Monday Morning Wake Up Call:
Your Motivation, Inspiration, & Direction for the Week Ahead
Trust your Intuition
Did you ever stop to think about how birds use their intuition to navigate their way to breeding grounds halfway across the world? Deer, rabbits, and other prey use their intuition to avoid running into predators. The average human, on the other hand, will take the advice of a total stranger, or the person who sits at the desk next to them instead of doing what they know, deep down inside, is the right or best thing. How many times have you thought, in hindsight, I knew I should have listened to my gut?
Every one of us has an incredible inner guidance that we can use whenever we need it. When there is an important decision to make, don’t run around asking everyone what you should do. Instead, find a quiet place and give yourself time to feel, think, and contemplate. You have all the answers inside of you. Practice sharpening your intuition, take the time to strengthen your connection to your own inner voice, and trust that you know what’s best for you. The more centered and tuned-in you are, the mightier you will be!
Something to Think About
A thinking mind is an awesome tool that’s meant to be used, but it pales in comparison to that inner voice that you have. Animals have always relied solely in their instincts. They don’t need to know why, they just do what they know is right, based on their instincts. They trust they will get to where they are going, and they do. Why do humans have such a difficult time listening to their gut or their instinct?
This week, find a quiet time to sit down and review your goals for this week, this month, and this year—then follow your gut, or your instincts, no matter what! See what happens.
Words of Wisdom
Intuition is seeing with the soul.” – Dean Koontz
“You will never follow your own inner voice until you clear up the doubts in your mind.” – Roy T. Bennett
“Our bodies have five senses: touch, smell, taste, sight, hearing. But not to be overlooked are the senses of our souls: intuition, peace, foresight, trust, empathy. The differences between people lie in their use of these senses; most people don’t know anything about the inner senses while a few people rely on them just as they rely on their physical senses, and in fact probably even more.” – C. Joy Bell C.
“Don’t try to comprehend with your mind. Your minds are very limited. Use your intuition.” – Madeleine L’Engle
“When you reach the end of what you should know, you will be at the beginning of what you should sense.” – Kahlil Gibran
