This will be a short post I can tell. Mostly because Little is running around. I have to remind myself that a post written in 5 minutes is still worth it as I am remembering my thoughts for later. They will never be as eloquent as I would like and of course not as academic as I like because who can find the right sources for random thoughts that flow through your head when you have no time to even write fully.
back to the point.
All of my spiritually relies heavily on intuition. Yes I do read history and science and legends and lore. I check sources. At the end of the day I use my intuition. I use it to find the information I need in other sources and I use it to decide if any given rite or ritual is for me.
I think of intuition as my inner voice. The one softly guiding me down my right path. I think so highly of it that it is a key component in my teaching. Often people will ask “what does this mean” or “what should I do” often I disappoint because instead of telling them I ask “what do you think it means?” or “what do you think you should do?” or “what does it mean to you?” We talk it though and I offer insights if I think it appropriate but mostly I am teaching them to hear their own soft voice and listen to their intuition.
