Our intuition is our inner compass. But, when we are caught up in the busyness of the mind, our inner knowing gets drowned out and we have a difficult time listening or even sensing it. Feeling lost on what to do, the mind goes around and around like a hamster running on a wheel.
That is until we actually surrender, which allows the mind to rest.
For the past few weeks, my mind has been busy narrowing down a selection of mentors for the Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program or MMTCP. It’s been a big decision to make as this mentor I choose will be with me throughout this two year journey. Because each of the mentors on my top ten list are highly qualified and would bring much opportunities for growth, I am torn on exactly who my top pick should be.
Getting comfortable, I brought my awareness to my breath. Bringing a soft gaze to the decision I am about to make, I felt my belly tighten slightly. Continuing to take some deep breaths, my body began to relax, which allowed for my mind to follow suit. I visualized all the thoughts associated with my decision as white wispy seeds on a dandelion. As I exhaled, I watched those seeds flow through the air and land on the earth in front of me. With no seeds, I am able to listen to my intuition.
Surrendering, I put trust in my intuition to help guide me to my decision. Surrendering, I know the right answer will present itself at the right time.
