What is life? A Bizarre Reality, But How?

What is life? A Bizarre Reality, But How?

We live is a bizarre reality. So What is life?

Even today, even after being able to pull it apart and examine it through a microscope and in laboratories, science still does not have the definition for what is life, let alone the meaning of life, let alone what consciousness is in our bizarre reality.

Life, because it is such a complex system of things, with so many interacting parts, each of which is essential, is really tough to make a definition. We live in a bizarre reality, which I will talk about here.

I find this quote striking:

“For what we do as scientists, [a definition of life] is unnecessary. It’s sort of like a lot of big questions in science: ‘Where are we from? How did the universe get created?’ These are big questions that we’ll probably never be able to solve. But not knowing what life is doesn’t change our ability to engineer it.”

For me this says it all.

Science is great at pulling the puzzle apart and understanding a few of the pieces. They can re-arrange them, to create something quite marvellous, like inventions we can monetize, and play with; which also changes our lives completely, like the iPhone. But the overall puzzle, even the question what is life, is lost to them, to us.

Yes, they can look at it in its entirety, but still not have an answer. What does the puzzle actually represent?

But if life in its organic mechanized form can’t be defined, what is consciousness, let alone what is life?

Consciousness is part of life, it does not tell us what is life, but it certainly leads us toward a bizarre reality. The fact is that no one knows what consciousness is.

On the one hand, science has known for a long time that nothing is more obvious, and undeniable, than the fact that you are conscious. In theory, everything else you think you know about the world could be an elaborate illusion cooked up to deceive you. At this point, present-day writers invariably invoke The Matrix. But your consciousness itself can’t be illusory.

Yes, the world around you may not be real at all, and yet the one undeniable truth is consciousness itself.

On the other hand, this most certain and familiar of phenomena obeys none of the usual rules of science.

It doesn’t seem to be physical.

Nor can it be observed, except from within, by the conscious person.

It can’t even really be described. The mind must be made of some special, immaterial stuff that didn’t abide by the laws of nature.

Some scientist presented their own “sketch of a theory”, arguing that certain neurons, firing at certain frequencies, might somehow be the cause of our inner awareness – though it is not clear how.

Chalmers’s “zombie” thought experiment is his attempt to show why the mechanical account is not enough – why the mystery of conscious awareness goes deeper than a purely material science can explain.

The experiment hypothesized that: if you were approached by me and my doppelgänger, not knowing which was which, not even the most powerful brain scanner in existence could tell us apart. And the fact that one can even imagine this scenario is sufficient to show that consciousness can’t just be made of ordinary physical atoms. So consciousness must, somehow, be something extra – an additional ingredient in nature.

What is life

What is life, What is Consciousness, a bizarre reality?

So what is consciousness according to my experience? Consciousness is everything at once.

What do I mean?

Consciousness is everything you are aware of at once.

What is life? Well all I can say is life is the vessel for conscious reasoning. But it is not consciousness itself. Many death experiences, people who have died, and had been revived after some time has passed, will tell you they still experienced a post life sate of consciousness, whatever that might be.

But getting back to what consciousness is for me, I can best describe it like this.

I can read an article, and at the same time I can be aware of the humming refrigerator in the backyard, and at the same time I’m thinking about my wife who is working in the basement; I can feel the pain in my back; and I can feel hungry; and at the same time I can feel a slight anxiety because of what I’m reading; I can feel the seat that I’m sitting on; and I can hear a dog barking outside; at the same time I’m still reading the article and learning, and at the same time all of this is happening at once!

So consciousness is me being awake, and it is also me when I’m asleep, and dreaming. Yet I’m still that same person aware that I’m dreaming, if it is lucid.

People who have been in comas with basic, low brain functionality, say that they were still aware of people in the room.

Consciousness is something other than just the brain, it’s something extra, it’s something inexplicable, it’s something we all share, and life would not be possible without it.

Everything is consciousness in my opinion, even so-called in-animate things. Everything is connected, and everything somehow fits together, like a puzzle fits together.

According to science : everything we know about the universe tells us that reality consists only of physical things. I is made up of atoms and their component particles, busily colliding and combining.

Above all, critics point out, if this non-physical mental stuff did exist, how could it cause physical things to happen – as when the feeling of pain causes me to jerk my fingers away from the saucepan’s edge?

