Happy 2019, we are just entering a new year, with new days filled with new opportunities and experiences.
I was supposed to end the year and start the new year at an ashram here in Australia, but this plan took a bit of a turn.
I truly believe that listing to our intuition is is so important for when we make decision or choose a path. I had a very serious experience of listing to my intuition this past week.

As I arrived at the ashram I had this worrying feeling in my stomach from the beginning, which I at first tried to ignore. I ignored this feeling of anxiety and stress for a day, even though this ashram turned out to be nothing like the online descriptions of it. I was all alone with the man running this place, ( which turned out to be his house with no signes of it actually being a retreat or ashram) in the middle of nowhere with the closest neighbour 3km away, and no phone connection. After spending two days at this place I was feeling more stressed than I ever had in my life, finding myself in a situation I was not prepared for.

A part of me was telling me to suck it up and stay because I planned to stay for 10 days and that I should stick to my plan, and hoping it would get better. But then my intuition was shouting at me to find a way to escape, my whole body was screaming for an escape. I did not trust this person at all, so asking him to take me back to civilisation was not an option at all.
I had no phone connection and was not able to call anyone, so my only option was to run, but I had a heavy backpack so I would never be able to get away during the day, as I was stuck with him at all times.
I therefore managed to pack up my things right before going to bed, then I was laying in bed listing to any confirming sounds that he was asleep. After 3 hours I carefully walked down to the floor he was sleeping on, I heard he was snoring, and I grabbed all my belongings and snuck out. I half run through this dirt road in the forest for 3km until I reach the closest neighbour ( which was a lovely lady that I thankfully had met the day before)
I ended up hiding in a teepee she had in her garden, spending the night crawled up there, and thankfully the next morning they helped me get away from this place being the most loving people, just what I needed at this point.

I`m so grateful for listing to my intuition and getting away from a situation that was a real unpleasant experience and I also believe that the universe is taking me in the direction that I should go in, so there was a purpose for this, teaching me that sticking to the plan is not always the best option, and testing my abilities to look after myself.

Instead of letting this experience eat me up I just turned it around to a positive, as I got to spend three amazing days with my lovely friend up the Sunshine Coast and then another 4 days at my other friends tranquil farm, so I feel so blessed and at ease now after having these relaxing days surrounded by amazing nature and great people.

Life is a constant wave of change, and if we get to stuck in a routine or obsessed with our initial plan we will miss out on great experiences that will come our way, experiences that was maybe what we truly should have experienced. So be open-minded to change and allow yourself to drift off from your original plan and listen to your intuition.
