This past year I’ve been feeling that I’m on the verge of a big change.

My intuition whispers in my ear that it is time for me to leave my nest. To explore.

What do you do when intuition whispers? You follow your intuition.

‘Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves.’ Rainer Maria Rilke

The first stop is a trip to Ecuador – a ‘no words’ can describe trip created and operated by The Pachamama Alliance.

‘What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.’  ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

It’s an incredible opportunity to spend time with the Achuar people of Ecuador’s Amazon rainforest, one of the most remote and intact indigenous cultures on the planet. We will directly experience their land, knowledge, and wisdom.

The 9 people with whom I am traveling have shown up at this time and place because they feel called to do so. I can hear it in their voices, in the words they speak and write. They are on a quest ~ as am I.

I will be out of touch with the Western world – no phone, no computer, e-mail, FB, Twitter, and blogging. For three weeks.

I embark on this journey with Beginners Mind ~ and a knowing that being in the rainforest and spending time with the Achuar people is the best gift I can give myself.

My intuition says it is so. I am listening.

NOW IT’S YOUR TURN. Share an experience where your intuition gave you a ‘nudge’ and you listened. What were the results?
