Vigilant Inner Listening

Vigilant Inner Listening

One sure-fire way of knowing if we are energetically out of sync with our lives is to observe whether we are feeling inspired and energized. If we are not, on some level we are choosing fear and are being held captive by it. Through the stance of inner listening and through acknowledging, identifying and embracing unconscious beliefs and behavior patterns hidden beneath a reluctance to change, we are able to access an expanded vision for our lives. And when we align with renewed vision and purpose, we become more authentic. We are able to engage with ourselves and with the world in a way that reflects passion and integrity.

10 Things Highly Intuitive People Do Differently

Intuition is challenging to define, despite the huge role it plays in our everyday lives. Steve Jobs called it, for instance, “more powerful than intellect.” But however we put it into words, we all, well, intuitively know just what it is. Pretty much everyone has experienced a gut feeling — that unconscious reasoning that propels us to do something without telling us why or how. But the nature of intuition has long eluded us, and has inspired centuries’ worth of research and inquiry in the fields of philosophy and psychology.
