The Seventh Insight Experience Study
In The Celestine Prophecy, the Seventh Insight is called ” Engaging the Flow.” It builds on the previous insight, “Clearing the Past,” which describes how we unconsciously gain security in stressful times through mechanical behaviors, our particular way of controlling others. Once we have become aware of this behavior, we can stabilize our Connection and remain in regular contact with the true source of all energy. It is then that we can discover our life’s work or mission and start making our meaningful contribution to the world.
With our mission in mind, and as our lives move forward, The Seventh Insight deals with the process of consciously evolving yourself to stay alert to every coincidence, aimed at our ultimate calling. Sometimes, when things have a special meaning, they jump out at you, entering your consciousness in a forceful way, coming to you as guidance. It is only as we continually engage the flow that we can accomplish our life’s work.
Once we begin to pursue a connection with our own mission, guidance comes to point the way for us toward our ultimate destiny. Guidance happens through the process of constant questioning that leads to a greater synchronistic flow.
How To Notice Intuition
When a question arises in our minds, it focuses our thoughts. Our thoughts take the shape around this question in the form of night dreams, daydreams, and intuition that then lead us forward to the answers that we are seeking.
In this buildup of consciousness, we become aware of our Intuitive Guidance at a higher level. Through practicing MINDFULNESS, we can discern between ordinary, calculative thoughts and the more mystical, Intuitive thoughts and feelings.
Here’s the key difference:
Calculative thoughts are the words we consciously think to ourselves when processing a general problem. This is a significant thought process, but this is not Intuition.
Intuitions are spontaneous notions that appear to come from nowhere. They seem just to occur to us with a hint of inspiration and discovery, yet we didn’t think of them, in the calculative sense. While our egos may well be in the habit of taking credit for such thoughts (“aren’t we smart”), upon closer inspection, we can see they are obtained from some deeper source within us.
Intuitions come from a superior part of our intelligence. They naturally appear in the back of our minds as clarifying ideas on how to proceed. In short, they are ideas that sometimes seem too random, spontaneous, and not logical, but upon greater interpretation they can be observed to apply perfectly to the situation at hand.
Once we begin to identify guiding intuitions in this way, we realize how we have been missing them in the past. When clarifying the different types of thought, ask yourself, “Why did I just think of this now?”
