Spiritual Growth and Your Intuitive Self – Developing Trust, Discernment and Persistence

All relationships engage us with aspects of ourselves that we are typically unaware of. A relationship with your intuitive self is one of the rewards introduced by emerging and evolving spiritual growth.

When you increase your awareness of what the possibilities are for intuitive knowing and then identify how you process information, you begin to exercise and develop not only your intuition but also your relationship with your intuitive self.

Our intuitive self is comprised entirely of intuitive knowledge and abilities. This non-rational self is the dimension of our physical (rational) self where all of the gifts of the sixth sense are rooted. What is not commonly assumed is that our intuitive self, the part of us that does the “knowing,” uses the best blend of all six senses’ knowledge and abilities. The intuitive self is a comprehensive other self. Both rational and non-rational selves are fully capable of having relationships with each other and with other rational and non-rational selves.

The rational is sensible, sane, and lucid. It demonstrates sound judgment and good sense and is characterized by reason. Rationality has tangible boundaries and definitions that conform to the five physical senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch. The non-rational is sensible, sane, and lucid but because its understandings are contrary to commonly accepted reason and rationality, it may be considered senseless, illogical, and absurd. Non-rationality could be defined by rational boundaries that use definitions born of mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical roots to produce, for example, senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch, knowing, feeling, empathy of emotion, attitude or ailment, telepathy, and channeling.

Developing a functional relationship between the rational and non-rational selves supports living the life of quality and dignity you choose with the most supportive best friend imaginable – your intuitive self. Defining a relationship with your intuitive self begins by becoming aware of, and then practicing, trust, discernment and persistence.

Trust in a relationship means to believe, with confidence, that your expectations for integrity, honesty, and truth will always be met. Trust is built upon shared experiences or as the result of actions and results in a stable relationship. Where there is trust, there is love. As you learn to trust your intuitive self, your self-love develops as you accept the truth of your abilities and their strengths and weaknesses. Integrity becomes significant in a trusting relationship; it suggests dependability and is best when motivated by love.

Trust in your relationship with your intuitive self means growing to confidently believe what your intuition communicates to you in each situation. It is a process by which you learn to understand that your intuitive self is wholly reliable and consistently providing supportive information. The trick is to discern the “how” and the “what” of this support. Once you are comfortable persistently asking for the support and aware of its persistence in appearing, you will need to discern what your best response is.

Discernment in a relationship means the exercise of keen insight, judgment, and perception wisely tempered with understanding. Healthy discernment entails honesty and responsibility. Poor discernment results in consequences that are either missed opportunities or less than optimum choices. Consequences can be the result of not trusting the intuitive self. Learning discernment is vital in terms of the choices we make relative to trust, perspective, and attitude.

By becoming conscious of our attitudes, definitions, and perspectives, we can start to discern what works for us and how to engage it repeatedly. We can start making choices about whether our rational view of life is serving us sufficiently or if we would also like to take advantage of our non-rational perspectives by working with our intuitive self. Learning how our intuitive self communicates with us and adapting this to our benefit promotes a healthy relationship for our rational and non-rational selves.

As your spiritual growth increases your awareness of the possibilities for intuitive knowing increase.  You begin to exercise and develop both your intuition and your relationship with your intuitive self. Continued spiritual growth transforms your intuitive knowing and results in growing awareness and engagement of trust, discernment and persistence as applied to your relationship with your intuitive self.

Irish Soda Brown Bread (No Yeast)
Category: Breakfast
Description: Baking is back and everyone wants a slice.
The truth is, though, that in some parts of the world, baking never went away. In some parts of the world, long walks end in buttered brown bread and huge mugs of tea. In some parts of the world, smoked salmon must be eaten with an oven-fresh loaf and a squeeze of lemon.
We happen to know where that part of the world is.
The Food Revolution sped through Ireland and its legacy is a tasty one. Foraging is a food trend favourite and Burren Lamb is gracing plates from Clare to Canberra. Galway and Louth oysters are making their way steadily up the list of most delicious delicacies, and cafés have embraced the cappuccino as a long lost beverage brother.
In short, Ireland is tasty.
But no matter how funky food gets or how innovative chefs become, a country should always save space for the classics.
In Ireland’s case, that classic is Soda Bread.
Baked is beautiful
“People are waking up to the smell of real bread again – I’m thrilled and delighted.”
“When you think about it – it’s a complex carbohydrate, it’s full of fibre, and it keeps you full for much longer than a slice of processed white bread would. It’s also seriously delicious.”
