This is how it works ~
I had a problem. It was a technical problem with my writing.
In a story I was writing.
I couldn’t figure it out.
I spent the entire day trying to figure it out.
It drove me nuts.
Anyone who thinks writing is easy is not a writer.
So here’s what I did. When I went to bed, before sleep, I asked.
I asked that in the morning, I would have a clear solution to my problem.
And that’s what happened.
When I woke up, in that state when your soul is drifting back into your body after traveling all night, the problem was solved. I had the answer.
That’s how intuition works.
You have to ask – then you have to let go – and you have to not be invested in the outcome.
What does that mean – not be invested in the outcome?
It means you must not try to predict the outcome. And you must trust that no matter what answer you’re given, that it’s the right answer, no matter how wrong you might think it is.
Caroline Myss said to me: Bad things happen to good people. But what’s a bad thing? How do you know what’s a bad thing?
Same with answers that come through intuition.
How do you know what’s the right answer or the wrong answer?
What happened when I asked, before going to sleep?
I let go my rational thought processes.
I gave it over to sleep.
And I trusted that my innate guidance system would do the work for me –
Which it did.
There’s a saying in intuition: First thought, best thought.
But how often do we dismiss our first thought?
Think that it’s crazy.
And we revert to logic, or common sense.
And we do what we’ve always done in the past.
We don’t move forward.
We miss opportunities for growth.
First thought, best thought.
Learn to trust it.
It’s your guidance –
Your Personal Guidance System.
