If you haven’t already, please go back and read parts 1-4 of this series. The lessons are short, but please do not rush through them. Use them as an opportunity for contemplation, growth and healing.
Why would you believe that the solutions to the challenges you face are in what you’ve already thought of or in what somebody else has suggested? They’re not. The answers lie deep within you at the core of who you really are. With your intuition, you can find them.
Whether you know it or not, deep down inside you, you know why you chose to incarnate on this planet at this time. You know why you are in the situations you are in now. You know why these challenges are good for you. All is in divine order and divine timing. You know it’s all leading you to a deeper sense of your Self, of awakening, of healing, and of growth.
So why try to use the mind to understand all this? It’s stuck in a box of limiting beliefs and rigid, controlling expectations. Shift out of that place and enter the land of your soul and there you will know who you are, why you are where you are and where you are going.
Intuition opens you up to the big picture rather than to the little, narrow-minded, myopic picture of your ego. The ego thinks, “I’m suffering, woe is me!” But your Soul or intuition helps you understand, “No, at the moment, I am learning. And this is what I am learning and this is where it it’s all going and why.”
How do you make sense of the things that happen to you in your life? What do you use as your source for perspective, understanding, meaning, and purpose in your life? Do you go within? Do you believe that there is a purpose and a meaning for everything that happens? Do you realize that you can be a master of your life and not a victim?
Quiet your mind for a moment now and then bring up an issue in your life that is a challenge. Focus on an image or feeling about this challenge for a minute or so and then sit back and “see” what insights, inspirations or images you get. Don’t think; just trust and feel into what you get.
The more often you practice this, the better you will get at accessing the wisdom within you. That wisdom is waiting to reveal itself to you.
