The intuitive mind, the one backing you up when you dare to be yourself. The one that suddenly shows up like having the feeling of going out for a walk and meet someone key for a present project…experienced! Certainly, those “eureka” moments are not a bizarre thing after noticing the first one, after some conscious acknowledgment that something bigger than yourself is working out and from within. At the time of my first experience I wasn’t much into meditation, but now I know that it helps, as well as contemplation. We don’t need to understand or analyze what’s going on, we just must acknowledge that whatever you thought or did, worked out perfectly and better than whatever you could have done or imagined. There is a higher intelligence, intuition, or wisdom available to everyone. In “Touch of Wisdom” I share a moment in which out of love and a strong desire for understanding and stop the bullying, from one second to the next the environment changed for good in the classroom. The principle was practiced joyfully in other situations.
Thinkers or writers can’t deny this fact: Coincidences? universe orchestration working for you? For some, it may sound silly, but listen, it is the best you can do for yourself. Trust your gut, trust your intuition no matter what people say, think or do. It is well known that there have been many people who in the middle of a calamity have been able to lift a car to save a child, swim for minutes to free a baby, or do something supernatural, impossible under “normal” circumstances, in which we don’t find the courage, strength or wisdom to face the facts. We may be limiting our mind with fear, shame or lack of confidence. Dare and do something, faith without action is not faith.
How much of ourselves is restrained because of culture? What about feelings? We have been taught to follow rules, repeat and memorize letting the self little, or no space to express freely. It has been said that to become fully functioning a person requires developing the ability to trust his instincts and cultivate intuitive, spontaneous modes of self-expression. Jung characterized optimal mental health as including the ability to maintain an “openness to messages from a deeper level of the unconscious”.
It seems that the influence of the media is working towards human individuality and self-expression, but how certain is it that we can be free from patterns, prototypes or traditions? Are we sure that we are not following or wanting to be like someone else and that not being nor having it is causing distress? Are we able to observe without judgment so the outer world cannot affect our peace? It is the challenge! Young free spirit, wake up… it will be what it is…whatever you allow in your mind…
