How to distinguish between your fear and your intuition

June 28, 2021

Are you listening to your fear or your intuition?

It’s one of the most common mistakes I see. People are trying to make a decision and they want to listen to their intuition. So they listen to the signs of their body.

They ask themselves “How does it feel?”

And they notice a nervousness or tension in their stomach. So they conclude this thing is not for them, because their inner guidance told them so. Because it didn’t feel right.

I hate to break it to you but chances are that you just let your fear guide the way!

Your (ego) mind is trying to keep you safe. That’s its job. It needs to make sure you steer clear from danger. Your mind steers you away from uncharted territory because it doesn’t know its way around there.

Your brain has no map of this new place you’ve never been. It has no signposts or warning signals it can follow to safely navigate you through this new place.

So it pulls out the only tool it has left: your mind makes sure you don’t go there!

Because if you stay on the safe side of the fence, there is no need to worry. Over here your brain knows all the nooks and crannies.

Your brain gives off a signal of discomfort because it knows you’ll instinctively lean away from it. You’ll take a step back into your comfort zone in order to stop this unpleasant sensation.

If you’re tuning into your body to know whether you should move forward or not, and you check in and decide that this feeling of restlessness means you should stay put then you didn’t listen to your intuition but to your fear—instilled by your brilliant mind.

Your mind pulls strings behind the curtain all the time.

It has your best interest at heart, but in its overriding desire to keep you safe your brain keeps you from making some decision that would’ve been in your highest good.

That’s why it’s crucial to be able to tell the difference between your fear and your intuition.

You need to know when that sense of unease in your stomach is your gut instinct speaking to you, or simply an attempt of your mind to keep you safe and playing small.
