How Intuition Unveils Your True Self: Sonia Choquette


In this talk, filmed at A-Fest Greece, intuition expert, Sonia Choquette, explains how our intuition can unveil our true self — and a simple technique to access it in mere moments.

Tapping into our intuition and spiritual energy is key — because that is where our genius lies. Too often, we focus on our rational mind, when it’s our intuition that truly knows our spirit — and can help us to know things about ourself that our conscious mind may never know.

She has written 19 bestselling books about intuition, awakening, and personal and creative growth, and helped thousands to tap into their intuition to unlock their inner gifts.

thank you I am beyond honored to be up
00:12
here to to bring us to not close but
00:16
transition so the first thing I want to
00:19
do is I want to invite all of you to put
00:23
your books down because you’re saturated
00:27
it’s enough and so the next thing is to
00:31
notice and I want you to start with just
00:36
first just noticing the energy we’re in
00:39
transition
00:40
intuition is is one of my favorite
00:43
definitions of intuition is to notice
00:46
and to notice the subtle to notice
00:51
what’s really happening and you can’t
00:53
really notice unless you’re in your
00:57
bodies and with all this information
00:59
it’s very easy to spiral out so
01:03
everybody just move around a little bit
01:05
and do this just say wah wah put your
01:13
hand on your heart look to the person
01:15
next to you and wah
01:27
so when when vision asks me if I would
01:34
be interested in closing he asked me
01:37
what what will you say and I said I
01:39
don’t know
01:40
because I never know I’m never in that
01:43
space in my head of knowing I go into a
01:46
different space of listening
01:48
so I was sitting and listening today and
01:51
the first thing that came to me was a
01:54
memory that I had forgotten about when I
01:58
first started traveling as a young woman
02:01
by myself one of the first places that I
02:03
came to was the Oracle at Delphi 35 40
02:09
years ago home was I was just a kid but
02:11
I was pulled there and I had no reason I
02:14
had no no agenda I just had this inner
02:17
compass and I hadn’t thought about that
02:21
for the longest time but what it says
02:22
that the gate is know thyself and
02:25
ultimately everything that brings you
02:28
here whatever the motivation what brings
02:32
you here is this this yearning there’s a
02:36
there’s a void if you will there’s a
02:39
place of a yearning where we want it we
02:43
want to make contact we want to connect
02:47
and we we very understandably we try to
02:52
connect to this energy or that
02:54
information or this event or that dance
02:56
or because the yearning is so strong but
03:01
in fact I truly believe that the
03:04
connection we’re yearning for is the
03:06
connection to my spirit to my true
03:11
nature so I’m going to just first invite
03:15
all of you to take a breath ah
03:20
you know all the information that we got
03:23
this last few days it was just awesome
03:25
and incredible there is a premise
03:28
underneath all of that I need to bring
03:30
to you and the premises you know to for
03:33
example to take care of your body we
03:37
have to be careful not to slip into
03:38
thinking that that that I am defined by
03:41
my body because there are people who are
03:44
incredibly incredibly physically limited
03:46
for whatever spiritual or karmic reasons
03:49
of choice on their journey they’re still
03:51
not limited so it’s optimal to feel good
03:54
but it’s not who we are and then we we
03:58
talk about and I just I just love what I
04:01
heard yesterday about I am enough
04:04
however we need to know that the nature
04:09
of I am enough is only going to work if
04:11
the I am that is saying I am enough is
04:13
the I am of my spirit because the ego is
04:17
never enough ego will never be smart
04:21
enough it’ll never be it’ll never be
04:23
handsome enough it’ll never have enough
04:26
hair it’ll never be thin enough it’ll
04:28
never be clever enough the ego will
04:30
never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever
04:33
be enough because by its nature it’s not
04:38
who we are
04:40
so when we say I am enough let the
