So, what is intuition?
Intuition connects us to who we truly are more than anything else. Intuition is a range of experiences including the five senses and even our sixth sense. The obvious one is the sense of feeling; intuition can be a deep and all-knowing feeling in your gut that something is wrong. You may not know exactly why, but you know to listen and to trust that feeling of danger.
Conversely, intuition also can be a warm, glowing feeling in your heart, and a sense of knowing that everything is going to be okay. Intuition includes heightened touch, sight, smell, taste and feeling. Shaking someone’s hand when you meet them for the first time you may get a feeling about whether or not you can trust this person.
How can intuition help us make better personal decisions
Removing your blocks
Removing your blocks requires you going where you have not been before. The unknown is where all your gifts and treasures lie. When you are having a tough moment or a tough day what do you do then? Almost all of us are blocked in some way most of the time. It is not about seeing being blocked as a problem but as an opportunity. If your mind is stressed, why is that? Are you working too hard or just overthinking?
The more you can be in the moment accepting what is and what is not, the more you can do something about it. Life is not about what happens to you but how you react to it. Slow down, take your time and move past it.
Holding our opinions and judgments by truly listening to our spirit, our body and other people is a very wise skill. Ego tends to come up when we are feeling vulnerable, insecure and not good enough. As you catch your ego earlier you will find yourself becoming less opinionated and judgmental about others and of yourself. Now you are less reactive and more present in making all your decisions.
Use your intuition to make small decisions at first. That way, you have nothing to lose and only something to gain. Intuition is a journey of improvement, not perfection. Take it one step at a time. Decide whether you are going to have a cup of coffee, or does it feel better to have green tea? Is it is better to call your friend today or next week? Have fun with it. Before you know it, you will be using your intuition more to make really important decisions.
Making better decisions and keeping them
Each and every day we are constantly making innumerable decisions, consciously and unconsciously. Becoming more conscious of ourselves and our decisions, we have the opportunity to make better decisions that are aligned with our heart and spirit. Having access to loving and making heart-based intuitive decisions is a game changer.
It is hard to make a wrong decision when you are coming from a loving place. For example, how long should you spend helping your child with his homework tonight? Trust yourself. That way you are doing not only what is best for your child but also best for yourself.
Living in truth
Living by our values we can make more unattached decisions. If your partner asks you to go to a party and you really feel you don’t want to go, it may be best to trust your intuition and say no. You could go and make your partner happy, or you can honour your intuition. You end up not going to the party and finding out that the party rained out and was a disaster for everyone.
It’s time to stop second guessing yourself. Back your intuition and be able to sleep with a clearer mind and heart at night.
