With so much happening in the world, we tend to move along with it and find ourselves lost and disconnected. We fail to care more and appreciate the things around us. We forget to slow down and take the beauty of life in. As a result, our minds harbor this inner voice that is just not friendly and is not doing good to us. All of these things actually have a lot to do with our intuition and the vibration that comes with it. Know how you can transform your lives better in order to access your inner awareness.

Intuition And How To Use It
I was having a little chat on Messenger with some of my favorite friends and the word intuition came up. Most people are very familiar with intuition. In fact, those of you that are women have a sense of connectedness with their children and with other things. Women seem to be a little more intuitive by nature than men. I know that’s not across the board, so keep breathing. Women usually have a more open right brain area. The right brain is where we are very artistic and move from an emotional or feeling state. We are utilizing things that are not quite as structured compared to some people that are very related to their left brain. The left brain is more logical, structured and makes sense. That means that we are in a place where we’ve got our right brain and left brain. Women are frequently more right-brained. They are characteristically in a place where they are more intuitive.
Being intuitive means that you get a feeling in your body. You sense that something’s going to happen, like a premonition. You get a feeling about something or someone. For other people, it’s a matter of suddenly having this thought come into their mind and it seems to come out of nowhere, but they have an awareness of something going on. Intuition can be developed and is developed easily when you are in a place where you are feeling a little bit more connected and have a higher vibration and when you’re in a good mood and in the zone. Because when you’re in that place, your vibration is higher and when you’re down and out, everything seems to slow down. Intuition is a place that comes from a higher level of awareness. It’s so high that it’s beyond your mind because it’s not something that you think about. It’s something that seems to flow through.Intuition is accessing that inner awareness. Click To Tweet
We can develop that by increasing our vibration. We can increase it by being in a more positive state of mind and going more deeply into ourselves. When we do that, we find that it is a quieter place and all of the outer world rhetoric quiets down. When that occurs, we’re able to hear things that are naturally going on, but we sometimes are not able to care because we’re so inundated with so much data and things that going on in our lives that we don’t have time to actually listen on a deeper level. When we allow ourselves to quiet down, slow down, be a lot more inward with our thoughts, and to listen more rather than to speak and trying to control our lives, we are in a place where we can hear that inner voice.
We know we all have this inner voice. We have this thing going on that’s over here, but that’s not the real inner voice because this one is saying, “You’re not allowed to do that. You can’t do that. How come you’re so difficult? How come you’re so ugly?” The mind comes up with this inner voice that is very unkind to us in a very big way and we usually listen to that inner voice and we believe it. Can you imagine that we believed this voice? Where do you think that voice came from? That voice comes from things that we heard when we were younger. Our parents, friends and people that are in a bad mood, they dumped stuff on us. When we’re little and don’t know any better, we think it’s true.
When we had our retreat, Out with the Pain, In with the Joy, there was someone there that shared that they had been told some things that were difficult. Being a child, we listened to that. The whole life of this person was impacted by that statement that she wasn’t enough or she wasn’t good enough or pretty enough or whatever those things are that we hear. When we’re a child and we hear that, we take it as law because we don’t have anything else to compare to. We go around thinking that what we hear is true and that lowers our vibration. It makes us feel less than when we are feeling connected, loving and caring about ourselves. All of these things have a lot to do with our intuition, that internal knowing, that part of us that can make a difference in our decision-making process. Most of the time the majority of people will think, “I have to think this through. I’ve got to categorize my answers. I have to go into the Ben Franklin close.” For those in sales, that means you write all the pros and the cons of what’s going on and then you make a logical decision. That’s not what intuition is. Intuition is about having that sense of what it is that you are about to make a decision and about the way it feels in your body.
One of the things that you can do is notice how you feel in your body when you’re about to make a decision in any area of your life, whether it’s about where to go to dinner or to make a financial decision or what to do with your work or whatever it may be. It can be anything. Maybe it’s about what you’re going to eat. There’s a lot of people that I know that have a thing about food and when it comes to food, what do you know is going to improve and make you feel better than something else? That’s logical, but you also have a true sense of connection to what it is that you’re feeling and you can make decisions in any area of your life by quieting down and seeing how it feels. When you think of doing that as a yes for example, then you think, “Does this feel good? Does that feel lighter? Do I feel like this could work for me?” Or do you feel like, “This isn’t so great,” and you feel a heaviness? When we feel a heaviness, we are not in a state of connection to what’s happening now.
