Intuition is not just a term to define as it goes beyond that. Regardless of the huge role it plays in our everyday lives and society and in quoting Steve Jobs, he called intuition “more powerful than intellect.” Ivy Estabrooke, a program manager at the Office of Naval Research, told the New York Times in 2012 that “There is a growing body of anecdotal evidence, combined with solid research efforts, that suggests intuition is a critical aspect of how we humans interact with our environment and how, ultimately, we make many of our decisions.” Meditation and other mindfulness practices are key to tapping into your intuition. Mindfulness can help you unclutter mental noise and be objective.
When you’re dreaming for instance, you’re receiving data from intuition. If you pay attention to your dreams, you can get a lot of data about how to live your life. This further propels one’s life path and purpose towards their own purpose or purposes while here on earth. Their current life path may need a change in order to be happy or at peace. Mindfulness is a powerful tool to utilize in encompassing one’s own true identity and not be stuck in the day-to-day rut of unhappiness. Mindfulness is simply awareness of one’s self and through empathy become aware of others. Why does one think and feel the way they do? Can you become aware of yourself in a stranger?
A 2013 study published in the journal Perspectives on Psychological Science showed that mindfulness — defined as “paying attention to one’s current experience in a non-judgmental way” — may help us to better understand our own personalities. Anger and fear fill our minds with an overload of emotion charged thoughts and projected outcomes. When this occurs, our ability to identify intuitive information in a timely manner drops drastically, especially if there is confusion at the helm. Imagine looking for that specific paper on a desk overflowing with documents, or hearing a whisper over all the static noise. Breathing through emotional current to maintain awareness in the moment, so not to react but act on the proper course.
It’s been shown and published in many articles that being in a positive mood raised the ability to make better intuitive judgments and choices thus leading to a better outcome. The easiest way to change the world is through compassion in action. A simple smile can change the world of someone. It is a mantra society can learn to live by, and if so, imagine how much more positive vibes and energy frequencies would be raised for us to all enjoy and live in.
For now, one can only teach, preach and educate these life lessons and the need to evolve getting away from being stuck like a ghost! We have free will and with such freedom, why cage yourself if you can fly? “Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will be as one.” ~ John Lennon
