Intuition is Connection

“To see life from the perspective of intuition is to have vision. To see life from the perspective of intuition is to see life from the perspective of wholeness. It is to understand that life is basically one and that we are part of life. While the intellect can only see the details, intuition sees the whole. To see life from the perspective of intuition is like looking at life from the summit of the mountain, whereas seeing life only from the perspective of intellect is like looking at life from the foot of the mountain. Through learning to listen to our intuition, we learn to be in contact with the Whole.” ~ Swami Dhyan Giten

Intuition is that quiet, powerful inner knowing of your truths. Connection is a relationship to a larger whole. By definition, they are the same. That is, intuition is your inner connection to a larger truth, and connection is your intuitive relationship to a bigger picture.

Conversely, when you are not feeling particularly connected, it’s likely you can be easily distracted, un-engaged and even bored with whatever the event, conversation or person you are involved with in the moment. When you are not accessing your intuition, you are likely to experience not only distractions and boredom, but also confusion, a sense of overwhelm and a certain monotony of your own life on a day to day level. If you find yourself in that experience, and you want it to be different, it’s time to view your inner and outer connections.

Universal laws show us that the outer connections are really only a symptom of our inner connections. That is, our world is a reflection of what’s happening inside us. Our satisfaction with our relationships, opportunities, finances, home, etc. have a direct correlation to how we are feeling about them, focusing on them and working with our intuition in creating them.

So the most important inner connection we can have is the one with ourselves through our intuition. Remember, intuition is a quiet inner voice – it won’t shout to be heard, judge your choices or stop your free will in acting in the physical world. Intuition is what’s waiting and always accessible to help you handle your world.

So, how do we know we’re connecting with our intuition? Look around yourself right now. See what’s happening in your world – this may take courage – but really look at what you’ve created in your body, significant other, friends, home, and beyond. If you like what you see, you are working with your intuition. And if not, it’s time to introduce yourself to, and connect with, your inner guide.
