Whether we’re talking about healing your body of illness, finding and fulfilling your calling, participating in loving, open-hearted relationships, aligning yourself with financial abundance, or parenting your children, allowing your intuition to help you make decisions leads to conscious choices.
Surely, you know this already. You’ve probably had the direct experience of ignoring a hunch and regretting it later. You’ve probably also had the awe-inspiring feeling of getting out of the way so synchronicity can guide you towards something beautiful that wants to be born through you. Intuition arises from the heart, and when you start to let your heart inform your decisions, mystical magical flow states tend to bubble forth.
But what if you're having a hard time accessing intuition?

Some of my own real-life examples of how intuition guided me toward a whole lot of magic are shared in my book The Anatomy of a Calling. But here are a few playful CliffsNotes to help you navigate your own unique scavenger hunt:
