Go with your first response. If you are trying to decide which route to take in life, put yourself in each environment and witness your body’s response. For instance, in deciding whether to live in a townhouse or condo, make a trip to each place and observe your physical reactions while standing quietly and calmly without mental engagement. Does a feeling of excitement overcome you? Do you feel energized and inspired or is there a dulling sensation with negative energy? Are you feeling open and loving or closed and resistant? These are all valuable indicators of what your intuition is telling you.
If it is not possible for you to physically put yourself in the environment you wish to test, try to visualize it with as much details as possible using all of your senses. Imagine yourself standing in each setting. What do you see? What do you hear? What do you smell? Who is present? What are you feeling? Allow yourself to fully experience the setting with an open mind. After a few minutes of meditation, observe your initial overall response. If you receive no clear indicators pointing you in a certain direction, let it go and try again another day. When the time is right, your intuition will provide you with exactly what you need to know in that moment.