Dogs, or sparrows or mice or insects?

The problem is that there seems to be no logical reason to draw the line at dogs, or sparrows or mice or insects, or, for that matter, trees or rocks.

Since we don’t know how the brains of mammals create consciousness, we have no grounds for assuming it’s only the brains of mammals that do so – or even that consciousness requires a brain at all.

The argument unfolds as follows: physicists have no problem accepting that certain fundamental aspects of reality – such as space, mass, or electrical charge – just do exist. They can’t be explained as being the result of anything else.

Explanations have to stop somewhere. The hunch is that consciousness could be like that, too – and that if it is, there is no particular reason to assume that it only occurs in certain kinds of matter.

For me the trouble is everyone gets it wrong. It’s not about understanding what the puzzle represents as a whole, it’s about inventing new pieces of the puzzle to accommodate our curiosity.

It’s about creation, which is what consciousness seems to be doing all the time: creating more and more new ways of experiencing this thing we call life.

What is life? A Bizarre Reality, But How?

But there is a new theory that does not try to explain what consciousness or life is. It simply says that life, or consciousness, creates the universe, not the other way around.

At first, when I read about Biocentrism I thought this was seriously far out there, and really hard to grasp. But the more I read about it, the more I understand it, the more I realize this is truly the only way reality functions, and the first realistic attempt at explaining the theory of everything. And the question is no longer what is life, it is: what can I do with life?

Biocentrism looks at reality through the lens of biology, more so than through mathematics.

What Biocentrism try’s to make us understand is that there is no independent, external universe outside of biological experience. this might sound like a bizarre reality.

Because what we perceive as reality is a process that involves our consciousness.  If there is no observer to collapse the quantum wave particles into something observable, then there is no independent reality out there.

I know this is a tough one to get your head around.

But, Biocentrism says that our understanding of the universe as a whole has reached a dead end. Science is constantly forced to jury-rig its theories to fit our observations, as in the 1979 acceptance of a period of exponential growth, known as inflation, for which the physics is basically unknown. It even turns out that the Big Bang has no answer for one of the greatest mysteries in the universe: why is the universe exquisitely fine-tuned to support life?

The more we pull apart the fundamentals of the universe, the less we understand, the great we see our bizarre reality, the more willing we are to explain it away.

Biocentrism says that our current theories of the physical world don’t work. And we can never be made to work, until they account for life and consciousness. Life and consciousness are absolutely fundamental to our understanding of the universe.

There are many scientific observations and explanations in the theory of Biocentrism. Each one does a mind-boggling job of proving that life creates the universe. But the scope of which this article can’t cover. So I will leave it with one of the easiest, most demonstrable aspects of Biocentrism:

Newtonian science assumes that all creatures basically apprehend the same visually real object, which persists even if no eyes are upon it.

Not so with Biocentrism.

Our experience of reality is comprised of the human senses internalizing a world that is actually made up of frequencies and energy fields. Our brain just interprets such as being a solid living reality. One we are conditioned to believe that it is outside of us.

The truth is, all of reality is happening within our consciousness.

Example of a tree falling in the forest. Does it make a sound, If no one is there to hear it?

Science would say that the tree does not make a sound. It just pushes the air.

If there is no observer with an ear, and a brain to record the puffs of air vibrating in the ear, then a tree just makes air move when it falls.

The trick to understanding this is to be able to remove yourself from the equation. This is hard for people to do, because we immediately imagine ourselves being there as the tree falls.

Everything in the visible universe only exist if there is consciousness to perceive it.

Not all creatures perceive that sound the same way, or even the light of a candle the same way. Some animals will perceive the colour of a yellow flame to be a grey Flickr.

The universe, to each sentient of consciousness, is a subjective experience. And it only becomes a shared reality when two or more people agree on something; and then the quantum wave collapses, and becomes a quantum system.

Now Biocentrism goes much deeper into this bizarre reality on a quantum level, but that is for a different article.

Conclusion

What is life? Life is part of a bizarre reality, that I believe we are creating through our watching consciousness. We invent language, and science, to invent theories of what life might be, or could be, or perhaps should be. This helps us to live fulfilling lives. It seems like it’s up to us. We are creators!

