self-care foundations Apr 06, 2018
When I was little, my Granny and Grandpa lived on an acreage in Ontario they called Green Haven. We used to drive across Canada to visit them there in the summer.
During one of those visits, I remember hearing about how they had been robbed. Someone had broken into their home and stolen many of their valuables, but not my Granny's expensive jewelry.
She explained that she had heard her little voice tell her to hide it and she did. The robbers didn't find it and so she kept what was most precious to her.
There was no further explanation of the little voice, but the idea stuck with me, mainly because I thought I didn't have one.
It wasn't until my 30s that I learned about intuition as a concept. Still, I didn't believe I was intuitive because I didn't "see" or "hear" any kind of guidance.
Then I went to a hypnotherapist who told me that there were 3 kinds of intuition:
Soon after that, I discovered that I actually was intuitive. I had been feeling and knowing things for years, but since I didn't know that was a thing, I discounted it.
Since then, I have actively worked on increasing my intuitive abilities and now I experience all 3 kinds regularly.
Life is so much better with intuition!
That's why Courageous Self-Care Foundation #11 (yes, we have made it all the way to #11 of 12!) is Learning to Access & Trust Your Intuition.
Accessing intuition is one thing, learning to trust it and act on it is a whole other story.
I've had some pretty interesting experiences with my intuition and what it has guided me to do. That's where the courage comes in.
Intuition isn't linear. It often doesn't coincide with our plans.
When we learn to trust our intuition and take action, our lives become absolute magic.
We will explore this Foundation in more depth later this year on the Courageous Self-Care Podcast.
In the meantime, I invite you to tune into an episode that I recorded recently. It features my intuitive friend Kim Julen, who got some very unexpected guidance that dramatically changed her life for the better.

Before you head off to do other things, I'm curious to know which kind of Intuition is strongest for you? Would you say you're clairaudio, clairvoyant or clairsentient? Please share in the comments.
Lots of love to you,
