More on intuition


I didn't plan to write more about intuition but obviously there is a greater force at work which directed me this week!
A lot was written about it, many defined it, and I dare to say that everyone had an experience or encounter with it. Be it that unusual gut feeling when you are about to do something, sudden decision against all your previous plans or even knowing/feeling something is just not as it should be. However, the way we deal with it is another story.
What can we lose, what do we risk by letting it lead us? Is it taking us into the unknown, could it be better than we can possibly imagine? 
Actually, I find the answers to these questions irrelevant anyway. Mostly because things are not always what they seem to be, good or bad, right or wrong.

I was always a very intuitive person but it was just recently when I let "her" take the lead fully. "She" never took me a wrong place, never lost me, never disappointed me. 

However, letting it lead also means letting things happen to you that you would rather prevent, avoid; it involves letting yourself shrink a bit, not relying entirely on your mind; it is accepting yourself as a vulnerable being.

"At times you have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover is yourself." Alan Alda


A few days ago it hit me! I know it is obvious but I realized the word itself "intuition" gives the answer! In-tuition - inner teacher, the wise man/woman in everyone of us! Walking my dog, I was thinking how easily we give up the wisdom that resides within. We acknowledge and accept people with skills, gifts, and abilities to teach us, heal us, or give us the answers. We empower them and humble ourselves or even worse, inflate our own knowledge and knowing and thus separate ourselves from others.

I guess it is good to remember we all have that same spark within, the very same teacher, sharing the same profound wisdom. Everyone's journey is different and everyone needs different tools and that's  why our inner teacher provides us with different teachings and opportunities.

One night when I thought the way was definitely lost in darkness, I sat and cried in my bedroom. It was then when I first heard her talking to me. She used different words, words she knew I would understand and accept. She used the language I never had to learn, yet never really used before. A year later, out of all the twists and turns she took me to and guided me through, a book came to life, I got some answers and the imprint of joy in my life!
