A couple of years ago, I wasn’t really in tune with my “intuition”. In fact, I would always wonder why I never was. Sure, I had gut feelings about certain things, but I wasn’t ever sure about my gut feelings – I would just second guess everything.
I noticed this because I started getting more into my faith, and would talk to my mom about how I didn’t understand how she was so in tune with her intuition. Whenever she would start talking about something, or asking for a sign, she would get that sign she asked for immediately. Me on the other hand, I would do the same thing and got nothing.
“WHY do I never get these clear signs that you get?” I would complain to my mom. I would ask the universe multiple times about various things. I tried to be patient. I thought it was a test. Or maybe I was just doing something wrong in life.
Fast forward to today, I am SO in tune with my intuition. I ask for a sign, I get it. I KNOW it’s a sign from the universe, and I am very confident in what my gut tells me. If something feels wrong it is, and if something feels right, it is.
How did I get from where I was, so lost and confused and never getting any sort of guidance, to where I am today, confident, in tune, and being guided in the right directions? I opened my eyes.
Back when I would complain about how I wasn’t getting any signs, I probably was – I just wasn’t paying attention.
I was so caught up in what I thought was right, what I thought I should and shouldn’t do, caught up in the what if’s and the buts, caught up in my own little world. I was stubborn, and I was frustrated which clouded the signs I was receiving, and thinking I knew everything. I was kind of stuck in a limbo, and never knew which way to turn.
This is why it is so important to be present in everything – be present with family, with friends, with whatever you are doing at the exact moment. Really listening – to what other’s say when they speak to you, listen to your gut instincts, listen to your intuition. Actually paying attention – to details, to the earth, to God, to your body, to what is going on around you and more importantly what is right in front of you.
I know it’s individualized and some people may not even believe in things like that, but I do. I believe that things happen for a reason, and if you feel strongly about something just pay attention to what it means. Whether you have a good or bad feeling about something, someone, or a situation, don’t ignore it.
Deep down we know, it’s just a matter of taking action.
