Two deer aren’t out there on the veldt having this conversation:
“Hey, Bob. There’s a lion over there. We’d better run.”
“You’re crazy, Tom. I don’t see any lion. There’s nothing over there.”
Lion swoops in and kills both deer.
In the actual animal world, Tom’s going to take off running when he sees the lion.
Listen to your instincts no matter what. Just because we don’t want something to be true or because we can’t yet comprehend it to be true does not mean that is not in fact true. Something can sound absolutely crazy to us and still remain true. The entire world may believe the opposite of what your instincts are telling you, but if you know what’s good for you, you’ll set the ad hominems and straw man fallacies aside and heed your instincts.
Each one of us is unique, so our instinctual warnings and other messages are unique to each one of us. One type of communication isn’t any better or worse than any other.
Watch babies and children up to the age of about three years old. They have not had their instincts taught out of them yet. Notice how they smile at something/someone around you when no physical person is there in that space. They’re still living with their instincts fully engaged. Intuition is instinctual. Most of us have learned to overlook our intuition in favor of the stimulation we receive from the outside world. When you can, help young children utilize their intuition. That can often best by done by just listening to what the children say. Listen to their seemingly creative “stories.” They may seem outlandish to you, but could be perceived in a completely different manner by the children. Why would you want to take that away from them?
Now is the time to heed your instinctual guidance. If you don’t know why, but you feel a strong urge to research someone or something or feel you need to try something you’ve never had any interest in previously, listen to these urges. Especially if you don’t understand it, listen to it and take action. If you don’t understand why, that’s okay. Don’t let your mind jump in and try to take over the show. Keep an open mind and use your discernment to distinguish between what your mind is telling you and what your instincts are telling you. Life is guiding you to something new.
