Is intuition the voice of our soul and not the voice of our mind? Is it that inner feeling you get before you start judging right or wrong?
Is it the instrument given to you in order to maneuver yourself according to your plan - to your manuscript. That which was decided before you were born - before you came here - as a plausible scenario or actions throughout your life?
I do believe that our intuitive feeling is THE key factor to understand who we are and why we are living on this Earth. If we do reincarnate with free will and we all do have a life purpose how would Creation make sure we would not get completly lost from the task at hand? The answer is our intuitive feeling. It knows the whole plan. You are the actor/actress choosing a part in the play. You choose the character, the props, the scene, the timeperiod and so on, but you do not know the whole play. You don't know the script, don't know your lines and how you are suppose to act. This is because of free will. We need to forget when we start out our play in order to let the element of the unknown be part of it all. Only then can universal consciousness truly experience itself through all of us. The backup plan to where we come from and what we are doing here is hidden within our intuitive feeling. When we get in touch with our heart and realize that love is the glue that holds everything together we understand why we came here and that will also lead to a leap in the evolution for the soul and in many cases end the game because the soul gets closure (clear out karma because going into the heart raises the vibrations and clears it out) and it can then move on beyond this 3D experience. This is why all indigenious people tell us to GO WITHIN - listen to our heart and our intuitive feeling.
According to the Oxford dictionary it is: the ability to understand or know something immediately, without conscious reasoning.
Wikipedia has this definition: Intuition is the ability to acquire knowledge without inference or the use of reason. "The word 'intuition' comes from the Latin word 'intueri', which is often roughly translated as meaning 'to look inside' or 'to contemplate'.
Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. Everything else is secondary.
- Steve Jobs
Follow your instinct. That's where true wisdom manifests itself
- Oprah Winfrey
The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift - Albert Einstein
Einstein also said this: The really valuable thing is intuition. The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, and the solution comes to you and you don't know how or why.
The famous philosopher Baruch Spinoza, is quoted as saying: The best kind of knowledge is a purely intellectual intuition of the essences of things. This "third kind of knowledge", beyond both random experience and ratiocination, sees things not in their temporal dimension, not in their duration and in relation to other particular things, but under the aspect of eternity, that is, abstracted from all considerations of time and place and situated in their relationship to God and his attributes. They are apprehended, that is, in their conceptual and causal relationship to the universal essences (thought and extension) and the eternal laws of nature.
The book The Paradox of Creation also talk about what this intuitive feeling is. Here is an excerpt:
What you experience in every moment is pre-sent to you. It is a gift - a present - given from God (The Higher Self) so we can re-member who we are. This gift - this present - is about being in the present - in the now and embracing what we experience - both "good and bad". How does this Higher Self guidance relate to the subconscious mind. Isn«t the subconscious mind in control? There is a link between the two. What you have is a higher, wiser part of you always giving you information in the form of an inner feeling or certainty. We call it intuition (inner tuition). It knows why you are here and which part you are to play this time around. It guides you down certain avenues. Intuition can be defined as: - direct perception of truth, fact, etc., independent of any reasoning process - knowledge gained not through the reasoning process or the five senses. In other words intuition is not a conscious process. There is no step-by-step procedure using logic and reasoning involved. The word intuition comes from the Latin word intueri which is usually translated as to look inside. Inside being the inner feeling - the gut feeling. Intuition is looking inside. We can access our subconscious mind through our intuition and this is the link between the two.
