Intuition – Invisible Acts of Power

There is a deep-seated misconception that being intuitive is a gift. It’s not. There is no such thing as a gift for intuition. I have finally realized that courage is the true gift, and intuition is sharpened as a result. Either you develop the ability to respond physically to what you are hearing, feeling, and sensing on the inside-or you don’t. Responding to others takes guts. What determines whether or not you have those guts is self-esteem. It is a strong sense of self. It is a willingness and ability to take charge of yourself.

You don’t need a lot of self-esteem. A little bit goes a long way; suddenly you are generous enough to give up the need to control other people. You don’t need to become 100% empowered. A 51% to 49% ratio will do the trick. Just get to the point where you’re conscious enough to hold yourself accountable for your own feelings. Just admit that you’re jealous, or embarrassed, or that you could betray a friend. Just get a little bit honest with your shadow. The moment you arrive there, you can really start dealing with your life.

You can’t live your life if all you focus on is how other people’s shadows have hurt you, you poor thing. You’ve got to get to the point where you look at the weapon that you’ve hidden in your own dark space. When you get to that point you can start looking at the healing of your self-esteem. As soon as that self-esteem is in place in a little bit of a way, you don’t pretend you don’t see that homeless person. You acknowledge that, “I see that person and I’m choosing to ignore that person.”

You don’t turn away and engage in conversation with a friend, in order to convince the friend that you didn’t see the homeless person. You don’t worry that if you didn’t do this, your friend might think you’re a terrible person because you’re walking by; you’re hoping that they think, “She didn’t see the homeless person because she’s talking to me.” At the same time you’re hoping the homeless person doesn’t say anything to the two of you, and become impossible to ignore, because you don’t want to part with a dollar.

That’s a lot of psychic drama, all because you don’t want to admit that, intuitively, you feel the energy of that homeless person; you go to all this trouble to avoid taking action on your intuitive hit. You’ve just received an intuitive hit, and not acted on it. That’s low self-esteem. If your intuition gave you the perfect instructions for your own physical healing, are you then going to say, “I can’t do it. What will the neighbors think?”

You might be worried about the state of the world, at the twenty thousand children dying each day in poor countries. Yet think of the problems of our own culture: People lying twenty thousand times a month. Which is the greater tragedy? In our culture, our poverty of spirit is horrible. Most of us are far more focused on managing other people’s dishonesty than in developing our own wisdom.

In 1975 I attended my very first lecture on consciousness. I was in my early twenties, and it was the first time I’d seen someone from the East. The teacher said, “The best gift you can give anyone in this life is to become a fully congruent human being.” The first thought I had in response was, “In a world that’s starving, what kind of self-centered, selfish idea is that?’ But today, I can’t imagine a more compassionate thing. The finest force you can be is a fully congruent soul.

When you have healthy self-esteem, you stop worrying what anyone else will say or think about what you’re doing. You glide with life, going where you’re called. Your intuition leads you effortlessly into acts of service. You channel grace. Even just closing your eyes and thinking about a problem, you channel grace.

No Fear

NO FEAR

Fear is the true root of all mishap.

A creator of victims, that starts as a

small spark of insecurity.

Igniting our frame with the doubt of ourselves

and our abilities to manifest that which is

perfect for our growth,

            it multiplies in our psyche

creating images many times their actual size

            blinding us to the vast possibilities within our grasp.

We become fascinated with fear’s expansion

feeling fully compelled to feed it.

Suddenly fear becomes larger than ourselves

and we are lost within its grasp.

Better to live fearlessly.

Rip it from your heart deliberately.

Experience that eternal moment of freedom

often mistaken for emptiness.

Allow love to flow in.

You’ll never miss fear once it’s gone.

It is only the anticipation of fear leaving

that begs it to stay.

Let it go……..

Fear will lie to you

in its quest for survival.

Fear is necessary

only to itself.

See the truth.

Know

No fear

The Official Answers Are No Answers At All – Seth

You are therefore in the process of bringing from your own psyches a new birth, from which, if you will forgive me, new ceremonies and organizations will spring. The birth of civilizations begins within the individual and the mass psyche, and springs outward.

Our Need for Positive Thoughts – Seth

Your body reacts to your thoughts. It does no good to take ten minutes a day and give yourself good suggestions and say, “I am brave, I am strong, I am healthy and young and rich,” and spend the rest of the time saying to yourself, “I am poor, I am getting old, I feel sore, or it is a cruddy world.” You are hypnotizing yourself.

Seth on The Sacredness of Life

I have told you before, there are NO ACCIDENTS! No man is sent accidentally and innocently off to war. He who kills must learn what killing is by being the victim. You will learn that you cannot buy peace through violence. You will learn it! You will learn not only that human life is sacred, but that the life within each molecule and atom is sacred.

Afraid of Love

I often wonder if we’re afraid of love for fear of where it might take us. Fear  is like a rock in the middle of a swiftly moving river. To be safe we think we need to hang on or be swept away to God knows where to experience God knows what. “Better to be safe than sorry”, we tell ourselves!

What a limiting view of ourselves and reality! Yet this fearful, limiting view of ourselves and reality serves as the foundation for our Old Testament thinking, and laws against any kind of deviation from any but the simplest definitions of who we are and what reality is. “Men must act like men and women must act like women”, we say. We fear our thoughts and emotions, the very foundation of our being, for their power to transform and create anew.

Is this a bad thing if it enables us to stabilize our experience, to have an experience we can depend on day after day, as opposed to more dream-like experiences that come and go as easily as we breath, as swiftly as our thoughts and feelings change?  I think it does become a problem when our desire for stability and simplicity becomes a stranglehold on life, when maintaining a limited world view denies and destroys the lives and rights of others.

This fearful reaction to change, or difference, demonstrates a lack of confidence, a lack of belief in ourselves. We fear that if we open ourselves up to the power that is ours, chaos will ensue, creation will explode in all directions and we will lose our focus in this beloved illusion we call “physical” reality. (See: The Ball of Light, A Dream About the Nature of Consciousness and Being)

Oh ye, of little faith. How can this be when ours is the power and the glory of creation? Do not the Children of God (All That Is) have the same power as Him? To develop and learn to control these powers, is it not necessary to use them, to experiment and play with them? Shouldn’t we be more afraid of the destructive power of fear than the creative power of love?
