Intuition: A Change from Logic to Heart Based Feeling

In my last post, Are These Earthquakes and Tsunamis the Beginning of 2012?, I talked about how we are presently going through a "Shift" or change where one era is ending (The Age of Pisces) and a new Era is beginning (The Age of Aquarius).  This new age is changing the world in many ways.

During this time many of the old ways of doing things will end and new ways will emerge.

One of these new ways is a change in the way many of us view the world. Currently most people use logic to make decisions.  This is often called intellectualizing.  The problem with intellectualizing is that it often does not allow us to use one of our greatest abilities, which is our intuition.

Our intuition, which is felt in the heart, gives us the ability to feel what is right or wrong in any given situation. When we "feel" the truth of all the thoughts, emotions, words, and actions we experience,  we are able to decide what is in the best interest of ourselves and others.

In the past, we made decisions based on logic without intuition.  The problem with logic is that it can be twisted to hide the truth.  Let's say growing up, you were around people who said it was okay and socially acceptable to hunt animals.  Deep down inside you may have felt this was somehow wrong and not for you.  Using only logic, you might be able to justify this action by subduing your feelings, and deciding that if everyone is doing it then it must be okay to do.  Unfortunately, when we only use logic we often ignore our intuition.  When you listen to your intuition you understand that what is right or wrong based on how you feel rather than what you think.  

Remember to think with logic but decide with intuition because your intuition will never lie to you.  It will always tell you the truth based on how it makes you feel.

When enough people on the planet Earth begin to regularly use their intuition when making decisions, the world will experience a change or shift in consciousness that will transform our reality.  Think about it, if everyone started feeling, instead of thinking, about how what they think, feel, and do affects others, then we will all start being more considerate of each other and the world will be a better place.

As I said in my last blog, the old era is about thinking and being selfish.  This new era is about feeling and Oneness.  It is about the world becoming aware that we are all one and that the energies we give out in our thoughts, words, and actions actually come back to us to create the reality we experience.  By becoming aware of how we feel, we will become aware of the energy we are choosing for ourselves.

How will this change happen?  Although it  is currently happening on a widespread scale, it is also happening internally one person at a time.  This change will begin to become apparent when enough people have chosen to start focusing on themselves to be the best person they can be.  Once enough people start to do this it will start a chain reaction and the world as we know it will transform into a much better place for everyone to live.

The singer Michael Jackson gave us a great example to do this in his song, "The Man in the Mirror".

"I'm Starting With The Man In
The Mirror
I'm Asking Him To Change
His Ways
And No Message Could Have
Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World
A Better Place
(If You Wanna Make The
World A Better Place)
Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change."

(These are partial lyrics)

In these lyrics Michael Jackson means that this change starts with each of  us doing our job to change ourself which collectively will change the world.  So instead of focusing on what others can do to be better, focus on what you can do better.

So the next time you have to make a decision, use your mind to think, but use your intuition to decide if that thought, word, or action "feels" right to you.  

When you feel the truth in things you allow yourself to align with things that feel good to you.  This in turn allows you to do things that will bring positive energy back to your life, which in turn will create a more positive reality for you to experience.  You see the energy you give out to others always comes back to you.

Are These Earthquakes and Tsunamis the Beginning of 2012?

Here is the heading and an excerpt of an article by the Huffington Post on 3/11/11.

Japan Earthquake 2011:

8.9 Magnitude Earthquake Hits, 30-Foot Tsunami Triggered

The above headlines shows the massive earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan last week.  It is obvious to me as I write this blog, that this is a huge national crisis for people of Japan.  Please take a minute out of your day to pray or think positive thoughts for the people who are affected by this disaster.  The power of collectively focused minds can produce miracles.
Japan is just the most recent catastrophe in a string of increasingly frequent and violent natural events happening on our planet.  Is it just me or do tsunamis and high magnitude earthquakes throughout the world seem to be becoming a normal occurrence in this day and age?  In recent memory, I can remember massive earthquakes and tsunamis in Malaysia in 2004 and Haiti in 2010. Recently Chile and New Zealand have also been hit hard by this phenomenon as well.  When I was growing up a tsunami or tidal wave was some mythological event of nature that we had heard about but never seen.  These days they seem as common as the seasonal hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico. What could be causing all this?
The Mayans predicted that in 2012 the planet Earth will align the stars and it signify the end of one era and the beginning of another.  How that change will happen is unknown but "change" itself is the star of the show.   This change is currently happening now and will continue to come to us in many forms both in nature and in everyday life.  All you have to do is to look around at the world with an open mind and you could quite easily come the conclusion that widespread worldwide change is happening right now.  Look at the middle east. Egypt, Libya, and a many other nations are currently in period of extreme unrest.  Old regimes are suddenly ending.  If you look around I bet you can find massive amounts of change happening right now in just about every aspect of your life.  I know I can see it both in my personal life and on a world wide level.  
Within the last 115 years or so, it was discovered by science that everything is made of energy. Matter and energy are both energy just in different forms.  Since everything is made up of the same energy, there are those who also believe that everything, living or not, has a spirit or a soul, and that includes the planet Earth itself.  The spirit name for the planet Earth is called Gaia.  This is another name for "Mother Nature".  It's been said that the change of 2012 is more about the evolution of the planet Earth itself rather than the evolution of the people living on it.  Gaia is evolving and in doing so it is changing in many ways.  Some of the side effects of this change are the natural disasters we are experiencing.  Whether you believe this or not it is hard to deny that something very radical is happening in our world right now.  Could this be Gaia's way of telling the people of Earth that she doesn't approve of the way she has been treated by mankind?
Astronomically and metaphysically speaking, the change that we are experiencing is the physical effects of the end of the Age of Pisces and the beginning of the Age of Aquarius.  What does that mean?  Simply put it is the end of the age of the ego and the beginning of the age of heart and intuition. I will be writing another blog post later on this change but for now know that the old way, that is ending now, is the way of selfishness and fighting.  The new world will be more loving where people are more considerate and caring of each other. 

In order for this new era to emerge many of the old ways will have to first end. This "change" can come in many different forms. One of those forms is natural disasters.  Another is political unrest and regime change.  Other may be a great recession after many years of  excess and living out of balance.  On a personal level it can come  as a sickness or as a personal crisis that makes you immediately change your outlook and actions.  The bottom line is change is in the air.

My point in writing this blog is so more people can connect the dots to all the individual events that are on our news each night to see a bigger picture of what is going on.  Many people are waiting for one big event to happen in 2012.  I instead choose to see that 2012 is happening right now before our eyes.  I also believe that even though their will be great tragedies, like the natural disaster in Japan, there will also be positive change that will eventually create a better world for everyone.  Whether we are aware of it or not, and whether we like it or not, we are living during some very unique times.  

Stay tuned for more blogs about this change and the Universal Laws.  My book on the Universal Laws is with the publisher and should be out in Fall 2011.
