We are all intuitive, and we all receive guidance in the form of new creative ideas, nudges, and desires. But how do you know that you can trust the guidance you’re getting? You may have an urge to relocate, or a desire to change your career. How do you know if the guidance is “right?”

Usually my clients want to know where the guidance is coming from before they trust it. “Is it coming from a spirit guide, or is it coming from my higher self, and how do I know the difference?”

Trust Your Intuition

The truth is, it doesn’t really matter. As long as the guidance is good for you, it doesn’t matter where it’s coming from. There is only one thing here, anyway. That One Presence that moves in and through all creation is moving through you, the planet, and everything else that exits, including angels and spirit guides. There’s really no place where you end and something else begins. We could then say that all guidance is coming from You.

So how do you know whether to follow your own intuition?

searching for guidance

The easiest way is to run that guidance by your physical body. If you have an idea to change your career, how does that idea feel to your body? Your body is a psychic instrument designed to read energy. In response to an idea, your body will either feel energized and excited, or tired and drained.

If you feel tired and drained, the guiding energy is not in alignment with you. Most likely, it’s coming from your inner judge in the form of statements like: “I should do xyz.” That judgmental energy never feels good to the body, and all your energy and creative fire will drain out of you in an instant. That’s how you know that guidance is not truly in alignment with you.

When guidance is good, your physical body will feel energized and excited. You don’t need to know the details of how you make the changes you’re being led to make, you only need to know that the idea feels good.

These feelings of tiredness and excitement can be subtle, so close your eyes and really feel into your body as you consider new ideas.

When you’re stepping into the unknown, there will always be some fear. This is okay. Fear is not an indication that guidance is bad. Remember, if it’s truly not in alignment with you, you will feel tired physically. Fear can be a positive indication that you’re moving into the unknown.

The only thing to pay attention to is the energy level in your body. That determines whether the guidance is truly for your highest and best good.

Enjoy this new way of navigating the intuitive nudges you receive about your next steps in life!
