Do you trust your intuition?
Many of my clients are experiencing anxiety about the new year. It seems that something new is brewing, but fear of the unknown in an unpredictable world is paralyzing growth.
Intuition is defined as the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning. It’s your knowing. It’s the little voice that you most likely ignore.
Even ancient scriptures encourage you to listen to the voice:
Wether you turn to your right or to your left, your ears will hear a voice behind you saying, “This is the way, walk in it.”
Why don’t you listen to your intuition?
It’s a fair question worth being curious about.
Have you ever experienced a time when you knew what to do, but chose a familiar path to be safe, only to later wish you had listened to that nudge from inside?
Are you afraid of making a mistake or a wrong decision?
Does trusting your inner voice seem dangerous?
Are you afraid of being singled out or standing alone?
You and I are conditioned to become the victim of outside influences. It is easier to blame people or circumstances for your inability to create the life you want. It is time to become aware of the familiar thoughts and feelings keeping you from embracing the unknown.
“You are continuously keeping your life the same because you are keeping your attention (thoughts) and your energy (feelings) the same.” Dr. Joe Dispenza
You can take steps away from being the victim of life by becoming aware of your thoughts and feelings.
How much room do you make in your life for the unpredictable, the unknown?
Have you had the urge to journal and meditate? Maybe this is the first bit of intuition you should listen to. These two practices are the best ways to become aware of the thoughts and feelings actually guiding your life.
If you want to create lasting change in your life, it is important to understand the three w’s: what, where and why. Next to hiring a life coach, a daily journal habit is the best tool to help you get clear on what you want, where you currently are, and why you want the ideal life you envision. Last month I shared my four favorite journal prompts to help you past any resistance. Choosing one of these prompts will help you discover what keeps you victimized to a thinking/feeling loop.
The best way to turn off the noise of the world is meditation. Slowing down to breath and listen is key.
Start with five minutes of breathing and quiet. Notice when your mind wanders and gently bring it back to the present moment. Don’t judge your inability to sit still. This is totally natural. Slowing down your mind is not only good for your creative juices, but aides in wellness. The more you allow yourself to be still, the easier it gets to rest.
There are so many resources for meditation practices. I use the Insight Timer app to explore different meditation techniques. YouTube offers numerous videos. Sometimes I listen to Pandora’s 528 Hz Miracle Radio for soft background music.
Explore your wisdom
It’s important to protect your ability to listen to your own wisdom. I urge you to turn off your tv. At least limit your exposure to the fear based programing.
It is possible that during these chaotic times you have become addicted to information, which keeps you paralyzed. I confess that at times I have been glued to the information highway, but can tell a huge difference in my life when I listen to my own wisdom.
I realized a shift the other day when I was journaling. I’ve noticed that in the past I looked for a something to deliver my dreams to me, to take care of me. At some point during 2020 I turned inward for the answers. I learned to take responsibility for my own thoughts and feelings. This can be lonely work, but totally freeing.
I believe God created you with an amazing mind. You and I only use a fraction of the mind’s power. God blessed you with unique gifts and talents as well.
Your voice, or intuition, is worth exploring. Can you trust your ability to hear your own voice, your answers within? What is possible in your life is within the unknown!
