During a recent discussion with a friend the conversation ended with the comment that we would not be seeing eye to eye on the subject. That resolution caused me to consider what is ultimately implied or actually intended by the statement. It is clear that no two people will see the world the same. In fact two people can watch the same event and come away 'seeing' two completely different things. That is because we all see life from our own point of view. But seeing life from different perspectives has another implication that involves seeing life with different perceptions.
Several friends, including my husband have said to me that I often see things that others do not. Today
I openly embrace the remark because I know they are referring to my powers of intuition (with the exception of my husband who claims I'm hallucinating; a remark for which he will pay!). But I was not always comfortable accepting or articulating my natural ability to perceive the subconscious energies that flow between us. In the past I doubted and discounted my own abilities to 'see' beyond the surface of people, places and things. That uncertainty not only inhibited me from following my 'instincts' in decision making but also kept me from developing my intuitive skills.
Today, I realize my vision to see past the visual may be unsettling for some, refreshing to others and a novelty to skeptics. But it remains an important part of my psyche and a valuable tool in evaluating the people and events of my life. Besides, unsettling people prepares them for change and who couldn't use some refreshment these days. The skeptics just may not be ready to accept that which they too have within their grasp. The intuition with which we were all born.
My message is really quite simple, learn to see what you may be missing. If you are unaware of your own intuition find your path to discovery. If you have always had 'feelings' but doubted their validity develop your power to trust. And if you're currently using your powers of intuition share what you know with others. And don't be surprise if the next time we meet I see something in you that you may not see in yourself.
