“The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, and the solution comes to you, and you don’t know how or why” – Albert Einstein

Intuition, sixth sense, gut feeling, is that ability to just ‘know’ about a situation, a decision or perhaps a person.

We have become so reliant on looking at the facts and the data rather than recognizing that little voice inside of us that we often end up dismissing it all together.

But intuition is our own and special way to size up a situation and move accordingly. The problem is our conscious mind (or ego) will always try to doubt the intuitive, with “it can’t be”, “what if” “but”.

Real Possibilities

heart beatSometimes our minds get in the way of us living the real possibilities life is giving us today.  Some of us  have a picture of what we think our lives should look like and because of that end up missing out on the many opportunities of today.

Having an open mind and living in the present allows us to be more in rhythm with life itself.  The fact is we don´t know everything.  I´m not advocating not having plans and direction.  I´m just advocating not missing out on people and opportunities that could give us experiences that we never thought of.

How does the old saying go?  Be careful of what you wish for, lest it come true.  Let´s add:  Be careful of what you don´t see, it might just be what you really want.
