Out intuition nags at us all day, every day. We develop a habit of resisting the information we are being given. We would much prefer our world to be the way we choose to see it through our logical, rational eyes. When something won’t fit with the logic we resist. In fact, resisting applies to all sorts of information we would rather not notice. We resist that feeling or this thought. We tell ourselves that what we are thinking can’t be right. We prefer to judge with a negative bias. Somehow we have become conditioned to making life as hard as we can for ourselves. So when we try cosmic ordering to manifest what we need or want we often place the order and then deny it’s what we really want. It’s a bit like going into a restaurant, ordering a tasty meal and then saying to ourselves that we can’t possibly enjoy all those lovely calories – it’s not good for our body. When the meal arrives we eat with such guilt that it tastes like sawdust.
Stepping away from restricting ourselves isn’t easy. After all it’s a habit it’s taken us a lifetime to perfect. So if we ignore our intuition as a matter of course how much harder does it make being able to take an intuitive leap? My connections with the Spirit World haven’t come about because of logic or a rational approach. When I consider the way my development has happened it’s very clear that a big step forward has always followed an intuitive leap. There is a kind of ‘let’s try this’ exploration going on. Something stirs my curiosity and the next thing I’m full on in an experience to find out all about what I was curious about. The things I get curious about also come along in what, on the outside, look like a series of random chances. Yet underneath there is clearly a pattern of acquiring experiences that prompt the next big leap. The more I take those intuitive leaps the stronger my trust in my intuition has become.
Yet I keep resisting. It’s as if the logical part of me finds it hard to let go. Perhaps the magic that happens when we create big strides forward puzzles my logical mind. Intuitive leaps do bring magical outcomes. Not only unforseen but also unexpected things happen when we ‘go with the flow’. Big answers leap into our concious mind. Issues are clear and decisions seem to take themselves. Of course some of this resistance is the underlying fear of change. We set up habits and patterns to give us the illusion of control over our outer world. We also do this to make our inner world more routine for our self investigation. Resisting allows us to notice that we are stepping outside of our internal comfort zone. We are breaking the mould that we set our creativity into. Observing that resistance, feeling it and understanding it opens the door to choice. We can stick with resisting or we can leap forward.
Resistance isn’t, as often quoted, futile. We are human beings who like to challenge ourselves – a lot! Resisting your intuition can teach you a lot about how you are narrowing down your choices. The brave thing to do is to notice the resistance, feel the feelings and leap anyway. Is it time you took another intuitive leap in your life?
