Druidry - Intuition And The Unconscious

Druidry - Intuition And The Unconscious

Our brains absorb far more information every day than we can consciously process.

This means that the bits of our brains we aren’t conscious of do a lot of sifting, assessing and collating where we can’t see ourselves doing it. Unconscious brain functions are wonderful, strange things. It fascinates me that there are bits of us we have no conscious access too that are busily working away to keep us viable and operational. 

Our unconscious minds don’t work in the same way as the conscious stuff. They tend to be wilder and more likely to communicate in symbols and metaphors. This is the bit of us that makes lightening connections, it’s where ideas begin and flashes of inspiration come from. Unconscious processing is a very good, rational explanation for where intuition comes from.

If you’re happy with just accepting your intuition, this will be of no consequence. However, many people do struggle to trust themselves and to trust those gut feelings. We’re encouraged to think of our feelings as intrinsically irrational. This is of great service to anyone who wants to make us do things we don’t like (that would be capitalist society). Your unconscious mind is part of your animal self and it doesn’t want to be stressed sick all the time while doing dull, pointless or unsatisfying things. 

Open up to your gut feelings and intuition and your ability to function smoothly in a consumer society hell bent on destruction is likely to be compromised. 

If you do want this part of yourself, there’s a lot to be said for making some space and inviting it in. The unconscious likes to surface in unstructured ways so things like daydreaming, doodling, and improvised dance can help it bubble up into your awareness. Paying attention to dreams can help. Oracle cards and other forms of divination can be great for having a conversation with yourself. 

What we all need more than anything else isn’t the ability to predict the future, but the ability to understand ourselves in the present. What we might call intuition is part of the self trying to express significant things to other parts of the self. The more we’ve crushed our feelings and treated them as irrational, the weirder they seem when they show up. The more room we make for how we experience life, the more sense any given encounter with our deep selves will be.
