Trust Your Intuition

According to Wikipedia, intuition is defined as the ability to acquire knowledge without inference or the use of reason.

We are involved in one of the most fascinating times in human history. Malnourished from years of fear-based conditioning and abuse of power, our steadfast rules and ideals have come undone, paving the way for radical change. Intuitive, creative and compassionate creatures, rather than being shunted aside (or worse, persecuted), are faring quite well for the foreseeable future. The new world is shedding her collective ego and opening her heart.

This heart opening, inner knowing or gut instinct guides many through the ebb and flow of life. Go against your gut and you will often experience an event you could have avoided… had you only listened. How many times have you heard yourself or others say, I knew better, I wish I would have followed my instincts?

 

Developing Your Intuition

If you want to develop your intuition, you have to learn to trust yourself. Over analyzing every decision in your life can create confusion and mental paralysis. If you don’t trust yourself you may spend endless amounts of time looking for validation and external data to support your decision. What if you began to tune into your body and notice how you feel when something big comes up? When faced with an obstacle, invitation or opportunity, check in with how you feel. Your first instinct will almost always be the true for you. A healthy combination of factual information and heightened intuition = GOLD.

 

Tuning in to Your Intuition

With so much information flying at us from our friends, family, the internet, TV, radio, blogs, podcasts etc. It’s easy to lose track of your inner-voice. The only way to listen to your intuition is being open and available for your small voice. The small voice or inner-voice that has been with you since you were born. You can tune in to your intuition when you allow your mind to relax. Mediation is a great way to clear the clutter from your mind while open the door to your inner-voice. Sit. Breathe. Empty your mind. Even a few minutes each day will make a positive impact on your life. Create some time to be still and notice what comes up for you.

Develop and tune in to your intuition and you will tap into a wellspring of power within. You deserve to step into your intuitive power.

Trust yourself.
