3 Ways to Tune into Your Intuition

Have you ever had a feeling that seemed totally crazy and made no sense, only later to find out that you should have followed that feeling?  This has happened to me many times, I get a gut feeling about something like take a sweater to the restaurant but my rational self kicks in and tells me that’s crazy it’s 100 degrees outside, only to regret later that I didn’t listen to my self and bring a sweater because it’s freezing inside the restaurant.

I think most of us have had an awareness of our inner knowing, our intuition, a time when we had a feeling in our gut and we just knew something without knowing how we knew it, but we rationalized it and questioned it and later regretted that we didn’t follow it.

Your intuition is your inner compass, it’s your own magical north star, and it always wants to guide you for your highest good.  Unfortunately we’re not taught to listen to our own self, we’re taught to seek advise and listen to outside influences.

If you want your life to flow more easily than it’s time to get tuned into your intuition.

Here are 3 ways to get started:

Tune into your body, when you get that feeling stop and pay attention to it.  Mostly it’s a gut feeling, a knowing that you get.  If the sun is shining but your gut is telling you to take an umbrella with you,  take it.

Sonia Choquette who is a world renowned six sensory spiritual teacher, says that the best way to begin is to “get a small pocket notebook that you can carry with you at all times.  Every time you get a hunch, gut feeling “AHA!” moment…jot it down in your notebook.  Don’t let your ego censor, judge, discriminate or in any way edit the information or feelings you receive.  Don’t worry if your vibes feel silly, irrelevant, irrational, or stupid; or if you think that what you feel is nothing more than your imagination.  Write it all down anyway.  Your mind will see that every vibe you have makes sense in one way or another over time.”

Trust – when you get that mystical feeling about something, trust it, even if it makes no sense in that moment.  Follow your inner feeling.  And by the way trusting yourself will build up your self-confidence.

Your intuition is not loud, it’s subtle, it nudges you quietly, it warns you when you’re in danger, it guides you to what is best for you.  It’s a knowing that you get that cannot be explained, you just know things.  While the gardner was here last week I had a gut feeling that the new guy helping him messed up the sprinklers, I knew this before I had solid proof.

It’s important to bear in mind that there are other energies working within you, for example there’s your rational mind and your ego so learn to distinguish between those and your intuition. The more you become aware of and follow the urgings of your intuition,  the more connected you’ll be with your inner knowing, and following your inner knowing is showing up for yourself.  The more you show up the greater your life becomes.

I’d love to hear your thoughts, feel free to leave a comment.

The Benefits of Buying Yourself Flowers

Everything has a reason and a purpose in this universe and flowers are no exception, they are magical, mystical beings that support and love us in many ways.

When I bring fresh flowers home, I can feel a change in energy as soon as I walk in, I can feel the atmosphere change.  Actually, I can feel something as soon as I start looking at them in the store, something changes energetically in my body.  My heart opens, I’m overcome with a feeling of joy and love, there’s a calm that comes over me and they put a smile on my face.

For years I sat and waited for someone else to bring me flowers, I never thought of flowers being something that I can give to myself, it was something that someone else gave you for a special occasion.  Once when I was visiting a friend I noticed that she had flowers in a couple of places in her home and when I asked who got her the flowers she said no one, she bought them herself.  It was like a light bulb turned on in my head.  WOW!, I love flowers so much but I never thought of buying them for myself.

I’ve been buying myself flowers ever since.  Although I have to admit that there are times that I have flowers every week, and than there are times, and I don’t know why, that I stop for a while, but they have become a part of my overall self-care/self-love must have, and I never go for too long without them.

Just some of the benefits – flowers can brighten up a room and your mood.  Because they oxygenate the air, they help our concentration and memory, which in turn boosts our brain cells and makes us feel better.

Just looking at them the color, the loveliness makes us feel happy and peaceful.

They can also have a fundamental impact on our health, they reduce stress, aid in helping us have peace of mind, sleep better and just overall feel better.  They help us feel less anxious or depressed. And they even have the power to increase our productivity and boost our creativity, and who doesn’t want that?

We’re blessed to have different flowers for every season, and I love having them in my home.  It’s become a part of my ritual of welcoming in a new season and I feel more connected with nature in their presence, oh and one other thing, they raise the energy and vibration all around me.  If you’re thinking that you have to spend a lot of money on them, you don’t.  I usually buy them in the supermarket and the price is usually less than $10, I bought the ones in the first picture for $6.99.

I hope I’ve inspired you to buy yourself flowers, make them a part of your self-care/self-love ritual and feel their magical mystical powers embrace you.

How to Give Yourself a Sweeter Day

Remember you are awesome!

Embrace yourself.

Be kind to yourself.

Give yourself a break.

awesome1

You don’t need to do it all in one day.

You don’t have to be a perfectionist all the time.

You don’t have to accomplish your to do list all in one day.

You can let go a bit and allow yourself to just be.

And put your feet up.

Give yourself 30 minutes of some – me – time.

Have a cup of chi or coffee or whatever makes you say ahhhhhhhhh.

Breathe.

Do something that brings joy into your body.

Walk barefoot on the grass.

Just stare out the window.

Read a few words from your favorite book.

Doodle.

Meditate.

Dance.

Or, just do nothing at all.

Just be.

Remember – YOU ARE AWESOME!

Sweet Blessings

What You Need to Know About Strength

There’s no question in my mind that I am now opening up to a higher level of conscious awareness, and that I’m transitioning into a higher place.  Actually I’m already in this higher place.  And in this higher awareness I have the ability to heal myself and others in a deeper greater way.  And for this I need the support of – strength energy.

The Strength card came to remind me that I have this energy within me and I’m being guided to summon it for this new journey I’m on.  Strength is the energy that I’m to lean on and walk with on this new path, it will support me on this journey of a higher conscious awareness.

I think sometimes we forget that we have this energy within us, and that we can summon it anytime.

This is a reminder that Strength is within you, that you’re not alone and you do have all the support you need.   Call on it, bring it out to the surface.  You may need it because you’re going through a physical challenge. Or, starting a new endeavor, a new job, ending a relationship, or are scared to make the change you know you need to make.  Or, you may be in a time of transition.  Whatever it is, you have the Strength energy within you, lean on it, let it support you.  If you believe in angels, spirit guides, or any other cosmic beings, call on them to help you access your Strength energy.  It will serve in your healing and on your journey.

The energy of Strength within you is unlimited, and you can draw on it for support at anytime to bring balance and wellbeing to yourself.

The card is from: The Fifth Tarot: Restoring the fifth element, written by Martien & Teressena Bakens, Illustrations by Teressena Bakens
