7. “This is it!”
Often when the perfect life calling, spiritual path, job, house, decision, option, etc. comes along, your gut instinct will immediately notify you. If you receive a strong and clear feeling that practically screams “YES” don’t ignore it! This is one of the most important reasons why it’s essential to listen to your gut instinct. It could be the difference between making a life-fulfilling choice and a soul-starving decision.
“Follow your instincts. That’s where true wisdom manifests itself.” – Oprah Winfrey
So long as you’re able to distinguish between the voice of fear and the spontaneous feelings of your gut instinct, it is safe to trust your gut.
Trusting your instincts is an invaluable life skill and one that will tremendously benefit you on the spiritual path. After all, this instinct is built into our very DNA, so why not make the most use out of it?
As a final recommendation, I suggest practicing mindfulness meditation if you struggle to trust your gut. Mindfulness meditation will help you to become aware of your thoughts and body sensations. The more awareness you can develop, the easier it will be to make the distinction – it will become second-nature to you.

Tuning in to our gut instinct might not be that easy for some of us as developing the skills to listen to your instincts requires some effort. This is why mindfulness meditation is a great way to get in touch with your thoughts, emotions, and instincts. This allows you to silence the incessant noise in your mind and focus on your inner voice and experience pure energy.
“Dedicating some time to meditation is a meaningful expression of caring for yourself that can help you move through the mire of feeling unworthy of recovery. As your mind grows quieter and more spacious, you can begin to see self-defeating thought patterns for what they are, and open up to other, more positive options.” – Sharon Salzberg
So when you are making a crucial life decision next time, make sure you tap into your gut instinct and carefully listen to what it’s trying to tell you.
It will always lead you down the right path.
