Someone asked me the other day, “How do I know when something is right for me?” We were talking about Intuitive Knowing. This scenario can be attributed to when we come to a crossroad in life and we are trying to determine the best path to take for ourselves or for others. This is an enormous topic which can be difficult to break down. Let’s try and pick out one aspect of “Intuitive Knowing”. Somewhere along the way in our history as a species we lost our intuition. This mothering, feminine principle of our intuitive ‘hunches’ are our internal navigation system that ‘knows’ without reason or scientific explanation. This is our 6th sense about something which can not be explained and is embodied when something seems absolutely ‘right’ for us or absolutely ‘not right’ for us.
For example, let’s say we were walking down a city street. There is no one around. It’s dark outside and all of a sudden, we find ourselves with the option of walking down a dark deserted ally to get to our destination. This direct route looks and feels uneasy to us. We are not sure if we should walk down this dark and deserted ally or if we should turn around and find a ‘safer’ path to follow. Let’s say part of the reason we may feel uneasy about walking down this ally is because of the stories we have been told from when we were younger. Maybe, our parents warned us not to do this or news reports have shown how dark ally’s can be a place where criminals hang out. Or maybe the person who is at the point of deciding to walk down the ally is a martial artist. Maybe this person has a black belt in karate, and they feel completely comfortable walking down a dark ally knowing all the possibilities that could happen. They have a different perspective and have worked at gaining the intuitive ‘sense’ through their martial arts to ‘know’ they can protect themselves.
Now, let’s return to the other person who does not have this training but has a family history of fearful family members and ancestors and maybe has direct experiences themselves that have led them to distrust situations like this. Therefore, they will always avoid these experiences. They will spend a life time of avoiding ‘scary’ circumstances and this ally scenario is just a representation of what they will do to always feel safe out of fear. There may even be other people just like this person that take it a step further and feel they must always be ready for ‘unsafe’ circumstances to arise. They must even arm themselves with protective devices ‘just in case’ they run into a circumstance that is life threatening. In all these circumstances, they are prepping themselves for something that could happen based on past experiences. Whether they consistently avoid dark allies or arm themselves in advance they have one thing in common. Fear is the driving force of their reality. They have already predetermined all the possible unsafe outcomes and live their lives avoiding or ready to defend against stressful situations.
This is not ‘intuitive’ knowing. Such, we need to know what it is not before we can understand what it is.
Intuitive knowing is a delicate muscle that must be exercised regularly. We must exercise being certain in the uncertain. We must become positive and exuberant with possibilities all the time. We must see every experience as the opportunity we were asking to show up. This may seem like a ‘dream’ reality.
Let’s see this differently. We are energetic beings. Every pulse in our body is based on energy. From the moment we birthed into our reality we have been soaking up the energetic thoughts and beliefs of every one and thing around us. If we are not aware of this and if we do not have people in our lives role modeling this ‘knowing’ then we do not develop the ability to internally ‘know’ and discern what is true for us. Through our unawareness that this is possible we unconsciously program ourselves and send energetic signals out into our individual universes about what is possible all day long. These signals can most certainly be positive and uplifting or negative and self-defeating. No matter what they are, they still go out. The universe is responsive and wants to give us everything we are asking… positive and negative… conscious and unconscious. And then the universe responds to what we are asking by hooking us into those very experiences we are subconsciously deciding in our life.
So, if I am standing at that ally and believing that something bad is going to happen conscious or unconscious, if I walk down the ally… 9 times out of 10 something bad will happen. But if I stand at the ally and take a moment to recognize and become aware that maybe there is something else happening here. Maybe I am subconsciously creating my own fear-based experiences that I am not completely aware right now but could possibly be having. Then, in that moment, we begin to change our reality. We change what we are seeing and thus we change what is showing up for us. So, if I have ‘clean’ intuitive knowing that is unattached to any thoughts or beliefs from when I was younger or in my ancestors or lineage I can stand at the entrance to that dark and deserted ally and begin to see a completely different picture. A new version of reality can show up. Then, I can take a moment to take a breath… feel the energy that is happening within my own body, take the time to shift myself and assess what is truly going on and make a decision based on my intuitive knowing. This is a feminine part of us that knows without explanation that despite the darkness and deserted place we see we know and feel that we must go down that ally anyway. We feel that there is a ‘reason’ for us to go down the ally despite what we initially felt. Because now, we are aware of our subconscious, and now we can tune into ourselves and decide to dispel any unhelpful beliefs. It is in that moment that we bring in our full and powerful awareness. And when we do, we can feel and sense and know that ‘yes’… I need to do this… I need to walk down this ally.
And as we do… the ally begins to light up…it begins to feel more comfortable. It begins to show us that there is another way. In fact, it now becomes a beautiful opening to an existence that we had no idea was possible until we took the first step. When we took the time to consciously experience what was happening within us and then decide, we became empowered. As we repeatedly take steps forward, we see even clearer. We breath more deeply and we begin to trust ourselves and not something outside of us. Then, we come upon something even more magical… we get to find new experiences filled with possibilities that could never have unfolded if we unconsciously did it the old way. We might even find that the reason why we felt so drawn to walking down the alley is because a litter of baby kittens needed our assistance to be rescued from the cold. And in that wonderful surprise we embraced our intuitive knowing always leading us to something grander than we could have ever discovered otherwise. The one who embodies the path of the intuitive knows that there is always another way, knows for no reason, and always follows through with the promptings of the heart. This can only be done by finding the awareness from within that asks us to pause, sense, feel, ask ourselves first, and then we know. This is how we know with intuitive knowing. This is our true power that is certain in the uncertain.
