I just had a conversation with my son. We were talking about being what he calls "an oracle". I'm thinking he is referring to the movie The Matrix. You know the scene. When the Grandmother pulls a tray of fresh-made cookies out of the oven and lets you know that what she is about to say...
"will really bake your noodle".
Sometimes the world delivers that kind of information...big enough that you can only swallow it a bite at a time.
My son and I went on to talk about where "knowing" resides. I spoke about seeing with your heart. And that most of the time what we are "seeing" comes from our minds.
He said that his knowing is a gut feeling.
With all that is going on in our world. I am happy to know that my son can trust and act on his gut sensation.
My son and I had this conversation because as he says - this is the fourth thing you knew about and it happened.
It takes a lot of responsibility to know. To trust our knowing and act on our knowing.
Not everyone wants that level of responsibility.
We are all at different stages of exploring what that looks like.
You can call it listening to God.
Trusting your gut.
Following your intuition.
Hearing Spirit whisper.
It is all the same to me.
It is much easier to be pragmatic and logical - to discard the magic. To Google a "fact" and hand over our process to an authority, to assumptions and surface information.
A good question to ask - "what do I know now that I am not allowing in?".
As each of us navigate this time of violence and uncertainty, I feel that our "knowing" will guide us now more than ever.
Our "noodles are baked", our minds are likely incapable of processing what is going on in our world.
It is time to trust our hearts and act on what our hearts are telling us.
