Reaching the End of What You Know – Finding Your Intuition

Today, when I was reading my favorite blogs, I read an explanation from psychic Amy Keast on Trusting your guides and how she finds her intuition, which fed perfectly into what I had planned to write today.

How many times have you heard people tell you to follow your intuition?

In my case, I don’t know of any time in my own life where I made a huge leap without following my intuition.  For me, it often appears in a written form, but not always.

The problem is that most of don’t have much idea about how to find our intuition when we are in the midst of turmoil or trouble in our life.

I’ve noticed that to have access to my intuition,  I must follow the Tao Te Ching advice of yesterday’s blog and learn to trust and in a certain sense give up ambition.  Then, I can listen to my intuition.

What are the ways in which you tap into your intuition when you need it most?

And what might your intuition be telling you to do now to create a quantum leap in your life?

Give Up on Being the Only Driver of Change in Your Life

This summer feels like one of my best summers even though many aspects of my life are far from optimal.  To give you a sense of where I’m at, I just picked up Retire on Less Than You Think by Fred Brock because I like my simple life, and don’t want to keep chasing after money for the rest of my life, though I want to be responsible.  In so many ways, I am living the quantum leap of contentment and gratitude and joy, even though I’m not reaching the outer goals that most people seem to value more than peace of mind.

Part of the reason for my bliss is because I’ve learned to give up on being the sole driver of change in my life.

The Earth seen from Apollo 17.I’d like to offer this idea to you from Paulo Coehlo in The Alchemist:

Everything on earth is being continuously transformed, because the earth is alive . . . and it has a soul. We are part of that soul, so we rarely recognize that it is working for us.

Today, no matter what is happening in your life, ask yourself:

How could the earth and maybe even the universe be collaborating with me for my highest good through this situation?

If you can find a way to see grace working with you even through your challenges, you are well on your way to experiencing a quantum leap in this moment.
