Intuition is More Powerful Than Intellect

Steve Jobs said, “Intuition is more powerful than intellect”

“We don’t have to reject scientific logic in order to benefit from instinct,” says Cholle. “We can honor and call upon all of these tools, and we can seek balance. And by seeking this balance we will finally bring all of the resources of our brain into action.”

Here is the article.

We Just Do Things Differently

The Ten Things Intuitive People Do Differently (Or the things that I do and have done for years)

  • They listen to their inner voice
  • They take time for solitude
  • They create
  • They practice mindfulness
  • They observe everything
  • They listen to their bodies
  • They connect deeply with others
  • They pay attention to their dreams
  • They enjoy plenty of down time
  • They mindfully let go of negative emotions

The Science of Intuition

“We thrive in a culture that believes rationality and prevailing scientifically proven logic rules over the knee jerk reaction to pull out of the parking lot or investigate a partner’s alibi. There are just certain feelings humans obligatorily follow without concrete reasoning.”-Samantha Olson  

Here is the article.  It’s short.

Intuition is Far More Than You Realize

Our subconscious mind is formed predominantly by our mothers in utero and then the environment of family and friends until we’re about seven.  We have no personal control over this nor can we change it as we become adults!  Do you know what your mother was going through or how she felt while you were in her?  This is where the rubber meets the road folks and you’d do well to ponder it or at least find out if you can talk to her.

On the flip side, the word intuition is based on the word “intuition” or “consideration,” formed by a collection of beliefs, experiences, and memories. The intuitive system is more hardwired into the human species than commonly understood. It is the automatic, mindless thought process that doesn’t require analysis or deep thinking.”

I agree with everything Samantha says here except the last sentence.  I pushed my mother’s voice and family voice to the back of my mind starting when I was nineteen, so I’ve been forming and living from my conscious mind for thirty-five years.  The conscious mind is called the “new brain”.  I’m now fifty-four so I’m used to living on the leading edge.  The intuition is not mindless.  I think the instinct is mindless, which is our ancient, animal instinct.  Real intuition comes from the conscious mind.  Instinct comes from 300,000 years of programming from the environment of our subconscious mind.  We’ve survived, so it has served us well.

 “When humans are forced or denied certain feelings during their prime stages of mental, physical, and above all emotional growth, guts can be faulty.”

This one really does rely on thinking back on your mother, her personality, how open she was, how free you were to express yourself.  My sisters and I were very free to express ourselves but my mother was almost always unhappy so none of us have a very solid sense of emotional security.  What is your memory?  It can help you unravel your relationship patterns to remember.  I was not denied any of my feelings in my very early stages. For that I’m grateful. The extreme restriction from my mother hit when I became a teenager and I don’t know why.  At that point, she absolutely tried to live her identity through me.  It’s only abated a little bit now that I’m in my fifties.  I believe many mothers and parents do this to their children.  I discuss it in my new book “Healer” which you can find in the menu on my home page.  There is no rhetoric in my writing. You may find it refreshing.

“Women, on the other hand, may have a stronger ability to make a successful intuitive decision because of their exceptional skills in reading other humans. Female ancestors needed to evaluate a situation quickly in order to tune in to their infant and their environment for protection and survival. Their brains were trained with peak awareness because they were protecting a heart outside of their own bodies. Female brains, therefore, evolved to have a larger composition and ability to organize chunks of environmental information at a time, giving them an edge to read people. So ladies, trust your gut.” 

There is this, right?  Women’s intuition, especially regarding the body really does rival males.  It’s an evolutionary development.  I believe men can be encouraged to be empowered in their body awareness though too as we move into the conscious mind, or the “new brain”.

We are in new territory in this cultural paradigm shift, using a new part of our brain that we have not used previously.  The archetypes from the Tzolkin Cosmology, The Tarot, Jungian, our larger media culture (TV and movies), and Nature will all be morphing as we form a new way of relating to each other.  I’ll keep my eye on it right here.

Moving from Subconscious to Conscious Mind

Please read this short article.

