Gaining Intuitive Insights
By Owen Waters
It's a little-known secret that, during the first two hours of sleep at night, people reconnect with their soul consciousness. The spirit realms are where most dreams occur throughout the night. The soul realms are beyond this. To reach soul consciousness, your awareness moves up through the spirit realms and, upon reaching the deepest sleep state, reconnects with your innermost state of beingness.
During that time of reconnection with the core of your essence, you review the latest events in your life and plan what would be best for your next moves. You won't consciously remember the experience when you return to your sleeping physical body, but your soul awareness is always there in the background, ready to be accessed at any time by conscious intent.
Accessing the wisdom of your soul awareness takes only a moment. Just stop what you are doing, turn your attention within and see what your intuitive impressions are concerning the issue at hand. When you slow down for a moment to tune into the subtle and quiet whisperings of your soul, then you have true wisdom at your disposal in the world of daily living.
The advice to "sleep on it" when faced with a big decision now takes on a whole new meaning. Knowing that you will mull this decision over at a soul level at night, you can appreciate that, the next day, your feelings on which course of action to take will be inspired by the wisdom of your soul.
At a soul level, you have access to a much wider perspective of reality. For a start, you can project any decision into the future and see, in lifelike reality, exactly how that decision will work out. That process certainly beats guessing at such outcomes. In a soul-level projection of the future, you see all the threads of interactions with other people and how everything will turn out based upon current trends. This wisdom is then available to your waking state via the power of intuition.
Personally, when it comes to an important decision, I insist on having three nights of "sleeping on it" before I will agree to give an answer as to whether I will go ahead. Doing this means never again having to say, "It seemed like a good idea at the time!"
Sometimes, you are faced with a situation that has just come up and you could use some insight as to what the real situation is. You may be on the spot and not be able to retreat into a quiet location for a good meditation. In that case, just polling your sense of intuition for inside information can be enough to bring up insights that help you handle the situation in the best way possible.
After a soul contact session, you'll either find yourself thinking, "Wow, why didn't I think of that earlier?" or you may find yourself feeling stuck. If that is the case, let the problem go for now and entrust your soul awareness to research and find the best solution. Ask for insights to pop up into your awareness at any time, detach by releasing the topic to your soul, and go about other activities. It won't be long before some very helpful thoughts arise as if out of nowhere.
First Impressions Are Intuitive
Whenever you step firmly into heart-centered consciousness, your awareness immediately becomes more connected to your inner source of intuition. Through intuition, you become aware of information about people, places and events that springs from the essence of those people, places and events. This information is not delivered through the outside senses, although it may unfold within you at the same time that you receive sensory information.
While visual information relates only to the sense of sight, intuitive information includes much more. It includes all sensory information – sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste - and, in addition to that, the thoughts, feelings and memories that are relevant to the situation.
First impressions are more than just visual. They are intuitive as well. When you are about to meet a person for the first time and you are approaching them, you will receive a visual impression and your consciousness will also receive impressions about the nature of their consciousness, such as their true emotional state. That intuitive stream of information will come into your awareness alongside the visual stream and, if you are aware that it exists, you can add the intuitive information to your conscious impression of the person.
Everyone receives this intuitive information stream unconsciously, but, for it to arrive in your conscious mind, you have to:
- Be aware that it exists.
- Be open to receiving it.
The more you practice having an openness to intuitive information, the more this will develop.
Most people are not aware of their mental and emotional transmissions. In a crowd of people, these transmissions add together and there is as much mental noise as there is physical noise. As you become more in tune with your inner senses, you will find that, on some occasions, it's better not to access your intuitive information for a time, just to give yourself some peace from the volume of mental noise.
At night, when you travel out-of-body in the spirit realms, communication is different than when you are awake in your physical body. The natural method of communication in your spirit body is to exchange information with others via thought. In the spirit world, people naturally know when to open for a communication and when to close down their thought transmissions again. There, you sense when a person 'opens' to you and sends a mental greeting, or when they are 'closed' and not offering any communication.
In daily life, first impressions are intuitive as well as visual. The reception of such information is automatic, but the conscious mind misses this information feed when it is focused entirely upon the external world.
Be more aware of your own intuitive information. Be open to it. Then, it will flow right into your conscious mind along with the visual information that your conscious mind is receiving. The power of intuition works to give you all the insights and inside information that you need to make a great success out of everything you seek to achieve.
