Business intuition is a hot topic right now. In our increasingly fast-paced world your business intuition can help you keep up and make your business thrive for years to come. Intuition is your in-built system for sensing what’s coming. Your business intuition is brilliant at predicting issues and problems before they become serious. It’s also essential for the next wave of innovation, including any which will affect you and your business. Learn to listen to your intuitive business side and you can use it to succeed in business. You will then be the one creating the changes, rather than being affected by them. To help you get started here are seven signs your business intuition is talking to you:
- You keep hearing the same subject in conversations or on your media.
Your intuition works through patterns so if you notice a pattern cropping up in your world, pay attention to it! This is a powerful sign your business intuition is talking to you, especially if the subject relates to your business. This sign happens most commonly when there’s a big decision to make. Focusing on your intention to find the best option is a great way to trigger your intuition to assist you in business decision making. Your intuition can supply the answer, but not always in the way you expect. If you keep hearing the same subject mentioned it’s probably because this is where you’ll find the answer you need.
- The thought of someone you haven’t seen in years keeps coming into your mind.
Only the other day a client mentioned to me she’d had persistent thoughts of an old colleague. She’d lost touch with them but a week later she learned he’d passed. Stories like these are common with general intuition but have a special significance in business intuition. If you keep thinking of someone connected to your business, either in currently or the past, it’s often a sign your intuitive leadership is required. Leadership puts the best team together and knows who to task with what and when. If your business intuition keeps pulling a particular person into your awareness it may be they, or their ideas, are needed for your team to succeed.
- You feel a strong sensation in your chest.
Your soul seat is in your upper chest. When you get a strong sensation in this area it’s usually connected with something that affects you and your authenticity directly. This is an intuitive sign your integrity may be affected by your business decision making. If the feeling is positive, it’s a good sign. If it’s negative, you may need to consider how you can achieve what you need to in a different way.
- You feel a strong sensation in your gut.
Your hara is in your lower abdomen. When you get a strong sensation in this area it’s usually connected with your goals and life-path. This is an intuitive sign your goals and dreams may be affected. If you pay attention to this sign it may help you succeed in business with maximum ease. If the feeling is positive, go for it. If it’s negative, then your intuition is supporting your business decision making by letting you know you’ll need to find a different path to your goal.
- You feel confident and happy even if you’re not sure of the decision.
Intuitive leadership means you often have to make decisions without all the information. This means you can’t be sure it’s the best choice. Yet if you feel good about your choice it’s a sign you’re using your intuition in business successfully. Your decision may not work out the way you expect but this is a sign it’ll work out well, one way or another.
- You feel uneasy about your choice even though you’re sure about the decision.
This sign can be one of the hardest to pay attention to, especially if the choice is one you’ve made before and it worked out well. Yet one of the most important ways your business intuition can help you succeed in business is in avoiding unnecessary problems. Sometimes things change without you realising it and if you’re feeling uneasy it may be an intuitive sign there’s something going of which you’re not aware. If you’re feeling this it’s time to check and re-check what’s happening.
- The same opportunity keeps popping up.
Your business intuition is also there to help you grow and achieve your dreams. If the same opportunity keeps popping up it may be a sign this will help take you to the next level so you can succeed in business. Your business intuition knows the way to success doesn’t always lie along the tried-and-well-trodden path but most often in the unexpected. If the same opportunity keeps presenting itself ask yourself how would it support your business. You may be wonderfully surprised by the answer.
Any of us who have lived through the GFC know that the world economy goes up and down. It does this in regular, if not predictable, cycles. These cycles have a close connection with the state of the collective consciousness (for more information please see the post https://www.fractology.info/a-while-longer/ ).
After the GFC things were in recession for a long time. Things were tough for a lot of us. Many of us were consequently focused on matters of negative gain. We were in so much fear and pain we just wanted for it to be gone.
Now the cycle has turned and much of the world is beginning to move once again into expansion, though it may be a year or two before this fully gets underway. During an expansionist time we don’t generally want to think about the negatives; we would much rather focus on the positive.
While this is a wonderful thing, in this current cycle we would benefit much more by focusing on what positives we want now so we can get ourselves aligned. In this way we will be able to gain the maximum benefit as the cycle moves forward.

In 2017 we’re going to be holding another Wesak retreat. This is to mark the upturn in the energy trend we’ve been experiencing over the last few years.
We spoke about that trend in the post A while longer . . .
If you haven’t read that post yet, it would be good to do it now.
In 2017 we’ll be moving into new realities. At that time the co-creative, interdependent energies will begin to grow stronger. With this energy we will be able to finally truly begin to manifest into the physical the new realities we have all been working towards for so long.
We will be holding the Wesak retreat in Ankhor Wat, as we spoke about in an earlier post. The retreat will be from Thursday 25th to Sunday 28th May. We are looking to finalise details over the next few months.
If you want to look into travel plans for yourself, the closest place to the temples is Siem Reap. Unfortunately this is not the best time of the year to visit this place as it is the beginning of the rainy season. However, this is the time when the energy is on the turn so this is when we are going.
