Let your intuition guide you

Updated: May 15, 2021



We can easily recognize the signs and the guidance of the universe as little kids, especially if we’re lucky to be brought up close to nature (not in front of the TV). Intuition is part of our daily reality. However, over the years, we are taught how to use our logical minds. The society we live in programs us to suppress our emotions and feelings, to stop listening to our body's needs, to follow our reasonable thoughts, not our heart. In general, we are to behave according to strictly established norms and rules.


And these are only a few reasons why we slowly drift away from our natural state of being which is the connection to our intuition, our higher self. We don't live for ourselves, but for others. We are afraid to fight for our dreams, because "It's not appropriate", "We don't deserve it", "And what will others say about that?". We do everything we SHOULD and we stop going in the direction our soul desires. We move away from our true selves… Thus we become more and more unhappy.


How do I know that? Because I'd been through it myself. I wanted to be the perfect child and to make my parents proud. Later on - the best pupil, student, partner, wife, mother... I bent over backwards to please them all. But somewhere in that turmoil, I forgot about myself... I had everything and I lived a really comfortable life, but depression started knocking on my door. Something was missing there... I lost myself...


There came a point where I said: - "Enough... I no longer want this life... I'll do whatever I love." But what did I actually love? What was I going to do? Who would I become? I didn't know... I forgot who I truly was... But I felt that I needed a change, that I wanted to go in a different direction... But which one?


And at that moment my intuition came to the fore... An invisible force was pushing me into the unknown. Seemingly delicate, yet so firm and resolute. And it was one of the worst and best moments in my life - taking a decision who to follow - my mind or my heart... That period lasted quite long and ended with panic attacks each time... But intuition reached my consciousness stronger every day... And as soon as I started spotting it, some invisible warmth began to heat my heart up. A little faint flame started illuminating my gray reality... And that little flame gave me hope that something better was yet to come...


Despite the endless panic attacks, I gathered up all my strength and I started taking action... Within a few months, I refused to cooperate with my husband and work as an architect at our office, I took my two children (aged 1 and 2,5) and moved out of our house, renting an apartment in another town. I didn’t care about the lawyers insisting that I should return to Poland immediately and stay there, at least until I got the divorce. I was to continue both studies (postgraduate in architecture and doctorate in archeology) - I gave up on both of them. I was abroad, completely alone, unemployed, with two small kids, two cats, and a dog. I was attacked by my family and friends for my decision - from which I had to cut myself off. According to them, I blew up my whole beautifully organized life... Yes, it could seem perfect from their perspective... But it wasn’t mine! They didn't understand why I acted like that and what my plans were - neither did I! I just FELT that I had to do that... That was what my intuition told me... I didn't listen to anyone else... Not even my logical mind... I kept moving forward without looking back...


Soon my life totally changed... I slowly started to learn what happiness means! It was not easy at first, as my logical mind alarmed and shouted that I wouldn’t be able to cope with the whole situation. However, the more I was reconnecting to my true self, the panic attacks faded and turned into peace and joy. I had so much free time that I could finally focus on myself and do all the things that I loved. I started learning meditation and other quantum techniques as well... And as long as I kept following my heart, ignoring the screams of my scared mind, the universe itself, in some magical way, provided me with everything I needed...


Although, before I began to consciously follow my intuition and started receiving channeled downloads, several years had passed. I had to work really hard on myself, on my inner world. I was tested by the universe in all possible ways, but I was able to finally silence my brain and listen to my higher self... And there were all the answers I needed. And they are always there - available at any time of the day or night. I can get a piece of advice on current events whenever I want, or look into something that belongs to the past but what may give me a deeper understanding of something. I can also ask for a scene from the future that will help me prepare myself for what is coming next.


All the answers are within you…

You don't need anyone to get them. All you have to do is to listen to your intuition, and to let your heart and soul guide you - it knows which direction to follow.


