What is Intuitive Consciousness?
It's a State of Being
Consciousness, or to be more exact, intuitive consciousness, is a condition of psychic vigilance. It is the opposite of being unaware and asleep. It isn’t self-consciousness. It is beyond self. But it’s easily discovered, ridiculously subtle to experience and best of all, always available.
Most people go their entire lives lost in unconsciousness, rarely coming to the reality of living now. They’ll defend, even to the death, against waking up, making excuses for the irrational thinking that results and the unwholesome behavior which always accompanies failing to live presently. It is a hypnotic trance suffered by everyone any time that we come under the spell of unconsciousness.
Conversely, once you become intuitively conscious, it becomes immediately clear to you that you are. You see how unconscious you’ve previously been, and how living in that illusory realm has led to mistakes, life-errors and problems all through life. This can be a startling discovery. It removes all the blame you’ve ever placed on others all along.
A stubborn Ego will wage a resistance to this awakening. But It falls once a person earnestly yearns to get free and becomes willing to commit to living awake and aware.
To experience this kind of consciousness is as simple as stepping back out of the stream of thought, coming to exist in the present, to now—as you once did when you were a little child before whatever happened to take you away from it ever occurred. There is nothing to do more than that, and everything you need thereafter to live wholesomely well is spontaneously added with no further effort.
This present is the only reality. Your life depends on coming to live here and now. Your children's lives depend on it. The future of humanity depends on it. No human being can live as long or well as they were designed, without first coming to conscious awareness, connecting with intuitive discipline.
As simple and accessible as it is, consciousness is also difficult to hold onto without knowing just how. It isn’t automatic. It requires a certain vigilance that’s so easy to discover, and because of that simplicity, it can seem difficult.
That’s only because life is full of distractions constantly pressuring us to let go of our awareness and to drift into the fantasy of a dream state.
Anytime you’re carried away by thoughts, to imagine past or future times, you’ve abandoned the present and begun to exist in an unconscious dream.
This is an emotionally vulnerable condition where you become instantly influenced by memories, people, and events—even beyond your own best interests.
Leaving the conscious realm, becoming tangled in thinking, is analogous to hitting the snooze button on an alarm clock. In that moment, though you are briefly awakened, you return to spiritual slumber, once again becoming defenseless from human passion and the adverse effects that emotionality has on the body and mind. You age. You become ill. You die. Before your time.
Whenever lost in thought, an unseen force within, many call It Ego, exploits a lack of awareness. It rises to take control and life becomes unmanageable. You compulsively relinquish the capacity to regulate either life or will.
This is a mesmerized state you do not even realize you are in. You could spend an entire lifetime adrift in a sea of thought and never know it. You’d miss life, failing in the purpose for your existence.
When you meditate non-contemplatively, outside of the realm of intellect, you automatically come back to living in the awakened, present state. And with a continued practice, you find that you can regularly step back from the morass of the ego-centric intellect more and more until consciousness increasingly becomes part of your daily life.
Then, one day you find that you are conscious all the time.
For most people, it takes years to reach this constant state of enlightenment. No one can willfully determine the pace. But a little intuitive consciousness goes a very long way.
If instead of attaching to and responding with instinct you could become more corresponded with intuition, things become quite different. If you could just become awake and aware, God-conscious, for a few moments each day, the effects on your thinking and behavior would have an immediate and astounding effect on your life, and the lives of those around you.
This is exactly what happens once you commit to intuitive consciousness.
You avoid much of the heartache, maladies and lack of productive creativity that afflict most of humanity. Most importantly, your spiritual growth toward God would be spontaneous and certain, with just this humblest beginning.
