“You must train your intuition – you must trust the small voice inside you which tells you exactly what to say, what to decide.”
~ Ingrid Bergman
Part I of IV~ the wisdom of the body
Intuition is the “truth” that is “known” whether we have words or evidence to prove it. It is our “gut feeling” or the action we took without consciously knowing why. It’s that message we get with no explanation. Like when someone we love tells us something that is complete bull, and we feel it somewhere in our body.
How many times have we tried to override what our body is telling us with a story that our false ego creates?
• We doubt or second guess ourselves (which is a form of self-abuse)
• We take someone else’s word or opinion as a higher authority
• We deny our feelings and try to “think” our way through a decision
Faithfully following our intuition is valuable because it keeps us in the flow. Our bodies, careers, and relationships all benefit from the ability to tune in and stop swimming upstream. This doesn’t mean that our intuition always tells us what we want to hear.
I was working with a client who was sure that something was wrong in her body. The doctors had told her it was nothing, but she persisted. It turned out that she had advanced breast cancer, and had she not trusted her intuition and pressed for more tests, she would not be alive today.
Our intuition can guide us into eating the healthiest foods, what to say, and which path to take.
Years ago I was opening another gymnastic school, I had asked my dad to check out a possible location. I told him that I don’t know why, but I saw this place and it just felt right. Then, he told me that’s how he does it. What?! I thought my dad had some mathematical, practical formula for his success…Nope, it all starts with intuition.
The more we become aware, the more we realize that our intuition is available to us ALL of the time. It’s like a really cool, way smarter friend who is always on your side.
The invitation is to take the time to quiet your thoughts, listen to your intuition… and cultivate your radiance.
