Just had my bro toss this bit at me, so let me share it with you.
"There are a lot of people who think that many external things are a "sign". They experience a synchronicity and they are blown away. This can be great, but remember that the internal feelings are much more of a sign.
If you feel that you are wanting to do something, this is also a sign. If you feel like you need to leave something, create something, this is also a sign. If you ignore it, you will get your ass kicked until you jump.
We have been brilliantly trained to let go of our intuition and rationalize everything. That intuition is the most important sign that you have. It is your guidance. It is your soul. If you feel in your soul that you need to leap, that is it. If you feel this feeling and then you analyze everything, you are making your circumstances more important than your soul.
Your heart and soul are always trying to guide you. They tell you “Lets leave this mediocre situation.” or “Write a book now.” Or “Take the day off and meditate.” YOU ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES. THE SECOND YOU UNDERSTAND THIS, YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES CHANGE.
When you have this gut feeling, you have to learn to listen to it. When you do, you end up getting more and more connected to it and better and better at working from passion and love.
When you feel something exciting and then you don’t jump, your mind has to justify it.
Soul; We should leave this company. We have something bigger to do. Mind; Yeah but if we do, we wont get to go to the Black Angus party next week. Also how would I make money? Soul: Leave this company. We have something bigger to do. After that leap, I you will be guided again. Mind: No.
If the mind wins here, you start training yourself to listen to your fears, your circumstances and you ignore that inner calling. You become like most people and just survive.
If you listen to soul, you see the world in a VERY VERY different way. You are handed powers you didn’t know you had. You are free, open, and everything becomes faster. Time moves differently for you. You are more present, confident and you have bigger and better ideas.
Your soul can’t tell you what will happen if you jump, because your soul is a feeling, not a rationalization. It is taking you to new territory and you can’t see it mentally. You don’t need to see it mentally. Everything will be far beyond taken care of on that side. You can learn to trust yourself and actually prove to yourself that you actually truly believe in this “god” or “universe” or “intuition.”
It blows my mind how many people claim to believe in some invisible force, but ignore it’s guidance and move from fear, safety and they stay the same. They want to do something so bad, but they don’t move. That wanting is being ignored. The soul is being ignored. What somebody thinks, your current bank account, your shitty situation actually becomes your god. That’s what you are putting out. It doesn’t matter what you say, that is what you are actually living.
If you truly believe in this eternal being or force, listen to it’s inner guidance. If you are in a situation that doesn’t feel right, you are arguing with yourself, or god, or the universe, whatever you want to call it.
You have to learn to trust it. But if you listen to it more frequently than your justification, your life will start to explode with external results which mirror your inner leaps. You will become connected to yourself and you will stop people pleasing, doubting, being addicted to everything, etc.
If you are only making your external situations a “Sign” you are still making yourself a victim to your external circumstances. You are still doing great, but we have unlimited abilities and we do everything to hand it off to something else.
Seriously. Take the first step. Don’t hit 90 years old asking yourself why you didn’t listen to your guidance. At any point, you can start. It’s scary for 10 seconds and then more rewarding than you will ever understand.”
Which is not to say, of course, that you should follow every single one of your impulses without thinking.
