There is a part of you that always knows your truest desires even when you think you are lost. Your intuition is always guiding you towards the “right” choice.
Maybe you can’t hear your intuition, because the anxiety and fear and so much louder, but it IS there.
Here’s a journaling exercise that can help you connect to your intuition.
Think back to a time when you ignored your intuition. Why did you do it? What was it like to override your gut feelings? What was the outcome of this decision? How did you know that you were ignoring your truth?
Can you think of times when you made a decision that just felt right? How did it feel to trust yourself? What was the outcome of that decision?
Whether you’re holding onto beliefs, people, or stories that no longer reflect who you want to be, the reason behind it is fear.
We’re holding onto things we’ve outgrown for way too long because we’re scared of giving up something we know so we’ll, even when it feels constricting.
The unknown is full of possibility and options. It is an empty space that you get to fill up with whatever you chose to.
How would you show up differently if you weren’t scared of the unknown, but could be excited by it?
When you say:
“This is just who I am”
“I don’t know how”
“It is what it is”
You close the possibilities for change and progress.
Be mindful of these phrases. They sound innocuous, but repeated over time, they become deeply ingrained beliefs that will keep you stuck in powerlessness.
If you want to move forward and feel capable of change, you’ll have to be willing to intentionally shift these beliefs.
