Intuition or Impulse?

20130317-155147.jpg

All too often it seems that people mistake intuition for impulse, and vice versa. I can see how it could be confusing: both are inner “gut” feelings, so how do you differentiate?

The simple answer is that one comes from a place of calmness and centered serenity, while the other comes from a whirringly over-active mind.

It certainly is possible to have intuitive feelings as a person who is not centered … it simply is difficult to differentiate. You could be a highly intuitive person; one who values and prizes their intuitive abilities a great deal. If you are not taking the time to center yourself however you will simply be acting on impulse half of the time and mistaking it for intuition.

I’m speaking from experience here, as I’ve always known myself to be an intuitive person. It wasn’t until I began meditating daily that I started to notice the difference … and WHAT a truly profound difference it is!

Intuition often requires a lot of patience. At one point in my life I felt intuitively led to literally just WAIT for months on end until the timing was right and my intuition guided me accordingly. After a few months of just waiting you really DO start to doubt whether it actually was intuition that told you to wait in the first place. But OH was the wait worth it … the results of that waiting were monumentally life changing … for the better. Waiting for guidance is every bit as important as acting on it.

I’m speaking in generic terms of course … waiting for an intuitive form of guidance, to me, is synonymous with waiting on God. If you never take the time to quiet your mind and meditate (i. e. connect with God) it is extremely difficult to hear anything but yourself … your own thoughts, insecurities, childhood programming, fears, and anxieties all doing constant calisthenics in your head.

If you’re at all competitive, or like a challenge? Try living intuitively for … a month, let’s say. All it requires is that you spend some time meditating every day … connect with God, allow yourself to be Loved, to BE Love … and, from that centered space, when your instincts tell you to do something … you do it. It’s that simple … and hard. If it truly was simple then everyone would be doing it … because there is no more profitable way of living life … on every level.

I guarantee you that if you try living intuitively, as described above, for one month … it will change your life.

Prove me wrong, I dare you ;-).

Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.
