That Funny Little Voice in Your Head
Out of nowhere I would be driving to work and start crying as I was about to turn
onto the street where my office was located.
How many times have you had that feeling deep in the pit of your stomach that tells you that something you are about to do is wrong? Maybe it’s just a little thought that passes through your mind or a voice that is trying to get your attention. How many times do we listen to the “little voice”? I was an independent person and I knew what was best for me. I don’t remember ever allowing that voice to keep me from doing what I wanted.
The crying on my way to work after I had become sick was my body telling me to stop going there; it isn’t safe for you. Yet I refused to listen to that voice. Was there a voice that told me not to start working in the first place? If it was speaking to me (and I think if probably was), I wasn’t listening. I was going to go to work. I was going to get dressed up and get paid for my daily efforts. I was going to have extra cash to do my hair, have manicures, and meet friends for lunch or shopping. No voice or funny feeling in the pit of my stomach was going to stop me.
After years of being sick and working through my depression, my anger, and my reactions, I learned how to listen to my body. I learned if I was very, very still I could ask my body if something was right or wrong for it. My energy balancing sessions helped to calm my body. I learned to ask questions of my body. During an energy session, I purposely asked my body if I could have a banana which I knew would cause an anaphylactic reaction. I immediately had this strange feeling in my head. It felt like an electric current going back and forth between my ears. I then asked if I could have something I knew was safe like a piece of buffalo for dinner and I didn’t get this sensation. Over the next few weeks I continued to test my theory and the signs my body would give me depending on the questions asked.
It isn’t always necessary to ask my body if something is right. I know now that when I get the feeling in my stomach, hear that little voice in my head, or just feel unsure about something, I need to listen. It isn’t always easy because I am still stubborn and don’t want to listen. Despite that little voice, I still want what I want. Not listening always gets me into trouble. Had that little voice been talking to me and I listened, I would not have written my story or used my voice to help others. I don’t believe in coincidences and I believe things happen for a reason. I was supposed to tell this story and bring awareness.
Listening to your gut feeling can serve you well in all aspects of your life. Should you go to the store and do shopping? Should you attend a special event? Should you join a club or promote your work with a particular promotional agency?
When has listening to your intuition paid off? When has not listening got you into trouble?
