A few weeks ago I had this uneasy feeling in my stomach. I knew my intuition was trying to tell me something and I could not put my finger on it. Regardless I know that these feelings meant something and I should not ignore them. Our inner compass ( our heart, our Gut, God ) is here to guide us.
If you are reading my blog then I am sure you are like minded and can identify when these feeling come up in yourself as well. In the past when I felt uneasy I would automatically assume it meant something bad was going to happen. Now I remember that an uncomfortable feeling can actually mean a huge growth spurt is on the way. Growing is totally uncomfortable. Personally I like to talk about my feeling ( my poor husband) and I think I told Dave like 4 times ” I have a weird feeling in my gut, it must mean a growth spurt is happening ”
I was started to get frustrated because the feeling was lingering and I was ready for this lesson or shift to just happen already so I could move on! Nothing was happening. I traveled to Italy to shoot a wedding and then spent a few days wondering around Italy by myself. It was there that the lesson revealed itself. I can get into what my lesson was/is later. I wanted to share the more important part. The silence and slower pace that needed to happen before I could “HEAR” what my inner compass or God was trying to tell me. Yeah I know we can’t all jump on a flight to Italy when we feel need a mini vacation but there are a few things we can do. Connect with nature, drive to work without the radio on, write in your journal instead of watching TV. I encourage you to welcome that uncomfortable feeling and turn the outside world down so you can hear what the inside world is trying to tell you.
