Hi, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session, I want to

talk about intuitive guidance.

So there's a quote by the teacher,

Robert Adams, that I really like,

and I'd like to read it for you.

It says, "There's something

within you that knows what to do.

Surrender your thoughts, your

mind, your ego, to the current that

knows the way it will take care of.

It will take better care of

you than you can ever imagine."

Surrender your thoughts, your mind, your

ego to the current that knows the way.

This has been a deep fascination of

mine over the last years, it's felt

like, I guess you could say a missing

link in my own personal growth journey

where I've done a lot of meditation

and cultivated a lot of awareness

around my internal experience.

But in terms of how to bridge that with

making decisions in my life, it felt

like there was a gap in that education.

What is the inner voice that

I'm supposed to listen to?

And I've seen a lot of different

thoughts, a lot of different emotions.

So many of them are coming and going.

And I've also been a bit disillusioned

by any one particular thought

being the voice of guidance.

It's sort of just been, oh, it's just

another experience arising in my mind.

Curious if you've had that experience

as well in your meditation?

So I think there, there can be

this gap for people when they

develop a meditation practice.

And then a lot of those usual resources

they had, internal resources of like,

oh, I follow when my thoughts say

to do this, I do that reactively.

Once you start questioning, hmm, what

am I supposed to be listening to?

It can put us in a state of limbo.

And so I'm really curious about what

is this current that knows the way.

It is still a deep exploration in me, but

what I have found for myself is that when

I do drop beneath the noise, or when I

pay attention to everything going on in

my system, the different thoughts, the

different emotions, the different felt

senses that arise in my body or my gut,

there are deeper and deeper layers that

feel more and more aligned with my felt

sense of who I am and what feels right.

There's a sense of this is a yes or

this is a no that feels aligned with me.

It's not the thoughts that are

coming from family culture, media.

There's something that feels uniquely

mine in its orientation to this experience

of yes, no, or even an I don't know.

This is a big topic, but I want

to give you one practice you can

utilize to start getting in touch

with that intuitive guidance.

And that is to start getting clearer

on what is a yes for you, what is a no

for you, and what is an I don't know.

Now, I'm not talking about doing that

in relationship to future experiences,

which is something that we, we do want

to develop, but as a way to get in touch

with that as it already exists in you.

I encourage you to explore

experiences in your life that you

already know very deeply are a yes.

Maybe it's a certain relationship

that you know is a yes.

Maybe it's your job

that you know is a yes.

Maybe it's the love you have for

your children that you know is a yes.

And bring that into your mind and

feel what that yes feels like.

How do you know it's a yes?

Is it something in your body?

Is it something in your mind?

Is it a felt experience

or an emotion that arises?

Then do that same thing with the

things that you know are a no.

A relationship, a boundary that you

put up, something going on in the world

that you know you don't stand for?

Drop that in your mind.

What does that feel like?

What does no feel like?

How is it being communicated

to you on a deep level?

And then look at the things that

you actually don't know yet.

You're in a state of limbo.

It's like, I'm not sure

if this is a yes for me.

I'm not sure if this is a no.

There's some ambiguity there.

Drop that into your mind and into your

body and see what does that feel like.

What comes up for me in

relationship to this?

By doing this practice, you start to

get a sense of what a yes feels like, or

let's say what the experience of a yes

is, what the experience of a no is and

what the experience of an I don't know is.

And the clearer you can get on

that, the clearer you can use

it in future moments when you're

trying to make important decisions.

This to me is the beginning of our

work around intuitive guidance.

So thanks for your practice.

Let's settle in for today's meditation.
