See, Feel, Know | Mind, Heart, Gut

See, Feel, Know | Mind, Heart, Gut
This entry is part 24 of 24 in the series Decide

See it in your mind, feel it in your heart, know it in your gut.

When all three of your “decision-making” centers are working in cohesion, you’re unstoppable.

They are each different, almost with their own “personality” (see video below for a completely wacky video of me explaining the three centers).

They work together (or not!) and you have to sometimes wait for the 2-1 vote or 1-2 vote and go with what you “think” (or feel or know…) is the right answer.

It’s not always as easy as the math. Just because it’s a 2-to-1 vote doesn’t mean it’s guaranteed the right thing to do. This is where it goes from a science to an art.

DISCLAIMER: This post is sponsored by my morning meditation. It’s when clarity hits and, once in a while, fairly often, OK, almost every day, I get some big download of a message, an idea, a concept, or a clear smack in the side of the head of, “Oh, so that’s what this was all about.” This was one of those. Mind –> Heart –> Gut and See –> Feel –> Know.

From Faith to Belief

A friend said the other day, “From faith to belief.” It was from a “feeling” to a “knowing.” Just like, “I feel it in my heart” but “I know it in my gut.”

But then really know it. Not, I think, I’m pretty sure, I’m almost convinced, but I know it. I believe it.

“I’ll see it when I believe it.”

— Wayne Dyer

I know we can get there with lots of elements of our lives. Sure, not the upcoming lottery numbers but still big events like “What am I supposed to be doing this year?”

Notice I didn’t ask, “What am I supposed to be doing with my life?” but just this year. Or, who knows, this month.

“I’ll see it once I close my eyes.”

— Bradley Charbonneau

Clarity is there for us, we just need to take it off the shelf and put it in our cart. Oh, it’s also free. Well, “free” in the sense that it doesn’t cost more than asking for it. But we do have to ask.

That’s the first step, the beginning, then we can let it slide into us from above into our mind then our heart then our gut. Then we take a vote, see if any of those voters have an especially strong say in the matter, and make a decision.

OK, whew.

That’s all I have for now.

But this morning’s meditation was a beauty. Also unexpected in that I jumped in at “wish/desire/plan” #3 and went with it. What I got was that I just wanted to See as that was the beginning of the process. Once I could See, I can help “see” the other decision-makers.

It worked this morning and now I’m going to go play with the other download I had: From A to B to See.

Here’s more on our three decision-making centers as seen from the perspective of asking a question.

See, Feel, Know

Somehow, it seems to start with See yet it’s not necessarily seeing with the eyes.
