Can guilt cause health issues and disconnect you from your intuition?

Were you an intuitive child? Do you recall having hyper-vigilant senses and could feel your surroundings, other’s emotions, or need’s around you?

You may have needed a highly tuned nervous system for survival from some childhood trauma or you were the oldest child and had more responsibility at an early age. There are heaps of reasons that our intuition can get severed. 

Our nervous system is a component of our knowing, reasoning and how we respond to our lives. Our nervous system ANTICIPATES our needs. It is like our own radar, GPS system and inner Buddha.

However, guilt can shame can cut us off from trusting this GPS system.

Guilt is a conditioned (learned) emotion. Certain factors may make it more likely a person experiences chronic or excessive guilt, which could include their culture, family, or religious upbringing. If parents consistently make a child feel guilty or consistently withhold praise, for example, the child may come to feel that nothing they do is ever good enough. This can lead to a guilt complex.

In general, there are three different types of guilt.

  • Reactive guilt: Reactive guilt happens when a person believes they have acted against either their own personal beliefs of what is morally good or the standards society has for acceptable behavior.
  • Anticipatory guilt: This guilt is the result of thinking about acting against personal moral standards or the standards of society. A person may choose not to take certain action because they know it is wrong or believe it may hurt others.
  • Existential guilt: This guilt can be more complicated. Existential guilt can describe a person’s feelings for general injustice, or the idea that “Life isn’t fair.” It can also describe the guilt a person feels for the negative impact they may have on the lives of others.

In my work, I have noticed a major correlation between guilt, gut health, hormone imbalances and weight gain. And with the chronic state of stress, we may be experiencing this can be compounded. Our nervous system connects all of our organs and when guilt takes over, the nerves become strained and aren’t functioning optimally. 

Besides nourishing food, stress-reducing techniques and movement, we also need to strengthen our intuitive muscles.

Just like any other habit we want to enhance, we need to practice.

Intuition is how your soul speaks to you.

It already knows what to do. And as you learn to listen to, trust and follow the guidance your intuition gives … it will lead you step-by-step, moment-by-moment to the people, resources, actions and inspirations that will help you create the life you dream of – the life you’re meant to live.
