Common wisdom says to listen to the little voice in your head.
Acknowledge it and heed its wisdom.
Sure, it’s great advice. I think we all have stories where some spark of intuition, based on nothing at all, steered us right.
But I think we all have stories where it didn’t.
Where the voice said ‘eat pizza’ or ‘drink this tequila, then call your ex’.
It’s almost like we have two sets of instincts – one set is base, destructive and animalistic. The other is enlightened, wise and primal.
The trick is they both sound the same, especially in the moment.
So what do you do? Do you listen, or not?
Well, it should be pretty clear – the voice that tells you to binge anything isn’t your friend. You know what’s good for you and what’s not.
For everything else, it’s less clear.
Are you reluctant to take the job because your new boss sets off your skeeve alarm, or you’re afraid of change?
That’s not easy to answer.
Unless, of course, you’re on excellent terms with your instincts.
See, there is a difference between your inner wisdom and your inner coward. They talk differently, and I don’t necessarily mean that literally. It might be a vague felt sense.
But the difference is there.
Once you know what to look for, it’s impossible to ignore.
Learning this difference is one of the many, many benefits of intensive self-hypnosis, meditation and other mind training. If this seemingly superhuman skill is something you’d always wanted to learn but never knew how, then you should check out Monster Mind Edukaré. It starts off at the absolute basics (if you “can’t meditate”, then I have you covered) and goes all the way to some advanced, funky, zen stuff.
