Just what izzat, terzackly? Well, fortunately there’s an app for that. On the dictionary app on my phone, I looked it up.
Intuition – direct perception independent of any reasoning process.
Heart – 1) capacity of sympathy/empathy 2) the center of emotion 3) spirit, enthusiasm, courage.
Put ‘em together and what have you got? Not “bibbity-bobbity-boo”, but a phrase describing a state of mind which includes an open-ness to a “sixth sense”, and a willingness to explore the other than physical connections we share. You’ve heard of “women’s intuition”, I’m sure. I’m reasonably certain men have it too, though possibly not as well-developed. Some of you may remember the author of “The Celestine Prophesy”, James Redfield, who based his book on coincidental connections. It was a best-seller decades ago and opened the door a little wider for the exploration of the powers of the mind and spirit, a.k.a. human potential growth. “Intuitive Heart” is similar.
By way of trying to explain my perception of “Intuitive Heart”, I offer this scenario. You’re at a party or just having a discussion with friends about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Someone relates a life experience which has meaning to you, it strikes a chord with you, and you share about a similar event in your life, which has meaning for another in the group, and soon you’ve all not only learned something about each other that you may not have known, but also about yourself and the commonality of experience that you share.
The introduction to the upcoming intensive this weekend on “Intuitive Heart” puts it this way:
There is a special “something” within each of us that connects us to the Source of Life, whatever we may call it. It also connects us to each other. We know this, even though we may not have words to describe it. This is why we use figures of speech such as “higher consciousness” and “trusting inspiration” . Having the experience of this special something is what the Intuitive Heart intensive is all about. When you attend, you get to have fun while experiencing profound “aha’s”.
I attended a shorter version of this workshop last year at the Human Potential Center and discovered ways to connect with others on a new level. After the initial necessary pleasantries, it came time to open my mind to new possibilities and what I learned has enhanced my life. I find myself less judgemental, more empathetic, generally more aware of how connected we all really are, and subsequently more at peace with myself.
But that’s just me.
Words, though integral to communication, have limitations. I’ve been dancing around with them trying to convey how beneficial this “intuitive heart” class/workshop/intensive can be. In the end, it’s something you have to experience for yourself. Give the Human Potential Center a call and sign up. Try it, you’ll like it. You’ll be glad you did.
