It is interesting to note the tendency we have to constantly seek reassurance that our intentions are ‘right’. Such oft asked questions as: “Am I on the right path?” or “Which direction should I take?” are indications of indecisiveness and uncertainty.
When did we become so disempowered in our own decision making ability? Why do we believe that other people actually know more about our direction and life choices than we do?
Unfortunately I believe that we, as a society, have become so accustomed to believing that experts have the correct answers to all of life’s issues and problems. We seek the expert knowledge of attorneys, doctors, dentists, therapists, psychics, etc to just about every concern that arises – often without even checking in with our inner wisdom. We’ve come to believe that we do not know what is in our best interests, and therefore hand over decision-making responsibility to authority figures.
Ultimately this leads to a complete level of disempowerment. Every decision that needs to be made has the potential to become a huge exercise in questioning, doubting, finding the pros and cons etc. which also has the potential to increase anxiety levels and fear – and possibly result in the manifestation of physical health issues.
A simple way of determining whether or not a certain course of action is to be taken is to get a sense of what your feelings are instead of questioning endlessly. We are all given intuitive abilities for good reason – to guide us through this maze of life’s challenges and experiences.
The human body is a wonderful barometer of what your deeper feelings are on practically every issue and subject. To determine if your body likes something, or feels a certain direction is desired, merely ask your body to ‘show’ you via feeling sensations its positive response. Then do the same as you direct it to give you its indicator feeling to negative responses. Once you have an awareness of your body’s natural response mechanisms then it’s merely a matter of responding according to its responses in the numerous life situations that arise.
The more you listen to your body’s response to situations and issues the clearer you become. Over time you will intuitively know simple things like whether or not a physical discomfort really requires a visit to the doctor or whether you have a natural remedy available that will do the job perfect – or whether it is really in your best interest to go to the gym despite the fact that you feel exhausted.
There are so many instances where your body communicates its needs clearly and strongly. By taking the time to learn the body’s responses you are strengthening your intuitive ability and over time you will ‘know’ immediately what is in your best interests. Then you will realize that you do indeed know best!
