Why Is It So Hard To Trust Myself?

When you live in alignment with your truth, asking and acting on those intuitive answers, you are guided to choose more powerful experiences. An intuitively guided life is, quite simply, a more magical life.

When you’re ready, begin asking the big ones. Is it time to release this job? Do I want to have another child? Is this relationship true for me?

Don’t be afraid to ask, or to open yourself to the answers. This information does not command that you take immediate action, although sometimes that will feel true. Just ask, and be still until you hear what’s true for you. Sit with that knowing. Action is a separate step, one that will be taken in good time, and you mustn’t allow it to keep you from asking.

Your heart will speak the truth, and your brain will rise up to keep you safe, but always out of love. Never let your brain disregard your heart from a place of fear. For that matter, never let your heart disregard your brain out of a place of fear. No true action is ever taken from a place of fear. Act from love, always.

Until the heart and mind are as one again, be aware of their separateness, and wait for a response from both. And as you release and heal those old wounds, you’ll find that it’s easier to remember to ask for guidance. The answers will come more swiftly, loudly, and clearly. The self-doubt that used to settle over you, that discouraged you, has already begun to fade away.

Most importantly, Wild One, remember this. The most effective way to increase your intuition is to honor the messages you receive. When your gut says leave, leave. When you hear that it isn’t true, don’t do it. When it bubbles up that you miss someone, call them. When you feel called to take that class, go to that event, or connect with that particular individual — for the love of all things glittery — do it.

Take that action, for it is the sound of your intuition guiding you home.

Many have been abused and have little self esteem and let others dominate them.
Well Jane B., yes there is a long way women still have to go for full equality but I would rather be a women now than 200 years ago when women were still property, could not vote or do much without the approval of a male.

Of course, never trust your instincts if one is a sociopath-they never have any doubt about what they end up doing to others but for the rest of us we must learn to be gentle with ourselves, be fair and give ourselves allowances that we give to our own family and friends.

Most people have forgotten what they truely believe so when it materializes inside as an inner critic, or outside themselves as critical people, we get confused. I have found that if you will boldly accept that, in either case, it's coming from some conclusion you made, who knows when, as you observed and decided, whether it was based on false premises or somebody elses experience.The key is to accept responsibilty for cleaning it up so you don't keep 'stepping' in it.Never mind who made the mess originality, you can start saying, 'I believed this once and I've lived it too many times, and now, I'm done with it." Then use your imagination to put yourself on a better feeling path.
Redoing the same old rant just keeps you a victom and an energy vampire, always drawing attention to yourself and your personal vendetta.
