Have you ever been frozen by indecision and inaction and longed to find your way to clarity and certainty? Have you been frustrated by the myriad choices before you and yearned to soar beyond the self-doubt?
You are not alone. The world is increasing in complexity and navigating the constant change is challenging. But . . . what if you could access (in an instant) your intuitive nature? What if you could articulate the just in time insights required to manage the creative chaos known as everyday existence on Mother Earth?
Your innate knowing is readily available, and eager, to come to your aid. It’s an essential element of the fabric of your being. There’s really nothing for you to do. This super power, that resides within every cell of your being, lies dormant (like Sleeping Beauty waiting for her Prince’s kiss). Be the Prince, darling! It’s time for that awakening kiss!
Here are 3 simple steps to awaken the beautiful voice that lives within you:
Relax. Most people hold a tremendous amount of tension in their body. When you walk around contracted there’s very little information that can get thru. Your inner guidance system is an open and flowing state. You can’t access it from a compromised system. My favorite way to get in touch with how much tension you hold in your body is to try the Savasana Pose (Dead Man’s Pose) from Yoga. Lie on a mat on the floor and take several deep breaths allowing every breath to sink your body into the floor. Imagine that you are the roots of a tree sinking into the dark, rich and luscious Mother Earth. Feel nourished and sustained by Gaia, she is the mother of your earthly body and you are comprised of her. Sink into the sensation of being held and let every drop of tension be released into her loving arms. Feel the rhythm of Life re-calibrating and re-energizing your being.
Listen. This sounds inordinately simple (and it is). You just have to hang in long enough to hear the true voice beneath all the other voices. There is SO much noise. The moment you start listening, you realize how much is really going on. It’s like an all night party where the guests won’t go home. Hold to your course and gently bid these visitors a good night. It often helps to close your eyes and notice your breath. This is a traditional practice that yields results. I also urge you to listen with eyes open, as you go about your day and even while you are in conversation with other people. Notice if you’re paying attention to your own voices or what is going on at the moment. The more you listen the more you live in the present moment which is where the magic happens.
Act. The first two steps are ALL about opening and receiving. This last step is all on you, baby! This is where you take the Divine Download received and act upon it.(Please note: sometimes it’s not about taking physical action. You might get a “No” or “Not Right Now.” Honor whatever guidance you’ve been given.) Don’t over think this part. Let the action arise from the knowing. Trust that the guidance is true. Take action. If you don’t you’ve discarded the gift. Taking action on your intuitive insights is like flexing a muscle. The more you flex it the more it grows. Your intuition is a unique language. It is custom made for you. Only you can translate your insights into manifestation. The more you act on your insights the more insights are readily available to you when you need them.
Use Relax, Listen, Act as your daily mantra and practice. Take some time in the morning and evening to check in with your inner guidance. Throughout the day notice where you’re holding tension in your body. Are you gripping the steering wheel when you drive? Are you tensing your shoulders when you’re at the computer? Are your legs taut from being in the same position? Do a body scan throughout the day and notice. Invoke your Relax, Listen, Act.
There are thousands of paths to the still small voice within. Some are complex and take years to master. I’ve tried many, many awareness practices over the past 50 years. These 3 steps are a distillation of what provides a rock solid certainty on your insights and guidance.
Whatever method you use: Practice. Practice. Practice. It will make doubt and uncertainty a thing of the past and insights and intuitive flow your way of being.
