After spending tens of thousands of hours on research and interviews, what I discovered was that there are four types of relationships that affect your ability to listen to the signals that your intuition is sending you.
The reason that this happens is because you start to live your life through their values, their opinions, and their needs.
And when that happens, your entire focus is on them, with little to no focus on living YOUR life through YOUR values and doing what YOU want in life.
The first type of relationship is with those who put you through a traumatic experience in the past.
These poople shock you at an emotional level, and your emotions are then stuck, not being able to deal with the past, and this leads to you ignoring your intuition.
This was exactly what happened to speaker and entrepreneur Kiersten Hathcock, who was traumatized by her uncle assaulting Kiersten and throwing her intuition out of whack, with one decision leading to her leaving her marriage to start a relationship with a narcissist.
The second type of relationship is with those who start to make statements that judge you.
These statements are hurtful as they somehow get you to think that you are not worthy, which your intuition is telling you is so far from the truth.
But you ignore your intuition and start making decisions to prove yourself worthy, which then sends you down a rocky road.
This was the case for addiction survivor and blogger Ashley Kesner where one comment about her weight led to a severe problem with addiction.
The third type of relationship is one where you start to listen to the advice and opinions of others who don’t have your best interests at heart.
These are people you give you advice that is selfish in nature, but you have high regard for, which then has you ignore your intuition for the sake of the relationship.
This was what happened to both myself and speaker and branding expert Bobby Umar, making the decision to go into engineering because of bad advice.
The last type of relationship is one where you think you are unworthy, manifesting in imposter syndrome where you don’t think you have the skills or abilities to do things in life.
This is when you start to ignore your intuition to try and prove to others that you are better than everyone else.
This is what happened to addiction survivor and recovery specialist Robb Kelly where alcohol had given him a sudden boost of bravado.
This sent him down a very slippery slope, suffering from addiction and wanting to prove to others that he was better than anyone else.
Don’t waste any more time in your life living through the values and opinions of others by making sure that you are able to avoid these four types of relationships is by making sure that you take the time to discover what your intuitive signals are as they take under 14 seconds to move you away from these relationships.
That way, you start to live life on your own terms, making the decisions that lead to success in every area of your life, guided by your intuition.
