The most common question I get in my workshops and lectures is, “How can I tell the difference between my ego and my intuition?”
My immediate response is to reassure everyone that you always have access to the voice of your intuition. You might think you don’t. Maybe you have grown to doubt yourself as a rule. That’s because you have learned to listen to your ego.
The ego is rooted in fear. It likes to keep us “safe” by putting limitations on us. It tries to control, manipulate and force. The ego wants things done a certain way.
On the other hand, our intuition is a kind, loving inner voice that guides us toward positive actions and peaceful outcomes. Often inspiration shows up as a strong knowing or gut feeling. Sometimes intuitive guidance comes through as a powerful sense of inspiration or even a tingly physical sensation.
We all have this groovy inner guidance system, but many of us disconnect from it. Watch the video below to learn how to know the difference between ego and intuition.
