Intuition literally means learning from within….
When we encounter any new experience as a child we look towards our elders and our peers to make sense of it. We take their words and learnt experience and trust it’s right.
But as we grow older we start to question …our own judgment and extended learning, our logic and as a gifted person our gut starts to question what once we thought we knew. But sometimes we simply blindly accept all we are told as the truth and things can get very blurred along the way.
Being told something is right and knowing something is right are two different things. You can be told as many times has you like. But you and only you must find the truth within. This is very important for those accepting a spiritual path. For a spiritual path is not one run by a set of rules..it is a natural living way of life.
Those whom truly work with spirit and can pass between the realms will understand we are souls experiencing an earthy existence. It’s natural. It’s beautiful and it’s just part of you as much as breathing. You were born with this. But it has been shaped by your family, by your peers, by the media, by communities, by your teachers and by our history. Where they all right? Of course not. Your thinking has been shaped by the knowledge you gained as you grew up. It does not mean it was true. You and only you have within you the truth.
Please be wary of what you think you know re spirit and spirituality. Be wary that when we encounter a community or new group, our first perceptions tend to be coloured by first contact, and by the loudest, most attention-grabbing details or people, the big story lines – the scary stories, the drama filled stories. That’s inevitable, especially if it doesn’t occur to you to think these things may not be representative of the truth. So be wary of the books you have read, the films you have watched, the history you have learnt, the classes you sit in, the teachers who cross your path, it is not all true. If something does not feel right to you then it’s not right.
Most true spiritual people are quiet people doing quiet work, and there are an abundance of people who will say something quiet, interesting and non-confrontational, but that gets drowned out easily when others are determined to shout and scare people. The peaceable get lost among the dramatists. It takes one or two voices to create a totally skewed perception. That can be damaging in a great many ways. It has over the years caused countless damage in the spiritual community. Firstly, anyone looking in from outside will see the noise far more easily than they will spot the gentle majority. Secondly, those on the inside may lose sight of being part of a quiet, sane and reasonable community if just a few people kick off. Yes, there are some dodgy spiritualists out there and this makes this community even harder. But human beings of dishonorable and unpleasant intent turn up everywhere.
So by all means, read, watch and attend classes, but remember to question, but by not only thinking – feel it too, and if it feels wrong, you know the answer.
