"True insight comes from within.â€? Socrates
Introduction When looking for advice or seeking an answer, where do you turn? Do you have a trusted ally, a respected colleague, or wise relative who gives you insight? Or do you look within? You have a magnificent tool at your disposal to help you make solid decisions and be more successful in all areas of your life. One that will help you find success and happiness, and know what is true at any given moment. That tool is your intuition. Intuition is something we all have, but donâ€™t always understand. The information your intuition provides is signaled through your body. This happens all the time. Perhaps itâ€™s happening right now as you read this. Did the hairs on your arm or neck stand on end? Did you feel a warmth in your heart or abdomen? Little signs like those occur regularly, and we typically tend to dismiss them.
But they are subtle communications that are trying to guide and inform you. You simply need to know how to read the signs your intuition is sending, and how to better understand that language. Your body is the key to clarity. Clarity is a gift; it allows us to make confident decisions, create effective solutions, enjoy deeper experiences and rediscover our truest self. Clarity gives us the benefit of foresight rather than the lessons of hindsight. The source of this clarity is your intuition. Intuition has different names: inner guidance, God’s voice and gut instinct, to name a few. You may call it something else. Perhaps you refer to it as “that little voice”. Regardless of the name, what you are feeling is you. Your body is giving you information, directions and answers. It is part of our primal instinct that, over time, we tuned out. It is truth. More importantly, it is your truth. We all want answers to the questions we have about our lives and a clearer understanding of our best choices. Whether we talk with friends, family or a therapist, visit a psychic or card reader, what we are seeking is a deeper perspective, and confirmation of what we believe. We want insight into our relationships and career; guidance for the challenges and changes we face. We seek advice from outside sources, and while these sources are valid, the clarity we desire is speaking to us all the
time. As an intuitive, I have been fortunate to be aware of my heightened intuition for as long as I can remember. Even as a child, I had a deeper understanding of what was going on around me. I had no idea how I gained this understanding; I just knew, and that the “knowing” felt differently when it came through my physical body than when I sensed it through my emotions or in my mind. The words “intuition” or “inner voice” were unknown to me then, but that’s what it was—intuition speaking through my body. As an adult, I learned about intuition, the different ways that it worked and how intuition communicated to me in a tangible way. Once I began my journey of personal growth, my intuition spoke more loudly and more clearly. I discovered how that inner voice would manifest physically, how my body would signal the information. I learned to read those intuitional signals and interpret their meanings. Now, I clearly understand the language of my inner voice and how I am best able to work with my intuition. I listen to my intuition daily and, as a result, I have more success, more happiness, and make choices that lead to more desired outcomes. Of course, there I times when I fail to listen; I am human, too. When I don’t listen to the signals my intuition is sending, I can tell you I don’t like the outcome nearly as much. Those experiences
reinforce what I inherently know: It’s always best to follow my instincts. Life is made up of a series of choices, and we make these choices minute-by-minute. Sometimes, those choices lead us to success. Other times, we may end up disappointed. The great thing is that, with our choices, we have the opportunity to learn what leads us to happier outcomes. We know it. We feel it. And by following the signals our bodies give us, we are guided to make better choices. It’s understandable that we might be reluctant to follow our intuition. This reluctance may be due to the fear of the unknown. The unknown can be scary. It can be filled with what-ifs and worry. Going with what you know, staying with who you know, or remaining in the same place may feel safe, or at least it’s predictable. To an extent, the familiar can make us feel like we are in control. Fear can be a strong motivator to keep you where you are, but that’s not always in your best interest. It is important to let ourselves grow, change and evolve so our lives can expand, allowing us to reach our truest potential. Intuition may guide you to areas outside of your comfort zone—away from what you know—so you may prefer to ignore that inner voice. However, if you find the courage to listen and trust that guidance, opportunities will appear, goals will be attained, and your confidence will flourish.
Following your intuition is like being handed a map that will show you the way to the most desirable path, because your intuition provides all the information and insight you need to make the choices that will lead you to success. Take a moment to reflect on the times when you have listened to that insight. I have a feeling you might be smiling right now. It feels good to follow what you know is true. If you did make a “wrong turn”, think of it as a lesson rather than a mistake. Ask yourself if you might have heard a whisper from your inner voice guiding you to another direction, or if your body was encouraging you to make a different decision. Chances are, you were given a signal that you didn’t fully understand. That was your intuition— your truth—calling out to you. This book will help you to better understand and hear that guidance. This book will explain the ways intuition communicates, and how that communication provides insight and clarity. You will be able to navigate your way to what you most desire—be it success, love, happiness, inner peace or all of the above! You’ll gain the ability to be more proactive and less reactive, bring more balance into your life and remove much of the stress. Perhaps you are someone who is already aware of your tangible intuition. This book will help you gain deeper clarity and hone your natural skills.
If following your intuition is new to you, ease yourself into it. Be patient. Just like starting a new form of exercise, it will take time to build this muscle. Start small at first, and let your intuition guide you with less significant things. As you come to understand how intuition speaks to you, you will become more comfortable using it to make bigger life decisions. Just to be clear, this isn’t about changing your personal beliefs or adopting a new religion. I might use terminology that is a little “out there” for some, but those are just words. Feel free to ignore them, or replace them with what you feel is more fitting. For the record, I’m not what you may assume an intuitive to be. You will never catch me in a pair of Birkenstocks or wearing a long, flowy dress (not that there is anything wrong with that); I prefer a nice pair of jeans and stilettos. I come from a conservative family, so I understand if this feels a little strange at first. Stick with it. You’ve picked up this book, or were given it, for a reason. As you might have noticed, this is also a workbook, and it is rather short. That’s because this is a simple process. I skipped much of the philosophy and went right to the practice of learning how to read your intuitive signs. As you start to feel those signals and understand the information your body is sending you, you will enjoy the empowerment that comes from listening to your intuition. I have also included a section in each chapter where you can reflect, answer
questions, make notes, and do exercises that will help you hone your intuitive skills. Throughout the book, I have included some of my personal experiences, as well as experiences of others, to demonstrate how intuition speaks to each of us in different ways. One of the keys to understanding how your intuition speaks to you is to be aware of your bodyâ€™s unique response. Keep this workbook with you, or use another journal, to take notes on your experiences. Soon, you will begin to see patterns emerge. And you will likely be surprised how familiar that tangible intuition is. How do you feel? Is your body telling you youâ€™re ready to learn about your intuition? Great! Here we go!