The rainy season can be a dramatic time, but the weather can be hot so we will be looking to stay at a place with air conditioning and a generator as there are, apparently, often black outs at this time of the year with everyone using the air conditioning. On the plus side, there will hopefully be fewer other visitors this time of the year.
We all want many different things in life and, as a consequence, it seems we are so often pulled in so many different directions it is exhausting. It seems impossible for us to have everything we want.
Yet it is possible. The more aligned our path in life is to our true essence, to the most complete expression of who We Truly Are, the easier and more graceful our progress becomes. There are three keys that can help us create this. Each key is a point of focus on our path and if these three are aligned all things along our path tend to fall into place.
Our ‘to do’ list are things which we already know how to do, we just have to organise ourselves to get them done. Usually these are things that we need to do over the next couple of months, at most.
Our goals differ from our ‘to do’ list because they require us to learn and grow, to master some new skill or overcome some old obstacle. That’s the point, actually, because our goals motivate us to grow. Generally, most goals will take us two to five years to complete.
Our dreams differ from our goals because they aren’t real to us right now. That’s the point. When we focus on our goals we’re generally taught that we need an ‘action plan’ for them and that we have to consider what is possible. Dreams enable us to consider the impossible and give ourselves permission to play with the idea of what it would be like if we had a life which is currently out of our reality. By allowing ourselves to play with these extraordinary ideas we begin to connect with them. Without dreams we wouldn’t be able to grow beyond our current reality. Considering what our life could be like in thirty to forty years is a good way to tap into our dreams. That length of time is enough for our minds to be able to accept that anything is possible.
Yet our dreams give an overall alignment to our life. They enable us to find the best way to align our goals and our ‘to do’ list. It is the long focus of our dreams which create the easiest and most graceful alignment of our path, and also enable us to go beyond our current reality.
Often in so much less time than thirty to forty years! If only we give ourselves permission to dream of our happiest life.
Abundance is not just a state of mind, it is whole skill set. Part of the skill set of abundance starts with knowing that there is always a way, there is always an answer. In fact, it is knowing that the answer already exists, if we’re able to shift our perspective enough to see it.
Here are two recent examples of this:
My sister realised the ambition of a lifetime last week and left for a trip to Antartica. So cool! (Literally and metaphorically.) The night before she was due to get up at the crack of dawn to get on a plane to New Zealand, from where her boat will leave, she wanted to send a card to some relatives of her husband. All good, but the difficulty was she wanted to paste a four-leaf clover into the card before she sent it, and she couldn’t find any glue. It’s probably somewhere in my niece’s room, but as my niece does teenage housekeeping her whole room is a bombsite and the glue may or may not one day be excavated. So my sister was getting anxious about getting this small job done before she left.
I happened to be staying with her that night. I didn’t have any glue with me. It’s not something I usually carry, and it was too late to go to any of the shops. So what to do?
Get stressed and hunt through my niece’s bedroom? Give up and leave the job incomplete? Or assume there’s an answer and let it come to you?
I chose the last option. A minute later I suggested she use nail polish, which my niece had and knew where that was. It worked very well.
This is why this is a skill of abundance. When we realise there’s always a way there’s never any need for the answer to be ‘no’. There’s always a way for it to be ‘yes’.
In the same way, I remember when I was young that the scientists considered it impossible that there was water to be found anywhere in the solar system except on the earth. This was one of the largest obstacles to the thought of humanity having a permanent presence anywhere except on this planet. But now they’re finding water is more abundant than they ever believed possible. When they started looking for ways to make such a venture possible the ways began to turn up. It’s even on the moon, and a new satellite is going to find out just how much.

I first began the Wesak retreats in 2003. The purposes of the retreats in those days was to support the evolution of the collective consciousness in its shift from codependency to interdependency. We knew, at the time, that a huge shift was due to take place in 2012 and we were working to hold space to enable this shift to be as easy and graceful as possible. Since then we have not held another retreat, though we are pleased to support those who have held retreats of their own at the appropriate time.
Since 2012 the energy that has been coming into the planet during the Wesak period has been more about increasing our awareness of interdependency and the skills involved. The qualitative shift that is required in moving from a right / wrong perspective to one where everything is understood to serve in one context or another is part of the reason why there has been a lot of confusion around in the last few years. Whenever we learn something new we go through a period of confusion until the new skill begins to make sense to us. This is where we are at currently.
I’m sorry if you haven’t been enjoying it. I confess I haven’t found it all that comfortable myself. There is good news and bad news, which happens to be the same news; this period of confusion is not due to finish until around Wesak in 2017. Which is good or bad depending on how you’re feeling about the current confusion and continuing to deal with it for a while longer.
Here at Fractology we are aware that Wesak in 2017 will be significant as a consequence. We are considering holding a retreat again during that year. Our current thought is to hold it in Angkor Wat, in Cambodia, which is a powerful site of sacred geometries with deep connections on many levels. We will give you more details as they come to hand.
