Dear Shaman Lizzie: While making important decisions in my life, I have a difficult time trusting my intuition. This has caused me to make some poor decisions. How can I learn to trust my intuition? Kathy, Louisville, KY

Dear Kathy: Welcome and thank you for this very popular question about trusting your intuition! Trusting your intuition is a powerful tool that can guide you in making wise decisions and navigating through life’s challenges. It is the ability to tap into your inner wisdom, to listen to your gut feelings, and to trust yourself. In answering your question, we will explore the importance of developing your intuition, learning to trust your feelings, and how it can help you achieve your goals in life.

What is Intuition?

Intuition is often described as a “gut feeling” or a sense of knowing without any logical explanation. It is that inner voice that guides us when we are faced with difficult decisions or uncertain situations. Intuition is not based on external facts or evidence, but rather on our subconscious mind’s ability to process information and make connections that our conscious mind may not be aware of.

Developing Your Intuition

Like any skill, intuition can be developed and strengthened over time. Here are a few ways to enhance your intuitive abilities:

Quiet Your Mind: Take time for self-reflection and meditation. Clearing your mind of distractions allows your intuition to surface and be heard.

Listen to Your Body: Pay attention to physical sensations and emotions. Your body often gives subtle signals that can guide you towards the right decision.

Trust Your Feelings: Practice trusting your instincts and acting upon them. The more you trust and act on your intuition, the stronger it becomes.

Keep a Journal: Record your intuitive experiences and reflect on them. This will help you recognize patterns and validate your intuition.

Trusting Yourself

Trusting yourself is essential for making confident decisions. When you trust yourself, you are more likely to follow your intuition and make choices that align with your values and goals. Trusting yourself also means accepting that you may make mistakes along the way, but that those mistakes are opportunities for growth and learning.

One way to build trust in yourself is to reflect on past decisions and their outcomes. Consider the times when you trusted your intuition and it led to positive results. By acknowledging these successes, you reinforce your belief in your own judgment.

Making Difficult Decisions

Difficult decisions can often leave us feeling overwhelmed and unsure of which path to take. This is where intuition can be a valuable guide. When faced with a tough choice, take a moment to quiet your mind and listen to your inner voice. Trust that your intuition will guide you towards the right path.

It’s important to note that intuition should not be the sole basis for decision-making. It should be used in conjunction with rational thinking and gathering relevant information. By combining intuition with logical analysis, you can make well-informed decisions that take into account both your gut feelings and the facts at hand.

Goals in Life

Trusting your intuition can also help you in setting and achieving your goals in life. Your intuition can guide you towards the goals that are truly aligned with your values and passions. It can help you make choices that will bring you fulfillment and happiness.

When setting goals, take the time to reflect on what truly matters to you. Trust your intuition to guide you towards goals that resonate with your inner self. As you work towards these goals, continue to listen to your intuition along the way. It may provide insights and guidance that can help you navigate any challenges or obstacles that arise.


Trusting your intuition is a valuable skill that can lead to more fulfilling and purposeful decision-making. By developing your intuition, listening to your gut feelings, and trusting yourself, you can make wise choices that align with your values and goals. Remember, intuition is not a magical power, but rather a tool that can be honed and utilized to enhance your life’s journey. Embrace your inner wisdom and trust the guidance it provides.
