View Full POST
I am constantly discussing Intuition with my clients and I may sound like a broken record, but I have
I have a sister that lives nearby here in Florida and her life has been riddled with problems, pain, alcohol and mental issues. Over the years I have help this sister in EVERY way possible, money, home, car, support, love, dedication, baby sitting. I also enabled her because my love for her was so great. I allowed her to destroy relationships, come between family members, and hurt me endlessly.
I stopped enabling and helping her about 4 years ago. I made a decision that I could be there to lend an ear and support her through caring and listening, but that was where I stopped. My amazing wife, not understanding the pain and anguish that she had put me through offered to let her live with us at one point. My gut instantly got nauseous and I vehemently rejected the idea. I listened to my inner guide and knew that it was the wrong choice.
Fast forward a year and the reason for this post!! On Saturday I received numerous calls from my sister with anguishing voicemails pleading for help admitting she thought she was having a nervous breakdown. Finally after much deliberation and hours later I called her back.
While on the phone, I did something bold: I invited her to stay with us for one month and drive her to work and also help pay to get her car fixed, I told her I would be there on Monday to pick her up. I hung up and I was at peace with my decision.
Of course, Adriane thought I was nuts!! The following day I sat and had a long discussion with my wife, Adriane, about the situation with my sister. I explained that I have been working on intuition and following my inner guide, I felt at peace with my decision. She cried and said her intuition felt completely different and that she could see no good coming from this.