04:43
emphasis be on I am and breathe okay
04:51
so now what I would like to invite you
04:53
to do is to share a breath with one
04:55
another so turn to the person next to
04:56
you and share a brother
05:02
okay okay so I want to share with you
05:06
what I see from up here
05:19
or or my favorite is the looming grab on
05:30
that’s not normal
05:33
so let’s try to share a breath it’s just
05:37
relaxed that in my body there is a
05:41
heartbeat and that heartbeat is Who I am
05:44
without that heartbeat there is no
05:47
animation there is no party without that
05:50
heartbeat there is only inertia there’s
05:54
death so turn to the person next to you
05:57
and share a breath that really is not
06:01
jumping over there but giving you room
06:04
to breathe in here and meet them at that
06:06
breath that we share to try that ah
06:11
and don’t try too hard because looming
06:13
feels weird so just relax and in fact do
06:16
a favor and give them a smile because it
06:19
feels really weird for someone to be
06:21
staring at you really somber pretending
06:25
we’re both breathing so okay so ah and
06:35
now share breath and say ah and move
06:43
around a little bit
06:44
ah wah wah now so what are we going to
06:54
do how are we going to encapsulate and
06:57
embody all of these experiences that we
06:59
just had so we don’t lose them and I
07:02
believe that it goes back to what I was
07:04
guided to share about the Oracle of
07:06
Delphi let’s start with know thyself so
07:09
the first thing I want to invite
07:11
everybody to put on a little tool belt
07:18
come on look to the person next you
07:23
giving you stink eye and go to everybody
07:28
and I’m going to give you a couple tools
07:30
for the road so the first tool is to
07:34
breathe because the breath is who you
07:37
are
07:37
so breathe in open your jaw until you
07:41
hear a click and notice how that breath
07:44
drops and even more deeply relax give up
07:49
control take the risk ah move around a
07:56
little bit now the second thing I want
07:58
you to do is I want you to feel the
08:00
vibration in the room what do you feel
08:09
love excitement energy expectation well
08:21
here’s what I feel that the minute I ask
08:25
you to notice the vibration everyone
08:26
stop breathing so now let’s take a
08:29
breath and pay attention to the energy
08:32
and not come up with thoughts and ideas
08:35
but really feel the experience ah
08:40
because the thing that’s going to really
08:42
shift our dynamic that’s going to change
08:44
the matrix is if we actually can allow
08:46
our minds to drop their defenses and to
08:50
actually lean in fearlessly to have a
08:52
real connection first with your own
08:56
breath with life with this world with
08:58
the people around you to really have
09:01
connection because the only way we’re
09:04
really going to biohack anything is if
09:06
there’s a breath in there that gives you
09:08
the word bio life so breathe in ah
09:15
and can you feel the energy it’s not
09:19
really that light is it it’s kind of
09:22
tired so heavy like I want to take a nap
09:26
I’m saturated that’s the real energy
09:29
going on that
09:30
normal that is mental energy so I want
09:35
you to notice that because mental energy
09:37
has a signature has a frequency it’s
09:42
it’s kind of straight line energy it’s
09:45
kind of compartmentalized it’s it’s an
09:47
energy that’s trying to organize things
09:51
and you notice how when you’re in that
09:53
mental energy there’s not a lot of
09:55
breath
09:56
so just breathe again ah so now what I’d
10:02
like to do is I’d like to teach you the
10:04
difference between mental energy and the
10:07
energy of your spirit and the way to do
10:11
that is I’m going to ask if you’re up
10:12
for a few experiences because they don’t
10:16
want to give you any more information
10:18
are you up for some experiences okay all
10:22
40 of you yay so I’m going to first ask
10:25
you something that we’re not rarely
10:27
asked but if you truly want to live that
10:30
magical life if you truly want to make
10:32
that contact with your spirit and with
10:35
the essence of life this is something
10:37
you’re going to have to do and you can’t
10:38
fake it because we feel it you’re going
10:41