But how to distinguish intuition from ordinary thoughts? Or visions from our personal dreams?

I know that it can be difficult at the beginning. My first attempts to listen to my heart always ended with panic attacks. I simply felt that I should make a specific decision, take a certain action, but my logical mind immediately flooded me with questions:

"What if you fail?", "What if you make it up?", "What if it never happens?", "What if they laugh at you?", "What if you suffer later? " e.t.c…...


I followed it because I FELT it. I threw myself in at the deep end, often without even knowing how I would manage to get to the other side. But I always got there somehow. And the destination itself usually exceeded all my expectations...


Our dreams and beliefs often limit us... We have planned our lives (or others have done it for us) in a specific way and we consistently strive for it. We are even stuck in a routine or established patterns. What if the universe has planned something much more beautiful for us? Something that our logical mind can't even imagine?


And this is what intuition is for - to guide us towards a completely unknown direction... We often can't be sure what the destination of a path we're heading is and what our future is going to look like. It simply exceeds the possibilities of our limited consciousness. It would never have created such beautiful scenes by itself.


At first, listening to your heart may be like moving around with your eyes closed. You don't know where you go, you just FEEL that the chosen direction is right for you. You are aware that an invisible hand is holding your arm and helping you avoid all obstacles. And slowly, slowly, you start trusting it.


Your mind, however, will fight it. Thousands of questions like "What if ...?" will keep popping up in your head. They have only one goal - to make you stay in your well-known comfort zone and take no action, to stop you from changing your life...


And that makes you stay stuck...

You don't evolve...

You don't follow the path your soul longs for and dreams of...

You distance yourself from your true happiness...

You lose yourself...


Initially, downloads are very delicate, like a touch of a feather or a gust of light wind. Most often they take the form of a feeling, a vibration that appears out of nowhere, literally for a moment. It visits us and disappears. However, it is such a strong sensation that we feel that something is activated inside us. Then we feel a sudden joy, love, freedom, hope, or just inner peace... We may often not understand what happens and why, so the logical mind tries to ignore it, even deny it immediately.


However, when we start observing it, we notice after a while that the vibration returns and it's connected to a thought, idea, event, person, or scene from the future that suddenly appears in front of our eyes. And somewhere deep inside we know that it's good for us, that it should be so, that it's ours. No matter how illogical it may seem.


Don't think right away that it's just your imagination, that it's too good to be true, or that it will never happen. You have no idea what the universe really has planned for you… Don't limit yourself by being stuck in your mind. You deserve all the best.

So just pause for a moment.

Let yourself dive into these feelings.

Allow your imagination to see what it would be like if the scene really happened.

Just feel it...

Don't analyze, don't judge, don't reject.

FEEL….


These vibrations have a form of an invitation to take part in an event that may occur in the near or distant future. Pressure or force is never involved in it. It rather takes the form of a loving embrace by our close person and showing us the best direction. You can follow the advice or just ignore it. It's such a friendly proposition, and unfortunately, it's easy to overlook it. Especially when our noisy mind is still active and drowns it out immediately.


Should you follow it? There is nothing to think about, at all. It's like choosing between happiness and suffering... But you need courage and the willingness to take responsibility for your own actions, for your life... Not everyone will follow their heart blindly. Most will choose the safer, easier, more logical solution. However, when we move too far from our true selves, from the path our soul has chosen in this incarnation, the universe can remind us of it in a more drastic way. Not to punish us, but to warn us that we are going in the wrong direction. That there is no happiness and fulfillment there for us.


In order to have a clear picture of the guidance, advice from the universe talking to you through your intuition, you need to observe yourself, your feelings, vibrations that are associated with a certain event. Even the way your body reacts to it is important. When you receive a download (in the form of vibration, thought, idea, vision, etc.), pause for a moment. Feel it. Observe what happens inside you. If you are calm, relaxed, you feel love, hope, etc - it probably comes straight from the source. You don't judge it, you aren't emotionally involved in it. You just know somewhere deep inside that it's meant to be so, that it's yours. You feel your heart warming up, as its field grows, expands. Then you're flooded by even greater peace and understanding. However, when it's immediately connected with fear, uncertainty, disbelief, judgment, etc - this information was probably created by your mind.


