It seems like the world is getting a little crazier. There are natural disasters from earthquakes to volcano eruptions, angry political rallying and celebrity affairs that get weirder with every news report.
Trust your Intuition
One of the ways to start feeling safer is to stop putting all our faith in the experts, government, laws, and anyone or anything out there that is promising us security. Instead, let’s start trusting our gut instincts. You know, that silent voice or knowing inside that can quell our fears, pull us out of any jam in an instant, and solve any situation without hurting any one. I call it my intuition.
How do we do that?
Easy for you, you might say. But how do we listen to our intuition?
Here are Five Easy Steps:
1 Have a Willingness-
The most important requirement in listening to our intuition is the willingness to hear the answer.
2 Get to Neutral-
If we get our past experiences, our judgments, and what we think is right and wrong out of our way, we can observe and pay attention to our intuition.
3 Ask the Question-
We will not hear our intuitive answers until we ask. And if we ask, we will receive.
4 Acknowledge the Answer-
There are lots of ways to get answers. Visions, in our dreams or as a feeling in the pit of our stomach, just to name a few.
5 Accept the Answer that is Given and Follow it-
This is the step we usually don’t do. Have you ever found yourself saying, “I knew it, I just didn’t do it.” It’s important to honor our intuition and not judge it.
Shutting out our own internal chatter and the barrage of crazy chatter in the world to hear out intuition can take practice. Begin simply by asking questions and seeing what you hear, feel or see. Later, check back with yourself to see if the advice you were given turned out to be true and beneficial. Soon enough, you’ll distinguish your inner knowing voice from the rest.
