You’re The Expert

Today we are surrounded by materials offering advice on how to create a meaningful relationship, a fulfilling career, a deep sense of spirituality, and a drop-dead gorgeous body…all perfect for you. There are medical doctors, scientists, and esteemed celebrities offering testimonies based on years of research and testing that prove their program is the one for you. Who are you to disagree? After all, they are experts.

Before you hand your life over to a stranger, take a moment to consider this: there is only one you. No one else on the planet has your unique combination of genetics, life experience, dreams, and longings. When we base our choices on information given to us by experts, we run the risk of shaving off pieces of our one-of-a-kind selves to fit into a formula.

You came in the door with a host of personal tools for helping you live out your life in ways that have meaning. The challenge for many of us is that our ability to interpret the signals we get from our inner guidance is underused and underdeveloped. Let this sparker be your invitation to get acquainted with your intuitive knowing.

Begin by writing this affirmation and placing it somewhere you will see it (a bathroom mirror is perfect): I am open to all signs that I am moving in the right direction.

For the next 21 days repeat this powerful statement to yourself and take notes on anything interesting that takes place. In the process you will be rewiring your awareness to pick up on the nuances of your daily life that have the power to shift your experience. By paying attention to how you feel when you move into action on a new idea, you will develop intuitive muscle.

Trust the insights you have. In no time you will be on your way to creating a personal guidance system you can use to guide you through any uncharted territory.
