How well do you listen to your own intuition? And where are you most likely to hear it?
I’ve discovered over time that some of my best, most powerful and authentic ideas come when I’m relaxed and doing some habitual task that doesn’t require much brainpower. Thus, I like to say:
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a great idea in the shower.”
I personally have set out to achieve many a goal based on a flash of insight I got while shaving my legs (the same legs which later took that first step Lao Tsu was talking about).
I’ve learned to trust these “shower sparks”, because I’ve found that I get my best ideas when I least expect them. And certainly not when I’m desperately TRYING to come up with one.
Got a problem you’ve been trying to solve, or a decision you’ve been needing to make? Let your intuition provide the answer. Try a mantra like, “My true self knows what to do, and will reveal my best path.”
Then when you get that idea or solution that excites you, go with it. The more you trust your intuition, the more powerful it becomes.
I’d love to hear from you — where are you and what are you doing when you get your best ideas?
