Increasing your GQ is a Journey

Your level of GQ (Gut Intelligence)  can vary from situation to situation. In some cases, you may feel that your mind rarely chatters and you can trust your gut.  In other cases, you may feel lots of anxiety that keeps you doubting your Self .

Your level of Gut Intelligence is directly proportionate to your attachments to the outcome. When you have high levels of attachment to safety, security, love or belonging with a person or situation, you will have low levels of Gut Intelligence. This is because your heart is so attached on how you want something to be that you will have difficulty embracing the truth.

Letting go of our attachments and our need for people and things to be the way we need them to be is a journey and an exercise to increase Gut Intelligence.  You know you need to let go when you feel anxiety.  Anxiety is an emotion that tells us we are afraid we are not going to get what we want. When this is the case, we can often start trying to control a situation, instead of just observing what the reality is.

Next time your gut gets pinged, breathe into it and just observe what is happening around you and within you.  See what shifts!