Intuitive Thinking During An Outbreak, But Not When I Go Shopping, Why?

Intuitive Thinking During An Outbreak, But Not When I Go Shopping, Why?

Intuitive thinking is something I do at work but not otherwise

Intuitive thinking is an odd thing. Normally you would think that someone who is an Intuitive thinker would always be so. But it’s not true.

I know from experience. I’m not very intuitive when I go shopping.

Another Example, I work as a news photographer, and over the years I have learned to trust my intuition. Yet, something I realized the other day, when I was covering an outbreak, is that when I’m trusting my intuition I’m not doing this in every aspect of my life.
Let me explain?

So me and my reporter are hanging out on the street, behind a seniors home that has been hit hard by the outbreak

It’s private property so there’s no way for us to get even close to where we need to be, if we want to get interviews with family members.

As we’re standing there I see something out of the corner of my eye, and my intuition tells me that I should Zoom in and shoot whatever is going on, because this is going to be our story. It was a woman standing at the window behind the seniors home. She was far away. I needed to use my range extender, just to get a good shot.

She was standing at the window, and I didn’t know what she was doing, but my intuition told me this is going to be interesting.

I realized that she had a sheet of paper and a pen, and she was writing something on the page. Then she would wave at someone through the window, and then hold the page up against the window as if trying to talk to someone who can’t hear her.

It turns out she was communicating with her mom who was in the quarantined seniors home, and it was incredibly moving and touching because this was the only way they could communicate with each other.

Of course she was worried about her mom, because there were several deaths in the seniors home, and many people infected, including staff.

When she was done, and waved goodbye, we were able to stop her in her car as she was pulling out of the driveway, and we got an amazing story, her story of how difficult the situation was, etc.

Intuitive Thinking

My intuition never fails me when I’m working for the news

What I realize though is that the same kind of trust I have for my intuition during work is not applied to my every day life. I often find myself going against my intuition sometimes the moment I leave work.

For example, I might take a certain road home when my intuition is telling me not to. And when I take that road I end up in a traffic jam.

But my logic was telling me that if I take that road home I will get home sooner, so why not take a risk, because that road is always plagued with the traffic jams.

I should have listened to my intuition. But I didn’t. Then I ended up in a traffic jam stuck.

I just find it interesting that I trust my intuition in certain situations, but not in others.

Why?

I now realize it has something to do with the task.

When I’m being professional I give it my all. I remain hyper focused, and in tune to my environment, to remain successful. The adrenalin puts me in the moment, and heightened awareness.

But after work, I let go. I become relaxed, I’m no longer focused, I let the fog of logic in, which is talking to me, and telling me to take a break, because I deserve it. No need to make perfect decisions now, it says to me, this is quality time. As if quality time needs no intuition.

It’s a trap, because intuition is a quiet voice with in, that always wants to talk to me too

I just need to listen to it all the time.

The ego is loud and domineering.

It is demanding that I stop making the right decisions, because I deserve to become the centre of the universe. This means I become unconnected, unfocused, far less aware of my environment, and thus shutting out that quiet voice.

Conclusion

Do you do a lot of intuitive thinking? Are you trusting your intuition in every aspect of your life? If you’re not maybe it’s time to start doing so? I know this is something I really want to do.

Intuitive Empath, What Kind Of Person Is This?

Intuitive Empath, What Kind Of Person Is This?

Intuitive Empath, What Kind Of Person Is This?

An empath feels what another person is experiencing.

The intuitive empath connects to, and becomes like someone, in-order to have inner sight and understanding of them?

The intuitive empath is open to receive physical information about someone.

In this way an intuitive empath can know what is ailing people, where their physical suffering originates from.

Intuition is the ability to acquire knowledge without conscious reasoning.

It gives the empath direct access to unconscious knowledge through inner sensing. It’s an empathetic contemplation of another person in sensing their pain.

Empathy is the capacity to understand or feel what another person is experiencing from within their frame of reference, that is, the capacity to place oneself in another’s position.

The intuitive empath cares for other people, and desires to help them

They will experience emotions that match another person’s emotions; and be able to understand what another person is thinking or feeling.

But it goes deeper with intuition. The intuitive empath has the ability to feel and share another person’s emotions. And they understand their physical state as well.

We all have empathic abilities more or less.

