[08:21] Rebecca’s Transformative Journey: Embracing the “Best Worst Part”
Rebecca’s journey over the past two years has been filled with challenges and darkness, affecting both her clients and friends. Despite this, she considers it the “best worst part” of her life. The loss of her job, marriage, money, and lifestyle stripped her down and made her vulnerable, prompting her to question her purpose and priorities. Through this soul-searching process, she discovered her true calling. If Rebecca had stayed on the path of a high-paying job, she would have remained unfulfilled and disconnected from her true desires. This transformative experience opened her up to immense joy in her current work, where she helps people access their intuition, healing through writing, and providing intuitive sessions and coaching. This career shift not only transformed her own life but also allowed her to have a greater impact on others than she ever could have in the fashion industry.
[10:12] Breaking Free from the Good Girl Mentality
The good girl mentality or programming that society ingrains in us often leads us to believe that we should just follow the rules and be grateful for them. People around us, with good intentions, reinforce this mindset, praising our external achievements and making us feel like we’re doing the right thing. However, deep down, it can be challenging to ignore the inner voice that urges us to listen to our intuition. When we fail to heed those whispers from the universe, life may present us with difficult circumstances for our own growth, even if it’s not enjoyable or easy.
[15:21] How to Tap Into Your Intuition
Tap into your intuition by acknowledging that we all possess this innate ability. Don’t let societal conditioning dismiss or downplay it, especially as women. Trust that your intuition is a valuable resource. Cultivate a sense of calm and inner knowing through meditation or quiet reflection. When those unexplainable feelings arise, honor them. Whether it’s a pause or reaching out to someone, trust those instincts. Practice active listening and surround yourself with a supportive community that validates your intuitive nature. Embrace the journey of developing a deeper connection with your inner guidance and allow your intuition to guide you towards personal growth and fulfillment.
