Intuition can be a big help in making decisions, especially for empaths. Which I think I might be, because I have always been able to intuitively feel and perceive others, for good or for bad. When I was a kid I could read adults’ minds and it rather scared me, because I thought they could read mine, too. Good thing they couldn’t!
Intuition is something I’ve used unknowingly all these years. Not always, but much of the time. Because I think it can be an invaluable tool–and one that’s very under-estimated– I’ve been reading a lot about how to consciously harness it for decision-making.
I can’t remember where I read this technique but I like it:
Do this enough and you can learn to feel the answer in your body.
This is, of course, easier for empaths, because we are pretty attuned to how we feel about things. The challenge for me, though, is to try to stop my brain from dominating my intuition, because when it comes to making decisions, my brain wants to run the show. It doesn’t always, as some of my life decisions prove. But it sure gives it a go.
Meditation can help still monkey mind. I’ve yet to be consistent in my own meditation process, but it’s something I am getting more serious about this year because it’s part of the integrated imagery process for my class.
I’m interested in your own decision-making process: head or heart? And are the outcomes different?
