What Intuition Sounds Like

Katrina Hahling

Years ago, in the midst of feeling completely lost, utterly useless and down in the dumps, I went researching (it's what I do). 

Into the Google Search bar I typed; 

'How to tell the voice of fear from intuition'?

See, when you are so caught up in your head and you've let all your voices have free range for two decades - well, there's a whole lot of warring going on up in your head. 

At this confused and complicated time of my life, the voice of Intuition was not apparent to me. 

Want to know why ?

Want to know what I learned from my research? 

(and I sincerely wish I could link that very blog but I can no longer find it)

I found a beautiful blog and one sentence struck my core and remains part of my biggest message today; 

Fear is the loud voice shouting while Discernment (Intuition) is a hand on your back gently guiding you, 'this is the way.'

Intuition speaks softly, in gestures, in symbols. Intuition requires your attention, your silence in order for it to be heard. 

Intuition requires practice. Like a muscle it must be built. If you are now, like I was then, so caught up in the voices of your mind, you have trained your Rational thinking mind to be strong. You have flexed that muscle. 

Now you must learn to flex your intuition. 

How? 

1. Daily card. Pick a card in the morning (Oracle Card) - choose just one and Journal on what you think/feel it means. 

At the end of the day journal on what actually happened. 

2. Guessing games - play with fast games where you don't think too much about it first. What colour is the car that's about to come around the corner ?Who's the next person who will call you. 

3. Take yourself on an intuitive trip. Could be a 20 minute walk or a half day drive... or longer... simply go where you feel drawn. At every intersection take the turn that feels best for you. Play with this. Enjoy the process. Trust that you are heading in exactly the right direction. 

4. Trust yourself.  I know this can be hard and the best piece of advice I've ever read about this is --- don't beat yourself up if you're Intuition is wrong, if you get it wrong. Practice Self-Compassion here.

Let go of these to FEEL BETTER about yourself...

Katrina Hahling

Got that knot in your chest? Feeling a little (or a lot) meh? You know, mopey, procrastinating, watching series on netflix back to back, feeling stuck, moping around the house... 

You've got a project you want to work on - application to study, a book you want to write, a business you want to start but you can't get yourself together enough to actually start (or continue) the damn thing. 

I guarantee you'll feel BETTER if you quit engaging in the following behaviours;  

1. COMPARING (Yep, Comparisonitis is a bitch and a  sure-fire method to keep you feeling small)
 

2. JUDGING OTHERS (Judging others generally means you don't accept that characteristic or behaviour, or you exhibit the behaviour or characteristic but aren't aware so you project it, or there could be a level of envy or resentment) 

 

3. Listening to the voice of FEAR rather than DISCERNMENT (hint: fear shouts while discernment whispers) 

 

4. Playing the BLAME GAME (you could be avoiding accepting responsibility... among other things) 

 

5. Engaging in VICTIM MENTALITY (what about me???)
 

6. PEOPLE PLEASING -- Get your FREE DOWNLOAD, 3 steps to stop people pleasing by clicking here

 

Becoming more aware of yourself - your thoughts and your behaviours - will enable you to see if you are engaging in these kinds of behaviours... 
 

If you're reading this and identifying these behaviours but you're wondering, how the hell do I shift that? Start by just changing your state. Turn off the TV and on the music - dance, practice yoga, jump around. Take yourself on a walk, a jog or a swim. Get under a cold shower if you have to! 

Pull yourself out of your slump because honey, no one else can do that for you! 
 

Pull out your pen and paper and remind yourself of who you really are
— Katrina Hahling

1. Begin with a fountain of GRATITUDE. Acknowledge and appreciate all the good in your life and about yourself. Be specific. Eg. I'm grateful for the hair on my head, my blue eyes that see well, for my healthy body, my legs that walk me everywhere, my body that bends when I practice yoga... and on and on and on.... 

2. Write about everything you have achieved and accomplished so far. 

3. Write out your dreams in positive, active language as though they are a reality NOW. What do you want in all areas of your life? How do you want to feel, who do you want to be, how do you want to spend your time? 

(if you're feeling really down and this is wayyy too far, take it a step back. eg. Instead of staying "I earn millions of dollars" if you currently don't have a job and that seems ridiculous write about how abundant the world is and you know that there are lots of people in the world who were once in your position and now have millions so you can do it too. That you know you have a wealth of abundance within you to create and share)


4.. Write one action you will do today that will take you closer to this dream. One small step. 

Go and do that one thing. Go, now. 

Write your way home, 

Katrina

Your answers for you, You're welcome!

Katrina Hahling


 

Don’t know what to be when you grow up?

Don’t know what your purpose is?

Don’t know what to do next?

 I call bullshit.

And you know what? 

//SPOILER ALERT//

I don't have all the answers for you like I promised in the title..


But YOU DO. 

Deep down, you know. You know AND You ALWAYS have known. 

You're just letting other voices get in the way. Read: Fear, doubt, limiting beliefs... lies.

But here’s the truth

You get to choose.
 

Here’s the key to that sentence – YOU GET TO CHOOSE.

 

In every single moment, in every single situation – even if you don’t feel it is this way – you have a choice. You get to choose. Always.

So why are you running around trying to fill yourself with quick fixes, trying to quiet that inner voice with social media, books, conversation, alcohol, junk food, tv?

What you really need?

Where the answers lie?

 

In your heart.

Right there.

Walking around with you every moment of every day.

Your heart.

Keeping you alive and speaking to you in quiet gestures.

If only you could silence the noise.

If only you could say no.

No to distraction.

No to procrastination.

No to friends (from time to time)

No to alcohol.

If you could sit still, be with your heart.

 

If you would listen.

Really listen.

 

Your answers, your meaning, your purpose, your next move, your next choice? It’s right there.

Just ask and Listen In well.

Your heart is always speaking to you. 

So pull out your pen and paper and let it speak to you. 

 

From my dear heart to yours,

Katrina
