Intuition – Guidance from Your Soul
By Sara Jane
Have you ever thought what intuition is?
Where does it come from?
How does it make you feel when that thought appears from “nowhere”?
To me our Soul guides us through our Heart in the form of intuition and feelings.
Recently something has happened which has awaked something from the past and my thoughts have been racing.
Confusing thoughts as they appeared to be coming from, for want of a better way of putting it “different directions”.
At the end of last week (w/e 13th May’18) I started trying to make sense of it when I felt what I believe to be Intuition kicking in.
It felt as if I was being told that our mind has 2 different on switches
Which to me is why I felt the thoughts were coming from different directions.
One set of thoughts felt sensible, logical, loving and caring, the others felt dispassionate, thoughtless, uncaring – not really who I am.
There are still aspects of confusion for me in this because I would always share be kind to yourself, what feels right for you, listen to your Heart and what is right for you is right for others around you.
Let me however clarify, when I say “what is right for you is right for others around you”, I’m talking about when you say “No” to others, when you do what feels right for you, when you accept “No” from others and follow what is right for you and let them do the same.
Trying to drag people into what you feel is right for you, is not allowing them to act on their own intuition and feelings.
So, when your thoughts start “dictating” other people’s actions and what will happen to them, these are when your mind is disconnected from your Heart.
When your thoughts allow all free will, the freedom to choose for themselves, when they stay out of trying to control a situation, that is when your mind is connected to your Heart.
Staying detached from an outcome allows everyone involved to be and do what is right for them.
I hope I have explained what I mean by this in a way you can understand because this intuition has, I feel, helped me to think about my thoughts.
Think about the ones that are constructive and from the Heart and destructive and from ego.
Intuition to me is Enlightenment an awaken of knowing, of understanding, of feeling fully present in a moment.
Thought/thinking are very powerful tools and how we use them and how much attention we pay to them can make a great difference in our lives.
To me our Soul speaks to our Heart and in turn our Heart speaks to us as Intuition which is put into words by our mind.
When we “hear/feel” those intuitive words it is up to us to keep the Heart/Mind connection to evaluate them so that we can act on them and bring them fully into our lives.
Intuition is a Gift we have all be blessed with, the more we listen to it and connect with it, the more we will experience and grow, the more our minds will stay connected with our Heart.

When you hear someone say you really should do that – there is no “should” about it.
It is your choice, listen to your gut instincts, your intuition, how does it feel to you?
Is the person who has said it doing it? Or are they just telling you “you should” because they don’t have the courage to or some other reason.
By all means it is great that we all share ideas and opportunities, but it is not for any of us to tell another what they should or shouldn’t do.
The simple answer is NO, unless it really resonates with you and you do it because you choose to, not because someone else has told you “you should”.
It is time to reset your thinking from should, must, have to, no choice etc.
Are there times when you feel you really should do something, even if you would prefer not to?
This is about making a judgement call and think about whatever it is and weighing it up.
Give it thought, think about the affects on you and others, think about the time and timing. Probably most important of all speak to anyone else that may be involved.
Your timing may not be their timing and vice versa.
Sometimes we are thinking about doing something out of kindness, like visiting someone who is sick or trying to be helpful to someone who is struggling.
If that is what you are thinking you “should” do, find out first and foremost if it is convenient and ask what works for them.
Many “shoulds, musts, have to’s” can end up leaving us wondering why we bothered because we thought we were being “nice” but it really didn’t work for the other involved.
Learning to talk to each other is a really great step forward. Someone knowing you are thinking about them may be all that is “required” and everyone is happy.
Many people have grown up being taught to think about others and not themselves.
Truth is none of us really knows what is going on in another’s life or head and we are not mind readers – so ask.
You can always say No and make an alternative suggestion.
It is time to reset your thinking about others, that it is good to offer help and support, it is also great to receive it, as, when and how it is appropriate for each individual.
There were times I found myself wanting to use the “should” word when writing this and I had to find another way of writing what I was trying to say.
To me the word “should” feels like I am being told I have to do something and we don’t have to do anything we don’t choose to do.
Sometimes it feels like we have Hobson’s Choice, that we have to make the best of what we feel is a bad situation but we still have a choice and if we actually had the courage to speak to people we could find that there are other choices or the whole thing could just go away.

Think about it for a minute, which feeling do you call “a hunch”?
When I started to think about this I came to the conclusion that to me it is just another word for intuition or gut instinct.
You get “a hunch” that something feels “right” or “wrong”; so it is a “feeling”.
Do you listen to those “feelings”?
If you are anything like me you have had many occasions when you haven’t and later regretted it.
We get these “feelings” and then our head, mind, ego, whatever you wish to call it, chimes in “don’t be silly it’s just your imagination”, “ignore it, you want to do it, so do it” or “you can’t do that, what if this happens or that happens”.
Are you smiling? Can you hear these voices in your head?
Our minds/egos are very good at distorting our “feelings”, belittling them and we can be easily persuaded not to listen to the gentle voice of our soul.
Can you remember a time when you have acted on a hunch? When that niggling inner voice either didn’t get a chance to pipe up or you ignored it?
Think about it; look back on what happened and the outcome.
It may have been something very simple, it may have been something quite momentous; whatever it was, I’m guessing it was a positive outcome.
Open to your hunches, your intuition, they will not lead you astray and could be the start of many synchronistic happenings.
Many of the most amazing things that can happen in your life can be from you acting on a hunch or a whim.
Let variety and excitement into your life.
Listening has lead me on many an adventure, including going to Romania to work with the Carpathian Large Carnivore Project for 2 weeks in 2000.
I organised sponsored walks for adults with learning difficulties, including one with Wolves and arranging “Spirit of Freedom” a project which took people with learning difficulties to America to spend time with the Nez Perce Indians and to visit Yellowstone National Park.
Also learning Reiki and other complementary therapies and starting my own on-line TV program Gift of Healing TV.
Life has many gifts for us and sometimes they are “delivered” in hunches and intuition.
Let’s learn to throw caution to the wind and unwrap these gifts and listening to the hunches of warning.
Yes I have also had those and one such ended up with me going to the police about fraud; if I had listened to my initial instincts it would never have got that far.
Hunches are good and positive things, they are always worth listening to and following.
