Expanding on yesterday’s post about intuition, I love the idea that God, the Universe, my soul (or whatever you choose to call it), is present and guiding me, on both small and significant things in my life.
Up until this past year, I didn't do a great job of listening to my intuition. I’ve definitely made a concerted effort over the past year to consciously listen to those little whispers and knowings. The problem is, I can't tell if my brain is dialoging with itself or if these whispers are really from a higher power. Hence, my quest to be more conscious of all of them and the outcome.
Yesterday’s post linked to an article that detailed an example of the seemingly insignificant, daily kinds of engagements we can have with our intuition. I’ve had numerous encounters like that, with things that seemingly are not at all impactful to my life (more inconveniences than anything). For example, just this morning, I saw my headphones on the dining room table, and the thought to pick them up came to mind. I acknowledged that thought and knew that I’d want them later at work to listen to my music. That said, I didn’t pick them up at that moment because I was busy doing something else. Wouldn't you know I left the house without them? I went without tunes all day. Damnit!
I love those whispers for the small stuff, but I really want them for the BIG stuff. You know, like changing jobs or other similar significant events. Why is it so hard to hear that whisper for the big stuff?
I'm considering that maybe it’s not that hard at all. Maybe the whisper is there, but I justify the hell out of going in the opposite direction. Maybe my logical, conscious brain takes over and starts analyzing the action. Likely my brain starts to think of all the reasons I don't need to listen. (I can't be the only one that's turned down an opportunity because it either presented significant risk, offered less pay, or felt like I was being selfish if I took it.)
As you can tell, intuition is a BIG topic for me. One I’ll continue exploring tomorrow. ’Til then, I welcome you to share your experiences with intuition!
Be open to what comes.
