On Instinct

“Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.” Benjamin Spock

Nature teaches us about instinct. How does a Momma animal of any kind know how to care for it’s new offspring? By instinct.

We are no different. Perhaps the difference lies in our ability to trust ourselves in life. As human beings we have brains that can become very analytical and logical. We sometimes forget that we have instinct and that we can trust it. Rather than human ‘beings’ we become human analysers. 😊

Let us all be reminded of this amazing and innate natural gift that we all possess.

Definition of INSTINCT
1. 1: a natural or inherent aptitude, impulse, or capacity had an instinct for the right word
2. 2a : a largely inheritable and unalterable tendency of an organism to make a complex and specific response to environmental stimuli without involving reasonb : behavior that is mediated by reactions below the conscious level

Letting Go of Fear

“Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live”. Dorothy Thompson

Fear is something that most people struggle with their entire life. For the latter part of my life I have actively worked at coming from a place of Love rather than Fear. I find that the more I let go of fear, the happier I am, the healthier I am, and most importantly the more I enjoy life to it’s fullest potential.

I truly believe one of the greatest achievements or awards that we could give ourselves is to eradicate fear from our lives.

One of the easy ways I have found to snap myself out of the fear mode or fear frequency, is to imagine myself at the end of my life. Would the fear I am having matter at all? Or would I see it as having wasted precious moments of my life? The answer is always that I would have wasted precious moments of life and I even would see my self shaking my head and saying Why? Why? Why? 😊

Seeing myself at the end of my life also helps me to truly realize and grasp what I want in this lifetime. I am jolted into understanding the moments that count and letting go of things that don’t matter. It makes it much easier to prioritize what is important.
The more we move to a place of love, the more fear escapes out the back door and the less it appears. The more we can love ourselves, love others and love the world at large, the more the entire frequency shifts to a place of peace on earth.

I encourage you to join me in eradicating the fear in our daily lives and replacing it with love.

I love you all!

3 Clues to Intuition

We are all able to tap into our intuition or our sixth sense as some people like to call it.

I have found that there are 3 big clues to using your intuition.

1) Look for hesitation. If you find that you are hesitating about something, there could be a really really good reason and this is often your intuition at work. When you find yourself in hesitation mode about a decision of some sort, stop and check in with your intuition. Ask for clearer direction and trust that you are hesitating for a reason.

2) Watch your brain. When you are using your intuition, but are not listening to its direction, often your brain will kick in and try to offer an analytical reasoning…. Watch out for the brain and ego. For example, I have had situations where my gut was saying NO, NO, NO, but I listened to my mind telling me or selling me on why I should go forward and it turned out my intuition was completely right!

3) Things are not flowing. Do you ever make a decision and then find you are hitting continual road blocks or bumps in the road? This can be a big indication of not flowing with your intuitive road and decision making. When there is resistance, there is a reason. Once again check in with your intuition and ask for clearer direction.
When we combine all three of these traits in our day to day living, it is much easier to go with our gut and follow our intuition. 😊