Not everyone can imagine themselves as another person. This is a difficult imaginative process. But, the basic capacity to recognize other peoples emotions is something most people can do.

It is innate. And unconsciously it can be achieved. Connecting a well-trained intuition, which also runs unconsciously, to empathy is a powerful mix. It gives you the ability to look deeper into others.

Like intuition training, you can train your empathy too.

Intuitive Empath

Empathy has a lot to do with imitation.

Imitating someone to understand how they think and feel, and to relate to them is an important emphatic skill. Intuition will help you to connect even deeper with that person on a physical level.

One word of caution, some intuitive empaths are drained of energy by the people they help. As an empath you must ask yourself why you feel the need to always want to help others?

Empathy is like altruism and egotism

Altruism is a behavior. Its main goal is to benefit another person.

Egotism is a behavior that is acted out for personal gain.

Sometimes, when someone is feeling empathetic towards another person, acts of altruism occur. On the other hand, some people think they act altruistically, when, in truth, they are motivated by the ego. This is egotism.

Always ask yourself why you want to help. If it’s ultimately for egotistical reasons this will likely drain you of your energy in the end. Be careful. And learn to train your intuition now: Click here!

Trust Your Instincts? Why Wouldn’t You? Instinct vs Intuition!

Trust Your Instincts? Why Wouldn’t You? Instinct vs Intuition!

Should you trust your instincts?

You really have no choice then to trust your instincts. Instinct is a part of who you are. The bigger questions is: do you trust your intuition? Instinct and intuition are not the same thing.

Ever notice that intuitive decision making happens instantaneously?

I have.

When I’m at work, I’m a news photographer, something amazing often happens.

When I arrive at a crime scene, if there is a group of people watching the action, something tells me instantaneously who I should talk to. And this person usually turns out to be a witness, or a victim, and always gives me a great story.

I don’t know how or why this works, but it does.

The key is trusting the very first thing that comes to mind when I need to make a decision. Just using logic, gets me trapped in the labyrinth of my mind, which would block the intuitive energy that spontaneously arises.

So if it takes a long time to make a decision, then this is not intuition, this is your logical, analytical mind trying to reason.

Logic just makes comparisons, associations with past stored memories, or patterns, and if anything, logic is more in line with instinct.

But instinct arises from patterns, that do not need to be learned or experienced. Some think humans have evolved beyond instinct.

Others think that behaviours such as cooperation, sexual behaviour, and child rearing are seen as ‘evolved psychological mechanisms’ with an instinctive basis.

Instinct vs Intuition!

People often confuse instinct and intuition. For me human instinct comes from automated patterns, combined with past experience. This combination is ingrained in your mind.

Relying on instinct to make a decision is definitely quicker than just using logic, because it is a kind of built in wisdom. Instinct should be trusted above logic. It will tell you to make a wise choice, not just an associative one.

Intuition, on the other hand, is something that happens immediately, which allows you to make perfect and instant decisions. It’s quite mysterious.

Here’s something I found on the psychology of intuition. It’s very interesting the way science looks at decision making through intuition.

trust your instincts

Science and intuition

There is a model in science, which explains how people can make relatively fast decisions without having to compare options, called the (RPD).

When under pressure, when lacking in time, and stakes are high, and the situation is changing in real time, people use their base of experience to identify similar situations, and intuitively choose feasible solutions.

Sounds like a normal day at work to me.

Anyway, I can apply this knowledge to my example of arriving to a stressful and hectic crime scene.

There, I am under a time pressure to get the story as quickly as I can, in order to get it on air; now combine this with the changing parameters of the situation, and the unknowing of exactly what is happening. It makes total sense to me why my intuition is thus activated, and becomes incredibly helpful in making instant decisions.

So instinct is something that warns you of potential danger by recognizing patterns, whereas intuition allows you to instantly make the correct decision in order to succeed under high pressure.

Both of these things combined are part of what I believe is an acute survival mechanism.

Thus, the RPD model is a blend of intuition and analysis. The intuition is the pattern-matching process that quickly suggests feasible courses of action.

The analysis is based on logic and instinct. It’s a mental simulation based on past experience, a conscious and deliberate review of the courses of action. Combine the two and intuition and instinct will work together for the right outcome.

