This past week has been filled with spring cleaning, rethinking, and new inspiration. I am working on new projects, new opportunities, new ideas. The saying “out with the old and in with the new” fits perfectly for me these days. As my latest project is still in the works today will be dedicated to discussing the second lesson I learned in 23 years.
2. Your heart will always tell you if something feels wrong
Over the years I have had experiences that may not have been enjoyable or been in situations that I didn’t want to be in. There were times where I ignored the feelings inside of me that told me if something felt wrong. I think that all of us, at one time or another, have felt this. I have been in situations where in my heart it felt wrong, that feeling you can’t really put your finger on but that urges you to feel that something is off or not right.
There are a lot of sayings about the heart, about what it can tell you, make you feel, etc. Whether you think it is your heart, intuition, guides, soul, etc. there is something within all of us that will alert us to a situation that does not serve us. That nagging feeling that sits in the back of your mind, just poking its head up every so often and making you feel uncertain of what you think and feel about a situation.
It could be very simple things, like saying yes to going somewhere or an interaction with a particular person. It can also be for much more complicated things, such as a relationship, a job, or a big life decision. All these things can have a large impact on life, they can change things drastically or minimally, but they are always important. When I feel that nagging feeling in the back of my mind I used to ignore it, not realizing that it was a very important warning from my hear/intuition.
These feelings often fester and grow into feelings of resentment, sadness, anger, frustration and a whole host of other emotions that could go along with difficult situations. I have had experiences that have left me crying for days, feeling lost and confused, and wanting to just stop and take a break from life. When these moments happen I have to take a breath and listen to my heart. When I listen to my heart I find that it will often tell me what is wrong and why it is wrong for me. This may not always happen and may not come easy, but it is a way for me to find myself again and decide what path to take next.
So, next time you feel uneasy, confused, stuck, or frustrated see if your heart/inner self/intuition is telling you something. See if there is a message waiting to be heard, listen to it, and see where it takes you.
