Recently, a client of many years reached out to me because she had lost her mother’s ring. She had it re-sized as a gift to her daughter and it had come off her own finger. Because it was a Friday evening at the end of a long week, I emailed her back that when I was rested, I would look for it intuitively. I’ve had quite a few interesting success stories with finding lost items, and teaching people how to do that, so I was happy to help her. I got some quick impressions when she first asked: I saw it in grass and that she needed to use the resource of internet for lost-and-found items. I didn’t email her those right away, as I wanted to tune in more deeply. Although first impressions can often be very accurate, I wanted to be “not tired” and go deep into my intuition to get her specific and accurate info. I sort of didn’t trust those first two impressions because I was so tired.
The next day, I got a quick phone call that the items had been found! Before she told me the details, I shared with her my two impressions. Her feedback: she had reached out to ringerfinder.com and a man traveled several hours to come and help her find her ring. It took a couple of hours, but he did find it: in the grass! My client had tried finding the ring herself using an intuitive technique called “dowsing” with yes/no questions. In the house (no) outside the house (no). Front yard? Back Yard? (yes) By driveway? (no) By fence? (yes) She did get the sense outside by the fence. That is where it was found, but it surprised her the ring was over there.
How can you hone your intuition to find lost items? You can try the dowsing strategy, by using a pendulum or other tool, but remember that is limited to yes/no questions. You can also dowse a map. Hold your pendulum over the map and ask “Where is my item?” The pendulum may activate where you should search. I don’t always have dowsing stuff handy with me, so I usually just close my eyes, ask for the information and see what shows up. (If you want to learn more about how to tune-in, click here. I have the three quick & simple steps on my website and seven ways to tell of it is intuition). Dowsing is a long-time tradition that you may have heard of: there are people who use it to find water. My irrigation man uses it to find where sewer lines and water pipe lines are to help him in his job. His work crews are amazed that it works!
Here’s some quick, fun examples of how I’ve used intuition to find lost items:
-A workshop participant lost her key. I closed my eyes and tuned in, right in the middle of the busy workshop room (you can do intuition anywhere) and told her I saw it in the grass and described the area. Additionally, I “saw” that she had forgotten she had a spare in her wallet and could use that to drive home that evening. Her spare key got her home and her other key was found in the area I described.
-Another client had lost raffle tickets for an expensive jewelry item she had sold for a nonprofit fundraiser. She had been up all night cleaning everything to find it and was exhausted. I tuned in for a few minutes and saw it in her kitchen in between beige/manila-colored paper. She laughed in frustration and said her kitchen was full of paper. Ten minutes later, she called, “I’m laughing, I’m crying! It was in an manila envelope! (notice intuition sometimes is not perfectly accurate: I got manila pieces of paper and it was in a manila envelope).
-If you can’t find that piece of clothing your kids have lost, some household item, or something else, ask intuition first and perhaps avoid the stress of frustration and wasted time.
And, my client who found her ring wants me to tell you, use intuition and remember you can ask other people for help…like she did with the helpful man at ringfinder.com.
