We talked yesterday about trusting your gut, however, another important skill is recognizing when our gut is trying to tell us something.
Now, I am clearly getting beyond my role as an armchair psychiatrist with only one class of Psyc 101 in College under my belt, however, I’m going to take a gut shot at gut.
We’ve talked about how the mind works in layers of some sort, and one of the bottom layers is gut. Sometimes, there is a gut feeling that you have, but your higher mental capacities are at work silencing it because it serves some other important role. However, there is still a nagging feeling that something is not quite right.
It’s happening somewhere in your life right now. If you stop and journal, you’ll come to it. Some incongruent place where you know something is off, but you just can’t put your finger on it. Focus. Focus. There. That’s it. That’s where your gut is trying to get out, but you are forcing it down for some reason.
Figure it out, and free yourself.
