Intuition Is Anything But LogicalBy
Due to my own spiritual transformation lately I have come to leave a lot behind – among those things a lot of previous beliefs and thought-systems, and there are some things that I just don’t agree with anymore on a Soul level.
As I wrote on my about-page, my whole life and how I perceived life changed – and changed forever.
Last week I was contacted by a person who asked me if I wanted to be a part of a book-launch and give my free e-book as a bonus gift to people who bought this particular book in exchange for me to promote the book to my Newsletter subscribers.
This collaboration would have meant that my mailing-list would grow, and from a business perspective that is what every person with a list wants, so after I had went through the book I said yes, but felt within me that the message of the book was not a 100% in alignment with my (new) message of spiritual surrender, so I wrestled with this for a couple of days.
I reasoned with my Self and said things like; “Well, there are some points that I agree with, it’s not all out of alignment” and so on.
I asked my Oracle Cards and Tarot cards about this, while continuing feeling resistance to the collaboration so I finally said to myself; “If I still feel this way tomorrow, I’ll withdraw myself from the book launch.”
And so the next morning (today) I felt the same way, and I knew that I had to write these people and say that I want out of it. I immediately felt it was the right things to do when I hit the “send”-button.
My point with this post is, that intuition is not logical, and these things happen to all people at times. We weigh the pro’s and con’s, we reason and try to talk ourselves into thinking logically, and we question our inner voice when things just don’t make any sense to our conscious mind.
If I would look at this from a logical point of view, it makes perfect sense; this collaboration would help me grow my list, and it would help me get more readers and traffic (which would lead to perhaps new clients too) and so on.
But from a intuitive point of view, the message this book has (goal-setting, wish-lists and ‘manifesting your dreams’) it’s not in alignment with my core message anymore, and so I have to ask myself if I would want to get more subscribers to my list who is not organic so to speak..? No, I don’t want that. (organic meaning they don’t really resonate with my message but rather resonates with ‘making things happen’ and manifesting, creating your own reality, and so on)
No, I’m not interested in that. I have never promoted anything that I don’t like, and I will not begin now. To me it’s more important to be real and stay true to who I am and what I’m about.
I truly love my mailing-list, and I really enjoy writing Newsletters to my subscribers, and I want to be real and authentic, so I rather have a few subscribers that actually are in alignment with what I have to share with the world, than having lots of subscribers that may not even read my Newsletters because they don’t resonate with me on a deeper level.
So,.. I chose to go with my intuition, and I feel a relief, and I feel that I have made room for what feels true and real to me.
There is nothing wrong with the book I was asked to promote to my list, there were absolutely some things I could resonate with in it, but most of it was similar to my old ways of thinking and believing, so I let it go.
One of the people involved has a large mailing-list themselves so it would have been a great deal for me – IF I had looked at it only from a logical perspective.
But intuition is not logical at all.
Is there something you have been feeling is not quite right, but you are procrastinating because it’s just doesn’t make any sense to your logical mind to make a certain decision?
Maybe this is your sign to make it anyway?
Maybe this is what you needed to hear?
Trust your intuition, it will not lead you wrong. Even if we can’t see where it leads right now, it will lead you right in the end.
How would it feel to let go of logic? If you feel a sense of relief right now, that is your clue to trust your intuition.
Only the ego makes us tense while Spirit brings us peace. If something is truly right for us, we wouldn’t have that feeling of something being ‘off’.
Think about that, it really is that simple.
Not the same as to say it’s always easy… but it is that simple 🙂
