To get in touch with your own internal intuitive guidance you need to regularly give yourself time to get quiet, and to look with in. This can be as easy as giving yourself a 5 minute “time out”, much as you would give a child! As you give yourself this mini-break, close your eyes and breathe, getting in touch with your body. In your mind, ask your body, “What message do you have for me body?” “What is my next right action?” And just notice what comes into your mind, or what feelings might float up.
This is the first step to owning your intuition for yourself! It might not make sense right at the beginning. For example, as you get quiet and start listening within, you may get the picture of a chocolate milkshake in your mind, or the strong feeling that you'd really like to take a bath. These are clear messages from you body about what you need at that moment! Maybe you've been stressed, and feel like you need some fun. And you remember when you were a small child how much fun it was to get a chocolate milkshake, what a treat it was! This guidance is telling you to let a little fun into your life. Or the need to take a bath is your body's way of telling you you need some nurturing and self-care. As you listen and ask what the guidance means, you'll get a strong knowing what to do.
The more you get quiet and check within, trust what comes up and take action, the easier it becomes to rely on this internal guidance system to help you make decisions for yourself as you go through your day! Have fun playing with your own built in GPS system!
