“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created society that
honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”
Last week I said I would follow up with a few additional ideas from Dr. Dyers book Real Magic along with personal successes I have experienced practicing these principles. In the past, in reading success stories or coincidental happenings that he talked about in his book, I never imagined they could happen for me. However I did follow his suggestions for implementing a new mind-set. I am amazed at the results.
The following is another one of the fourteen keys he recommends for Creating a Miracle Mind-set.
“You have to be comfortable with the idea that strong “inner pleadings” and “sudden hunches” are truly inner voices offering you guidance. Become comfortable with your intuitive voices and hear them as a loving guide from the non-physical spiritual world.”
Due to the COVID-19 restrictions three of our grandchildren experienced major hardships in having all major senior year events cancelled. Our grandson has been faced with many disappointments. His high school band was invited to perform in Europe last summer and in Disney World. Both events were cancelled of course because of the worldwide pandemic. Beginning in January 2021 he had planned to take tours of several out of state universities. He quickly learned they are not able to offer onsite tours. They have to be done virtually.
As I have said many times, I always start my mornings by writing in my grateful journal. Last week I sensed that I should first send our grandson a text with a few words of encouragement. While writing I wanted to make some comparisons of other times in history when things were incredibly challenging just to survive. I looked at our bookshelf and a title of a book caught my attention. It was a book I read in 1984 written by Victor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning.
My first thought was that this reference would certainly not be relatable to a high school senior. And it would surely be unfamiliar to him. This often happens when I receive an intuitive thought. I begin to doubt if the idea is truly guidance. In spite of that I referenced the book because my intuition seemed to draw my attention to it very strongly. I decided to take the risk.
Victor Frankl tells the moving account of his life amid the horrors of the Nazi death camps. Dr. Frankl spent years as a prisoner in Auschwitz. He survived and became one of the most famous and gifted of all psychiatrists. “Frankl believed that even in the midst of dehumanizing and atrocious conditions, life still had meaning and that suffering had a purpose. Frankl thought that during extreme physical circumstances, a person could escape through his or her spiritual self as a means to survive seemingly unbearable conditions. He believed the spiritual self could not be affected by external forces.”
With some hesitancy I followed my intuition and sent the text with a few quotes from the book. Later that day I received a reply from my grandson “Pops that was POWERFUL. Your message connected because in Religion Class we are currently discussing Victor Frankl and his book Man’s Search for Meaning.”
This experience reinforced how important it is for me to pay attention to intuitive hunches and my inner voice guidance. The key is to take the risk and not allow the inner voice to be ignored. This week you may want to pay attention to your intuition and take the risk of acting on it. Any success you may have experienced in doing this could offer encouragement to others by sharing your story in the comments.
