What happens when you don't listen to your intuition?
Just over one week ago - last Thursday, I was feeling good, healthy, fit and energetic. I stopped white sugar in my diet, I was getting up at 5am to do my meditations, listen to my hypnosis recording, and an hour of reading a work related book, all before starting my work day.
I felt good, empowered, focused and on track.
I headed out for my daily walk, it's my time to continue my personal development as I listen to my favourite podcast Mechanic To Millionaire with Dave MacArthur. I'm always so inspired by this guy.
Here is the video I recorded just as I finished my walk, feeling good, pumped and focused.
But you know what? Yep you guessed it, I was back in hospital. This time I had a blood clot.
For the second time I found myself lying up, powerless, scared, overwhelmed and trying to work out what was the lesson.
What was my body telling me? AND Why was I not listening?
Lesson - For weeks now, I've been pushing myself too hard, working for myself it's been hard to switch off or take time off. It's been a challenge to relax and allow myself time to do nothing, watch a movie or read a novel.
I refused to listen to my inner voice no matter how unhappy I was, or how tired I was feeling. I kept pushing myself to do things I didn't want to do, that didn't feel in alignment with me. I was ignoring my intuition.
I thought I had to say yes to everything and anything that presented as an opportunity, even if it didn't feel right.
Sometimes I just get so confused about not going for something because of fear, Vs not going for something because it doesn't feel like the right choice.
There are times I let the noise around me become louder than my intuition and inner voice. I just need to remember to slow down and listen more.
And when I don't there's always a price to pay.
I'm convinced that when we ignore our inner voice and push ourselves against what feels good, the Universe will find a way to stop us, and it's usually not pleasant.
I tell my clients this all the time!
What I've learned....
Over this past week I learned that I don't like letting people down, I don't like it when I can't do it 'ALL', and I particularly dislike it when I've decided to do something that I think is a great idea or a great opportunity only to find that it's not and isn't working out.
It feels like failure to me, it feels like disappointment, it feels like I got it wrong, or I feel frustrated with myself for not listening to my intuition to begin with.
By pushing myself, or saying yes when my intuition is screaming NO! I run head first into these experiences and learn my lesson the hard way.
As painful and scary as it might feel to say 'No that's not for me' and listen to my intuition - It's nowhere near as painful as Kidney stones, or as scary as a blood clot!
Lesson - Listen to your intuition, it speaks to you 24/7.
