If you're in a situation where you're not sure what to do, or whether a decision is right for you, you need to use your intuition. It's one of the most important tools you can learn to use.
The good news: we all have intuition.
The problem: is that most of us don't trust it.
If you want to live a better and more fulfilling life you intuition is the key.
Intuition is your inner voice, the knowing that comes from within. It's the feeling or knowing that something is right or true. Intuition can come as a thought, an idea or even a physical sensation.
Trust yourself and follow your intuition. Listen to it, even if it doesn't make sense at first. The more you trust yourself and your abilities, the more confident you'll become.
Here are some steps you can do right now to start trusting your intuition:
Notice Resistance - when you feel resistance, trust it. If you begin to waver in the decision-making process, don’t do it. This is your body awareness.
Close your eyes and ask yourself a yes or no question. Notice any visions you receive in your mind’s eye or immediate gut knowing.
The Light or Heavy Test - Notice if something feels light or heavy in your body. Feel the energy because your body is communicating with you.
Fear vs. Intuition - Intuition points us in a direction that makes us feel comfortable, even if not certain. Fear, on the contrary, dictates a decision that makes us feel relieved, as though we just survived a threat to our very existence.
If there's one thing that gets in the way of trusting our intuition, it's self-doubt. We tend to second guess ourselves, listen to other people's opinions and start playing out all the possible outcomes in our head before we make any kind of decision. That takes time and energy away from what we actually need to focus on — listening carefully to our inner voice so we can find clarity and direction.
If you're having trouble trusting yourself or your intuition, try this exercise: Close your eyes and take five deep breaths while thinking about something that causes you some anxiety or stress (it could be anything from making a big purchase to ending a relationship). Now open your eyes and write down all the thoughts that went through your head during those five breaths (don't worry about spelling or grammar — just get them.)
