15 Jul RIGHT OR WRONG CHOICES
When you make a decision you direct your energy, your thoughts, your focus. Staying in a state of indecision is highly uncomfortable. When you are in-between two or several choices, picking one and following it releases the necessary energy and dedication. How do you know what decision is the best one?
Our body will tell us if we are comfortable with a particular place, person or choice in life and if it is truly in our highest good.
The decision-making process should engage both your left and right brain. You often know instantly what choice is right for you, yet you start analysing it, making pros and cons, talking to others about it, analysing it again and just hanging in the space of no decision. It becomes especially tricky when your intuition is telling you to do something that doesn’t fit into your idea of who you are or what you should be doing.
During the decision-making process, intuition often speaks to you via your body, through sensations and feelings. It can also come as suddenly noticing things you haven’t noticed before: someone mentions something that brings your attention towards a direction that resonates with you; excites you.
The key here is to get out from your analysing brain into the body. The body will tell you, without hesitation, what decision is best for you. When you imagine that you have already made a certain decision, you should feel comfortable, excited or calm. Your energy should rise.
On the other hand, if, after imagining your decision taken, you feel discomfort, negative emotion, energy loss or just apathy, the decision is most likely not beneficial to you.
It is important to know that since intuition speaks to us in subtle ways, any strong emotions can be a product of your mind, not the intuition. Often, strong desire or fear mask the intuitive message. When I was about to decide whether to speak for the first time in my life in front of 500 people at a conference, the fear I felt was overwhelming. Yet, I knew deep down that doing this and overcoming that fear would be highly beneficial to my further development.
The dream state is also connected to our subconscious and to the intuitive mind; there is a reason why people have been fascinated by dreams since the beginning of the human endeavour. Well-known psychologists made dreams a valid mapping psyche system. Decoding your dreams could help you to know yourself more and make decisions.
We all dream, yet we often don’t remember our dreams. Remembering dreams requires training. You can count on the cumulative effect of programming yourself each night before going to sleep to remember your dreams.
Quieten your mind and recall a significant decision you made recently. How did you make it? Did you involve both your analytical process and your intuition? How did the decision make you feel when done?
- Make yourself comfortable and let your eyes close. Take a few moments to focus on your breath and let each breath relax you more deeply. Allow your hands to rest on your lap, with your palms facing upwards
- Now think about the decision you need to make and imagine that in one hand you are holding the word ‘yes’, and in the other hand you are holding the word ‘no’. See the letters, feel their weight and sense their texture.
- Take a few moments to focus on the word ‘yes’. How does it feel? How do you feel? Do any images or sounds come to mind?
- Now take a few moments to focus on the word ‘no’. How does it feel? How do you feel? Take as long as you would like to explore all the sensations, feelings, visions or music that go with the word ‘no’.
- When you have a clear sense of ‘yes’ and ‘no’, you might want to ask questions of your intuition in your mind and sense the response. Explore this idea for a while. Then, when you are ready, you can open your eyes and come back to the room.
When you are finished, take a few moments to breathe and think about what your intuition has been communicating to you about your decision.
