Intuition and Synchronicity
OK, so we’ve all heard the phrase “trust your intuition”….but what does that mean?
It took me a long time to understand how important it really is to listen to my own inner voice or intuition. I thought it was just for when I was making big decisions, but I eventually came to understand that its far, far more than that…your intuition guides you every step of the way – if you tune in to it. It helps you make conscious decisions, rather than just reacting blindly to situations. It can keep you out of trouble, help you find answers, and open up doors of opportunity.
Let me give you some practical examples:
You are on your way to an appointment, to a place you frequent regularly, so you have a familiar route that you always follow. This route is direct, and gets you to your destination easily, you know where you’re going…or do you? So here you are, driving along humming to your favourite tune on the radio, you’ve given yourself plenty of time, and suddenly the thought pops into your mind that you should turn left at the next junction – instead of going straight like you always do. Why on earth would you change your route now?
Well, lets say you do turn left and take a slightly longer route, but get to your destination safe and maybe two minutes late. On your way home, you hear a report on the radio about a horrendous road accident involving several vehicles – on the road you usually take at the precise time you would have been driving along it. You may have been one of those vehicles! That’s intuition guiding you away from danger.
Another example: You need to buy a birthday gift for a special friend. You’re wandering around your local mall and a little shop entrance catches your eye. Its not a shop you intended going into, in fact you’ve never been in the shop before, but something prompts you to take a peep inside. The shop assistant is very friendly and helpful and shows you a few items…things you would not normally have considered for your friend. However, this time something tells you your friend would really like this gift, even though you’ve never seen her with anything similar and she’s never mentioned it to you…so you buy it, praying your right.
Your friend is stunned and delighted when she opens your present….she had been looking on the internet trying to find where she could buy this exact item. She asks you “how did you know? I haven’t told anyone”. Wow!
Are you beginning to understand how this works now?
I have been browsing in a book shop when a book has quite literally fallen off the shelf at my feet – when there was no one else anywhere near. When I’ve bent down to pick it up, something tells me that I need to buy the book, even though it was not what I was looking for and may be a subject I had not considered reading. I could have just dismissed it as a random event, but I didn’t, I bought the book. The message the book provided, was perfect and just what I needed.
This seems to be the way synchronicity works best for me….I am a sucker for books and book stores. So now, when I walk into the store I silently ask to shown the perfect book that will provide the guidance I need at this time. If my attention is caught by a particular book cover…the colours or images, perhaps a single word in the title…I take notice. It could just be THE book for me !!
Sometimes when we are looking for answers, we completely miss the solution – because we are so busy trying to figure things out in our minds.
Often, the answer will come to you in a most unexpected way. A stranger in a lift may pass what seems like a random comment, you may hear something on the radio or during a TV interview that catches your attention. You may pick up a magazine that you would never think to buy, just to flick through in the doctors waiting room (this has happened to me a couple of times) and there is an article on the subject you are struggling with, giving you the perfect solution.
The trick with intuition is to be open to synchronicity, the synchronistic moments (seemingly unconnected or random events) that offer you possible solutions, or guidance. When that little inner voice talks to you, don’t just dismiss it…it could save your life, or at least help you choose the right outfit to buy for that special event. LOL
Oh, and don’t just rely on your eyes and ears….use all your senses & your dreams…they will intuitively guide you through your days (and nights).
But how do you know when you are “in the flow”…its quite simple really – when your life seems to be just unfolding effortlessly, without hiccups, you are trusting your inner guidance and not trying to force things to happen, or not happen.
“What you resist, persists”….meaning, that you are fighting the natural process that your life needs to follow.
Like a tree…ideas/dreams begin life as a tiny seed in the dark, pushing through the soil of your mind towards the light as a seedling, gradually becoming a young flexible sapling, growing and growing till it stands majestically - a magnificent oak. Each stage of its growth is vital and perfect.
You may want something, but that doesn’t mean its right for you, or what you “need” at that moment. Like the tree, you need to be flexible, bend with the winds of life. When you learn to trust this unfolding process, work with your intuition and synchronicity, don’t get uptight when things go other than how you expect and enjoy the excitement of not knowing where the Universe will place you next…you are in the flow.
All is perfect. And so it is.
