Women are no doubt creative, intelligent and every bit alluring when it comes to being in power. There is no surprise that women would want to be the masters of their own business.
Living a life of financial independence, without the constraint of expectations from others or self-doubt that surfaces when it comes to the inner voice of truth – intuition.
Intuition is that quick feeling of knowing; an impulse to go left when logic says turn right. For example, when shaking someone’s hand before you get to know them, what do you feel? Are your instincts correct? When walking into a room, can you feel the vibe?
Perhaps it’s tension or celebration. Intuition tells you the truth when an illusion may sway the eyes.
Intuition is the inspiration behind your calling to help others, translated to the business idea that won’t go away. It connects us to who we are beyond the identity we present to the outside world. Without intuition, we lose the power to create, dream, inspire and trust in ourselves, losing the will to keep going.
In the current climate, anxiety has increased, linked to the world’s pandemic, economic uncertainty and genuine enforced changes, intuition may be taking a back seat. With such a weight laying heavy on the heart, mind and real source of freedom that was to lead to an abundant life, intuition must be at the forefront of our being. How do we do this
Be Still, Let Go, Let God.
It doesn’t matter if you don’t like the word, God. Use what suits you, the Universe, Divine, Source, or whatever reflects the all-knowing, encompassing intelligence that intertwines with our being.
Be Still: means listen to your body, mind, heart, emotions. Don’t become distracted with an external stimulus. This may be hard as noise can be a pleasant distraction from the world inner noise of thought, worry and pain.
Begin by taking up to 30 seconds to scan your body from head to toe to feel sensations, heat, cold, discomfort, tightness. Build this up to 60 seconds and beyond, connecting with the body will mean re-connecting to your barometer of intuition, soul and spirit.
Let thoughts come and go without holding them. Again, this may be difficult; humans love to hold onto analyzing thought. Stop it! Hold for 5 seconds and let go, build this up to 10 seconds and keep going, learn to make the thought go and before long the mind becomes still.
Allow emotions to surface, feel them move through the body, taking note of where they sit and go. Let the feelings flow through and out of the body into the earth where they will dissolve. Continue this until you no longer hold the emotional state.
Let Go: doesn’t mean you have no control. Most people fear letting go of control because they fear the unknown (this is a huge issue right now). You still have control over choices, you have control over your body, thoughts, emotions and how you respond to external stimuli.
Be aware of how you currently perceive life. What aspects are you in sync with, and what would you like to change and why?
Realise that happiness and fulfilment are not something to obtain in the future. This is about now; you can feel, think, behave, emote and create satisfaction now, with what you have. A sense of inner peace will prevail when the realization of fulfilment is here right now leading to a massive shift towards letting go of control and allowing change and assistance from the higher source of infinite intelligence to step in.
Let God: Once you have become still and let go allowing the omnipresence to be felt, seen, heard and lived comes as naturally as breathing. You may receive a dream, vision, new way of experiencing life and higher intuitive intelligence.
How to Use Intuition in Trying Times
Start with small decisions. It could be as simple as deciding to join a goals group or log into a business event. For example, you see the event, and off-hand think, no, what’s the point. That is the ego. Instead, take a moment to go through, be still, let go and let God. Look at the event again. New insights may be compelling you to give it a go now and who knows that connection, idea, the validation you receive from the event may be the one thing that will take you to fulfilment.
Be willing to get it wrong. As you become mentally and emotionally clearer, your decisions will be more right than wrong. It is about being brutally honest with yourself in mind, emotions and heart at any time and anywhere. Be willing to allow all your decisions to be wrong and blow away how many right decisions are made.
