A common theme I’ve been running into lately is Trust. Or more specifically the lack of trust we have in ourselves and our intuition. I am constantly asking women if they feel they’re intuitive. About 50% say yes. Out of that 50%, only about 10% say they TRUST their intuition on a daily basis.
I used to be surprised by those numbers, that is until I remembered that less than 10 years ago I didn’t think I was intuitive either. How could I trust something I didn’t know I had?
The thing is, we are ALL intuitive. Every single one of us. I talk more about this in this podcast episode here. We all have the ability to be intuitive, it’s not some special club that only certain people get accepted into.
Intuition is just like a muscle, you have to work on it to tone it (except it’s way more fun to exercise it!). There are plenty of exercises you can do to develop your intuition. In fact, I created a “Revive Your Intuition Workbook”, which you can grab here. This workbook has 20+ pages and helps you to not only understand the clairs (intuitive abilities) but also provides you with over 5 easy, step by step exercises you can rely on to develop them. And as a special bonus, you can also track your progress and deepen your connection to self and to your Spirit team by using the journal prompts that are included.
Literally anyone on this planet can say they’re intuitive, but to confidently say they TRUST and RELY on it every single day? That’s pretty special. It’s so easy to get caught up in the day to day, to push out the intuitive nudges you receive because they’re not considered “logical”.
One thing that I truly believe Coronavirus has done, is it’s given us the ability to really tune into ourselves. After so much time in self isolation, I will truly be blown away if it did not provide anyone with the quiet and time needed to self-reflect. And what happens when we self-reflect? We hear our inner voice.
That inner voice is your intuition.
Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.
4 Ways To Trust Yourself
Okay so I think it’s safe to say that developing your intuition is by far the best way to start trusting yourself. But let’s say you’re not there yet, or maybe you’re not sold on this whole intuition thing. (Hey, did you know Claircognizance is most likely to be your most dominant clair if you’re an analytical / logical thinker?).
Keep reading for the suggestions I have to help you trust yourself other than developing your intuition.
1. Enjoy Alone Time
Being alone helps you to develop self-awareness. It can be stressful to be in social settings when you don’t trust yourself because you’re constantly in a state of fear and distrust. If you are someone who tends to worry if you’ve done or said something wrong in a group of friends or co-workers, then you know exactly what I mean. You don’t have any faith in your own words, behaviour, or even yourself! That’s really no way to live, love. If you’re reading this right now, you deserve to be an empowered powerful woman who can walk into any room or setting and be completely confident in herself, her actions and her words.
Take the time to self-reflect on a regular basis and you’ll become that woman sooner than you think
2. Push Yourself
Get out of your comfort zone. I know this probably isn’t what you want to hear but I promise it works. When you push yourself out of your comfort zone you’re telling yourself that even though you’re afraid, you trust yourself to get to the other side. A lot of the times it’s not the outside factors that are holding us back, it’s ourselves. If you continue to limit yourself, you’ll never step into the brilliant, confident badass chick I know you can be. Push yourself love, you’ll be trusting yourself in no time.
3. Give it Time.
I know I know, I cringe just writing that, but it’s true! We’ve gotten into this habit of wanting things to happen instantly. Life doesn’t work that way. You can’t go on a diet and lose 20 pounds overnight, you’re not going to snap your fingers and suddenly start trusting yourself. Trusting yourself will take time, but it’s not going to take as long as you think it will. Commit to developing your trust in yourself and it will happen. Once you’ve made the decision (and stick to it) the Universe will support you in every way it possibly can.
This somewhat ties into suggestion #3 but Tell yourself this is what you’re going to do and stick to it. Have you ever noticed that if you’re nervous about something (like a work presentation) if
a) a co-worker you like and trust tells you you’re going to do amazing or
b) you remind yourself that you totally got this or
That you feel 100x better walking into that presentation? The energy has been put out there. You decided it was true, you owned it and you rocked it.
The same goes for trusting yourself. Make a commitment to yourself that this is something you’re going to work on every single day, and watch your trust in yourself soar.
Having an off day? Try repeating this mantra to yourself:
I trust in myself 100%. Nothing and no one will get in my way. I am a queen! I’m confident, I know and I trust myself. My intuition will never steer me wrong. I got this!
Personally, I think developing your intuition makes ALL of the suggestions above SO MUCH EASIER! And honestly, things are only as hard as you believe they are (I know, Cringing again). I believe with every fiber of my being that our intuition is linked to, well, everything! When we develop and trust our intuition, we are more self-aware & confident. It encourages us to work on ourselves and assess what is and what isn’t working. Developing our intuition is what propels us forward to find and live our soul purpose.
