Our inner guidance system

“What’s wrong with me?”

It seems to be a common existential question of many people. As the state of our world moves forward into higher consciousness; yes, despite very challenging and confusing current events, we are at a time where we need to open to new possibilities and change the lens we perceive life through. What if the truth of each of us, and existence, has been there all along but just buried deep inside us? Becoming aware of our intuition and building that into a personal guidance system is a powerful way of coming back to our truth. This then assists us, through guidance, clarity, more understanding, and direction in decision making, in the ever-changing, ever-expanding world we live in.

John Holland reminds us of our truth: “Imagine yourself as a luminous being of energy and light, because in reality… you are.”

Richard Rohr says that we, the human race, have come to a state of doubting that there is any true spiritual presence in our world anymore. This doubting has led to not hearing, sensing our inner voice, our intuition, the higher guidance that has never left us. He goes on to encourage us by pointing to the discoveries that the science fields of astrophysics, anthropology, physics and biology have made that now confirm the profound intuitions some religions have spoken about for many centuries. R. Rohr calls this intuition our inner compass, our guide. It’s time to come back to the incredible and ever-present resource of our intuition.

Dr. Joe Dispenza explains that everything is made of energy, connected in an amazing “web” throughout time and space. This web is the quantum field — all of existence. He goes on to say that this energy forms vibrations of information that actually creates various degrees of physical structures and their individual purposes/functions, such as our body, animals, trees and automobiles. This quantum field, vibrations of energy, then is “an invisible intelligence.” It stands to reason that intuition, psychic abilities and our inner compass come from this energy field. 

The English word, intuition, means “knowledge from within” in Latin. According to an article in Examined Existence, intuition comes from several areas in the brain. The right hemisphere is where creativity, spontaneity, senses, intuitive thoughts and emotions are formed. More specifically, Antonio Damasio, a neuroscientist from Iowa, confirmed that intuition comes from the ventromedial prefrontal cortex; a deeper part of our brain. An article in Psychological Science refers to a team of researchers from Wales that have proven the existence of intuition. The article quotes the researchers, “These data suggest that we can use unconscious information in our body or brain to help guide us through life.” Psychic ability is not different than intuition. Intuition or psychic ability is accessed through specific senses, in many cases clairaudience, clairvoyance, clairsentience, or claircognizance. 

John Holland describes four types of psychic abilities. Clairsentience is the attaining of knowledge through an inner feeling. Clairaudience is accessing information through an inner hearing. Clairvoyance is the ability to use inner sight, “seeing through your mind’s eye.” Claircognizance is an inner knowing. Psychic ability, then, is not unlike intuition. It is simply the intuitive skill that has been focused on, developed and refined. 

It feels appropriate to end with a powerful quote by Dr. Joe Dispenza: “How can a consciousness that has created all of life... that has expressed such a deep and abiding interest in us, be anything but pure love?” 

So when you ask yourself, “What’s wrong with me?” remember, we are of that consciousness, that pure love! Breathe and expand into that!
