Up until 31st March 2020 I worked in sales for seven years and as part of one particular training course focused around Neuro Linguistic Programming or NLP, we discovered how we each have our own “map of the world” that is formed and developed from the moment we are born. When we hit the age of seven years our belief system, our moral compass is pretty much locked in. Now that doesn’t mean it cannot change but it is believed that all we have learnt up to this point is sealed within us, and this is formed by our environments in terms of how we are raised, the experiences we encounter. All of which shape us into the human we eventually become, and it is only as we get older and our natural curiosity takes over, that we may begin to question the very beliefs and morals that we once held so dear, especially if they do not align with our truest truth deep down

It’s called intuition for a reason; you know that feeling you get when you meet someone new and you can’t put your finger on it but your gut tells you that this person is not to be trusted? Well that is your body giving you some truthfulness
