How Often Do You Take the Advice of Other People Over Your Own?

There are hundreds of ways to be mentally and physically present in your life. And dozens of places you can go to become enlightened, inspired, and detox-free. Yet, instead of searching for more things to do or more places to go for knowledge, wisdom, and information, how differently do you believe your life would look if you trusted your intuition more?

Asha Tarry, Life Coach

The brilliance of believing what you innately know, even when you can’t explain it is a gift of life and living in the present moments of your life. Respecting your internal navigation system will remind you that most times the answers to the questions you may ask lies within you. Though, lifestyle gurus, intuits, and other professional advisors are awesome at what they do, you too, can become extraordinary at trusting your gut.

Some of my favorite ways to listen to my intuition are:

      1. Sitting or walking quietly at the beginning or end of my day

      2. Journaling my thoughts and feelings once or twice a week

      3. Doing a body scan throughout the day

      4. Spending time alone with myself which allows me to become acquainted with my mind and body

All of this may not seem as powerful as talking to a therapist, or a trusted friend, or taking a class that will help you manifest your wildest dreams in 30 days, but with practice, these simple techniques are transformative.

While working on your new year’s resolutions, it’s just as important to consider that doing less may return rewards to your INS (internal navigation system) as incredibly productive and valuable as tasking yourself with something important you want to learn. Contradictory to what you may have heard, I’ve seen the positive results of turning down the dial.

What’s going on in your life right now that you need clarity on? Write down what you want to know, then intentionally practice setting 10 minutes of quiet time aside in the morning (preferably) or at the end of your day. Return to this practice again for 7 days (sometimes longer depending on how full your mind typically is) and see what comes up. Get ready to witness your inner awareness!
