Intuition, the next step, can be developed in a similar way. In order to use anything you must know that you have that particular thing or gift. Rely upon it. Test it. Does it work in your affairs? Has intuitive guidance been beneficial to you in practical ways? Have you dared to lead others intuitively? and were they who listened and followed you, visibly benefited? and had they the courage to admit it?
No matter how flowery a message may sound, leave it alone if you cannot make use of it. Advance yourself first by getting more knowledge, and when you become tireless in your effort you will get true intuitive guidance.
When illuminated flashes play upon your mind, question the source and know this: The more you will learn, the more learned are the influences coming through. This is law and you can rely on it that it does not change.
