Balance Your Thinking and Feeling Natures
As a soul here on Planet Earth you have two parts to your nature; your intellectual nature and your feeling nature.
Your intellectual nature is the logical, analyzing, dissecting, organizing part of you. Your feeling nature is your intuition, experiences, desires and where the real power lies. When we talk about your intuition or psychic ability; we are really referring to this feeling nature.
You need both of these parts of your nature to be in balance. This is not about diminishing the intellect. The intellect is not bad. It just needs to be used for the correct purpose. The purpose of your intellectual nature is to organize you and direct you toward what you desire to achieve.
The feeling nature is the power of you as a soul. It has infinite awareness. It is the initial inspiration or desire that motivates you to organize yourself toward a goal and take action.
When your intellectual and feeling natures are in balance you willl be in the right place at the right time and feel in the Flow of Life. Your flow in Balance is Feel – Think – Act. In other words, you will get an impression, feeling or desire through your Feeling Nature, then Organize that idea to be able to be accomplished with your Intellectual Nature, and the Act or Do it! The Feel – Think – Act flow just keeps moving at your own pace.
The trouble occurs when a person gets out of balance. If a person has an over-developed intellect and an underdeveloped feeling nature, this is a semi-intellectual state of consciousness. If you’re in this out of balance state, you might over-analyze things, doubt yourself, limit yourself, worry, etc. It’s too much thinking and not enough feeling and acting. The over-thinking will cause you to limit yourself and hold yourself back. Your habits are doubting yourself, limiting yourself and worrying. Instead of Feel – Think – Act this is more like Feel, Think, Think, Think, Think, maybe act. Or maybe go back to feeling then over-thinking again! If you have a tendency to over-think or procrastinate then you know you are experiencing a semi-intellectual state of consciousness. You don’t act on your ideas because you’ve analyzed the initial idea so much that you’ve talked yourself out of it completely. No wonder this type of person often feels stuck.
If a person has an over-developed feeling nature and an underdeveloped intellectual nature, they are experiencing the Unbalanced Feeling State of Consciousness. They have a tendency to do everything for everybody else and leave themselves out. Or they lack organization and direction from their intellectual nature to make their actions effective. They tend to be a daydreamer. They have lots of feelings, inspirations and ideas but don’t put them into action. The daydreaming about their ideas is more fun than actually doing something about it.
You probably recognize yourself in all three of these different states of consciousness. Your goal will be to come back to balance as often as you can. When you’re balanced everything flows. When little challenges come up, you can regroup it and keep moving towards what you desire. It’s important to have clear direction. If you have no goals, you’ll get stuck along the way.
