Intuition and Thoughts

Category:  Ask Deepak

Question:

Deepak, How do we decipher between "we are not our thoughts (the voice in the head)" from our intuition when trying to make a decision? This is almost a contradiction of terms. How do we know which is the right feeling, the right road to take?


Response:

Intuition is not really a thought or a running dialogue, it is a quiet sense of things. The chatter of thoughts that run through our heads feels very different from intuition. The stream of thoughts is driven by habit and conditioning and is usually tinged with emotions. Intuition is not emotional nor is it derived from old conditioning or fear, it has a simple purity to it that is almost impersonal.

  • The Brain should be the tool or medium through which we understand and express that which resides in our hearts .

  • My intuition is almost a physical feeling. I left a crowded place on Friday because I picked up an air of aggression although nothing was said or done. Half an hour later, some friends who had remained told me a big fight had broken out, involving a man punching a woman. It`s not necessarily a negative feeling, a `right` feeling can guide you too.

    Scarlet // 2013-01-06 18:10:31 // //
  • I agree that in intuition is not a thought, does that imply that whether if its negative or positive , one cannot condition themselves to alter it?

    AfricanKingandQueen // 2013-01-04 18:21:10 // //
  • intuition is the calm certitude that you get often unbidden. i feel mine in my stomach. a "thought" will say take that route and your head argues with it so you drive the other route only to find there`s a road block... and you say to yourself. i knew i should have taken the other route

  • The right feeling feels good. Loving words with light intentions always feel good. They propel creation. The more loving ~ the more intelligent. We are being guided right now through divine intentions from high realms. Their wisdom is diamonds to our soul.

  • @Kenny Wiggins - There is much of what Deepak teaches that is found in the scriptures. Just as science knows more today than it did 2000 yrs ago, shouldn't we also advance our spiritual understanding? This is how I consider Deepak's wisdom... as an advanced form of spiritual wisdom shared. This additional wisdom doesn't take away from Jesus or the truth found in scripture. Truth is singular - but the journey to it is very different for us all. Please know - God doesn't fall off His throne because people seek truth. He is the truth, right? So, may I encourage you not to move from love to judgement, disparaging others created by Him. Peacefully consider wisdom WITH your truth... you'll find your truth can and will continue to grow just as science has.... peace to you friend.

  • Dear Kenny Wiggins. You have your own beliefs and that is fine. But everyone else has their own personal beliefs. They may not be the same as yours, but we all have the freedom to choose our own beliefs without other people telling us we are wrong. NAMASTE- The spirit in me honors the spirit in you. g.

  • When i follow my heart it turns out to be the right choice. But the heart is not always responsive and some times a strong wish also feels like hearts voice. Its tricky, and not many people have ears for the heart

    Aisha Imtiaz // 2012-12-28 10:17:15 // //
  • @Deepak Chopra-- So you in your conscience know that stealing is wrong and that murdering is wrong. God has written it in our hearts. Have you ever stolen something? Even if it was something small. Or have you ever said God's name in vain? That is called blasphemy and is a very bad sin. Or have you told a lie? That is a sin as well. Me I am guilty of all these. Everyone has fallen short of the glory of God. Each one of us. Not one person can say they are perfect. Did you know that in Matthew 5:27-28 New King James Version (NKJV) Jesus said, 27 “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery. 28 But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart."----- So He judges our inner thoughts as well. So God sees sin and can't touch it because He is Holy. So God is a righteous Judge and has to punish sin and what does that mean you ask. He has to judge us guilty of those sins because He is a righteous Judge. Now answer this please, that if someone murders one of your close relatives and the case against the one who murdered your family member was guilty because the evidence was there to prove it, would you want the judge to send him to prison? I hope you say "yes". So we are guilty and have to face a righteous judge and the penalty is death. But did you know that God did something for us so we wouldn't have to die and go to hell? By His grace He sent His only begotten Son Jesus Christ and He lived a perfect life here on earth to fulfill the law for us, something we couldn't do. It's like Jesus Christ went into the courtroom and told the judge that He was going to pay the fine for us. Isn't that amazing!!! He took the punishment for you already and it satisfied God that He did that. So all sin was put on Him even though He lived a perfect life on earth. He died on the Cross and was buried and on the third day He rose by the Power of The Holy Spirit and now Jesus Christ our Lord sits on the right hand of God The Father. Those who have faith in Jesus Christ our Lord, meaning to believe and put your trust in Jesus Christ The Lord and repent (turn away from sin), (this can be done by the power of The Holy Spirit) will have eternal life. This is the only way. Nobody else died for sins but Jesus Christ our Lord. Put your trust in Him. Ask Him to help you and He will.