From the Old Brain to The New Brain

Some of the scientists who study the brain (neuroscientists, behavioral psychologists, etc.) believe the vagus nerve or spindle neurons that connect the prefrontal cortex (new brain) to the insula (old brain) may be the communication superhighway that links the conscious (new brain) to the subconscious (old brain). The subconscious brain may be using this very super highway to communicate intuition, gut feelings and insight (aha moments) to the conscious brain.”-Thomas C. Corley

The latest neuroscience is investigating and talking about the “new brain” or the “conscious brain”. Humanity has been sitting in and using the subconscious mind for most of our existence (1 million years). The subconscious mind comes from parents, family, town, local provincial environment.  It has totally helped us survive in a tribal world that expects certain behaviors. All of our institutions have grown up around it. It’s a sponge, defines our local reality, and is subjective. There is nothing objective or conscious about the subconscious mind!  It pretty much defines brainwashing and most people’s reality on earth!  But in the case of the evolving brain, that’s a good thing.  You have to understand and be able to get on with the locals to survive. Consciousness doesn’t happen overnight. 

But, as we can see by how pluralistic and expressive all people the world over are becoming and boundaries morphing, we see symptoms of humanity moving into the new brain or the conscious mind.  It is just now occurring. Technology linking everyone is sort of the “leg up” here.  We are starting to have unity of mind.  That will morph too as our reality moves into the conscious mind and we express ourselves as individuals who are inter-dependent.

Many that have been working in the holistic, spirituality, or paradigm shift movement have predicted this change since the 1970’s, and have been experiencing events that are indicative of moving INTUITION in particular from the subconscious mind to living and manifesting in the conscious mind. The hippies started it. Most of my adult life (35 years from ages 20-54) has been defined by using my intuition IN my conscious mind and pushing my subconscious mind to the background.  That is not usual but that’s what I did. The proof is in my new book “Healer”.  There is no way I would have been able to overstep subconsciously created, “reality based” events that were foisted on me if I was not residing in my conscious mind.  The Universe had my back and I was cared for.

While it may be true that all thoughts originate in the provincial subconscious mind, those of us that have not accepted our upbringing as the totality of reality, didn’t like or agree with our upbringing, or felt our upbringing fell far short of real love, want to move quickly into our conscious brain, or “new brain” because we’re happier and feel more in charge of setting our destiny.  

Intuition “up”

 

Ph.D Work at Yale Validating Intuition

Joy Hirsch, Ph.D. neuroscientist at Yale University has scientifically studied intuition.

“…scientists who study the phenomenon say it’s a very real ability that can be identified in lab experiments and visualized on brain scans. Read the article below to verify findings regarding your gut feelings, plus surprising ways to tune in to your body’s signals and tap the inner powers of your mind.”

And please check your gender bias at the door just because it’s a female Ph.D.

Here is the article;  Science backing intuition

Here is another one that is a little more white coat, cold hard laboratory stuff that some people think is transcendent.  Here is the “Significance”;

Significance

The role of intuition versus deliberation in human cooperation has received widespread attention from experimentalists across the behavioral sciences in recent years. Yet a formal theoretical framework for addressing this question has been absent. Here, we introduce an evolutionary game-theoretic model of dual-process agents playing prisoner’s dilemma games. We find that, across many types of environments, evolution only ever favors agents who (i) always intuitively defect, or (ii) are intuitively predisposed to cooperate but who, when deliberating, switch to defection if it is in their self-interest to do so. Our model offers a clear explanation for why we should expect deliberation to promote selfishness rather than cooperation and unifies apparently contradictory empirical results regarding intuition and cooperation.

Here is the abstract.

Intuition Up

Since 1990, I’ve been using Mayan Cosmology to give me a sense of how the energies impacting the earth are affecting our minds. Millions of people all over the world use it as well, especially in South America. I’m sure readers realize that every day has a different feel to it, that change is constantly happening and we are not robots going through every day in the same way. This fact has essentially defined human history for one million years. Change is inherent.

One thing is sure; humans like security in a very evolutionary, unstable world. If we can at least know partially what’s coming, maybe we can prepare. Mayan Cosmology helps with that! Like any subject worth its salt, it combines intuition and science to be as accurate as possible. Together, both of those are a powerhouse. Alone, neither science or intuition will give you an accurate picture. I’m fairly sure every scientist would agree with me. Einstein, Tesla, and Jung all praised the intuition for aiding them in their greatest discoveries. A wise scientist, if that’s not too oxymoronic, will do the same.

