In life, we get lots of feedback to let us know when we are on the right track or if we are off course. These signs can come from the external world, such as comments from people in your life and obstacles coming up as you try to make things happen. They can also come from inside yourself, as a gut reaction, an intuitive response or just a sense of knowing what to do or not to do.
We’ve all have those signs show up. The ones that warn us we are going off course are yellow alerts–just little warning lights that come up over and over and get stronger and stronger if we ignore them. Sometimes it feels like we’re being hit upside the head with a 2X4 when we get some feedback! If it gets to this point, you can likely look back at your life and see other more gentle alerts that were there all along but you didn’t pay attention to.
We also get lots of small alerts or green lights when we are on the right track. Sometimes these are even harder to see, because we write them off as luck, or happenstance, or serendipity, not as clear messages from the external world or our own intuition to point us in the right direction.
So how can you use the alerts and signs you are given more effectively? Pay attention. Notice when something comes up related to a question you’ve had or a problem you are trying to solve. Thank the source of feedback, out loud or just in your mind. Don’t write it off as chance–if you act as if these bits of feedback are intentional signs, you start to see more and more of them. And that gets you to using your internal and external guidance systems in ways that catapult you toward your dreams!
