Listening to Your Inner Guide
5 Ways to tap into and trust your intuition

Listening to your intuition is one of the most powerful assets you can carry in your saving account of personal development tools. But, it is one of the most difficult to tap into. Most of us do not trust our intuition fully. Not because our intuition has ever steered us wrong, quite the contrary. Has there ever been a time in you life that you have fully listened to your intuition and the net result was not positive? Yet, we all doubt our intuition even though it has served us well. I have found that the reason for this “doubting Thomas” syndrome lies in the fact that intuition defies our need for logic. There is nothing logic based in listening to a “gut feeling”. There are generally no facts to back it up; it is just a feeling. And in these times feelings are unfortunately easily dismissed.

Whenever you have an intuitive or gut feeling, you will probably get some sort of physical sensation like a fluttering feeling in your chest or a feeling in your stomach.

Whenever that feeling that your intuition has been stirred focus on this physical sensation. When you practice feeling your intuition your body and mind make a mental note of what is going on. With time and practice these feelings will become very apparent to you. And over time you will begin to trust them. I recommend that you write it down when you encounter these feelings it will affirm everything you are feeling and strengthen your trust.
When you repeat this process over and over your confidence in your intuition will grow and eventually you will learn to listen and trust completely.

Here are a few tips on how to get in touch with and trust your intuition:

1. Be quiet
Practice taking time out every day to experience silence. Calm your mind with traditional or active meditation. Release your need to think, analyze, and know everything. The best information comes from the deep recesses of your spirit.

2. Be open and receptive
Open to the gift of intuition and accept what is has to tell you. Many times, our ego thinks it has it “all figured out,” but your true path may look very different than the one you are on. Being open to new possibilities and ways of living is paramount.

3. Be creative
There are many ways to be creative, painting, writing, dancing, designing a web site, etc. Do something that helps you get into the “flow,” that place where time seems to fly by and the work is leading you. Creativity is an expression of your spirit and goes hand-in-hand with intuitive guidance.

4. Ask questions
When you ask yourself questions, you gain additional insight and clarity. When you ask a question like “What is the next step I need to take?” know that you already know what you need to know. Trust yourself. You already have everything you need inside.

5. Journal
When you write, you tap into thoughts, feelings, ideas and direction that you are not consciously aware of. Writing allows the truth to come forth and is an easy way to gain insight from your inner self.

Over a short period of time you will develop a level of trust and clarity in yourself and your feelings that you have never experienced before.

Have an excellent day.

The ABC's of Getting Fit

You must have the right attitude from the moment you start. Develop a success-orientated attitude and avoid negativity at all costs.

A is also for acceptance. In that you must accept the fact that fat loss is hard, because once you accept that it's hard you will take it more serious and commit to your fat loss nutrition and training plan, which ultimately makes fat loss a lot easier.

A is also for action. In that you must take action and apply what you know you need to do, because until you do it, it really doesn't matter what you know. Apply these 7 action steps starting today and start seeing results real soon!

You must believe that you will succeed and attain the body you want for the summer season. As the saying goes 'You must believe it, if you want to achieve it.' Develop the attitude and belief that this summer you are going to look your absolute best once you hit the beach and you'll have the confidence to wear the bathing suit of your choosing.

You must be consistent with your training and nutrition. Summer season will be here in approximately 12 weeks, which is enough time to make significant changes in your body, provided you are consistent with your training and nutrition from now onwards. There's no room for major errors. Small mistakes will happen, but repeated mistakes or major slip-ups are not acceptable.

Keep yourself hydrated! Don't forget to drink plenty of water! What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder . Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order stevia powder.

Set Yourself Free
Letting Go of Perfection

It is good to remember that one of our goals in life is to not be perfect. We often lose track of this aspiration. When we make mistakes, we think that we are failing or not measuring up. But if life is about experimenting, experiencing, and learning, then to be imperfect is a prerequisite. Life becomes much more interesting once we let go of our quest for perfection and aspire for imperfection instead.

This doesn’t mean that we don’t strive to be our best. We simply accept that there is no such thing as perfection—especially in life. All living things are in a ceaseless state of movement. Even as you read this, your hair is growing, your cells are dying and being reborn, and your blood is moving through your veins. Your life changes more than it stays the same. Perfection may happen in a moment, but it will not last because it is an impermanent state. Trying to hold on to perfection or forcing it to happen causes frustration and unhappiness.

In spite of this, many of us are in the habit of trying to be perfect. One way to nudge ourselves out of this tendency is to look at our lives and notice that no one is judging us to see whether or not we are perfect. Sometimes, perfectionism is a holdover from our childhood—an ideal we inherited from a demanding parent. We are adults now, and we can choose to let go of the need to perform for someone else’s approval. Similarly, we can choose to experience the universe as a loving place where we are free to be imperfect. Once we realize this, we can begin to take ourselves less seriously and have more fun. Imperfection is inherent to being human. By embracing your imperfections, you embrace yourself.
