Intuition and Your Intelligence
Your most valuable partner is time. Of course, we need time to exist, so time is most essential. The question is what are you doing with your most valuable resource of time?
How are you making the most of your partner time? Its one thing to survive and just exist with time and it is quite another thing to get ahead in life with your time.
For that, that is to succeed in life and make the most with time, you need and have another critically important partner and that partner is your intelligence.
It all really boils down to how you are using your partners of intelligence and time.
And the simple truth is, If you are making better use of your intelligence then you can make better use of your time. Makes sense doesn’t it? Yes, it does.
Now here is a reality check for you.
Is your intelligence evolving? Can you improve your intelligence? Is your intelligence providing you with more opportunities and advantages? If we look at the life condition of most people, then the answer, sadly, is most likely no. Why no, because most people are not doing well, they are not getting ahead in their lives.
Now while time is with you it is also very separate from you. That is to say, you cannot change time, time is set.
This is not true with your intelligence. Intelligence consists of thinking, feeling, and a strange mysterious facility called intuiting.
It is in our nature to want to evolve, to be smart and successful.
And we can evolve, increase our intelligence and become more successful. This is only true if we are use and develop our analytical- deductive reasoning ability, use our emotional intelligence, and discover, develop and use our intuitive intelligence. Why did I include “intuitive intelligence”? I did, because our intuition is a part of our intelligence.
But, intuition is different from our rational cognitive intelligence and different from our emotional intelligence. How so? If you want to think, you can think. If you wish to feel, you can feel. If you want to intuit, you can’t do it. How come?
You can do thoughts and feelings because they are doings. If I want to know what I think about something, I do thinking. It’s simple. Same deal with feelings. If I wish to know how I feel about something, I go ahead and feel. It’s quite easy.
Intuition is not a doing, it is a receiving. This is why intuition seems so hard to do, because it is not a doing, it is a receptive ability. With thinking and feeling you go to them. With intuition it comes to you, but only under the right conditions and techniques. These conditions and techniques are what I refer to as the intuitive keys and triggers.
Therefore, intuition is a completely separate different and unique process. Intuition requires a process of keys and triggers to provide the receiving of intuitive insights.
Intuition is an important part of your intelligence, but has been mostly forgotten, ignored or left undeveloped. Is it worth learning about and developing intuition? Most certainly and here’s why.
Why do we have intuition? What can intuition do for you?
(By the way, every culture that has a written language has a word for intuition. So, while intuition in misunderstood and seemingly inaccessible, intuition is recognized as existing.)
Here is what intuition is for and how it can help you:
- Intuition is an inner directional guide. If allowed, it is within you to let you know ‘what to get” and ‘what to avoid’.
- Intuition can point to the best path to follow.
- Intuition can let you see the ‘big picture’ of something and discovering something new. This means it can provide an overall vision of the thing needed. Intuition is comfortable in leaving the details of how to do something to thoughts and feelings.
- Intuition acts like a shortcut in knowing something faster and more accurately than our thoughts and feeling can tell us. Our intuition can, for example, when entering a new space let us instantly know if it’s a safe environment or a potential threat. And, when meeting a new person, if they can be trusted or not.
- Intuition helps to sort out large and varied amounts of information and distill the information down to the essential, most important and urgent items to consider and act upon.
- Intuition fosters and supports creativity.
- Intuition has the indication of just ‘knowing’ or having the quality of ‘knowingness’. Intuition has a sustained calm confidence about its knowing when confronted with conflicting information or other people’s differing opinions.
“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.” – Albert Einstein
“It is always with excitement that I wake up in the morning wondering what my intuition will toss up to me, like gifts from the sea. I work with it and rely on it. It’s my partner.” – Jonas Salk
(American medical researcher, best known for his discovery and development of the first safe and effective polio vaccine.)
Intuition is indeed worth learning about, discovering and developing.
Blessings and Wishing you a better life with intuition,