I want to interject here that when we have this sense of connection occur, we don’t necessarily mean that we won’t feel some apprehension or fear. When we’re using our intuition, many times we’ll go to a place where we’re being confronted with things that are scary. We’re used to living in our comfortable little box and many times intuition will say, “I know I need to do this.” I’ll give you an example. In this retreat that we did, we had somebody who hadn’t known about the retreat and somebody texted her about something else at midnight the night before it began. She didn’t know me and didn’t know what it was about. She didn’t know anything, but she had this gut feeling like, “I need to be there. I know that there’s something there for me.” At 12:15 AM, she signs up and shows up the next morning at 8:30 AM and totally blank and trusting. She was trusting that gut feeling, that intuition. That is powerful when we do that. She had an amazing weekend as she shared with me. She is now going to do some additional work because she realized that this was something that was working for her and perfect for her. When you are in a place where you are feeling like, “Should I do this? Should I not?” sit quietly with it for a moment and see how it feels. Do you feel lighter or do you feel heavier?
The other thing that occurs is that you can go internally and ask yourself. It doesn’t mean you’re going to be schizophrenic, it means that you have a part of you that has every answer that you could ever dream or hope of and it’s a very intelligent part of you. When you recognize this, you can start asking your mind. When you are connecting to that part of yourself that trusts itself, you are able to make a difference in your balance between your right and left brain. When you are using your intuition, you are trusting that place that allows you to know what’s next. You can go inside and start speaking to yourself and say, “I’m looking to have an answer to this,” and you can simply say, “What’s the best decision for me here?” Then be quiet and notice how you feel and what comes up for you. You can do that in any area of your life. You can do that with any question that comes up that you’re trying to decide about and say, “What’s the best decision for me right now?” Be with that, see how you feel and stay with it for a little bit.
Intuition is accessing that inner awareness and that part of you that intuitively knows what’s best for you. The other kind is the part that you’re just doing something. You come across something and this person that I shared, she came across something and said, “I know this is what’s important for me.” Most of the work that I do with most people come from a very deep connection point, which we can call intuition. I’ll get up in the morning and that’s when it flows for me. When I’m first up, it’s a good time to connect to that point. We’re much more blank. We don’t have all the rhetoric going on from the day.
We don’t have that left brain so engaged because remember, intuition is primarily coming from the right side, that more malleable place and doesn’t have the structure. It doesn’t have the dominance of logic to it necessarily. That person that came to the retreat, it wasn’t logical. She’d already paid for a class to go to on the first day of the retreat, and yet her intuition said, “I need to go here,” and there were several people at the retreat that were like that. They didn’t exactly know what they were getting into and didn’t know what they were going to learn, but they had a very strong sensation. Watch for things coming to you out of nowhere and notice if that’s something that works for you. Don’t think it, feel it.Gratitude is the way that you acquire more abundance. Click To Tweet
In the morning when your mind is quieter in general, right before you get up and when you’re a little bit in that off-space, especially before you go to sleep as well, I encourage you to be still and see what comes up for you. Maybe have a pen and paper next to your bedside. Whatever starts to run through you, intuitive guidance. It’s a part of you that has the ability to get the information for what it is that might be next for you and you can write that down. If you’ve noticed that once you’re up and around, you don’t connect to that deeper part because we start getting into our left brain. The other thing that happens is that for me, I’ll get up in the morning, I go into a deep state and I talk to what I call my “Genius Team.” If you want to know more about what that is, you can private message me and I’ll tell you. I noticed that I am quiet, and I’ll have a fluttery thought go through. The majority of the work that I do, the retreats that I create, the coaching that I do, the seminars that happened, and the things that I write, these come from a very deep intuitive place. It doesn’t come from logic. It comes from a place where it seemingly comes out of left field.
All of a sudden, I’ll be up there in the morning, I’ll be putting on my makeup or doing whatever and I had this thought. I have this great program called Swift To-Do List. Swift To-Do List is something that has an app for my phone and when that thought comes through, I click on my little green check mark, which is how the app looks and I will immediately speak into it what the thought was that I had. Much of my teaching comes from that intuitive place, that place beyond my mind. I don’t go read it out of a book and then tell somebody about it. It comes from beyond where my mind knows to go. Swift To-Do is a paid to-do list. It’s very powerful. I don’t get paid for saying this and I’m telling one of the things that I want to share. There are other things like Todoist, which is another program that you can put your to-do things and all of that. I don’t know if there’s something that you can speak into, it’s more of a writing thing. At any rate, that’s one way that I capture. For those of you that have talked on your phone, you can talk it in or you can tell Siri to remember this or whatever.
