds, I’m going to leave you with this question which is, what is your intuition saying to you? What is the knowing that you’d like to pursue? We’re heading into March now. And so that’s the question that I have for you. What does your heart want to follow? Trust yourself. Trust your heart. Trust in this process of manifesting, trust the little feeling that sends you in one direction on your new adventure and manifest it.

Alright, Dr. Sonia is out, short, sweet, but love you so much. Alright, have a great day, Diamonds.
