”The sixth sense probably is the medium of contact between the finite mind of man and Infinite Intelligence, and for this reason, it is a mixture of both the mental and the spiritual.”
~ Napoleon Hill
Through daily prayer and meditation, I have become aware of how my five senses (touch, sight, smell, taste, hear) are used inside my body as well as on the outside of my body. Intuition is inner understanding that directs you to do what you ultimately need. It tunes your inner senses and offers a guide for how to know inspired thoughts. Intuition has helped me live a life with a greater sense of faith, presence, peace, purpose and flow.
Maybe you can relate to this kind of intuitive awareness.
- The voice in our head that says, “Help that stranger,” “Look up! The cars are stopping in front of you,” and “Take the back road.” You will know when you hear these thoughts. They are clear, concise, and to the point.
- The feeling in your gut sometimes referred to as “gut instinct.” Sometimes it can be felt as a lump in the throat and is thought of as the sixth sense.
- A subtle knowingness that seems like it may be from intellect, but you can tell it really isn’t. You know it to be true even though you don’t have factual information or you just feel inspired.
- Intuition shows up in consistent messages or signs. Have you ever thought about a topic and that same topic is found in an article or book you read the next day? This is a great indicator that you are aligned with the topic and you should make your next move.
- When you use your intuition regularly, you live a life of ease and flow.
I have helped numerous clients understand the different repetitive nature of their thoughts. Once they understand the repetitive thought, they are able to intuitively question themselves to learn what hidden benefits they obtain by keeping either the dysfunctional thought or pattern or the inspired thought at bay. This helps them learn the truth about the thought or pattern. Once the truth is revealed, new healthy behaviors (dragons) can be established.
“Jess”, a yoga teacher, found that she continued to injure herself while teaching one particular class. I had her begin questioning herself. “Why did I choose to hurt myself?” After initially stating that she didn’t choose to, we learned that she was getting attention from a student she had a crush on. Although Jess wasn’t intentionally injuring herself, we found that some part of her was benefiting from the injury.
Now, Jess can teach this class without self-injury. She also knows that if she likes this man, she can take healthy actions to pursue him.
