Have you ever asked someone else to make a decision for you because you just weren’t certain of which way to go? But you knew internally that you wanted a safe decision. One where you didn’t hurt anyone, let anyone down and definitely didn’t put yourself first. What about if putting your needs first is ok? What about if clarity was so clear that knowing your needs was enough to make the right decisions for you?
Let me explain?
This all has to do with self realisation, decision and being worthy of putting your needs above everyone else’s.
This morning I was sitting having coffee with my friend – she turned to me and asked me – do pilates and yoga practices complement each other?
As well as being a Medical Intuitive, I am a Pilates Instructor and an Anatomy expert, I feel equipped to answer the question from a physiology standpoint. I gave her the anatomy facts and the difference between the practices. Yes indeed they do complement each other.
Then she spoke about time management – how her life was being managed by schedule commitments and that Pilates was proving difficult to get to.
She said “you gave me some information but I want you to tell me what I should do?” Ok that was the real reason – she wanted someone else to decide – so that she wouldn’t have to decide but more so that she didn’t feel enough of her power base to feel good about her decision. Have you ever done this? Then said oh but so and so who is an expert said this and that. Can I tell you that no one in this world is more expert than you are!
Take your power back – you have the right to make decisions and prioritise your time for things that support your goals in life.
Be clear with your GOAL SETTING
Be clear on what your goals are. Stand in your truth and sit in your power. No one else knows what is happening on your insides. Heed the warnings and listen to your gut. Your intuition is your guiding light – your internal compass. We are all fully supported when we start taking inspired action and support ourselves.
Going back to my friend who said – “can’t you tell me?”
I said “no. It really is your decision. This is what I can say, it is about prioritising and being clear”. Her self realisation kicked in she said – “this is my decision”. Yay!
She and only she, can make decisions for her life. She took her power back and her decision was solid.
DECISION MAKING CAN BE CHALLENGING
Decisions can be challenging but once you make them – it feels solid. It feels like you are on a path to somewhere rather than going round in circles.
Decisions made after self realisations are the most profound.
Want to know more? Needing some clarity in your life? Struggling to prioritise your goals? Need to peel back to find the real you and enjoy your core desires? Then book in for a Medical Intuition Session. Healing starts with knowledge and clarity. Sometimes we just need support to peel back layers so we can see our path clearly xx
"take your power back – you have the right to make decisions."
this is something that i spend a great deal of time on with my clients. many of these women, after dealing with an eating disorder for many years, are used to giving their power away (primarily to their illness). i coach them and encourage them and support them in TAKING IT BACK. an important message, maria – thank you.
hi April – I agree – this is a pattern and is almost a relearning or new learning of being. God Bless for the work that you do xx
Interesting Maria… you know, I was feeling like taking a bath…it's the middle of the afternoon and thought, I really should wait for evening… I've been on antibiotics now… a heavy dose.. for the past 9 days… and although I feel better, I poop out quickly… I kept thinking, just keep going, rest later… and then I read this sentence in your post…. "Can I tell you that no one in this world is more expert than you are!" … and within the few sentences to follow I thought,… what the heck are you doing?… go have a bath. Your body is speaking. Your intuition knows. .… who cares if you think there is more to do or that's not the norm!. You are tired. Your intuition is speaking. You'll have the energy later… then do it then.
So… going to run the bath now… thank you Maria…. 🙂 great post! deep bow!
Music to my ears – hope you enjoyed the bath, beautiful soul <3
I was recently in a personal situation where I boldly took back my power. It felt sooooo good.
oh yes Michelle – it is so good xx
This is a beautiful reminder that we do not need any external validation when we know what we truly need. So many people feel that their internal gauge is not enough of a reason to base their decisions on, and this post is a great reminder of how important it is to honor ourselves and be true to ourselves. Thank you for sharing!
Hi Cathy – thank you so much. xx
Yes, I can relate. There are times in my life when I know at a really deep level what I want/need to do but I still look to that outside source to confirm it, be a trusted friend or a guide. Fortunately for me I have some very wise guides who lead me back to self!
mmm – Sue Ann – I love that back to self – that's where it is, really – sometimes we do need some guidance – I put my hand up too xx
I used to struggle with indecision – stuck for too long in not knowing which way to go and turning the pros and cons over in my head. I'm just so glad that now I'm so much more in touch with myself and my intuition. It makes decision making (mostly) effortless. Just a gentle tuning in to what feels right. And it works!
I love the "gentle tuning in to what feel right" – perfect. I also speak about effortless effort – mmmmm – love this <3
One thing I've come to learn, when a decision becomes too overwhelming, is to give the weight of the decision over to a higher power so that all I have to do is work with the facts and how I feel about the different choices. When I have the desperate need for someone else to decide for me, it's usually a need for permission, or some other need based in fear. It truly is powerful to acknowledge that a decision is my own.
"Decisions made after self realisation are the most profound." I love that. So true.
Oh thank you Cathy – you and me both – it is the permission to be and tune in that is the most profound xx
This resonates with me Maria!!
When people ask me what I do, I often reply 'I help overwhelmed women make decisions' whether it's planning an event or giving advice many want me to decide so they can give the ownership away.
I try to help them to tap into what they like and what feels right to them too.
I just love that Susie – it is about helping women make decisions but in a guided soul essence presence xx
