Intuition is a way of receiving information without using your thinking mind.
There are multiple ways we know what we know, yet for far too long we have relied on thinking. However, thinking only sees situations in parts.
?Intuition knows the whole.?
When we receive intuitive information, we naturally want to use ‘the mind’ to understand logically what it means.
There is nothing wrong with logical thinking, but our need for logic and reason comes from fear.
This is likely to lead you to corrupting the intuitive information with doubt. Once there is doubt, it becomes difficult to trust our intuition.
?So, what is intuition??
– Our connection to all there is
– A bridge to being at one with anything you choose to listen to intuitively
– Freedom from the thoughts in our head, fear, and therefore, freedom from control
– A bridge to the real you, when you are your carefree and happy self
?WHAT INTUITION IS NOT:?
Believe it or not, your feelings are not intuition. They are the gateway to knowing you are receiving intuitive information, as your emotions are reacting to the intuition, but emotions are not the intuition itself.
When we say things like ‘I have a feeling’ or ‘I have a BAD feeling’, the feeling is the REACTION, not the cause.
Intuition is also not one of the ‘Clairs’ (French prefix meaning clear)
– Clairaudience (clear audio/hearing): To perceive sounds or words from sources other than the normal spoken or broadcast.
– Clairempathy (clear emotion): To sense or “feel” within one’s self the attitude or emotions of another person.
– Clairgustance (clear tasting): To taste a substance without putting anything in the mouth.
– Clairscent (clear smelling): To smell a fragrance or odor not coming from anything.
– Clairsentience (clear sensation or feeling): To perceive information by a “feeling within the body” without any outer stimulation.
– Clairtangency (clear touching): More commonly known as psychometry. To handle an object or touch an area and perceive through the palms of one’s hands information about the article or its owner or history that was not previously known by the clairtangent.
– Clairvoyant (clear vision): To see in the mind’s eye or imagination. Often linked with future predictions.
Like ‘feelings’, these abilities are gateways to processing the intuition you are receiving.
They might sound like paranormal abilities also known as the 6th sense, yet they are an overlooked ability you likely already have.
You might have found yourself saying, ‘That person has left me with a bitter taste in my mouth’ or when the phone rings, saying ‘I was just thinking about you’ or ‘I have a bad feeling about this place’ or ‘what’s that smell?’, only to find you’re the only one who can smell anything.
?A LOVING VIBRATION?
Intuition works from a loving vibration and is always trying to keep you in touch with love and your true potential.
Imagine that everything is made of chords of energy, like a harp. The truth of a situation can be felt as if it were a sound.
You know when everything is in harmony as it sounds and feels right. You can hear a clear sound with no discord.
However, if the tuning changes, you can hear and sense the difference as everything becomes a little off key. You are still attuned to the chords, but something is off.
Now imagine that you are that harp; your emotions are the strings; you feel the vibration of the world through the resonance it plays. If your strings are not tuned correctly, then you might think the world is out of tune, when it’s actually your emotions.
This is the single biggest problem with intuitive knowing.
If your emotional strings are being pulled and triggered it becomes hard to know if you are having an intuitive reaction to something or if it is past experience having an emotional repeat, or if it’s your ego trying to limit your growth.
?INTUITION OR IMAGINATION??
A question that comes up all the time is, “how can I tell the difference between my imagination and my intuition?”
The answer to this question is really quite complex, as it isn’t just imagination that gets in the way of your intuitive knowing – so let’s break it down.
Firstly, it’s important to mention that the imagination is a vital aspect of intuition.
Imagination is formed in the right hemisphere of the brain, which is also the centre of your intuition.
Your imagination is also your tool for manifestation, so if you find yourself getting strong images, ideas, feelings or thoughts you need to pay them the same amount of attention; whether imagination or intuition they’re both important.
Predominantly all intuitive information feels positive. You might be driving a car and have a positive feeling about turning left; rather than a bad feeling about going straight on.
It’s rare that you would have a bad feeling about the road ahead. If you ever examine an intuitive knowing after the event, you might say “I knew I shouldn’t have done that”. But it doesn’t mean the feeling was negative.
We are programmed to listen for the negative, so we never say “I have a great feeling about this”.
The human ego is trying to protect the physical body, so it’s always looking for the negative.
Ego makes its decisions from fear; it needs everything to be kept limited.
So, if you have a fear about something, it’s not likely to be your intuition talking.
Hopefully, you can now see that imagination isn’t the biggest problem for trusting your intuition.
You need first to simply trust yourself as the instrument that all the tunes of life are played upon.
If you can trust yourself as an intuitive tool, you know all of your information is correct.
It would be expecting a lot to ask you to be emotionally in tune and balanced at all times.
In fact if you can do that then please write a book about it as it would be a guaranteed best seller!
It’s ok to have a harmonising wobble in life; the trick is to know what you’re listening for intuitively over the loud noise of everyday existence.
You’re listening for the loving pitch; it feels a little like excitement or joy. It feels a little silly and a little naughty, it feels like being a child.
That simply is what intuition feels like. It never feels heavy or bad.
You know how to trust your intuition when you can hear that light sound no matter what other discord is going on around it.
That might sound difficult, but I bet that now you have the explanation for what intuition feels like in words, you will feel it often.
