|There is an enormous amount of written work, from psychics, mediums and spiritualists, detailing the things most of us don't 'see'. Of the information given to us of Spirit Guides, Angels, Fairies etc, it's absolutley understandable that the sceptic in the street refuses to believe that any is true. Look at it this way... If the human race were all born without physical sight..... so it's 'normal' to be sightless... so in fact we wouldn't even have a word for sight (as we would know nothing of it!) but if, every once in a while, someone was born with sight.... Would we believe what they were telling us? How would you understand colour, what words could be used to help describe something that isn't tangible! The same with the sky, a stunning rainbow or the beautiful sight of the milky way splashed across an awesome night sky. The sighted person would have an impossible task getting us to believe them. There would be followers.... believers.... to carry the message that this stunning world had so much more than initially perseved. But they don't know, they're your proverbial blind followers! So are these sighted people being truthful? Or have they found a way to be noticed, to be different and stand out from the crowd. It would be so easy to repeat everything another sighted person had said, but with a different 'spin' so as to be seen as genuine.|
So how many psychics are doing the same? Let me make one thing clear at this point, I absolutley know that there is such a thing as psychic ability. How do I know? Because I've experienced it on numerous occasions. But that doesn't mean I now blindly believe it all! What's proven to me by experience is as far as I go, I'm open minded to the rest and maybe I'll experience those too one day, I'm hopeful I will.
|According to Professor Iain Stewart on the BBC 2 documentary ĎHow to Grow a Planetí, grasses thrived after the asteroid strike wiped out vast areas of trees 65 million years ago. These had seed heads, at that time, that dropped seed (or grain, as in wheat) at the slightest touch, therefore ensuring easy dispersal. However, as a cereal crop for people to farm, thatís not so good. Grain dropping to the ground as soon as the plant is knocked is very hard to collect, so would not have been considered suitable for farming. So my theory is that it wasnít found to be the important food source we know it to be... Until.... And hereís the interesting bit from Prof. Stewart.... In one area a strain of wheat was found to have evolved differently. The plant held onto the ripened grain, allowing it to be gathered up and have a controlled collection of the grain. Pretty neat. |
So, consider this... What if all living things have kind of awareness. What if the planet is actually looking after us? I donít mean an intelligence, but a connection of where we are as a race. Is this radical seed dispersal turnaround an example of Nature seeing us with a staple food source problem and evolving a solution for us... We were seen to be missing something crucial to our continuation and a solution was presented to us? Well, I donít see it as any more Ďout thereí as a theory than believing a sentient, omnipotent character twitched his finger....! There is no scientifically noted explanation as to why the plant changed
Scientists are only just starting to experiment with how our unconscious mind works and touch on itís phenomenal abilities. Finally technology is beginning to provide indisputable evidence that there is so much more we can do, that we perceive. Maybe soon theyíll prove a planetary link with nature and many questions concerning flora and fauna, will be answered. Like animal migration; like how a species of plant and animal co-exist to protect each other and so on. Is this all part of the so called Ďawakeningí weíre entering into? Hmm...
|Courage V. Intuition.|
|There is a deep-seated misconception that, being intuitive, is a gift that a only minority of people have. Certainly, itís true to say itís far stronger in some than others, but I question whether itís the intuition that comes through as either weak or strong.... Or is it, in fact, the courage needed to trust that intuition..... that is either weak or strong. Perhaps intuition - the 6th sense - is just Ďthereí, for everyone. But either you develop the ability to respond intuitively to what you are hearing, feeling, and sensing on the inside - or you donít. Responding to something thatís probably such a fleeting thought or feeling, takes courage. Where does that courage come from? Self-esteem. Do you have the courage to trust your feelings? Are we so used to outside influences to tell us what is right or wrong that weíve forgotten how to listen from within? |
Our lives are very protected within the modern world, from birth we are surrounded by so many procedures to keep us safe that, as a species, we no longer need to live on our wits alone.... or our intuition. It takes a strong sense of self and an ability to not only take action on intuition, but to be responsible for that action too. Within my comfortable western, developed world I donít Ďneedí to intuitively protect myself. If something major goes wrong thereíll be help to fall back on. I donít have to survive on courage and wits. No doubt there are parts of the world where this cannot be said, so is their intuition used more often because of this? If I had needed my intuition as I grew up, Iím sure it would be stronger than it is today. As it is, I only started to pay attention to those thoughts and feelings when I became a mature adult. Not because I needed to, but because I had the time and interest to experiment and practice. This led me to tarot cards, which appealed as I was aware of them and they had a familiar feel - growing up, as I did, with the family playing cards. Iíve seen many tarot readers reel off text book interpretations when giving a reading.... and this works to a point. But, when intuition is tapped into, interpretation gains a whole new level. So then weíre back to courage v. intuition. Do you have the courage to trust the feelings youíre receiving as you read the cards? Well, nothing is better than practice. Itís no different to other skills and abilities. As results become more consistent, then self-esteem and the courage to promote oneís abilities increases in leaps and bounds..... intuition is given free rein and, as a direct result, is deemed to be getting stronger. But, is it the intuition?.... or the courage...
