The Sixth Sense
Thirteenth Step Towards Riches
Intuition, or the sixth sense-we all have it. Those 'little voices', inspirations, hunches, gut feelings, or any other name you may call it. Some people may have a sense of knowing or they may feel like they are being guided. However you describe it, it is our ability to know something without proof. It is our link to Infinite Intelligence, our Creative Imagination.
Without getting into too much detail, there was one time where if I had listened to my little voice, I could have spared myself 2 years without the use of my car. That voice, by the way, was screaming “NO” to me, but I pushed it down and consequently had to rely on friends and neighbors to cart me around town until I was able to purchase another car. (On a side note: try a little experiment-try going a week without driving your car-it's not easy. Didn't have bus service where I lived, either.)
After that incident, being aware of and listening to my inner voice became a lot easier.
I have heard it said that when we pray, we are talking to God. When we meditate we are open and receptive to messages. The author and international speaker, Mary Morrissey described how Thomas Edison would sit in his rocking chair and enter into what he called, the “Land of the Solution”, that place where he'd pose a question to the Infinite. This is the place he would enter to listen to that “still, small voice” of guidance. He knew that there was an answer to every question and a solution to every problem.
There are many ways to get into touch with your inner voice. Not everyone knows, or they may think that they don't know how to meditate, but you can get in touch with your sixth sense/intuition with some practice. Start by standing in the shower or while you are on a walk; somewhere where it's quite. It may take awhile before you can turn down the chatter in your mind in order to hear your small voice, but start meditating even if it's only for a minute or two. It will get easier.
However you get in touch with your inner voice, when you do hear or feel something don't ignore it or what it is saying to you. If you are having some challenges, hit 'pause' before you react, get into your place and listen for messages.
I want to thank everyone for being in Mentoring for Free and sharing their insights, examples, and wisdom.
