How to Align Intuition With Your Goals


Do you ever feel overwhelmed trying to juggle all your business ideas, projects, and plans… especially while wanting to feel aligned with your intuition? As passionate Soulopreneurs, our minds race with dreams we long to create (and want to feel good doing it).

The number of goal worksheets I’ve completed over the years – vision boards I’ve created – are countless. 

Yet that bursting excitement always gave way to the same result: goals left unaccomplished, unfinished projects piling up, and aggravation from lack of progress. 

(It’s just the truth!)

I used to think something was wrong with me. Why did I lack the follow-through to achieve my goals when I felt so motivated to envision them?  

I didn’t understand then that goal-setting requires more than pouring grand ideas onto paper. To set goals that fuel – rather than drain – our soul’s purpose, we need a conscious process aligning mind, body, and spirit. 

What is an example of intuition? 

A key example of intuition is when sudden insights align with our personal and professional goals. Many years ago, I stumbled upon using my intuition with a thoughtful strategy to work toward my goals, which has been life-changing. I move through my days with ease instead of that turbulent push-pull energy. 

Here are the three main elements that gave me the structure … 

Reflective Journaling – Checking in with my intuition and inner wisdom is crucial when goal-setting. I tap into subconscious beliefs, patterns, and fears through stream-of-consciousness writing. Often, the personal development work I need to do first reveals itself.

Try asking yourself open questions like… 

  • What is currently feeling misaligned in my life? 
  • What do I need right now physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually?  
  • What inner work might I need to prioritize before reaching for outward achievements?
  • Does everything I’m working toward align with my intuition?

Honoring Small Wins – We get so focused on the finish line that we brush past the tiny triumphs. I now take time to acknowledge and celebrate each little win. It could be as simple as appreciating progress on a project, acting on an intimidating to-do, or showing self-discipline by sticking to a routine.  

Take a moment regularly to recognize what you have accomplished on your goals rather than judging what hasn’t happened yet. This will cultivate gratitude and self-encouragement to fuel you forward.

Planning from Intuition  – There’s an art to structuring step-by-step plans while leaving room for spontaneity. I’ve learned my weekly schedule needs flexibility to adapt as new inspiration strikes. Yet, my larger goals require milestones for pacing and gauging progress. 

Use the SMART model when laying out goals, making sure they are: 

  • Specific (What is your intuition telling you?)
  • Measurable (What steps do you need to take?)
  • Achievable (Is it possible without overwhelming yourself?)
  • Relevant (What is important to you?)
  • Time-bound (When do you want to accomplish this?)

Then, get as detailed as possible when making your schedule or action plans. Outline distinct next-step items needed to reach those milestones. And while you’re planning and setting goals, check your intuition. How does the plan feel? 

What are 3 characteristics of intuitive thinking?

First, intuitive thinking relies on a rapid processing system formed through experience to reach quick judgments without extended analysis. Second, intuitive conclusions are shaped by emotions and “gut feelings” rather than solely logic. I’ve realized that goal progression has as much to do with energy and intuitive alignment as it does strategic planning, as when our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual selves work in harmony, our intuitive channel widens, allowing us to download ideas and accelerate toward our vision by “swimming with the natural current.” 

However, blocks on any level can hinder this momentum, like trying to paddle against the flow. Third, intuitive thinking functions best when we maintain health and alignment on all levels through self-care practices. And finally, by fueling the body properly, addressing limiting beliefs, and making space for spiritual connection, we support intuitive thinking to channel transformational insights.

How to activate your intuition?

You activate by trusting your intuition. Allow space for Spirit’s support and intervention! 

Overall, I’ve noticed my state of being now matters much more than what I do in nurturing my creations to life. The vibrancy I cultivate inside radiates outward to influence all I put out in the world.  

When I show up with joy, inspiration, and gratitude, people gravitate toward my purpose, ideas flourish, and my intuition activates AND strengthens.

I’d love to hear what BIG goal you’re working towards and how you plan to trust your intuition during the process! Drop it in the comments below, and tell me all about it! I want to root for you!
