Why you can’t think your way through an emotional question.
One of the most common questions people ask me when we are deep into the questions about their life’s path is, “But how will I know, like truly know?”
In some ways it is an excellent question. Many of us were raised and live in a cognitively-focused culture, the brain privileged above all else. Prove it to me, baby. Build the case. Show me the evidence.

We all have the capacity to tap into emotional, somatic, and intuitive wisdom. Further, often it can counter the wisdom of our brains or the cultural messaging. It leaves us thinking: What then?

Every human is their own universe.

It makes sense then that structures based in power and control, such as governments, structured religions, and corporations create their own brand of the “truth.” Do it this way and you can…