to have to put two feet in and play full
10:44
out 100% so are you willing to do that
10:48
for the next few four or five minutes
10:51
we’ve lost about 20 in the last minute
10:54
so think about the part of it second I
10:57
don’t know kind of bored
10:58
I’m saturated I’m done no thanks but
11:01
what if you actually did say I’ll try it
11:05
I’ll give it a go
11:07
when’s the last time you were actually
11:09
asked to put two feet in actually asked
11:12
and you did it without faking or relying
11:16
on the person next to you is the group
11:17
cheerleader do it for you you really
11:20
just did it because you’re showing up
11:22
for you I mean God knows you came all
11:25
this way you paid all this money you’ve
11:27
been on that boat you did all those
11:29
things so why don’t you show up this
11:32
time to the moment so are you willing
11:36
we’re doing better feel the vibration so
11:40
I’m going to ask for 100%
11:43
not for me because I don’t need it it’s
11:46
not between you and I it’s between you
11:48
and you but here’s the thing we don’t
11:51
talk about enough but it’s very true
11:55
is it though you come together though we
11:57
all come together by divine appointment
11:59
and we’re all in the energy of this room
12:01
together we as a group can only shift
12:06
our consciousness to the degree of the
12:10
person holding back because we’re
12:13
sentient beings and we resonate so you
12:16
need to turn to the person next to you
12:18
and say I went to a lot of trouble to be
12:20
here so that better not be you
12:33
okay so full-out
12:37
are we ready to pull out is that 100%
12:44
okay good
12:46
stand up everybody stand up okay so I
12:52
have a couple tools I want to give you
12:55
and we’re going to have to go through
12:56
them very quickly I need three visual
12:58
aids three visual aids three people who
13:01
didn’t get anything this weekend please
13:02
come on up here
13:06
three people were afraid they’re going
13:08
to lose everything that they got please
13:09
come up here three people who wish they
13:12
could take it even further thank you
13:14
come up here come on and they’re in one
13:17
man come on
13:19
all right five visual aids come on up
13:22
okay ten visually it’s okay the first
13:26
thing we’re going to do this is an
13:28
exercise they called the breath of life
13:29
I did it in porta viar-toe and I’ll do
13:31
it again takes three minutes 40 seconds
13:34
the first minute we do it you’re going
13:36
to think okay this is fun more dancing
13:38
the second minute we do it you’re going
13:40
to think okay I’ve had enough dancing
13:42
let’s just sit down I don’t want to miss
13:43
anything the third minute we’re going to
13:45
do you’re going to go screw you I’m over
13:47
it let’s just stop it and then
13:50
something’s going to flip so what I want
13:52
you to do is everybody raise your hands
13:54
above your head open your jaw like a
13:56
baby bird opening to get the worm in the
13:59
morning and go
14:01
and then pull your arms down and go ah
14:05
okay that’s your basic move now every
14:09
few seconds we’re going to do this for
14:11
three minutes and 40 seconds because
14:13
that’s how long it takes to change a
14:14
brain pattern so the first minute you’re
14:17
going to start jumping from the left
14:18
brain to the right brain the tuba
14:19
hemispheres are going to start talking
14:21
to each other
14:21
the next minute the left and right brain
14:24
are going to finally just say they’re
14:26
not going to argue anymore and they’re
14:27
going to get into harmony and they’re
14:28
going to start talking to the heart then
14:31
in the second minute the head and the
14:32
heart are going to start talking and
14:33
they’re going to argue for just a minute
14:34
or two of who’s going to be in charge
14:36
and then the hearts going to overwhelm
14:37
the head because the heart is the more
14:39
powerful vibration so the heart and the
14:41
head are going to get into a
14:43
conversation the third minute the hearts
14:46
going to take over the heads going to be
14:48
confused for a minute it’s not going to
14:49
know where to go because it’s used to
14:51
being in charge but then it’s going to
14:52
figure out that I kind of like this and
14:54
then the last 40 seconds boom your heart
