Hey Team! this week I wanted to talk to you guys about trying to find answers that you already know. This basically came about when we were at the Mind Body Spirit Expo, and I looked at all the people who were in line to go and see psychics. And I just remember when I wanted to see a psychic, I wanted answers to what I now know what actually I already knew what I wanted, answers to.
00:00:20:17 - 00:00:40:04
I knew what I wanted to ask and I knew what I wanted to be, the outcome to be. And as I was reflecting on that, looking at everyone in the line, I thought we already sort of know the answers that we're looking for. And if we already know the answer, why are we seeking outside validation? Why isn't it us knowing in ourselves enough?
00:00:40:04 - 00:00:46:26
Or are we just not aware that that initial this is what I want is our answer? You know, I.
00:00:46:26 - 00:00:57:34
Think that's like our intuition, but we just don't like what is that? Yeah, this is definitely a reminder to tap into that natural intuition that's telling you pretty much the first thing you think of. Yeah.
00:00:57:34 - 00:01:18:15
It's usually it's usually one answer. So, for example, if you're going to go and see a psychic because you want to know if the person that you're currently with is your true soulmate, you already know deep inside you. You know what answer that you want to come from that interaction. Yeah. So that's your answer. Do you know what I mean?
00:01:18:19 - 00:01:30:18
And your answer might be, I want them to be my soul mate, but I know that they're not wanting. And what is are two very different things. Yeah. And sometimes that's hard to accept. So of course, we're going to search for that external validation.
00:01:30:18 - 00:01:47:40
In ancient times, everyone was actually super in touch with their intuition. It was very common to hear your ancestors or your inner voice and actually follow through on that. I think technology and just our culture doesn't really allow us to do that any more.
00:01:47:40 - 00:01:49:16
It doesn't give us the time or the space.
00:01:49:16 - 00:02:01:44
Yeah, it's like if you don't know the answer, go and see a doctor, go and do this, go and do that. But really, we know ourselves best. So I think a lot of the time, the best advice and answers just come from within.
00:02:01:46 - 00:02:24:04
If you're finding this hard to give you an idea about how you can do it is your best friend came to you with the exact scenario that you're in. What advice would you give your best friend about the person that they or you were seeing or the way that their boss, your boss was treating you or something along the lines, you know, what advice would you give them?
00:02:24:36 - 00:02:43:23
So I want you guys to use this weekly reminder as a reminder that what's inside of you is enough of an answer. You are enough just as you are the answer you have. That is all for this week. Comment below a time that you listen to your intuition and how you found out that you were right, or did you ever find out that you were right or is knowing in yourself was enough?
00:02:43:25 - 00:02:45:22
Yeah, I talk to you later. Team bye.
Society is constantly telling us we need ‘things’ outside of ourselves to be whole and complete, but that simply is NOT TRUE!
Within us we already have all the answers to all the questions we ask ourselves.
The problem is, we usually don’t trust our inner voice. We seek out external confirmation/validation before we believe what we already knew!
Have you ever known the person you were dating isn’t right for you, but you ignored that feeling and stayed with them anyway?
Have you ever looked at your Ora Ring for confirmation that you should have a rest day, even though you were already feeling sluggish and tired?
Have you ever gone to a Monday morning meeting and had a thought in your head that is screaming at you saying “This job isn't for you! Go and do something you love!”?
Inside each and every one of us is a voice, a feeling, a guidance system that is speaking to us regularly! But are you listening??
1. Practice listening to your intuition in a quiet place first:
Meditation and journaling is a great place to start tuning in more to your inner voice. Write down a question you have and then just start writing whatever comes to mind. At first this might seem strange but over time you will learn to trust that this is your intuition speaking to you and you will be able to get into a flow state when you do this exercise.
2. Imagine your friend was asking you:
Maybe you hear your inner voice but you don’t listen to it? We’ve all been there!
This time, take a different perspective. Listen to what it’s saying and then consider, what if a friend was asking you the question…. What would you say then? Then, take your own advice!
3. Trust your gut!:
Listening to your inner voice is important but try to follow through on it too. It won't be easy and might take time, but your intuition is trying to lead you to a better place, stop resisting!
