It is safe to say that the current state of the world has opened the door for an increase in fear and anxiety among many people. It can be hard to figure out how to find peace among the chaos. It is normal to have a fight or flight reaction to these new stressors caused by the pandemic, but finding common ground can help you attain calm and move forward during stressful times.
Have you ever wondered why your intuition is sometimes referred to as a “gut feeling”? If you have ever noticed when you are scared or excited, a tingling or sensation in your stomach, you know why. Your intuition is always there, wanting to guide you and communicate with you.
We often rely on our head, heart, and gut to solve issues in our life, but when it comes to stress or fear, our intuition rarely leads in the wrong direction. Your intuition can be your best guide during times of fear, stress, or worry. It can also be your best ally when courage is called for in a situation. Listen to what it is trying to tell you and trust yourself enough to know you will be alright.
It has been said that “a quiet mind is able to hear intuition over fear”. If you find yourself in a stressful situation and are overwhelmed, get somewhere quiet, and reset. You can only truly access your intuition with a calm, clear head.
Find ways to get to this place by walking, yoga, breathing exercises, and meditation. Decrease external distractions so you can solely focus on you. This includes the opinions of others around you. One of the biggest distractions we have is relying on the idea’s others have of our decisions, instead of being confident in our intuition. Once you are at peace you can more easily listen to your intuition and let it guide you in the right direction.
