“Intuition is a spiritual facility and does not explain, but simply points the way.” -Florence Scovel Shinn
I never really understood the importance of this thing called intuition until I was much older in life and found myself on a more spiritual path. By spiritual, I mean doing my inner work: healing my past, figuring out what I wanted out of life, what my values are, and who I am and how I want to show up in this world. Part of that journey was getting in touch with this lost aspect of myself, that I didn’t really know I had, and learning how to use it on a more consistent basis.
So what is intuition anyway? It is something we are all born with. We seem to lose sight of it along the way, however, as our mind begins to take over and lead us on another path driven by our ego. Our intuition is that deep inner knowing about what is right or wrong for us. It is that guiding force that comes from a part of us that we can’t touch or feel. Some like to call this our gut feelings.
No matter how you refer to it, we have all had the experience of this deep inner knowing that we can’t explain. Call it a sixth sense, some force beyond what our eyes can see or our minds can grasp that just knows what to do for our highest good.
The problem is, we have become so conditioned by our mind and logic that we often ignore that inner knowing no matter how strong the feeling. We haven’t learned to trust it, because we haven’t learned to use it.
If we want to live a life of health and happiness I feel it is vital that we learn to tap into this valuable resource and use it to guide us in our daily lives. It can be scary to trust your intuition, but once you start and learn to trust you will find it becoming your first point of inquiry about anything…right down to the food choices you make.
You intuition speaks to you through your body, with sensations and energy. Start with small things at first until you build that confidence, and over time it will become a natural source of guidance.
