I've read that to help us Manifesting Generators make decisions, someone needs to ask us questions that result in a simple "Yes" or "No" answer. i.e. "Would you like to go to the beach today?" as opposed to "What would you like to do today?".
For those with sacral authority: What do you do if you need to make a decision on something but no one is around to ask you Yes/No questions?
Do you ever compare two activities such as 'Going for a run' vs 'Writing an article' and you end up choosing the one that feels more comfortable for you? Well making decisions using your Sacral is the same thing. Whichever option FEELS more compelling is the one I choose.
Of course this only applies if you HAVE TO make a decision. If you are making a big life decision and the more compelling option isn't a "F*** YES!" then pause to consider whether you should be doing either at all. It might be a case that a better option or a completely new inspiration is on the horizon.
I remember being in high school and not wanting to write an essay one evening. I distinctly remember comparing 'writing an essay' against 'going for long run'. I chose the long run!
Can't feel it?
Here's a drill you can use to get in touch with your bodily response so you can learn to recognise what your sacral yearns for you to do. The more you do this the more sensitive and aware you'll become.
Use the Coin Flip approach on every small decision throughout your day:
- Grab a coin and assign a meaning to each side i.e. Heads means 'Burrito for lunch' and Tails means 'Caesar Salad for lunch'.
- Flip a coin and feel your reaction to the result. Go with the result if you feel good/relieved and go with the opposite if you have a hit of disdain for the result.
This instant bodily response happens so fast that your mind doesn't have time to interfere. Trust whatever that bodily response was as that is your true feeling.
I've rarely regretted going with my gut feel. I've often regretted a purely mental decision.
Getting back to Sacral Authority
Once you've used these techniques a few times and felt the bodily response, start to make your assessment before using either technique. Use the techniques to check your answer.
Likewise, after you make each decision and take action on it, check how you feel then. All this biofeedback will help to sharpen your Sacral Authority awareness.