14:57
consciousness harmonizes with your left
15:00
and right brain in the intelligence of
15:02
every single cell in your body starts
15:05
waking up so to do this for three
15:07
minutes and 45 seconds at the end of the
15:09
day when you’re tired we need a little
15:10
inspiration so I wrote a song that just
15:14
happens to be three minutes and 40
15:15
seconds long you can download for free
15:17
on my websites called love your life
15:19
so Jason mr. music we need some volume
15:24
on it and our visual aids pull your
15:26
hands up feel it feel it ah
15:38
hurry aah aah breathing put one hand on
15:48
your heart
15:49
aah but when I on your belly aah
15:54
breathe in through the nose turn to the
16:00
person next to you share breath ahh and
16:08
feel the vibration ah Shh feel the
16:17
vibration this is the perfect conditions
16:21
in which to create the mind is quiet ah
16:30
we heard that our our bodies the dog we
16:34
took our dog for a run ah it’s quiet can
16:40
feel your heart beating that’s your
16:42
power
16:43
ah ah and you’re completely present so
16:52
these are conditions in which to ask to
16:55
partner to connect with your spirit in
16:59
spirit of those we share the spirit of
17:01
life now it’s the universe for what you
17:05
need to grow to learn to be supported
17:10
breathe in ah if you can’t think of
17:16
anything right now it’s because you are
17:20
connected you’re not feeling locked out
17:23
you’re not feeling separated so just say
17:26
to the universe surprise me just
17:30
surprise me
17:31
ah ok
17:37
thank you visual aids everybody have a
17:41
seat
17:46
thank you visualize three minutes and 40
17:49
seconds but the thing is what we’re
17:50
doing is you’re moving your body and
17:52
you’re flooding it with breath and
17:54
you’re overriding your mind so now what
17:59
I want to do next is have each person
18:01
turn to the person next to you and just
18:03
in like less than one minute tell them
18:09
who you are please don’t tell them what
18:11
you do they’ve heard it anyway every
18:15
version I’m sure but tell them who you
18:19
are I know who I am
18:21
and share that with someone for the
18:23
until I say Shh
18:42
and breathe ah can you feel the energy
18:50
in the room does it feel any different
18:55
can you feel that there is a distinct
18:59
frequency shift when we begin to move
19:03
into our heart energy and to know
19:07
thyself to know who you are that is a
19:09
huge tool so tool number one breathe
19:13
tool number two move but you want to
19:18
move yourself out of an old paradigm and
19:22
that old paradigm is your left brain I
19:24
call that the bad neighborhood
19:26
nothing good happens there when you
19:31
breathe when you move when you dance
19:33
when you sing what you’re doing is
19:35
you’re inviting your spirit to come into
19:37
your body and it is a spirit in you that
19:39
is intuitive it is a spirit in you that
19:41
connects it is a spirit in you that is
19:44
the genius it is the spirit in you that
19:46
is the healer it is a spirit in you
19:49
Einstein said it best the human spirit
19:52
is our sacred gift and the rational mind
19:55
it’s faithful servant but sadly we have
19:59
thrown away the gift and we’ve become
20:01
enslaved to the servant breathe to truly
20:08
branstad truly truly truly transform is
20:12
when you decide that you no longer need
20:14
to go and check with science to be a
20:20
genius but you don’t have to go check
20:22
with the experts to follow your heart we
20:27
love them they are our servants the
20:29
servant to the spirit we put those
20:31
aspects of our nature to work but that
20:34
true leap is when you no longer put your
20:37
intuition into parenthesis I listen ah
20:41
the weirdest thing happened you know I
20:45
love by the way the definition
20:46
the word weird it means out of this
20:49
world and that’s what we’re from out of
20:52
this world
20:54
the third tool is know thyself but the
20:57
self you want to know is your spirit not
20:59
your story not your backstory not your
21:01
great huge genius plans your essence I
21:06
am courageous I lean in I’m a lover I’m
21:11
gentle I’m a fire Walker I’m a dragon
21:15
I’m a hummingbird I’m a I’m a
21:19
firestarter I calm know yourself and
