Since the New Pathway To Healing theme is “Dare To Dream” this month, I thought it would be helpful if this week’s posts were focused more on how to develop your ability to see, hear, touch or intuit your dream!
The phrase “trust your instincts” sounds so simple doesn’t it? People use these phrases all the time. “Just go with your gut. Follow your instincts.” I know that when I am counseling or coaching clients I often ask them to refer to the instincts that are pulling them to a certain situation or person.
Often times they look at me with bewilderment when I ask this question. They have become so shut down to others out of fear, defensiveness or a need to protect themselves, that they have unfortunately become shut down to what their inner voice is telling them as well. So is it really that easy to hear what your instincts are telling you?
It is not necessarily easy or hard. It becomes a skill just like any other skill that you’ve learned to practice daily. These become the key words: learned skill and practice daily. Think of anything else that you’ve learned to do in your life. First you had to learn it through study, reading, having a teacher, following a mentor, etc., and then you had to practice it often to become good at it.
Following your instincts is no different. Having some coaching, journaling and sitting within the silence or in nature can help you hear your inner voice. Then deciding to trust what you are hearing and practicing it daily becomes the next steps to making the saying “follow your instincts” as easy as you brushing your teeth every day!
Sit within the silence for a few minutes now. What is the message you hear? It may be one word, a feeling, a visual picture. See the meaning it has for you and trust it.
Now, come up with a behavior to match the message or feeling you received. Decide how to implement it this week and follow it through!
One of your dreams or desires has now finally been heard AND it is grateful!! Continue this practice of listening and ATTENDING to what you hear and your dreams will be heard more clearly than they ever have before!!
This will serve you well in this lifetime!
