The Secret of this Article: It applies to EVERY type of decision whether you are a leader of a big corporation or simply engaged in personal decisions about your life: You can use this same pathway to decide whether to buy or sell a company, start or stop making a new product, buy or sell a stock, choose someone to date/marry, or to make critical health decisions. It applies to all decision making whether related to work life or home life….
The BEST DECISIONS are INTUITIVE! Have you made a few decisions as a leader or in any other aspect of life along the way and thought afterward, “There’s no way I could have seen that coming.” Wrong! In fact you could have seen most things coming in your life through the use of intuition.
Albert Einstein worked intuitively and used an intuitive process to get quiet before solving problems. He sat in a chair with his set of keys in one hand and used a process to get to mental quiet. When the keys fell out of his hand, it signaled him to begin working and to simply write down the answer to the problem he was addressing. Thomas Edison worked in the same way and would hold his hand to his ear before answering the questions of his postdocs. He was listening from a quiet place for the answers.
Does becoming intuitive mean you need to become a psychic? No. Don’t bother, because psychic work tells you where a person is and where they have been in their consciousness, which impresses a lot of people, but pure psychics have no ability to anticipate the future unless they are also truly intuitive. Lots of money is wasted on psychic work. You need to strive to learn to be intuitive, NOT psychic.
Intuition is not an accident. It is a process that can be learned. Intuition follows the combination of 1) Transcendence and 2) Meditation as a natural consequence, but only most powerfully when both are done.
Most human beings use the power of inference rather than intuition in making decisions, which is moving from a set of facts to a conclusion. That process is often in error, because the facts are often wrong and the connection made by the human mind may also be incorrect.
The true path of knowing is intuition.
So what are the these two requirements for practicing and developing intuition, namely, transcendence and meditation?
Transcendence means going beyond prior thoughts and feelings about a subject. Often our consciousness is clouded by conflicting thoughts and feelings. Transcendence is a process I teach to executives and their employees alike to eliminate that conflict and come to a quiet place of knowing. But what I’ve found is that transcendence alone is not enough for most people. Meditation is also required for reaching the fully intuitive state. We need both.
Meditation has now become a common “Western” practice. Sit in a chair, palms up, eyes raised to the 3rd eye location just slightly above the eyebrows at center, which the disciple John referred to as the “single eye,” and breath in and out. One simple mantra to use is the “I am” meditation, saying (without any motion of your tongue and without sound) “I” on the in breath and “am” on the out-breath. I….am….I….am….I….am…etc. Allow your breathing to lead the “I am” mantra rather than the other way around. Simply be as mentally quiet as you can in between breaths and when the breath comes in, say (mentally only), “I” and expire with “am” also mentally.
If you do your best to both transcend and meditate on a daily basis, you will become fully intuitive in time. It takes dedication and practice. There is no “bad meditation” as Deepak Chopra has said, and in my view, there is also no “bad transcendence.”
What do I mean by becoming “fully intuitive”? I mean to become as “fully” intuitive as you can become. Some people naturally have a head start. They were born with intuitive skills beyond many other people. You need to start where you start, and move up from there. Such is the ladder to higher consciousness. Start climbing! Wherever you start, I will be able to help you move higher, faster. That is my role, my area of service in this life.
One footnote I’d like to make is on where prayer fits in. Prayer, if done in a very active mental state, will bring up all the energy you have around a decision. That can be of potential use, especially if you don’t stop there! If, instead, you move from that initial mentally active prayer to a more quiet form of prayer, so that as you pray your consciousness becomes quieter and quieter, prayer will amount to a form of transcendence work. Still, knowing how to actively transcend is a very powerful addition to prayer, and it’s well-suited to the workplace and to other more non-ecumenical settings. Finally, if you pray and transcend, it’s still important to become even quieter through meditation prior to coming to an intuitive decision.
In summary, if you intend to be intentionally intuitive, learn transcendence (contact me if you don’t know how at 424-234-6401) and meditation (contact me for a recommendation of what I believe is the most powerful meditative practice) or you may miss out on your natural born power to be fully intuitive. There is no charge for talking with me about your path to higher consciousness. That is why I’m here…
