Many philosophers, futurists and meta physicians believe that we are at a point in history where it is necessary to develop our intuition in order to rise to the complex challenges we face today. Our conscious, everyday mind simply does not have the flexibility or creativity that is available through our intuition.
Fast Pace and Information Overload Wreak Havoc on Intuition, Mind and Body
Increasingly people are reporting that they feel overwhelmed, forgetful, stressed and have trouble concentrating.Our innovations have brought many gifts. However, those same innovations are also taxing our mind-body-spirit!
One answer may be to develop our higher minds. Our intuition is faster and more accurate than the “normal” mind and can help take us out of stress and overwhelm and perhaps make forgetfulness irrelevant!
Second Attention brings more expansive consciousness (intuition)
Second Attention is that level or quality of consciousness that focuses more on the intuitive, spiritual,or inner world as opposed to the common mind (first attention) that focuses on external realities. Each level of mind has its own capabilities. We need both to be balanced and whole.
Second Attention is that facet of consciousness where intuition, gut feeling, inner knowing or sixth sense reside. This sense is about inner awareness. This awareness can help to resolve issues, release struggle and longing and smooth the way to the true fulfillment of your desires.
Developing this aspect allows you to (1) examine thoughts, feelings and beliefs that lead to problems and root them out at the core, (2) open the way to more creative problem solving, (3) expand your consciousness beyond the physical and material world and awaken you to your spiritual nature, (4) help you to transcend limitations, expand creative ability, and step into your true power. An added benefit to developing intuition is that you also tend to gain increased tolerance, ease of being, happiness, understanding and vitality!
Expansion of Second Attention for Intuition
Proper alignment of your subtle energy bodies are at the core of developing second attention through clear and present awareness. This awareness allows you to know what is right for you, and helps you attain happiness and health.
Developing inner awareness and learning how to manage energy (subtle energy competency) involves learning to listen to your body and mind in a new way. That new way helps you to create health and happiness from the inside out! This aids in creating life balance, finding purpose and meaning, and being receptive to higher wisdom.
We all have an innate capacity for joy, pleasure, harmony and a balanced spiritual toughness (resiliency) that goes largely untapped. These inner capabilities can not only help us to find more pleasure in everyday life but also aid in rising to the inevitable challenges.
The New Human and Intuition
As a culture we are grappling with yearning for deeper connections within ourselves, with each other, and the world around us. We also are facing challenges that go beyond the capacity of the common mind to rise to and move beyond.
We need a higher perspective and more highly creative solutions to birth a sustainable new world. It has been suggested that there is a new human emerging as we evolve. This new human will have greater access to the higher qualities of mind (insight, creativity and intuition).
Inner development is needed to to bring those higher qualities online. As we learn to develop our mind and its abilities, to masterfully navigate our mind-body systems, and work with personal and universal energy we can accomplish these tasks.
