Do you use both your head and your gut instincts to make decisions in life? Logic and reason are valuable, but limited. They do not hold all the answers. When we work with our intuition too, we are tapped into the universal consciousness, the infinite.
Here is a very good Psychology Today article, which explains why we should rely on both: What Is Intuition, And How Do We Use It?
Life’s too short. Follow the magic!

During my early 20’s, I began reading many books on metaphysics and spirituality. Ideas that my mind had independently explored for years demanded it. I voraciously absorbed the knowledge logically, but there came a moment in Point Reyes, California, when I assimilated it all at a feeling level. As I stood on a tiny platform looking out over the vast azure Pacific, my body tingled all over. I felt deeply my bond with this seemingly boundless body of water, and I understood the infinite nature of my soul and our connection to everything.
The wisdom we are born with can become lost
Looking back I realize that my childhood self had already known this, but the logical world around me at the time did not support it. So, I had constantly questioned my own intuitive wisdom. Later, reading and exploring the ideas written by other people brought me into alignment with truths that already existed within me. In fact, that visit to the ocean brought me full circle back to myself. I do believe we are born with wisdom that is inherent. But our society values logic first and foremost, which can cause us to lose touch with it as adults.
Quest for meaning outside the box
Fast forward another few years, and my partner and I sold everything we owned and began traveling. We almost immediately befriended a free spirit surfer/photographer named Jim Welch. When you are passionately searching and you ask, the universe will work its magic and bring the right things and people to you. We were all on a similar quest, to find some meaning in life outside the standard formula. I interviewed Jim about his personal experiences and philosophies, and wrote my first story during our travels (published by Escape Artist), called One Wave. And the journey continues…

You do, you do, you do… have magic within you! How do you tap into it? You were born with powerful tools at your disposal; I urge you to use them:
- Your mind (power of thought)
