What is it that has a person trust the advice or counsel offered in a self-help book but discounts their own contribution to their own lives? At what point does a person start believing that someone else has more insight about their lives than they do? It could be that it’s due to a person’s level of confidence in their ability to problem-solve. How is this confidence acquired? Perhaps it’s through practice, or exercise if you prefer. Each person is gifted with their own intuition. Trusting this intuition, however, is an entirely different matter. Trusting in intuition is learned. It is developed through repeated instances of success.
What does your heart tell you when it speaks to you? What about your intuition? Do you actually listen to it? Thoughts, feelings, health clues, etc. are ignored daily; often to the detriment of the person being oblivious, or simply unsure of which course to take. It’s time to tune out the extraneous interference and concentrate on the inner melody.
So how does one let their intuition guide them to success? First and foremost, by “tuning in.” With so much going on each day, the typical person barely has time to breathe, let alone sit down to unwind and think. That needs to change. It’s impossible to get in touch with your feelings if you’re clueless about what they are. Tuning in can be done a number of ways: through guiding meditation or relaxation techniques, yoga, a long bubble bath, or a turn in the steam room. Whatever you choose, or wherever you are so long as it helps you relax can get you tuned into what you are feeling.
Second, it helps immensely to record your thoughts and feelings in a journal. Especially when you are working on something big that requires multiple sessions. In addition, a journal allows you to keep track of the things you want to accomplish and lets you glimpse your thoughts in that exact moment, so that you can see how everything unfolds. A journal is your way of recording life scene by scene. It helps to write things out when you need to see how they fit together, and make sure that what you thought at 3:00 am was really as good as what you thought at 9:00 am. The plus side is that you are sure to remember what you were thinking.
Lastly, your plan to trust your intuition needs to be put into play. A well thought out plan is simply a well thought out plan unless it is put into motion. If you have a history of not trusting your instincts, why not start small. Try selecting what you “feel” is a good restaurant, a good book, etc. in order to build your confidence level. Follow it up with increasingly bigger events. Each success will bring you closer to comfortably following your instincts, and soon it will become second nature.
Truly tuning in and listening to yourself is required to attract those things of a positive and successful nature into your life. If you are sending out mixed messages to the universe of what you want rather than commanding those vibes, on purpose, into the universe, it is impossible to attract what you want. Have fun practicing becoming in tune with your inner thoughts, actions and your feelings. Enjoy the process! The results will be well worth the effort when you let your intuition be your guide.
