I’ve learnt a huge amount during the making of my film on intuition.
But one of the most important things I’ve learnt is this –
Our first thought is our intuitive thought. That’s what comes through suddenly, unexpectedly, it somehow manages to sidestep the filters of rationality and logic, and it shows up via your intuitive system – tah da! – before our rational mind swats it to the ground.
We dismiss the first thought.
We don’t trust it.
Oh that’s crazy, we think.
But that’s our intuition trying to guide us.
We take refuge in our rational mind.
Our intellect is what keeps us alive.
We use our intellect to survive.
Our intellect limits us.
It keeps us small.
It keeps us shrivelled up,
Limited to what we know,
What we’ve done before,
What’s expected of us.
Our intuitive mind seeks to expand us –
Wants to show us what’s possible –
Wants to break us out of what we know,
So that we can grow and discover,
And find out who we truly are.
Don’t hide behind the second thought.
The rational thought.
The safe thought.
Learn to trust the first thought.
Run with it –
See where it takes you.
Because where it will take you –
Is to the full expression of who you really are.
Think about it.
