Being true to yourself sounds like a fabulous and easy thing to do.  We all have feelings about what is good for us and not good for us.  This is our intuition.  Following and understanding our intuition and recognizing the messages can be confusing if we aren’t taught how to undo the training to NOT follow our intuition.

Intuition is a gift from God that we all have in varying ways, shapes and forms.
