Metaphysical intuition is very much like chi, metaphysical energy, and is in fact enhanced in the same meditative practices. To initially feel the flow, one must first believe, one must first imagine, and then the chi – the metaphysical intuition – will arise. This runs completely contrary to our post-modern mind state that refuses to believe until being presented with proof, sometimes even after being presented proof.
We are trained to sense only the tangible and physical. We believe we are not trained, we think we are completely developed. But take a step back – there is no limit to our development. If you do not practice developing your chi or your metaphysical intuition, instead concentrating on the tangible routine, you are limiting your comprehension and being. If you’re not training, you’re being trained. Meditation and meditative movements are called practices because one is never finished, for if you are not practicing or training, especially in the extensively meditated post-modern world, you are being steered or trained by others.
Sometimes we catch metaphysical intuition and then convince ourselves that our physical senses revealed the observation, not our metaphysical intuition. This is part of the predominant training of outside influences, that we do not have intuitive insight, that the institutions have the answers and that it’s not in us. We convince ourselves to even stop listening to our own insights because we have been trained that way.
Coming into this article after I wrote this one worked for me as a nice confirmation-nod-next-step. I don’t know what else to call these confirmation-nod-next-steps, but they’ve been happening a lot, and goes through periods of acceleration and deceleration. What they are are outside confirmations (whether through reading or someone saying something to me) of things I’ve just lately realised for myself, but they come bundled with an extra bit of info that makes me sit up and take notice.
I went for two free talks this week. One was a nice confirmation-revision-connection event; covering things I knew, but nicely and systematically outlined, and where I could sit and reconnect with people I liked and hadn’t seen in a while, sharing information. The second was confirmation-nod-next-step, on a “very high” level.
Energy sensitivity has one big drawback–it’s a whole new world of discovering new things that are hard to describe and that only a handful of people around you will understand (if you’re lucky); some things you get awareness about are unpleasant, and it’s easy to give in to fear and want to go back to ignorance, and for a while I was also getting a whole bunch of advice that just made me more fear-conscious. I got sick of it, of looking up defensive methods and wondering if I’d done them right, if they were working, etc etc. Then I realised the quickest way of getting out of fear and back to MY OWN agenda was concentrating on the heart and loving even the object of fear, having a little conversation, then dropping it when I was done. Listening to someone talk who understood and advised the same thing was fantastic; AND she was the person I’ve heard talk about the body moving through… gah, is there a correct term? Phases of light.
Not too long ago, I’d been aware of myself loving and being surrounded by teal/turquoise. It moved slowly to blue–to the extent that I know my heart was blue, and I could imagine blue light in my hands on command. I still have that. My health took an upturn–I could be surrounded by sick people for days, underslept and etc., but still be OK, with occasional (but dwindling) allergy-days that I simply barreled through. An annoying whitehead I’d had on the edge of my right eye for years (I’d long gotten used to people “helping” me by notifying me about it) suddenly was rubbed out one night as I was half-asleep–THAT woke me up immediately and I had to rush to the mirror to see both my eyes symmetrical again after a long time–silly things like that, but big signs to me. And of course, the curing of the hyperthyroid–but I’m still conscious of that one being a sensitive watch-point for me, as it’s a big indicator for me of my having healthy expression.
The speaker, Soluntra, gave more insight–on which parts of us are habits of ego/unworthiness (thinking of people, even positively, when they’re not present! thinking we NEED to help; that people will suffer because of your action/non-action), on the achievement of no-mind. As L said after the talk, it was nice to know we’re not insane for realising these things; it just goes against the grain of so much that society programs into us, but (as some of us know) that hasn’t worked. It just takes ONE person to call it out, to speak the truth, and it can give others so much relief and strength. So that was my experience on Friday night, and it was awesome. I was so buzzed I couldn’t sleep until 3am. (No alcohol needed!)
Next steps? A different colour light, of course. And more magical discoveries, I’m sure.
