Intuition or direct knowing, is present in all of us because we are all connected to Infinite Intelligence. I’m fascinated with intuition because it’s responsible for the world’s greatest discoveries. Besides this, it also guides people and helps them align with their life purpose.
My interest in intuition has enabled me to realize the following significant facts about intuition which I’m so happy to share with you.
1.You Can Tell the Difference Between the Ego Voice and Intuitive Voice
The ego voice is always concerned with the past, and it makes decisions based on fear. It often makes you anxious and insecure because it’s always worried that something terrible might happen. Furthermore, it regularly advises you to go after material things and makes you fall out of alignment with your life purpose.
On the other hand, your intuitive voice usually advises you to follow your life purpose and
2. Spending Time in Nature Awakens Your Intuition
Nature provides a calming experience because it relaxes the mind. Moreover, the sounds of birds, crickets, and other animals quiet the mind.
We only connect to our intuition when the mind is relaxed or quiet because it’s easier to hear the intuitive voice when the mind is in such states.
3.The World’s Major Religions Believe in Intuition
Christians, Buddhists, and Muslims believe in Intuition.
Christians and Muslims believe intuition is a gift from God. However, Christians believe the Holy Spirit enhances intuition while Muslims believe that strong faith and a pure heart strengthen the intuition. On the other hand, Buddhists think intuition is a part of faith, and spiritual practices such as meditation and mindfulness awaken our intuitive abilities
4.Most Experts Rely on Intuition
Most businesspeople, managers, and investors rely on intuition when making quick decisions. Moreover, intuition helps them pinpoint the correct information from large amounts of data.
However, studies show that only the intuition of highly trained and experienced professionals is right because these folks have been exposed to large pieces of information, related to their fields of study, for an extended period.
5.There Are Several Ways to Awaken Your Intuition
Most spiritual leaders believe meditation, mindfulness, yoga, and prayer awaken your intuitive powers. They claim that spending time in nature and being in the present moment awaken the intuition. Also, some believe that trusting life or aligning with its flow awaken the intuition. All these methods are reliable because they calm the mind hence allowing you to hear your intuitive voice.
My interest in the topic of intuition has enlightened me about the above facts about intuition. For this reason, I will continue studying intuition and thinking about it so that I discover more enlightening facts about this inner voice. Hope you’ll be available when I release the next awesome post on intuition

Does Polytheism Make More Sense?
Monotheism is the belief in one God, while polytheism is the belief in many gods.
After studying ancient cultures for a while, I realized that most of them were polytheistic. Most ancient African, European, American and Asian cultures believed in many gods. They believed in the gods of wisdom, gods of wealth, gods of nature, gods of warriors and so on. Ancient folks prayed to particular gods for particular things. If an individual wanted wealth, he would pray to the god of wealth, and if another wanted luck, he would pray to the gods of luck and good fortune.
Besides this, some ancient cultures worshipped many gods but believed in a supreme God that dominated other gods. For example, the Greeks believed Zeus was the King of Gods, but they also worshipped the other gods.
Furthermore, while studying ancient cultures, it dawned on me that polytheism is older than monotheism. Sarah Johnson agrees with me for she wrote, “polytheism is always the older or ‘primary’ and monotheism the newer or secondary type of religion (Sarah Johnson, Ancient Religions).” It, therefore, appears that monotheists borrowed the concept of God from polytheists.
However, most people believe polytheism is a form of paganism. Little do they know that the concept of one god appeared after people unified polytheistic gods into one Supreme-being. Some scholars even argue that monotheism began when Akhenaten, an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh, forced Egyptians to practice monotheism.
I’m sometimes tempted to believe polytheism makes more logical sense than monotheism. Sometimes I wonder if God can hear all our prayers, answer them, and guide all of us at the same time. Maybe it’s true, as polytheists believe, that God rules over other gods that assist him in guiding us, and listening to our prayers. It also makes sense that if one wants wisdom and wealth, she should pray to the god of wisdom and wealth, instead of praying to the King of Gods/God.
Perhaps God’s only duty is to provide life to the universe while other gods’ duties are to take care of us and guide us. Maybe we even have guardian gods that help us deal with life and fulfill our destinies.
Lastly, is it sensible to argue that all ancient cultures believed in many gods because they were primitive, or because it was logical to believe in many gods? Moreover, why did various ancient cultures which never met, coincidentally believe in many gods? Maybe it’s because these gods existed.
Anyway, the idea of many gods should be taken seriously because it might be the secret to freedom and understanding the higher realms. Maybe monotheism was created because it prevents people from realizing the true nature of the higher realms and it’s easier to control people who believe in one God.

The Era of the Ego and the Destruction of Intuition (Intuition Part 2)
Ego is a feeling of importance: it encourages self-centeredness, pride, and loves seeking approval. It also reinforces feelings of inferiority and a sense of lack.
The modern society is the era of the surface self/ego: it amplifies the ego by promoting materialism, individuality, and feelings of self-importance. It deceives the masses that they can only attain happiness when they become important folks. Besides this, it strengthens the surface self by making people focus on competition and comparing themselves with each other.
The modern society also fortifies our egos by making us identify with our achievements and material wealth. It encourages people to believe that their certificates, job titles, cars, and houses determine their self-worth. For this reason, most of us have become self-obsessed because we think life revolves around us.
We have let the ego control us without realizing its disastrous effects. The ego impedes creativity, increases our chances of failure, and prevents us from establishing good relationships. Primarily, it’s harmful to us because it destroys intuition. (I fully described the meaning of intuition in the article, The Era of Anxiety and the Destruction of Intuition).
Intuition, as Albert Einstein pointed it out, ‘is a sacred-gift.’ It leads to better decision-making, improves mental well-being, and boosts creativity. It also enables us to identify with our true purpose and allows us to know whatever we need to know because it’s our connection to our higher selves.
Our intuitive abilities awaken when we are highly connected to the higher-self. The ego suppresses the higher-self and disconnects us from it by making us obsessed with the outer world, hence making us less intuitive. Besides this, we become highly connected with the higher-self when we are loving and generous, but the ego prevents this connection by promoting competition, which causes jealousy, hate, and selfishness.
Moreover, the ego destroys intuition by causing too much noise in our heads. It makes us think continously about the ways we can elevate our self-image, how we can outdo our friends, and the material possessions we need to boost our feelings of self-importance. Furthermore, the ego worries, judges, and is obsessed with thinking about other folks. The ego thus limits intuition by preventing us from having a clear and relaxed mind, which is necessary for the awakening of our intuitive abilities.
Therefore, ego is also one of the biggest enemies of intuition. You must learn to suppress it if you are interested in awakening your intuitive abilities. Practice humility, and strive to connect with your higher-self instead of the surface self, and you will awaken your most reliable source of
“The constant chatter of the ego and analytical mind creates so much mental noise that we can’t hear the inner guiding voice of our higher-self.’ – Jeff,The Multidimensional Self: The Soul, Oversoul, and the Beyond
