I received a solid education and was exceedingly well trained in building arguments and using reason and logic to convince my interlocutor about the points I try to make. But, although this can be engaging, and sometimes even exciting, it’s just a mind game that can also be completely divorced from the reality of my body, my senses, inner and outer.
I have not been taught how to translate for others the things that I perceive and feel, the ones that are Truth for me, though I may not be able to explain why in any convincing manner. The lack of this skill has led me to doubt, at times, the very Truth that I perceive. It has led me to refrain from sharing my perceptions, and my Truth.
I have been learning, slowly, over the course of years, with heart-felt diligence, to give myself permission to have these un-reasoned experiences, to express this non-linear, intuitive mode of understanding the world and what is true for me. I have learned that what I sense does not have to make sense, that I can know without understanding; what I know remains true.
I have learned to trust what I intuit, what rests in my heart, what my Spirit whispers to me when I am willing to stop building arguments and resorting to reason, and listen.
