Hello, hope you’re having a restful Sunday.
So it’s right down to what I want to write about today: intuition. It’s a concept, a part of life that lately I’ve been bumping into more often. Like a little kid impatiently tugging on my arm, asking for attention, and I’m not exactly sure what the kid wants.
“What is intuition?” Is a reasonable starting point in my opinion. To me, it’s a feeling that one gets about something when there is no logical explanation for that thing. No form of reason is used to come to any conclusion. And true intuition, I believe, is never wrong. Which leads me to believe that there is a reason for why intuition exists. Even more intriguing is why we can tap into such a peculiar tool. If you know me, you know that I’m looking for a reason why.
I believe in spiritual connections, bonds that we create with others. We are but a tiny piece of the bigger picture, but at the same time, we are the bigger picture. The world is a reflection of who we are. In that relationship we have with the universe is born intuition.
When one is connected to the world they live in, they are in a place of balance, a place of clarity, a place of quality existing. There is a bond made with the world in which feeling is the primary sense, above all. One may feel when something is off, not right, or when something is going well, should be trusted.
The sad thing about this, though, is that the world is moving away from trusting intuition, possibly one of our greatest tools. We are losing our connection with life, creating a more isolated, broken up society. We live behind our computers, trapped in our houses, stuck in the office, alone in our own skin. I wrote about the importance of being independent moving forward in life. We cannot hide behind others.
I also know, though, that we are a social race and immersing ourselves within the happenings of our world is absolutely crucial. We need to connect, to interact, to feel. With nature, or with others. It’s a part of who we are.
All that we need to do is rediscover our connectedness with the world. Go on walks to the
park, see people face-to-face more often. Whatever it is that works for you. Because it’s these little baby steps that turn around our lives in such a profound way. Intuition is a tool the universe gifted us to move forward and learn about the importance of slowing down and taking time to do things thoughtfully. Life isn’t a race.
We can use our gut feeling to become better people. Stop falling into the same traps over and over. Learning to trust ourselves in what we do. Learning to trust others in what they do. Trusting in general.
