How to trust your intuition

    "Somewhere in there, among the worries, questions, advice and advertising jingles, lives your intuition, your true 'inner voice.' You can hear it to the extent that you give it your attention."  
~ Martha Beck, Finding Your Own North Star

     We are all intuitive. You are receiving intuitive insights all the time. But it can be difficult to recognize the difference between random thoughts and intuition. Intuition is:
  • Wise: Even when your insights suggest you do something that is difficult, it will have the quality of wisdom.
  • Loving: Intuition never criticizes or judges, but is supportive and compassionate. 
  • Consistent: Intuitive insights are consistently helpful and reliable.
  • Empowering: Intuitive insights help you believe in yourself.

     The problem is, when we get an intuitive insight, idea or vision, usually self-doubt quickly comes in and tears it apart. Before you know it, you've come up with a list of reasons why you shouldn't act on it or trust it, and you've dismissed the insight. The way intuition works, you will probably get that insight again when you are in a more receptive state. But there is another way to circumvent the self-doubt issue:
  • Keep a log of your intuitive insights, ideas and visions. The minute you get one, quickly record it in a file on your PC, the notes section of your phone or in your journal. You can even utilize the voice recognition ability of your phone, if it has it, to get it recorded before its gone.
  • Review this log once a month.  This way even if you dismissed an insight initially, you can come back around to it.
  •  Sometimes during this monthly review you will reconnect with the initial insight and be ready to take action on it.  But if its part of a long-term goal of yours, it could be a piece of a bigger puzzle. You may not have the full picture for a year or longer. 

It's All About Resonance

     Sometimes intuitive insights come in the form of a realization that a person, place, project or organization no longer resonates with you. You may no longer feel in sync with it and your intuition may be telling you its time to let go. When we trust the timing and move on, we make space for the next step in our life's journey to come in.  But it can be difficult to let go, especially if others won't approve of your decision and you may feel guilty.

     Here is an EFT video I made to help you process the guilt for doubting yourself and the guilt for acting on your intuition when it involves ending a relationship, job or endeavor.
