Step Two | Authority
We each have one of the eight Authorities, which is synonymous with the term 'intuition'. It explains the way you are designed to make important decisions from the inner wisdom of your energetic body.
If you have Emotional Authority, you need to wait until you feel cool, calm and collected before making big decisions. It is important to take your time to ensure there is not an emotional charge attached to the decision. Once you have reached an emotionally neutral place, the leading question is, "Will this make me happy?". The pressure to make quick decisions can feel challenging in this fast-paced world - it is all about trusting that divinely timed opportunities will always align with the timing of your Authority.
Those with Sacral Authority are designed to make big decisions based on their immediate gut feeling. This means that the moment a decision arises, your excitement level gives you a clear-cut answer as to whether it is right for you. It is a very visceral feeling that often elicits a vocal response of "uh-huh" or "nuh-uh". The sacral challenges a rationalising mind with its inexplicable responses. Remember that your desires are
your internal compass and will always give you an answer
that you can trust.
Splenic Authority is all about being totally present in your body the moment a big decision arises. Your intuition feels like an immediate, yet subtle instinct on what feels right. Bringing presence and stillness to the moment is so important because the Spleen only whispers to you once. These inexplicable instincts often defy logic and confuse the rational mind, which is why it is so important to know that you are designed to deeply trust yourself. Repeating the mantra "I trust myself" can be so nurturing and empowering.
EGO/HEART PROJECTED AUTHORITY
As a Projector with Ego/Heart Authority, you are designed to make important decisions based on whether an opportunity will benefit you as an individual. It is helpful to ask yourself, "Is my heart in this?" and "Does this excite and motivate me?". The right decision will feel like excitement paired with a clear sense that this will benefit you. An important practice is to reframe the word "selfish" to "enlightenedly selfish". When you make conscious decisions from your Authority, the outcome that benefits you will also be in the best interests of everyone.
EGO/HEART MANIFESTED AUTHORITY
As a Manifestor with Ego/Heart Authority, you are designed to make important decisions based on whether an opportunity will benefit you as an individual. It is helpful to ask yourself aloud, "Is my heart in this?" and "Does this excite and motivate me?". Whatever you blurt out might surprise you, but will always give you an answer that you can trust. An important practice is to reframe the word "selfish" to "enlightenedly selfish". When you make conscious decisions from your Authority, the outcome that benefits you will also be in the best interests of everyone.
G CENTRE AUTHORITY
Projectors with G Centre Authority, are designed to make important decisions by getting clear on whether it will bring them closer to their life's direction. You gain clarity by deliberating out loud, as it helps turn your jumbled thoughts into a clear linear sequence. This can be done alone or with others, purely to hear your own reflections - it is all about speaking out loud and hearing your truth as you speak. You can trust that a decision is right for you when you hear excitement in your voice and you feel pulled in the direction of that opportunity.
As a Projector with Mental/Environmental Authority, making decisions is a two-stage process. First, mentally analyse the situation and talk about it out loud, to hear and digest your own ruminations. The next stage is all about spending time in different environments that help you gain clarity. Seeking out these trusted places that feel correct for you will help you eventually reach a point of inner knowing, as things will feel unclear to you in the wrong environments. Asking yourself, "Does this feel right?" will always give you a reliable answer you can trust.
If you have Lunar Authority you are Reflector, and are designed to wait a 28-day lunar cycle before making big decisions. Although this can feel like a long time, honouring your Authority will bring you so much clarity. Practice releasing the fear that waiting means you will miss opportunities, by shifting to trust in the divine timing of your Authority. It is so supportive to reflect on how you are feeling about the decision each day of your lunar cycle, without judgment or trying to force a premature answer. When you finally reach your decision, it will feel so right within.
