In a world full of uncertainty, how do we find freedom from fear?
For me life is one adventure after another. I enjoy the excitement of following my intuition and challenging myself to take on big goals, even if logical thought says I’m crazy. Living this way has it’s pros and cons. One pro is that I’m never bored. I can always find something new to explore and someone interesting to converse with. While constantly stimulating, living an adventurous life that’s full of surprises can also be terrifying. Not knowing what to expect in any given moment makes me have to constantly come back to my own center. In co-creating my life with the guidance of my intuition, I have to be my own rock. I can’t rely on the crumbling structures of modern society to hold me in place; they don’t work for me. Building a connection with my intuition allows me to explore this world in a courageous way and helps me to handle life’s surprises with more confidence and grace.
I’ve noticed many people around me going through their own unsettling surprises. The media is also reporting that our world is getting more and more unstable and chaotic with each passing day. Our government programs are failing; the way we are living and eating is making us sick; we are one of the most depressed and addicted nations in the world. What’s going on? Something needs to change, drastically and immediately. We need a new way of being in the world. We need to be able to hear our own inner voice through all of the madness of the external world.
How can we become our own rocks in this rapidly changing world?
Well, first of all, we must begin to trust ourselves. Our intuition is very quiet and can easily be missed or pushed aside if we think other people have more skill, knowledge or experience than us. The most important thing you can do in creating your best life is to learn to trust yourself as the expert of your life. Your gut will lead you toward joy and expansion. If you know in your gut that something is right for you, then you must follow that feeling.
There are ways to deepen the connection with our intuition. Being open and willing to try something new allows us to experience the power of our intuition. Travel is one of the greatest and fastest ways to open up to our inner voice. This world is loud. We need to escape to quieter, more soothing environments to hear ourselves. Connecting with nature has also shown to enhance our bodies’ healing capabilities and to make us happier.
Feeling supported as we nervously try new things will also help us grow into our greatness. That’s why all the best athletes have coaches– we need other people to see the greatness in us when we aren’t feeling it ourselves.
When we take time away from daily life and explore the world around us, we discover hidden talents and gifts. I’d love to help you find your hidden strengths and guide you toward a deeper connection with your inner self. Please join me and fellow Survivor Jenny Guzon-Bae for a 5 day/4 night adventure yoga retreat in the healing White Mountains of New Hampshire this June.
