We all have had experiences where for some reason or another we get a hunch, gut feeling, or some type of insight that comes to us in the moment. That insight might tell us to leave a certain place, it may tell us to turn right instead of turning left. We may get the hunch that someone isn’t telling the truth or we get the sense that something just isn’t right. There’s also that feeling one gets when first hearing about something or someone, or the first impression when we meet someone new. These are all simply what is referred to as our Intuition.
Intuition is our sixth sense. It is the ability to synthesize and deduce insight from all of our accumulated experiences. Meaning we “know” much more than we realize. It is through the perception of our other five senses that we are able to tune in to our intuition. Those who pay attention, will find that our intuition is always available. In fact, the information shared with us through intuition is more accurate then information picked up with the other five senses. The nature of our physical reality is that often what we see, taste, smell, hear and touch is based primarily on perception. Intuition however is based on energy, it is connected to the Unified Field, which is a field or web consciousness. Therefore intuition works with vibration and frequency. It is Resonance, a recognition of truth based on how it feels. Every cell in the body is vibrating with recognition. It is when the left brain and the right brain are both working and body consciousness is turned on. It is holistic inner-connected way of knowing.
So where does intuition come from?
Intuition comes to us directly from our soul, also known as the higher self. When we chose to incarnate into a physical body, a very small portion of our divine essence (soul) is present within this physical form. The higher self is an omniscient source of intelligence. It has not forgotten the truth of who we each are, through all of our lifetimes. Therefore is serves to guide us through each step of our journey. The higher self will use every means possible to communicate the best path for us to take in order to complete our soul’s purpose. Aside from dreams, signs and omens, one of the primary ways the higher self will communicate with us is through our intuition. It is this direct knowing that comes in the present moment when mind, body, and spirit our in alignment. The higher self is you except it exists on the spiritual plane. Meaning it has not been distracted by all of the illusions that exist in the physical dualistic reality of the third dimensional plane that we(the incarnate self) exist on. The higher self continues to offer information and insight to guide us towards fulfilling our destiny and directing us away from the ego trappings of fear and self-delusion.
Why can’t we hear always hear our intuition?
Many of us may have gone through our lives feeling very alone and perhaps powerless. This is because the paradigm we have been living in was based on fear and separation. We are leaving this Age of Disinformation and entering into the Age of Intuition. This process requires letting go of that which does not serve our evolution. Literally we are being asked to lighten up. This allows us to raise our vibration. More and more we are being bombarded with media propaganda, technology, environmental toxins, and free radicals. All of this creates fragmentation of the mind, body, spirit harmony. We are also slowly waking up from the collective amnesia that comes through cultural and ancestral programming. Often this attachment to who we are, that is based on self-identity can block the free flow of soul. We may have been programmed to believe that life just happens to us. That we do not have choice or agency. Many of us have felt oppressed or victimized. All of these beliefs, charged with emotion keep us stuck in old patterns. If not healed they create energy blocks.
The beauty of this time is that we are going through an acceleration of human consciousness. This means that many of us are experiencing what feels like time speeding up. This is because the present moment is taking over. No longer will we have to identify with our “past”. We will learn that all choice to be who we are, is available in the present moment and will be communicated to us from the higher realms, through our intuition. We will return to choice. We will begin to listen to the gentle nudges that we receive before they turn into full blown life shattering events (which is what happens when we ignore our higher self). We will feel lucky and know that life can be experienced with a great sense of joy, peace and ease. We will receive accurate information in the present moment. And we will receive exactly what we need to know. We will trust and act on this information because we will know that it is directing us towards our highest good. Healing will happen faster. A true sense of empowerment comes from listening to our intuition. We will be able to ask for what we need and know that the universe will provide for us in abundance. We will still experience contrast. Contrast is what creates expansion in the universe. But contrast wont feel like a contraction. It will feel like an opportunity to express more of our truth and what we have mastered. This all truly comes from developing and tuning into intuition as our primary teacher.
I will guide you through these next few weeks with tips and techniques for awakening your intuition and connecting to the Higher Self.
The homework for this week:
Learning how to be in alignment with your higher self is key for receiving intuition. This week we will begin to practice learning how to access what I call your Home Frequency. This is the feeling that one gets when you are being your most authentic self. It comes to you from doing what you love, also known as following your bliss. Because intuition is not something that can be experienced through the five senses, if you are someone who has not been in the practice of feeling and sensing energy this is the perfect place to start.
First you will set the intention that you are going to connect to your infinite, divine, Higher Self. You can state this intention out loud or silently. Make sure to use language that works for your belief system. If you are not comfortable with the term higher self please substitute with inner voice, inner teacher or something that resonates. You are simply going to for five minutes a day (preferably morning) meditate of what your home frequency feels like. Bring all of the positive emotions available with you into this practice. You may reflect on a person that feels like home, a smell, something you love to eat. Anything that gives you those feelings of pure joy and divine presence. Notice all of the sensations that come up. This practice of turning inward not only will strengthen your intuition, but with time, will allow you to access deeper levels of mind, creativity, love and healing. All of these are gifts from the higher self.
