Living In Intuition
In the last article, “Coming Home to Ourselves,” (1) the subject of following our intuition came to the fore. There, we talked about becoming led from within, no longer from without. But what exactly does this mean and how do we do it? Let’s dive in a little deeper here.
We each have our own internal guidance system that is unique to us. Our soul blueprint or soul coding is etched into our hearts, and this is the origins of our intuition. No one else has the same set of spiritual instructions that we do. So if we want to operate the way God intended for us, we’d be wise to follow our very own User Manual.
So how do we follow our intuition? And how do we tell the difference between our intuition and our ego mind and its desires? There are many theories, equations, and techniques to access this seemingly mysterious force, but it’s actually quite simple. By following our hearts we begin to merge with our intuition—they are one in the same. The more we practice, the more discerning we become where we can see and feel the difference between ego pacification and true guidance.
Intuition comes as a feeling or an inner nudging. What feels warm, light, peaceful, good, true, loving, and relatively simple is what aligns with our hearts or intuition. What feels cold, dark, scary, unloving, and complicated is what doesn’t align with our hearts or intuition.
Tuning into these feelings more and more, we see that they are ultimately communicating a simple Yes, No, or Neutral, rather than a painstaking, heavily calculating, or confusing unknown. Our intuition can guide us through trivial topics, mundane matters, and even issues of critical concern.
What many of us find as we cultivate the practice of following our intuition is that the metaphorical writing was on the wall the entire time. Oh, the struggles we could have avoided if only we would have listened to ourselves more.
Here too, we must have love for ourselves and accept decision that has come before us with equanimity and also gentleness. How did those valuable experiences bring us closer to this powerful Now moment where we can fully claim our connection to ourselves?
Additionally, many of us may have been shunned or judged for following our hearts—and usually by people who themselves have been wounded and discouraged from following their own. Perhaps it may have felt indulgent, silly, or illogical to listen to ourselves while the rest of the world was stuck in their heads. Because of this, emotions of guilt, shame, or fear may have kept us from siding with ourselves. No more!
Every moment is a choice point that has the potential to bring us closer or further away from ourselves and our spiritual light and truths. With time, we can look back at our lives and see that the most successful moments and outcomes were the ones where we stayed true to intuition and to the wisdom of hearts.
As we acknowledge this, we begin to trust ourselves more. And with self-trust comes greater clarity and greater precision in calling the shots of our own lives.
Not only does following our intuition make navigating life easier and smoother, but it makes it more fun and interesting! While others around us may only see a few well-worn, overplayed, boring, or maybe even scary or costly options, we begin to sense a multitude of possibilities, ideas, hunches, and whims that were previously blocked from our mental awareness. Behold the power of our own soul blueprints!
What do our hearts want? What do we truly want for our lives deep down underneath the din of consensus? What is the best path to take as we traverse life’s new chapters? The true renegades, mystics, and innovators followed themselves unreservedly, and so should we! Inside all of us is something unique that we wouldn’t know unless we decided to stay true to ourselves by listening to our intuition and following our hearts.
In learning how to honor and then follow our intuition, we are sidestepping the dogmas of the world and moving closer to our spiritual hearts. This is the God World where we begin to reclaim our spiritual selves as the truth of life. As we honor our intuition, as we follow our hearts, our minds then become servants to our souls. Our minds heal, the light is restored from within us, and we become radiantly alive.
