One of the main reasons I am such an advocate of meditation is because of the effect it has on intuition. For those of us, who are looking to build their intuition, or connect better with our gut, meditation is one of the most powerful tools I have found. In this blog post, I’ll answer your questions about meditation and its relation to intuition.
Why does Intuition Matter?
So many of us spend way too much of our time listening to the outside voices in our life, like our parents, society, and the world. Instead of listening to our inner self, our true self, and our authentic self, we listen to everyone else. If all of us spent less time listening to the outside world, and actually listening to what we truly want, we would be living a more fulfilling life.
For the longest time, I heard my intuition tell me what I should be doing with my life. But my parents told me to take another path. I listened to them at first, because it felt like the ‘right’ thing to do. I wanted to be a good daughter.
But constantly, that voice inside my heart, my intuition kept at me, telling me I was on the wrong path. My intuition was adamant that I should change my path. The thing about our intuition is that if at first we don’t listen to it, the voice gets stronger and stronger, but eventually, if we don’t listen to it, it stops talking to us altogether. Luckily enough, my intuition kept bugging me, and telling me to try a different path.
For ten whole years, it told me I was on the wrong path. Everything I did just didn’t feel right, because it wasn’t the path for me. When we are living on the right path, everything falls into place seamlessly. When we are living the wrong path, everything seems stilted, suffocating, and slow-moving. (more…)
