At times we just know something without any practical evidence. It is knowledge we have that is independent of reason. We simply know. Sometimes we “know” the outcome of a situation — an impending accident (good or bad), or when a phone is going to ring. Sometimes we even know who is calling.
Where this knowledge comes from is not as important as what we do with the knowledge. At times I have ignored my intuition, only to say later, “I knew that was going to happen.” Fortunately, the majority of these incidences have been harmless. But, the more we pay attention to these small intuitions and heed the “knowing,” the more attuned we become to the Voice. Later, when the Voice has more important information for us, we’ll be more likely to hear and listen.
Many people seem to be willing to trust their intuition in work, recreation, and even in politics, but sadly some of those same people do not trust their intuition in the realm of spirituality or religion. In fact, this is the most important area in which to listen to that gut feeling or that inner Voice. Sometimes that inner Voice would have us avoid a religious belief system that might prove to be harmful to us.
Intuition can be twisted by our egos, so it’s important to discern where the voice originates. But, with time and practice, intuition can become a healthy practice that guides us to the Light and away from darkness.
