Every animal on this planet has an inner instinct or insight. We’ve heard stories about Elephants grabbing people and running for high ground as a tsunami approaches all in danger. For centuries, scientists have said to watch animals for predictions of bad weather.
According to the USGS in an article entitled “Animals & Earthquake Prediction“:
The earliest reference we have to unusual animal behavior prior to a significant earthquake is from Greece in 373 BC. Rats, weasels, snakes, and centipedes reportedly left their homes and headed for safety several days before a destructive earthquake. Anecdotal evidence abounds of animals, fish, birds, reptiles, and insects exhibiting strange behavior anywhere from weeks to seconds before an earthquake. However, consistent and reliable behavior prior to seismic events, and a mechanism explaining how it could work, still eludes us.
As human beings we are part of that animal kingdom with an inner ability to sense the unseen subtle changes in energy around us. But many have lost or turned away from these natural instincts. They have degraded those who do believe in these inner instincts, ridiculed those who are in-tune with these abilities and vilify those who try to explain and teach others to connect to and talk to their natural intuition on a daily basis.
Whither you call this instinct, a natural aptitude, gut instinct, a sixth sense, a psychic gift or an intuitive ability, we all have the ability to see into our own lives from a higher perspective. Everyone on this planet is “psychic” to some degree, we merely don’t realize it or we don’t call it by that name. But everyone has the ability to recognize, develop and become in tune to their own natural inner instincts.
In Today’s Tarot Meditation message I pulled The Priestess which gave us the message about why our inner instinct is important and how we can utilize it. The Priestess reminds us that our spiritual leadership isn’t something we set aside during the week and only bring out on weekends, at ritual or during ceremonies to celebrate our faith. But rather that she’s always needed to bring about the complete balance and cycle of Mind/Body/Spirit.
It is within our greater Spirit that our natural instincts comes from. It’s a force of energy that we sense, not through physical senses, but higher spiritual aptitude. The hierarchy of Mind/Body/Spirit is not separate, one above the other. But rather a balanced circle that creates a dependence of one to the other and back again.
The Spiritual Consciousness helps direct the Mind to positive thought and choice which in turn directs the physical Body into action, which in turn creates the energy the Spiritual Consciousness can see, understand and work with. This is the circle of all things in nature. We need all three aspects of self, working in balance to “feel” the subtle energies around us, decipher their meaning and act accordingly to improve our condition and advance our mission.
But how do we do this? How do we get in touch with that inner instinct and use it in balance with Mind and Body?
The easiest way to develop a strong connection between Mind/Body/Spirit is to:
- Acknowledge its existence
- Accept its part of our animal/human nature
- Discover its ability within us
- Develop its talents
- Strengthen its connection to our physical consciousness
How do you do all this? Acknowledge and acceptance are the easy part. Discovering what these sixth senses are is simply a matter of taking a little effort to read and research. Developing your own talents and strengthening your conscious connection is your personal inner insight is created through meditation.
