Conscious giving is to give from an intuitive space. This occurs when we ‘tune out’ of our thinking mind, and ‘tune in’ to our Heart. From here we experience more of a ‘knowing’ of what, and how, to give. Living from our intuition is utilising a different operating system to that of the thinking mind. It takes a little practice, but we all have the ability to connect with our intuition.
Could thinking be over-rated?
We have been taught that thinking is normal, but we are not taught that thinking puts a huge amount of stress on the nervous system. It takes a large amount of energy to think. We have been led to believe that to be great, or successful, we have to think …a lot. However, even Einstein knew that his greatest discoveries came not from his thinking mind but from an inner ‘prompt’.
In today’s driven society, and with the internet providing a continual stream of information, the mind is typically ‘overloaded’. The Mayans talked about man’s heavy reliance on the thinking mind to solve problems. They noted that through this particular time, people may go ‘crazy’ from too much thinking. The Mayan folk pointed out the necessity of returning to our intuitive abilities as a means of guidance.
What stands in the way of clear intuitive guidance?
Generally speaking, the mind controls the majority of our decision making through a series of thought processes. These thought processes include judgement, comparisons and ideas, all of which (usually) lead to a decision. The average adult thinks an enormous 90,000 – 120,000 thoughts a day. That’s a lot of energy consumption or more to the point, stress.
Surprisingly, even amid so many thoughts, our intuition can still reveal itself, sometimes just enough to be ‘heard’. Have you ever been in a situation where an accident nearly happened but you had an impulse to ‘move’? That was your intuition. The thinking mind had no idea of the imminent disaster, because it was too busy thinking!
The intuition is always with us, but do we listen?
The intuition is like an inner voice or guide, but where it distinctly differs from the thinking mind, is in the area of ‘all knowing’. The mind can accumulate lots of facts, opinions and conclusions, but it cannot possibly ‘know’ the many variants within the seen and unseen world. But our intuition does.
The intuition never lies. If not going to the party is more beneficial for everyone, then that is what our intuition will prompt us to do.
The intuition is always present. We cannot say, “I will intuitively feel like doing this tomorrow”, that would be the mind. Using the intuition to guide our decision making adds no stress to the nervous system primarily because our intuition is NOW. It has no need for collecting data from the memory banks or mulling over belief systems, facts or ideas. The intuition simply ‘knows now’.
Honing the intuition primarily involves the awareness.
A good practice for utilising the intuition is to allow ourselves, whenever we remember, to gently direct our awareness inward. Simply rest the awareness within and notice what happens. Shifting the awareness is a natural ability that we all have, and it requires no effort. If I say to be aware of your nose, your attention will naturally go there. This is an easy practice which may help us discern whether we are ‘thinking’ our way to a decision or ‘knowing’ our way.
