The modern society encourages people to focus so much on the future, thus leading to high anxiety levels. Jobs, exams, social media, and many other modern factors make us extremely anxious about the future. We worry if we’ll maintain our jobs, pay rent, raise successful kids, or pass the exams. We compare ourselves with our social media ‘friends’ and worry if we’ll ever have a better lifestyle than them.
The avoidance of spiritual practices, such as meditation and prayer, has also increased anxiety levels in the modern era. Many studies reveal that prayer and meditation calm the mind. For this reason, the avoidance of these practices has resulted in a chaotic mind that continuously worries about anything, thus paving the way for chronic anxiety.
Most of us embrace anxiety without knowing its disastrous effects on our physical well-being. Primarily, we are oblivious to the fact that anxiety destroys humanity’s most reliable source of knowledge and scientific discoveries: our intuition.
Intuition is our connection to Infinite Intelligence. Osho, The Indian Godman, defined it as ‘the highest rung of the ladder of consciousness.’ Intuition allows people to know things without reasoning. As Robert Graves, the historical novelist, pointed it out, ‘Intuition is the supra-logic that cuts out all the routine process of thought and leaps straight from the problem to the answer.’ You can understand everything about the universe if you tap into your intuition.
Intuition mainly awakens when we focus on the present moment because Infinite Intelligence exists in the present moment. Moreover, being present, as Penney Pierce noticed, ‘awakens our intuitive abilities because our spirit, mind, and body become aligned when we are in the present moment.’ For this reason, anxiety destroys intuition because it makes us focus on the future.
Besides this, anxiety destroys intuition because it prevents us from listening to our intuitive voice. Our intuition is always communicating with us, but we can’t hear it since we are usually anxious about a future outcome.
With that in mind, it’s clear that the more anxious we are, the less intuitive we become. And it’s arguable that ancient folks were highly intuitive because they focused on the present moment. They were less worried about the future because they knew their gods would take care of it.
Conversely, we are concerned about everything that might happen in the future, and for this reason, we have become extremely anxious. The high anxiety levels have destroyed our intuitive abilities and forced us to rely on our intellectual knowledge to navigate through life, thus resulting in lives not well-lived.
