Although I didn’t always make the correlation between my inward and outward thoughts growing up, I innately believed there was an external force around me, although I didn’t know what that meant.
Whenever I was dealing with anxiety and bad thoughts, I would try to chant those thoughts away in the hope that something would help me take those thoughts away. As time moved on, I eventually came to understand more around my external thoughts and learned more about intuition.
‘Pure intuition’ as it is known, is based on the teachings of the soul and soul work, us being able to understand out intuitive-self. It is just knowing, through a sense of calm. Pure intuition is a subliminal processing of information that goes beyond our rational thoughts.
It is a conversation with ourselves. It gives us the answers we need, rather than the answers we’d like to hear. It is devoid of strong physical sensation. Pure intuition relies on guidance by our inner voice.
But our biggest challenge is being able to separate our purest intuition from instinct, interpreting images through ideas, or our own experiences. Intuition influenced by thoughts and emotions and driven by an immediate reaction without forethought, isn’t the same thing. When intuition is brought about in this way, it may only be partially correct and in some cases may even be wrong.
It is through our ‘purest intuition’ that we come to recognise spiritual truths. It will tell us whether something is true. It’s the highest part of ourselves that speaks to us, ready to guide us to the most direct route on what we’re dealing with.
The difficult part is being quiet enough to hear what our intuition is telling us around our many thoughts and emotions. But once heard, it has to be relied on and recognised for what it is, without question.
It is easy to mistake what we want to be true for the voice of our pure intuition telling us that it’s true and ignoring it.
