We all have Intuition
Intuition is something that all of us have. Some people say it’s a mystical power. Others would say that it’s just our subconscious trying to tell us something. Regardless of where you believe your intuition is coming from, we all have that little voice that tries to tell us things from time to time. I bet you’ve heard it and didn’t even realise it was your intuition yet.
As we get older, we often learn to ignore that little voice. We turn to logic, and focus on being practical. Yawn!
We’ve experienced so much over the years, and there is some part of our brain that has gained a lot of wisdom. Listening to that little voice can be a good thing.
5 Ways to Develop Your Intuition
Try these techniques to develop your intuition:
1. Meditate for a few minutes each day.
One thing you need to know about intuition is that it has a soft voice most of the time. It can be hard to notice it if our minds are busy with other things. Meditation is a great way to clear the mind and make room for our intuition to come shining through.
• A simple technique to clear your mind is to simply count your breaths and attempt to stay focused on your breathing. Avoid letting your mind wander.
2. Record your dreams.
Our dreams can be full of useful information. Many psychologists believe that we work out our challenges in our sleep. It’s difficult for most of us to remember our dreams though.
Studies show that we average 5 dreams per night, and most of us are lucky to even remember one.
• After you get in bed, tell yourself that you want to remember your dreams in the morning. Keep thinking this to yourself until you fall asleep.
• Keep a notebook and pen near your bed. A voice recorder app on your phone can work well, too. As soon as you wake up, start writing. Dreams tend to fade from memory quickly.
• Review your dreams and see if there might be any information you can use in your life.
3. Follow your intuition.
The surest way to shut down your intuition is to never follow it. Start using it in situations that don’t matter too much. It could be as simple as taking a walk and asking yourself which way you should turn at each intersection or fork in the road.
• Show your intuition that you’re listening and responding. You’ll be more likely to hear from it in the future.
4. Busy your mind.
Many people believe that their best ideas come while their mind is busy, but not too busy. For examples, walking, driving down the road, taking a shower, and listening to the rain. Think about the times you’ve had great ideas. Try to put yourself in similar situations more often.
5. Keep a journal.
Take a few minutes each day to write in a journal. Sometimes, putting things down on paper opens a floodgate of ideas and inspiration. Study what you’ve written. You’re likely to get insights you haven’t considered until you do this.
• Keep your journals in a safe place, so you’ll feel more comfortable with being honest and thorough.
Intuition is a tether to the subconscious
Being in touch with your intuition can help you identify and solve the challenges in your life that are causing stress. It also releases your imagination and creativity. Your intuition is a great resource, but it’s important to nurture it. Start with smaller things. When your intuition has proven it’s reliable, use it to make bigger decisions.
Intuition is a tether to the subconscious. It’s your ultimate source of wisdom and creative energy. Make life easier and richer by utilizing all of your resources.
