Have you ever been with a guy and he seemed to have it all together?

He was caring, loving, generous, present and aware and you had such an amazing time together. But then some of his issues popped up out of NOWHERE. Maybe his issues were some of the dreaded and common ones we predictable and difficult men go through like these:
- He started getting restless and he talked about how he wasn't really ready to settle down.
- He didn't see things getting as serious as you did.
- The connection started fading. He didn't try to connect to you much anymore and share his intimate feelings.
- You weren't a priority. He wanted to spend his time with his friends or other people and didn't value the time you spent together like you did.
- He started flirting, talking to or even getting together with other women even if he wasn't technically "cheating".
Recognize any of these? What's going on here? Here's where your "magic" comes in. The magic I'm talking about here isn't that far out stuff about conjuring up spells or changing into an animal. Let's leave that kind of magic to Harry Potter and your imagination. The magic I'm talking about is different and exists in the real world, but it's just as amazing. And it centers around an important idea:
You instinctively know more about what's going on in the world around you than you or your conscious mind fully recognizes.
And here's the kicker:
You ALREADY HAVE this magical ability. All you have to do is tune into it.
Easier said than done, right? So how does that work?
Your mind is constantly picking up on information from your environment, even when you're not really conscious of it. And all that information is being "processed" over and over to try and calculate the risk, danger, and expectations from your environment to try to find a way towards the outcome you want. So what am I talking about?
You're probably already familiar with the word. But stop right there. When you hear the term "intuition", it's easy to attach all of your previous feelings and beliefs about it and dismiss it as some kind of new age "flaky" stuff. I hear you, but indulge me here by keeping an open mind for a few minutes.
You'd be cheating yourself by not spending the couple of minutes or so that it takes to open your mind to the natural power of your intuition and how to tune into it. I don't have to tell you, but MEN ARE BAD COMMUNICATORS when it comes to their feelings, emotions and intentions around love and relationships. So knowing that men are often this way, you have a choice here:
You can either do nothing about it and continue to be shocked, frustrated, surprised and hurt by the things you find out about men after the fact.

You can start to create a more perceptive and insightful way of being in your own life and relationships by using more the natural intuitive abilities you already have.
Which one will it be?
