How to Follow Your Intuition
It’s not uncommon to hear “just follow your intuition” or “listen to your gut” when trying to decide what is the next best step for you. But, it’s easy to get tripped up on the “how” of that: how do I follow my intuition? How can I discern my intuition from anxiety or my patterns? Patañjali’s answer in Chapter 2 of the Yogasūtra is: viveka khyāti. viveka khyāti means the “experience of discernment” and it is the skill of accurately discerning what is (or is not!) your intuition, followed by the courage to take steps that are aligned with your knowing, not your patterns. It’s a practice that takes time, and well, practice, which is why we are hosting a two hour workshop exploring this topic in-depth. If you have ever wondered if you are making the right choices, or if you are acting in alignment with your knowing, this is for you!
