The Subtle Psychology and ‘How’ of Intuition | EP#40 | Stay Real With Amber | Amber Hawken | MINDFULNESS COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY
Worthlessness is only an imagined lack of the mind. Intuition is said to be the voice of the soul, and the soul is an essence that is unfu*kwithable.
So the story goes, when we ignore our intuition we progressively create, receive or experience events that, well let us know we are being ignorant dicks. And these messages get incrementally more aggressive the longer we ignore it.
First the feather, then the brick then the truck.
Majority of us are trained liked soldiers, to only honour our minds. And rightly we should. However, there stands to remain a genius we tend to swat like a meaningless fly; intuition.
The masculine part of us stands so strong and stubborn in what we ‘know’, that intuition is often disregarded as ‘silly’. The mind seeks and is effectively addicted to rational answers’s it can analyse; something it can calculate, has evidence, predictability, statistics and is measurable. It’s performing it’s job perfectly by doing this. However, relying only on thought is as wise as waiting for a car to drive itself. You can pop that Tesla into autopilot but it can only do as much as it’s programmed to do. It has no innate opinion.
Your intuition doesn’t give a fuck about how much you earn, how many people love you or what your boyfriends twelve pack looks like. It cares if you are happy and fulfilled and will always guide you accordingly. Unfortunately, a fuck ton of conditioning has swayed our minds to disregard spiritual fulfillment and authenticity in place for shiny objects and short term gratification. Alas, it creates a life of suffering and ever intensifying dissatisfaction that the consumer market banks on. Our fears and emptiness is bought and sold at our fingers tips 24/7.
Fulfillment blossoms from taking actions on what is authentically meaningful to you.
We are so fucking afraid to be still with ourselves incase we discover we are not the lie we have been living. The perfect avatar to slip into society as a valued member. Most people walk around feeling like a fraud or a so swayed with narcissism they compensate with overconfidence and believe their own web of self righteous lies.
Unfortunately this inauthenticity is a shallow and empty road. Potentially full of things, but lacking depth and love. Sucks right. We’ve almost likely been here at some point or another, don’t flip out too much, just start doing something about it now.
Intuition is what can guide you back to a genuine space of unconditional love, presence and certainty from a place deep within you, through, and beyond our noggins. Your fat wallet or G cup might boost your ego enough to have you feel superior and walk through crowds. But the feeling of superiority is a far meeker substitution for courage fuelled through authenticity and it is sure to fade and crumble.
Have the courage, the discipline and the intelligence to know that sitting still and cultivating this internal GPS is not only going to give you the confidence to be you, it will guide you to a life of more success and fulfillment than your tiny little mind (in comparison) can comprehend.
In this episode I give you two clear action steps (after a little passionate babble) about being able to listen and action your intuition.
