Trust Your Gut
advent reflection on Luke 1:44

I am writing to remind you of things you already know. You have within you an innate sense of what is beneficial and right for you. Trust that instinct.
Isn’t it true that when you encounter a person who is authentic and kind that you can feel it within you? And likewise, when you meet someone who is superficial and ingratiating that you can sense that, too? Your gut doesn't lie.
When you are faced with a decision, one of the easiest ways to uncover your truth is to imagine yourself living into your options. How does it feel in your heart and body when you imagine Choice A? And then, Choice B? The answer is often obvious, but the thinking mind can sometimes block the best choice because it seems impossible or impractical.
Yet yours is not to know how the choice will be enacted. Your part is simply to consent to the best choice. Love within you will take care of the unfolding.
Remember, this moment is an opportunity to connect to Love, and therefore, to live into the fullness of who you are.
As always, do what best awakens you to love,
