Intuition is what the mind apprehends before rationalising
Intuitive information can show up in many ways - visual, auditory, sensory, kinaesthetic, present awareness or direct knowing. You may receive intuition in all or one of these ways at different times.
Don't expect your intuition to make sense. In fact expect your intuition to be nonsense. Sense making is the domain of the rational mind.
The trick to knowing what your intuition is telling you is appreciating that what you receive is symbolic. Symbolic information must be unpacked, interpreted, decoded. Intuitive interpretation is unique and individual and it is a skill that improves with practise.
You learn to become an intuitive interpreter as you go. Observe what is obvious about the symbol. And MAKE UP what it means to you.
There is no magic formula. And there is no mystery or enigma. Except to the rational mind.
Cultivate your intuition and practise your interpretation skills with the following two or three minute practise.
1. Choose to serve your best intentions.
2. Take a moment to presence yourself - close your eyes or soften your gaze, pay attention to your breathe and just notice the quality of this moment.
3. Let go of the need to know and now imagine [sense, see or conceptualise] a circle
4. Define that circle as the end result of the day ahead.
5. Step into the circle.
6. Notice the first thing that you get - this is your intuition - perhaps it is a word, an image e.g a banana or a sound e.g. the ticking of a clock or a direct piece of information e.g. the phrase of a song.
7. Decode what you got with respect to your end result for the day ahead?
- what is obvious about the word you got?
- what is obvious about banana?
- what is obvious about the ticking of the clock?
- what is obvious about the phrase of the song?
8. Make up what this mean to you?
Remember this is not about sense making. It is about riffing on the ridiculous.
Make it up. Have fun. Let me know how you go.
