When was the last time you knew who was calling you, before you heard the phone ring? When was the last time you stopped to listen to that inner voice that was beckoning you? When was the last time you broke from tradition, the expected, and went off in a completely different course because you had a hunch or a gut feeling that pulled you in a new direction? And when was the last time you absolutely trusted that inner voice you KNEW was speaking the absolute truth?
This week’s on KOWS Wise Woman Storytime we explore the topic of intuition – that experience of knowing something even though you have no idea of how or why you know it. Batja Cates shares her personal story of how through a series of synchronistic events, she was propelled into the practice of imaginal inner guidance work without any formal training or prior experience. Trusting her natural ability to evoke spontaneous imagery in her clients, Batja successfully assisted her clients through the use of imagery as they faced serious illnesses and surgical procedures.
Some of the greatest minds affirm the power of intuition and the importance of heeding its voice.
“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”
While it is debated if Albert Einstein or Bob Samples (scholar, artist, author or visionary) said this, I think we can all agree that this quote really addresses how we prioritize and allow left brain rational thinking to dominate over the still, quietude of right brain awareness.
Listening to Batja’s story has helped me get back in touch with the treasure trove of opportunities, insights and gifts that become available to me when I let go of the busyness and noise of the outside world and tune into my heart and intuition.
I have a hunch there’s some really good stuff here for you.
