Someone recently posed a thought-provoking question regarding the difference between intuition and consciousness. Consciousness is defined as the state of being aware of one’s own existence, sensations, thoughts, surroundings, etc., or the thoughts and feelings, collectively, of an individual or a group of people. Intuition is defined as the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning.
That seems to say it all for this whisper, until next time (tee tee)! I do wonder how the two work together in harmony. I think the ego plays some part, maybe in both, since intuition and ego are both energies of the heart. Consciousness seems to be more a part of the etheric body, or the soul, which is also referred to as the subconscious or superconscious. Is there messaging between consciousness and intuition?
Paul Brunton has a quote that goes “Every test successfully met is rewarded by some growth in intuitive knowledge, strengthening of character, or initiation into a higher consciousness.” Perhaps higher consciousness is built through the intuitive senses? Let’s get a whisper on intuition vs consciousness:
Consciousness is the energetic essence of life that some refer to as the soul. The life-force energy takes form as the most basic element necessary for physical incarnation. This energy stretches across the bridge that connects the physical to the spiritual realms, reaching across the Universe as the touchstone of life or the spark of light from which life springs eternal.
Some may place blocks on that bridge, creating the experience of being disconnected from Source. The reasons vary from basic human fear to arrogance, but they may choose to turn away from the school of life for many lifetimes. They will eventually return to love, so this should not be judged or questioned. If there are people in your life who appear to be resting or sleeping, find comfort in knowing that they will not escape awakening in a return to love.
Intuition is inherent to this specific incarnation, representing the continuum of the senses. Each gift possessed by the individual can be elevated beyond what can be imagined. Heightened senses build a non-linear structure of energy that the soul can use like a staircase. By taking each step in order to glean the lesson or energy found within life on Earth, intuition can lead to the most stable form of higher consciousness.
The soul quickly forgets why it came to Earth, and the formation of ego occurs due to the survival instinct. Ego energy is found in the heart, along with the feeling or emotions that create intuition. The more in touch with emotions, the more heightened intuition becomes. Balanced ego energy can support instinctive, split-second response that is beyond the analytical thought process. The result can be life-changing and life-saving. The whisper title could be consciousness, love, intuition – the language between the heart and soul.
Bring joy, ease suffering and create beauty, then dance like you mean it!
“Yoga is, as I can readily believe, the perfect and appropriate method of fusing body and mind together so that they form a unity which is scarcely to be questioned. This unity creates a psychological disposition which makes possible intuitions that transcend consciousness.”
