Confusion is something we all deal with at any crossroad.
Unsure of which choice or direction is best for us, without a guarantee of the outcome, requires us to use our intuition. We have all heard the expressions "follow your heart" or "follow your gut instinct".
Subconsciously we are aware of the choices that are best for us, but this awareness can get lost in the fog of self-doubt, ego, fear, or by relying too much on logical thinking.
That does not mean we should all run around acting irrational, of course; it simply means that true happiness, fulfillment, completion, and the life-altering events that helps us achieve these states of bliss are often found by taking a path that is led by your intuition and not your intellect.
Intellect is used to handle the material aspects of how the world works, in order to help the deepest desires of the soul manifest in our lives.
In this meditation, our goal is to help you tap into your intuition, your subconscious, your higher self. In other words, the part of you that knows what your unique individual needs, desires and purpose truly are.
The inspiration behind the imagery used for this exercise is snow - the silence of it, but also its visual stimulation, helps clear the mind of clutter and allows the inner voice to be heard.
Snow's white color is purifying and will assist you in releasing all the overwhelming contamination of over-thinking. White also provides an unimposing backdrop that will allow your subconscious to project a clear image of what your intuition has been trying to tell you all along.
For this exercise, think of an issue or an area of your life that you are confused or undecided about. Enter the mediation knowing the topic you need guidance on; then put it aside, and begin your meditation.
