The Energy Season of Metal Element
- Quality #1 Clear Intellect
Create a better life story when you resonate with
the best of nature and your inner connection
Do you have this on your computer? With my latest installment of Microsoft Office suite came a daily pop up window with links to news, weather sports and life articles etc. I initially found it interesting, but eventually started to tune out the 'BuzzFeed' links and other things that are mere propaganda. But recently, one article caught my eye and I found it so wrong I finally deleted - the whole app.
The article had pictured Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a smiling relaxed pose on a local TV talk show. The caption read "Trudeau does this everyday to make money and shows audience how they too can use this technique." The banner had recognizable logos... "As seen on Forbes, Global TV, Globe and Mail, etc." it looked like proof that the article was real even though intellectually I knew Trudeau would never have that kind of pep talk for the audience.
It took me a few minutes to finally discern that the article was pure fake news. I immediately informed the vendors on how their logos were being misrepresented. In a few hours the article was removed.
Energetically this is an example of the metal element quality of Clear Intellect - the faculty of reasoning and objective understanding. This is a profound quality to resonate with and we have to do what we can to protect this quality in us. It is a quality we use everyday but none as important for example as being a good citizen, researching candidates and our duty to be an informed voter and vote.
The current election cycle gives us the opportunity to use our clear intellect to make the best decisions for ourselves and what we feel is best for our country. Unfortunately there are strategists out there that try to get us to doubt ourselves and the facts. Advertisements and social media messages are generated to get us to ignore facts, believe out-right lies and vote a certain way out of fear. Informed reasoning is thrown out the window!
We are then vulnerable to the bombardment of current of political messages that villainize people, and tugs at our basic instinct to look for things to be afraid of.. when none exist. Our quality of clear intellect dissolves. Our energy spirals down. And we can feel anxious, afraid and unhappy.
When we resonate with having and using our natural quality of clear intellect, we easily probe to find what is true or not true, what is fact or fiction. This quality shows up in our thinking that will confidently question everything. In my own example I was curious enough to question the article and its source and to contact the logo owners. By the end of the day I confidently deleted that pop up news feature from my computer and sent feedback to Microsoft. It felt uplifting!
Our questioning can lead to judgments but a resonance with clear intellect will make that judgment compassionate and understanding. We'll also get a sense of whether we can trust the information or not.
