The secret of fortune is joy in our hands. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you could picture your intuition as a person, what would he or she look like? If you sat down together for dinner, what is the first thing he or she would tell you? (Author: Susan Piver)
Say hello to my intuition: The Black Swan
OK, my intuition probably looks more like me than Natalie Portman as the black swan. In reality, I thought she looked better in a tutu than I would (although I do own more than one tiara). I believe that my intuition resembles the black swan because I can dress and act as society dictates but under the facade, there is a strong and willful woman who wants to get out and strut.
You can view Natalie Portman’s alter-ego in the movie The Black Swan as a big hot mess that slowly wins over Natalie’s body and soul. Everything she was afraid of was embodied in the swan. As the character continually tries to be perfect and good, the swan becomes rebellious, racy and unafraid of living freely.
Stay for a Nosh
I am not sure that my intuition would have the time to sit down for dinner with me. She is extremely busy and sought after by many. Perhaps we could sit down for a cup of coffee and a biscotti. My intuition would tell me to get up off my butt and live! I am wasting time feeling depressed or overly concerned about things beyond my control. Be in the now. If I am unhappy about my weight, put down the doughnut and get moving (I actually listened to her on that one and have so far lost 27 pounds)
She would tell me to get hold of my inner diva, have fun, don’t forget my friends, and dance till I am silly. Then once all doubt is gone from my system, I will truly be able to focus on what I want/need to do in order to find joy.
