I have always been very intuitive. Ever since I was a little girl I sensed certain things, knew certain things and had a peace around why I should do certain things in my life. As I grew older I realized that “feeling” I always had was my intuition or guiding compass. I didn’t realize how lucky I was to trust this part of myself, knowing it would never steer me in the wrong direction. I assumed everyone had the same feelings. Not until I started working with people as a Coach, did I realize people’s genuine desire to tap into their own intuition. They had a hard time differentiating between intuition and fear. Many times we get gut feelings and we aren’t sure what the source is. Is it truly our intuition or is it fear based. Even though I am very tapped in to my intuition, there are times I second guess something. There are several things you can do to harness your intuition and decipher between what is real and what is not. I guarantee that taking some time to increase your ability to tap into your intuition will benefit your life in so many ways. You will be more at peace. You will make smarter choices. You will stress less. You will realize you aren’t alone. Here are some things to work on this week:
Try on your decision
When I mean “try on” your decision, I mean think of a decision you need to make in your life, close your eyes, and see how you feel physically. Let’s say you are debating taking a new job. Envision yourself in the new position. How do you feel? Do you feel excited and energized? Or do you feel stressed and overwhelmed? Just the act of starting to align your gut feelings to your physical self will help harness the power.
Keep a journal
The best way to start fine tuning your intuition is to keep an intuition journal. Every time you get a gut feeling about something, jot it down. Later jot down if it came true or if it was accurate. This is a great tool to start looking for patterns or be more aware of your gut feelings when you have them. Practice really does make perfect.
Place of love
Remember that your intuition always comes from a place of love. If the voice in your head is kind and loving, it is probably your intuition. If it is critical or judgmental it is probably just your ego or fear based talk. Try to tap in to this voice and feeling this week.
