Inspired Intuition - Following Your Inner Voice
"Some people call the still, small voice insight or intuition?Our insight is a gift from God, not to be taken lightly or for granted... If we acknowledge that the voice doesn't just pop up in our mind like some haphazard jack-in-the-box, that it is available to us always, we have the most important source of assistance in building our dreams. We can turn random intuition into regular inspired insight." From Building Your Field of Dreams by Mary Manin Morrissey
Inspired Intuition - Following Your Inner Voice
I have a wonderful story to share with you - one that comes from a client who has given me permission to share her story. This client (Jenny) was on a journey of self-discovery, acknowledging her life's dream (working with plants and landscape design), and being open to the possibility of exploring her dream. A natural fear that kept popping up was how to pursue her dream and generate income at the same time. Along the way Jenny got her answer and if she had ignored her intuition, she might have missed it!
Here's what happened: Jenny always received a quarterly newsletter from her alma mater which she normally tossed without reading. One quarter,when the newsletter arrived, an inner voice (intuition) told her to read this particular newsletter. In the newsletter was a request for a sorority house mother. Reading this, Jenny got very excited, because she also dreamed about being a house mother and working with young people (something she is very good at by the way). Quickly her mind kicked in and said "Oh, why bother to call? They've probably filled the position". But following her heart and intuition, she called anyway and was immediately asked to come for an interview. The sorority loved her and hired her on the spot.
Now here's the best part - she received a salary, a furnished apartment in the sorority, all meals, cleaning service, holidays and summers off, a chance to work with young people, and time to take all the courses she wanted in landscape design right there at the university! And all because she followed her intuition (reading the newsletter) and acted on the synchronistic event (the opening for a sorority mother). This is a perfect example of SynchroDestiny - trusting one's intuition, acting on synchronicities, and following one's natural path (destiny). When we do this, we are on the path of least resistance, and resources line up to support us.
How many times have you had a hunch, inkling, a gut reaction or other display of intuition and failed to act on it? Sometimes our intuition is a warning; other times it's a nudge to do or follow something. What happens when you don't follow your intuition? Do you regret it later and say: "I knew that would happen!"? Here's a personal example when I am playing golf: I am ready to play my approach shot to the green and my intuition (first reaction) is to take a 9 iron for the shot. But then my mind takes over and says, "What are you crazy? You'll never get the ball there with a 9 iron! You need a different club." And so I talk myself out of the 9 iron, reach for an 8 iron, and hit the ball over the green! Then I say: "I knew the 9 iron was the right club! Why didn't I trust my intuition?" I find that the golf course is an excellent place to practice listening to my inner voice!
How do we know when it is intuition? Things happen synchronistically; there is a feeling of effortlessness; there is a feeling of elation or inspiration; it just 'feels' right; and it keeps coming up. (Remember the story).
Are you paying attention to your intuition? If not, what's an area in your life where you could start listening to and following your inner voice? Pick one area and over the next week listen to your internal guidance. What is it telling you to do or not do? Take a chance and follow the guidance. The more we pay attention to and act on this guidance, the clearer it becomes. And with clear guidance comes more synchronicities leading you on your natural path. Voila! SynchroDestiny!
