When all the over thinking and analysing stops we discover there is a central part of ourselves, which knows the answer. That’s intuition. So why bother with the over thinking in the first place?
I have discovered that many people don’t use their intuition because they don’t want to be responsible for acting on it. Over thinking can be a procrastination tool to avoid doing something to change a situation that you will be accountable for, which is scary if you think there is any chance of it going wrong!
I’m often asked by clients ‘What am I meant to do?’ For there to be a ‘meant’ then there has to be someone on the other end of meant who has a meaning for you. This implies that if you don’t react correctly to this secret mission, you’ll get it wrong and your whole life will run off track and the testy blighter who came up with the secret mission will be very cross with you indeed!
This is giving your power of free will away. The issue with this is that free will is unavoidable.
You have free will and you have to make choices and even if all of your choices are not good ones, you still have to choose.
Not cutting straight to the answer can cause more pain in the long run. Starting with your intuitive knowing and then looking for evidence that it’s the right decision for you, is easier that getting knotted up in procrastination of an indigestible truth.
So next time you find yourself in a tangle of over thinking, stand still for a moment, put your hand on your heart and simply ask ‘What does love say to this?’ Stay still until the tension in your body shifts. It’s like an out breath of emotion. You then have your answer, you might not be able to put it into words, but you’ll know what’s right for you.
