Why We Don’t Trust Our Intuition
Trusting our intuition is something that sounds so easy, yet we can make it so hard on ourselves. Learn why we have become separated from our intuition and how to reconnect to our inner voice.
Awhile back I wrote about rediscovering your intuition and felt it was time to revisit this topic as so many of you have emailed me asking about how you can really rebuild the trust factor with your own intuition.
Trusting Your Intuition and Trusting Your Path
To start expanding yourself to realize your dreams it is time to use and trust your intuition. That sounds simple enough, right? It is probably not the first time you have heard that said. Then why don’t we just do that? Why is it so difficult to trust that the small quiet voice that comes from within might actually be exactly what we need to do right at that exact time?
Fear – The Great Immobilizer
The fear of actually succeeding is a big part of why we don’t trust our intuition. If we actually succeed with the goal we have set, that might mean that you would have to do some things that are well outside our comfort zone to get to that goal. It might mean having difficult conversations or speaking your truth.
How Does Confusion Serve Us?
We like to think we are confused and that our intuition really isn’t working for us. You of course know at soul level that this is bunk. You do really know what to do, but most times the prospect of doing the next step is too scary and instead of taking that step to work through the fear we like to think we are confused. We can be stuck in confusion for years when it comes to doing our life purpose.
The Rational Mind
Our rational mind is all about the thinking through of our actions. We think and think and think. You know what this gets for you? Analysis Paralysis. It is like in order to keep our minds busy, we feel we need to analyze and over-analyze a situation or decision. The problem is that by doing this we have not truly made a decision, we have instead just drawn out the decision process even longer. This is how we start to distrust our intuitive guidance.
Reconnecting to Our Intuition
It is all about trust. It is about taking that quiet thought that makes our soul sing and staying with it. I think one of the most important things to realize is that fear and confusion is natural and part of the process of growth. By understanding and observing what comes up when we make a true decision purely from intuition, we can recognize those areas that we are not in full alignment with and take actions to be in alignment.
So, if you are still having trouble trusting your intuition, stay tuned. In a few days I will be announcing something special that will help many of you tune into your inner voice.
