The Spiritual Gift Of Intuition

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is intuition. “Intuition is a spiritual faculty and does not explain, but simply points the way" (Florence S. Shinn). An Alcoholics Anonymous promise: “We will intuitively know how to handle situations, which used to baffle us.” Intuition is a wonderful Spiritual gift of grace; the power to knowing without reasoning. We cannot earn grace nor can we prevent this free gift from our Father. Intuition is our direct communication with our Father, deeper than words. Intuition is for me the most reassuring reality of our Father’s loving grace, mercy and divine union. It reminds me of our Father’s Omnipresence. No matter what is going on in the outside world, there is a knowing all is His Will and Love being done, understood or not. How are we to “Pay Forward” intuition, which is a gift of grace? Alcoholics Anonymous offers us a simple solution. We can accept our inadequacies, fears, weaknesses and mistakes, surrender them to our Father. We can share our love, experience, strength and hope with one another. We can love and worship our Father by living our Program the best we can daily. Silence is our Father’s first language and most often communicated through intuition. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
