When a true, intuitive feeling comes to you, it contains so much power that it can move mountains and transform worlds. When it is birthed from the infinite space within you, nothing can hold it back.
It yearns to move, to express, to be free and be released in to the world through your creativity. This feeling is a sense of knowing. Of certainty. A calm, strong certainty that has no reason or logic behind it.
I often receive this feeling as a sense – a sense that something is coming. While I cannot predict the future I have a way of knowing when something is about to unfold. I get a feeling that brews within me and builds gently over a period of time.
To most people this may seem strange, as we generally rely more heavily on what we can see rather than feel.
And it is because of this that it is the times of your life when your feeling contradicts your circumstances that are the most challenging.
When Feeling Contradicts Circumstance
I recently received an inner sense that things were going to be shifting and changing for me and growing to a new level.
I was receiving visions, inspired ideas and strong senses about what life would soon look like and where I would be heading.
And while I had this strong inner sense that felt reassuring, supportive and totally possible, when I looked to my world, there was a complete incongruence.
I could see no evidence of my powerful feeling being manifested in my world. According to my eyes it in fact seemed that the opposite was unfolding. Things seems to be falling apart. Crumbling. As hard as I fought, struggled and forced I could not hold them together. Old structures were changing. Forms were shifting. Life felt like it was collapsing around me.
And as I watched this chaos unfold, I still felt a strong inner sense that everything would be fine. When I closed my eyes and retreated into the delicate inner world of my feelings and imagination I saw beautiful images that soothed my soul. But when I opened my eyes I was faced with a grim reality.
It was when I was in the midst of it one day – curled over on my yoga mat, tears streaming down my face, my head on the floor and palms facing upwards in totally surrender, that I got it.
I heard my guidance speak up. And it whispered, lovingly;
“Feeling is more real than circumstance”
Follow Your Feeling
My circumstances were crumbling because they needed to. They needed to melt in order to create space for the delicious new reality that was being formed.
It did not matter what my reality showed me. That was an illusion anyway. All that mattered was my connection to that deep inner knowing that was leading me step by step to where I needed to be.
It is in these moments that we must remember. We must listen to the synchronistic signs, the little whispers of our guidance and the feeling that tugs at our heart. We must remember that who we are is the feeling that moves this body. That is all that matters.
This is our work. To take our power out of our reality. To release our dependence from the outside world. To be in a state of child-like surrender to our inner wisdom and know that if we can feel it, then it is real.
And no matter what you see with your eyes, know that what you feel is more real than anything outside of you. Trust your inner knowing. Trust the feeling that moves you. That is all you need to do.
