" Part of noticing intuitive signs, signals, and those gentle nudges is becoming more conscious of what you’re doing in your everyday life. This week, if you’re having a cup of tea, then just drink your tea. If you’re enjoying a meal, then just eat your meal. If you’re walking, just walk. Appreciate, focus, and be in the moment. By doing so, you’ll remain in the powerful present, and that way, your intuition has a better chance of getting your attention".

And that is what is happening now: we are going slower in order to go deeper in order to go faster in the direction of urgently needed change. The conscious midlife is not an end but a new beginning."
