You can open your consciousness to the sky by allowing the information that flows into your right hemisphere to inform your left hemisphere. To do this you must desist from dismissing your spontaneous insights, feelings and intuitions as fantasy; you must hold them and reflect on them as potentially deeply meaningful segments of your life’s experience …
Einstein, who was a highly intuitive person, noted that, in science, imagination is more important than reasoning. And Thomas Edison declared, in a little-known but remarkable essay, … People say I have created things. I have never created anything. I get impressions from the Universe at large and work them out, but I am only a plate on a record or a receiving apparatus … (Gary Indiana Gazette, 1911).

Most of us have not been encouraged to develop our intuitive sides and our minds are often so full of our own internal chatter that we are unaware of our intuitive responses when they do happen. They come and they go, and we often barely register them. When we do, we quickly forget them or ignore them in favour of the rational view. Our conditioned belief is that the intuition is not real, it is of no importance (therefore give it no time or energy), and it is not to be trusted or acted upon … When in fact the opposite is true.
Learning to receive and to trust these hidden and previously underestimated parts of ourselves requires that we look at our old beliefs about this, reframe them and tell ourselves a new story. Once we decide to engage with our receptive selves as well as our active selves, and learn to trust our own experiences and senses, the doors will open to this delightfully rich and natural part of who we also are.
