I’ve been super busy and I wondered why I haven’t been able to tap in to my intuition as frequently as I normally have been able to.
I realised it’s because my machinery is back in play. What is our machinery? We are meaning making machines. It means we are on auto-pilot, perhaps even sleep walking through our lives.
There’s nothing wrong with this but what happens is you are at the effect of life instead of being the cause in the matter of your life.
Imagine creating and manifesting intentions and thoughts that serve you and serve the possibilities you want to step in to? How would life show up?
The easiest way to describe my machinery versus my intuition is via road rage. You have an almost automated response to a situation on the road where you feel like you are in the right and they are in the wrong, you might have a whole conversation with the other driver, who by the way can’t hear you, and swear and make facial and hand gestures in order to make yourself better (aka machinery) OR you say I have a duty of care, and I care about my neighbours, for the moment this car in front of me and this driver is my neighbour, please make safe decisions right now, and I will also make safe decisions right now. You might wave a different hand gesture that says it’s ok, it’s alright, no harm done etc, you calm the person a little knowing they have other fish to fry and other problems in their lives, just like you, you appeal to heart not just your mind, aware your thoughts create vibrations not just your verbal communication and that whatever you put out will manifest. Knowing this means you want to put out good thoughts (aka your intuition or put another way the creation of your intentions).
Try this very simply, notice what you say to others in the morning, good morning how are you. When you leave you say have a good day. It’s to a degree force of habit, but notice your thoughts when you say these things and notice if your thoughts are actually congruent with what it is you say. If they’re not congruent just notice what it is you are thinking about. Where do the thoughts come from?
Now try again with a different person or on a different day, this time you’re going to intentionally send your intent via both your thoughts and your verbal communication. You’re going to send a metta intention may you be happy, may you be free from suffering. You don’t know this person, you don’t know this day. It’s going to be the first time and watch to see what unfolds.
You can literally practice doing this every moment of everyday and you’ll begin to hear the whispers of your intuition grow louder because you’re beginning to honour yourself and your word.
Try meditation too but really be present. Be present with the breath. The minute you notice yourself drifting don’t make yourself wrong just come back to the breath. When I’m meditating properly I can feel tingles in my head and through out my body.
Afterwards I’m able to think more clearly about what it is I want in my life. I get clarity.
Imagine having more space in your mind to freely create the things you want for and in your life? It’s almost a way to archive the things that don’t serve you and restore the things that do.
What if you don’t react to reaction? What if you can be in the moment and not have the answer, focus then breathe and the answer come to you naturally? Not forced. No pressure. Relaxed and calm you become enlightened by your own wisdom and power within.
I know it’s possible because I’ve done it, just like riding a bike once you learn balance, you can never forget.
Try quietening your thoughts so you can begin to clearly hear the whispers of your intuition.
