The Power of Intuition

Q. How do I know I am making the right decision in any given moment ?

A. There is only one choice, out of the infinity of choices available in every second, that will create happiness for you as well as for those around you. It's the action that nourishes you and everyone else who is influenced by that action. There is a very interesting mechanism that the universe has to help you make spontaneously correct choices. The mechanism has to do with sensations in your body. Your body experiences two kinds of sensations: one is a sensation of comfort, the other is a sensation of discomfort. At the moment you consciously make a choice, pay attention to your body and ask your body, "If I make this choice, what happens?".If your body sends a message of comfort, that's the right choice. If your body sends a message of discomfort, then it's not the appropriate choice. For most people, the message of comfort and discomfort is in the area of the heart. Consciously put your attention in the heart and ask your heart what to do. Then wait for the response - a physical response in the form of a sensation. It may be the faintest level of feeling - but it's there, in your body. Only the heart knows the correct answer contrary to what people think that it is mushy and sentimental. The heart is intuitive; it's holistic, it's contextual, it's relational. It doesn't have a win-lose orientation. It taps into the cosmic computer - the field of pure potentiality,pure knowledge, and infinite organizing power - and takes everything into account.
