WHat is intuition? How can it help you?

Is intuition the voice of your soul?

Is it the voice of your mind?

Is it the voice or feeling of your heart?

Is it the voice or feeling of your gut?

It´s challenging to define.

According to the Oxford dictionary it is: the ability to understand or know something immediately, without conscious reasoning.

A similar definition is found in Merriam Webster dictionary: The power or faculty of attaining direct knowledge or cognition without evident rational thought and inference. 

In both definitions we see that the conscious/rational element is not involved. In other words, intuition is about receiving information without any conscious, logical rational thought.

That´s why many people say it´s a feeling - a hunch - instinct. But where does this feeling (hunch or instinct) come from? Could the heart be the answer?

According to the HeartMath Institute the heart has intuitive intelligence. They have shows that the heart possesses its own intrinsic nervous system, referred to as the “heart brain.”

This intelligence system has the ability to independently sense and process information. The HeartMath Institute has repeatedly shown in scientific studies that  the heart emits electromagnetic energy.

Their research suggests that this energy carries messages and information into a field environment that is shared by and connects everyone.

In other words, we are all connected and we are all part of The Field - an intelligent field of Universal Consciousness.

This consciousness is at the root of everything.

Dr. Joe Dispenza also talks about intuition being connected to the Field. He says:

Intuition is essentially a download of information from The Unified Field into our brain. It occurs when we stop thinking and analyzing and we go into trance.

It’s almost as if our brain pauses, and that pause in the chatter allows other types of information to enter our nervous system.

The challenge most of us face is what to do with the information when we receive it. Often we tend to analyze it and not trust its authenticity.

We all have access to this type of information—some are just more skilled at receiving it than others.

The good news is that you can train yourself to become more intuitive.

Specific rhythmic pattern of the heart, referred to as “heart coherence”, can be intentionally created, thereby increasing one’s intuitive discernment and improving decision-making skills.

We know from scientific research that Intention can influence physical reality, so by using your intention you can develop your intuitive feeling.

The intuitive feeling plays an important part

The intuitive feeling plays an important part in many people´s lives - like in the life of Steve Jobs. It guided him to greatness. He was a firm believer in paying attention to this feeling. He believed it to be more powerful than intellect.

The power of the intuitive feeling is something Jobs absorbed when he visited India in his early youth. The following is a quote from Jobs about his true impression of India:

“Coming back to America was, for me, much more of a cultural shock than going to India. The people in the Indian countryside don’t use their intellect like we do, they use their intuition instead, and it´s far more developed than in the rest of the world. Intuition is a very powerful thing, more powerful than intellect, in my opinion. That’s had a big impact on my work.”

The intuitive feeling is key 

I do believe that our intuitive feeling is the Key Factor to understand who we are and why we are living on this Earth.

You are more than your body. You are also a soul. And as a soul you are using the physical body (the energy body) to gain experiences and live out your life purpose - your soul contract here on Earth. It´s similar to playing a character in a movie. You have a script.  

manuscriptYour script (your "soul contract")

So, let´s say that life on Earth is like a movie where you´re playing out your part on behalf of The One since we are All One.

How would The One (The Creator - The Universal Consciousness) make sure you didn´t get completely lost from the task at hand - from your script (soul contract)?

The answer is your intuitive feeling.

It knows your whole plan.

 You are the actor/actress choosing a part in the movie/play. As a soul you choose the character, the props, the scene, the time-period and so on, but when you come here everything is forgotten as it has to be. (Much more about all this in the book The Paradox of Creation.)

As a human being you don't know the script. You don't know your lines and how you are supposed to act. The simple reason being: Free Will.

You need to forget everything when you start playing your character. You need the element of the unknown because it makes it real. If you knew as you played your part "this Earth game" would not serve its purpose.

Only then can The One truly experience itself through you and everyone of us.

The backup-plan to where you come from and what you are doing here is "hidden" within your intuition.

When you get in touch with your heart and realize that love is the glue that holds everything together you understand why you came here.

This will also lead to a leap in the evolution for the soul and in many cases "end the game" because the soul gets closure. It can then move on beyond this 3D experience. This is why all indigenous people keep saying GO WITHIN - listen to your heart and your intuitive feeling.

Steve Jobs understood the power of the intuitive feeling. So too many other successful people.

Albert Einstein Oprah WinfreyAlbert Einstein and Oprah Winfrey on intuition.

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

Follow your instinct. That's where true wisdom manifests itself.
- Oprah Winfrey

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.

- Albert Einstein
