Intuition is not magic. It is the profound compression of an extraordinary base of experience from countless lives. As you awaken, the experience of all these lifetimes becomes available to you. The memory of these lifetimes is veiled by the drama of the event we call death.
Reality is an infinite ocean of consciousness; the process of creation provides a body as a vehicle for the force of our spirit while in the physical world. But life in the body lasts for a very short time, and when the body is dropped, the mind is freed from the shell of the physical body, stripped bare. Because the mind has taken false refuge in the individual identity while alive, the liberation of consciousness at death is so dramatic and intense that the mind is shocked into forgetfulness.
