“It is by logic that we prove, but by intuition that we discover.“
-Jules Henri Poincaré (1854-1912)
How many of us wonder what that inner voice is? What is that gut feeling, that hunch, that we sometimes have? Is it intuition? I believe so. Everyone has intuition, some use it and know it more than others.
Intuition : 1 immediate apprehension by the mind without reasoning. 2 immediate apprehension by a sense. 3 immediate insight.
Intuition: The ability to see any event, any object from a viewpoint of the cosmic whole, from it’s culmination – the seed, the flower, the fruit in relation to the whole. The knowing of something without prior knowledge or the use of reason. All stands revealed the hearts, the motives, the causes of all events. All is open to the person.
Intuition: can be said to be a comprehensive grip of the principles of universality.
A person who develops intuition can know anything, without the barriers of time, space and any other obstructions.
What is Intuition?
The word intuition comes from the Latin work “intueri”, which means to look upon. Intuition gives you direct knowledge.
Intuition is one of the least recognized and least appreciated, and therefore one of the repressed or undeveloped functions. It is repressed by a mechanism similar to that of the repression of unconscious drives, but generally the motivation is different.
The purpose of activating the intuition is that of putting at the disposal of the individual a precious function which generally remains unused, leaving the individual incomplete in his or her development. A further purpose is to help him to discriminate between genuine intuitions and false or supposed intuitions which are really either sentimental generalizations or imaginative notions with no foundation in reality.
An intuition is not a whim, a good guess, or even blind luck. Intuition is a real force in every human psyche, is the inner spark that ignites vision and leads you to success. Intuition is a sudden and inexplicable knowing. It lies at the roots of spontaneity, humor, creativity, inspiration, and even genius.
Intuition can take on many forms: images, symbolic pictures, vivid dreams. Intuitive impressions may also be experienced. These impressions might be felt as emotions, a sense of direct knowing, a hot or cold sensation in the body or a gut feeling. Another way of receiving information is verbal. You might hear words in your mind or find that your intuitive answers will be formed as metaphors or symbols. For example, you “hear” the words telling you a new direction to take.
Intuition requires interaction with our soul nature. This knowledge from our High Self occurs when we strive toward purity, compassion, and understanding of the human condition. Intuition kicks in when we begin to listen with compassion to another person. Intuition shines when we break down barriers with each other and gain insights into being. It occurs when, in a flash, we receive an understanding beyond words. It’s a soul knowingness about the true meaning of life behind what we see. We begin to acquire intuition when we work with those virtues which are inherent to our Higher nature.
Psychologist Carl Jung calls intuition one of the four basic psychological functions, along with thinking, feeling, and sensation. It’s the function that “explores the unknown and senses possibilities and implications which may not be readily apparent.”
Everyone has intuitive flashes. Your intuition is a vital resource for you at work, social situations and in your personal life. Intuition is an inner advisor, a counselor in which you can access anywhere, anytime.
Intuitive insights suddenly appear as ideas or feelings. The solution to a problem leaps into your mind. You have a strong anxiety about taking some action but cannot understand why. Where do these things come from? You are continually, without conscious attention, recognizing patterns in the stream of sensations that impinge upon you. If one of these is important it is suddenly brought to your conscious attention.
Hone in on your intuitive skills to process the voluminous data that threatens to overwhelm your logical mind at every step. Unfortunately, many people ignore the intuitive mind and depend solely on logical thinking. Yet logic and intuition are necessary companions. Logic helps you organize and assess the forest of information in which we live.
Intuition ignites the visions and insights that inspire you.
How do you recognize your intuition? ~~ We can read all the books on the subject, take class after class, but we have to answer that question ourselves.
Intuition may come in many forms. Most people experience intuition in one of three ways. They visually see pictures, they verbally hear voices or they sense, feel or know answers. Our own charkas functions as an intuitive center. Each chakra has a link with our soul and our Divine Source self. Our intuitions job is to help us fulfill theses dreams by keeping us on track with our soul
