Good morning, lovely you!
It is hard for me not to feel out of sorts these days. Are you feeling that way? The world seems like it is getting crazier and crazier. Pandemics, riots, looting, fires… the world seems a bit lost right now.
No matter what is going on in this outside world, it is not the ULTIMATE reality. This physical dimension is not the be-all-end-all reality. There is a place of love, joy and complete serenity and peace that not only exists – but is the one real true existence.
During times like these, it is important to always remain connected to this stiller, quieter place. There is a phrase in Christianity, Buddhism and other religious and spiritual teachings that says, “Be in the world but not of the world.” I believe this refers to people who have chosen a monastic lifestyle, such as a nun or monk. These people have become one through prayer, spiritual practice, meditation or mystical contemplation. A monastic is ideally someone who takes the inner nun or monk seriously, and this inner world is simply the mystic in all of us. Eventually the outer and inner become one through prayer, spiritual practice, meditation, or mystical contemplation. All these practices are related to inner attention to the sacred.
You and I are living in this conflicted world right now. Here we are. We’re good people trying to be kind, productive human beings and raise our families and help our communities. And yet all around us is fear, panic, anger, and violence. But we don’t have to be into any of that.
We can connect with the higher realms, our higher being, our God to find the calm and peace we seek during these troubling times. And this is where our intuition can come in.
What is Intuition?
Living in such a fear-based culture makes it hard to keep a sense of control. Who should we listen to about what is going on? Our government leaders? The media? Mmmm, something tells me those agents don’t have our best interests in mind and certainly aren’t always (or ever) truthful.
It is through our intuition, our inner being that we can find real and honest answers. This powerful knowing is not only trustworthy but completely attuned to our individual journeys. Ask your intuition anything and you’ll get a clear and honest message. Our intuition puts Alexa to shame!
Our intuition knows us, knows our deepest secrets and fears, knows what we want and need and how we get there. It is like our best friend or mentor who is always there and ready to guide us.
And yet, most of us don’t have any real relationship with our intuition. But maybe you’ve had some experiences in your life where you couldn’t explain how you knew to do something, but you had a strong “sense” about something and that sense was totally correct.
This is your intuition. It is that quiet inner voice – your inner genius that absolute knowing.
What is it really? It’s anyone’s guess. Is it your subconscious mind? Is it an angel? Is it God him/her/itself speaking to you? We won’t know exactly while we are still in this human form.
But you don’t have to know how a car works to drive to the store. You don’t have to know how your TV works to watch your favorite show. And you don’t have to know exactly what your intuition is or how it works to benefit from a relationship with it.
