Lesson 9 - New Spiritual Horizons

Your Intuition

 Lesson 9

Making Decisions

Balance the head and heart.

A person may have good ideas but may also have feelings of fear and doubt that could keep them from moving ahead in life.  They may want to do things well and be successful, but they also procrastinate because of indecision.  That person spins their wheels and goes nowhere because they are not sure of their direction and how to get there.

It is vital to seek for balance between head and heart, the intellect and the feeling.  If you follow only your analytical, dissecting self, you will have difficulty in accomplishing your goals.  You need to have balance so you can move with decisiveness and feeling.

Basically, the function of your intellect is to be of service to your feelings, or the real you. It is a tool, like a wrench or a screwdriver that is there as a means to help you do what you came to do. Your intellect does not make decisions; your feelings do. Your intellect merely implements the decisions of your feelings.

Your intellect is the communicator for your feelings. It does not initiate the communication, but is the channel through which the message from your feelings is passed on to the outside world. Your intellect wants the message of the real you to describe the feelings in the best way possible.

You base your decisions on your feeling part. Your intellect assists your feeling part by gathering information and presenting it to your feelings.

Next time you have to make a decision, try this?

  1. Before making a decision, recheck if you know all the facts.

  2. Review all sides of the question. See what would happen whichever way you decide.

  3. Now your intellect can implement the decision of your feelings.

  4. Whatever feels best to you is probably the best choice for you at that time.

  5. Check if your guidance can back your decision.

Intuition

A pivot point for your purpose.

Your gift of Intuition is the part of you that is a natural-born leader. It is very direct and forceful and enjoys leading you to accomplishment. Your spiritual gift of Intuition is a mover. It is high in self-respect, always looking at the practical side of things and wanting what is best for you.

Your intuitive part is your pivot point for doing what you came here to do and for discerning when you are going off on a tangent. It is the part of you that refuses to let anything get in the way of your success.

As a child, a person high in this gift cherishes their free will and sometimes rebels if told what to do. If intuitive types don’t get their way, they can become stubborn. People high in Intuition usually excel in things. They are organized in a practical way, and they have keen minds.

They don’t seem to care about popularity, as they are too busy accomplishing. They don’t strive for acceptance but somehow they always seem to get it.

Even as children, their intuitive leadership qualities are apparent. People just seem to accept them and respect them as being the leader in everything they do.

An Intuitive-type will respect everyone because of their strong sense of fairness. If they are out-of-balance, however, or if they feel they have been infringed upon, they can use their abilities to push others around. They can become hostile and aggressive, sometimes humiliating people in order to control them.

To an intuitive, the quality of their work and the satisfaction they feel from it are more important than prestige or material gain.

Your intuitive part has a deep concern for people and desires to be of service. Often you will find intuitives in occupations such as social work, legal work, or anything that will help them between understand themselves and other people.

“What others say of me matters little, what I myself say and do matters much.”

Elbert Hubbard

You and Your Environment

We each have free will.

You are continuously changing and evolving into a higher state of organization, growth and development.  Underlying all of these various states of development and evolution, there is the intangible reality called spirit.  This is what makes each of us unique.  We all look different, our fingerprints are different and each of us creates for ourselves a life that is unique.  We each have our own free will to make our own decisions.

You have created for yourself an environment that is unique.  Your surroundings are a portrait of your inner self.  Is your environment attractive, clean and organized?  Is it easy to work in?  Is there sufficient living space?

You may be living in a disorganized environment where your personal possessions are continually in a state of disarray.  Or you may be a compulsively neat person where everything must always be in its place.

Ask Yourself: Are there any area’s in life you can become more organized?

Boundaries

Respect ourselves and one another.

As a soul you are one with all things and have no limiting boundaries.  Throughout time, religion was created out of man’s need to return to that feeling and share it with others.  This is why true Christianity, like all great religions, is a way of life and not a way of worship.

When the real you (the life force or beingness) is in balance with your intellectual part, there is an inner joy in your life.  There is an inner harmony and your life flows smoothly in a unique rhythm.  Your uniqueness stems from this inner marriage of your two united inner energies.  You are united with yourself and moving in rhythm toward what you came to accomplish. 

The rules and regulations of society are based on this inner respect and direction.  These man made rules and regulations are created so that we can respect ourselves and one another at our different levels of unfoldment.

Another way of saying this is by saying that our boundaries begin and end within ourselves and within our state of awareness of who we are.  How much we have put together for ourselves and what we do to get where we are going is of vital importance.  We have the spiritual right to grow at our own pace. 

We need to respect this right and not impose on others or let others impose on us.  These laws of the land are a means to help us find ourselves and keep the big picture of why we are here on planet earth.  Through understanding and clarification of our wants and needs we can be a part of these rules and regulations without being controlled by them. 

The balance between the real you and your intellect, and the discovery of your boundaries, started to take place in your third cycle of life, between the ages of fourteen and twenty-one.  The importance of this cycle lies the process that takes place in this evaluation. 

Your feeling nature was molded during your first seven years by the environment you chose to come into.  Your intellect was developed between the ages of seven to fourteen.  From fourteen or twenty-one you were involved in the search to understand who you really were.  You were seeking to be independent and starting to make your own decisions.  In this process you may have rebelled against some of your boundaries and the teachings of your home, school or church, or society.

There is nothing wrong with this.  Actually, some rebellion is healthy.  It expresses the inner desire to be willing to go beyond theories and to learn through experience.  Depending on the degree of understanding, love and support that was given to you at that time, this search could have been a rewarding adventure or a somewhat traumatic experience.

It is our intuitive part that readily grasps the whole perspective and doesn’t tend to be concerned with superficial details.  The intuitive “is more original than conventional….they are good organizers and are able to lead people successfully, for they know how to keep their energy compact and channeled.”
