The Gift of Intuition with Nila Chambers

Author Nila Chambers is on a mission to help others awaken their intuition. She delivered an inspirational talk to the Academy about how to cultivate our intuition so that we can more easily navigate through life’s challenges. 
In 2018, Nila’s life took a dramatic turning point when she heard an internal voice urging her to get a mammogram. She could not ignore the warning when she heard the voice again a day later, so she booked her appointment promptly. 
Mammogram tests confirmed that she had an aggressive form of breast cancer and required surgery. After the procedure, she learned that the cancer had been stopped in its early stages. The ‘voice’ had literally saved her life.
Throughout her healing journey, Nila allowed her intuition to guide her each step of the way. The experience transformed her life.
 After surviving her ordeal, Nila realised that she needed to help others awaken their intuition. She wrote her first book “The Gift of Intuition” and now gives talks, runs workshops, and guides fortnightly circles in the Avalon community.
Nila explained that we have five physical senses and five spiritual senses, which have not been fully developed. “Intuition is one of the spiritual senses that we have ignored, largely because of our over-reliance on the intellect. “|Everyone is born with intuitive abilities, which they experience without realising it. Intuition can come in the form of feeling the urge to eat a healthy food that has nutrients your body needs. It also may come as a sense of direction when driving, or thinking about someone just before they call you. 
Intuition helps to guide you on your life path and acts for your highest good. It can help you confirm a decision you want to make, access information you need, or protect you in dangerous situations. 
Like any skill, the more you use your sense of intuition, the stronger it becomes. 
We can get messages from our Higher Guidance in many ways. It can appear through the people you talk to, a picture or book that catches your attention, or in nature through animals. We need to learn to listen with our hearts. 
“The ancients used to look for signs in nature or messages from the animals. We can also learn to develop those skills.” 
When you act on your intuition, your life turns out better than you could have planned. It also helps you to build confidence and trust in the Universe.
 If you learn to use intuition to solve problems, the results can surprise you in unexpected ways. “Although we use the rational mind to manage systems and procedures, the mind doesn’t understand the big picture or deeper purpose -like intuition does.” 
One way to develop your intuition is by cultivating spiritual practices – like chanting, meditation and prayer. Mindfulness or living in the moment can sharpen your intuition. 
“Too many of us are easily distracted by our devices or addictions that we don’t pay attention to the world around us. “ 
You can cultivate a stronger connection to your intuitive guidance by becoming aware of your energy and frequency levels. The higher your energy and frequency levels, the easier it is to receive intuitive guidance. 
You can clear out negative energies by decluttering your mind, body and environment .
Positive thoughts help to raise your frequency levels. Self limiting thoughts and behaviours lower your energy. Surround yourself with supportive people at home and in your work environment. Keep your body healthy with high vibrational food and exercise. Maintain a home that is clean and clear of clutter. Get rid of the old so that the new can come in. 
At the end of the evening, Nila guided us to practice intuitive development exercises in pair-work. Participants were surprised at how well they went with their partners. 
Nila’s book “The Gift of Intuition” provides more exercises to develop your intuition. 
Nila runs a fortnightly circle at Avalon to help you develop your intuition. You can also subscribe to her newsletter.

Animal Communication Trainings with Jacqueline Buckingham

Animal communication is a skill that we are all born with.  Many of us already know when our animals are asking to be fed or walked or ridden, but sometimes their behaviour is a mystery. Why do they bark at everything, start chewing things they shouldn’t or stop jumping? Using animal communication we can ask and work with them to find a solution. 
Now you can learn the basic skills, practice communicating with animals remotely and be gently guided to rediscover this natural ability. 
International animal communication trainer Jacqueline Buckingham is leading weekend trainings across NSW in 2020.
