in•tu•i•tion = the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning. A thing that one knows or considers likely from instinctive feeling rather than conscious reasoning.
Impulsively living. This is neither good or bad, it is what it is. I act on the majority of my impulses. This can get me in trouble sometimes, it kinda feels like driving with a blindfold on. I might get where I am going, but the likelihood I took a few people out on the voyage is highly likely. Then there are the times when my impulses always lead me in the right direction.
Do you act on your impulse?
Sometimes when I act on a impulse it seems like it is caused by an unconscious emotional external trigger. Like lets say I am worried about not hearing from someone, so I am going along and then all of a sudden I text that person, even though I have already texted them and there is really no need to be texting, impulsively unable to wait for them to reach out. This comes from a thought of being forgotten and the emotion from the thought of being forgotten feels lonely or emotionally neglected. I am responsible for my thoughts. I am responsible for my emotions.
I will tell you when you can take a moment with your impulse and ask it if it truly needs to be acted on right now or if it can wait, you will start acting more from your intuition and less from impulse. Your intuition is that gut response to the connection we all have with the source of all that is. Its like a magic sense that will always be correct, even when it seems to be wrong. That is just a perspective.
I have been out of balance lately and just acting on impulses and this is not helping the collective. All hearts are linked.
Intuition is not influenced by external triggers, it is not an immediate, impulsive reaction. It is a voice that operates when the mind and soul are clear and working together. It is a voice that almost comes from an ancient place residing inside us all. The cool part is your intuition belongs solely to you. Do you trust it?
If you don’t or your not sure. Start to practice mindfulness. I am right along with you, I am making a conscious decision to be mindful. Mindfulness is being present in the moment. Sneaking moments to mindfully breath are really helpful to be present. There are a few questions I like to ask myself, “Is this necessary right now?”, “Is this kind?” and “Is this helpful?”. If my answer is yes to all 3 of these then it is coming from that deeper place, if any of the answers are no, it is probably coming more from a place of anxiety.
Believe in the reliability and truth of your intuition.
