There are 5 things you must stop doing to strengthen your intuitive muscles and connect deeper to your guidance. We talked about Forgetting to Breathe and How focusing on what didn’t work blocks Intuition earlier.
Another big one is when we look outside of our self for validation.
Many of us were trained out of trusting our intuition. We were taught to follow the rules of society and religion. Or we were rewarded and acknowledged for following the family patterns.
When we questioned something because it didn’t feel right, we were ridiculed or even hurt.
We became conditioned to not trust our own advice. We are great at giving it for others but don’t trust ourselves to take our own.
Do you have someone who you always call for advice? When you have a big decision to make do you want to talk it over with someone because you don’t trust your own decisions? This is bigger than looking for a sounding board – this is wanting someone else to influence your choices because you fear making the wrong choice.
In the past, if there was a difference between what someone else thought I should do and what I felt I should do, I often ignored myself and took others advice. I realized that I wasn’t in touch with what my soul wanted for me.
I can clearly remember many crossroads along the way where I deeply felt that I should do something, but my friends or family said to do something else. I didn’t have the confidence or trust in my own wisdom to follow my guidance.
When I started my business I had brilliant ideas that didn’t fit traditional wisdom and by not following them it was harder to grow my business.
This lack of trust showed up as missed opportunities, procrastination, and unhappiness with my life.
I noticed the pattern of when I felt satisfied with my life was when I trusted and acted on my own feelings and intuition. As I started to do this more, I saw and felt the difference in my energy and happiness. Life flowed easier.
Opportunities appeared that I couldn’t see before. My business grew as I became more authentic and followed my energy and guidance.
Can you think of a time that you didn’t follow your intuition and regretted it?
