Your Intuitive Heart

I Knew It!!!

How many times have you said that to yourself? When your intuition was screaming at you, but you reasoned your way out of it? When you've given up on something too soon or not soon enough?

As writers, we are highly intuitive.

I want to challenge all of us to set aside some quiet time this week to clear our minds and listen.

Button the lips of that internal critic

Take note of your thoughts and then take action

If you are prompted to call a friend - do it. If you are prompted to spend more time here or there -- make it happen. If you are inspired in the direction of your writing - act upon that inspiration.

The more we act upon our intuitions, the stronger our intuitive hearts will become.
Tell me: How do you cultivate your intuition?????

Ooo. Good message. We need to trust our intuition. Yes. I follow that quiet time practice, which is good. The idea of being still and listening. Also, I don't think there are "chance" meetings. I think it's divine intervention.

I can't tell you all of the times I've dismissed my first instinct and discovered it was right on. I'm very good at out-thinking myself. I wish I had a better method of cultivating inner messages.

Too true. My intuition (and I'm male) has saved me many times. It's also helped me write, such as the times when I know something is wrong with a story but I just can't put my finger on it.

I love how you always say so much even when you use so few words. I think your way--the DOING--is the best way to cultivate our inner voice. I try to, but I needed the reminding today!

Thanks Tess!

This is a hard one, but something I've been working on lately. I have a hard time figuring out whose voice is whose in my head. But I'm learning that whether or not it was really my intuition, I never regret doing something thoughtful for someone else. So it's win-win. :D

Nice. I think we really do need to pay attention to our intuition. It's easy to get swept up in tasks or self-doubt.

Thanks for the reminder. I agree that writers have to trust their intuition, and use it well. :)
