“Follow Your Heart”
“Trust Your Intuition”
“… most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” – Steve Jobs
Such great thoughts, right?
Intuition is my word of the year, so I am fascinated by the concept of inner guidance.
The greatest thing I’ve learned thus far is that we are all actually really intuitive creatures, but we block our intuition because of one thing.
Want to know what it is?
Here’s the fascinating thing…Every once in a while our brains will provide ideas.
They will offer suggestions, maybe in the shower, or in a space when you are in rest or receptivity.
However, many people aren’t tuning into these sensations because they are busying their lives with extra (overwork, overeating, overdrinking, overscheduling) things that fill our brains and bodies so our vibrations become weak.
Ever notice how when you are ravenous you can sense your feelings a lot stronger than you can after Thanksgiving dinner?
When we are in a place of openness, our brains can create (an invention, wealth, good health, relationships, family, vacation, fill in the blank), and guide us to desires we truly want.
But if we haven’t experienced this desire before, our brains become afraid and shut it down.
So how do we get over this?
- Create space. This can be in mediation, yoga, journal writing, a walk outdoors, or silence in your car. Pause and ask yourself what you really want.
- Practice listening. The way we get good at anything is through practice. It doesn’t matter if it’s playing the piano, learning to make a perfect souffle or manifesting your dream future, you have to practice.
- Start small to build trust. Building trust with ourselves takes time. So start with a low-hanging fruit, little things that only matter to you, and then gradually work your way up to bigger items.
I started doing this and realized that my intuition guides me on fun, creative journeys on everything from exploring new foods to getting bangs at my most recent haircut.
While it can seem daunting to take on something new; something that feels like fear.
Just remember, fear is only a feeling
It is just a vibration– it’s like a wave, it comes on strong, but it also falls, and dissolves.
Awakening your inner wisdom allows for life experiences in fascinating new ways, so I encourage you to take a bold step: create space, practice listening, and start building trust with yourself.
I promise, your intuitive wisdom is waiting to show you something amazing.
