Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

~Steve Jobs

Every single one of us has a voice inside known as intuition. I don’t know if voice is a good description. For me it’s not a voice like someone talking to you—it’s more of an internal voice or a feeling of knowing the truth. Have you ever read something or heard someone say something, and it felt so truthful inside and you think, “I could of wrote or said that!” That’s intuition. My first experience with this was about seven years ago when I heard the quote by Gandhi, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”  When I heard that, it just resonated inside me as truth.


 What is intuition? It’s a voice from your soul and from God. And this voice will lead you to the person you were meant to be and to your dreams, purpose, and meaning. A question you might have is why can’t I hear this voice? There are two answers to this. The first reason is I believe we hear it, and we don’t like what’s being told to us. Most of the time it will be something that is completely opposite of all the thoughts we have been conditioned with since infancy. Your intuition could be saying, “Smile and say hi to this person,” and your thoughts could be saying, “This person looks weird, mean, and probably will think I’m nuts.” Or your intuition might say, “Give this homeless person some money,” and your thoughts might say, “I’m not giving them any money; they’re lazy and should get a job.” To follow your intuition, you will need to be courageous to listen to your intuition and override your thoughts.

The second reason is that it can’t be heard/felt with all the noise in your head— called thoughts. When our chattering mind is going crazy upstairs and we’re stressed, it’s impossible to hear our divine voice. Learn to quiet your thoughts and find the beautiful treasure inside you—your intuition.

Things to do to start hearing your inner voice:

  1. Take frequent walks in nature with new eyes—the eyes of a child—as if it’s the very first time you’ve seen anything.
  2. Mediate—there is nothing better for quieting your mind.
  3. Laugh—become a big kid and laugh like a child.
  4. Change—you know the things in your life you have to change to eliminate stress and start feeling great.

What changes can you make today to get closer to your divine voice?

Intuition will guide and lead you to be the person you were meant to be and to the life you were meant to have!!!
