Do the opposite of what you've always done

Free Intuition Training: Do the Opposite and Find Your Purpose

I first realized I was “different” when I was eight.

My sister, best friend and I were outside playing. My friend nonchalantly mentioned, “Did you know that XXX’s Daddy died?” I immediately heard a “voice” say, “He died of liver disease” which I repeated to my sister and best friend.

Later I told my mother that XXX’s Daddy had died of “liver disease.”

I recall my mother’s reaction as she demanded I tell her, “Who told you that?”

It was clear she was angry that I knew this which, I didn’t understand. I tried to tell her that I just “knew” but she wouldn’t believe me. She kept asking who told me?

She thought I was lying which upset me but I didn’t know what to say. I didn’t know who spoke to me in my mind? It was very confusing to an 8 year old.

I also understand now that back then people didn’t talk about alcoholism. It was taboo. My mother wasn’t so much angry at my “knowing” as she was worried about me going around the neighborhood saying that this man had died of “liver disease.”

Now I know that “voice” was my intuition. At 8 years old I had never heard that word. All I knew was that there was something different about me and how I got information that my mother thought was “wrong” so clearly it must be, right?

This started my life long struggle with trusting and following my intuition.

**********************

When I began my journey of sharing how listening to my intuition would impact my life five years ago (January 9th was PbI’s 5 year anniversary) I had no idea where I was headed.

My plan was to do the “opposite” of what I had been doing my entire life and chronicle how it affected me in my new blog: Powered by Intuition (which was originally called Mystic Musings & Meditations).

By 2010 I’d had enough of making the wrong decisions and being unhappy. I decided that from that moment on I would listen to my intuition for every single solitary decision I made.

I had gone into the wrong career, studied the wrong subject in college, married the wrong person, not gone on all the adventures I dreamed of like living in Europe and on and on and as a result I was stuck in a life I didn’t like at all. I realized that the problem was that I hadn’t followed my heart–my intuition. I had listened to other people for fear of making mistakes, being wrong and done what I thought “rational” and “sensible” people did instead.

Following my intuition from now on would be own my experiment of “doing the opposite.”

If you’re a Seinfeld fan you might recall the episode where George Costanza decides to do the exact opposite of what he’d been doing his whole life. He realized that every decision he made in his life had been wrong so, he does the opposite and and his life turns around.

So how has five years of following my intuition turned out?

Pretty good. The more I followed my intuition the more great things came into my life.

Of course, there were time I ignored it and made mistakes but every mistake only made it easier to listen the next time.

It led to my becoming a published best-selling author, speaker and mentor teaching others how to find their purpose and how to create a lifestyle business like mine around their purpose if they so choose.

Teaching others how to follow their intuition to create lives of meaning and purpose by living “The Intuition Principle” deeply fulfills me and is what makes me the happiest.

So here’s to five years of intuition led living!

To celebrate this milestone I’d like to give something special to the Powered by Intuition community.
