On a scale of 1-10, how much do you trust yourself? Are you always listening to your intuition? Or are you failing yourself miserably, because you choose to down play those inner thoughts and feelings?
Each of us has one. An inner voice that speaks to you quite frequently. You know the voice. The one voice that connects us to the universe. The voice that try’s to help assist us with making rational and sound decisions. The voice that becomes a feeling of flutter within our gut. Which notifies us on whether or not our actions, paired with our thoughts are moving in the right direction.
I am sure you’ve felt it. We all have. But the issue isn’t whether you have felt it or not. The issue is what action do you take once that indicator goes off and forces you to pay attention? If you even pay attention at all. Unfortunately, often times when that inner voice of peace, reason and safety speaks to us, we tend to go against it.
On many occasions we will and have second guessed that feeling. By disregarding it and diminishing those feelings into nothing. Why? Is it because we are not sure and secure with what we are actually feeling? But how could this be? I mean shouldn’t we have enough faith in self? And if we don’t, then who can we have faith in to guide us through tough situations, and onto the right path?
In most situations, we may not have enough faith to trust in self, but we will be extremely trusting within someone else. So trusting that we allow them to override our own instincts. Which just sounds insane when you think about it. How can you distrust your thoughts, but relay on someone else’s?
For instance when you are dating someone and you get the feeling that things just aren’t right. And instead of acknowledging what you are feeling. You allow that other person to talk you out of your own feelings. So you end up putting all of your trust and faith in that person. Only to be let down and disappointed later on down the line.
Why do we do that to ourselves? It’s like self sabatoge. That voice is present for a reason. It is our very own alarming system. That is set in place to help us avoid danger, weight our options, and make reasonable and rationale decisions. Unfortunately we don’t utilize it enough, and it just wastes away.
But the more you pay attention, the more present that alarm will be. Which will aide you in avoiding so much pain, grief, and heart ache. All we need to do is invest in self more, by being more solid and trusting in our own decision making skills.
I mean what do you have to lose? Other than increasing your chances to be more in tune with self.
And that my dear doesn’t sound like a bad thing after all.
