Recently I noticed a woman at my Zumba class who looked quite familiar. I kept asking myself, without missing a step of course, "Where do I know her from?" As hard as I tried, I could not place where I had seen her before. Still, I was certain our paths had crossed in a different place, at a much earlier time. Then today, it occurred to me exactly where I had met her. At the end of class, I approached her, re-introduced myself and reminded her of where we had met four years ago.
Isn't it fascinating how our consciousness works? We go through each day absorbing a wealth of information, connecting with various people and processing innumerable details. All of this information is forever imprinted in our minds and in our hearts. And, even when we are unable to immediately excavate a precise detail from our vast memory bank, our hearts STILL know. We get that deep sense. It is an inner knowing that beckons us.
It's the same thing when we are in the state of confusion. We know that something is happening; yet, we cannot clearly name it or begin to express it. We want to see the bigger picture, but it's still one big blur. What do we do? How do we remain in a peaceful state? We stay connected to that unexplainable feeling and trust that it will reveal itself when the time is right.
The gift of intuition is very much alive in each of us. It holds the answer to the simplest of questions and the most astounding of discoveries. Pay attention to the stirring from within even if you are not yet able to name it. See your intuition as a conveyor of light. Allow that inner sense to direct you even when the path seems unclear or uncertain.
Love to everyone,