Instinct vs intuition. Trust your instincts and your intuition

Instinct is often misinterpreted as intuition. Yes, instinct is reliable, but dependent on past knowledge, patterns, and occurrences in a specific area.

Example: if a child has done something wrong and tells a lie, instinct will tell an experienced parent the truth behind the tears, based on similar past experience and patterns.

So intuition, on the other hand, is often nonverbal communication, which means an intuitive parent will be able to read nonverbal facial cues, before the truth is told, and instantly realize the child is not telling the truth.

Conclusion

Trust your instincts, it is important. It’s not a competition, as in instinct vs intuition; instead, instinct complements intuition, or the other way around.

The biggest difference is that with instinct there is no training involved. Instinct is simply to amalgamation of who you are, based on what’s been ingrained in your mind.

But intuition, on the other hand, needs to be brought to the surface, so to speak, nurtured, accepted and trained. Yes, trust your instincts, and train your intuition. And this is where you can start: Click Here

Can You Trust Your Gut Feeling? Can Intuition Be Measured?

Can You Trust Your Gut Feeling? Can Intuition Be Measured?

Is a Gut Feeling Better than logic?

Until recently the notion of making decisions based on intuition, or a “gut feeling,” an “inner voice” or a “sixth sense,” was considered by rational, logic oriented thinkers as nonsense.

For the rational mind intuition belongs in the realm of unicorns and rainbows, and isn’t real. Intuition for many people is just something we imagine existing, but it has always been impossible to quantify scientifically.

Yet a new scientific study strongly suggests that intuition does indeed play a real part in people’s decision-making. For the first time, researchers devised a technique to measure intuition. They found evidence that people can use their intuition to make faster, more accurate and more confident decisions.

What is your gut feeling? Does intuition really exist?

Spiritual people who do reiki, soul hunting, trance healing, shamanic journeying, or tarot card readings, don’t need to be told by scientists that intuition is real.

But this new study actually shows that intuition does, indeed, exist. Researchers can indeed measure it, according to Joel Pearson. He is the lead and associate professor of psychology at the University of New South Wales in Australia.

I know that intuition is something psychics and mediums, and tarot card people find interesting, and necessary to train. We, as energy workers, focus a lot on it. What I didn’t know is that intuition is a popular topic in psychology these days too.

In psychology, intuition is a process of the brain. This process gives people the ability to make decisions without the use of analytical reasoning.

Now I would argue from a spiritual point of view that perhaps intuition is not just a process of the brain, but also of the universal mind, or through our collective consciousness, where information can be tapped into.

Getting into the science of intuition, is a gut feeling real?

Despite widespread acceptance of this idea these days, by psychologists and the public, scientists have lacked a reliable test to gather objective data on intuition, and to even prove that a so called gut feeling exists.

In early experiments, researchers didn’t really know how to quantify intuition.  Thus, they never actually measured it.

Gut Feeling

Previously scientists used inaccurate methods like questionnaires that asked people how they were feeling, while they made decisions. The obvious problem with trying to measure intuition this way was the fact that people would be just expressing their opinion of what they thought a gut feeling might be, and the result it produces.

However, Pearson, in the new study, actually came up with a series of experiments that can measure intuition. The experiments worked to show whether people were using their intuition to help guide their decision-making or judgment.

The researchers defined intuition as the influence of “non conscious emotional information” from the body or the brain, such as an instinctual feeling or sensation.

How they measure a gut feeling

In the experiments, the researchers showed small groups of about 20 college students black-and-white images of dots moving around on one half of a computer screen.

The researchers asked the students to decide whether the dots were generally moving to the left or to the right. As the participants made this decision, on the other side of the computer screen, they saw a bright, flashing square of colour.

In this experiment scientists would use emotional triggers. Sometimes they embedded an image into the colourful square that was designed to trigger an emotional response from the participants.

It was a kind of subliminal seduction technique, where the participant would be unaware that the researchers were adding both positive and negative imagery. For positive emotions they would flash in a puppy or a baby. For negative emotions they would subliminally add in a gun or a snake,

These emotional images were not perceptible, because they flashed at speeds too fast to be consciously perceived.

Basically the researchers simulated they way intuition works through subliminal images using brief, emotionally charged, and subconsciously perceived pictures.

