Step 1: Stop and breathe. Feel my body and get present. It’s much harder to hear my intuition when I’m frantic, so making a state change first is essential.
Step 2: Feel my vulnerability. It’s painful but I need to accept it without trying to mask or defend it. This is the truth of where I’m at, and I need to be honest with myself in order to be fully receptive. Sometimes this means I just let go and have a good cry. Been doing this a lot more than usual lately!
Step 3: Surrender to divine support. Admit that I’m not in control and need help. I open my spirit to receive guidance. I imagine there’s a cone of light emanating from my body, and I expand it all around me.
Step 4: When I hear the guidance (or get the impulse to do something about my situation) I follow it without overthinking. I resist the urge to doubt myself (again the mind is GREAT at this and can stop you in your tracks).
Step 5: I keep checking in with my higher wisdom as I take action. Sometimes taking action means asking someone for help. When I get inspiration about who to ask, they’re almost always immediately available and ready to show up.
If it inspires you to follow these steps the next time you’re facing a challenge - please try it out. And let me know how it goes!
Oh and p.s. This is a photo of me at Sharla’s house enjoying the sun and finding a much-needed moment of respite amidst the chaos.
