As a child, I never used my intuition as a guide. To be honest, I’m not sure I understood what intuition was back then.
It’s a shame really, but I believe now that had I have used my intuition growing up, I would have had the chance to focus on certain aspects of my life, without constantly looking back on my past, missed opportunities and all of my non-achievements.
I understand more about intuition now. It is our intuition that keeps our lives centred, so that we’re more understanding of why our lives turn out the way they do. I believe that when we understand why something happens the way it does, we’re usually strong enough to walk away from any past indiscretions; because we understand.
How well our intuition works very much depends on us and how much we practice, listening to our thoughts and being open to those thoughts. It’s either something we understand and can work with, or something we won’t understand and will miss. There are no half measures.
From my own personal experiences, the more we participate, the more attention we will pay to the thoughts we receive through our intuition. The more intuitive we are, the more inspired we will become.
The more inspired we become, the more we will live in the present, move on from the past, the easier it will be to just let things be.
