Silence and Your Intuition

Intuition is known by many names such as hunches, gut feelings, psychic guidance, inner voice, voice of the heart, voice of the higher self, insights, etc. By nature, woman are naturally intuned to them than man though both man & women can harness this latent gift within them for day to day living. Intuition is the ability for one to sense the feeling or guidance beyond the normal logical & rational thinking process.

Developing this faculty within us that is untapped can be highly beneficial because it is highly resourceful & can be an enriching experience for one who learns to use it. Mystics or Sufis use it daily for interpreting mystical information. For a layman, it is the perfect tool that can be used to the fulfillment of your life's destiny.

In schools, we are taught what to think, what to remember, how to study & pass exams with good grades. All of these are essential to earn a living but hardly are we taught how to think?
Do we hear anyone telling us of the importance of tuning to one's own feelings to seek higher guidance or how one can benefit by so doing?

The person who is endowed with such an ability usually has a calm & composed feeling. This is unlike the noisy chatterbox mind which shoots unwanted thoughts without seeking approval & leaves the person with a worn out feeling for entertaining such thoughts. It is not possible to hear your inner voice if you are indulging in negative thoughts & emotions such as fear, hatred, vengeance, jealousy, regret, guilt, depression, lethargy, shame or dissatisfaction.

How about changing these unwanted & useless emotions? For instance, can you change anger or hatred into feelings of Love? If the answer is yes, then you may go on. Try changing vengeance into forgiveness. From fear to fearlessness. Remember the 2nd Ten Commandments in my earlier postings & what it had to say about feelings of fear? Continue to make a conscious effort to monitor your thought process as you progress. Change your feelings of depression into joy. Depression can be overcome by spending time close to places of nature such as a lake, beach, hilly resorts. It can also be overcomed by simple meditation or listening to calm & soothing music. Try japa or chanting mantras. If you are a member of the ISKCON movement, you should already be aware of the Maha Mantra. The "Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare; Hare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare" is a great tool to open up your Heart.

So, what's the big deal with this "intuition" thing you may ask. Remember, December 26th, 2004. There was a particular catastrophe that shook the world. There was this little known word called "Tsunami" became known to many throughout the world amongst the litterate & the illiterate. There was something interesting about the way the animals behaved prior to the catastrophe. Animals are more tuned in to the nature and are more receptive to intuition. In Thailand, elephants were reported to be seen fleeing towards the hilly area before the onset of Tsunami. How did they know? Premonition? In northern Malaysia, in the district of Kuala Muda, the excited locals were busy filling their buckets with fishes that were rushing to the shore. What were they running from? How did they know? In a newspaper article, there were some mention about animals having ultrasonic hearing which is not audible to mankind. However, Ultrasonic, Supersonic or Panasonic does not matter :) What matters is that humans have six senses, the highest of all the animals & are not fully utilising them for day to day affairs.
What a waste of potential?

How can you benefit from the ability of intuition:

1. Choice of friends: You will be able to know & differenciate from friend to foe.
2. Business: Is this business worth investing? You will be guided.
3. Career: Knowing is it better to stick to the current job or is it time to move to different pastures.
4. Decision making: Which choice is the best alternative. You just have to listen to your heart & your intuiton will guide you.
5. Stock market: Is this the best time to invest in this portfolio or should you wait or choose from a different one. Anyway, the market is currently Bearish.
6. Aversion from dangers: You may be guided by hunches that tell you not to take a particular trip that might end up in tragedy. ( In the distant past, fleets of rats have been seen coming out of the sea ship before taking it's last journey which end up in tragedy. How did they know? Would you like to benefit from the same ability? )
7. As a trustworthy guide: You need not see a "Shaman", "Bomoh", "Medicine man" or a medium for your guide. Trust your instincts. It is more powerful.....and you have it deep beneath you. Isn't it time now to tap on this unused potential within you?


Learn to silence the mind. The mind is always busy updating you with many thoughts. Silence the thoughts & you will remain calm & open to the higher sources. No need to delve on past issues & harp on what is beyond repairable. Live in the present moment. Intuition comes to you from the energy center of the heart & the brain center.
"He is knowledge, He is the object of knowledge, and He is the goal of knowledge. He is situated in everyone's Heart." - Bhagavad Gita - 13:18

If you have been reading so far & would like to begin harnessing this energy within you, it is never too late to start. Here are simple & practical method that you can use anywhere & anytime. You don't need special clothes or special membership application to do this. It is completely FREE!

Simple steps to build your Intuition:

So, finally if you would like to develop intuition, here's what you can do. First, pick a quiet place where you would not be disturbed. Then, close your eyes & begin by chanting "ooooo.....". It is like chanting "OM" without the "mmmm" at the end. Make sure you do it softly & gently and don't chant loudly. It is enough if you hear it alone. The others won't benefit by listening to it.
As your eyes are closed, make a conscious effort to FEEL which part of your body resonates as you chant "ooo....". You will be surprised!

Once you are used to doing this for some time, you can chant with your eyes open too. Just make sure no one's watching you do that in public places. You will get strange looks from the public :)
It is best done when you are alone.

Just practice this daily for 20 minutes would be suffice.

Good Luck in your new journey.
Peace be with you.

"I was seated close to him [Aurobindo], simply, like that, on the floor. He was sitting on a chair with a table in front of him, and on the other side of the table was Richard, and they were talking. Myself, I didn't listen. I sat there just like that. I don't know how long they went on talking, but suddenly I felt within me as it were a great Force -- Peace! Silence! massive. It came, did like this (a gesture of sweeping at the level of the forehead), descended like that, and stopped here (the chest). And when they finished talking, I stood up and left. And then I noticed that I didn't have a thought in my mind -- that I knew nothing any more, understood nothing any more, that I was absolutely in a complete blank. Then I gave thanks to the Lord, and thanked Sri Aurobindo in my heart."3

There are four grades in intuition, the elementary form of supramental truth:

Intuition proper, sporadic and irregular, which brings isolated elements. It gives the impression of remembering a latent, past or subconscient knowledge.
Discernment Here there is a process, a non-intellectual work which accepts certain elements and rejects others.
Inspiration Something comes from outside and expands within. Analogy of a voice which speaks in you.
Revelation Analogy of a vision.

Sri Aurobindo
