During my time on retreat last week, I had the realization that over the past year I’ve cultivated a deeper relationship with myself – particularly with my intuition. You know that part of you that has an inner knowing if what is real and true? You have heard it referred to as your gut or your oracle. It can live in your heart, your belly, or even your lady parts (<– mine lives there!).
Your intuition likely has a quiet voice .
A voice that can be drowned out with the stress of work, fear, or numbing agents like food, drugs, and alcohol. But the thing about your intuition is it never goes away. She’s always there, letting you know what your truth is.
For a long time, I thought I didn’t have intuition.
I was living a life full of anxiety, stress, hormonal silencing (more on this in a later post, it’s a doozie!) and forms of numbing. Because once you hear your intuition, it’s hard not to listen. Mine, of course, was telling me about this new life that awaited me – one full of joy and freedom and wonder. And, in order to get that life, I knew I would have to make some pretty big (and scary) decisions. So a little dose of fear with a pinch of numbing agents was my go-to until I finally decided to go for it and align my life with what my intuition had been telling me all along.
What happened next was pretty amazing. I’ve been able to build a business around doing what I love, help people re-align with their own intuitive knowing, and fall even more in love with my life (my body, my marriage, my community, and my business). And all it took was listening to my body and aligning with heart.
