March is celebrated as Spiritual Wellness Month. It is a time to reflect on the values, ethics and morals that add value and give meaning to your life. Here at diGJamaica, we’re going on a quest for 30 days of inspiration: extracting the common principles from different religions and systems of belief that help their followers to find inner peace, purpose and direction. Each day for the month of March, we will be sharing another principle with you. Join us as we embark on this journey to spiritual wellness.
What we’ve covered so far:
Fine-tune Your Intuition
“Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition,” Steve Jobs, the late co-founder of Apple, is popular for saying, “They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
Intuition is defined by The Oxford Dictionary as “The ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning.” It is what people call ‘gut feeling’ or ‘ a knowing’. For many years, scientists have tried to study human intuition to better explain where it comes from and why it seems to work in their favour so often. There have been many different conclusions, but the overwhelming consensus is that intuition, once accepted and exercised with some degree of caution, is a great source of power and direction.
Here are five things that you can do to build your intuition:
- Make time for down-time: times when you are not working, and by yourself.
- Practise mindfulness: be more alert and aware of your surroundings.
- Reduce distractions in your daily life.
- Listen to your body.
- Quickly release negative emotions: Do not harbour them.
Your life will be full of people who want to tell you what to do and how to live. Fine-tuning your intuition is one way to avoid the trap of being easily swayed by the opinions and decisions of others. Learn to trust yourself and make your own choices. Learn to tap into that inner voice and instinct that already knows what you truly want out of life. After all, if you’re not enjoying your life, who will?
