How strong is your intuition? Are you really connected with yourself on a deeper level? We are all born with intuition but then lose it to the outside world which tells us what we should be doing. But did you know you can reconnect with your intuition by quietly listening to what your body and mind need?  

In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I speak with Kelley Hoag, an alignment coach and the founder of Root to Rise Health. She empowers men and women to become the authentic intuitive leaders of their lives using spiritual alignment and practical habits. Listen in to learn how rebuilding your intuition will lead you to self-love and self-trust. 

Key Takeaways: 

  • How we take ourselves out of alignment and weaken our intuition by listening to the outside world.  
  • How to love yourself by first trusting yourself and allowing intuitive guidance.  
  • The power of focusing on what you need and not what you should be doing.  
  • How to experience and observe your emotions to strengthen your intuition and get in touch with your body on a deeper level.  
  • How to start reconnecting with your intuition with small practice like a deep breathe every morning before building it up to meditation.
