One of my primary life lessons, one which has returned again and again in one form or another has been - learning the importance of intuition.
Sometimes these lessons have been severe and intense, at other times minor or amusing.
A recent example being where intuition spoke up …
(which for me feels like a nudge deep in my gut, presumably because in Human Design I have sacral authority with a yes/no direction from this space and I would encourage everyone to get their Human Design chart done and see where their authority lies)
… it was dissuade me from ordering my standard chilli margarita coz I was actually going to receive the most vile paprika flavoured cocktail in the world.
I dismissed the initial nudge tho because I decided in my mind and in my cognitive functioning that I knew better. It did not make sense, it did not match the facts and it did not align with my evidence from past experience.
This is often the case. Intuition won’t make sense in the moment. It only becomes crystal clear when the results of ignoring it shows it’s hand.
Clearly in this trivial instance, I was not receptive. But as the years go by, I AM getting becoming better at paying attention.
For the bigger pieces that play out over time, calling on the heightened intuition of Inner Autumn (days 19-28+ of the female cycle) with the heightened insight of Inner Winter (days 1-5) provide a beautiful degree of clarity around what intuition is speaking into.
Intuition has connected me with so many opportunities and some of the most wonderful people in my life. It has the power to steer you into great joy and away from destruction.
But that’s not to say that going off path doesn’t have a purpose.
If I hadn’t ignored knowing and screwed up my health in my teens/twenties, I may not have so greatly needed an understanding of hormone health and my inner cycle which led into the work I do. Likewise, with the mindset component, if things hadn’t gotten so dire, perhaps I wouldn’t have been so passionate about growth mindset work.
I’m a great believer that each lesson and deviation serves your ultimate purpose (even if just to reflect why you need to listen in the first place).
