“The intuitive mind is a scared gift, the rational mind it’s faithful servant” – Albert Einstein.
Yesterday I had the privilege of being interviewed by my new friend Connie Chapman of Awaken Radio on one of my all time favourite topics: Inner Guidance (I've embedded the free Inner Guidance podcast for your ears below).
I wholeheartedly believe that everyone is intuitive but just like any muscle in your body, the more you listen to your intuition and act on it, the stronger it will get (and the easier trusting it will become).
We all have within us an inner guidance system that is way more wiser than our mind could ever be. Your inner guru, a gut feel, your heart's yearning, that little voice inside you, a niggling feeling, 'I can feel it in my waters', your spirit, your soul, the wise woman within… WHATEVER you call it, it always knows best.
But don’t take my word for it, here’s what my mate Albert has to say on the topic:
A burning in your belly, a niggling, a feeling of just knowing. Everyone on the planet receives intuitive guidance. Acting on it is what makes all the difference. Acting on it takes courage and trust because intuition doesn’t always make logical sense. I often say: If it doesn’t make sense, you know it’s intuition. Which can be scary but it's better than receiving the guidance, not acting on it and then days, weeks, months later kicking yourself saying "I KNEW that Dagnamit!"
When I first started studying intuition I was petrified about giving intuitive readings for real. The more I breathed into this fear and trusted what was coming, the more the intuition came. I learned to get out of the way and, as Albert says, let my rational mind serve the intuitive mind/gift.
But it didn't happen overnight and it's a continual process. Like anything new it starts with baby steps (acting on one thing after another) and before you know it you're leaping. Now, my favourite thing to do in the world is give intuitive guidance sessions. I still get a little scared before each session but that's when I tell my rational mind to shut up and serve lol.
Enjoy the podcast and may you find the courage to go within and follow your inner guidance today. It will never fail you.
