As an empath, you have a heightened sense of intuition. You pick up on the energy of people and situations, and this can give you insights and guidance that others may not have.
However, for many empaths, trusting their intuition can be a challenge. This is often because their intuitive abilities were not validated, confirmed when they were younger, or never heard, “You were right!” They may have been taught to prioritize logic over feelings, or to disregard their emotions in favor of pleasing others. This can lead to a sense of mistrust in one's own inner voice, and an unwillingness to listen to and act on intuitive guidance.
When you don't trust your intuition, you may find yourself second-guessing your decisions, feeling unsure of yourself, and experiencing a sense of disconnect from your inner voice. You may also be more prone to making decisions based on logic or other people's opinions, rather than trusting your own inner guidance.
On the other hand, when you do trust your intuition, you can tap into a powerful source of guidance that can help you navigate your life with more ease and grace. You may find that your decisions are more aligned with your true purpose and that you experience a greater sense of flow and synchronicity in your life.
In order to develop trust requires a willingness to let go of old patterns and beliefs and to open yourself up to the possibility that your inner voice is a valid and reliable source of guidance. Here are some step-by-step actions you can take to start trusting your intuition:
As an empath, I have always had strong intuition, but there have been times when I didn't trust my inner guidance. One such instance occurred when I had an idea for a new fitness class that combined elements of ballet, yoga, and Pilates. At the time, I was an adult student of ballet, and I noticed that the classes help me quickly tone and strengthen my body without putting too much stress on my joints.
I thought to myself, "What if I could create a workout that combined the grace and strength of ballet with the mind-body benefits of yoga and Pilates?" I was excited about the idea and felt that it had the potential to be a hit. (I even went as far as purchasing a ballet bar for my own gym)
However, I quickly dismissed the idea because I wasn’t a ‘professional’ ballet dancer. I felt that I wasn't qualified to teach a class that involved ballet movements, and I didn't want to risk looking foolish in front of everyone so I let the idea go.
Several years later, I discovered that the concept I had thought of had been developed by someone else and had become a popular fitness trend: Barre classes. I was surprised and disappointed that I had let my lack of confidence in my abilities prevent me from pursuing an idea that had the potential to be successful.
Looking back on that experience, I realized that I had let my fear and self-doubt override my intuition. My inner guidance had told me that the idea had potential, but I had dismissed it because I didn't trust myself. If I had listened to my intuition and taken the time to explore the idea further, I may have been able to bring it to life and create a successful business around it.
In summary, it's important to recognize that your intuition is a valuable tool that can help you navigate your life with more ease and grace. While it can be challenging to trust your inner voice, learning to do so can be a transformative experience that can lead to greater clarity, purpose, and fulfillment.
