I am Enough & I am Insightful.

Where does your insight come from? I’d venture to say mine comes from asking questions I’m naturally curious . I tend to ask questions to understand better.

My mom says I would in the past, come in the house from playing, ask her a question, then run right back outside.

That was me.

It’s because I’m always thinking.

Being insightful requires  that we be intuitive human beings. I believe innately we all have a desire to understand the hard things in life.

We use questions to help us think clearly. We consider…and then we make decisions. For a very long time, I did not make decisions. I chose not to. Because I was too afraid. I decided that if I made a decision someone would suffer, and ¬†most likely that would be ¬†someone I loved. And of course, it would be me, so I just didn’t. Yet not deciding , was deciding.

History: I was in a relationship where I wasn‚Äôt treated very well, and ¬†I chose to stay. I did think of leaving¬†‚Ķmore than once. Yet¬†I suffered. ¬†I decided the day I made the decision to move on, that I would not be in a relationship again until I knew ‚Äúwho I was‚ÄĚ, in that relationship. Because I had gone so long in this¬†relationship without an identity. So long‚Ķ and didn‚Äôt change anything about myself. How crucial it was, to own my soul. ¬†Every time ¬†I gave my soul away, I would give away a piece of myself. I decided that I would work on ¬†changing myself, and start dreaming. I wrote down on a piece of paper all the things that were wrong. ¬†It turns out , those things were the things that hurt me the most, and had begun to leave scars. So I needed to leave, in order to no longer be treated that way.

And so I did. The day I chose to leave, I believe my destiny began to be¬†released. I began to “feel andbe¬†” happier in my everyday life. ¬†I felt a ¬†weight lift off of my chest. I began to smile more, and care less about the person who hurt me, and more about myself first; because for the first time I saw surprise in their eyes. They couldn‚Äôt predict my actions. And that was good stuff. ¬†And that surprise to me was a sign I was doing something right. So, I ¬†began to move along and do more out of the box ‚Ästselfish, ¬†yet self-loving acts.

Before I left ¬†the relationship, I was really meditating on hearing my spirit more, and one of the ¬†phrases I heard often was: ‚ÄúTake care of ¬†the God in you.‚ÄĚ The God in me, was loving, caring full of strength, love and full consideration of how to love others back in a righteous way, and that, I wanted to model for others, and for my children, one day as well. ¬†I began to keep my ears keen for people who demonstrated the same kind of love for me, and ¬†on the weekend of October 14th, 2005, I heard it. It as very keen,¬†and it was ¬†exactly what I was looking for. Although l really didn‚Äôt expect it so soon. A man I didn‚Äôt know very well, (yet considered a friend from a leadership event a year before) , began to speak to my heart. We talked ¬†for hours that weekend. And it was as if every moment was absorbed ¬†through my ears, into my skin, my intuition, and ¬†straight into my heart. He spoke to my worth. That honorable and ¬†distinguished man became my husband. ¬†All of the junk ¬†and the misconceptions and lies were washed out of my brain and my head was clear enough to hear it.

I decided that day, I would begin a new journey to loving me, because I knew once I began to truly love myself,   I would feel completely deserving o my own good. And even when opportunities presented, I would find them to grace my life with complete favor.

Insight involves  three beautiful life-changing  factors:

  1. ¬†Intuition. Intuition¬†¬†is¬†described¬†as :‚Äúthe ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning.‚ÄĚThere are some issues we¬†experience¬†in life, we just know. We don‚Äôt know ‚Äėhow we know, but like my former pastor in¬†Texas¬†used to say:‚ÄúWe just know it in our knower.‚ÄĚ I have collected ¬†and meditated even,¬†upon this thought over and over when I needed to make a the right decision, and ¬†depending upon my ‚Äúknower‚ÄĚ was ¬†always what held me upright and allowed me to keep my head up ‚Äď without shame, in the end.
  2. Knowledge.Knowledge because it takes  the sifting of what we learn via our intuition, to help us move forwards without disgrace. and move forward with our heads held high in confidence we are moving in the right direction.
  3. ¬†Understanding.¬†Understanding¬†is like to icing on the cake. Once you have ¬†a good taste of it, it helps ¬†sort of¬†stays with you and gives you ¬†that‚ÄĚ forever-flavor‚Äô in life. ¬†If you have¬†forever‚ÄĚ flavor‚ÄĚ, you have ¬†wisdom. The Bible¬†says ‚Ä̬†The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom, and whatever you get, get insight.‚ÄĚ ESV. It also tells us ¬†to even not rely on our own understanding. I have seen far too many rely on it, and fall back on shame. And often disgrace, for a lifetime.

When you don’t have these three awesome factors,  you  fall upon inexperience, naivete’  you become neglectful, it effects your reputations and you  become really insensitive towards others. I used to always pray for God to keep me humble, Sometimes I believe the results of those prayers today are embedded in my character,  with insight, because I  listened within, and I heard myself speak in my heart, as well as my soul.

I  prompt you today:

To LISTEN to yourself.  Remind yourself constantly of what you believe in, and then…  walk it out.

As long as it protects your thought life, your reputation, your spirit, and your life hold on to what you believe!

Question: 

When was the last time you listened to someone else before yourself, and how much did it cost you?

5 Questions to Cultivating A Healthy Intuition.

I am an intuitive thinker :
intuitive means you are a creature of your own habit and understand why you operate the way you do; without intense thought.
It means to   be second nature or without thought.
How much are you  able to understand how you operate in this fashion?   Are you able to recognize its importance?
 Are you open-minded?
 Can you listen to  people and their thoughts without making judgment?
  Some of these  are simple way so f think
 What gets in the way of  you being open?
 So intuition means:
1. perceive directly Р by intuition without rational thought, as a person or the mind.
2. to be easy to understand or operate without explicit instruction.intuition-meme
So…. I went on a date with ¬†my husband and we got into ¬†conversation about “how I think”. He is always ¬†trying to understand me. ¬† He thought he knew me as a “feeling person and though I often ¬† operate out of my feelings a lot. ¬†I ¬†often wondered why he said you tend to “feel and then you ¬†act.” ¬†I told him, “no, thats not true.” ¬†i understand why I make the decisions I do. ¬†I ¬† do them because I understand what I value most, and ¬†what’s a priority for me in my life.
¬†I often prioritize my purpose, ¬†my way of thinking , my esteem, ¬†my confidence and ¬†my ¬†self- ¬†growth . ¬†Yet I ¬†also believe I “honor ” that ¬†same premise in the lives of others. ¬†But lets talk about self- awareness first, because that’s our Mentor My Sister focus.
 So i had to explain to him I have lived a long life, and I  just have recognized are  learned  experiences,  honored principles and intuitive concepts that have worked immensely for me , in my life.  How  I tend to  CONTINUE to express  the  need and desire for these values to maintain,  and  benefit me in my  sense of security all   the values that   preserved me as  a woman are  very, very important, so i reflect and ask my self  first:
 1. Am I breaking any self law or values that   resonate with my self- preservation?
2. Do I feel  secure and have peace about this decision?
3.  What indicates i am in tune with myself in this process? Am I feeling confident and  less stressed by making the decision? Does it give me peace, or  am I wrapped in guilt.?  Whose condemning voice is it?
 4.  What indicates I am not making a good decision?
5. What makes  ultimately   helps me to feel  whole and feeling  good about who I am?
