I was out to dinner with a dear friend of mine, when she asked me the question I get frequently which is "how do I know when to trust my intuition?". My response of course is normally always! But the message that came to mind was perfect for her and perhaps most of you. The message was to assume your intuition is always right, unless proven otherwise, rather than the other way around. Most people work on in favor of the logical brain. The one that figures things out, thinks through things, makes "logical" decisions. What we forget is that even our logical brain is being driven by our intuition. Things that are seemingly chance, line up, and we impulsively think through the choices of the given situation without research or asking someone else for those choices. This is all intuition.
However, we stifle this gift of intuition sometimes by taking the logical brain too far. Letting it run things. We let it win over on what started the whole thing to begin with. We choose the side of the logical brain vs. the intuitive side. The second part of the message was let your intuition win every time for a bit and see how it goes. Rather than siding with the logical side, try siding with that gut impulse.
Insightful Inspiration for the week
This week, try and side try assuming your intuition is always right. When you find yourself asking "is this my intuition or just wishful thinking?" side with the answer intuition (unless all evidence points to something contrary). Try siding with your intuition, trusting it, loving it and using it the way it is intended... without the control of the logical side. The logical brain is a gift too, but it isn't meant to snuff out the intuitive side. They are meant to work in concert, shifting back and forth to bring you where you want to be.
As always, I encourage you to share with me on Facebook about how this is going. Have an intuitive week.
