How to access your intuition
As someone who has often been led by her emotions, I can tell you that this is not the best way to navigate life. Emotions are important but ultimately unreliable when it comes to making decisions. Many people have made a decision because they felt like they were going with their gut, but it still led them down an unhappy path.
It is important to note the difference between illusion and gut instinct.
Intuition, or gut instinct, is from your divine self.
Intuition is void of emotions and can seem illogical because it comes from your soul, which is more than thought and emotion.
Tapping into your intuitive brain takes practice.
For those of you that do intuitive readings for others, you’ll notice that the moment you get too emotionally attached to the person you’re reading, you lose clarity. That is because emotions, although they can be beautiful, are hugely distracting.
If life is art, then emotions are the paint and your truth is the canvas.
Emotions add texture, colour, and flavour to the blank canvas. When there is enough colour on the canvas, it becomes unrecognizable and very difficult to read.
The trick then is to be able to see past the colours to your truth underneath.
Your truth is who you are. It cannot be manipulated, changed, or hidden. It may be difficult to see but it can never really be hidden.
So when we’re making decisions, it is useless to be guided by emotion because emotions are not the true North.
Our true North is the blank canvas; it is the truth of who we are.
For example, let’s say you want to move to Australia. Immediately the thought of picking up and selling all of your belongings will likely trigger an emotional response. Leaving your family behind may also trigger emotions. The expenses involved in making this move may also trigger more emotions. So a simple though of moving to Australia is quickly complicated with complex emotions mere seconds after thinking it.
Again, I’m not putting down emotions; life would be bland and uninteresting without them, but they do interfere with the process of tapping into our intuition.
The purpose of our intuition is NOT to guide us to a pain-free life. There will always be postivies and negatives to any situation in life. We create emotions when we cannot see both sides.
The purpose of our intuition is to guide us to what our soul wants to experience.
So then, if we want to see if moving to Australia is what our soul wants us to experience, we must first acknowledge that this decision will have its upsides and its downsides (just like everything else in life). In fact, it will have an equal number of positives and negatives to it, meaning it has no charge; it is neutral.
So then, if everything is neutral, why move forward in any particular direction?
Because your soul wishes to accomplish certain things while it is on Earth.
You will feel a “pull” towards a direction when your soul wants you to go there.
This “pull” is beyond reason, beyond emotion, beyond anything tangible, but it causes us to feel compelled to move in a particular direction. This pull is our intution speaking to us.
The ONLY way to access this “pull” is to access a state of emotional neutrality within us. We can achieve this state with practice.
Meditation is an excellent way to move past emotions and look at a scenario objectively. It is only in this concentrated state of awareness that we can actually tap into our intuition and move forward on our highest path.
The more we practice this state of awareness, the easier we can tap into it at any given time.
We can use this perspective to make decisions and move easily into the flow of things, rather than leading our lives based on thought and emotion. In the early stages of this practice, the “pull” from our soul can feel weak. But as we progress and tap into this feeling more often, the pull gets stronger until it becomes exceptionally difficult to ignore.
Although this advanced stage may sound incredible, it too offers its drawbacks. When you’re living life based on what your soul wants, you cannot dwell for long in distracting activities. You can’t ignore what our soul wants for years on end. You can’t live a comfortable life because your soul pushes you to grow and the only way to grow is to overcome challenges.
So if you do want to tap into your intuition and lead the life your soul wants for you, start by daily meditation. Practice disengaging from the drama and emotional ups and downs of the everyday so that you can find your inner calm. Use meditation as a means of tapping into the space within you that is neutral and looking at the world as your playground.
