4.) Ask for the answer. As you get in movement and shift your energy, ask a question. If I'm sitting at my desk trying to force the theme of the next article I find it helps to ask for what wants to be written. I'm amazed at how I get inspired answers on the way to checking out the mail! Just the power of walking helps -- and you need to be clear in your question so your higher self knows what you want to focus on.
5.) Let go. After you ask, then you let go. This step may seem counter-intuitive but actually it's about not forcing it. Sometimes when writing I just need to let go of the "perfect article" and just start typing... just let go and let it flow. Often I find I will write a question in my journal before I go to sleep and then let it go. My subconscious has a way of working the answer out to the forefront and I usually get it while in the shower. We've all heard about those powerful "shower thoughts"!
6.) Choose your endorsement. You get to choose which thought you are going to endorse or support. If you are like me, you ask -- well, is this the RIGHT answer? Here's where you get to develop your sense of trust. You get to choose what feels right in this moment and take the next step. There are many paths to get to where you want to go in your business and there truly isn't one magical way. So, asking for guidance, letting go and choosing to endorse the answer that comes is very freeing. Let go of finding the one final right answer and go with what feels right in this moment. It will lead you somewhere and you can take action from that new place.
7.) Trust it. Many times my clients will wonder if this is their intuition at work. Only you can decide that it is your intuition. Just trust it is and it makes it so. Believing is powerful energy and draws to you opportunities and people just from your conviction. Wavering or scattered energy gets mixed and confusing results. Trust your guidance and watch the impact and power.
Bonus: My bonus recommendation is to remember to "practice." Intuition is powerful but it's not something you can just turn on. It takes practice to develop your attunement to your guidance and practice to trust it and put it into practice.
By developing your sense of your intuitive guidance system and trusting the inspired actions which result, you will soon feel a deep sense of clarity and confidence and will be able to tap into the creative flow that is always available to you. This inner skill is what successful business owners have relied on for years -- in spite of all the information in the world.
