The Power of Intuition in Our Work & Lives
Your Intuition Is Knocking – Can You Hear It?
Are you attending to what's going on outside of you or what's going on inside of you?
If we are always attending to or tuning in to what is going on outside of ourselves or the information coming in, we potentially cut ourselves off from what wants to come through, from the deeper, more wholistic truth within.
We can meet life's challenges and our hopes and dreams with a limited version of what's possible, or we can awaken to something more significant – to a potential and resourcefulness that is full of new possibilities, creativity, and expansive alternatives.
We can make use of a purely rational and logical mind or a mind that is connected to a powerful deeper intelligence.
When I thought the best course for the big and important decisions was to “figure it out,” I leaned heavily on my thinking mind. I would ruminate, analyze, think and then think some more. When I thought my intellect was the source of insight and transformation, I did my best to think things through. I leaned heavily on what my thinking was telling me.
In her book, The Awakened Brain, Dr. Lisa Miller shares current research that proves the human brain is wired for awareness, for awakening. When cultivated, our minds can access more awakened awareness, “We make use of different parts of our brain, and we literally see more integrating information from multiple sources of perception.”
We literally have more options available to us when we factor in and listen to the deeper intelligence within – when we listen beyond our thinking. When we allow the grip of our thoughts to lesson and our minds to relax, we are more open to creative leaps in our work.

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant.” – Albert Einstein
