I did a podcast interview a few years ago on self-care and trusting your intuition and the woman asked me
Q: “What is something super simple that we can all do no matter how busy life gets to start off our day right to hear our intuition?”
If you are like most people, you may feel like aren’t enough hours in the day to focus on intuitive-development or self care.
What typically happens is we go go go like little hamsters and then when we can’t take it anymore, we overindulge in food, drink, even spa services and vacations when if we just implemented some simple strategies into our daily life, we wouldn’t go into what I call, “self-pampering binges.”
So I’m going to share the same simple but powerful offering you can do right when you open your eyes to set yourself up to tune into your gut feelings throughout the day.
It takes less than 10 seconds once you get some practice.
I call it…The Soul Word.
Right when you open your eyes (before your monkey brain starts to take over), ask yourself, “What’s my Soul word today?”
Listen to the first things that come.
It could be thematic like “peace” or an adjective describing how you want to feel “centered,”
Just go with one.
And let that be the word that choose to embody for the next 24 hours.
Why this is so powerful:
When you embody that word, you get to make sure that your actions and choices throughout the day match that energy.
It helps you ‘check’ yourself and you can more easily make decisions by asking, “Hmmmm, does this request/opportunity/invitation support my word?”
As you align your actions and choices and even your body posture (back straight!) with the energy of that Soul word, your monkey brain gets to relax…it feels safe because it doesn’t have to work so hard to sort through this and that.
The Soul word acts as an energetic guard-rail to allow you to feel more clear throughout the day and therefore, tune into the subtle nudgings of your intuition.
