Due to the strengthening of light within the physical plane, we now have a larger potential to hear Spirit’s voice communicating within our hearts and minds. As a result, even individuals who have strayed far from a spiritual path can now return with greater ease than ever before. All you need is a desire to go back and give time and attention to the voice of inner knowing that you may have been denied previously.
Intuition is the term for this inner understanding. It happens in quiet, in the presence of inspiration that comes from a higher plane, and it is frequently accomplished by asking and waiting. Though certain intuitive perceptions are largely centered on the human level, such as knowing someone so well that we can predict how they will react to something or what they will do, the type of intuition that is referred to as “higher intuition” originates from a different source. It is the voice of understanding that translates messages from the soul’s level of truth, light, and wisdom.
Between human intuition and higher intuition, there doesn’t have to be much of a distinction. Yet, for many, a big gap still exists — a space that makes it more difficult to hear the words being whispered to and from the soul. Mind and heart must be willing to bridge this gap, and there must be at least a beginning of trust in one’s ability to ‘know.’
It is not necessary to teach intuition; rather, it must be permitted. It’s a potential that’s always been dormant within us, waiting for us to awaken it, like a flower awakening to the sun. We can begin with a simple desire to ‘know’ more about truth, light, and wisdom as it relates to our own lives and the lives of those we care about. We might begin to pray for the removal of any impediments to our understanding or awareness of what this reality might be.
When a desire to connect with greater truth is combined with a willingness to receive and pay attention to what has been heard or sensed, the door to inner knowing opens. There are those who ‘know’ things yet refuse to believe what their instincts tell them. They dismiss and invalidate what they feel or believe. This choice begins to close the doors to higher awareness by giving more strength to fear: fear of being wrong, fear of being different, fear of having to modify one’s life in response to what is heard. We need to be willing to hear and know in order to open the doors to intuition and keep them open.
Trust is a difficult concept to grasp because it frequently necessitates a reevaluation of how we have conducted our lives. It’s possible that life has forced us to be more practical, to concentrate on the day-to-day tasks of living and providing for others. It’s also possible that we’ve made mistakes in the past when it comes to deciding someone or what to trust. It’s also possible that we’ve forgotten about our capacity to feel, sense, and be more receptive to life on all levels. Trust entails more than just a desire to accept something from a higher plane of existence. It also necessitates a willingness to trust in our own ability to flow with life and modify what is required.
Many people have a lot of knowledge but are reluctant to admit it since they don’t know where it will lead them. This fear must be released in order to open the way to greater intuition and perceptions of light and truth.
It is especially crucial today, when there are so many major crises confronting us as a collective humanity, and so many choices that can have a tremendous impact on all of humanity, that we restore our ability to know and trust, which leads to intuition. To do otherwise puts us in the hazardous situation of not knowing what or who to believe, and not knowing which path to take in terms of improving the world and alleviating the great suffering that now exists. We live at the mercy of public opinion rather than in the presence of truth because we lack access to our deeper intuitive sense.
It is now critical for us to open to the light that is there in order to engage more completely in the collective life of mankind, as well as in the circumstances of our individual lives, for reasons that are both personal and simply part of being human. It’s time to let our inner senses awaken and transform us into the light-filled beings we are. The moment we live in demands it of us, and our emotions demand it of every one of us so that we might begin to overcome the difficulties and challenges that lie ahead of us.
We can start with a prayer or meditation, then move on to a moment of stillness and emptiness in which we don’t know what we’re doing and wait to be taught; we can prepare ourselves to be vessels of truth and light. The acknowledgment of intuition’s gifts may not happen right away, but it will, and all of existence rejoices when someone who has wandered from the road of knowing their Divine nature returns.
