Intuitive Injury

Do You Have An Intuitive Injury?

Do you have an intuitive injury? This concept popped up after a client said to me: “I used to be intuitive but I’m not anymore.”

Welcome to the Left Brain Intuition Podcast. My name is Elise. I’m the Left Brain Intuitive, and today we’re talking about trust. Do you trust your intuition? this is such a mine field subject because there’s a lot of misconception about what what intuition requires to be functional if we think about intuition as a tool.

So your Intuitive Mind is a decision making tool just like your Logical Mind. What does this tool need to function properly? And I have a very vivid memory of the first time that I realized how tricky trust was and it was with a client and she just had an intuitive insight.

And she’s telling me, but I have to trust it, right? Now the question mark was that giveaway, that something was weird was going on here. But what happened is that I could see that there was this incoherence between the words that she was saying and her energy. 

So basically the thing that she was feeling and, and that was happening inside of her body and this incoherence is not a very good decision making strategy because it’s basically you’re pressing the gas and the brakes at the same time on the car. That’s that incoherence when you’re saying something, but you don’t really believe It’s a lot more effective when you’re, you know, just pressing the gas with everything you’ve got.

And so I wanna clarify that. I wanna talk about that because this is such an interesting topic. And the reason I love talking about this, because I struggled in this area myself for many years, and it made such a difference when I found clarity about trust, you know? So the tricky part is that trust is not blind faith.

And as you evolve on your journey completing intuitive cycles, you know, so where you go through all the steps involved in an intuitive cycle so you can, access your intuition. So you can retrieve an intuitive insight, and then you can activate your intuition. So you can trigger it on demand even when you feel lost.

And then you can align it with your specific goals so it’s relevant information. And then the fourth step is you, you accelerate, so you take a decision based on an intuitive insight. So trust is in that very fourth step here. But it, I wanted to start with that because it’s so critical.
So over the course of the evolution of your intuitive skills, what I found is that it changes. So in the beginning, let’s say that you’ve might have received intuitive insights. You might have gotten had an intuitive experience, but you don’t really have a lot of experience taking action based on it.

So at that point, you, you don’t have a lot of trust. . And so your Logical Mind is looking at this thinking, yeah. You know, that information that come from the Intuitive Mind is interesting, but I’m not willing to, you know, to take a, a big step just based on that. I don’t trust it. And that’s okay. This is where we start.

This is where we start. And I think the misconception is that somehow we’re supposed to have faith really early on in that process of intuition and instead, I’d like to offer this, this alternative strategy. What if instead you had whatever trust you have right now, so maybe you have 17% trust right now in your intuition because you did some stuff that turned out good.

So that’s where the 17% comes from. What if you receive an intuitive insight and you decide to do nothing? You choose to receive the information but not take action based on it.. Now right away, this solves a very important problem right away. This relieves the logical mind because the logical mind does not wanna be obligated to do something based on information it doesn’t trust.

So when you are at this level at the beginning of your intuitive journey, it’s okay that you agree to receive information, but you’re not committed to taking action. It releases that pressure. So let’s say that this is where you start. You just receive information. You just receive information.

Now, the second step of this strategy is that now you receive information and you go, oh, that’s interesting. And then you choose to take a small step, make a small decision with a small risk, and then you take a lot of those and you pay attention to what happens.. So what’s a small risk? So let’s say tonight you wanna go out and your husband says, well, where do you wanna go?

He can take a small, intuitive decision saying, okay, I have these two places that I can go. Which one feels better to me intuitively? and there’s ways, you know, to, to take this decision. Let’s say that, that, you know, Thai food sounds better tonight to you intuitively. Now you go to Thai restaurant and it happens so that that night they have a special you love what that, whatever dish that is, and it’s awesome.

You get that and it’s absolutely awesome. This is what I call a WIN . You know, intuition had a win here because it said, go this way and there was something really good there for you. Now your Logical Mind is paying attention to this. It’s paying attention and it’s going, oh cool. So when we’re deciding on restaurant, it’s okay to ask intuition that for subconscious information and see what comes out of that.

