“Come from the heart, the true heart, not the head. When in doubt, choose the heart. This does not mean to deny your own experiences and that which you have empirically learned through the years. It means to trust your self to integrate intuition and experience. There is a balance, a harmony to be nurtured, between the head and the heart. When the intuition rings clear and true, loving impulses are favored.”
– Brian L. Weiss, Messages from the Masters: Tapping Into the Power of Love
If you don’t know the self-help dynamo Brendon Burchard then you might want to check him out! He is quite the firecracker and has a HUGE following, so needless to say, I was pumped when I found out I had the opportunity to ask some important questions to his book agent, Scott Hoffman.
I went to get quiet and hike before the meeting. What do I ask? I wanted it to be the “best” question for myself and those I serve.
What kept coming up was a question that had been unsettled for several years, yet I kept moving on despite this unsettled feeling.
You have probably had those uneasy or unsettled feelings before.
After talking with Scott Hoffman (who is someone I have highly respected from a distance), I now know my hunch or unsettledness was my intuition talking to me.
You see, for 3 years I have been branding my upcoming book as Raising Your Joy IQ: 3 Steps to Permanently Overcome Anxiety, Depression and Stress-and Become a Magnet for Joy. I “like” but don’t love this title, however, during a crossroads with my editor, I had to “stick” with something so I stayed with it.
However, I have truly thought the title was “too mental” and didn’t really suit me, but who am I to insert my opinion about my book. LOL:-)
Anyhow, I realized after asking Scott which title he liked best, Ignite Your Soul’s Joy or Raising Your Joy IQ. He agreed – he thought Raising Your Joy IQ was boring too, and that Ignite Your Soul’s Joy was better!
I share this with you to say, if something keeps bothering you or your feel unsettled, TRUST that feeling and keep asking questions. Soon ( hopefully before 3 years for you) the light bulb will come on and you will KNOW it is your intuition after all, trying to get your attention.
