How do you know if your gut is telling you something is wrong?
Exploring The Three Principles with Sarie Taylor
When we are talking about our gut instinct, which I refer to as wisdom or universal intelligence behind life, we are not talking about our personal thinking, judgements and opinions but more so a feeling, a knowing.
Its important to listen to this, but how do we know the difference between that and an anxious thought or an idea from intellect, a judgment?
Have you ever been in a situation where you eventually change something that isn’t serving you and you look back and say, "I just knew something wasn’t right a long time ago but I ignored it"!?
When our mind goes quiet we just know.
Our wisdom guides us moment to moment on what is best for us and yet often what can get in the way of us listening to this is our personal thoughts, the what ifs and the concept of should and shouldn’t.
So, how can we hear what our gut is telling us?
Wisdom isn’t full of urgency and worry, it doesn’t panic!
Wisdom isn't confused, it just knows.
If the answer doesn’t seem simple and you don’t just ‘know’ then you may be caught up in your thinking and would benefit from getting quiet and present to see what comes to mind.
One of the misconceptions about wisdom and gut is that it somehow predicts the future.
It isn’t telling you something bad is about to happen at a future moment, but rather it is guiding you in this exact moment when you listen.
Wisdom knows how to deal with, and manage, whatever we face in the moment. It doesn’t need to concern itself with anything beyond now, it will deal with that when it comes!
The good news is that this means you don’t need to be concerned or worried about whether there is a secret message about the future, or whether you are being warned of anything bad.
Its just for us to get quiet and and present and listen for the gentle, calm knowing that is always guiding you.
Remain open minded, go within and listen and you will always be guided by the miracle that is wisdom!
