Second Guessing

When we second guess ourselves, we are expressing doubt in following our own intuition. Why would we do that?

Perhaps we doubt our choice because we do not know what lies ahead. If we believe that there are spirit guides and ancestors who are looking out for us, then they probably prompted us to skip this opportunity in order to be positioned for a better one later.

Even if we are not thinking in those terms, sometimes we doubt our own gut instinct maybe because we did not spend a long time analyzing, just going with the feel. I find that often, my intuition just rapidly digested my choices without an out loud discussion, so that the final decision simply felt comfortable. If you dig, you will probably find reasons that support your intuition. Going the concise route has become my preference.

Could be our suconscious mind just automatically processed it for us so that we can acknolwede this intuition and just move ahead. Saves a lot of time and energy that can be used for other things.

Times when we need to gather data and analyze it, do this part first and then along the way our intuition kicks into gear.

We need to train ourselves not to second guess. We have to keep reminding ourselves that these are our choices and they will turn out well.

Instead of second guessing, use that energy to look ahead and plan our next move.
