Being thrown of the habitual path is an experience that happens to all of us at one time or another in our lives. The truth is it happens multiple times. And as Tolstoy reflects in the quote above, “it is in the experience of being lost, that we come to our proverbial senses.” And this is the place from which we discover ourselves…all of ourselves.
We spend an inordinate amount of time everyday THINKING we are thinking. The cognitive part of our brain thinks it is the big boss and if we haven’t the time or the inclination, we build a wall around our senses.
So, how do you take that first step back on a new path after all feels lost. Ah, there is the word. Feel. I know, messy huh. But tracking our feelings – what we sense is the very way in to all SIX of our senses. So, here is the tracking intuition tip for this week in the five-part series.
Tracking Intuition Tip #2
Your Sixth Sense is one of your five on steroids.
Your Intuitive-How – Mapping the Muscles
A great and simple way to begin to exercise your intuition and develop it as a tool is to look at your five senses in a new way. The first and most important tool isn’t to understand intuition; it is to understand YOUR intuition.
Your 6th sense is a frame of reference with the 5 senses you already use.
Each of us is a blend, with a few of these being our predominant ways receiving information. We are getting intuitive information all the time. When you understand how you are likely to be getting information, you will be able to lift more “wait” with your right mind!
Why is it important?
- I always say, once you are aware of your patterns, you are 70% of the way to change. In this case, the change is the increased power and reliability of your intuitive voice. It is important to suspend your disbelief when learning to trust your intuition. Sometimes the impressions we receive make no logical sense, but carry valuable symbolic information for us to decipher.
- Think back to a time when you acted on your intuition. Do you remember HOW you received the information? Was it a feeling in your body, a thought, an image, a voice, or a sense of knowing? Now try to think of another time. How did you receive that information? And another? Is there a pattern to the information? Once you start to notice a pattern in the way information comes, you will be better able to recognize it as valuable rather than random chatter.
- When you know your intuitive type, you will notice the clues coming your way IN the way your intuition speaks to YOU.
Time to exercise this “common sense”. Indeed, it is “here that the new and the good things begin.”
