We are all born with it, but we don’t all use it. We should use it, because without it, we really have no guidance whatsoever. It is not wrong to use what you were born with, no matter what the preacher tells you.
Call it what you want to call it, but intuition is something that we are all born with, is the thing that guides and protects us and unfortunately, is the thing that not a lot of people use to their own advantage.
I don’t understand why it is that people are so afraid of what it is that we have been born with, what it is that every creature of the mammalian persuasion has, but that the one creature of the mammalian persuasion seems deadly afraid to use – our ability to intuit things, situations and the mental machinations of other people. We sooner trust what we can physically see than what we intuitively Know.
Why it is that we are more willing to trust what other people see and know is beyond me, namely when we are each and all equipped with the very same ability to “know” things when we need to. We shun what it is that can be called the truth, and we do so because we are scared to not not know what it is once it is that the truth has been confirmed for us, through our own intuition. It is way more than only those times when we think we are guessing, when we think that it is more coincidental than much else.
We are so afraid to use what we were born with and it is cripplingly so. We do not want to grab onto what is our own Power. We fear it because inside of that power is the truth – OUR truth, and our own truth scares the hell out of us. Our own truth is not all the sort that tells us of what is not that great about us and what keeps us believing that way. Our own truth tells us that indeed we are every bit as awesome as we think we are and more. It is scary to think that we are not as damaged as we want to believe that everyone tells us is the truth.
It is bothersome to us knowing that on our own we are every bit as cool as we think we are and more bothersome because we believe that we have to live up to what we are already. Think about that last thing you just read. We are already as awesome as we need to be. In some ways we do not need any improvement, even as in many others, there is much work to be done. In our need for this improvement, whether it is a real need or an imagined need, we fail, miserably, to see who we are for real, believing only in the damages that we see there rather than the sweetness contained within our own imperfections.
Yet, the one thing about us each and all that is very cool and that we really pay not a lot of attention to is our inborn ability to intuit information. For many generations we have been taught that we are somehow, because a guy in a suit behind a pulpit said so, not amazing, that we have fallen short of the glory of a punishing god who only wants us to be enslaved to his every whim and that is that.
The reason that these guys tell us anything at all like that is control – if we, by their reasoning, are allowed to use these “magickal powers” without the permission of the god that they tell us will get us if we dare use what we are born with, most assuredly we are going to burn forever in the lake of fire. This is where a lot of our own misunderstanding comes from.
When we choose to listen to others before we listen to our own selves we end up lost in the confusion that is someone else’s understanding of things, is someone else’s thoughts and realities and someone else’s way. Organized religion wants us to not think on our own and demands that we give up the gifts we were born with and meant to use. If we all believed this much there would be no more reason for men in very expensive suits to stand before us in all of their perceived greatness, scaring the hell into us with their rhetoric of an angry, vengeful and jealous god who, like a schoolyard bully, will, at will, strike us down if we do not completely conform to whatever method of thinking and truth suits him.
It is the truth about us all, that we each will, at one time in our lives, come to the conclusion that maybe what we have been told to believe all this time was really someone else telling us this so that they would not have to be alone in their belief, and perhaps it is because no one likes being wrong. When a belief is found, not to be wrong, but simply no longer relevant to a person, this is when we start shedding what was the truth that was someone else’s in exchange for a truth that is all our own. The way that we get to that truth is NOT only asking what is someone else’s truth and comparing it to what is our own, but also is through simply trusting, literally, what our gut tells us.
What your gut tells you
You have never really lied to yourself, at least not the way that you think you have. You have had them all your life, those things called a ‘gut reaction,’ and most of the time you have heeded those reactions. It is when we are told that we have nothing to fear, and we know we do, and we are found out not too long after we ‘knew’ something that we were right. That gnawing in your gut when you just don’t want to do something or when you cannot think the way that someone else tells you to, that feeling of tightness in the middle of your Soul that reaches into your physical self and starts to give you a physical marker for the things that you needed to be confirmed about- this is what is meant to tell you when you are right, and more, when you are not right and even and especially when you are in danger.
The reactions that we have physically to anything at all is proof of our intuition at work.
Call it anything you want to call it, but what it really is is a warning system, an alarm, if you will, for things that endanger you. It is primal and embedded in each of us, just as it is in every other creature in all of mammalia. If animals in the wild still use theirs, why are we humans so hard pressed to use ours?
It is because we have been, sadly, taught to not trust our own selves. The one person on the planet who you know would not hurt you who is not everyone else and who you look at daily in the mirror – this person (YOU) is the one person who you should trust but because you have been taught since you were very young that you cannot trust your own thoughts and opinions, you mistrust your own judgment, believing that what everyone else tells you that is about you is the absolute truth of you and really, that is ass backwards.
