Using Your Intuition As Your Guide
When you start using your intuition as your guide, you step into a place of knowing what to do and when to do it. Making choices in your life gets muddied by so much. Other people’s directives and opinions often affect the choice you make. Choices are also affected by your own second-guessing.

Your inner wisdom is your intuition. It’s that gut instinct that speaks to you. When you hear these messages and understand them, choices become more obvious and actionable. You are drawn forward to allowing your best self to shine. That’s how using your intuition as your guide becomes magical.
You have intuition. Everyone does. It’s that internal GPS that gives you an answer quickly. Like a traditional GPS, you only need to know how to program it and it gives you direction. Then, you must check in with it to make sure you are still clearly on the right path. This is how using your intuition as your guide becomes a skill you use.
Programming yourself to hear your intuition is a skill set that is learnable. Creating the space within and around you is that actual programming. Just as you put in the directions to a GPS, creating this space allows your internal GPS to come forward and guide you quickly and clearly.
How to Create a Skillset out of Using Your Intuition As Your Guide
1. Clear your Space for Clarity.
In order to hear and understand your intuition, you must have space available. The space you live and work in is essential to hearing your own wisdom clearly and effectively. When your space is cluttered, it is full of distractions. Distractions that take your mind in a million and one different directions. Within this space of clutter and chaos, there is no room for your own mind to settle down.
When there are distractions, it is difficult to focus on the task at hand ~ accessing your own inner wisdom. Clearing the decks, maintain a clutter-free environment allows you not only to focus on the task but gives you space to truly sink into a deep breath. The expansive breath that affords the space internally to hear your intuition more clearly.
2. Energize Your Breathing.
The air element is associated with your mental clarity so it is natural that breathing is the key to calming your mind. Focusing on deep belly breaths allows energy to flow freely through your body. Breathing is vital to releasing any clouds of confusion that are covering up clear and supportive thinking.

3. Program The Beat of Your Own Heart
Take a deep belly breath now. Focus on it. When you do this, you can not think about anything else. When you exhale, imagine blowing away clouds of confusion and chaos. You begin to program yourself into hearing your inner wisdom when you do this.
Once you clear your space and energize your breathing, the next step to programming yourself to hear your inner wisdom is to be able to quickly sit still and listen. To do this, you must manage the beat of your own heart.
When your heartbeat is defined by stress and emotion, it does not serve you. It will beat fast and furiously. When you are anxious or stressed, your heart is used to support that not allowing you to hear your inner wisdom. When your heart is slow and steady, there is space for your GPS to function at full capacity. The good news is that programming your heartbeat can be done easily.
Start by tapping the rhythm you feel in your heart. You can use your finger on a desk. Increase the pace of your tapping and see how it affects your energy. Slow it down. See how your energy flows so very differently. Program yourself to be in this slow space. This ease allows you to hear your inner wisdom.
This is a great approach to get to a quick answer. Clear the Clutter, breathe in air, and program the rhythm of your heartbeat. Once you learn this skill, it need not take long to sit into this space.
Begin to Command Using Your Intuition As Your Guide
4 Command Guidance
Once you are in this space. Command your inner wisdom for guidance. Many would suggest you Ask for guidance. What I know about asking is that it puts you back into a place of being confused and unclear. Asking allows for your uncertainty to come forward. Asking means you still do not have the answer.
The answer is now, always has been, and always will be inside of you.
The answer is your inner GPS. It never turns off. It simply gets mis-programmed by our lack of attention and then, we are led in the wrong direction.
Now is the time to command your inner CPS to come forward. Commanding it is a sign to the Universe that you are, now, ready and willing to hear and head its messages. So stop asking for its guidance. You’ve programmed it. Now command it!
Instead of asking “what do I need to know?” or “What am I supposed to do?” rephrase it to say “What my inner wisdom wants me to know is….” or “The deepest truth is that it’s time to ….” This rephrasing, in the space of clear space, mind, and emotion, allows your inner wisdom to bolt forward. This works magically for any situation but is crucial to discovering what is best for our own sacred self-care.
It’s the use of tools like this and getting support in how to use them that allows your ability to grow exponentially. In the Living Your Truth Sisterhood, the monthly modules teach you how to do just this. And, there is always support available to catapult over any obstacle in using them!
