There are times not to trust your gut, at least not without some checkpoints in the process.
Intuition uses the right brain and third eye to tap into the subconscious and the information around us to provide guidance. However, the lens we use to view the world around us can get muddy at times.
If our life is in overdrive chaos, we’re in a mental health crisis, our physical health is debilitating, we’re in an addictive grip, or there’s a significant trauma wound that we’re using as our north star, our lens is likely to be muddy.
But even if our life is reasonably on track, we’ll have muddy days. The energy for the next couple of weeks has some precipitous push/pulls to it. The word that comes to mind is ‘whipsaw’: to subject to two opposing forces at the same time or to move quickly between two directions.
When we’re in the midst of strong push/pull energy, hypervigilance can poke our intuition to jump to a conclusion so we will just ‘do something’. Sometimes it goes ok, but other times we end up jumping into something even more unsteady.
If we can step back a bit from all the noise, our intuition will better be able to feel what’s in the undercurrent. A little more information will help us ask better questions. A second opinion can serve as a critical checkpoint for our decision making, especially in this current push/pull energy.
