Practicing “Earth-Based” Intuition – Article in “Be Light Living” Magazine

Here is a new article I shared with Be Light Living magazine. In it I discuss aspects of practicing intuition with earth based naturalist practices like foraging, birding, or tracking.

“We can observe Nature; human and ecological, by learning to pay “intuitive attention” to the subtle cues we see, if we devote awareness to it. For example, it is one thing to hear a sound, or touch a thing, but very different to fully pay attention to what we are experiencing and to be able to recall it a few moments, or a few days later; which is actually a very good practice. This is especially important because in the modern society we live in, we are energetically invested in ignoring and de-sensitizing all of the input that comes into the senses; shielding the input sensors so that we don’t go into overload. Yet, in the natural world this is an animals only survival; an animal without this capacity has a different name; that name is dinner. Those are the signs of weakness or gaps in awareness; this is the exact moment when the predator strikes. The hungry predator has been waiting for this breech in attentiveness.”