    Kenny Wiggins // 2012-12-28 02:24:38 // //
  • You'll see Timothy Smith-- You and Deepak Chopra and everybody will bow down to Jesus Christ the Lord and say He is Lord and you will confess to God. One day, and it is coming whether you like it or not. Jesus Christ is Divine and that is it. Jesus Christ is The King of kings and The Lord of lords. This is for you too Deepak Chopra. I've had enough of your lies Deepak. You write books about The Savior Jesus Christ our Lord and spread lies. You don't know what you are talking about. Jesus Christ is Lord. I serve an awesome God. Praise be to God The Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Praise be to Almighty God Jesus Christ who is The Spirit, Amen.

    Kenny Wiggins // 2012-12-28 02:21:21 // //
  • Sorry if I have offended any body with my straightforward blunt opinions of Spirit and the Yoniverse

    Timothy Smith // 2012-12-28 01:09:54 // //
  • We all have the channel to Christ consciousness with in our self s Christ was trying to show us that we are all exactly the same and that we all posses the Devine connection to GOD weather you Relize it or not . Mankind s greatest illusion is that we are seperate from God or Isolated. When in fact we are GOD and we are Connected in a Devine network of Creation and God Conscious Universal beings.... We are all one we are all brothers and sisters and we are all tapped in.

    Timothy Smith // 2012-12-28 01:08:30 // //
  • Its not so complicated at all ,, Listen to your heart ALWAYS, You heart is your direct line to spirit. You heart WILL NOT LIE TO YOU EVER!!!! The complications and confusion set in when we second guess our heart while using our brain to reason theu a situation , while all along the answer you seek is sitting in your heart. You already know the answers You already Feel the answers Or ask your Dream state self before you fall asleep at night to reveal the answer, Your subconscious self will listen to your heart more readily than the waking self .

    Timothy Smith // 2012-12-28 01:04:04 // //
  • I would say it doesn`t ultimately matter whether you walk through door A or door B... they are both doorways to growth.. so the real question is never "what to do" but rather "what`s my motivation, what`s my intention", and if ones intention is to grow, to learn, to become everything one can be, then whatever one chooses WILL be the Guidance of Grace... I believe it was Aurobindo who said "the stress of egoistic choice"... forget about that "what to do" question, rather focus on the purity on your heart`s intention to see Truth, to understand what you don`t understand, to align yourself with Truth, Grace, God, whatever you wanna call it... there are no "wrong" choices, there is only learning. One wants to rise above "right and wrong", above and beyond.. With love, natacha

  • Peace Be With You!! "Intuition is not emotional nor is it derived from old conditioning or fear, it has a simple purity to it that is almost impersonal." This is truly what it is. The communication is seemingly subtle, and can easily be overlooked. Once you train your mind to be silent more often, the intuitive nature flourishes. It's a gift I could never do without! https://www.facebook.com/yourspiritualfriend?ref=tn_tnmn

  • Thank you for this question and for featuring this and your response Deepak. I have been battling being in limbo about a decision just not able to tell which one is purer and not out of fear..I am vacillating and it`s distressing. I need to look for that which is a "quiet sense of things" and impersonal/not emotional.

  • What do you mean Deepak that intuition is not an emotion? How I read my intuition is that it has different levels which connect to emotions as well. For me to be able to understand the message it brings I need to break it down and use all my human senses and levels. Or maybe everyone has her own way of using intuition.

  • More elements activate intuition than sense of smell - it's different for each individual. It can be connected to any, all, or none of the other senses. Opening the heart is key.

  • Thank you for your wisdom!

    Irma Mercado // 2012-12-27 10:43:06 // //
  • Intuition is activated by the sense of smell..intuition is the intepretation. Smokers have a dulled sense of intuition and so do those with chronic sinisitis..for example.

The beach? Etc... I feel so blessed to have you in my life.. You are such a gift to the universe! So wise!!! And so brilliant!!! I love your shares about your father and mother.., how lucky both your brother and you were to have had such good mentors...how lucky your children am grand children and we are to have you!

  • It starts with raising our children "The way we talk to our children becomes their inner-voice". * It is the same principle with us as adults. The way in which we talk to ourselves opens up our conscious, our intuition, .....being gentle in life helps.

  • I needed to hear this today as I make some decisions that I think may be ego based. My intuition is more physical I think. My ego is more thought based. I think I just need to pay attention to my body, especially my heart.

  • I go with my first gut feelings, I have had the capacity to see since I was three years old, but before I mgte rocks thrown at me, as usaul, Jesus aklso had this gift.....So no I do not think it's something evil, if anything I try to help others arpoound me. There is aa diffrence also between wanting soemthing, and the "intuition," we as humans, have a hard time seperating the both. Just listen yo your heart what does it tell you? I'll betcha your heart will always give u the right answer but at tiems the truth will hurt, after ALL WE ARE ONLY HUMANS.....

