ever had a "gut" feeling and not listened? Most likely
it cost you "big time." Ours is a culture that has not
yet given full credence to the inherent wisdom of our spiritual
nature. The fact is we have a source of intelligence within us that
most of us seldom use; it’s known as our intuition. Intuition is
a sixth sense that seems directly connected to the creative intelligence
of the Universe.
The information comes to us generally in a feeling
rather than a logical, "figure it out" type thinking process.
Some people call it our instinct. Others call it a "gut"
feeling. Either way, if you’re not utilizing this incredibly powerful
inner guidance system, that is at your service 24 hours a day, you
are operating in life with "one hand tied behind your back."
The key to "tapping in" is to get your
"chatter box" mind to quiet down. You can do this by meditating
or simply focusing on the present moment. Once the mind is quiet,
wisdom can come through. The idea is to "let go" of your
normal thinking process, in fact to "stop thinking". It
may sound strange, but you’ve probably experienced this difficult
to explain phenomena during a time when you were trying to remember
something but couldn’t. Finally, you stopped trying to "figure
it out" and later, out of the blue, the answer popped into
knows what’s right for you. It knows what directions you need to
take for your highest good and the good of others. Although your
analytical mind is a magnificent tool, when it comes to the key
decisions of your life, it pales in comparison to the inner wisdom
of your "intuition".
Intuition is something we all have in equal amounts.
However, it’s the old story of "use it or lose it."
Today, begin to practice quieting your mind, asking your "spirit
self" for direction, and allowing your intuition to come
through as a feeling or a thought that simply "pops"
into your head. Most important, you must have enough trust and
courage to follow this guidance especially when it defies logic,
which is usually the case.
I trust myself. I trust
I am open to listening to my higher guidance.
For your freedom,
