The Four Levels of Intuition by Simone Wright, author of First Intelligence

Learning to develop and trust our intuitive intelligence is more important now than it ever has been before. According to a recent UCLA study, we are exposed to a tsunami of information that amounts to over 174 newspapers full of data per day. That is more than 5 times the amount of information we were exposed to just 20 years ago.  Included in this deluge of data are countless opinions, endless streams of expert advice and a myriad of gurus and guides ...

Be calm in your heart. This is the most powerful understanding you must carry with you when developing your intuitive intelligence. A calm and peaceful heart creates a calm and peaceful mind, and a calm mind is the center of all creative power.
Peace is the single most potent foundational energy in a life of mastery, and it is the energetic source of all creation. Peace is the access point for all evolutionary information that we will ever need. Mystics ...

Perception - An Excerpt from First Intelligence by Simone Wright

The third facet of the foundation of intuitive intelligence is perception, which is defined as the ability to see, hear, or become aware of something through the senses. Perception is the interface between our biology and the environment; it is the conscious awareness of our external world as it is experienced through our physical senses. Perception begins even before we are born. It occupies a powerful position in our lives because it influences every action we take so that we can ...

“If there is no wind, row.” – Japanese proverb

Determination is a powerful force. Many people fail to achieve their dreams simply because they give up after the first try. A friend recently told me about how she and her husband were separated years ago. He had been a workaholic, judgmental and controlling. One day he slapped her, and the next day, she took their infant son and moved across the country. They were apart for two years, and she began to date other men. One day he woke up, quit his job and followed her. He got them apartments in the same complex, and then spent years devoting himself to her and his son. Eventually, things began to shift. He refused to give up, and in time they got back together. They’ve been happily married for many years since. When we’re strongly determined, the odds may be against us, but that doesn’t stop us from moving forward.

Consider, Decide, And Do

Consider, decide, and do. Think about what’s most important to you, and then put those thoughts into action.

Take notice of the doubts and fears, learn what they have to teach, and then let them go. Make the commitment to move forward no matter what, and honor that commitment each day.

Achievement is challenging but not particularly complicated. It’s a matter of consistently putting your values, goals, desires and dreams into action.

It’s up to you to make your life the way you want it to be. Every day is filled with opportunities for you to make meaningful progress.

Don’t settle for being overcome with regret, wondering what might have been. Use this day, this month, this year to create the best of what you know can be.

Consider what truly matters, decide with passion and commitment to go for it, and do what you must do to make it happen. Today is your time to live with purpose, so go ahead and make it count.

— Ralph Marston

Daily Inspirational Quote August 31 2014

“No trumpets sound when the important decisions of our life are made.
Destiny is made known silently.”
- Agnes DeMille

If you look back for the turning points that proved pivotal in your life, you’ll realize that very rarely were you aware of how momentous your decisions would prove to be. This is one reason to remain open to guidance from Spirit, to tune in regularly and to maintain an open mind and heart. When we’re regularly dialoguing with Spirit, we act on little nudges and intuitions, any of which may open big new doors and lead us in whole new directions.

Of Webs, Boxes and Boundaries

Margaret Wheatley shares: "When my children were small, I had a slogan on my refrigerator that read: 'If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy.' Perhaps that was my children's first lesson in systems thinking. We adults learn this, too. If others are struggling, we experience the consequences of their struggle. If others don't feel safe, we aren't safe. Great teachers have been trying to teach us this for thousands of years. Buddhism teaches that any one thing is here because of everything else. The great American naturalist John Muir said that if we tug on any one part of the web of life, we get the whole web. But we've been very slow to learn the lesson." Read on to learn how to see beyond the boxes and into the interconnected web of life, and how doing so can contribute to the well-being of all.
