Today's quotation:

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind
is a faithful servant.  We have created a society that
honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.

Albert Einstein

Today's Meditation:

I find it absolutely fascinating just how often my intuition is completely right, even in situations in which there's no explanation at all for it functioning.  Sometimes I know who's calling, and I even start thinking about that person before the phone rings.  Sometimes I know what's going to happen, and I'm able to respond to the happening before it ever happens.  There are times when I know what someone's going to say before they say it.  The intuition that we all have is not just a sacred gift but a marvelous one, and it's a shame if we simply discount it and what it gives us as simply chance.

As I grow older, I try to rely more on my intuition and less on my logic and reason.  This goes counter to what the people in my life expect me to do--in our country, at least, we've put logic and reason in the highest positions of importance while neglecting our intuition, the very thing that we should be allowing to guide us more strongly.  But over the years I've noticed regularly that when I ignore my intuition, things almost never work out for the best, and they almost never work out the ways that I had planned for them to work out with my logic and reason.

Part of our problem with accepting intuition, I think, comes from those people who equate intuition with mind reading or predicting the future.  Other people try to manipulate us by making exorbitant claims about what they're able to do because of intuition, and we find it hard to trust them.  But when we accept our intuition as a part of who we are and make an effort to learn to listen to it and trust it, we find that our lives acquire a new dimension that wasn't there before, a new connection with all that is that we couldn't feel before.

You have a gift--in fact, we all do.  The question is whether we're going to use it, or leave it wrapped up, unused, while we play with the other gifts we've been given in life.

Questions to consider:

Why are so many of us so skeptical about intuition and what we can accomplish with it?

How might we use intuition to strengthen our lives?

What kinds of experiences have you had with intuition?  How have you reacted to them?

For further thought:

Intuition is the highest form of intelligence,
transcending all individual abilities and skills.
