Me, myself and I

A poem I wrote during a long train journey yesterday. Over the last few weeks, I was told to “trust my instinct” because I often act too safe, unsure and always ask others what they think.

I listened to my instinct last week and I already know it saved my life.

I aim to continue to switch brain off from time to time, and close my eyes to listen to my instinct, my gut, my Third Eye. It is the best relationship with myself I have ever experienced, it feels safer than thinking with brain or heart only. Brain will always be there, heart too, but I am learning to reset/reprogram brain and heart from all I was ever taught, and use them to support the “gut” feeling in the best way possible. Here is how I listen to my “gut feeling”:

  • Breath in and out slowly a few times closing my eyes laying down or sat in a quiet space
  • Write down how I am feeling about a particular situation I am trying to make a decision on (words like calm, happy, distressed, lost, anxious, agitated, unsure)
  • Close the page and wait 24hours or more if I can afford to be patient
  • Repeat the same process and compare how I am now feeling, if the feeling is the same, I take the decision my gut is telling me. If the feeling has changed, it deserves some assistance from my brain and perhaps communicating the feeling for clarity.

Me, myself and I

Do you hear me? I am there telling you to do it.

I am part of you and I won’t go away.

Heart and I know what you want, but brain tries to convince you otherwise.

Do you hear me? I am there telling you to trust me.

I am your friend and I want you to know you can do it.

Heart and I know what you need, but brain tries to convince you otherwise.

I am your friend and I want you to know you should do it.

Why won’t you connect with me? I am telling you that it is safe, but my voice isn’t always as loud as I want it to be.

Heart and I know what you need, but brain tries to convince you otherwise.

Do you see me? I am real and I am as unique as you are. No one knows what you and I feel. I am your friend, I am safe.

Do you feel me? I have always been here in you, since you were born and I always be a part of you. Sorry if I make you unwell sometimes, you just don’t seem to hear me?

Heart and I know what you need, but brain tries to convince you otherwise.

Do you understand what I have to say? I am sorry if I send you messages you don’t want to hear, but you must trust me and acknowledge me. I won’t go away, I am part of you.

Brain tries to convince you, please don’t listen.

I am here to protect you and above all, to make you the happiest you can be, regardless of what brain think.
