Q-How following your Intuition has changed your life?
My intuition is something I’ve always had (as we all have intuition), but I never knew what it was or that I could trust it. In fact, I spent much of my life believing someone else had the answers. I was constantly going to others for guidance and advice.
In 2016, while working with my first coach, he told me, “Anne you don’t trust others because you don’t trust yourself.” I had never heard it that way before, but as I sat with it, I knew he was right. I didn’t trust myself and because of it, there were multiple times in my life I ignored and brushed off red flags.
As my relationship was coming to a screeching halt at the end of 2016, I learned more and more into what my gut (my intuition) was telling me. In February 2017, I received the intuitive nudge, “Sell everything and travel.” Beyond all logic, I decided to follow the nudge.
In July 2017, I left Chicago and ventured out onto the road. First, I was in small-town Mississippi for 8 months as my life and business hit rock bottom. Even though from the outside looking in my life appeared to be falling apart, I knew I was on the right path. I could feel it. There was no external proof to show me I had made the right choice. All I had was a feeling.
I continued on, trusting what I felt above what I could see. I began to learn that in the spiritual world, things are felt and experienced on an energetic level before they are seen in the physical world.
Though I used that knowledge as I left Mississippi and ventured out on the road full-time, staying primarily in Airbnbs.
However, very quickly began to develop a system for knowing when a place had chosen me. As much as I wanted to choose where I went (my former control freak patterns were constantly being challenged).
I was forced over and over again to surrender and trust that God and my higher self were guiding me at all times.
I did not choose the places; the places always chose me.
I first paid attention to how my body felt. I noticed which places felt like they were pulling me in. When I felt naturally drawn to a place (even if I didn’t know why).
I pulled out an atlas that had been given by a family member and my pendulum to double-check. It was a way of me deepening my trust. Every time I noticed myself feeling energetically drawn to a place and it checked out with the atlas and pendulum, only trusted myself and my intuition more and more.
From there, I went to the Airbnb website and looked at places in the general area I had been pulled to. I noticed the same draw to certain pictures and places, which informed which places I booked.
Align With The Authentic Self
After doing that for almost a year, I began to use the same practice in dating (on dating apps). I paid less attention to the profile itself and paid more attention to the energy of the man or the energy behind his words.
Through the practice, I became so in tune with the energy in my body and whether I was feeling pulled in or receiving a red flag (which usually resulted in a clenching in my gut or feeling my heart closed off).
I’ve been able to tell almost immediately if there is a natural connection with a man.
I’ve used the same practice in my business, as well. Through working with coaches on and off over the last few years.
Just began to pay attention to when I felt a strong, “No!” in my body when I was being asked to do something that didn’t align with my authentic self.
I have now cultivated such a deep connection to myself, my higher power. And the best is an unshakable trust in myself that regardless of what the external world shows me.
I know who I am, why I’m here, and what my purpose on this planet is.
That has created a level of confidence I never knew was possible. For so many years, I had what I call “surface level confidence”. I appeared to be confident, but deep down, without trusting myself my confidence could only go so far—-it was conditional.
And now I live an unconditional life. I embody unconditional love, confidence, and faith that regardless of what I’m shown. I am always exactly where I am meant to be.
