Shh... can you hear that? 

 
Most of us can't hear our intuition. 

You're told to sit still when all you want to do is dance. To learn 'this' when your interests are 'that'. To work when you want to play. Most people in the English-speaking world suppress their natural intuitions for so long that they become difficult to hear.

As kids and young adults you are rewarded for doing what you "should", for being "good" and following the path. Even if you are lucky, as I was, to have parents who give you space and help you understand your inclinations - the rest (i.e. most) of life does not. Over time, you start to ignore the intuitions and emotions that made you want something else. Not note them, take time to understand them and then set them aside, just simply ignore them. 

Your brain learns to tune intuitive suggestions out as irrelevant information, like the vast majority of the input it gets. You don't even notice you have an intuition anymore — like traffic noise if you live in a city, or swaying if you live on a boat.

If you don't converse with and test your intuition, you can't use it to understand what's going on in your subconscious, or how you can use it to your advantage.
 
Listening is the first step to unlocking your intuition.

After a decade in academia, I now sail the world with my wife and three little boys. My days are mostly spent reading, learning, living and attending (to my family and nature).


I work at most 20 hours a week. A few as a cognitive coach to select visionaries. The rest writing Deep Life, and designing online training to share some of what I do for my clients with others.
