We have to trust our inner knowing, rather than over thinking it. If you are in fear, you won’t be open to intuition because your intuition will never guide your fears. Intuition will only work if you are willing to accept what it tells you, so open your heart awareness. There are 4 basic steps: trust, ask, receive and act. Get grounded and centered; release limitations by deeply breathing in light and breathing out limitations <deep breathing engages the whole chakra system>. Set the intention: “I trust that I am aligned with what is for the highest and best good of all concerned.” Then ask <preferably out loud since it engages our senses> for answers that are relevant to the question. Then allow your body to feel your responses, and ask more questions if you need further clarification until your feel at peace. Responses can be in many forms: thoughts, dreams, memories, impressions, images, feelings, words, tastes, smells, and simply just knowing. Your intuition wants to empower you, make your more aware, and expand your consciousness. Then you can act out of love when you receive sudden bursts of insight, flashes of awareness, synchronicity, gut feelings or hunches.
Always look for the lesson <what feels true right now> when following your intuition and you can’t go wrong. Our intuition will always take us to the next experience and each experience is important. Remember: just because an experience was painful, doesn’t mean it was wrong.
