Intuition is Your Superpower

Ep: 246

Did you know there’s a gift we’ve all been given? 

It tells us right from wrong, guides good decision-making, and helps us find purpose and meaning in our lives.

It’s the power of your intuition, and we’re all born with it. 

But too often, we ignore it.

Today on The Bridge to Fulfillment®, Blake reveals why we tend to ignore this powerful compass. Rather than let other people and false beliefs shape the direction of your life, it’s time to tap into your intuitive superpower.

In this episode, you’ll learn what it feels like when your body is trying to send you a message about a person, a choice, or a direction in your life. You’ll hear why most of us tend to ignore these often physical clues in favor of someone else’s opinions or advice. You’ll start to recognize the constant tug-of-war going on between your physical body and your brain so that you can begin to pay attention to the lessons life is presenting for your benefit.

Are you ready to listen to your body and start trusting yourself?

Hello, and welcome back to another episode of The Bridge to Fulfillment®. Today, I just wanted to share a few thoughts about the power of your intuition and learning how to trust and tap into it. Here’s what I see to be the truth over and over and over again. Our body never lies when you learn how to listen to the messages that you’re being given, whether that is being around somebody where you feel a tightness or uncomfortableness, whether that is meeting somebody in initially immediately liking them. Or whether that is this gut instinct, that this thing is the right thing to do. Even if you don’t have the facts that tell you. When you begin to learn to trust that, life in many ways gets infinitely easier.

It strips away the false beliefs that society has given us. That tells us that we have to have data and facts for everything. It enables you to track tap into true wisdom, true wisdom that enables you to trust yourself. And one of the things I have found to be most critical to leading a successful and fulfilling life is the ability to trust and really own who you are. To know that you can make the right decisions for yourself without having to rely on someone else’s perspective or without second guessing yourself or without overriding your perspective with someone else’s. Now that’s not to say that we don’t have blind spots. We all do. But look for the people in your life, who will help you learn how to trust yourself, as opposed to being reliant on them. Because we’ve all been gifted the beauty and the gift of intuition.

Some of us over many years or decades stops listening. And if that’s you, that’s okay. It’s an opportunity to slow down, give yourself some space, and just start processing what are you feeling either emotionally or in your body. For those who feel more tapped into their intuition, it’s an opportunity to build strength in that way. Because here’s what I see constantly to be true. The body never lies, and your inner compass will always show you the way. The challenge is, our brain, our brain will look to rationalize, our brain will look to avoid, our brain will only want to see what it feels safe to see. And so if you have belief systems that you must do things a certain way, you must interact this way or something bad will happen to you, you must stay in this job, or this relationship. Your brain will actively fight what your body and your emotions are telling you. And until you get still enough, until you slow down enough to listen, you won’t hear it.

But here’s the beautiful gift. Life is always working for you. Every single person, circumstance, moment of your day, is there to teach you, is there to help guide you towards growth and learning and purpose. It’s just often we misunderstand it. Often we’re ignoring those very messages and intuition we’re being given as gifts, are often we’re allowing our brains to tell us a story. And those stories are almost always negative. They’re almost always at something’s happening to us instead of for us. They’re almost always doubting or second guessing ourselves, worrying that we won’t be successful, and feel like maybe somebody else knows better than we do.

And so as we talk about intuition today, I want to challenge you, how often do you listen to yours? What way does your intuition talk to you? And how can you the next time you’re faced with a crossroads, a challenge, and opportunity? How can you slow down enough to get still, and listen? Until next time, have a great week.