21:24
when you truly truly truly know yourself
21:27
your true self then you’re free to get
21:33
over yourself and begin to turn your
21:37
attention and knowing everyone else at a
21:40
deep level at a level of we the ego you
21:45
can always tell the ego it has
21:47
signatures the most powerful is itself
21:50
selects out me against you and you scare
21:55
me so I have to manage you over here
21:59
where’s the energy to listen to your
22:02
intuition let alone follow it if you’re
22:04
spending all your time managing your
22:06
anxiety the spirit is me and you we
22:11
share the breath there is no them there
22:13
is just us we’re not special but we are
22:18
spacial we travel beyond the edges and
22:23
when you know yourself so well that you
22:27
can fall in love fall into yourself leap
22:32
in I share this with vision intuition is
22:35
not a leap of faith out it’s a leap of
22:38
faith back in it’s coming home it’s
22:42
coming to that place where my heart is
22:44
not separate my wisdom is reliable my
22:50
vibes are what are true for me right now
22:55
that’s real power the power to be so
22:59
comfortable with who you are you
23:00
don’t need someone else or something
23:02
else to give you permission to be who
23:07
you are that takes courage to follow
23:11
that inner vibe not one of you in this
23:13
room has not shown up because without
23:15
some huge influence of intuition to move
23:19
you here you might think it’s because
23:22
there’s finally a party you’re invited
23:24
to but something deeper came through
23:27
your spirit brought you here your inner
23:30
teacher and if you can leave trusting
23:35
that inner teacher really trusting that
23:38
inner teacher then everything you’ve
23:41
learned will keep tumbling in as the
23:44
sacred servant helping you but if you go
23:48
away doubting the I am in you you’ll
23:51
forget you’ll forget what you’ve learned
23:54
it’ll be like eggs on tap one slide
23:57
right off if you trust you don’t need
24:00
the notes if you trust you don’t need to
24:05
remember because you feel it
24:08
energetically in your body so when you
24:12
reach for something to eat you’ll feel
24:14
this is good for me or not when you when
24:18
you meet someone you’ll feel are we
24:21
connecting or are they afraid and how
24:23
can I make them less afraid what can I
24:26
do to let them know I see them fishing
24:30
talked about how we want approval and we
24:34
want to be seen
24:35
boy that is the meaning of healing I
24:37
want to be seen but I don’t just want to
24:40
be seen like the attention I want to be
24:42
seen accurately and so with that
24:46
everybody who has the power to see
24:50
accurately I see you I see you and you
24:57
know the word psychic it’s like the buzz
24:58
word we don’t say I love that word
25:01
because it was
25:02
cuts right through and what it implies
25:06
is I see you but what people don’t
25:11
realize is and you’re beautiful you are
25:15
absolutely magnificent and when you have
25:19
those eyes and you look at people that’s
25:23
called clairvoyance when you listen with
25:27
your heat with your heart to another’s
25:30
essence to the heartbeat of the universe
25:32
that’s called Claire audience and when
25:36
you touch someone’s hand and the energy
25:39
is coming from your heart and you care
25:42
not care take but just recognize the
25:47
spirit of grace that they embody that is
25:51
Claire sentient and when you’re dancing
25:55
like Matt and all the energy comes in
25:57
that is called divine knowing it’s how
26:00
we’re hardwired so we don’t have to
26:03
remember notes we just have to remember
26:06
our breath we just have to remember to
26:09
breathe and when the spirit is in your
26:12
body there’s some signatures always
26:15
there’s a light in your eyes look at the
26:19
light in each other right now always the
26:22
second signature is there’s always a
26:24
little smile on your lips because the
26:28
Spirit is joyful and unafraid and the
26:32
third thing is there’s always a little
26:33
wiggle in your hips and the reason for
26:36
that is because intuition is a force
26:39
that moves you how movable are you if
26:43
you have no light tight lips in a tight
26:46
butt you’re not going to get anywhere
26:52
you
