[35:39] If you’re struggling with listening to your inner wisdom, this piece of advice is for you!
Listening to your inner wisdom doesn’t happen overnight. You need to be consistent and it needs to be something that’s spacious.
It needs to be something that your subconscious can start to rely on as a way to remember and show yourself that you are creating this space that you’re open to hearing all of yourself – not just your rational brain that’s very loud, but also the subtle messages that you need and the cues that your body is sending you.
Here are some ideas to get you started:
– A regular therapist appointment
– A regular conversation with a friend
– A hike that you do every month
– A quarterly retreat
– An hour of meditation in the morning
