April 28th - Intuition

Friday, April 28, 2017

"Intuition is a spiritual faculty,
and does not explain, 
but simply points the way."

"Intuition has been called our 'sixth sense'...
the capacity to know something 
without rational evidence that proves it to be so...

I'm not hear to debate the existence of an intuitive power...
because I know that it exists.

So do you.

The question that interests me today is:
do you use your intuition?

Think of yourself as a radio.

Is your dial set clearly on the intuitive station so that you can
 receive the information you need when you need it, 
or are you just picking up static?"

"It is only by following your deepest instinct 
that you can lead a rich life

and if you let your fear of consequence prevent you 
from following your deepest instinct 
then your life will be safe, expedient and thin."
-Katharine Butler Hathaway

"Intuition tries to communicate with us in inventive ways. 
One way is...'the educated gut,' which frequently slaps us to pay attention by triggering a visceral, physical reaction in our bodies.
One such intuitive signal is the emotional trembling that accompanies creative discovery or warns us not to take a certain action. 
Another intuitive message breaks through when we suddenly grasp that to try something new might be delightful; we do so and are surprised by joy. 
A third intuitive nudge occurs through revelation; the inner knowing that helps us arrive at the right place at the right time so that we can be swept away by the benevolent flow of synchronicity that gets us where we're meant to be as easily as the Universe can arrange it.

Today, go within and seek the wisdom and guidance of your authentic self.

She steadfastly waits to speak to you through the whispers of your imagination and the glimmers of you intuition. 

But if you want to learn to develop this marvelous power, you must first be willing to take a leap of faith and trust it."

I don't know about you, but I have felt this sixth sense definitely as a mom. Somehow, I just knew what to do. Sometimes I didn't, but more often then not I just knew how to take care of my kids. 

Your intuition is one of the ways your authentic self speaks to you. 

Let's take a listen, shall we?

Gratitude Journal

1) Today was day 5 of swim lessons...5 left. Today they were full on swimming, it was pretty impressive. It takes me forever to learn something, and here they are and in only 5 days have basically learned not to drown. That's pretty awesome.

2) Today is Friday. That means tomorrow is Saturday. 

3) Jam sessions with my cousin. Music is so awesome.

4) The word awesome. I use it a lot.
