Do You Trust Your Intuition?

Two weeks ago I had the reoccuring inner nudge that sounded like this: “I want to get in my pajamas and watch a movie. Snuggle up. Rest. Enjoy this season.” Of which my logical, RESPONSIBLE mind, said, “I can’t do that. It’s 3:00 in the afternoon and I have STUFF to do. Lots of work and catch up. Maybe later in the month.”

The INNER NUDGE for this request came three times within three days.

Although that inner kid or my highest self – whichever you call it – said YES, my logical mind or  the JUDGE as I call that voice said no. Too irresponsible. Stuff to do. I can rest later in the month. And so on.

So what happened? About a week later (last week) I started developing a sore throat and a nasty cold. And then guess what happened? I had to rest. And I ended up in my pajamas and watching movies. 🙂

Wouldn’t it have been easier for me to trust my INNER NUDGES (intuition) and simply honored what my body was saying I needed in the first place?

Yes, of course. I am reminded once again to trust and have faith in my inner nudges, knowing that resting and playing and JOY are the keys to success and achievement. To trust, versus deny, my inner nudges, promptings, and impressions even if they don’t make “sense”.

What is your INNER NUDGE telling you to do?

    Wow, Tiffany! That’s soooo true! Yesterday I had a similar experience. I was crazy-stressed about an event I was in charge of later that evening; my stomach was extremely sick & I was miserable. However, I spent most of the day trying to push through & act in spite of. By 3pm, though, I realized that I was in no position to have a good event with how awful I was feeling and had to do something different. My intuition said, “take a bath with some essential oils and listen to Eckhart Tolle.” My “judge” (as you call it – love that!) thought it would be ridiculous to take a bath at 3pm when my kids were up and I had to leave soon. Luckily, though, I listened to my intuition and that bath changed my entire day. I felt amazing after and was completely peaceful and felt so much better.

    Thank you for this post today to help me understand more of what happened yesterday. You helped me understand that I need to validate that “inner nudge” more often. xoxo
