There’s something magical that takes place, when one finally begins allowing their intuition to lead, while their ego trails behind.
I’ve spent 34 years of my precious (much of, wasted-away) life I feel, allowing my limited ego to shape the life that society would have dictated for me.
In my case, it seems that I have always had a split equilibrium between a logical and abstract mentality—a Libran (Scales), dualistic nature and perspective about life. Always explaining things to others as though I should measure up to them in some way and competing without realizing it—for reasons that haven’t always served my highest nature or others’.
Our solar plexus region, or solar chakra is where our ego orients itself. Some people, like myself can feel each area of our major chakra areas and so it’s easy to identify when we’re residing in that area, versus allowing our Kundalini energy to continue rising upward, through our heart space and throat. From here, we’re able to open the gateway to love and compassion and can then communicate more clearly, while reaching toward higher states of understanding—through our mind’s eye.
Intuition is an innate knowing.
It arrives, prior to the mind processing emotions, thoughts or the present scene (not to exclude past, present or future). It’s a subtle voice or feeling, that sounds just like ourselves speaking, but from a place that transcends any feelings of fear or subjection. It’s a driving force that summons us to seek beyond routine and what’s readily known or familiar to us. We’re often times confused and conflicted because the ego personality has won over our decision-making process for so long. We may be asked to do something that’s entirely unorthodox and potentially scary, perhaps even dangerous.
Learning to trust in this inner voice, feeling or hunch and often times, definite knowing that defies explanation, is our pathway toward inner and outer growth—soul progression and transformation. We begin to affect others in ways that offers them a choice to stop leading a limiting lifestyle, because our actions speak to them in ways that an egocentric voice cannot.
It becomes a humbling nature to let one’s intuition lead the way. We embody more humility and less pride. As time goes on, every moment reveals to us, a lesson from which we can learn from—further opportunities to glean from our own wisdom or simply add to its vast energy stores.
Personal and extensive time spent in the woods, out in Nature, is where my intuition often speaks so clearly to me. Away from the worldly distractions and pollutants that would otherwise tamper with our ability to explore resonance with the attunement we call the natural world—where health dictates order and survival; the ability to truly thrive.
When I am quiet and begin to listen, answers I’ve sought will arrive. New questions are posed and a newfound appreciation for this life, my life, dawns upon me. Mysteries become evident truths and what we thought was true before now becomes trivial. Intuition is that aspect of ourselves that transcends the physical body. It’s something that we never part ways with. It is the essence of what we are, beyond the grave and our ego death experience, which is what this life is—the illusion that we are separate from all other things. Our intuition reminds us that no matter how different it may all seem, that in this vast matrix of what we might consider a subjective reality, we are all one—a part of one sentient consciousness that permeates all of time and space/space and time.
Intuition is past, present and future—collapsed into one eternally dense moment of now.
Go where it’s quiet and listen to yourself whisper to you how much you are loved, unconditionally. Let your skin crawl and the goosebumps rise, when Creator whispers to you, via the wind which tickles your delicate skin. Feel the magic in the air, realizing that each breath taken is the same breath that all life has or ever will take. Walk with your intuition for awhile each day and let it share with you what’s so glorious about living in these physical forms while we learn what lies beyond all of this.
Once we realize we are leading fated lives, we just might start allowing a higher waveform of sentience to direct us in wondrous, terrifying and exploratory ways—beyond what the mechanizations of society could ever dream of doing or entertaining us with. There’s a world beyond what’s known and there is a voice that will translate to us, what this majesty called life is truly all about.