What were the results

The results showed that when the participants were shown the positive subliminal images, they did better on the task: they were more accurate in determining which way the dots were moving. But they also responded more quickly and reported feeling more confident in their choice.

Another interesting result was that the more the participants did this study, the better they became at trusting their intuition, or gut feeling.

Pearson said. “It’s all about learning to use unconscious information in your brain”. Anything you practice will improve that skill. The more you apply logic and reasoning to a problem and succeed, the more comfortable making decisions become. But this works for intuition too. You may also become more adept at trusting your intuition when you use it more frequently over time.

Conclusion, can you trust your gut feeling?

Intuition can help people make better decisions under the right circumstances. The study showed that information subconsciously perceived in the brain will help with decisions if that information holds some value or extra evidence beyond what people already have in their conscious mind.

We still don’t know what intuition is exactly, or where it comes from, but now we know how to use it, and why we should be using it all the time. Making better decisions is always important for any purpose you can think of.

Intuition is especially important for spiritual work, and growth.

I found this study to be incredibly interesting, and proves that it is possible to train your intuition, to trust you gut feeling.

Intuition Meaning, Why Is It Mysterious?

Intuition Meaning, Why Is It Mysterious?

Intuition Meaning, What Is Intuition?

Intuition meaning is ambiguous to say the least.  Because no one can say what Intuition is, where it comes from, or how it works exactly. So it is a mystery.

Different cultures have different views of what intuition is all about. So it has remained in the realm of philosophy and spooky mysticism forever, until recently. Because science has, in fact, found a way to measure the intuition itself, but that will be for a different post.

Intuition meaning

Here are some of the different ways of looking at our intuition

Hinduism Intuition Meaning

In Hinduism intuition is part of identity knowledge. Humans have two arbitrary natures.

One is based on the sensory information gathered through awareness of the external world.

The other is self awareness, the inner world of emotions.

So this is knowledge by identity.

And combining the two, we can extend further to outside of ourselves, resulting in intuitive knowledge.

Living in the state of intuition is one of the ultimate aims of humanity.

Buddhism Intuition Meaning

Buddhism connects the subconscious mind to Intuition. (This is perhaps the closest explanation to modern science.)

Intuition goes beyond the logical mind, into the mental process of conscious thinking. The reason for this is that the conscious mind has a difficult time interpreting, or even connecting to subconscious information.

In Zen Buddhism Intuition is kind of bridge between the Universal mind, and one’s individual, discriminating mind.

Islam Intuition Meaning

In Islam there are many and varied interpretations of intuition.

Because in Islam it is believed that regular knowledge is based on imitation, and intuitive knowledge is based on intellectual certitude.

Some think Intuition has a mystical, magical nature, and mystical contemplation will bring about correct judgment.

Others think intuition is a prophetic ability. It is the knowledge you get without asking for it. It just comes to the observer. It’s up to the prophet to recognize it.

Western philosophy

So in the West, Plato describes intuition as a pre-existing knowledge, residing in the “soul of eternity”.

All knowledge already exists, yet dormant, and it is up to us to tap into the soul of eternity through intuition, a phenomenon by which one becomes conscious of pre-existing knowledge.
Plato’s interpretation is by far the most spiritual, and for me, closer to the truth.

Conclusion

What Intuition is, where it comes from, or how it works exactly, is hard to describe. And the ancients believed it could be anything from magical to spiritual.  And they thought it is connected to the subconscious. Or it is dormant universal information, existing before we were born in the soul of eternity.

It all seems fantastical to me, and it is.

Trusting your intuition is one of the most mysterious experiences we can have.

And even through recent scientific studies have proven the positive effects of intuition, it still remains a mystery. But perhaps further investigation will crack this mystery one day.

The important thing is that you learn to use it to help you make faster, more accurate decisions.

The good news is that this is possible.

You can start training your intuition right now. Learning things like Reiki, Trance Healing, Soul Hunting, Shamanic Journeying, will help you to develop your intuition, and bring balance into your life.

Intuition VS Logic: How Do I Know When My Logic Is Incorrect?

Intuition VS Logic: How Do I Know When My Logic Is Incorrect?

Intuition, What Is It?

Intuition is important for what I do. I’ve been a shooter for the news for almost 30 years. When, I arrive at a scene, like a house fire, there is a lot happening, chaos, tears, shouts, and tragedy.

