Following your own intuition is generally not something that is widespread in our current cultures. Unless you are fortunate enough to be a member of an advanced culture. Many of the traditional cultures live by their own instincts. All non-human beings do. Ancient cultures did. All small children and babies do.
So it isn’t new. But it isn’t encouraged. Quite the opposite, it’s openly discouraged. So most people don’t know how to follow their intuition. Most people are firmly in their head, rather than their heart or their feelings. This means that if, or when, you start to explore this exciting area, you’ll come up against push-backs, resistance, maybe even downright hostility.
This has nothing to do with you, so you shouldn’t be influenced by it. Of course, that’s easier said than done. The push-backs only mean that you are making the other person uncomfortable. That isn’t your problem. That’s for them to deal with.
Your intuition doesn’t scream at you. It whispers. So if you’re not on the alert, you can easily miss the messages.
However, it IS persistent:)
When you don’t get it the first, or thirtieth time, it won’t give up.
One of the hardest things for people to stick with is their new feelings about doing something radically different. Such as jumping mainstream medicine and starting holistic health care, perhaps homeopathy.
Family pressure is the hardest to deal with. They will do their utmost to persuade you you are doing the wrong thing.
And you don’t want to upset them.
But how your family feels about your choices for you, has nothing to do with you. YOU are not forcing it on them.
It’s hard enough to change courses without the clamour of your family. So you may have to be a little brutal in your requests to be allowed to do what you feel is best for you.
Another approach is simply not to tell them. You can’t get away with that forever, but by the time you have to tell them, you may have a lot more confidence.
Following your own intuition may also be a new habit for you. You have to learn to trust it. And you have to pave new pathways.
To form new habits, the best way is to focus on the ‘why’ you want to and the ‘what’ that brought you to this point.
For example, if your health was deteriorating under mainstream medicine and you had heard others doing much better under homeopathic care, then you need to focus on the desire to feel better. That means looking ahead, to how you want to be. Not on the now, the ‘like it is’.
Old habits can die hard, but every time you feel yourself or your thoughts slipping back into how it is, then change the thought to how you want life to be. It will take time, but you will change the habits.
And the more you look forward to how you want your health to be, the more positive your outlook will be.
Resist the temptation to talk or think about your current health – it will keep you there.
Once you start following your own intuition, you will come to recognise the signs more quickly. They often don’t make any sense. But they always deliver.
Although many people use their intuition unconsciously, they do use it. An experienced practitioner of any therapy, will be using their intuition. Although many will hotly deny it.
Your intuition, your instincts are right for you. Not anyone else, not unless they are in your care.
