In the recent time class I did, we talked about following our gut, inner wisdom, intuition more. I think one reason we don’t, is we don’t trust ourselves. "If I start listening to myself, all I am going to want to do is read novels and lay on the beach."
But, really we know we have more to offer than a suntan. And that inner light wants let out. We feel we are made to connect, help and take care of ourselves and those we love.
And it can be practical, too. I was at the grocery store getting the food for dinner, when I had the feeling I needed to buy something. I then told myself I already had it at home and don’t need it. Turns out I didn’t, so I had to go back to the store.
What would happen if today you followed your inner wisdom two times? Write down what happens. Did it feel good? Did it feel purposeful? What happened?
The more you stack up times that you followed your inner wisdom and it was right, you can trust yourself more.
