Recognizing and Engaging Intuition (Spiritual Energy)
Making time and space to move into the silence of the inner world (yes, it’s there behind the noise in our heads!) and learning to “hang out” there helps to develop a relationship with Universal/Higher Self/Source energy. Practice makes this stronger and you will be gifted with expanded intuition, inspiration and insight.
Being in truly in touch (as opposed to ego fabrication of experience) with our spiritual nature provides uncommon support, guidance and direction for movement on our life path; we are co-creators with our soul. If we wander too far from our spiritual connection, we will try to create solely from the will and ego, and that is laced with struggle and does not serve us very well.
Our spirit Self feels like inspiration or intuition. It is often the initial felt sense of rightness (or wrongness) about a person, place or decision.
We can start to invite our spiritual Self to flex its muscles and grow by noticing how things feel to us.
Choices That Enliven You
“Stress is the result of a poor use of imagination”, Deepak Chopra
When we are faced with a difficult situation or a choice that needs to be made we can have a fight/flight reaction due to our fear. This is not a good place to respond from! If we can recognize this we can take charge of our body-mind and move into a space that is much wiser and let it guide us.
When faced with a choice point you may need to deal with the stress reaction and dump that energy before you move onto the next phase of inviting your higher mind to engage.
Once you feel you are no longer in the grip of stress or fear you can take time to relax and become deeply quiet. Once you have you can try out a variety of solutions in your mind and see how it makes you feel. Disengage your thinking mind: don’t analyze or evaluate, let go of your lists of pros and cons that belong in another part of your decision-making process.
For now simply get a feeling for how a certain thing feels to that intangible part of you. There are thousands of possibilities in our lives. What truly feels right to you? Notice how your body responds to imagined outcomes. What feels right? What feels good? Try feeling various possibilities. Note the ones that open you and bring you joy. There is valuable information there.
