What Is Good, What Is Right, What Is Helpful

June 11, 2010


The more grounded and peaceful you become, the easier it will be to distinguish your intuition from your ego.

Spiritual truth, then, is universally true and without variation through time or place. It always brings peace, harmony, accord, love, compassion, and mercy. Truth can be identified by these qualities. All else is the invention of the ego.
Dr. David R. Hawkins


Let your guard down and your ego will (more…)

Leaving the City of Your Comfort

June 10, 2010

The purity of your conscience is compromised to the extent that it is influenced by your ego. A pure conscience asks, What is the right thing to do? A conscience ruled by ego asks, Will doing the right thing prevent me from getting what I want?

You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. . . . What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover (more…)

Build Your Wings on the Way Down

June 9, 2010



The more you trust in your ability to tune in to your intuitive wisdom, the easier it will be to access it. Relying on logic alone to guide your actions will take you only so far.





If we listened to our intellect, we’d never have a love affair. We’d never have a friendship. We’d never go into business, because we’d be cynical. Well, that’s nonsense. You’ve got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.
Ray Bradbury

Your intellectual decisions are biased by the (more…)

Always Aware, Always Listening

June 7, 2010



Ignoring your intuition and forging stubbornly ahead on your own is inevitably self-defeating.

God without you won’t; you without God can’t.
Desmond Tutu

Farewell to the Tranquil Mind

June 6, 2010

When you act in accordance with your inner guidance, your energy vibrates at a higher, finer rate and you come into greater alignment with the Source of all that is. The greater your harmony with this universal life force, the closer you approach the peace that surpasses all understanding.

Let the water settle; you will see the moon and stars mirrored in your being.
Rumi


Conversely, the more you tune out your inner guidance, the further you (more…)

The Whisper Which Is Heard By You Alone

June 5, 2010

Intuition is the wellspring of creative inspiration. Every artistic achievement originated with the same creative impulse that produced all of existence.

To the artist is sometimes granted a sudden, transient insight which serves in this matter for experience. A flash, and where previously the brain held a dead fact, the soul grasps a living truth! At moments we are all artists.
Arnold Bennett



Encourage this creative impulse to take root inside you, allow it to (more…)

The Butterfly Has Time Enough

June 1, 2010

Diverting course on a moment’s notice to follow your guidance can take time, an often scarce commodity these days. Yet the more time you devote to pursuing what you feel guided to pursue, the more time you seem to have for everything else.

It is familiarity with life that makes time speed quickly. When every day is a step into the unknown, as for children, the days are long with the gathering of experience.
George Gissing

You may find yourself shifting from being chronically late to feeling like (more…)

Yours for the Taking

May 31, 2010

The courage to honor your guidance requires a unique blend of faith, hope, trust, and obedience: faith that you are being pointed in the right direction, hope that the outcome will be rewarding, trust that it will, and obedience to the divine force that operates in your best interests.

Courage can’t see around corners, but goes about them anyway.
Mignon McLaughlin

Muffle your courage and you may be forever haunted by the dim realization that (more…)

Every Cell Awakens and Rejoices!

May 28, 2010

Drawing by Paul Foreman of mindmapinspiration.com




Your intuition will often express itself not as a thought in the mind, but as a feeling in the body.





The mind can assert anything 
and pretend it has proved it. 
My beliefs I test on my body,
 on my intuitional consciousness, 
and when I get a response 
there, then I accept.
D. H. Lawrence

Trust that feeling, honor it, listen carefully to the message it conveys. If it causes you (more…)

Why Do You Storm Heaven?

May 27, 2010



Intuitive guidance accounts for one of life’s most profound paradoxes: You already know the answer to every question you can ask.





God, why do I storm heaven for answers that are already in my heart? Every grace I need has already been given me. Oh, lead me to the Beyond within.
Marcina Wieherkehr

Socrates stated more than twenty-four hundred years ago that “learning” could be more accurately described (more…)

Acting in Concert With God

May 25, 2010



Check in with your inner voice for confirmation before making an important decision or tackling a challenge. It is your channel to divine wisdom.

You know nothing till intuition agrees.
Richard Bach



Listen to your conscience and you realize that there is a fine line between your actions and God’s actions. Listen more deeply, and you (more…)

Pointing the Way

May 24, 2010



Your conscience flows from and is an expression of your intuition, which in turn flows from and is an expression of divine consciousness.

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




Intuition is pure truth, pure knowing. It is Truth with a capital T. It (more…)

Sit Down In the Fire

March 12, 2010

The step-by-step transformation from ignorance to cosmic consciousness is vividly portrayed in the blockbuster movie, The Matrix. In the beginning, Neo, the central character, is clueless that his world is an elaborate fabrication. Exposed to the truth, he continues to resist until the existence of a different reality can no longer be ignored. Over time, he wraps his mind around the concept until it is fully integrated into his consciousness. Finally, as his life hangs in the balance, he experiences an epiphany and becomes one with the cosmos.

If your knowledge of fire has been turned to certainty by words alone, then seek to be cooked by the fire itself. Don’t abide in borrowed certainty. There is no real certainty until you burn; if you wish for this, sit down in the fire.
Rumi

Neo’s journey—fictional, yes, (more…)

Echo Bodine’s Heartbreaking Sacrifice

September 28, 2009

Author and psychic Echo Bodine told me a very powerful and very intimate story for my book, Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything, that emphasized the importance of listening to and heeding our intuition. May Echo’s experience inspire you to find the strength and courage to listen to that still small voice within. Here is an excerpt from her profoundly moving story, beginning with her bio.

When I was a sophomore in college, I found out I was pregnant. When my boyfriend and I talked about getting married, my inner voice very adamantly said, No! But I pretended I didn’t hear it and kept on trying to make this really difficult situation more workable for me, my boyfriend, and our families. Our premarital counselor said that, even though we were both young, we could probably make it work. But all along, my intuition kept saying, (more…)

Follow Your Guidance

August 27, 2008

angel-walking-in-oceanThe inner voice of your conscience is constantly guiding you. You will “hear” that voice in any number of ways. It may manifest as an unpleasant feeling in the pit of your stomach. It may express itself as a flash of insight that helps you make a difficult decision. Or you may feel nudged in the right direction at a crucial fork in the road.

While some people hear that voice more clearly, it is accessible to anyone who chooses to listen. Indeed, the challenge is not to further develop your intuition but to (more…)
