Honest Intuition

Which is more trust worthy intuition or logic? A question that has perplexed humankind for millennia. Women excel at intuition, the silent knowing without overthinking and overanalyzing. Not to say men are not intuitive as well, but in general women are simply more intuitive.

By relying more on logical reasoning it has been thought that the approach yielded better outcomes. Thinking it through, evaluating all sides, comparing outcomes was somehow more valuable. Somehow in that process the flaws were overlooked. Personal agendas, wanting the outcome to be one way or another, ignoring some data and including other was the norm and the the associated issues were glossed over.

Meanwhile intuition became suspect because it was too opinion and not fact based. It was thought to be based in feelings and not hard cold facts that truly don’t exist. Thoughts and feelings have been proven to have a profound impact on outcome even more so than data so it seems intuition may be the frontrunner.

It is time we started listening to that small quiet voice called intuition and having less reliance on ever changing science and “facts”.

This is the way nature operates, she listens and responds. What do you intuit?

Rain meditation

There is so much we can learn from rain. It cleanses everything it touches equally, it cleanses the air and leaves healthy ions for us to breathe in and it nourishes Mama Earth and gives her the tools she needs to support life.

Rain soothes our minds as we listen to it’s gentle rhythm and it aligns us with the rhythm of nature. If we sit with it, we can let it clean the cobwebs from our minds. If we meditate with it, we can choose to let go of negative thoughts and visualize them washing away to be recycled by the Mama Earth.

If we stand in the rain or dance in the rain we become one with nature, our beings merging with the rain as it draws some of our energy from us and into the ground. By meditating while we stand or walk in the rain we allow it to rain inside of us too, cleansing us inside and outside.

What if we think of rain as a being too, different than us certainly rain is not confined inside a container as we are. What if rain, all water, is a different being? What is it teaching us? Maybe not to be attached to ourselves or where we live or what we do. Maybe to go with the flow and maybe in community we are stronger.

Enjoy a rainy day.
