Video: How to tell the difference between fear and intuition
Usually it's when they're faced with following a passion or a dream - they might be thinking of taking a trip, starting a business, or changing careers.
What usually happens next is they start to doubt themselves - is this really what I want? Won't I have to sacrifice a lot? What will people think. And they get stuck because they're not sure if this is their intuition telling them that the decision is a bad one OR if it's the inner critic trying to use fear to stop them in their tracks.
If you've ever been confused about whether your intuition or fear is running the show, this week's video will give you the tools to tell which is which...
Here's those steps in writing:
1. Notice your physical experience as you weigh up your options if it's intuition you'll feel grounded and in your body - you'll feel calm, connected, and open. If it's your inner critic you'll feel more scattered and ungrounded, perhaps with a sense of energy buzzing around your head and shoulders (Anyone can feel these kind of sensations if you're willing to tune in!)
1. The inner critic makes a 'story' and jumps 10 steps ahead into the future (usually with anxiety attached!). You're stuck in fear town if you've gone into comparison, perfectionism, or 'what if's'. Intuition on the other hand is that initial instinct that is usually just one word or phrase of guidance. It's a gentle feeling or sense that you might enjoy something as opposed to the inner critic's story which is usually very verbal.
Make sure you share this with anyone you know who is being held back by that voice of fear.
