Let Your Intuition Guide You to Prioritise
Choosing your priorities varies from person to person. We're all
different and our priorities, both personally and
professionally, will be individual to us. So often, it's too
easy to go off at a tangent and set priorities which we think
are important, yet are often someone else's idea. To set
priorities that work for us and are easier to follow through, we
need to choose our own priorities. To find out what's really
best for you, listen to your intuition. In other words, listen
to your heart, your inner voice and trust your own instincts.
Intuition comes from inside you and is therefore totally in tune
with you as a person.
Your intuition will guide you perfectly to choose your
priorities - if you listen to it. It's too easy to discount what
your intuition says. Using your left-brain, the logical and
rational side, is a great way to prioritise your life and it's
even more powerful when you combine it with listening to your
right brain, the intuitive part. Your intuition quickly tells
you things and if you pay close attention to it, you will make
better choices and faster decisions.
Your intuition will show up in thoughts, feelings, images and
dreams. You may experience your intuition actually in your body,
often referred to as gut instinct, or gut feelings. You will be
able to listen to your intuition in any of these ways and for
most of us, there is one dominant way in which our intuition
shows up. You may already know for yourself how you experience
your intuition but if not, pay attention to all the different
When you're prioritising your to-do list, a project or other
aspects of your life, one way to access your intuition is to ask
it a question. Questions such as, "What is a priority for me at
the moment?" or "What can I let go of for the time being?" There
are many more questions you can come up with and I suggest you
ask yourself the question and then relax, and see what happens.
The answer won't always show up immediately but at some point it
will. The answer will often come when you least expect it. For
instance, when you're in the shower, drifting off to sleep or
waking up, or involved in a completely unrelated task. Remember
- after you've asked the question, you must be aware of all the
ways your intuition can respond to you.
When you've received a response from your intuition, you need to
act on it. I've found that it's trusting, relying on and acting
on your intuition that's the hardest part for most people. If
this is new to you or you want to develop it further, it's just
like anything else that you want to be able to do well. You must
practice. Intuition is a muscle that needs to be exercised and
the more you use it, the stronger your faith in it will become.
At first you may just want to take small steps when acting on
your intuition. These small steps can be built on as time goes
by and your confidence in yourself and your intuition builds.
Your intuition is guidance from your higher self and has your
best interests at heart. Choosing your priorities by following
your intuition means you're choosing what is really right for
you. You're not so likely to be pulled between different
