For your consideration…

I’m thinking that we all feel like this sometimes…like something is different or missing but we can’t quite put our finger on it. Somehow we know that there is more. There is more than what meets the eye. This is our intuition talking to us.

Most of us have not been brought up learning to listen to our intuition…our gut. This is unfortunate because the best way to hone our intuition is by listening to it and trusting it. The more we do it, the stronger it gets. We tend to second guess ourselves. We tend to think about intuition as being mysterious because we don’t exactly know how it works. We have to have faith to learn to trust it.

This can be hard. Personally I know like I know like I know that if I don’t listen to my intuition things will not go well. Yet I still second guess myself. Recently we were in the Pacific Northwest for my daughter’s wedding. On the morning of the wedding I gathered my things to join my daughter and the bride’s maids at her house for hair and makeup. As I was gathering my things I noticed my husbands dress socks on the floor. They were not there because they were dirty. He hadn’t worn them. My intuition told me to pick them up. I ignored it as a nuisance thought. I told myself he probably put them there so he knew where they were. Later that afternoon he lost his balance picking them up from the floor. He fell injuring himself, sustaining a pretty bad cut and putting a hole in the wall.

Our message today reminds us that when we feel like something is not quite right. It probably isn’t. If we feel like we are missing something, we probably are. If we sense danger, there probably is something that we need to take notice of and act accordingly. If we think we should change things up and do something differently, we probably should. If we feel like we are being watched, we probably are. If we feel something new or exciting is about to happen, get ready because it probably is.

Intuition is part of the mystery of life. Just because we don’t understand it does not mean it doesn’t exist or that it is not a very important tool in our life tool box. Think about it. We see animals use their intuition, their senses. We accept it as fact. Why then should we ever question our own.

Today we are asked to listen and trust our intuition without doubt and with complete faith.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take…

-Affirm…“I am loved.”

-Meditate/pray…ask…What is my next step for my highest good and the highst good of all?”

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Trust your intuition.

What made me smile yesterday…

-Breakfast at Antonio’s with Jody and running into other friends, Helen, Rachel and Becky.

-Discovering a great new coffee shop.

-Ginger and Debbie did an outstanding job with the reunion. Everything looked beautiful. The food was good. Seeing old friends awesome.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
