Intuition is the meeting place between the Divine and the spirit. It is the silent cauldron of the unmanifest slowly morphing and merging into the material plane that gives rise to opportunity for us to embrace if we so choose to follow it.
From my own personal experience, my intuition has always been on point. On the one occasion that I did not listen to the voice resounding in my head foreboding what was to come, I soon got an extremely valuable lesson in why paying attention to it is critical.
I narrowly escaped a life-threatening situation. From then on, regardless of how obscure or potentially absurd my intuition may “seem” to appear, I have paid attention and followed its guidance. To my continual amazement it has always been utterly spot on.
“Intuition is the whisper of the soul” – Jiddu Krishnamurti
“The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will and the solution comes to you and you don’t know how or why… The only real valuable thing is intuition.” – Albert Einstein
“A woman knows by intuition or instinct, what is best for herself.” – Marilyn Monroe
“Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs
Intuition is the ability to understand and inherently know something immediately without the need for conscious reasoning, belief or explanation. It is what’s obvious and transcends the mind and thinking.
It is the stream of flow that comes to us from the super conscious that allows us to know, without knowing and tap into the field of Pure Creative Intelligence, the Pure Awareness.
“Intuition can be said to be what the mind apprehends before rationalizing.” – William Whitecloud
When it comes to logic it’s important not to overrule intuition.
“I rely far more on gut instinct than researching huge amounts of statistics.” – Richard Branson.
“I’ve trusted the still, small voice of intuition my entire life. And the only time I’ve made mistakes is when I didn’t listen.” – Oprah Winfrey
Some of the most eminent entrepreneurs of our time use their intuition for making their decisions such as Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, Oprah Winfrey, Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg. When you look at their level of success, the impact of intuition is something that can’t be denied.
How do you cultivate your intuition?
Be in a state of innocence or “purity” like a small child, without expectations or judgments and become aware of what impressions, messages, inner voice or feelings that come to you. These might be subtle and barely noticeable or loud and blaring.
As you become aware of these things, notice what’s obvious, what stands out to you like a neon sign flashing in bold letters, “Yes” or “Not This One!”
The more you pay attention to your intuition and then follow how it’s guiding you, the more you’ll be aware of how it is affording you opportunities to be discerning to get the best outcome in any situation.
Don’t ignore what it’s telling you and always follow your first intuition or instinct, even if you believe it can’t be right. Forget about what you believe and bypass your beliefs! You’ll find that your first intuitive insight is inevitably accurate. By going with your beliefs rather than your intuition, it will lead you on a path of making costly mistakes.
Next time you have a decision to make and you’re not sure what direction to take, use your intuition. You’ll be glad you did!
