It is possible to reach for new creative thoughts. Leaning into inspired thought requires the conscious intention to rest upon the edge of what you do not yet know. In your personal mind, there is likely a stream of thoughts that run horizontally from the past to the future in a way that rarely changes. In contrast, intuitive thinking reaches up vertically, inviting fresh understanding.
Spiritual teacher Guy Finley explains how to prepare yourself to hear your intuition:
"Practice breaking thought. Go mentally silent. Just become aware of yourself without thinking about it. Break into the swarm of thoughts and feelings, over and over again, with your awareness of their presence. This will silence them and show you where you have been. This important practice of conscious awareness allows you to know in each moment that there is You and your thinking, and You and your emotions. All are present at the same time. This knowledge brings choice."
You have a "Free Mind" and a "me mind." Once you understand the limits of your “me mind," you can discern between intuitive insight and habitual thinking. When you harmonize with Free Mind thinking, you will receive the answers to any questions that you may have.
