We were all born with an innate inner wisdom that guides our lives, serves as an inner "truth meter," and enables us to make significant decisions at pivotal junctures in our lives. Some refer to this natural talent as intuition, spiritual direction, or "gut feelings."
Each of us connects to intuition in a distinct manner. Those with artistic or musical talent can invoke their muse for creative inspiration. Those whose work requires a high level of physical or mental endurance can connect with their inner wisdom by overcoming the barriers that typically stand between them and their inner gifts. Some of us may live very busy lives with little time to tune into our inner guidance, but our dreams serve as messengers to convey the vital information we may have missed during our hectic days.
Our intuition is a profound gift that bridges the gap between our embodied physical self and our divine spiritual essence. Through this line of light, the soul can communicate with the embodied self, and we can develop this inner connection through meditation, prayer, and the desire to know ourselves more intimately.
At all times in our lives, but particularly during times of extreme stress or difficulty, our intuition can be of great assistance. When confronted with unanticipated obstacles, such as the death of a loved one or a serious illness, we experience a range of intense emotions. Our habitual supports are removed or shaken, causing us to feel adrift, as if we have nothing to cling to.
Our intuition can serve as a compass, pointing us instinctively toward the assistance we require to overcome the challenges we are facing. When our minds fail us due to a feeling of being overwhelmed, the voice of our inner wisdom speaks clearly and repeats itself as often as required.
If we are accustomed to being in charge of our lives and are suddenly confronted with a situation we cannot handle, we may experience fear and desperation because our typical coping mechanisms are no longer effective. Our embodied human self in the physical world is always connected to our larger spiritual self, so intuition will always work, even in the most dire of circumstances.
In times of difficulty or crisis, spiritual realms activate our spiritual support systems. Our connection with intuition or guidance is strengthened, and the loving spiritual beings who watch over and guide our lives offer additional support.
If we have become accustomed to disregarding our inner wisdom or have simply shut down the intuitive aspects of ourselves through years of neglect, we may feel unable to locate the thread of light that would reconnect us to our source. It is crucial to realize that our divine inner wisdom is always present and accessible to us, regardless of how disconnected we may become from it. Even if we have temporarily erected barriers to block our inner guidance, we can remove them through prayer, meditation, and intention.
If we have been disconnected from ourselves for a very long time, the process of reconnecting will often bring up hidden emotions, thoughts, and memories that we were not prepared to deal with. During this phase of rebalancing, it is beneficial to participate in a regular spiritual or emotional support system that can assist in stabilizing our inner connection to spirit.
Remembering that emotions and memories from the past are resurfacing in order to be healed and released is one of the most difficult aspects of the healing process. A support system can assist us in anchoring in our inner strength, allowing emotions and feelings to pass through us, and releasing them from our body, mind, and spirit.
As this cleansing process occurs, our intuition and inner wisdom are strengthened naturally, as fewer barriers exist between us and our spirit. This deeper inner connection can be a source of wisdom, freedom, empowerment, and comfort during challenging times, and it will sustain us throughout our lives with greater love, joy, and peace. The purpose of inner wisdom is to bless all of life through our connection to the divine, not just our individual lives.
