The soul (or intuition) is where the mind and body connect. It is the divine home of your highest, truest self. For so long, I thought I didn’t even have an intuition. I was so disconnected from my body and my soul. But once I began to establish and nurture my divine connection, it literally changed my life.
When you allow yourself to be guided by your intuition, you make better decisions from a deeper, divine place within your being. This is the key to living a life that lights you up from the inside out. Intuition is the key to thriving.
So, how do you connect to your intuition? Before I give you an exercise you can use to practice connecting with your intuition, here are a few things you should know:
Intuition is all about self trust. You rely on control and ignore your intuition because you do not trust yourself to make the right decisions. In order to build trust in yourself and your body, you need to take action in the absence of evidence and build evidence as you go. So basically take a leap of faith and surrender to the flow of life.
Mind vs. soul. You have a fear voice (aka the monkey mind) and a soul voice (aka intuition). In order to access the soul voice, you need to get present, quiet, and listen. The guidance of your intuition is much different than the guidance of your mind, and one of the most important things you can do is identify the difference between the two.
Presence is key. Use presence and your breath to ground yourself and connect with your intuition. Connection to the body through presence always enhances communication with the soul.
Visceral Intelligence: One way to access your intuition is through visceral intelligence. This is a way for your body to communicate with you at a deeper level.
The goal here is to learn how to discern between a visceral yes vs. a visceral no in your body. Once you can tell the difference, and begin to trust your visceral intelligence aka intuition, it will become a key tool you can use to help make decisions, such as choosing food for health and hunger, resisting a binge, or saying yes to that shiny new job offer.
