Intuition series: Logic or why doesn’t it work?

I’ve spoken about intuition on and off, but have yet to really explain what it means.

I used to think that intuition was about manifesting and using mind powers.  That was back in the 80 and 90s, when there just wasn’t any information around at the time.

My intuition was working fine, but I would just ignore it because I didn’t like what it was telling me.

More importantly, when I was going to try something that didn’t feel right, I thought that it was just nerves, or me being negative, so I thought that if I soldiered on, thing would work out.

They never did.

It wasn’t till around 1994 that I finally started to understand. I’m not sure what caused the shift, but one day, I just somehow understood what I needed to do.

As I mentioned in previous entries, I had finally got to the point where I was so over failing in getting the things I believed I wanted. I was worn down, and had to admit that I just couldn’t brute force my way thought things.

Once I started to trust it, it became one of my greatest tools.

The skeptics out there claim that there is no such thing as intuition. They will put it down to us having the ability to read subtle signs and signals that we’re not even aware of.

Now, there is truth to this, make no mistake, but to dismiss it as all there is to it would be an error.

While we might be very good at reading signs (especially as an Empath), it does not explain how you can know about things where there are no signs to be read.

It doesn’t explain how you could know things that were never spoken of, of things that are happening elsewhere, when  you’ve got no prior knowledge of it.

It doesn’t explain why something might feel right today, and then tomorrow it feels bad, even though you’ve received no new information.

If it was a matter of being logical, then most of the decisions I’ve made would not have been made and the ones based on logic would have ensured my life would have thrived.

Logic has gotten me nowhere. Even reading the signs has failed me when it doesn’t match with what I was  feeling.   In fact, often,  what I might be feeling may be totally contrary to what I’m observing.

The fact is, intuition is real, it is powerful and can really steer you through the minefields of life.

The fact that people fear to trust their own feelings shows that logic has very little to do with  it, because people tend to take the logical route, or the path that they feel will lead them to the most benefit, even if they don’t feel good about the choice.

In these things, fear is often at the root of our motivation.

Intuition is like your personal inbuilt GPS with full traffic information and where the speed and red light cameras are… well, I’m sure you get the idea.

It will navigate all the obstacles that you can’t possibly be aware of. All you need do is listen.

Next: How do you use your intuition?

    Posted by on March 13, 2010 at 3:32 am Hi Donna!I have to say this category of yours srriupsed me! I have always been fascinated by the psychic realm and have been to see a number of them. I have never had a mind blowing experience as yet and have always had a little doubt in my mind as to the validity. I believe there is definitely some very good ones out there just a matter of tracking them down and using the information wisely I suppose too I am reading a book right now by Herbert B. Puryear, Ph. D called The Edgar Cayce Primer Discovering the Path to Self-Transformation. Seems very good so far. Look forward to connecting with you and learning more about you!BlessingsYamuna Keller

    And when you make a wrong turn, the GPS says… “Recalculating…” 🙂

    I urge you to read Travels by Michael Chrichton. There is a chapter called London Psychics where he visits a parlor of so called psychics trying to answer that same burning question he had. Are psychics real? He is in awe at what some of them can know about him, things “he has not spoken of” as you say, still they can describe them in detail. This capacity is true to some extent in all of us. I don’t know how we can enhance it, but it is there. We just don’t acknowledge the posibility, so it is kept unnoticed, unused, disregarded, etc. we rely more on facts that in anyway are intepretations of facts most of the time.

      Thanks. Not sure I’ll be able to get my hands on it, but agreed with the thought about it.
