How to Trust Your Vibes with Sonia Choquette

Meet Sonia Choquette


Sonia Choquette is a NY Times bestselling author and international speaker, widely regarded as today’s preeminent leader on the subject of intuition. Reawakening humanity’s sixth sense is Sonia’s mission, passion, and gift. Rising up from her family’s challenging circumstances, she began offering intuitive readings to adults at the age of 12 and started her training with two master teachers in metaphysical arts and spiritual law. Since then, Sonia has traveled the globe for over four decades, presented on the world’s biggest stages, and collaborated with leading spiritual teachers and media platforms to help millions reconnect with their innate intuitive intelligence. Sonia’s approach to teaching intuition is one-of-a-kind. Instead of drawing from rigid scientific or spiritual dogma, she empowers her students to feel and listen to their own inner voices – and experience self-driven transformation through trust and reverence of the higher self.


Sonia grew up with the rare gift of being taught to trust her intuition and where the 6th sense was considered the 1st sense to pay attention to. Sonia’s mother was a Romanian refugee who lost her hearing but had her life saved by her own inner voice. Sonia started teaching about how to access your intuition by age 15 and shares in this interview tools, tips, and ways to learn how to listen to your intuition so that you can live your best life!


Your Intuition Is A Super Power

Take this in, my friend. Intuition literally means ‘inner teacher’. We are all born with intuition and an inner teacher. Learning to listen to your intuition and treat it like your own personalized inner compass will change your life (and for some, it can literally save your life as well). To develop your intuition, you have to get out of your head and accept that your heart is an intelligent organ. We’ve talked about this before in my interviews with Dr. Debbie Rozman and Dr. Rollin McCrady from HeartMath. Our heart is 5,000 stronger than our other senses. Connecting to your heart intelligence and deeper inner wisdom is now scientifically proven and means what you’ve been told — follow your heart. As Einstein said, the human spirit is the main gift, the mind is the servant. 


How To Tell If It’s Your Intuition

Sonia shared some easy ways to tell if it’s your intuition or your mind. For starters, intuition is a feeling, not a lot of words. You’ll notice that your intuition leaves your body and energy feeling more open, whereas if it’s your intellect, you’ll feel more constricted and contracted. Intuition will have a ‘ringing true’ quality and will resonate with your whole body. A great tool to really check and see is to speak it out loud and see if what you’re picking up lands true. If it does, you’ll feel it in your body and heart. 


Try This Game At Home

To align your ego and spirit, Sonia shared a fun game that will reframe the way you see both your ego and your unruly mind so that you can have a more harmonious relationship within yourself. Think of your ego as a friendly barking dog that is a friend to your Spirit (the part of you that knows who you really are). Give a name to the dog and to your Spirit — for example Sonia’s dog is Feefee and her Spirit is named Bright Light. Talk to both parts of you in a playful and fun way to reframe the way you view how you interact with your ego and Spirit. This can alleviate the seriousness and frustration that is often present when we start looking at parts of ourselves we want to shift and change. Try it and let me know what you’ve named your dog and Spirit in the You-est You Facebook community. 


My Favorite Takeaways:

  1. Trust your vibes! The missing piece for most of us is to fully trust our intuition.
  2. When your intuition leads and your ego follows, you will have a magical life.
  3. Intuition is the communication of your divine most authentic self (what we call your ‘You-est You’). When you listen to your intuition, your cells and body relax fully.
  4. Your body is a truth serum. (enough said) 
  5. Your intuition isn’t about finding the lost keys, it’s about finding the lost sense of yourself.


My hope and prayers are that this conversation reminds you that you are born with an intuition superpower that is here to guide you and that you don’t need anyone else to validate you, or your inner wisdom. You’re here not to just survive, but to grow, create, adapt, learn and enjoy your life. Keep focusing on trusting and attending to your intuition and watch how life becomes magical.


From my me-est me, may you always remember to “trust your vibe”, as Sonia says. I highly recommend any of her 30 books, including her newest book, “Trust Your Vibe”.
