One of the most well known scientists in the world knew that intuition was of great importance, yet society totes it as something not to trust, because it is not based on fact. This is a dis-service to us all; to ourselves, to our relationships, our communities, and to our world.
We are taught to live our lives from the neck up—especially for men—cutting us off from acknowledging our feelings, our gut instincts, and our mind/body/spirit connection.
Because of this, we struggle, we push feelings into the body and have physical ailments that we don’t understand, we ignore what intuition and our bodies are telling us because maybe it’s not what we want to hear. Or we don’t trust that part of ourselves because it’s not logical or what we are “suppose” to do.
Prior to using my intuition, I lived from my head, making decisions based on what I told myself I should do or what I believed others/society said I should do. I stressed, I struggled, I went against my gut, I felt overwhelmed, and didn’t know why. Even little things like the “to do” list created stress because I told myself it had to be done today.
As I’ve practiced using my intuition through connecting with my body and spirit, life has been increasingly more peaceful and I create what I am feeling guided to do vs. what I think I should do.
Before starting this business, I had a feeling, a sense that my work was going to be my spiritual path, but I didn’t know how. As I learned to trust myself and life itself, I could hear intuitive prompts like “buy a notepad and drawing paper” (which I ended up using to write ideas down and create drawings that I now use in workshops), or “take a writing workshop” (which I am now doing to promote the business).
In my daily life, I use intuition to know which tasks on the “to do” list to complete – I do what feels like what is most important, and trust that the rest will get done when it is time.
We can use it all the time, from daily choices of what to buy, colors to paint the walls, or events to attend, to bigger decisions like leaving or taking job, relationships, or moving.
Intuition is our infinite wisdom, it knows what is true for us without the mind getting involved, and helps us find our life’s purpose and create our dreams.
By using it, we create freedom to trust ourselves and in life that life will present and provide for us what it is we need in that moment.
Intuition is like a muscle to be exercised. The more we practice listening, the more we can hear it. So how do we access our intuition? Try these steps:
- Sit quietly for 5 minutes a day. This time can be used to focus on your breath, read something inspirational, listen to nature, or say a prayer. Use the time to connect within.
- Pay attention to what catches your eye or ear. This can lead you to something inside that is calling for your attention.
- Listen to your body. Your body always knows and is the messenger. Tightness in the chest or stomach indicates something “isn’t right,” where lightness of being is a “yes.”
- Listen for prompts or hits: These are moments between the chatter of the mind, where something out of the ordinary enters.
- Trust yourself and in life: you always know, you always have the answer (maybe not in the time frame you want!), but by trusting and letting go we access the truth>
