💬 ADVENTUROUS WISDOM
“Your time is limited, don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinion drown your own inner voice.”— Steve Jobs
An entrepreneur who valued intuition and was an avid practitioner of Zen meditation, which he used to quiet his mind and access his intuitive wisdom.
🥠 TRAIL SNACK
Was that instinct, impulse, or intuition?
The difference is subtle, and discerning between the three requires close attention. So let's break it down:
Instinct is an unconscious emotional reaction.
🤯 The hiker instinctually reacts to danger.
Impulse is an unreflective desire to act.
🤤 The hiker impulsively reaches for a cookie.
Intuition is an unconscious understanding.
😃 The hiker intuitively knows which path to take.
Intuition feels like an exact knowing within a moment. It is a sudden understanding that is based on what one feels to be true even without conscious reasoning.
Intuition is revealed by attuning to the truth of what makes us feel good, what scares us, what triggers us, what makes us feel more connected. These moment-to-moment insights enlighten us to what is most accurate and true for us exactly where we are, exactly as we need it.
By deepening our connection to our free Inner Being, our intuition grows louder and the next best steps on our adventure become clear and invite us forward. With practice, we begin to trust in our Self more and move out in faith. Even falling down becomes a welcomed practice that helps us deceipher between intuition, impulse, and instinct.
🔭 LAW OF NATURE
Studies show how spending time in nature amplifies our intuitive wisdom. Researchers have found that participants who spent time in natural settings, disconnected from technological distractions, exhibited heightened intuitive abilities and a deeper connection to their inner selves.
Science affirms what our souls have always known—there is a natural harmony that exists between our inner worlds and the outer environment. When we align with nature, we more easily tune into the intuitive signals that guide us in making aligned decisions.
ACTION STEP: Make a point to spend some time in nature—whether it’s a walk in the park, sitting by a body of water, or even tending to a houseplant. Tune into your senses. Listen to the sounds around you, feel the textures, inhale the scents. As you immerate yourself in this sensory experience, open your inner ear to any intuitive whispers or nudges.
You are not separate from nature; you are a part of it, and it is a part of you. As you attune to its rhythms, you'll find that your intuitive voice becomes clearer, easier to decipher, and more trustworthy.
📿 TRAIL MANTRA
Trust the whisper within.
There's a potent truth in these simple words. Your intuition—your inner whisper—has been your lifelong companion, even when you've doubted or ignored it. This whisper is a blend of wisdom and foresight, your built-in guidance system. As you navigate the terrain of your adventure today, let these words be your north star. Every time you encounter a choice point, a moment of uncertainty, or even a chance to celebrate, silently repeat, “Trust the whisper within.” It serves as a touchstone, grounding you back to your intuitive core, reminding you that you already possess all the insight you need for your journey.
Let this mantra resonate throughout your day, serving as a call to listen to, trust, and act upon your own intuitive wisdom.
🧘 MINDFUL MOMENT
Let's take three deep, nourishing breaths. Inhale deeply, filling your lungs and expanding your belly. Exhale slowly, releasing any tension you might be holding.
Imagine yourself standing at the entrance of a serene forest. You're at a fork in the road, with two paths before you. One path is well-trodden, filled with signposts, familiar and comfortable. The other is less clear, mysterious, and untamed. As you stand there contemplating, you sense the whisper within you, gently steering you towards one path.
Tune into that whisper. How does it feel? Is it a voice, an emotion, a gut feeling? Let that intuitive guide become more vivid and more clear. Now, trusting this inner wisdom, take a step onto the path it indicates.
As you walk, notice how the environment reacts to your choice. The trees seem to sway in approval, the birds sing a little sweeter, and even the air seems to embrace you. You feel aligned, and as if every step you take is guided by a force larger than you. All the while, your intuitive whisper is there with you, reassuring you that you're exactly where you need to be, doing exactly what you need to do.
Finally, come upon a clearing in the woods. The space is bathed in warm, golden light, and you realize it's a sacred space for you. Here, your intuition is the loudest, your connection to it the clearest. Feel a sense of gratitude towards yourself for listening to your inner voice, for trusting your intuition.
Now, take a deep breath and gently start to bring your awareness back to your physical surroundings.
You're not just imagining this; you're preparing your mind and soul for the adventure of living intuitively. Take this feeling of alignment with you as you continue with your day, assured that your inner whisper will guide you through all the adventures that lie ahead.

🚀 INSPIRED ACTION
Reconnecting with our intuitive inner voice is a simple practice of awareness.
The way to get the inner voice of our intuition to grow louder is to look for it and listen to it. By trusting and depending on it more, the whispers grow louder.
Initially, ignoring the external ‘shoulds‘ and ‘shouldn'ts‘ and listening instead to our own inner knowing takes courage—especially if we've become accustomed to basing decisions on other people's opinions.
Intuition begins functioning when we accept that we don't really know what we think we know.
Intuition takes center stage when we stop pretending to know. When external voices and internal chatter become noiseless. When we allow the information that is everywhere, to be where we are.
When we don't claim to know something, we bring no pretext into the moment—then, within the very moment—the ‘what' needs to be known, becomes the ‘what' we intuitively know … presented in a way that's recognizable to our honest vacancy.
Intuition germinates within the silent intimacy of our felt senses.
It propagates as we release the noise of what we think we know. It blossoms in the awareness of the space between each heartbeat and breath.
