Listen to Your Body and Make Wise Decisions

Your intuition helps you make wise decisions through intuitive feelings and sensations that rock your body without external stimuli. Whether you consider buying or selling a home, establishing or closing a business, continuing or changing a career, or starting or ending a relationship, notice how your body intuitively feels when you decide for or against an issue.

You can intuitively feel high energy, peace or relief after making wise decisions. Your heart sings. Smooth breaths reveal optimal choices. I contemplated relocating from Virginia and buying a home in Georgia. I intuitively felt peace shower my body and made plans to move from my apartment. Despite a job firing and moving accident, I landed a telecommuting job and bought a beautiful home in a historic area. My injury healed, and social and business opportunities increased.

You can intuitively feel low energy, resistance or dizziness after making unwise decisions. Your heart sighs. Uneven breaths reflect poor choices. I reviewed a listing of local doctors and arranged an appointment with one located thirty minutes from my home. I intuitively felt resistance in my body and realized why when I encountered her incompetence. I selected a different doctor, and relief greeted me.

Have you ever chosen to go for a walk and intuitively felt safe or threatened? Turned onto a highway and intuitively felt on or off course? Loaned money to a coworker and intuitively felt repayment or loss? Picked up a phone to call a relative and intuitively felt warmth or coldness? Multiple decisions invite themselves into your life each day. Perhaps you choose to sleep longer, remain silent, or avoid others; these are decisions you make, sometimes in seconds.

A friend intuitively felt a breath of fresh air and an intense connection when she met a man at a dance club. She also intuitively felt deja vu, as if she already knew him. She decided to date him and six years later, they’re still happily together. Another friend scheduled her outpatient surgery and intuitively felt a gut feeling to pick another day. She declined and contracted a deadly infection that required a year of painful recovery.

Knowing which intuitive feelings and sensations work in your favor is critical. Keep an updated list in an intuition journal. Remember which intuitions alerted you to both positive and negative experiences, because each day brings similar or new experiences. What did it cost you when you made unwise decisions that were long-lasting or irreversible? Did you criticize yourself for ignoring your intuition? Replay events with alternative outcomes? Suffer insomnia or nightmares? Battle damaging or life-threatening situations? Pay the cost no more. Effective intuitive techniques aid your decision-making process.

The comfort zone technique helps you measure your comfort level when facing options. For example, you consider attending a financial management course. Rate your comfort level from one to four. One and two represent high and low discomfort, respectively. Three and four represent low and high comfort. How do you intuitively feel about attending the course? High or low discomfort signifies the course is too expensive, untimely, or unsuitable for you. High or low comfort signifies the course is reasonably priced, timely, or appropriate for you.

The sensory signaling technique helps you detect a pleasant or unpleasant feeling or sensation when weighing your options. For example, you consider taking a vacation and read brochures related to countries of interest. For each country, ask yourself, How do I intuitively feel about traveling there? An excited feeling or soothing sensation indicates travel pleasures such as enjoyable tours, fine dining, or rest and relaxation. A red flag feeling or gnawing sensation indicates travel frustrations, such as adverse weather, lost luggage, or shoddy accommodations.

If you listen to your body, your intuitive feelings and sensations, you’ll benefit from wise decisions and save yourself time, energy, money and regret.