The bottom line is many times intuition flitters in and out very quickly. You don’t remember it so quickly because it’s a very high vibration. It’s a thought that you don’t think most of the time or it’s not something you’ve been dwelling on. When you have those thoughts, write them down. Keep a pen and paper by your bedside so you can allow yourself to write these things down when they come to you intuitively. If you spent a few moments every day before you got up, you could ask yourself a question like, “What’s the most awesome thing that can happen for me, my relationship, business, children, health and money?” Allow yourself to make that rhetorical question. I do this every morning and you may find that certain things show up out of seemingly nowhere.
That’s your intuitive nature showing you what it is that can be supportive for you. I want to support you and tap into what’s in a deeper place inside of yourself than what it is that you might normally be doing using your left brain. When you do that, you’ll find that every area of your life will start to open up. The higher you keep your vibration, meaning that whether you’re looking at the glass half empty or half full, it’s going to make a very significant difference. There are always things going on in our lives that we can have difficulty with. They can look like struggles, difficulties or, “I don’t know which one to pick,” but you can move yourself to a position where you can be still inside yourself and look at what’s great about this. If you can’t see it at that moment, you can ask yourself, “What’s great about this that I haven’t seen yet?”
When you start to move away from the negativity and into the gratitude, then everything would change for you because gratitude is a very high vibration. When you do that, that gratitude is going to increase your level of connection, feeling good, and making things be different in your life because gratitude is the way that you acquire more abundance. If you would like to have more abundance in your life, start giving thanks to every single thing you have, every single penny, and thought, the greatness that has already gone on in your life, what it is that is forthcoming, and what’s happening right now. If you do not, you’re refusing to receive. What’s the value of us refusing to receive? There’s no value in that.
Gratitude is very great and very good to overcome your pain. When you are doing the gratitude thing, you put your focus on what it is that’s working in your life, even when it seems like everything isn’t working. I know it’s hard sometimes but start your day with five things that you are incredibly grateful for. The fact that you were upright might be one of them. Another one could be something as simple as, “I have a roof over my head, I’ve got food and water, I’m warm.” You can start with basics if you’re having a tough time and you can’t figure out what’s great, but there are always a million things. What you can do is switch your focus to what’s great happening right now in your life. Live in gratitude because it will expand everything for you.
When you’re living in that gratitude, you will find that abundance increases tremendously in every area of your life. When you’re in gratitude, you are feeling better, raising your vibration, and it helps you have a greater sense of intuition or an inner knowing of certain things that will help you go forward with what it is that you want. Your decisions will be easier to make because you’re not making them from your left brain, which is usually created from your fears and past experiences where people told you things. When we do that, we’re not going to make a decision that might be in our best interest. We’re going to make a decision based on, “How can I stay out of being hurt here?” Humans are like that and when we recognize that, we stop that and we start doing what it is that we’ll move our energy away from the things that we’re afraid of. You can’t be in fear if you’re in gratitude. You can’t be in fear if you’re allowing your intuition to be moving by. You cannot allow the intuition to come through if you’re paralyzed about every single decision that needs to be made or because you’re afraid something in the future is going to occur.You can’t be in fear if you’re in gratitude. You can’t be in fear if you’re allowing your intuition to be moving by. Click To Tweet
Remember that fear is rarely in the moment, I would say it’s not in the moment ever. It’s about what happened in the past or what might happen now or in the future. It’s about what you think might occur, but in reality, when you’re here in this moment and you’re in a life-threatening situation, you’re not in fear of that either. You are in the present moment. Let’s say somebody is coming after you, book it. You’re out of here because you don’t have time to be afraid, you’re just moving and you’re not thinking. The present moment is a powerful key to increasing your intuition. These are things that you can do. When we are all living in a greater state of gratitude and using our intuition to make powerful change and decisions in our life then our abundance increases in our relationships, money, health, and everything. It’s all about the energy of all of those things which makes the difference. I’ve appreciated being here with you. I’m making this decision and commitment that I’m going to do a Facebook Live every day. If you haven’t seen them, be sure to click the notification to know when I’m on.
