‘The intuitive mind is a sacred gift, and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift.’ – Albert Einstein.
Allow me to share with you a brief personal story…
Back in December 2021, I started feeling a strong calling to take a break. I had 3 months of hard work behind me and felt saturated from my professional life. So I decided to take a few days off between Christmas and new year’s eve. It went well; I recovered and rested a little. But by mid-January, I could feel that my body and mind needed much more rest. I did not want to believe it; no matter how strong my intuition was to take a proper break, I kept going. I told myself that I recently took a few days off, which should be enough. The reality is that I was worried about what could have happened to my business if I were to disappear for a longer time.
I was choosing to follow my fear rather than my intuition.
Time went by, and by February, I was feeling very demotivated. I had lost most of my inspiration and good vibe about my mission in life, helping people master their mind and create their dream life. Still, I did not act. I kept going travelling and working at the same time, telling myself it was transient. It was not. I kept having mood swings, episodes of sadness, and low motivation… until I decided that I was unwilling to feel that way any longer.
I wanted to reconnect with my true self and recover my high spirit more than keep my business going. So, together with my partner, we decided to completely disconnect for 5 weeks and go to the Himalayas to relax, rest and recover.
It was bliss. It felt great. It was the right thing to do. It was what my intuition was telling me to do for months. And once back, I cannot explain how motivated, inspired and content I was to go back into serving people and growing my business. I haven’t felt that way for over six months.
As soon as I started working again, things flowed like never before; potential clients arrived to me from unexpected sources, my creativity was at an all-time high, and I channelled it to bring to life a few projects I had been postponing for months. I was infecting people with my positive energy, which allowed me to create my highest monthly income ever.
Through six months of low motivation and mood swings, I learned the hard way that when my intuition speaks to me, I should listen. Ignoring it, in the long run, will only bring suffering. Intuition is a higher intelligence that knows exactly what is best for us. Even when our logic cannot explain it.
Eventually, by observing it, I have created irrefutable evidence that the best I can do in life is to follow it unconditionally. I want to trust it; I choose to trust it.
Where are you currently not listening to your intuition?
Where are you saying no to an opportunity you know could greatly benefit you?
