Follow Your Instincts

Follow your instincts. That’s where true wisdom manifests itself. – Oprah Winfrey

Many times our instincts and intuitions come as the small voice inside our heads. It’s the quiet urge that propels us onwards in our journey; our life’s journey. For some it’s a gut feeling or a prickly sensation that makes us want to go in a different direction.

For me, it’s usually just a quiet voice. I get a thought all of a sudden and it feels more right than anything else that’s going on in my head. All of us have this capability but many of us simply don’t listen. But, if we do, and then follow what our instinct is telling us, then we will hear better next time.

I believe we have all the answers we need for this life. If we have the feeling that we lack answers, it’s because we aren’t listening, asking the right question or we don’t like we what we hear. When we sift through the myriad of thoughts we have each day, most of us can recognize our instinct or intuition. It’s always at a low volume, speaks the truth and has nothing but our best interest at heart.

How do we get more connected to our instinctual feelings and intuitions? Meditating helps to calm the cacophony that seems to be in the minds of most of us. You can also ask yourself a question. The absolutely first thought that pops into your head is your intuition. You really have to listen because there will be a flood of thoughts which means you could mistake the second or successive thoughts as your intuition. All you need is practice.

Have a great day!
