4 Step Plan to Cultivate Trusting Your Intuition

Do you trust your decisions? Or, do you find you second guess yourself?

Until I learned how to trust my intuition, I used to second guess my decisions.

Now, I stop myself before asking someone else’s opinion.

It’s not to say the other person’s opinion doesn’t matter, because maybe they are a subject matter expert on what you’re deciding on, but regardless, I invite you to check in with yourself first, and go from there.
So why do we feel the need to turn to others?

Why do we think they know more about what we want for our life than we do?
In a nutshell, not being able to trust ourselves often comes from chronic self-doubt and imposter syndrome to indecisiveness and low self-esteem.

Here are a few things that can get in the way of trusting our intuition:

  • Overthinking
  • Shoulds
  • Prejudices & unconscious bias
  • A loved one or a person in an authority role – their wants, needs, opinion
  • Previous trauma/abuse in childhood

The good news is that yes, we can learn how to listen to our inner wisdom – our intuition.

Our intuition is a muscle that gets stronger with every decision we make.
“The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are so certain of themselves and wiser people so full of doubts.”

(Bertrand Russell)

Here’s a 4-step plan that can help cultivate trusting your intuition:

  1. Slow down and clear your mind.
  2. Notice how your body is feeling.
  3. Ask yourself: “What’s important to me right now?”
  4. Take action without second guessing your decision.

The Choose Happy affirmation cards help us trust our intuition.

With every positive statement, the question on the back of the card “triggers” us to check in with our intuition on what we should do next that is aligned with what we really want, not what others expect of us.