That might bring some, you know, positive outcomes. And right now, now you have 23% trust . Now the next level is that you start to take bigger and bigger decisions in increasing level of risk. So maybe next time you’re willing to take a medium decision with a medium amount of risk what would that be?

Let’s say that you’re looking for a job and you’re applying for a job and there’s like, I don’t know, the first time you look on in Indeed, there’s like 47 jobs and right there in the moment, you’re overwhelmed. You’re like, wow, this is a lot of jobs. And then you think, okay, well what if I prioritize three of them intuitively, I’m just gonna look down the list and I’m gonna say, oh, this one and this one. Without even reading the description. You know, that’s a very interesting way to use your intuition. And you pick the three that intuitively feel good to you and you let the rest sit there cuz you can come back to it, right?

So there is a risk, but at the same time, there is a really good potential outcome. And then you pay attention to what happens with these three.

So this is a medium size risk and then eventually you’re comfortable taking bigger size risks. So when I bought I bought a piece of land. It was 10 acres in the middle of the woods and it was very cheap because for the last six years that had been dropping at price cuz nobody was interested in it because it didn’t look like it was buildable.

It was on a, basically a rock hill, but it was overlooking a lake. You couldn’t see the lake though, cause there were trees in the way, and that’s why the price kept dropping. I bought this property based entirely on my intuition and that was a 65 k decision. . And the reason I was able to do that was because I had so many small and medium and big size decision I had before that I had built my trust so that I could take this really big decision.

Of course my Logical Mindset says, well, we have a backup plan. If that doesn’t work, we can sell it back to that very low price. Cuz you know, it, it had gone from like, I think 150 K to, you know, 65. That’s how you build trust with larger and larger decision. Now, where does faith come in? Faith comes in later.

There will be a point, and I’ve seen several people, I have gone through this myself, and I’ve seen other people also reach that point where you have gotten enough proof, you have gotten enough proof over and over again, and there’s no amount of proof now that will lead you to the next step. because the next step is to start to have faith that whenever intuition shows up, there is a very good reason for it, and it’s important to pay attention.

And there’s a big payoff if you do, and the faith means that you don’t have proof right now that this decision will work. And it’s true, we don’t have that because intuition does not predict the future. So we don’t have that. We don’t have that proof that this decision will work however, You have built your faith through increasing levels of trust, which did have proof , which is why it’s important to pay attention to your WIN, to what’s what happened after you took that intuitive decision?

Now I think it, it took me, I don’t know. 15 years before it came to that point where it was time to have faith and to just jump. So now I take exponentially larger decision based on my intuition, and I get exponentially more interesting results out of them. So there’s, there is a, a nice payoff here when you’re in the faith phase.

But don’t start there. Don’t force your mind to have faith in the process in which you have not built trust yet. That’s just scary as hell. don’t do that because you’ll be in a state of incoherence. You’ll be pressing the brakes and the gas at the same time and, and it’s not gonna give you the results that you want and it’s gonna be disappointing.

Okay, so intuition and an action, which is a little segment where it tune in and I come up with one thing that you can do today to leverage your intuition.

Here’s the thing that you can do today.

Decide that you’re going to get an intuitive insight today, even if you don’t know how, and even if you, you know, you can’t trigger it on demand normally, that’s fine. Just decide today that you’re gonna receive an intuitive insight. So it might be an emotion. You might have a gut feeling. You might have a an idea pop in your head, you might see an image.

Those are all the ways that intuition can talk to you, the ways that intuition favors talking to you. You’re gonna receive an intuitive insight, and you’re gonna choose to take a small risk decision today based on this intuitive insight, and that’s your intuition in action for today. All right. So if this episode resonated with you today, I would love it if you would leave me a review for this podcast because it’s important to me that my work is meaningful, not just to me because it is, but to you.

It’s important to me that my work is meaningful to you. And so when you hear something that resonates with you, when you have a moment of clarity, either because of something I said or because something I said made you think of something else, it’s a WIN for me, it’s a win for me.

So, I would love to hear your comments on that and get a review on this podcast, and I will talk to you soon.
