How intuitive are you REALLY?
Most of the coaches, hell pretty much all of the coaches, that I speak with will own up to the fact that they are intuitive people. That they coach intuitively and they're really good at that. And that's great. When I first started coaching nearly a decade ago, I told everyone that they were going to be receiving intuitive coaching, that they were hiring an intuitive coach.
It was true, but it wasn't as true as it could be. Here's where I went astray...
1. I didn't consciously work on my own intuitive skills, I just leaned into them enough to have a good coaching call and then went about my life. My intuition lived in the vacuum of my coaching space. I didn't stretch my intuition. I didn't train my intuition. In other words, I'd turn up the volume during sessions and then tune it back out afterwards.
I learned slowly over time to tune into my nudges all of the time instead of sparingly, like instead of saving the best bite for last I ate only the best bites all the time. Once I really started focusing on being as intuitive as I could possibly be in all areas of my life, my sessions went from really good to holy cow. Intuition is like a muscle. I needed to develop and work it out and learn to really really have confidence and trust in it.
It is a natural skill that I get to nurture and grow.
2. I didn't let my intuition lead my business. This is a big one. I didn't trust that intuition is fine in my coaching calls but business was serious brain stuff. That was a hard skill to learn, to surrender when you know you have a to-do list. AND the more I surrendered the easier things flowed and the more money and abundance I created in my business and life.
I also didn't 'get' that running my business intuitively didn't mean I wasn't in action, I wasn't going to be sitting around meditating and hoping to 'attract' clients to me. It is a very active and CREATIVE process, it just doesn't look like what any one was teaching - and that was exciting and a struggle for me too, to fully abandon all the ways I had learned over the years and trust that my way was not only okay but was the ONLY path to my own success.
I had to develop my skills as an intuitive to be a better intuitive coach.
I had to incorporate intuition into ALL parts of my life, not just the coaching space.
I had to seriously trust that I hadn't gone completely loco in the process.
So my question to you is... if you were to abandon all of your carefully crafted marketing or outreach plans, if you divorced yourself from the 'shoulds', and if you leaned FULLY into your intuition - what would you REALLY be doing in your business this week?
