int(y)o͞oˈiSH(ə)n / noun
the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning.
As defined, intuition is understanding without questioning, opening with certainty. The voice deep within answering and responding to our quest in the form of inspiration, new ideas, ah-ha moments, and let’s not forget the syncronistic “wait, what just happened?” moments.
When we set intentions, everything in the Universe conspires in our favor to see the actualization of those very heart felt intentions. Energy begins to move right before our very eyes as solutions just “appear” before us, we become connected to the right people, messages are delivered to us with the utmost perfect timing.
What if that persistent idea floating across your consciousness was up to something BIG?
I set the intention of actively aligning myself with speaking engagements in 2017, an intention I have held in the past with fear, but recently with excitement. Nearly three days after I sat with the space within my heart, seeing myself so clearly standing in front of others, synchronistic events began lining up. First, a series of ideas came in the form of reaching out to a local radio station, submitting a Tedx pitch and then across my computer screen came the Maine Women’s Network chapter. Everything inside felt ignited and excited. Listening to my ignition, I leapt into the unknown, asking a board member about the possibility of collaborating and serving as a speaker for their organization. The response was of great support with an invitation to attend the scheduled conference the following day where a “spot” happened to just open up! WOW! I was nervous, overwhelmed, excited, and delighted.
Upon arrival I could feel the energy buzzing amongst these professional women and I was one of them. The payoff for following my intuition was opportunity. Tuning in yet again, I followed the pull and found myself sitting at a table full of women who knew of me and my work as a healer-one of whom was on my website that very morning! Beaming and oh so delighted, I realized what was unfolding before me- my dream coming into fruition. Not only was I granted an opportunity to speak at this Fall’s conference, but I was united with women who were looking for me.
Set a clear intention and ask explore why you want it.
Setting clear intentions tells the Universe what you want, but playing with why you want it keeps you in your dream. Said in another way, when we invest in the vision, how good we feel, the openness and the delight surrounding us, the elevation in those feel good vibrations brings it exponentially faster into our reality.
Ask to be clearly shown in a way that you understand, what your next steps are.
My favorite- bed time intentions! A lot of this work is in releasing how we think it will look, or how we feel is the best way it can be done. The truth is, when we set intentions, we are actually inviting for that which is our best and highest good to be revealed, because we, in our limited scope never really know what better looks like for ourselves. So, ask. Ask to be shown the steps and follow what you are given. Ask for it to be revealed to you in a dream, or to be given a clear sign that you will understand. When something “comes your way,” you will feel ignited with a firm yes.
Let it go in complete faith that it already exists.
Surrender is the name of the game.
Obsessing, pining over what we want, and all the reasons why we want it now can sometimes keep our desires at bay. Control limits us, shuts us into our minds-wheel of limitations. When we open our selves to receiving, we simultaneously say, “I trust that the Universe has my back.” Surrender is about knowing that your prayers are answered and you are committed to following your intuitive action oriented hits. Saying your desire over and over again from a place of frustration calls more disconnection, restriction, close-mindedness and pain into your life. Set your intention, feel into your vision, and release with commitment to intuitive action. This is not a time of sitting back and waiting to see what will happen to pop into your life, but rather a time of pursuing with intuitive clarity the best way to into alignment of your desires.
Believe that you are worthy of receiving your desire.
When we believe that we are worthy, abundance flows towards and through us, filling us from the inside out. Abundance comes to us, flowing in the form of opportunity, energy of money and love. You don’t have to think about making it flow, rather just let it. Why? For the same reasons we do not have to think about breathing, we just let it. Whether or not we are open to receiving, abundance is always flowing. When we truly grasp this knowing, then it becomes our quest to dissolve our inner barriers, fears, doubts, and walls that keep us out of the flow. The message: Drink up! There’s plenty for all!
What’s the payoff for following your intuition, you ask?
Trust. Connection. Peace. Oneness. Harmony. Love. Abundance. Prosperity. Support. Guidance. Harmony. Clarity. Stability. Ground. Direction. Purpose. Personal Integrity. Balance.
So go forward with your big, beautiful dreams, you just changed your life!
