AT A TIME WHEN WE MOST NEED IT HAVE WE LOST THE ABILITY TO UNTUIT ?
Continuing with the words of Yogananda –
“Nearly everyone has had the experience of an inexplicably correct ‘hunch,’ or has transferred his thoughts effectively to another person. The human mind, free from the static of restlessness, can perform through its antenna of intuition all the functions of complicated radio mechanisms sending and receiving thoughts, and tuning out desirable ones.”
Living predominantly on the intellectual plane, as I do, I can find it difficult to distinguish between what I’m thinking and what I’m feeling. I never quite understood what a gut feeling was because I processed everything mentally. And so it wasn’t until I was knocked down or trusted someone I shouldn’t have that I realised my auto method of response needed addressing – big time. Well, that was then, but even now I can still get caught off guard. When my mind is filled to capacity as has been of late, I find that I revert back to my auto response of mental process, unknowingly.
As you know, I’ve been in between homes for almost three months now. And so the overload of sleeping at one place, cooking in another, managing tradesman in my new place while continuing to see clients, has meant that I’ve had to consciously pull back in order to allow my intuitive guidance to surface. But even when we don’t have so much on our agenda, the everyday use of electronics and social media can suppress any intuitive guidance that’s available to us.
We need to ask ourselves who is master here, ourselves or our expectations to do more, ourselves or our electronic devices? Because what’s at stake is very important to our health, peace, joy and wellbeing.
We can begin by asking ourselves if an information overload which can send our mental and emotional capacity to burn out point is a worthy exchange for sidelining the wisdom that comes from the intuitive guidance we are neglecting.
We don’t need more information, we need to quiet and still our minds so our intuitive wisdom can guide us as to how best to use this information, both in our personal lives and for our world.
