Today, I want to take you on an unmapped territory: the land of your feminine intuition.
Intuition is one of our most sacred feminine gifts.
When we listen to our feminine intuition we are completely in sync with the feminine energy. And the more we practice it, the stronger it gets.
But why, if intuition is such a superpower, don’t we listen to it more often?
Let’s be honest. How many times did you have THAT feeling in your stomach? You SIMPLY KNEW when someone or something wasn’t good for you, but you took a chance anyway (and then regretted)?
I hear you, sister!
We’ve all been there, and probably can’t avoid it either. It’s part of our becoming.
Here’s something to remember: what stops you from listening to your intuition is fear.
Yes, fear of taking an action that’s out of our comfort zone or fear of what people might say if we take action according to our intuition.
The fear might be related to something specific or not. You might be aware of it or it might be acting on you silently.
It doesn’t even matter.
What matters is that fear stops you from listening to your intuition to the fullest and from living you femininity to the maximum.
Here’s a simple practice that teaches you how to listen to your intuition the feminine way.
Connect with Mother Nature
The most simple and also counterintuitive (pun intended) step that helps you connect with your intuition is this: leave the house and go out in nature.
Yes, you heard me well.
You don’t need to practice a lot of complex asanas to ground yourself. The most simple things will do. And in this case, Mother Nature is your strongest and wisest ally to fortify your intuition.
Mother Nature is your strongest and wisest ally to fortify your intuition.
The second simple step that helps you with learning how to cultivate and listen to you intuition is walking barefoot.
As simple as that.
So, find a patch of green grass, take you shoes off, and just walk.
This will ground you even more and has huge benefits for your physical, emotional and mental health.
After grounding, the third step is releasing your fear, so you can listen clearly to the voice of your feminine intuition.
In traditional Chinese medicine, emotions and physical health are strongly interlinked. Sadness, grief, fear, anger, worry are each associated with a particular organ in the body.
Fear and insecurity can affect the kidneys and might result in UTIs, low back pain, hair loss, osteoporosis etc.
Therefore, if we want to treat an emotion, we should also treat the organ and vice versa.
The Kidney Breathing is a powerful practice that helps you release fear, relax and therefore trust your intuition more.
For these practice, find a quiet place (preferably in nature) and follow the steps below:
Step 1: Take the horse stance position.
Also called mǎbù in Chinese and kiba-dachi in Japanese, the horse stance position is an important posture in Asian martial arts, taking its name from the position assumed when riding a horse.
Stand up straight and put your legs apart, making sure that your toes are facing forward.
Also, make sure that your spine is straight and your posture flat.
Bend your knees and lower the upper body, as if you were sitting on horseback. Be aware never to put your knees forward or outward over the toes. Double check if your feet are facing forward and your hips are loose.
Step 2: Warm up the palms of your hands.
Place your palms together, like you were praying, and rub them well until you feel your palms warming up.
Step 3: Breathe in a deep blue sky.
Holding the horse stance position, place your palms on your kidneys and start breathing deeply, imagining your are breathing in a deep blue sky and breathing out all your fears and worries.
Breathe in the deep blue sky, breath out fears and worries. Breathe in trough your nose and breathe out through your mouth.
Do this for 5-7 minutes.
Pay attention to the messages of your feminine intuition
Do this practice daily and take notes. Start out a journal and write down any “gut feelings” that show up in relation to a situation or a person.
Ask yourself: “what does my intuition tell me about the truth of this matter?”.
Be intentional, observe and track your progress by noticing what changes.
I’m so curious how this will work out for you!
