Dear Intuitive Seeker –

What you say to yourself when you talk to yourself has a huge impact on what happens in your life. You create what you focus on through the power of your thoughts, the images you hold in your mind, and emotions. When you begin to choose your thoughts in a more conscious fashion, you can begin to shape your destiny. I love what Law-of-Attraction author Esther Hicks says about this: “Find something that makes you happy and fixate on it. That is the answer to all things. It’s the answer to getting everything that you want.”

How is your intuition tied into this? When you are consistently holding negative or pessimistic thoughts, you’ll feel bad. This is one of the ways your intuition has of signaling you that you're on the wrong track. It's as if your bad mood or irritability is your intuition’s early warning system letting you know you’re about to create something less than positive in your life. It's cautioning you to redirect your thinking.

Pay Attention to the Focus of Your Thoughts

Try this experiment: Think of something that you really want. Got it? Now spend about thirty seconds saying to yourself, "I'll never get it. I'm not good enough. I'm not lucky. It will never happen." You get the idea. Now, how do you feel? I imagine that you felt awful, right? Great! That’s your intuition giving you a message to change your thinking!

Try this experiment again. This time bring to mind what you want to create in your life and then spend thirty seconds saying the following: "I'm so excited about having (this thing). I know I'm on the right track. I have what it takes to succeed at this. It's only a matter of time until it happens." I'll bet you feel more positive. Again, this is a message from your intuition. This time your good feelings are an indication that you're on the right track and sending out the right vibration or energy to attract what you desire.

Accentuate the Positive

Your intuition is your ally in creating a life you love. It is your Inner GPS (navigation system) indicating the right direction for success. It’s always running in the background suggesting you step into your greatness, your purpose and passion. Pay attention to your thoughts and feelings. If you catch yourself feeling down, depressed or just plain pessimistic, see if you can track your thoughts back to what you were just thinking about or telling yourself.

Be vigilant about turning your negative thoughts to something positive. Notice when you get feedback from your intuition that the thoughts you're thinking are not attracting what you desire and immediately ask yourself two questions.

What do I want in this transition?

Is there a more positive way of thinking about it?

Continue to choose thoughts that make you feel better. This doesn't mean lying to yourself. Be compassionate with yourself as you learn this new skill. It takes practice to be a conscious creator of your world!

Small Steps to Success

A slightly different question to ask yourself is, "What would be the most perfect outcome to this situation?"

Write a paragraph or so about what you want. Don't try to figure out how you're going to get it. That’s for your intuition to work out.

Close your eyes. Briefly bring to mind the situation that's causing your concern.

Now bring to mind the outcome that you want. Spend a few moments visualizing this perfect outcome. What feeling would you be experiencing if you got what you want? As you visualize this image, feel those emotions. Add some words to your imagery. Use whatever works for you. "This is great." "I feel terrific!" Imagine your friends and family celebrating with you. Do whatever you can to make this image real and vivid.

Ask your intuition, "What could I do right now?" Await a response. Open your eyes when you feel ready. Jot down any ideas, thoughts and impressions you may have had.

Don't take action simply on what you think makes sense. Act only on impulses that feel like fun, make you excited, or seem enjoyable to you. Your intuition will begin to bring together the circumstances and synchronicities to create your goal.

We’re all born with the gift of intuition. It’s an inner compass that resides within each of us. Listen to it and honor it. It will always lead you in the direction of success.
