Holy Spirit of Intuition
Inner wisdom has been called by many names throughout the ages. Practically
speaking I would call it intuition and on a religious level, I would
call it the Holy Spirit. Carolyn
Myss says that intuition is neither the ability to engage prophesy nor a
means of avoiding financial loss or painful relationships, but that it
is actually the ability to use energy data to make decisions in the
immediate moment. Placing
too much emphasis on any one way of being or doing this can blind one
and lead to debilitating self-importance.
If we place too much emphasis on form, whether this is one form
or many, whether it be a technique or belief system, we will miss the
direct mystical communion that surpasses all the explanations of the
mind Each of us is
called to honor the wisdom of our own process, to maintain a lively
balance between the ability to listen and the ability to find our answer
and make our decision.
We can always trust this inner
wisdom and hold a personal attitude of positive expectancy.
The decision will always be the right one for us if we
consciously choose the best world view, the one that enhances our
of interconnectedness, trust, and love.
As we continue to make honest and loving choices, miraculous
results occur. Life will
take on new dimensions and we will become more mature and physically
begins to flow naturally with grace and without struggle.
We begin to see good reasons for why things happen.
Journaling is one activity that can assist us in this
retrospective knowledge that good comes to us from various life events.
As our lives fall into alignment with our inner wisdom, we may
notice an increase in coincidences and synchronicities in our lives,
affirmations that we are on the right path.
We may see that it takes less time for our insights and wishes to
manifest in reality. Another
activity that can assist us in improving this "intuitive
muscle" is working with symbols.
Thus, dreams are important as they offer themselves to us.
They can be silent counselors, helping us to get in touch with
this inner wisdom as we learn more and more about our motives and our
One of my favorite stories is that of Vasalisa, found in Women
Who Run with the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes.
Vasalisa is a story of handing down the blessings of women's
power of intuition from mother to
from one generation to the next.
This great power of intuition is composed of lightning-fast inner
seeing, inner hearing, inner sensing and inner knowing.
In the story, intuition is developed by completing certain life
tasks. Thus, as we grow
older, our intuition can greatly increase if we have integrated our many
life experiences. And so, I
plan on continuing to grow in my ability to trust in this God-given
divine connection which gives to my life such peace and joy.
