The Shift to Desired, Gut, Intuitive Living

Desires, Intuition, The Shift

Meditation and self-reflection has really started a burning desire in my gut. For so long I have lived reactive and victimized by the happenings around me. My thoughts swirl in my head constantly saying things like

Why am I doing this every, single day? I want to be doing something else worthwhile.

Why is this bothering me so badly?

Why has all my energy been used to fight things that don’t matter.

Why am I not following my heart and gut?

The answers that I am getting in response is that:

I have been sitting back, not rocking the boat, afraid that I can’t do the things I want on my own, fear of failure, fear of the future, and fear of what others will think about my decisions.

There is also a recurring theme in my mind saying


But deeeep down, I know that I will figure it out.

and most of all:


I intend to do this by following my core desired feelings. This comes beautifully from The Desire Map sermons. It is probably the most simple thing I have ever heard, but I have for so long squelched my desires and been very self-restrictive that I can no longer express my desires.

This is all about to change.

I am going to shift. I am no longer going to live reactive.

I will be trusting my gut, my heart, and my intuition. I want to say goodbye to the quiet, obedient me and say hello to the new, authentic me. At any cost.

Because what I really, truly desire to feel is:

  1. Freedom
  2. Joy
  3. Love
  4. Secure
  5. Passion

And for me to live the way I want to feel, I must do and act in harmony with those top 5 desired feelings.

I know that I can’t wake up tomorrow and all the sudden everything I want be right in front of me, because truthfully what I envision is very, drastically different from my life today.

My shift will include doing less of what I am doing now and then actually living and doing more of what I want to do.

So what about you? Do you live based on the way you want to feel or do you live reactively like I have been doing for so long doing things that you really don’t want to do?

  1. I am in between. Some part of my parts are still reactive specially keeping myself sane and see in my actual work environment, some are about what I want for myself and being myself fully. I did not expect it to be so tough to transition actually, maybe because of the specific conditions of my life ? Anyway, I am not going to give up. Building that new life, one step at the time. So loved this post ! ❤ ❤ ❤ Thanks for this !


    1. Me too, girl! I think that’s why I desire so badly the shift to gut-intuitive living. I’m not all there yet because, well, I haven’t trusted my insticts long enough lol. I will have to learn a whole new way to live! Gonna be tough, but I can only see great things happening in living that way! So – I totally get where you are at…the awareness, honesty, and willingness to open your heart and mind will be very, very powerful!
