So, you’ve been duped. Again!

Somehow, you overrode that funny feeling in your belly yet another time. Maybe you accepted to do something that didn’t feel quite right or you let someone take control of the situation when it wasn’t in your best interest. Again.

Maybe someone asked you to do something for them when a voice in you was saying: “absolutely not”. But, you didn’t have any rational explanation to listen to it. Again.

Maybe someone said they would meet you there, then bailed. And this is the third time they have done this to you. Regardless of the situation, you went for the bait.

Sorry to say: You did it again.

And when you did, you concluded for the umpteenth time: “Hey, that was not cool”. That did not serve me at all. Or worse: you don’t even clearly see it as a problem. But, you do notice how completely drained you are now.

Well, guess what, that has to do with leaky boundaries. And when we dig a little deeper, what do we see? Well, that little voice in you was actually trying to get your attention by waving a wee red flag at you, but you didn’t notice it. Or, you simply didn’t want to notice it.

To notice things means that we have to take a stand. We have to speak up. Maybe the very delusions we don’t want to acknowledge will actually fall! Ouch.

But ultimately, what it reveals is that your “intuition” has been wounded, meaning it has been shut out or altogether abandoned. Even if it tries to talk to you, well, you don’t take it seriously. You don’t actually “feel” it. Or simply, don’t value it.
What that means, is that somewhere along the way, it was wounded. And when your intuition is wounded, it shows up in your energy fields as poor boundaries. You actually have holes and dents in your energy fields. You either don’t “feel” when something is off or simply don’t hear the S.O.S. when it is sent.

The Good News: You can heal this.

Who wants to operate in the world with loose or pierced boundaries? Who wants a pierced shield to protect their well-being or sanity?

The Outcome: You just leaked your good and useful energy forces to someone who is NOT respecting you.

Perhaps, even stealing your energy stash. Literally, co-opting your energy to serve their agenda as opposed to your own which leaves you feeling like crap.

Take a moment to look inside and ask yourself truthfully, “Is my intuition wounded?”

And if the answer that arises is ‘Yes.’, you can be sure that it will show up in your poor sense of boundaries.
