I used to feel like I didn’t have an intuition. Or at least, I wasn’t able to tap into it like other people somehow were.
I used to struggle with decisions and wonder why I couldn’t access that part of me that knew what she was supposed to do. I was desperate to experience that deep-seated knowing of what I was put on this earth for. I wanted that unspoken understanding within myself, like comrades nodding imperceptibly as they pass each other, aware of their common purpose.
I longed for something, I just didn’t know what. I felt disconnected from myself, and a little lost. I was living most of my life in an endless internal conversation of shoulds and have tos, unable to access the bigger picture.
And then I decided that the conversation needed to change. I decided to stop making statements, and instead ask more questions. It was an adjustment at first. Statements don’t require much thought…they’re habitual; unconscious. Questions force you to pause because they require stillness (especially if you want to hear the answers.)
It didn’t happen overnight, but the questions I started asking allowed me to take time to myself and make stillness a priority, which in turn allowed the space to open up for that knowing…my intuition to trickle back in.
Your intuition is like a muscle; it needs exercise to perform at its optimum level, and the more you use it, the stronger it will become.
So, I commit to the practice of using my intuition, and letting it guide me…and asking more questions.
P. S. If you’re feeling stuck and aren’t sure what the next steps are or how to take them, I’d love to be able to help you map out a plan and support you.
You don’t need to have everything figured out in order to have this conversation. You just need to be willing to explore your next steps.