  • My experience is that the intuition is quiet sincerity like that of a child. It comes from deep inside, underneath the belly where emotions so often churn. It is a knowing that has no requirement for explanation or proof. It can be shouted down by thoughts and tussled by emotions, but the intuitions' simplicity and direct clarity is undeniable.

    Beth Carter // 2012-12-27 05:42:59 // //
  • It is a question of listening to what lives, is grounded in and shines from the heart. Brain chatter is just that. Intuition and spiritual messages are at once from the heart and from the cosmos. What the brain producer by itself is either knowledge or illusion. The other is wisdom.

  • now i'm more confused than before :-/ intuition isn't an inner dialogue, it's not emotional, it's not a thought... okay, but how does it "talk" to me then? if i know something is right, than this IS a feeling, and that is emotional, isn't it?

  • When my intuition comes through it is often so strong I move physically towards where I am being led before I understand it such as turning down a street I didn't intend to or suddenly leaving where I am for no reason. It always proves to be the right decision where thought can often do the opposite...especially obsessive thought and indecision. I have finally come to understand that for me...if I am having trouble making a decision I need to stop and so nothing or say no.

  • I have found that we can decipher through the distortions to clear intuition by accumulating subjective points of reference. We can develop intuition much like a skill by paying attention and comparing our experiences of when we are accurate and when we are not. We often feel as though we are making it up. It takes time, patience and practice.

  • First, u must reconcile with true self and make peace with (them). Then it's clear of who you are. Your thinking is no longer cluttered and persuaded by a failing system.

  • I think so!!!

    Soledad Rozo // 2012-12-26 21:40:43 // //
  • Exactly! Whenever I'm confronted with a decision to make. I step away from all the considerations and feelings I have about it and just think of the situation if I chose option A, and I listen to my body to see how it responds while playing this out in my head. I then do the same thing with option B. The choice that leaves my body the calmest is the decision I go with and is almost always the best one for me at that moment. If I have any stomach flutters, heart racing, anxiety or hesitation, then I know it is not for my best interests.

  • The meaning of life is hidden between the fold of instinct and ambition.

    Bil Zenovic // 2012-12-26 21:35:00 // //
  • A thought is some thing that has been thought out . An intuition is a gut feeling of an thought . My opinion .

    Diana Ocasio Holistichealthcoach // 2012-12-26 21:34:58 // //
  • I view intuition as the practice, though often done unconsciously, of the science of geometric perception. When one's eye is open, without the mind's shadow diminishing the view, there is so much to See.

    Franklin Melnick // 2012-12-26 21:34:49 // //
  • That's of course a PERFECT answer! Thank you!

    Sharon Brellis // 2012-12-26 21:34:39 // //
  • Maybe what you say is true for most Dr. Chopra, but I have dialogues with my Soul/Higher Self/God every day, and have since I was a little girl. I also get the "quiet knowing" often, but the dialogue is real and is not my ego. When I hear people say that "God is in silence" I don't understand it, because in my experience Spirit is very verbal. I feel it in my heart first, like I do the quiet form of intuition, but then it translates into words in my mind, and it's always so absolutely loving that there is no possible way it's my ego. I've been having spiritual experiences of the major, life-altering variety since I was 4 years old. I hope this helps anyone that experiences Spirit the way I do. Namaste. <3

    Emma Dammann // 2012-12-26 21:30:48 // //
  • Most people are enslaved to the idea that the chatter is them. It makes life a constant battle. Yoga is my intuition and balance.

    Shawna Stafford // 2012-12-26 21:29:24 // //

  • Hi-Thanks. My husband always says that he is intuitive as a painter (fine art landscapes www.jonthanfrankstudio.com) and we talk about what this means but sometimes the talk is too self involved. Your discussion of this has really helped me be one with what he means when he talks of his intuition and his way as a painter. :)

I know one thing I was driving and looked at my phone and a pastor posted dry up your tears when I am in front of a church and than you came on my phone with your brain post and all of a sudden a car comes flying by me I look up and it pulls in front of me and JESUS was on the bumper . The golden temple of India comes on posting Good Morning . An india friend he post he is with his friend sabbath King and a car pulls up with King 1 . Beyond my understanding all of this . I was going to type you about Kim Kardashian typing Amen when I was on the eliptical and Anne here in Holland here is posting the same colors as you and types AMEN .. 2013 WISHES... May God grant you 12 months of HAPPY , 52 weks of fun , 365 days of success, 8,760 hours of Good Health , 525,600 minutes of Good Luck , 3,153,600 seconds of JOY . Billy Blanks here always ... He comes on every single time as soon as I am done at the gym . He never misses . He is posting a Film he was in ... well maybe God will let me know what this is all about here because never experienced anything like all this in my entire Life here <3
