Love Serve Meditate Realize

Tuesday, Aug 03, 2010 Intuition

Our Gathering on Thursday night was a great example of Spirit moving through us in a fashion unpredictable and yet so familiar. What better subject to reinforce our Oneness with Source than the ability to honor the ever-present voice within us that shows up over and over as “intuition” and the critical importance of paying heed to this guidance immediately, obeying the call. From the examples shared, it became obvious that all of us require the doubling of our efforts to hear, absorb and take action, trusting that the guidance being given to us is authentically Divine.

The Yogananda’s perspective:

“Intuition is that faculty of the soul which at once directly perceives the truth about anything. Without the power of intuition, you cannot know the Truth. Intuition means “soul-perception”, and is the knowing power of the soul, without the help of the senses or the mind. Intuition can give you knowledge about things that your senses and understanding can never give.

“Many books and courses of study are prescribed for students in school, but nothing is taught about concentration and the development of the sixth sense, the all-knowing faculty of intuition. Many people make mistakes in everything, from health and business to philosophy and religion. Thousands of people make wrong investment and take wrong paths because their minds are not scientifically guided by intuition.”

Please be mindful as you move along your path to pay close attention to your intuition and the hidden opportunities in each moment. Stay present and don’t miss a thing!

Here is the meditation chant that we shared, in case you would like to continue its use:
