“Don't try to comprehend with your mind. Your minds are very limited. Use your intuition.”
We live in a heavily left-brained society which means it's all about logic, rationality and scientifically based conclusions.
Growing up in a world like that it is very easy to lose connection with our intuitive voice or start questioning the callings from within as they more times than not do not have a "logical explanation".
As a highly sensitive person I've always been very aware of my intuition and its subtle messages - I'd literally feel a flush of energy rushing through my body and offering me clear guidance about which direction to take when facing a decision. Did I always listen to that voice? Of course not.
They teach us to think rationally, evaluate our options, think about advantages and disadvantages and choose the option that has more of the first and less of the second - nobody teaches us to go silent and do what FEELS right.
It is funny how we think that with our limited perspective we can make the "right" decision about anything at all while there is the eternal voice of our True Selves that sees the bigger picture and offers us guidance at any moment.
Most of us are programmed to doubt and question our "gut feeling" and challenge it by asking "why? why that way and not the other?" But intuition doesn't work like that. You will probably find out only when you look back why that decision was the right one at the given moment, but until then - you have to cultivate trust and develop faith in the existence and accuracy of higher guidance whose only job is to take care of you on this path.
Reconnecting with our intuition and reestablishing trust in it can be hard after years of suppressing, doubting, and ignoring, but it is not impossible. It requires us to go silent more often, tune into our bodies and feel the energy that rushes upwards as we ask the question we want an answer to. Acting upon it may be easy or difficult, but it would always FEEL RIGHT. That is also how we can distinguish intuitive voice from the voice of our Ego that may make us resistant to do the thing that we intuitively know is the right thing to do by reawakening some suppressed emotions that may discourage us to take the inspired action and flow with our intuition and instead make us run back and hide inside our cocoon of comfort, fear and smallness. Ego wants us to stay small, fearful and separate, intuition leads us towards expansion and oneness.
Living in tune with our intuition can be a challenge because most of the people we interact with on daily basis are simply so out of tune with their own inner voices that we may be perceived as childish, crazy or just making stupid excuses to avoid to do something. I still struggle with that and am trying to find a way to stay true to myself and at the same time don't offend or hurt people that i have to say "no" to. I still make stupid excuses because I cannot say that my gut is telling me not to go to that bar and that we should instead go to other... or whatever the situation is. People want a rational, logical explanation that "makes sense" to the brain, but not always to the heart.
However, maybe if we all gain a little courage and slowly start voicing our gut feeling to those surrounding us, maybe by doing so we can give them permission and encouragement to do the same and consequentially we can all create more tuned in and aligned society that can stop being so severely damaged by its "rational thinking".
Tune in, my friends, and allow yourselves to be internally guided.
