Intuition As A Superpower
Starting from when I was 10 years old up until about, well, just recently, I was probably one of the least ‘emotionally intelligent’ people out there. I acted impulsively. I looked at what other people were doing, instead of asking myself what I wanted to do. I waited for confirmation from other people to tell me what I should do, what I should eat, and what I should buy. I continuously discredited myself.
Almost all of my years have gone by, and I have spent living a life that is not my own. It was my journey, yes, but it was not my authentic self.
This year, I decided to acknowledge that I was unhappy and unfulfilled. So, instead of looking outward, I turned inward, starting with my coffee order. Do I want a latte or a cappuccino? Coconut milk or oat milk?
It progressed. Do I really want to read this book? Do I really want to take this class? It was empowering to start asking myself these questions, and what happened when I did was even more empowering — plans came together easily and effortlessly. Drama left my life completely. I became happier, and more fulfilled.
Intuition isn’t something that can be bought or measured, and it doesn’t have to be justified, either. When you start to get to know yourself, your real self, life gets better. It becomes less complicated, and much, more more fulfilling.
