“Where would she usually go when she’s feeling lost and low?”

“Well, she always goes to that place… beyond the creek. It’s quiet and gives her time to think.”

Where do you go when you feel lost and confused? Externally, one can go to places like a garden, the beach, or even a noisy pub. But internally, where does one go?

Sometimes, to find answers, we need solitude and a little magic dust called instinct. There’s always an inner voice that’s speaking to us. A voice that gets silenced by external voices and the way our mind is conditioned to think.

Instincts that get stabbed by External Voices

When the noise around you gets too high, you can block it out by increasing the volume of your inner voice. But how do you do that? Maybe one is not supposed to! Let the noise pass through because it’s inadvertently present whether you like it or not, and they are important too. You can’t keep blocking it out but you can make sure it doesn’t affect you.

You are stronger when your Spiritual Quotient is High.

You can manage complex situations when your Spiritual Quotient is Solid.

You can make informed decisions when your Spiritual Quotient is enhanced.

You can also listen to your instincts clearly because of your Spiritual Quotient or SiQ.

What is an instinct and why should it matter?

Ever heard of the saying that the answer is within you? That means good news! Imagine traveling across the world to identify the ultimate truth about yourself when all along, all you needed was you. You could answer that question with a little guidance and also by enhancing your SiQ.

That said, an instinct is an inner voice that conveys an important message to you. Something so important that it can help you make the right decision.

Instincts can be trusted but it also means that you can consider them while making a decision. That’s what your instincts can do as they are the inner voice to the sanctum of your sacred space. The place that you can go to whenever you need clarity.

Your instinct or inner voice works as a data point that can significantly complement your decision-making process. For instance, for a career-making decision, an individual may feel naturally inclined toward numbers. They like to calculate both mentally and with the use of a calculator. This person has a special, designated place in his or her room with a whiteboard put up so he or she can write numbers, calculate complex equations, and work out solutions. Now that this person knows what he or she loves to do, it becomes easier to figure out the type of career path they can pursue. However, once this is done, the person also needs to figure out the purpose they wish to achieve after following their interests.

Going further into this example, let’s say this person has the purpose of creating financial models to promote economic policies that can benefit their nation and society on all levels.

But this person is told that becoming a chartered accountant is a better option. It will provide more benefits to their career. However, the inner voice or instincts say otherwise, pulling this person more towards what they truly want to do.

Does an economist work better as a career option or a chartered accountant? A decision has to be made by considering the natural inclinations, the interests, and the inner voice. One can also seek professional advice and guidance from a career mentoring program.

Instincts matter because they are what guide you with clarity. You know in your heart that you walked in the right direction. This is why your SiQ when enhanced can allow you to acknowledge, appreciate, and applaud the effort your inner voice is putting into conveying important messages to you.

So, let your instincts provide itself as a data point to you. You don’t have to go by whatever it tells you but considering it along with reality, facts, interests, and natural inclinations can help you make more informed decisions in life. It’s a point you reach where you can say that at least you did your best to make that decision.
