There is nothing stronger than intuition

Nothing is stronger than intuition.

Intuition is what I call “inner trust.” Most people, including me, do not trust their intuition even though this inner trust guide is almost always in all ways right. But, you should tune in to your intuition. Author Laura Day in How to Rule the World From Your Couch, explains how your intuition will help you become more powerfully connected to your life. She says that intuition, which women have a stronger sense of, is the staff of success. Bob Scheinfeld in The Eleventh Element, calls intuition the X-factor for success.

Claude M. Bristol in The Magic of Believing, asserts that tapping into the subconscious guide of intuition is the most effective way of bringing into reality what you want. Shoghi  Effendi intimated the power of intuition in Five Steps to Problem Solving, a pilgrim note, that you must trust your inner voice.

At early growth stages we are taught to fight intuition. By the time children enter school their intuition begins to suffer because most children are not allowed the free will to follow their inner trust because they are taught to follow the rules. Then, often when a child enters school, robot learning and more rules follow. Not much longer after school control rules, are embedded in one’s behavior habits, adults further bury their inner trust with frenetic noise which is often confused with the notion that stress and over-activity is the normal ritual of growing up.

What a crock of deception! Noise and over-activity mask inner trust and cut off your inner hearing like a lap band does the intestine in bariatric surgery. Neither is good for the body.

Nothing is stronger than intuition. This I know for sure.

There have been some recent instances where I knew exactly what to do intuitively and out of poor habit abandoned what i already knew when Itried to ignore my inner trust. Each time that I did, I harmed myself. But, when I followed my intuition, honestly it was the perfect decision.

About a year ago I spent two and a half long days with James Arthur Ray in Atlanta. The sessions were energetic, engaging and well designed to make you a dry pocketed follower. Make no mistake, James Arthur Ray knows how to read people and the energy around them. On day two during an intermission I had the chance to meet him and give him a copy of my book, Climb Every Obstacle: Eliminate Your Limits! Without much mind thought, but clear impressions about energy, James Arthur Ray told me “You already know what to do.”

Truth is truth. What he said to me was true. I did already know what to do and so do you. Here are a few ways to boost your intuition:
1. Be still. Take time to listen in quiet certainty.
2. Tune to how you feel. Is your gut quiet or rumbling. Pay attention to that reaction.
3. Keep an intuition journal. This way you will have a source book of how many times your inner trust (intuition) was right.
4. Patience. Have patience with this new habit. It will take some time to undo so many years of rule programming, so keep un-layering and confirming your growth towards solid intuition.

Understand that the right to use intuition is a sacred privilege. Never forsake your inner truth; it will take you to sacred places you have never been before.

Trust yourself and soar!

 

 

 

 

Brighten the Corner Where YOU Are

What is life all about anyway? Some say it is to build success, some argue it is to do good and spread goodwill, others pose that life is a self discovery journey that encompasses feeling good and doing good, a personal measurement of success and finding your “zen” passion points.

All true, no debate from me. But let me add that I think life is to be lived from one happy moment to the next. It is not that we don’t meet challenges or obstacles, I acknowledge that in my book Climb Every Obstacle: Eliminate Your Limits!

Of course we do face unsettling events, death, trauma, fear, or other mixtures of emotions that can of course blend into a simmering pot of caution. The message here is to find the bright side.

Brighten the corner where you are; in the present, right now. Once you learn how to ferret out even a second of bright clarity, you can begin to build an automatic gush of understanding and happiness. Something life changing actually happens when you STOP fighting with the way things are and live brightly in the present.

Right now I am reading, Women, Food and God. Gennen Roth,the author, has taken me to to my mythical core where I now see that the learned stories and past histories I have learned primarily from my Mom who does not accept or embrace her body as a prized sanctuary of grace, even though ironically her name is Grace, has shadowed my feelings about my own body and it outer worth.

My Mom is incredible. She is beautiful, intelligent, accomplished and a woman of worth. But, the way she shies away from her body shows a disconnect from the good God placed in her.

As her only daughter child, I am only now beginning to accept my body – no more abusive diets, no more starvation, no more over extension, no more people pleasing, no more avoidance, no more!

I know how to cast light, I really do. If there is one characteristic that I have inculcated it is my ability to let others shine and to find their brightness. I don’t need the limelight. But there is a hidden dagger with this last statement…no I don’t need the limelight, but I should too let my whole life, including my body, shine.

As late as last month if someone called me sexy, especially a man, I would cringe thinking I have been too forward or worse cast my femininity too far. Ridiculous!

Geneen Roth has helped me drill down into where those un-true stories I tell myself about being sexy came from. I had to scope my whole being, expose my lunacy, feel the heat, describe what I saw, listen to what I heard to find the controlling lies to re-write my truth and find the real joy of inner brightness.

The core answer to brightness in any corner where is are is LOVE; it’s the alpha and the omega. Only LOVE emits brightness. Geneen says when you are in a space of love “it feels like relief. It feels like infinite goodness… It feels like the essence of tenderness, compassion, joy, peace. Life LOVE itself.”

Learn this lesson well.

Whatever your inner issue is – food, addiction, money, loneliness, family, spirit, friends, sabotage, body image, sexiness – you can move beyond what dims your true light to a bright eminence that eclipses the light of sunshine.

You deserve lovely sunshine each and every day and so do the people who are in your bright corner.
