I myself have lost touch with my intuition. I have listened to friends and family who only wanted the best for me but at the end of the day I have always known what was best for me even when my ego thought I didn't. Recently, I've began connecting to my intuition again through yoga, deep meditations and continuously checking in with my body.
Joey (Johanna) is my cousin who is a RYT, RPYT & Reiki Master Practitioner! She has inspired me to add these tools to my tool belt because I have seen the profound outcomes from incorporating these practices whether it be for myself or for my clients. Nutrition and proper supplementation can only do so much to heal. They are an important part of the puzzle but we have to address stuck energy within the body. Get out of our minds into our bodies.
Joey and I sat down to chat about where the heck to begin tapping into our intuition. Joey shares some techniques she loves to incorporate! Ultimately, our intuition is our best guide throughout life - so why not connect daily?
