Intuitive Thinking: Clearing the Way
by Karen Johnson
Copyright © 2010

Intuitive thinking rules our inner realms. Truth and integrity are stalwart members of the foundation of this thinking process. It is the way we express inner knowledge and our innermost truths. While some distract themselves with external stimuli there is a growing group of citizens who understand that intuitive thinking is a form of knowledge and that Knowledge equals Power.

Where do we go to release ourselves from the enslavement of rigid, repetitive, analytical thinking that creates a narrow scope that can sometimes feel like it’s choking the life force out of us? This type of thinking and living can sometimes create an atmosphere where it’s easier to go unconscious and not ask questions. This lack of curiosity and vision where you believe whatever is said to be the acceptable way of thinking and of addressing situations or problems.

Like an active growing cancer cell, this unconscious thought process creates a force field that eats away at any potential for new growth in thinking, speaking and accessing the intuitive highway map of information.

Intuitive thinking has a broadband power that can be exercised and controlled as a tool and used to the best advantage and in the highest good of all. It must always be used in a manner of highest integrity. Any deviation from this path will bring with it appropriate justice from universal law.

often our lives are fraught with commotion and the busyness of day-to-day living. We hold a treasury of gems within us but frequently create commotion, chaos, disorder, disarray… anything that keeps us from engaging in that internal stillness. This stillness is in each of us but there can be an underlying fear of pain in embracing this state so that some will do almost anything to keep it at bay. This does not come from your ordinary waking consciousness. It comes from your unconscious and impacts on many levels stopping you from creating the type of life you truly want to live. It can nurture the fear inside and make you even more resistant to change. It can make your verbal communications quite volatile and throw your energy right out of sync. We need to consciously choose to desist from this negative internal warfare and allow ourselves to move forward.


The power of prayer has been with us since the earliest recorded times. It’s a way to communicate and focus the energy and the thought to create action. Whatever form of prayer you use, and there are many forms, it is the simple formula of creating a clear intention, focusing your awareness on the intention and enlisting the help of the divine or universal consciousness and then letting it go.

Trust the outcome will be in the highest good of all concerned and simply embrace and celebrate that intention. The power of prayer and the power of thought are not regulated or dictated by any religious dogma, political or spiritual affiliations: they are free for all.


The power of thought creates the link of allowing yourself to just be. Be in the moment, no expectations, no requirements, allowing you to be with the energy. So often our ordinary waking consciousness trips us up by bringing to the surface unrelated and unwanted feelings, thoughts, images… anything to distract us from the purpose at mind or to sabotage us.

With our ordinary waking consciousness we need to ensure that we have really grounded ourselves, whether it’s using tried and true coping methods such as: visualizing roots from our feet planted firmly in the ground, or a solid metal tube dropping down from our spine connecting us to the earth to ensure we are in a calm, centered space where we have clarity; instead of being bogged down by worrisome, self-defeating and self-sabotaging messages keeping us from moving forward with gentle awareness of who we are and what we represent.


We are part of creating a group consciousness which paves the way for a new style of communication. Understand that we have already entered a whole new frontier. Communication is about how we receive and relay information and express it to others. Some rules may still apply but the guidelines are set out by us and the expectations we as a society have bought into.

Our communications can be laden with underlying tensions. There is much energy loaded into even our most innocuous exchanges. On the surface what is a seemingly innocent conversation upon reflection can be littered with much deeper meaning.

Our words are only a small fraction of the transaction; much more takes place on the energetic and symbolic level. Many stay unaware of the energetic impact this places on our system and the system of those surrounding us.

Displaced thoughts just like displaced people have an energy and create a force field. The more we try to conceal the more we unwittingly reveal about the deeper meanings because we’re investing more energy into them.


Although all directions eventually lead us home, we become entangled in the internal murmurings of self-doubt. Sometimes we hit an impasse not knowing which track to follow. How do I know I am moving ahead in the direction that is right for me?

Others appear to seamlessly move upon their path, but you catch yourself thinking it’s different for me. What if I take the wrong step? The wrong direction? The wrong decision? Then, where will I be?

Let’s start with where you wouldn’t be. You wouldn’t be deeply ensconced in inertia. You wouldn’t be paralyzed by fear. Your life wouldn’t be stagnating. You would be moving ahead. The energy and the mechanisms of the lifecycle would be continually flowing and you would be creating change.


We are here to bring about change within ourselves and our global community. Change within and change throughout which sometimes feels like a daunting task.

We live in a society that honours and cherishes free speech, yet we seem constantly erecting barriers to block our own progress on freedom of thought. It is freedom of thought that exposes and reveals us for who we are. Conversations with others are not solely the important dialogues that we have in our life. Sometimes the dialogues that we have within ourselves can help to free or imprison us even deeper into unconscious patterns that hold and caress us into a stupefying silence that can enter our soul. If we can honour ourselves and those with whom we engage, then we are creating a field of integrity, of ethics, of beauty in pursuing our own inner truths.
