“Your intuition is the voice of the present moment. It lives in the present moment. It doesn’t live in the past, it doesn’t live in the future.”
– Amir Zoghi –
I’m a big fan of Amir Zoghi. I first went to his Intuitive Warrior event in Sydney around this time last year and I finished 2012 off with his WTF (Wisdom, Truth, Freedom) event, which completely and utterly blew my mind.
I have followed his fantastic Truth Blog and webisodes this year and I have also sampled his online OMG programme. I’m going to attend his Intuitive Warrior event again next week in Sydney, because every time I hear him speak about intuition and the importance of following the feeling in the present moment, it further cements the knowing that I know is already there and allows it to become stronger and more powerful than the voice in my head, the ego, that which wishes to control things, that which gets stuck in the past or the future, that which struggles to trust in the Universe.
I have just come across a fantastic talk that he gave on Intuition on the Soul Sessions website. You can view it below or go directly to the Soul Sessions website and register, which I can highly recommend doing so, because you will get access to a plethora of wonderful talks and conversations with some of the most brilliant minds around the world from the spiritual and philosophical space (Deepak, Wayne Dyer, Joe Dispenza and so on).
Despite the fact that the talk is entitled ‘Secret Mens Business’ it is a talk on the power of intuition and the importance of following the feeling, which is essentially what Amir represents.
Here are some of the key take outs from his talk and what they mean to me in my life.
Purpose is in who we are being.
Amir states that ‘purpose is not found in what you do, it’s found in who you are.‘ This is an interesting one, because throughout my entire life I had always thought that it was related to what you do. Since I have started to follow my intuition more and spend time doing the things that I love, it is not the act of ‘doing’ those things that bring me joy and happiness in the present moment, it is in fact, who I am ‘being’ in that moment that raises my vibrations, brings me into the flow and has me feel a sense of complete and utter peacefulness in the now. Much like I’m feeling right now, as I write this blog post to you.
Intuition has zero logic.
Amir also talks about how ‘your intuition expresses itself through a feeling of knowing.’ This is interesting to me, because the more I connect with my inner knowing, my inner ‘tuition’, rather than trying to understand things logically, the freer I feel. The more I trust that I am the Universe, and that I know all I ever need to know, it frees me up to listen to my intuition and trust that it will guide me in the direction to go in, in every moment. Rather than feeling the need to control and understand everything.
Your intuition is the voice of the present moment. It lives in the present moment. It doesn’t live in the past, it doesn’t live in the future.
And I know this to be true, because everything else is an illusion, created by the constructs of your mind, your ego, the voice in your head that you think is you, but is in actual fact, not your truth at all.
In Amir’s talk he talks about the importance of following your intuition and living in the now, because if you aren’t ‘how do you plan or script the present moment?’ And the answer is, you can’t. It is not possible. Therefore, all you have is the now. All you have is your intuition. All you have is your inner knowing. All you have is the feeling. All you have is the truth, which is the now. And so again it repeats.
When you’re following your intuition, things become effortless.
I know this to be true, because there have been so many times in my life when I have been over thinking something, I’ve followed what my head says rather than my heart and life has turned out to be more difficult than it needs to be. Equally, when I follow my intuition, things just seem to flow effortlessly. It’s not that everything is easy, but the action I take is freely and without effort. And more importantly, the Universe supports you when you are following your intuition and it will give you hints and tips when you aren’t.
Your act of following your intuition, creates flow.
In his talk, Amir gives an example of a rugby player who, at times, when he is on the playing field, rather than following ‘the plan’ for the team will follow his intuition through moments of inspiration and create opportunities for the team, that wouldn’t necessarily have been there if he had been following ‘the plan’. No logic can be applied to this, because he just needs to trust that rather than passing the ball to the right (in the plan), when he feels to pass the ball to the left, that a team mate will be there to receive the ball, and he is.
Following your intuition takes incredible trust and it takes incredible faith. It requires you to listen to your heart, your gut, your body, your inner knowing, your in’tuition’, rather than your head, that provides logic and rational thinking.
This is something that I am working on in every moment of every hour, of every day, of every week and of every month, because I know it to be true. And the closer I get to living in the moment, in the now, from my intuition, the fuller my life becomes of true peace, love and joy.
And so the question I ask for you is, what messages are you getting from your intuition, your inner knowing at the moment, that don’t make any sense and aren’t logical? And what would it take for you to follow them, despite what your head is telling you? Despite the fact that taking that decision makes no sense? What’s the worst that would happen? Sometimes we just need to follow the feeling. Sometimes we just need to trust that, deep down we know what is good for us, even though it doesn’t make sense or add up. Sometimes we just need to take that leap of faith and know that everything will be OK.
Sending you lots of love and light,
