We live in a world where most of us want other people to give us the answers, make our decisions or tell us what to do.  
As someone who grew up in an empty room, I started out that way too. It didn’t take long however, for me to realize that the person who made the best decision for me, was me. I was the one I could trust most. So, I started a relationship with my wise mind…and yes, you have one as well. 
We have simply been taught not to listen to that part of ourselves. Yet, how many times have you said to yourself, I knew that would happen or I knew I should have gone there first, or should have believed what I thought in the first place. That wise mind you have is the intuitive, conscious and connected part of you. It’s actually a miracle maker and it can help you fulfill your purpose. Let me share an example.
On Saturday I realized my drivers license was expired and I kept getting this push to go immediately on Monday to get it renewed. I wondered what that urgency was about. Was I worried I’d get a ticket? What?  After a while just I gave in.
So, I got up at 6 am Monday morning and went to the DMV. I arrived at 7am and stood in line with about 15 other people. A sweet, round, young Hispanic man about 30 years old was sitting next to me and I kept getting the feeling of a little girl around him. 
She was very happy, holding a basket and playing with flowers. I didn’t say anything because other people were nearby. After we got in the building, I asked him, “Do you have a little girl in your life.” He said no. I said, “Did you ever?”  He thought a minute then said his sister had a child who died. I said, “She was a girl about 11 years old right?” He said yes and yesterday would have been her birthday. I said, “Well she wants you and your sister to know that she is incredibly happy. You know she only came to bring joy to your family right? He said yes. I said, “Well she wants you to tell her mommy to get more joy in her life.” He shook his head knowingly, got a bit teary, thanked me and promised he would tell his sister.   
The moral is when the Universe pushes; there is probably a reason even if you don’t understand. I use intuition as a main part of the work I do, but I almost never walkup to people and talk about it. However, this time the Universe didn’t just push…it shoved and I am so glad I listened. 
Most of the time the messages you may intuit, receive, hear in your head or simply feel, are going to be messages of guidance for your decision-making and life. We get information in all of those ways and no one way is better than the other. However you receive the guidance, empower that and don’t compare it to how others receive information.
The point is that your wise mind is the best friend you have. It knows so much more than what you are cognitively aware of and it ALWAYS wants what is best for you. Want proof? Just ask yourself when was the last time you took a job, got into a relationship or bought something that your wise mind told you not to, and when you did it anyway, you ended up cleaning up the mess for months…or years?
When you are listening, your wise mind will always be right, even when you don’t always understand why or how. How do you know it’s your wise mind and not your ego speaking? It speaks without judgment for you or another. It speaks in ways that create greater connection and safety for you and others. And, it always creates more love and peace in your life in the end. The more you listen, the more you will trust every little and mighty shove.
