There are many tips out there for developing your intuition which is great and such an important thing to do on your spiritual journey. Yet, there may be times when you doubt your intuition or question whether what you’re sensing is real and that’s why I wanted to create a post this week to help you identify what’s intuition and what’s ego when you’re doubting yourself.
I’ve had this happen to me a few times along my spiritual journey, we’re human it’s perfectly normal for us to question things or maybe even feel confused when something doesn’t happen the way we thought it would. There are a few things to consider with intuition and it’s definitely important that you take the time to work with your intuition and listen even if on small decisions to start off with. If however, you’re doubting yourself on something you’ve intuitively sensed before but now are not sure here are my top tips to help you re-align back with your truth and help bring clarity around what’s intuition vs. fear.
Go Back To The First Time
I was reminded of this by my guides a while ago when I was doubting some intuition. They said ‘Go back to the very first time you had intuition about this, how clear was it? How certain did you feel?’ This really helped me as it’s true, in those moments when we’re not searching we can be hit with a powerful inner knowing and at the time you don’t doubt it as it’s so strong and spontaneous. Yet over time that’s when fear can creep in and start to make you doubt your intuition or what you ‘know’. So go back to the very time it hit you, how strong was it? How did it make you feel in that moment? The chances are you didn’t doubt so tune back into that knowing as see how it feels.
How Does It Feel?
Next up, it’s important to look at how it makes you feel. If you feel anxious when getting an answer from your ‘intuition’ this is probably fear. Even if it’s something you don’t particularly feel is great it should still bring an expansive feeling and knowing of all will be well. If you feel fear and panic this is likely your ego/inner critic/inner child trying to jump in out of fear. So make sure you’re raising your vibes regularly and feeling grounded when you do tune into your intuition so that you can feel into whether your answer feels tense and uncertain or whether it feels expansive and peaceful. Intuition is all about how it makes you feel so remember – how did your first answer make you feel?
“Remember we’re not always meant to know everything or how every minor detail will unfold in our life. So sometimes you have to wing it and trust that the doubt in your intuition could be because you are not meant to know how it unfolds. The Universe always has your back!”
Can You Relax Into The Uncertainty?
A really practical final step is to look at whether you can relax into the uncertainty. If things still don’t feel clear to you, what can you do? Can you be okay with not knowing? Remember we’re not always meant to know everything or how every minor detail will unfold in our life. So sometimes you have to wing it and trust that the doubt in your intuition could be because you are not meant to know how it unfolds. The Universe always has your back! So challenge yourself to relax into the not knowing and see if any fear or beliefs arise around that which you can work on. Remember also if you’re feeling confused at intuition that didn’t happen – again sometimes we are meant to see things at certain times to learn the lessons we’re meant to, maybe there even could have been a possibility that it could happen. The downside of being intuitive is that we can see many possibilities and options that are in our field of possibilities so this doesn’t mean you were wrong it just means something better aligned and that’s a positive too! So be gentle with yourself and trust yourself Queen because we all know our intuition is right a heck of a lot of the time. It’s only when we start to overthink, analyse or inspect details that we create confusion for ourselves. So what if you don’t know how it will happen? What if you let it unfold naturally and let the Universe surprise you – how would that feel?
