Signs and portents are signals from beyond the five senses. The definition of portent is – something that foreshadows a coming event : omen, sign
I have found that many of my clients did not understand the importance of the “feelings” and “intuitions” they have experienced before they finally decided to ask me for help. These feelings are an early warning system that can help you avoid obstacles and major barriers to your success if you recognize them early enough.
They are an indicator that something is wrong and you can ignore them if you wish, but the underlying problem will finally bite you and cause damage which may take years to repair.
The first step is to recognize that your “feelings” and “intuitive awarenesses” are reactions to dangerous situations. They are indicators that something is very wrong in your current or future environment. If you train yourself to recognize these indicators, you will not panic when they appear. Instead, you will have a strategy for investigating what the situation is and a plan of some sort to handle it.
The real danger is that you feel uncomfortable about a social or political situation for a long time and you sink into apathy and no longer have the will to do anything about it when it erupts into a catastrophe.
You may feel that I am making a mountain out of a mole-hill, but I am sure that some of you feel that you can’t change some part of your lives and you don’t know why. If you are not freely creating your life day by day, you are ignoring some huge barrier that has become unconfrontable. What makes this so serious is that you can be paying for counseling sessions with me or someone else and handling all sorts of barriers and worries without touching the real barrier that keeps you frozen in place.
It is almost like the barrier has made itself invisible so that you spend your efforts at self-improvement handling problems that are visible and painful, but confrontable.
I have worked with some really motivated people in the past who made incredible gains in self-awareness and in their ability to get things done but were unable to hold their gains because they were unknowingly avoiding looking at the elephant in the room. They had shut down their awareness of the elephant because they had decided that nothing could be done about it.
There is no situation that cannot be remedied if a person is willing to face the facts and the counter-intentions that are creating the situation. There is a solution for any situation, whether it is a toxic work environment, a toxic relationship, a threatening home environment, or a dangerous totalitarian government situation. Giving up and suffering the effects will buy you time, but will destroy your life eventually.
Deciding what is really important and acting on your decisions will set you free.
We will discuss various real situations and how to spot the indicators before disaster strikes.
