Jan 16 – Are you hindering intuition's power? How many times have you caught yourself saying, "I should have trusted my gut." or " I should have listened to my intuition."? There is plenty of science to back up the power of our ability to sense something before we fully understand why. If you are feeling something is not quite right, chances are it isn't and you need to get more clarifying information. If you sense an urgency to take action or that you should pursue something without knowing why the feeling is so strong, you should heed the invitation.
Take an MM&I Moment to awaken in how you may be limiting your intuition. First, think about a recent circumstance where you made a decision about a situation or someone based on past experiences. Perhaps you decided not to proceed or continue to get to know the person. Could you have confused past stories playing in your head for intuition? Now consider a situation where you had a gut feeling or spark of inspiration, and you dismissed it due to all that still needed to be done on your to-do list. Could your focus on things needing done in your immediate future have overpowered your intuition? While the past provides insight and the future can be beckoning your attention, your intuition is always focused on the exact moment it presents itself. Those who embrace their intuition take a few seconds to ask themselves what they should do or what they could do, and then act accordingly. It's called being in the moment, and intuition rewards this mentality in the most glorious ways.
