Maitreya Wisdom Card #43 – Intuition
Every individual on the Earth plane has intuition. It is an inner knowing, a feeling which just comes without any logical thinking. Intuition is felt very strongly within your heart, as it connects to your heart, and it connects you to the world of Spirit. It is like a telephone line between you and the world of Spirit. However, imagine the telephone line having a huge boulder on it, stopping communication. This is what it is like when the Self is the controlling force.
For the majority of your life, you have listened to the Self; it often sounds like the mind or “logic”. The Self is your protector, and never stops working to look after your survival; because of this, it does not like change. It is constantly on alert, scanning and planning for potential problems and how to stop them. When change occurs, the Self brings up all of your fears, doubts, insecurities – all of your negative emotions – in an attempt to stop you from making changes. In order for us in the spiritual realms to communicate with you, we need the Self to be occupied, so that it cannot interfere with our communication. When the Self – the mind – is occupied, then we can communicate on another level. We can send inspiration to you, give you information to help you on your life path, and send wonderful healing energy to you. This information is intuition.
There are many who believe that it is imperative to meditate, that true communication with spiritual realms can only take place during meditation. Many individuals can meditate and enjoy doing so. For them it is the highlight of their day to sit and communicate with us. For others, meditation becomes a struggle and a frustration. Meditation can be difficult when you are in a state of worry, anxiety, doubt, or filled with any intensive “negative” emotions. You can also block your intuition when you race around doing a hundred things, as this also prevents us from communicating with you. You need to be relatively still, doing gardening, housework or something simple to keep your Self occupied. When your Self is occupied, the intuition will come to you at the moment your Self least expects. Even reading a book or watching television can enable the world of Spirit to communicate with you through your intuition.
The world of Spirit communicates through your intuition, sometimes called your sixth sense. For some individuals, it is very easy to open up to Spirit, while for others, it takes some Earth time. If you wish to work with Spirit, then tell the Ultimate Being (God). The process of enabling the world of Spirit to work with you will then begin. There are some people who have a heightened intuition; they have usually had many previous lives where their intuition has been actively used. Therefore, in their current incarnation it is very close to the surface. Listen to your intuition – never doubt it – for it is the connection between you and Spirit.
If you draw this card in your reading, it indicates that you need to pay more attention to your intuition and inner feelings, as Spirit is working very closely with you, for your spiritual development and for the work you are doing. It is also a reminder to find different ways to keep the Self occupied, so that it cannot interfere with your intuition and the communication process.
