Any decision you make, if it comes from your mind through rumination, rationalization, or pure logic, you're likely bypassing your Inner Authority.
Who is this Inner Authority biotch? She's your gut instinct, your intuition, the deep knowing beyond the conscious mind.
We all receive these messages from whom you might call your "Authentic Self", but we don't necessarily all receive it in the same way.
You might get the answer right away as a deep knowing, for others it takes some time to process and the answers come later.
For many it's a physical sensation, for others it's just a clear understanding.
See blog Developing Your Intuition,
The connection from that deep place of knowing and the conscious mind is already there; you just need to clear and strengthen it.
See blog Get Down With Your Divine Self for tips on this.
This also takes a level of trust. Trust in yourself, don't second guess, even if it doesn't make logical sense.
This, of course, translates into all areas of your life - career, family, health, and it has to do with boundaries, people pleasing and chronically putting the needs of others first.
When you trust others above yourself, you're essentially giving your power away (to your kids, partner, job, etc.).
I talked about this over on IG earlier this week (watch at @integrativewellnessjourneys), we have to shift from the mindset of right/wrong.
What's right for you might be wrong for someone else, not make sense to someone else.
Just because it's YOUR truth, doesn't mean it's theirs. They are not wrong just as you are not.
Naturally, we need compassion. Forgive, release judgement, process anger and fear.
I invite you to check in right now. On a scale of 1-10, how aligned to you feel to your Inner Authority?
How often do you listen vs. talk yourself out of it?
Deep connection to your Authentic Self/Inner Authority is one of the many benefits that my clients are experiencing in my programs. If you want to learn more, I invite you to schedule a session.
