Listening to Your Gut

‘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.’ (Ascribed to Albert Einstein)    
Recently in doing research on digestion, I came across a remarkable web resource that was comprehensive and helpful in a multitude of practical ways.  A central theme emphasized was to become contemplative and allow the intuitive process to occur. This would bring forth a positive connection between the mind and body.
If you are dealing with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Diverticulitis, Crohn’s Disease, Spastic Colon, Constipation, Diarrhea, Prolapse, Leaky Gut  or other more serious digestive issues, please check out the information available at Listen To Your Gut.

 Being reminded to ‘listen to my gut’ led me to consider the role of intuition in overall health and I found information shared by Eugene Sadler-Smith to be helpful.

 He concludes: ‘We all have intuition, we’ve all experienced its effects, and we’ve all lived with the consequences of listening to it or of ignoring it. It works in parallel with the analytical mind and both minds are needed if we are to perform, profit and grow in our professional and personal lives.
Unfortunately the intuitive mind cannot communicate directly with us in the normal language of our conscious awareness – words. To get its message across it speaks a different language – that of ‘gut feeling’ or ‘hunch’.  It is a biologically ancient body-mind system but as is the case with even the most advanced digital technology, one of its drawbacks is that it isn’t 100% reliable. The intuitive blip that we sense on the screen of consciousness can be misunderstood and misinterpreted, overlooked or ignored. Sometimes its predictions can take us to the wrong place and we may, at our peril, confuse its voice with other more feeble but potentially dangerous voices such as logical errors, bias, prejudice and wishful thinking.
There are four distinctive features of the intuitive mind, namely that it speaks in the language of feelings; it’s fast and spontaneous in its operation; it’s a holistic ‘pattern-recognition enabled system’; and it offers hypotheses rather than certainties.’
Intuition is intrinsic to our survival on a personal level and is frequently used
for business decisions as well, even in mega corporations.
Machines and computers cannot be creative in themselves because creativity requires something more than the processing of existing information. It requires human thought, spontaneous intuition and a lot of courage. ~Akio Morita  (SONY)
Finally, I found the following quotes that further clarify the power of intuition and its influence on our decision making.
Intuition is a spiritual faculty and does not explain, but simply points the way. ~Florence Scovel Shinn

The invisible intelligence that flows through everything in a purposeful fashion is also flowing through you. ~Wayne Dyer
