Welcome to the first episode of Ask Colleen, Spiritual Solutions for Light Situations. In this podcast, Colleen St. Michaels shares her wisdom and experience as a spiritual mentor and guide. In this episode, she focuses on unlocking the power of intuition and how it can guide us through life's challenges. Colleen emphasizes the importance of support and aims to provide informative and supportive content to her listeners.

Shielding Your Energy: The Key to Receiving Intuitive Messages

Shielding our energy is the first step in unlocking the power of intuition. Colleen explains that our energy is our greatest asset and that we need to protect it. Just as we shield our physical bodies from harm, we must also shield our energy from negative influences. Colleen suggests a simple practice of calling upon Archangel Michael to shield and protect our energy. By doing so, we create a clear space for intuitive messages to come through.

Colleen emphasizes that shielding our energy is an act of self-love. It allows us to be observant rather than absorbent of the energies around us. When we are shielded, we can receive intuitive guidance without interference from external influences. This practice is essential for developing a strong connection with our intuition.

Trusting Your Intuition: Listening to the Gentle Voice Within

Trusting our intuition can be challenging, especially when our ego gets in the way. Colleen explains that our ego often speaks with indecisiveness, confusion, and negativity. On the other hand, our intuition speaks with gentleness, decisiveness, and love. It is important to distinguish between the two voices and to listen to the voice of our intuition.

Colleen suggests a simple exercise to practice listening to our intuition. By asking ourselves a question and giving ourselves a few seconds to receive an answer, we can discern whether it is our ego or our intuition speaking. The first answer we receive is usually the voice of our intuition, while subsequent answers may be the voice of our ego. By practicing active listening and trusting our intuition, we can make decisions that align with our true selves.

Intuitive Inspiration: Following the Path Less Traveled

Intuitive inspiration often leads us in a different direction than we are used to. Colleen compares it to receiving letters of the alphabet, where each letter represents a step towards our desired outcome. Our intuition guides us one step at a time, building our confidence and belief along the way. It may take us out of our comfort zone, but it leads us towards what we truly deserve.

Colleen encourages us to embrace intuitive inspiration and invitations, even if they seem foreign or challenging. Our intuition knows what is best for us and will never lead us astray. By following the path less traveled, we can experience personal growth and fulfillment.


In this episode of Ask Colleen, we explored the power of intuition and how it can guide us through life's challenges. Shielding our energy, trusting our intuition, and following intuitive inspiration are key steps in unlocking our intuitive intelligence. By practicing these principles, we can tap into our inherent gifts and create a life aligned with our true selves.

Remember, our intuition is always speaking to us, gently guiding us towards our highest good. It is up to us to listen, trust, and take inspired action. So, embrace your intuition and embark on a journey of self-discovery and spiritual growth.
