If we don’t receive, understand or accept a message from our still small voice at first, it will repeat itself into our lives, louder and louder until we get it. It starts with a whisper and if that’s all it takes, fabulous! But since Life can get complicated and since we are prone to be suspicious of anything that seems too good to be true, softer and gentler messages are immediately discounted. We often don’t believe we can trust the messages we get and we also don’t trust we’ll have the strength to follow through with our inner promptings.

The good news is that your intuition does not ever, ever, ever give you information without also hanging around to see if you need clarification. It never dispenses critical nuggets of truth only to disappear. “Yep, ok Friend, let me know how that works out for you, I’ve got a plane to catch!”

Nope. Your intuition is patient with you. And it gives you the information you need in the order you need it. And it does not mind repeating itself.

Consider that your intuition already knows what you need to know, how you need to hear it, and which pieces need to arrive fully formed in your consciousness in any particular order. It knows what needs to be repeated and what you’ll need some time to digest. And it also knows what to leave out until you’re ready for it!

Follow The Breadcrumbs: Find a quiet, comfortable place where you won’t be disturbed for about 30 minutes. Take a few minutes to follow your breath and then your heartbeat, watching and observing their rhythms rather than trying to control them or steady them yourself. Once you are relaxed, write at the top of a page in your journal, This Moment. Ask your intuition, “What is the most important thing I need to know right now?” and write down whatever pieces come to you. Don’t struggle to understand what you get back, just keep an open mind. (Hint: the information may seem more loving and encouraging than you’re used to.) Remember to discard any messages that seem anxious, punitive, judgemental, or have even the slightest bit of fear attached to them. If you’re noticing you’re struggling with tension, do more breathing until you get to a calmer place inside you. And if at first you don’t succeed, take a break. Don’t force it.

I promise the more you do this exercise, the easier it will become and the more you will rely on it.
