"Night Vision" - How To Make Decisions Based On Intuition
How to make decisions based on intuition when you are experiencing testing times, when there is a conflict between your intuition and your conscious mind, and especially when this is because of adverse external circumstances?
In the depths of personal adverse external circumstances, and after 6 months of deepening anxiety over an issue, I eventually experienced a moment of blinding clarity, the essence of which is as follows:
Keep it very simple
The ego-mind loves complexity and confusion, whereas our higher self only knows simplicity and clarity.
Review your checklist
Check that you have been doing all the "right" things, and are not experiencing any blockages because of any omissions, for example:
(1) Check your beliefs and values – are these positive and supportive, have you brought to consciousness and replaced your negative and limiting beliefs?
(2) Are you focused on the manifestation of a clearly defined and visualised outcome?
Are you managing your emotional states and maintaining a state of being (or vibration) that is in tune with that outcome?
Do you feel it?
Are you maintaining an attitude of belief in a positive outcome?
Do you expect the positive outcome?
(3) Are you practising spiritual disciplines such as meditation, gratitude and thankfulness, giving of your time, money and knowledge?
Are you listening to your intuition daily?
Do you have a clear sense of your purpose in life?
Has your intuition guided you in your present circumstances up to this moment?
How to make decisions by the night vision of your intuition
If you can honestly say yes to these questions and feel that you have "ticks in all the right boxes" then here are my suggestions:
What to do now?
Ask your higher self (via your intuition) on a daily basis: "What should I be doing now?"
The answer is most likely to be either something that is "right in front of your nose" and fairly mundane such as "mow the lawn" or helping somebody by giving them your time and attention.
Often the supplementary question is: "Who can I help today?"
Why the drama?
The simple answer is this:
In my own personal case the answer was: "To develop night vision".
For anyone choosing to tackle life from a spiritual perspective, and who is serious about it, then sooner or later your higher self will create a set of circumstances which will cause your normal "daylight vision" to cease to be effective.
In other words, your circumstances seen with the conscious mind through the lens of rationality, logic and commonsense will cease to make sense. We encounter the inbuilt design flaw.
The purpose of these circumstances is to cause and enable you to learn to see and ultimately to live and make decisions by the "night vision" of your intuition.
