I was asked recently what it means to be ‘intuitive’ and found it was a surprisingly challenging question to answer. After all, I thought people just ‘knew’, but perhaps that is circular reasoning!
Intuition is best described a blend of feelings in your being. It is when you just know something in your gut, in your heart, and in your soul. Sometimes it feels like a dreamy voice whispering, sometimes it feels like a memory of something you once knew, and sometimes it is simply a sacred fire burning inside. It is the powerful part of you that knows the truth.
We are all born highly intuitive. It is partly how we stay safe as children and know whom to trust. It is a shame that many of us then lose touch with our intuitive abilities over time. We are taught to rely on linear, logical, and ‘realistic’ thinking so much that we become cut off from our intuition, even to the point of asking what it is.
Yet we all still see glimpses of our intuition and its beauty from time to time. Have you noticed how intuitive you are when you fall in love? For a fleeting moment, the veil between worlds is lifted and you recognise a soul mate. You feel you know this beautiful stranger and you don’t know how or why. You just love them and your heart goes – zing.
What if all of us on Earth reconnected to our intuition? Imagine a whole planet of people living in the heart space within us that instinctively loves. I dream of a planet where we all live this way.
