Develop Your Intuition, Build Self-Trust, and Discern What’s Right for You

In this episode, I’m talking all about developing intuition, building self-trust, and learning to discern what’s right for us as we navigate life and work to live our purpose. These skills are especially critical in the aftermath of challenging chapters and big life transitions. You’ve changed at your core, and your life, relationships, and work are changing too. Life is shaping you, and that can be incredibly disorienting! And beyond that, the changes you’re going through are scary and uncomfortable for the people around you, and they’ll have a lot to say about it (often projections or from their fears and limiting beliefs). You have to know what’s right and true for you, but you can’t do that if you haven’t developed these skills.

What to listen for:

  • Revisiting the essential frameworks and processes in season one
  • Where intuition lives and how we hear our distinct “yes” and “no”
  • Developing a relationship with our bodies when we’ve been disconnected

If we’ve had traumatic experiences, especially certain types of trauma, there are times that we’re not present and grounded in our body. I certainly experienced that after my loss, the PTSD, and the abusive relationship that I was in. It was hard for me to be in my body. And When it’s hard for us to be in our body, it’s hard for us to really tune in and hear our intuition speaking to us.

  • Practices for grounding back into our bodies
  • A simple process for building trust in your intuition
  • Understanding how fear confuses how we read our intuitive hits

Sometimes when we feel contraction, that doesn’t mean it’s a no. It just means that our mind got involved really quickly and triggered fear, and fear can often bring tension into our body. So you have to get to the root of what happened immediately after something was presented to you.”

  • Why intuition is harder for some people
  • Times my intuition has guided me to do totally illogical things
  • Why trusting our intuition doesn’t mean things will be seamless

“Sometimes our intuition is leading us directly into something that will be challenging and hard and difficult because that is what we need to go through in order to be the person that we want to be.”

  • What it means to build trust in ourselves
  • Having integrity with ourselves and why it matters
  • Pushing our edges and navigating the terror barrier
  • Understanding our subconscious beliefs and why we self-sabotage

“Essentially, when we go beyond what’s known and familiar, our subconscious comes into play, and it does everything that it can to get us to stop. That’s why we self-sabotage. That’s why it seems like everything that can go wrong does go wrong.”

  • Learning that we can do hard things
  • The Universe is continually expanding, and how this applies to us
  • Building trust in that greater energy at play
  • How we can cause the world to reconfigure around us

“At the very least, decide that you live in a universe that supports your highest good. That its baseline wiring, the way that it is designed to function, is to support you in creating what you want. Decide that the world is not out to get you, and that shifts your perception. That shifts your way of being in the world. And it allows you to create different outcomes.”

  • Only you know what’s right and true for you
  • Why these journeys trigger the people around us
  • The many times I’ve gone against everyone’s advice
  • The critical elements of discernment you need to understand

“That takes a lot of self-awareness and a lot of ability to be honest with ourselves.”

  • Going against what other people want for us
  • Understanding your subconscious programming
  • Seeing this play out in our incredible interviews
