There are times when our intuition seems to elude us. So close, yet just slightly out of reach. The most frustrating part is that although we know there is a well of wisdom within us, we just can’t seem to tap in to it.
“Listen to your heart”. “Trust your instincts”. Yes, you get it. But, as much as you try to tune in and hear it, sometimes you just can’t quite pick up a clear signal.
Not to worry, though. There are things that you can do about it.
Do you second guess yourself? Rely on others people’s opinions and advice before making decisions? We all do to some extent. However, we need to be careful. There’s a fine line between learning from others and giving our power away.

But not only that. We also get a sense of how to actually use those clues to guide our actions and make positive changes in our lives. Certainly worth the few moments of time it takes to jot things down, don’t you think? Read More

Recognizing what is, and isn’t, intuition can sometimes be tricky. How do you know if it’s really intuition and not just your imagination or wishful thinking?
Since intuition can be very subtle, it’s not always easy to tell the difference. What often happens is that we dismiss our intuition as nothing more than the chattering of the mind or passing whimsy.
Or we may believe something is our intuition when it’s actually just a byproduct of underlying fear, desire, or subconscious beliefs.
So, how can you tell the difference? How can you recognize when it’s really your intuition?
Here are some tips that can help. Read More
