Intuition – Inner Knowing and Awareness of Spiritual Energy
Posted On May 19, 2016
/ Written by Dr. Linda Gadbois
Our intuition isn’t necessarily a skill or tool that we use at will, although it can be, but comes more as a basic way of perceiving and interacting with the world around us. It comes as feelings about things as a direct experience where we know about something without a logical basis for knowing or without learning about it through our life experiences. It comes more as an inner knowing, that’s connecting with the inner nature of everything and everyone around us. It’s more like a soul-to-soul recognition, that penetrates and sees into matter through the mental atmosphere around something that it’s acting to emanate. Our soul, which is synonymous with our mind, operates out of “inner senses” or spiritual qualities that sense the “inner quality” about things and ideas. It sees through matter to the spirit or quality of consciousness that’s embodied in matter, and expressing through it as a kind of personality or quality of being. We can directly sense and interpret the feeling attitude that underlies and forms the behaviors being expressed. What we experience intuitively doesn’t have anything to do with the outer appearance of something or how it’s being presented in terms of outward appearances, but always senses the motivation and true intentions by the feelings we get when in the presence of their energy.
This ability to communicate soul-to-soul and experience the true inner nature of something as inner resonance of some sort that either harmonize with their outer expression (appearance), or contrasts it, is how we recognize congruence as integrity, or a lack of it, that attempts instead to hide its real nature and intentions. Through this “inner recognition”, we can also learn to tell true knowledge from false ideas. We can know what’s real and what’s not, because intuition “about” something doesn’t operate out of logic or rationalizing, but out of the universal laws that are based on form, function, and order. Qualities of consciousness, which stimulate us through feelings and emotions, always reveal the psychology or idea being played out. The quality around something as the feeling we get from it, tells us whether or not it’s true, right, correct, honest, and so on. Again, this doesn’t come to us through a thought process about it or our own internal rationalizing, or whether or not we can explain it from a concept of it we’ve formed in order to somehow prove it, but rather as a clear feeling of knowing without knowing “how” we know, that either makes the idea compelling and we move deeper into it, or make it repelling, and we disconnect, change our focus, and move away from it.
The question then becomes, how do you know the difference? How do you know whether or not you’re simply processing and perceiving things through your personal model, and either approving or disapproving of them based on your ability to logically understand it, or where you can’t explain it exactly, but you simply know it to be true, or acting as a form of inner guidance that’s designed to either move you into ideas or away from them. The real illusion often lies in the fact that while we think our ability to logically explain something or form a working concept of it is a good way to tell if it’s true or not, we’re always using our own “model of the world” to perceive and interpret ideas, which, chances are, is built out of a massive collection or errors that’s only capable of discerning through the same errors that we’re mistaking for truth or facts.
We’re always using what we “already know” to interpret everything else in order to “know it” by being able to perceive it through our current level of understanding. So anything that can’t be perceived through the same set of errors, can’t be meaningfully interpreted or “validated” as true using our model. Intuition, which is the perception of truth as laws operating within an idea, can be felt and known, without being able to explain or reason as to what you know and why. Because it perceives the inner nature and workings of people, things, and situations, as a recognition of their mental, energetic atmosphere, it’s always recognizing the truth of things. As soon as we try to explain why or what we know, we begin reshaping it to resemble the errors of our mental model, which is constructed primarily out of what we’ve been taught by others, and accepted as true, that we incorporated into our belief-system which becomes our perceptual lens.
As we come across “truth” as knowledge of some sort, using our intuition, which recognizes only the laws involved, we can tell by how it makes us feel in response to it, whether or not it’s true. All knowledge comes to us through a form of “seek and find” method as a pathway to knowledge or a chain-of-associated ideas that involves a kind of research as a form of treasure hunt. A search where we first have the desire in us for the knowledge as a form of connection, curiosity, or fascination, which involves us in the consistent activity of searching it out. We’re always noticing it and looking for it somehow. One avenue becomes an open door that feeds our curiosity, engrossing us with a deeper sense of fascination, wonder, and awe, and we find hidden clues within it, that when researched lead to whole new ideas of a similar nature that propels us on through an ongoing quest for knowledge that can often last a lifetime(s), never really subsiding or leaving us, but only taking us deeper into it while expanding the breath of knowledge attained through its interconnectedness to everything else.
It becomes, as the saying goes, “how far down the rabbit hole do you want to go”? Knowledge exists as layers that all interpenetrate each other, and form new insights through the incorporation of knowledge that modifies our paradigm, allowing us to see new things that we couldn’t see before. Through consistently evolving our mental paradigm through integration and synthesis of new types of information, we begin seeing life in a brand new way, and can readily see things that eluded us before or that we resisted and posed ourselves against as a result. Our logical, rationing ability as a way of interpreting things, is a produce of our mental paradigm
Intuition is how we perceive the world around us through its interconnection and wholeness. It’s the ability of the soul to penetrate matter and see directly into the spiritual essences of things as their “inner” nature. This same penetrating ability allows us to recognize the truth in all things, regardless of what the outer appearance or staged behavior is. Intuition moves us into things through an inner connection with them. It allows us to see the truths that reside in any idea or branch of knowledge produced by an individual, where certain aspects become illuminated with a sense of gravity towards them, and provide us with the seeds to continue our investigation allowing a whole series of interrelated idea to start unfolding, and we step into their secrets, wide eyed and filled with a sense of anticipation. Intuition makes learning a passionate pursuit where we learn about ourselves through the experience of learning about everything else. All learning becomes a personal journey back into the essence of who we truly are. We only “know” everything else as an “inner knowing” or form of intimacy (into me see). One produced by our authentic self in relationship with the authentic, though hidden nature of everything else.