But up until now, we couldn’t understand why things were changing the way they were and how humans were part of the flow of complicated natural events on earth. We are starting to now, thanks to scientific and psychological advancements that are helping us understand the Mind, earth cycles, and Consciousness. Mayan Cosmology is the organizer and generator of much of that. It’s even believed that The Mayan Harmonic generates our DNA from the galactic core. This has been proven by empirical studies over long stretches of time.

It’s apparent that this matrix, discovered in Mesoamerica and part of the Mayan culture, is deeply and intricately aligned with the earth’s cycles and human families. I’ve followed it for twenty-six years and the synchronicities are consistent and profound. I have examples and hope to create a database at some point.

Dissolving

Dissolve people from my space that do not take care of themselves. I’m not your healer. I’m healing myself from victims and off-loaders. You heal yourself, I don’t heal you. That’s not my head trip, that’s yours.

Dissolve people from my space that think I should be on a saint pedestal just because I have integrity and do good in the world. I’m just a human being that refuses to tolerate certain energy just like everyone else. I’m SO happy to disappoint them when they compete with me when there is nothing to compete with. Everyone is different. Don’t compete with me. Read my book, then compete with the death and suffering that I never hold onto and know how to release. Dare you! No pity. That’s ego too. Compassion is all that’s called for; for me and yourself.

Dissolve people from my space that expect me to lead them into the light and refuse to do it for themselves. I’m not God nor do I want to be. Walk into your own light after I show you how!

Dissolve people from my space that say they care and then try to put me under their boot when they don’t know what they’re talking about.

Dissolve relationship with family members that don’t know how to let go of negative emotion and want me to be as dependent as they are. No. I don’t need to be.

Dissolve ties to people who walk late into a meeting they set up with me and immediately say, even before we begin, that they want nothing to do with me ever again after this meeting. REALLY!? Grow up. There is not going to be a meeting because you want to dominate, not discourse. I don’t work with people who want to dominate. I work with people who respect me enough to be my equal.

You want your power back?…I just handed it back to you because you erroneously gave it OVER to me when I never fucking asked for it!

Dissolve those who are always up to something, say they support you, then they vampire energy from you because they don’t take care of themselves.dissolving

Done. Dissolved. Happy to be just human. Happy to never, ever, ever want anyone to put me on a fucking pedestal just so they can try to knock me off to prove something to themselves.

You’re jealous of my strength and achievement? Then be jealous of the death, loss, vampiric sucking, hate, and jealous family to whom I courageously flip the bird to in order to get to this point. I know I deserve to be happy and abundant and not be surrounded by people that want to either worship me or destroy me for their selfish ego purposes.

Go away.

I’m just a human being with friends doing the work I love.

How the Light Changes

Once the sun comes up, the sun in my eyes charges my brain like a battery.

The position of the shadows on the wall meanders aimlessly to new places like a squirrel trying to find a home for his peanut.

The refraction off of the green leaves will meet its demise when the colors change and drop like so many ancestors on our family tree. Into the ground, they go.

We’re all soiled phantoms, you know.

One day full of light and life, and soon, the Earth reclaims us.

Do you know there hasn’t been one, single human body to escape this transformation?

What happens to our light and life, like that green leaf?

The light changes.

A Segment From “Healer”

woman on pier

Shortly before I finished writing this book, I had a dream and intuition about my sister’s health, so when my mom called and told me what was going on, I was not surprised. After talking to her on the phone, I had a vision that applied to my sister’s situation and anyone going through recovery from addiction.

Our subconscious mind that was imprinted on us from ages zero to six, predominantly by our mother in utero, but also our father if he was present, is our home on the shore (or woods), figuratively speaking. Year by year we build a pier, plank by plank, that we can walk out onto into the lake that is our conscious mind, aware of diversity amidst the unity that is the greater world, people, natural life, the planet, and the expanding universe.

If as the years’ progress, we let our planks rot with body abuse, guilt, grief, fear, blame, violence, war, negativity, and enmeshment, we are still supposed to have a safe, grounded shore to go to–the subconscious mind where we hail from which is our home and birth family.

