Sometimes it is hard to do what you know is right for you when everyone else is telling you that it is wrong. Looking back, there have been a few situations in my life where I should have listened to my intuition. If I had listened to what my heart and my intuition were telling me, I would have avoided a lot of heartache, mistakes, and most importantly, time lost, since it cannot be replaced or bought. I guess it is part of this life journey of learning and growing that we all go through. Now, as an adult, I am wiser and more grounded. I stand on my own two feet with confidence and clarity. I shall never doubt my intuition again.
As I blogged about earlier this year, in 2014 I will trust my intuition in all that I do. Soon you will know what I am talking about. One of my employees, Ryann Doyle, shared with me an article recently featured in the Huffington Post called “10 Things Highly Intuitive People Do Differently” and she thought it reminded her of me. What I like about the list in the article is that it shows the science behind intuitive feelings…and why they are important in our lives.
Although I do practice all of them, the one I know I must do weekly to keep me healthy and grounded is “taking time for solitude.” As much as I love being around people, I am really an introvert deep down inside. It only took me 42 years to figure this out. 🙂 It is when I am alone in a calm, quiet, clutter-free, and harmonious space that I create beautiful things (art, jewelry, accessories, clothing, photography, writings, flower arrangements, etc…).
So at this moment in my life, no matter how busy my week is, I always make sure that I have a quiet night alone during the week and then at least 3-4 hours on a Sunday to reconnect with my inner creativity and recharge my divine battery.
I hope you like this article as much as Ryann and I do. Even Arianna Huffington, the Editor-in-Chief of the Huffington Post and a wildly successful businesswoman, talks about intuition in her upcoming book Thrive: “Feeding and nurturing our intuition, and living a life in which we can make use of its wisdom, is one key way to thrive, at work and in life.” Are you ready to listen to your inner voice? Let me know if I can help in any way and share your experiences with me as you get in touch with your intuition.
I trust my intuition A LOT. That gut feeling you get when making a major life decision is the best thing ever – it will either protect you from something or point you in the right direction.
Thanks for sharing! I think you are so right about that.
