When you get back into the dating game, it’s totally normal to feel uncomfortable and it can feel hard to know the difference between the signals you are getting from your intuition and just old fears that could be creeping up around getting back in the game and being vulnerable.
You may have heard the advice, “Always trust your first impressions.”
While first impressions are important, I want to take it a step further. Some of the most powerful information about a date and whether going out with them again would be a good idea for your Soul happens in the 3-5 minutes AFTER the date ends and you leave their presence.
Note: This exercise is most effective if you are doing in-person dating.
In the 3-5 minutes after they or you leave, your gut feelings come to the surface to process the information you received about your interaction and connection.
Capitalize on this!
What to do:
Put a little notepad in your purse and after they leave, when you are sitting on the train or in your car, write down the answers to the following questions. Do it quickly as the logical mind will want to swoop in and what you want to capture is your intuitive knowings.
1. Right now, my body is feeling……
Example: tight in the throat, open and warm, a little scared, nervous, like butterfiles
Don’t judge anything you write down. Again, you are just downloading information.
2. What I already know about this connection is…
Example: I really trust them, I’m not sure I feel safe, I feel light, etc.
3. The next morning, look back at your answers and make your decision.
Sometimes if your body is tight that doesn’t necessarily mean NO. In that case, ask your intuition, “Is there something I want to ask them or tell them that would help me feel more clear?”
And if you get a “Yes” write down what you want to say or ask and make a plan to connect with them. And if you get a “No” to that, then that’s a likely sign your intuition is saying that it’s probably not in your best interest to keep dating that person and that’s okay! There is a pot for every lid and what this exercise does is helps you determine whether a date is your energetic match or not. Nothing bad or good about you or them. It’s about energy! And as you practice this exercise you will learn how to trust your intuition and its impressions to draw in that special soul mate soon enough Goddess!