The secure subconscious is what gives us the courage to leave the shore in our boat and go out and expand our conscious mind.  In that way we learn that people are just different, even if we don’t understand them.  There are still universal traits among all humans that unify our one human race among the various cultures.

Activating the 12 Chakra System

I work with the immaterial energy centers of the body all the time in my office while I’m doing Reiki.  My patients can feel it because I’m working with Qi or Ki. In addition, my pendulum can pick up the direction of their spin very easily but I don’t use it much anymore.  My hands can feel it.  I only use it when a patient needs to see how their energy is affecting something they can see; the pendulum.

the-12-chakra-system2

Chakra means “wheel”.  Most people are used to working with the 7 chakras, but in this time of increased spiritual growth and ascension, it is important to work with the 12 chakras.  That said, only do it when you’re ready, especially if you’re just now becoming aware of your qi and the chakras.

12-Stellar Gateway chakra-Accessed in deep meditation or even in the dream state at night when you’re out of the body yet still tethered.

11-Soul Star-The Soul Star Chakra is located about six inches above the crown chakra (top of the head) & is the bridge from the human to the spiritual realms. …

10-Causal-The causal body is the layer of energy beyond the higher mental body and is linked to the throat chakra and the causal chakra at the back of the head. This is the doorway to higher consciousness and links the personality to the collective consciousness of the planet.

9-Crown Chakra-This is where we learn, on a spiritual level, to love unconditionally, allow compassion for our fellow soul’s who we realize are on their own path, just like us. It’s also where we open up to lessons directly given from spirit guides and what opens wider when we seek an adventure.

8-Third eye chakra or clairvoyant seeing.  This one spins constantly for me as I live by my intuition first and then I run it through the filter of my rational mind.  It’s psychic vision or a sense of what you are creating going forward for yourself.

7-Throat chakra-how you express yourself.  Whether speaking, writing, playing, crafting, painting…you are speaking in your voice that is unique to you.  For people that feel they must hold their tongue or were taught to guard their cards closely, this will be very low functioning.  There is a good middle ground here.

6-Heart Chakra-who and what you love lives here.

5-Solar Plexus-Your power chakra.  How you express your strength, what you’re good at in the world or not who you are to the outside world, confidence level.

4-Naval chakra.  This is the Dan Tien and is the center of your body.  Your birth qi is seeded here by your mother, who also formed your subconscious mind.  This is very personal and sometimes we need to talk deeply about this.

3-Sacral chakra-personal feelings.  Relates to all reproductive and digestive issues.

2-Root chakra-Your grounding, sense of connection and security in the body related to sex, reproduction, money, ability to walk, willingness to walk, desire to run, relaxation and movement of the feet, hip, knee, ankle, and feet will be directly affected by your attitudes, values, feelings and actions with regard to all of these issues. Security, territory, property, what propels you to stay in the body and keep interacting on Earth in this unique manner.  The ten chakras above it are what energize you with “your agenda”.  Everyone is walking the Earth for different reasons.  The soles of your feet bring in the energy directly from the Earth like a two-pronged plug plugged into an electrical outlet.  Be sure you’re plugged into the Earth.

1-Earth Star.  The condition of your earth star will tell a practitioner whether you’re plugged in the body or compromised.

Chakra healing is now a widely known method of energy healing, and although most people are familiar with the 7 chakra system, there are in fact many chakras.  The higher ones are transpersonal.

It’s important to work with your Reiki practitioner closely to activate and balance both front aspect and rear aspect chakras.

Peace!

 

The Paperback of “Healer” is Printed and Available for Sale on Amazon along with the Kindle E-book.

Healers heal themselves, they don’t heal others. We can share our work with others though so they can be about taking care of themselves also. Healers are authentic, living examples of how you can step out of your subconscious imprinting from parents, family, and provincial upbringing to create your conscious mind and live a truly free life of your choosing. We also know how to access the information in our unconscious mind through the dream state. The unconscious mind transcends intellect, brings forward intuition and allows it to MANIFEST in physical! The information in the dream state, where there is no thinking, is available to everyone.
