It’s something each one of us has, but many of us never use it.
It is our internal compass that never lets us down and it is always guiding us to our next chapter of life lessons.
It’s our own internal “I told ya so” mechanism when we don’t listen to it.
So why don’t we listen to it?
The simple answer is our environment and how we were raised in our society.
Somewhere along the way of time, it was frowned upon to “follow your heart” or to “trust your gut.” It became idealistic (and unrealistic) to follow your heart when you have people that are relying on you and bills to pay.
It became considered reckless to follow your gut and make decisions based on only your intuition without proof to back it up.
Our trust in our own natural instinctive ability has slowly been eroded away from us by the opinions of others and lack of facts.
There is good news though. We still have that instinct tucked away within our body’s wisdom. It’s still there!
You probably still feel it, but are so used to ignoring it that you are unsure of what it is.
That brings us to this moment.
I have a few serious questions for you. Questions that I also had to ask myself not too long ago.
If you could trust your intuition fully without question, where would it take you?
Who would you be?
And how would it change your life?
The answers to these questions changed my life.
When I asked myself these questions, these are the answers I got:
1. If you could trust your intuition fully, without question, where would it take you?
My initial answer to this question was broad. “Everywhere I wanna go!”
While it was a pretty good answer (because who doesn’t want to go everywhere in life?), it felt like it was only a piece of the answer.
Where is everywhere? Where do I even want to go? And does it mean literally go somewhere, or am I going somewhere in my life?
Great more questions.
I wanted to get to the bottom of this question, so I asked my intuition directly what it had for me.
I mean, why not try to see if I get something back from myself? It’s instinctual, so it should be within me if I just listen, right?
Crickets…more crickets…birds chirping…then a soft voice in my head.
It was more of an epiphany than a voice that brought this answer to me.
Do you know what it told me? It told me that it would take me to a life of ease. It would remove the pressure and stress of decision making, reveal opportunities that are right in front of me, and create self-love, and trust in myself and my decisions. Whoa.
It will take me to me and my true authentic self and my purpose.
2. If you could trust your intuition fully, without question, who would you be?
There’s something about these questions that makes me feel like I could do anything.
My initial answer is, “I would be The President Of The United States.”
My next thought is, “No the fuck I wouldn’t!”
This answer is likely from the wiring of my brain—always being told by adults that I could be anything I wanted to be when I grew up. Even the President of the United States.
I’m not knocking the job. It’s a huge job, and as we are becoming even more clearly aware of, we can see how important it is to have the right person in that seat, but I am too sensitive and get too anxious to be responsible for a nation. So that would definitely not be my purpose.
Okay, so back to the question. Who would I be if I could fully trust my intuition?
I’d be a badass. I would be more confident. I would love myself unconditionally. I would be a great leader (not a presidential kind of leader) but a leader in something I care about and am passionate about.
I would inspire others around me to love themselves unconditionally. I would see things differently but in a good way. I would notice the beauty in things around me and find the kindness in the saddest and most angry of people.
Just by being me, I would make a difference, even the smallest difference, in the people and the world around me.
3. If you could trust your intuition fully, without question, how would it change your life?
As I answer each of these questions, I am realizing how once I am “tapped in” and connected to my intuition (and Higher Self) how easily these answers seem to “flow” through me.
My life would change because it would become my own.
I would not be following what others tell me to do just because “it’s what you do.” I would let go of outer judgements from friends, family, and coworkers for what they think I should be doing. I would become more resilient and less fearful of my fears, because I am capable of trusting my decisions. And because I have 1000 percent faith that these decisions will take me to where I am meant to go, as long as I am listening to my inner wisdom.
I am now okay with failure. In fact, I no longer see failures or mistakes as bad things that happen to me, but rather good things that happen for me.
My life is happier, clearer, on purpose, and in flow. Money is no longer a burden because I see abundance, not lack. And, I always have everything I need, and I always work to get what I want.
My life is now on my terms.
This interview was the beginning of the next chapter in my life and the beginning of many other lives of the people that I am honored to call my clients.
It’s easy to know when something is missing in our lives; it’s not as easy to figure out what it is.
That’s why this interview is the first thing I do with all of my clients. It connects them to their true authentic self.
For many, it’s the first time in years. For others, it’s a reminder of who they are, and for some, it’s the first time they have heard their own voice.
These interviews have led my clients and me to realize our dreams and start creating the goals to manifest them into reality. We are living happier, healthier, and more fulfilled lives by living in our truths.
We all have a truth and a purpose for being on this planet. It is not an accident that you are here.
Part of our journey is to find our own unique imprint on this life.
You can go through the motions of life, or you can create your own motions.
It’s up to you.