When, I arrive the first thing to do is get shots of the flames. And yet almost immediately I connect to the surrounding chaos.

I cut through it like a thick fog, and a stark clarity takes over my senses.

There is a rush of adrenaline, which seems to heighten my senses, specifically my intuition. And then I go forward and follow my instincts.

Talking to the right people in this kind of chaos, is something that will change the dynamic of the narrative immediately, and this opportunity is fleeting.

Everything is happening in real time, in the moment, so to speak.

I need to follow my intuition, but what is it?

Intuition

I have developed an intuition that always takes me to the right people I need to talk to.

Shooting news or shooting dramatic narrative film are exact opposites. I’ve done both

With movies, you spend all day creating the perfect moment, which becomes your scene, through light and camera and actor placements.

With the news, you arrive at a real life scene, and you have to be in the moment, as the story unfolds in real time.

Often the entire story, all the elements you need for a news story, will happen in five to ten minutes, and then the opportunity is gone.

A good shooter will intuitively capture the whole thing as it is happening.

To be able to get every angle, every element, every part of the story that happens in such a short time frame, you need to have the eye.

And that eye for many shooters is actually a highly trained intuition, which comes from years of experience.

Some are born with it.

For me it is a combination of experience, and my spiritual understanding, and appreciation of living in the moment.

If I relied purely on logic I would arrive at a scene, shoot the flames, and wait for a press release, or a fire chief clip after it was all over.

I would walk up to the first person I see, and get some generic, reactionary clip. Yet all of this can be done later.

On the other hand, when, I trust my intuition, as I’m shooting the flames, I might see a couple of people standing on a lawn, watching, and something tells me, a feeling, that they are the tragic home-owners.

I approach them. I have a feeling they’ll talk.

Indeed, they talk, and tell me, with tears in their eyes, that their cat has died in the flames.

It’s terrible and sad, and I feel for them, but now I have a story.

How Do I Know When My Logic Is Incorrect? My Intuition Tells Me.

This kind of street intuition works great when randomly asking pedestrians questions too, like, “who will you vote for?”

9 times out of 10 I always ask the person who will talk to me, instead of brushing me off.

I’ve also noticed this when going door to door, trying to find witnesses to local crimes.

Somehow I always know which house people will either answer the door, or not.

I seem to be able to pick the house that will deliver the best clips. I’m following a feeling that tells me where I should be knocking.

My Intuition

Intuition is hard to describe. In Zen Buddhism intuition is deemed a mental state between the Universal mind and one’s individual discriminating mind.

For me it’s a feeling.

And sometimes intuition comes to me through imagery, like mental pictures, none of which I can explain.

But how do I know when my logic is incorrect? My intuition tells me.

All I need to do is follow that first thing that I feel, or see in my minds eye.

If I do this, 9 out of 10 times my intuition will be correct.

In truth, when I’m on the street shooting news, I rarely use logic anymore.

Like a detective, using my intuition is important for what I do. And it proves that it can be used for more than just spiritual work.

Although having a well-developed intuition will set you apart from other energy workers, mediums, psychics, and tarot card readers, everyone can train their intuition; and it can be used in every kind of profession, or daily activity.

My Logic

Logic works for things like recognizing associations.

An example: when I arrive, hours after a crime has taken place, to a scene, and all the police tape has been ripped down, I need to find the crime house in question. The cops won’t give me the exact address.

In this case, it is always the one on the block that has the porch lights on.

Cops do this to indicate to other investigators the house in question.

The light being on as an association or sign is correct 99% of time.

It’s nearly scientific and fits into logic.

If the cops forget to turn the lights on, then I can only trust my intuition to tell me which house I need to shoot.

The good news is that I can find the house in question through my intuition too, it just might take I little longer.

Conclusion

Intuition and logic both have their functions.

For spiritual development, logic is great for learning.

Intuition is best when practically using what you have learned, and applying it to things like Reiki sessions, tarot readings, soul huntings, every spiritual work you can think of.

I realize now that the same kind of intuition, or gut instinct, I follow during working hours can be applied to anything in my life.

I think this is exciting, and an adventure.

Who knows what doors it will open in my life from this point on, and what mysteries I’ll find behind them?
