Funny thing gut instinct. You meet someone and they come across all candy coated with their charm and you think what an interesting person so you decide to connect.
Inside your gut instinct is sounding all the bells and whistles indicating something is just not right and your gut instinct sits there hanging waiting for you to listen. Yet in the back of your mind you are thinking, “but why, he/she seems so pleasant, so sincere and others think he/she is such a great person….” . You choose to ignore gut instinct because it must be wrong and you get more involved with this “lovely person” you have encoutered.
Well, I have been clean for almost 2 years now manged to stay away from people have hidden agendas but the other day I met someone and gut instinct sounded the alarm bells and what did I do. I did not listen. I did not trust my gut instinct and guess what I am paying the price for not listening.
I read a blog posted by Liz Chukwu the other day The wisdom of your spirit, do you have trusted advisors which reminded me to always listen to my trusted advisors. There is a reason for their existence, to guide and protect you.
Have you trusted your gut instincted lately, if so how has it benefited you? If you did not, what were the consequences?
