Pat McNamara - Pre-Incident Indicators
Hunt it, kill it, eat it! This idiom starts a chapter in a new book that I am writing and addresses your question to some degree. This particular chapter will discuss regaining one’s intuitive nature. In each of lives a primal side. A set of survival skills passed down from a million years ago.
Each of us continuously takes in millions of pieces of information every day, the great majority of which are processed unconsciously. Some people take in this information primarily through their five senses—what they see, hear, touch, taste, or smell. Others take in information through their sixth sense, focusing not on what is, but rather on what could be.
Each of us has the ability to use both Sensing and Intuition, and all of us do use both every day.
Intuition is a gift that we humans are born with. We can exercise this function and make it stronger, like we do with our muscles. Intuition ‘works’ when we put our five other senses aside. Intuition is our sixth sense, but is often stifled by our culture’s over dependence on the five senses of the material world. When we tap into our intuition, decisions that seemed difficult to make suddenly gain more clarity.
Now days, we are so connected that we are disconnected. Our situational awareness is nearly non-existent. We are fat dumb and happy button pushers. Comfortable, flaccid and complacent. Society is trying to coerce us into being subservient to political correctness and we are subliminally manipulated into believing certain things or to follow the status quo.
Being eternally vigilant can be exhausting. Being prepared to save your life, the life of your loved ones, or your team mate will require work. Sweat equity. We expect our kids to look both ways before crossing the street but we won’t look behind us while at an ATM because we don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. Boo Hoo! We often relinquish our intuitive nature and will do this at the cost of our own safety.
Intuitiveness is a gift and a primal instinct that we cannot afford to relinquish. Mitigate having to ask “How did I get here?” A little situational awareness goes a long way.
Try to see things full spectrum. Perform a focal shift in your everyday life. Look around. Slow down before you park and take a look at the other vehicles in your proximity. It is OK. You were born to do this. A successful assault happens with surprise, speed, and violence of action. We can mitigate the surprise by being tuned in or situationally aware.
If we take the element of surprise away from a predator, he will fear reprisal and will forgo the attack because of this trepidation of compromise.
It is simple tactics. Action versus reaction. If you are aware, you are acting. If you are switched off and have no situational awareness, you are one step behind and will at some point in time, fall into a predator’s web.
