As a Personal Fitness Coach, I work with individuals who want to achieve more flow and balance in their life. By exploring and accepting your own personal unique attributes, experiences, creative thinking, and personal needs, you will be guided, motivated and inspired to create positive life changes.
Albert Einstein’s insight came from intuition and inspiration, not from logic or mathematics. “When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come close to the conclusion that the gift of imagination has meant more to me than any talent for absorbing absolute knowledge. All great achievements of science must start from intuitive knowledge. I believe in intuition and inspiration…. At times I feel certain I am right while not knowing the reason.” “Imagination is more important than knowledge”(Calaprice, 2000, 22, 287, 10)
He embraced his intuition and didn’t let his analytical mind interfere with how he thought or why. Inspiration is a feeling charged by emotion, not a thought.
Imagine if you stopped for a moment. If you stopped thinking and allowed yourself to be inspired by something or someone. What if you simply trusted your intuition, that feeling that cannot be explained? Without a doubt, you just know it’s right. You would be amazed! If you knew how to open your mind, your thoughts to what you want or need in life, happiness would be in abundance for you. Not everything in life is measurable to an exact science, despite what society wants you to subscribe to. However, the only person you need to quantify anything to, is yourself.
