We Are Meant To Live From Intuition, Not Intellect
What is intuition? Are we ALL meant to be intuitive? Or do just some people have it? And how does intuition differ from intellect? Do we let go of intellect to become intuitive or do they both 'blend' somehow?
Today people will say, "I am intuitive", and they will put their sign out and offer intuitive readings. Which we might call being psychic. And I think some even call that "psychism",
But I believe that intuition is really natural to all of us - a way of living that is intuitive. In fact, I believe we are all meant to live intuitively.
In other words, I believe we are meant to live in timelessness, without the limitation of intellect.
In fact I believe we are all destined to live as intuitives - not necessarily knowing about others, or even knowing our own futures, but instead living very presently.
To live in a way that is much more truly wise, and much more alive and present and satisfying than the usual intellectual mode.
So what does "living timelessness" mean, really? What is the difference between "intuitive" living and "intellectual" living?
To me, intuitive living means you aren't even trying to know the future. Intuitive living means having a quiet mind, and your focus is the present. So you are conscious of your breathing, and you are very aware of your surroundings. You are living very much in the expansiveness of this moment, vibrantly present in this moment.
Its like the present moment is the gateway to heaven or enlightenment or bliss.
Which takes effort! And you have to protect presence! It is a state of presence! You have to make the effort to be conscious of breathing, and to avoid what disturbs you, what takes you out of presence. Because once your emotions get riled up, your mind gets noisy... and then the present is veiled.
Intuition is always here, right now.
In a state of presence, presence is your main focus. You actually HAVE a centre.
So as you can see, this is not some otherworldly state of being, or trippy habit of people who wear a lot of purple. Intuition is more like an effort made by the person who doesn't want to miss anything. Because the present is easily missed. It can be instantly obscured by...
TIME. Because time and mind are the same thing.
Living in Timelessness is the state of intuition. It is not a linear state. You aren't calculating or manipulating. You have surrendered clevernes for intelligence, and getting for enjoying. You are much more interested in this moment, then in getting to another one. Most strikingly, you are not living under the veil of thinking... when you are in a state of intuitive presence.
So you might rightly ask, how do I navigate my life if I'm not thinking? If I"m not using my intellect?
To be sure, intuition does not mean you stop thinking, but it does mean that your mind has quieted down.
So instead of thinking a lot, you are SEEING a lot. And FEELING a lot. So you notice that one choice feels more right, and one choice feels less right. One choice kind of rubs you the wrong way, and one choice 'clicks'. Or your gut or heart goes, "That one".
You are in a state of sensitivity, and therefore a state of empathy.
So it is really caring/love that powers intuitive presence.
Its a state where there is wisdom and awareness, not just desire or fear.
Its a state of spacious being, not a state of contracted suffering.
And yes, you might have already guessed that this is not a super common state in humanity. But it is natural, and it is destiny, and there is more support now for becoming Intuitive than ever before.
More specifically, I mean there is more technology and tools for self-healing then every before - the path to becoming fully, naturally intuitive.
Because the more you heal, the more you intuit, which means reveal, your Self. And you are naturally attracted, to the path and things and people and tools that will assist you in revealing more of your Self.
From time to timeleness.
From thought to presence.
If you make the effort, is it here for you.
Here's the mantra I am using lately:
"Simplified living... meditative... intuitive."
I invite you to step out of time and mind with me, and discover your ability to live without the tyranny of the chattering intellect, to live in peace and presence, as a way to live more wisely, and more simply and happily, as a gift to yourself... but also as a gift to the world.

There is always more to say, especially about something as deep as living intuition. But if you want more, do check out my other blogs. Because almost everything I write about is to help us live intuition. Intuitive living is supported by practices like yoga, meditation, essences, and especially by living simply.
When you live fully intuitively, your life will be magical, synchronistic, awesome.
