We all have a super power that is waiting inside us to help in any situation…it’s our INTUITION.
Our intuition connects our body, mind, spirit and emotions.
It is the thing that takes all the elements of our being and creates connections to guide us.
That is why when we are doing something we know is on our true path, we feel happy, full of energy, sometimes a little nervous but overall excited. When we are doing something that is not aligned with our intuition, we feel lethargic, sad, irritable, or angry.
Our intuition communicates with us through our emotions and the feeling in our gut!
A big part of learning how to connect with your intuition is learning to trust your “gut feeling”.
The gut is considered the second brain of the body. It actually has its own nervous system called the enteric nervous system. It has millions of nerve endings and holds 95% of our feel good hormone, serotonin.
Because of this, our gut connects our entire body.
There is a direct link between our thinking brain and gut brain. This is the reason why we feel stress and emotions in our gut.
You know those butterflies you get before you do something out of your comfort zone, or the pit in your stomach when you are doing something you really don’t want to do. These are all ways our intuition is tying to get our attention.
Our intuition is shaped by all of our past experiences. It is the most knowledgeable part of us. Therefore, your advice to yourself is the best advice you can get. You do not need to look outside of yourself for answers…your intuition knows the best answer for YOU.
Tension, anxiety and stress are created when we don’t listen to our inner guide.
Overtime, this causes symptoms in the physical body like pain, digestive issues, sleep disturbances, headaches, frequent illness, decreased energy, and changes in libido.
We are not meant to live in a constant state of stress.
Connecting with your Intuition
It is vital to build a relationship with this SUPER POWER. Practice listening to your intuition and take action according to what it is showing you. A great way to do this is by slowing down and taking time for yourself.
You can do guided meditations or just sit and notice what is happening in your body and mind. This can be a simple 10 minutes in the morning or before bed.
To notice is to listen. So notice your inner world.
What is it that your mind or spirit is struggling with?
Let your body guide you to the answer you need to feel at ease.
