Our acceptance of ideas and concepts dictates what is possible in our world. If we have an open mind about how life works and are not too rigid in our thinking, we allow more possibilities to come into our lives. We recognise that we are not in control of those around us. They have freedom to do as they wish, just like us. We do have to be careful not to interfere in others affairs without their permission. Similarly we have to defend ourselves from those who would like to interfere with us and our property.
If we have a very logical mind and we run our lives based on logic and the rules that logic imposes, we are limiting our life experiences. If we have a more open view of life and take guidance from our intuition and inner nudges, we will have a more interesting and exciting life. By using our intuition and going with the flow of life, every day, every hour, every minute, life will continually present new possibilities to us. We begin to live in the moment. We are open to new things, whether they make logical sense or not.
Watching our thoughts and intuition
We can try this by watching our thoughts and intuition. When we come up against a situation or challenge which requires a new approach, we search for a solution. Usually we get an idea straight away, then we examine the idea and see how it might work. We will often think of other options and ideas as we consider the initial solution. We then make a decision on what makes the most sense or which one we like the best. This is the mental or logical approach to the situation.
To use our intuition we would take the first solution and see how we can implement it, disregarding any other ideas which may seem more logical. This requires a skill in catching the first solution before the mind gets a chance to suggest its logical alternatives. We have to keep control of our mind.
How it works
Here’s how it works. When we come up against a challenge, Soul, our happy creative self, comes up with a solution immediately. It lives in the moment and answers queries instantly. Soul has a higher viewpoint than mind of our lives. It can see how we are in the world and our interaction with other Sols around us. It has a better understanding of all aspects of our lives and offers Its solution on that basis. We still have a choice of using Its solution or one that our mind and logic come up with.
Making the right choice between Soul’s solutions and minds suggestions requires practice. We can try out some of Soul’s solutions on small issues to see how they work out. Over time we will gain more confidence in Its recommendations. It is a gradual process and initially it can be difficult to distinguish between Soul’s and mind’s advice. It just takes practice to catch Soul’s intuitive nudges and overcome mind’s convincing logical arguments.
This doesn’t make logical sense
If we are of the opinion that this approach doesn’t make logical sense and shouldn’t be attempted, we are under the control of our mind. This technique may not be right for us now but the knowledge that we are under mind’s control can be helpful in our development and growth. There will come a time when we realise our mind doesn’t hold all the answers to life and how it works.
If we can get a little more of Soul’s guidance we will have a lot more happiness in our lives.
Wishing you the blessings of Soul’s wisdom.
