How much do you listen to your intuition? When we're not in tune with our intuition we can float along on the river of life without listening to the inner ripples and waves and what they might be trying to tell us. Being open to what your intuition might be telling you means listening to the feelings inside. Here are some things your intuition might be telling you.
1. Let Go of Grudges
Your intuition might be telling you to let go of the grudges you might be bearing. If we continue to bear grudges against people then it makes it difficult to enjoy the present moment as we're rooted in resentment and hatred. If all you feel is anger and hatred, it makes it difficult to live a fulfilling life.
2. Move on
It's essential to move on, forget about yesterday and accept that today is a new day. The past and future exist only in our imagination and all we have is the present moment. Your intuition might be telling you to move on but for some reason you're determined to have your feet firmly stuck in the past. Listen to your intuition which is telling you that whatever has happened has happened and there is nothing you can do to change it. All that matters is the present moment.
3. Break up
If you're in a relationship which you know is making you unhappy then it might be time to be honest with yourself and break up. You might be torn in so many different directions but ultimately you need to be true to yourself and your partner. Of course, I'm not suggesting that you should give up simply because you're going through a difficult patch but ask yourself whether the relationship has run its course and whether it's time to move on.
4. Start Something
Maybe your intuition is telling you to start something. Perhaps it's telling you to start that hobby, business or charity. Maybe it's telling you to quit your job and follow your dreams. Listen to your intuition because it is carefully guiding you to a place of happiness and fulfillment.
5. Go Somewhere
Have you ever noticed how your intuition tries to tell you that it's time to travel somewhere? Maybe you keep seeing pictures of a place you have been meaning to visit for years but have never had the guts to book that flight. Now is the time to listen to your intuition and travel to that place you have been dreaming of for a long time.
6. Be Honest and True
We seem to lose the ability to listen to our intuition as we get older. It's time to listen to your intuition as it's telling you how to live a more fulfilling life. Be honest and true to yourself and listen to the subtle signs and cues given by your body and the universe. Deep down, we all know what is right so we need to do right by ourselves and others. As Steve Jobs said, it's important to follow your heart and intuition.
7. Make a Decision
It's very easy to procrastinate and delay making a decision about something. Maybe your intuition is telling you to make a decision and stick to it. You know deep down what you need to do but having the courage to do it might be another matter. Rather than spending days deliberating, weigh up the pros and cons and make a decision.
8. Avoiding Danger
We have all heard stories about people who have listened to their gut and have avoided disaster as a consequence. Whether you just know there is something not quite right about someone when you're on a date or something amiss with a situation you're in, listen to your intuition as it might be telling you to get out of danger. As Anne Wilson Schaef said, "trusting our intuition often saves us from disaster".
These are just a few things your intuition might be telling you and it's essential to listen to the voice of intuition. Can you think of any other things your intuition might be telling you?
