trusting your gut

I looked at an office space in San Francisco the other day which was very lovely, affordable and in the right neighborhood. Yet I felt absolutely no energy around it in my heart so I passed on it. The experience made me aware of how much I have now come to trust my gut instincts to navigate through life. At the same time it seems that I have turned a corner where I no longer keep making the same mistakes over and over again. What a concept!

I’m experiencing that the more tuned in I am to my intuitive information, the more abundant I see it flowing through my life. This week I have a significant publicity event for my book, Unleashing Your Soul on Martha Stewart Living Radio (see article wrestling with fear of success). As I anticipate it now, I very much sense that there is some male divine energy partnering with me on this. It is like the feeling of being the front person with at least two other two guys supporting me on the side to make sure I reach my goals. While I do think there is something more to their involvement, at the very least lies the message that everything is going to be okay.

I share this because I think that is how intuition and divine wisdom often show up. It’s not through pats on our shoulders, email or carefully constructed voice mail. Rather it is through images and feelings that we get. We simply need to pay attention to this kind of stuff and give it credibility. It really does contain our most valuable guidance.

  1. I need coaching about a relationship I have had for the last 17 years. An on off friendship, and though we are friends after dating when we were younger. When things are going the way I want them to, I am happy and when they arent I am in despair cause I make it mean Im not worth it and no matter how much logic and knoweledge I have about the truth, it makes no difference to my feelings when they happen, I dread things to happen sometimes and wonder why I keep getting in my own way when thtings start to go in the direction I pray they will go. I know the power of intention and the power of prayer, ane the laws of the universe…why do I dread something will go wrong or get yucky feelings and fear something will go opposite of what I would like? It is getting in the way of consistency and focus and the art of allowing. What is the meaning behind this? Is it that I had a great family when I was little and then my parents divorced and I was sad for many years around relationship and loss…Im confused and bewildered…. Please give me a heads up. What are these gut feelings…should I let them run me when they are based on fears and what if?

  2. Ginie,

    It sounds like you are very much in tune with your gut feelings. This doesn’t mean that you are getting in your own way or that they are based on fears. Gut feelings are the way in which your inner wisdom communicates with you. The best thing you can do is look honestly at what you are feeling and then trust those feelings, even if they are not responding in the way that you want them to.

    I know what it is like to want a relationship to go in the direction that you want it to. You can set all the intention, yet if it is not the right relationship for you, it’s just not going to flow. There is a lot of peace to be found in placing your trust in the belief that the universe knows better than you do about what is best for you. This is where allowing comes in. Always look at what is flowing smoothly as leading you in the right direction. Struggles are usually signs that we are not going with the flow.

    My advice is to give yourself total credibility for your ability to recognize and trust your feelings. Feelings are messages of the heart and the signs that we should always look to follow as our truth.

    Warm blessings to you,
