Intuition is a phenomenon of the mind that describes the ability to acquire knowledge, without inference or the use of reason.
More frequently referred to as the “Sixth sense” or “Anthar Drushti”. Intuition is the inner mechanism of instinctively knowing something, without means of a logical thought process.
Everyone has experienced intuition in the form of what we call an inner voice, but the degree of intensity will vary dependent upon the level of ones consciousness.
According to William Duggan we have 3 levels of intuition. The first being ordinary intuition, which is a base level of instincts (as
found in animals). The second is expert intuition, which comes in the form of a trained response, and the third is received as a “flash of insight”.
As the consciousness of human beings increase, from basic animal instinct to intelligence and intuition, we can then live in a more conscious state of awareness. We are all evolutionary beings and at this point in our evolution, we are not fully developed in terms of intuitive communication and conscious awareness. So, you could say that living in a heightened intuitive state, is the ultimate aim of humanity.
Intuition is the basis of our connection to the esoteric and intuition stems from feelings that are generated by our heart centers.
All extra sensory abilities of psychic awareness, telepathy, clairvoyance, clairaudience, etc. simulate at the heart center and it is only be knowing your own heart, that you can raise your consciousness through intuitive awareness.
Recently, scientists have discovered that the heart generates a powerful and measurable electromagnetic field that resonates frequencies interacting with the fields of others around us. Showing for certain that the heart is a much more complex organ than initially thought.
The heart is now considered to have the same characteristics as a functional brain, aiding the process of sensory information. Revealing that a subtle, yet influential energy-based communication system, operates just below our level of consciousness.
This is the first scientific evidence that proves our hearts have their own unique consciousness. Meaning that there is a communication highway between our hearts and our minds, as well as our hearts and the hearts of others.
For this reason, intuition is then accredited to the conscious perception and communication from the heart level. Shining new light on the expression always follow your heart.
Here are 5 Critical Reasons to Always Follow Your Heart
1. Use it or lose it
That little nudge you feel, or that small glimpse of insight that you see before you’re about to make a decision. That is your inner voice calling. It’s your intuition, and you better pick up the phone, because intuition is like a muscle. You must exercise the muscle in order to maintain its strength.
Every time you don’t pick up the phone, the harder it will be, to hear it ring next time.
2. It will catch up with you
When you don’t follow your intuition, your path gets harder. The fall out of events that transpires after the improper choice is made, tends to send you down the path of most resistance, until finally you see where the error initially occurred.
Sometimes, the intuitive nudge was about a simple choice that you notice right away and think, Why did I do that? and sometimes it comes as a grand AHA moment when you suddenly realize you weren’t listening to yourself all along…
3. Who likes regret?
We can safely assume that every person has gone through a time where they had thought to themselves, what if? What if I had just said yes? What if I had listened to my heart, instead of my head?
No one likes regret.
4. Improves Emotional and Spiritual Health
When we are right brain dominant and not in a balanced equilibrium between left and right brain, masculine and feminine. What we end up with, is a society composed of strictly rational, logical minds, that stifles creative expression and rewards inflated egos.
An out of control ego, restricts spiritual and emotional growth, as well as blocks the natural flow of energy within the chakras, Cutting off the intuition and the connection to the spiritual at the heart center.
5. Increases Your Conscious State
By trusting our intuition, it allows us to be more consciously aware of situations and activities in our life.
When we listen to our hearts, we are in tune with our intuition. This connection reveals the once hidden truths about ourselves, and our current situations in life. Allowing us the ability to stay in touch with our subconscious mind, releasing us from limitations and removing aspects of the restrictive ego. This then leads to tremendous growth, creativity and an evolution of conscious awareness.
