Dear Intuitive Friend –
In my conversations with clients recently, I’m noticing a trend. People are telling me they feel lost or stuck. Obviously, things have changed a LOT in the world in the last few years – pandemic, political division and the economy, to name just a few.
We’re finding that the old ways of doing things and getting back on our feet are no longer working. I believe that intuition can play a big role in guiding us to our next steps. Here’s a basic technique that might help you find a new direction...
Sit Quietly and Close Your Eyes
Allow your mind to drift back to a time in your past where you had a burning desire or dream you wanted to fulfill. Perhaps it was to have a family, to own your own home, to have a certain type of career or to obtain a college degree.
Spend a few minutes communing with this younger you. What were your hopes, dreams, and ambitions five, ten, fifteen, twenty years ago? How did you know what you wanted to achieve? How did it feel? What did it look like? How did you experience it in your body? These are all ways your intuition communicates your true passions and purpose.
Allow Your Thoughts to Move Forward in Time
What became of those hopes and dreams? Did you allow some of them to fall away through discouragement? Did a few of them come true? Perhaps some of your dreams changed along the way as you grew and matured.
Most of our goals do not materialize overnight. They take months, years and sometimes decades to mature and manifest. Look at one of the dreams that you have achieved and look at the process you've gone through to succeed. What have you learned? What are you proud of? What do you wish you had done differently?
Take a slow, deep breath and exhale. Ask your wise inner self, "What new dreams should I pursue?" Wait, listen and reflect on the answer you receive. Then ask, "I want to allow this dream to unfold with joy, ease and peace -- how may I begin?" “What steps can I take today?”
Intuition arrives in many different ways. You may not even get an answer right away! But, be on the lookout for an inner knowing, a nudge to do something, a physical sensation, a dream. Also, be aware of coincidences and synchronicities that may be giving you guidance. The Universe wants you to succeed. It guides you through joy and awareness.
