Intuition is not something some of us have and others do not. We all have intuition. Using it, understanding and trusting it is something worth understanding.
Professionals such as Stock Brokers, Doctors, Nurses, Parents, etc. They have it. We all do. Choices are made everyday on Intuition. You will often here people say: ” I don’t know, just a gut feeling”. That’s right!
Here’s how you can get your’s up and running.
Intellectually most of us know what this means: Follow that voice in your heart, listen to your gut, the answer is within you. You always had the power!
It sounds simple, but for me it was developed over time by allowing myself to evolve and move forward, instead of wallowing in self-doubt. I remember so many instances in my life when I quashed my gut’s opinion and did what I thought I was “suppose” to do, instead of what I knew in my gut was right. I also took it upon myself to enroll in a Metaphysical School and meet like minded people.
Im not saying thats for you but I needed to understand what I then looked at as a curse. It was really a gift.
Meditation. It really helps.
My Professor taught me how to sit silently and allow this to just be.
What I love about meditating is the space we find in between, where one thought has ended and another one hasn’t quite yet begun. We can rest, reflect and rejuvenate in that natural, quiet space. This is where understanding, clarity and compassion are born and nurtured. It’s a safe space to get to know yourself — to sit in the stillness, to tune into what is within. Regular meditation, wherever you do it, keeps our intuition fresh and present.
No more self harm… Yea, I did it too.
We’ve all got our own form of self-harm (over-indulging, isolating, boozing, etc.). But the biggest harm we do to ourselves is by staying stuck, staying ignorant in our beliefs that we aren’t worthy. When step away from self-harm — when we begin to look at ourselves with compassion and forgiveness — we begin to let down the angry guard that wants to punish us and instead, fill up that space with loving, mindfulness.
We can now begin to tap into our gut on a deeper level.
Break your bond to things that you are attached to. THINGS!
I will admit I have a junk drawer and a very disorganized closet. Ugh! I started cleaning things out, donating, recycling. Clutter be gone!
I was also taught to let go of grudges that I held onto.
When we release and let go of very deep seeded attachments we give ourself permission to fully let go. We begin to create the space we need to relax and trust ourselves. We begin to listen to and to rely on our intuition.
Get Back to you!
It’s easy to get into the habit of compulsively searching, seeking, and rushing from one thing to the next, to keep ourselves distracted from uncomfortable feelings. Stop running away from yourself and instead, run toward yourself. Trust that you hold the answers. When we feel at home with ourselves we begin to feel safe in the world and we start to listen and pay attention to our intuition.
Please relax, take nice in and out breathes and journal.
Here’s to you!
