Instead Of Thinking, Feel
Next time you are struggling to make a decision, stop all the thinking and feel your senses and what an effect it has on you. Your mind chatter can become confusing and make decisions harder. Deep down you know what you need to do but it’s hard to choose when your mind is making you afraid to make that decision. Trust your inner feeling.
Be In Line With Your Values
Intuition never ignores your values but your mind can easily get distracted. Really connect with your values and you will start to get more in touch with intuition speaking to you and how it feels.
See How Your Body Reacts
If you experience a physical reaction when making a decision, try to listen to it and distinguish it as a good or bad feeling. Your body is the tool intuition uses when giving you signs. Listen to your body instead of your mind and you will connect with your intuition deeper.
Notice your intuition getting stronger in silence and meditation. Clearing the mind is a wonderful tool to further strengthen that inner feeling. When our mind is off distractions, recognising intuition and reading the signs is easier.