Also remember to write down messages you receive IMMEDIATELY and return to them regularly, especially when you are close to doubting. It is very important. Your logical mind will try to do whatever it takes to create a spark of fear and uncertainty inside you. A few minutes, even seconds later, there may be no trace of this subtle loving download. It will be weighed down by disbelief and the "What if?" questions that your brain will start creating right away. It takes time and practice to gain confidence in yourself, but trust it. Trust yourself. Everyone has access to their higher self, to all the wisdom they are looking for. All the information is in you... Shift out of your mind into the field of your heart and let it guide you.


Following your intuition may require making many changes in your life, taking difficult decisions. You'll have to get out of your comfort zone and overcome your fear, lack of self-confidence, fear of failure. You will be forced to face other people's opinions, judgment, often without even knowing how to logically explain why you want to take such action. It won't be pleasant... Your mind will literally do everything to cut your wings.


But for me, listening to my heart, my soul, my higher self is a guarantee of success by itself... It knows what is best for me... It has access to all the knowledge of the universe...


If it's something my logical mind doesn't initially want to accept, then I just let the idea exist somewhere in the back of my head. I don't judge, deny, reject, I simply observe. After a longer or shorter period of time, I start to familiarize myself with that thought and it doesn't seem so unreal to me anymore. When an event arrives, no matter how much change, stress, and fear of the unknown it brings, I am prepared for it inside and I know that it's a part of a bigger plan. I know it happens for my own good.


After vibrations, feelings, observations of one's own body, scenes in the form of visions, symbolic dreams, downloads that just form spontaneously in our head, even heard sentences can begin to appear. Sometimes you will also get the impression that the universe is overwhelming you with symbols and signs. Listen to them. Observe them. There is a message just for you.


If you trust the process and really try to follow your intuition, all the answers you need will be available for you in a very short period of time. In reality, you already have access to them, you just need to silence your logical mind first and let these gentle vibrations reach your consciousness. Daily practice and all relaxation methods will be very helpful. Try different techniques and find what suits your character best, beliefs, and lifestyle.


Personally, I get the most downloads while relaxing in the bathtub, walking alone in the woods, in the fields or listening to music... My vibrations change then, they are lighter and I can spot the messages more easily. I highly recommend meditation (also guided at the beginning), or self-hypnosis which is the best tool to connect to our higher self, our spirit guides, and ask about everything we want.


And remember that for the universe there are no better and worse. Everyone may have a different role and tasks in this lifetime, but we all have access to guidance and downloads coming straight from the source. They don't have to concern only important life decisions. It may be an insignificant detail of our daily reality that will make our day more enjoyable. The guidance takes the form of advice, showing the direction, or an invitation to attend a major event. The universe will repeat its offer for a while and send its signs to you. If you notice them, you feel that something is up and that it's good, it's yours, then follow it! Do not hesitate!


You have thousands of different solutions at your disposal that you can't even imagine. If you start analyzing the received message, unfortunately, this possibility will be lost forever. The logical mind will find plenty of reasons to distract you from taking action. Fear and insecurity will push you back into your comfort zone. But you don't evolve there... You only stand in the same place… You're stuck…


If you want to let your soul fly up to the sky, you must finally open your wings and jump out of the nest. Such a jump into the unknown may not be very comfortable at first. You may also be\ forced to face your past traumas, blockages, fears, and anything else that still tightens your wings. But if the universe is pushing you in a certain direction, it means you're ready, it's time. Overcome your fears and take a risk to fly.

For yourself.

For your happiness.

For the liberation of your soul.