The way that the intuition is stifled is through second-guessing ourselves. I know this monster and have learned very well as of late to tame it. For a long time I thought what was said of me was the very truth of me. Then one day I sat, through tears and thoughts of things that were not me, thoughts that told me that if I was as bad and useless as I had been told I was, then I no longer deserved to live. This was the biggest lie I had ever told me. It was not that I didn’t know better, but that forever I had been controlled by other peoples’ opinions of me.
This is what happens when you are starved for the right kind of attention and this is what happens when people who are meant to help shape who you are decide at a time when you are but a tiny little child, that who you are, who you will always be, who you will never not be, is a broken mess of a person and it is just going to be this way. Children believe in faeries and they see angels, and unless someone else comes along to tell them that those things do not exist, children will always see these things. Children believe what the adults in their lives tell them is the truth about anything and anyone, but namely about themselves.
Adults like to be in control of things. Adults like to tear things apart and tear each other down, and sometimes adults do this to children. They take away from those little tiny creatures of beauty and joy the things that make them, make us all special. Intuition is something that children use all the time. This is how they play pretend, by communicating with the beings who exist on a higher vibrational plane. Then along comes the spider called “Adult reasoning” and wrecks it all. Our intuition is an inner guidance system, is the thing that we will never be without. We cannot change this about ourselves, but without knowing so, we allow others to do it for us by allowing others to force their opinion on us and call it “the truth.” It may well be someone else’s truth, but it does not have to be your truth.
You don’t have to believe that you are the wreck that other people have told you that you are – your intuition will tell you that you are not wrong, even though other people might. Your intuition will tell you how to get away from a situation long before the situation turns into a situation that is out of control. Your intuition will tell you that what it is that you feel about anything at all, namely other people, is the truth of them according to your own truth.
If you are told that you cannot trust you, and your intuition tells you that what you are being told by this person telling you this is being said for their benefit and not yours, you should listen to you and you should forget what that other person is telling you. If you are told that what you are thinking about is wrong, and you are hearing this from one other person, and this one other person keeps on saying what they say, and you can see everything that happens around this person does not match what it is that they are telling you, trust what you see rather than only what you are told.
If you are in doubt, at all, about anything, at all, and you know that you can no longer ignore that tightness in your chest, and forever you ignored that tightness – it is either time to get to the ER, or, it is time for you to start paying attention to why it is that you have that apprehension.
The apprehensions are the things that tell you that you are right when someone else is not, and they are what tell you that you could be walking directly into the danger zone, and they are the things that make it possible for all of us to not be at the wrong place, at the wrong time, unless that wrong place and time is meant for us so that we can learn what we are meant to .
Our intuition is also a teacher in that, it teaches us, through the use of it, how to trust ourselves. This is a big problem in our society today – we do not trust ourselves. We do not believe ourselves. We are too willing to believe that someone else is right about who we are, failing to see to it that the best judge of our own character IS us. We know, through these things called a “gut reaction” when what we are doing or perhaps are attempting to do or even contemplating doing is right or wrong for us. It is when we think about what anyone else thinks about what we are doing and we act on what the ego in us wants, according to someone else’s ways, and this is when we rob ourselves of the thing that we call and the thing that we create called Truth.
We always know what is right or wrong, and we also, no matter what, always know what is right or is wrong for us. It is contained within that thing called a “gut reaction” that our truth is to be found, because within that reaction, not only is our truth there, but also is the truth that is the lie we have been told about trusting ourselves that someone else took away when we were very small children. Taking the soulful nature that is the truth of a child is easy. It is like taking candy from a baby.
We should be more inclined to endow these little humans with the truth and with the way that they will get to that truth, rather than only imparting onto them what is our truth, and a truth that may not really be the truth at all. Not even for the adults in the lives of children.
We tend to forget, at least a lot of us do, that is, what it was like to have to stifle the child who we were so that when we became adults, with children of our own, we would know how to stifle this in them. To those adults who would do this to their own kids, so that they will not have to deal with the truth that we might not want to accept about them, I have but one thing to say to you, and that is that when you let your kids be who Spirit intends, and NOT who YOU intend them to be, magical things begin to happen in that kid’s life.
I know this. I live this. I have kids. They know this. They live this.
I know what kids who trust themselves look like…
…they look like me.
Trusting one’s own intuition takes practice and patience and it starts early on in life for us all, and most of all, it takes you to not take everyone else’s opinions as though it were the very gospel truth.
I LOVE YOU ALL !
