Gut Feelings: Why Your Intuition Knows Best

Updated: 7 days ago

"Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." -Steve Jobs

"Follow your instincts. That's where true wisdom manifests itself." -Oprah Winfrey

Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer

So often we think that the world and the way it works is so complicated. But, truthfully, it is just the opposite... it’s really quite simple. We just need to understand how it works and use that knowledge to our advantage. When we listen to our gut, our intuition, we are being guided by our heart to make the best decisions for ourselves in the present moment as we are living it.

When we live from our heart and listen to that voice or the "knowing" in our gut, everything becomes so much simpler.

Life in the moment is meant to be lived to the fullest. When we focus on expanding the love in our heart consistently we will be lead to live life more easily and in the flow. When each experience of your day is given your full attention with love and gratitude, it will blossom into your desired outcome. Now you are aligned with your true nature. In this moment you feel your power!

How does this happen?

Focus on listening to your intuition and allowing it to open fully. In a relaxed and calm way, you can develop this great gift of "knowing." When you go to your heart and find your calm, your intuition, that feeling in your gut, or the supportive voice in your mind will show you the way to achieving your desires. (If you would like some help listening to your heart, try my guided heart meditation at this link: Feel and listen to the messages that you receive. It is in the calm that you will find your path. It is there that you will have clarity in the decisions that you should make. Know that all of the answers are within you. You have everything you need to create the life of your dreams, everything required to move forward.

When you quiet your mind and focus on your heart, you allow your inner voice to flow. You will hear and feel the answers come forth from within you. Do not dismiss these thoughts and feelings or ignore these instincts. Feel safe in listening, because it is through these physical and emotional sensations that your guidance will come. It is in these feelings that you will know your truth. With faith and certainty, understand that these feelings and thoughts will only bring you peace and a sense of clarity. They can only come from a place of calm.

Action Steps:

1. Relax and calm yourself. When your body is relaxed and your mind is calm, information will flow to you easily. Something as simple as a calming shower, a walk in nature, or your morning drive may be the space where your mind is receptive. However, a structured approach is best for forming this most valuable habit and developing your intuitive muscle. Just set aside 15 minutes a day to go within. Get quiet and calm, and put your mind at ease with deep breathing or meditation. Be sure your shoulders are relaxed and let your breath guide you. Breathing love in and out or meditating with attention to expanding the love in your heart is the way.

2. Ask the questions. Ask yourself questions that you are seeking answers for. Ask mentally or out loud.

3. Listen to the guidance you receive. It comes to you in the form of gut feelings, goose bumps, repetitive sounds, and other physical sensations. These are messages from the depth of your soul, steering you with amazing insight. Trust what you feel, so that you can put the full energy of your convictions behind these feelings. With daily practice during quiet time, you will soon move through your day, tuned into the frequency of your sixth sense, receiving guidance all day long.

4. Trust your gut. As you believe in yourself more and more, you will move forward with confidence. You will reap great results. This process will yield the outcome of your desires, often in a way that is beyond your expectations. Imagine what it feels like to swim in a sea of your greatest dreams coming true! Now, as you move through your day, see a picture in your mind of what you desire. Feel love and gratitude... and you will see these "dreams" become reality. Do this repetitively throughout your day and you will experience not only the joy that comes from feeling love consistently and intensely, but you will reap the rewards; seeing what you want will come more quickly.

You have been given this magnificent inner guidance system to show you the way to living your most joyful life. It’s there in your calm. All you have to do is listen to it, feel it, trust it, and act on it... right now!

Have an absolutely magical week full of love, gratitude, and fun, fun, FUN!
