How many times have you resisting growth or change in your life because your Intuition was telling something that you didn’t want to hear?
“That can’t be right. It doesn’t make any sense.”
”That is scary…there is no way I am doing that!”
Despite what we might like to think, Intuition is more than our ‘yes’-man (or woman). And our Intuition will definitely call us out on our BS.
We can lie to ourselves; but Intuition will never lie to us.
Sometimes the truth hurts.
Yes, you are going to get sick if you don’t take care of yourself.
No, that diet isn’t healthy for you.
Intuition tells it like it is. And our natural instinct is to ignore it. Or justify ignoring it. Which is the recipe for distress.
When we ignore our intuition we create blocks which serve as a barrier to our growth.
“IT’S NOT A BREAK-DOWN… IT’S A BREAK-THROUGH.”
Do a quick centering meditation or your usual spiritual ritual to get you in a high-vibe place. Snuggle up with a blanket and tea ~ and get ready to get your writing on.
Think for a moment about the biggest problem area(s) in your life. What is causing you suffering? What recurring themes are you unable to resolve or release? And how long have these challenges been part of your life? In what ways has it repeated? Really dig into the block and write down anything that comes to you about it.
Lay down your pen, and get comfortable in your mediation position. Feel free to grab a mala, or crystal, or spray some essential oil ~ whatever you like to do to get your intuitive juices flowing from a high place. Then, close your eyes and focus on your breath, as you clear your head of any thoughts.
Once you have settled in to a quiet place inside….place your intention on receiving guidance for this block. Ask for your Higher Self to infuse your being with the wisdom to break through your blocks and into the light of truth and wisdom.
At this point, all you must do is open up to receive. Smile. (smiles shift our energy to light and openness) Affirm that you are open to receive the truth. Chances are, some things will start popping in to your head right away. This is likely your Intuition ~ as it often comes quickly in a flash.
As these impressions start to flow, you can write them down in your journal as they come, or go with the flow and write them down afterwards. Either way, be sure to honor every impression that resonates with you…ESPECIALLY the ones that are telling you what you DON'T want to hear.
If we have a block, chances are good that we have been choosing to ignore an intuitive prompt.
Pay REALLY close attention to anything that you wrote down that you ‘think’ is wrong. Pay even more attention to anything you are rationalizing not doing. This is where the gold mine is. This is where the secret to your break-through resides.
Forget about the fluffy, feel-good answers that you already know. You already got that right.
To have a breakthrough, you need to go deeper... push into your resistance until it breaks
And it will break. All it needs is the light of consciousness. All it needs is for you to take a chance, and try a different approach or open to something new.
Even if it is just for a day ~ or an hour. Give it a chance. Just be open to the idea that your Intuition knows something that you don’t.
If you do this whole-heartedly, authentically ~ you will be amazed at what happens. The Universe itself will reach out to support you. It will practically jump for joy that ‘at last!’ the message got through!
The dam opens. The block clears. And you think: Ugg! Why was I so thick-headed for so long!
But it’s okay. Because this is how we learn. And this is how we learn to trust in the Universe.
