Power of Integrating
I can deduce that people lose interest in intuition because their conscious minds can’t correctly interpret the melange of symbol, sound, and feeling delivered to them. Intuition is always right but its language is not always as clear as a yes or no. When my logic reasoning is stronger towards a particular outcome than my intuitive reasoning, I can investigate further with the power of integrating. Sometimes, our knowledge of a particular subject can limit our intuition in only a particular direction, blocking out other useful information. This is the essence of integrating our logic and intuitive observations.
Intuition should add to good judgment, not replace it. I have come to learn that I should not rely on intuition alone to make decisions but simply to add information to what I already know and feel. It’s good to learn how intuitive information can be clearly separated from intellectual and emotional information. Instead of getting lost, intuitive data can be matched against what our senses tell us and what our thinking tells us and what our feelings tell us, giving us a powerful system of checks and balances. The point is to keep our intuition separate from our knowledge and feelings initially, so that it can later be integrated to greater effect.
A friend of mine shared a personal experience with me about his wife whose sickness defied medical solution, but one day while sitting down and dosing off, he saw in a brief dream the ingredients he should prepare and apply on her body to heal her. The point is that empirical or intellectual information and intuitive information sometimes have to be integrated to improve our chance of survival.
