This month Nancy has an article in Natural Awakenings Magazine titled: “A Path to True Insight
The path of intuition has an end. Like the runway that allows the airplane to build up enough speed to take flight, intuition speeds perception to a point where we are lifted beyond the limits of the road. There is a point of awareness when the end of intuition is recognized – where intuitive insights have completed their job.
While intuition bridges the analytic world of facts and data with the subjective world of hunches and good guesses, they share a common purpose. Analytics and Intuition are both seeking an answer to a specific problem. The problem, whether involving people, places or things, needs a solution.
The circumstance that made the “end of intuition” clear to me was an unsolvable problem.
The details of the situation are not important but the gist of it was that my husband and I lost all of our material wealth and were so in debt that there was no way it could ever be paid back within our lifetimes. To find a way through this was impossible. There was no solution.
Previous to the onset of the above unbearable problem I had been introduced to the study of Metapsychiatry – a helpful guide to understanding the truth of our being and the purpose of our lives.
With the help of this study, I grew to understand that it was not the “problem” that was in the way. The “problem” exposed the breakdown of all my misconceptions about life. There were a host of thoughts that had conditioned my view of life that I was not even aware of. One by one, each came to the surface of awareness to be confronted and seen clearly for what is was.
This is beyond intuition, as this holy healing process can only occur when the main interest is not in solutions to problems, but in understanding the spiritual nature of who we are.
Who we are has a double-reflecting capacity. We can reflect through our experiences and ambitions what we have learned and absorbed through others. We can also become aware of and reflect the infinite Wholeness of what Is.
Intuition bridges these two reflections and allows glimpses of wisdom, insight and clarity to come into our awareness when our minds are open to it. Most often this is when we confront problems. But, sooner or later the awareness that looks to intuitive insights for solutions to our problems will evolve and turn it’s attention toward full receptivity to what really IS, and to the realization of the spiritual essence of our being.
The Whole is not concerned with problems. The Whole is continually revealing what IS. What already and eternally IS, by definition, is never a problem.
Of course we are grateful for all the insights that have led us to the place where we are no longer contained by the problems of life, but lifted into the infinite expanse where “problems” seem smaller and smaller until they disappear altogether.
