You are walking or driving home when you have an unexplainable urge to take another route. When you arrive at your destination, you find out that if you had not listened to your internal guidance, you would have been involved in an accident. Perhaps you’ve gone one a job interview, and you didn’t get a warm, fuzzy feeling from the potential employer. These are examples of our intuition at work.
So how can you tap into this guidance on a consistent basis? There are several ways to do this. The good news is that we’re all intuitive. The bad news, not so bad unless you have a tendency towards procrastination like me, is that it takes practice and patience to learn to tap into this guidance on a daily basis.
First, we need to quiet our busy minds so that we can receive the subtle messages from our intuition. We can do this through meditation, exercise, or anything that places you in a relaxed state of mind.
Another great way to tap into your intuition is through your dreams. While some dreams contain random images from our subconscious minds, our intuition can speak through dreams. Many people fear that they cannot remember their dreams, but a dream that contains intuitive guidance will stay with you until you’ve received and acted upon the guidance.
A fun way to tap into your intuition is through the use of a tool such as a pendulum or a deck of oracle cards. After working with these tools for a while, you may find that intuitive guidance just comes to you, and that’s exciting!
We can also receive intuitive information through our bodies. For example, your stomach may clench whenever you are with a certain person or in a specific place. This is a great way to weigh the pros and cons of a decision. Let’s say you are trying to decide between two jobs. Take a deep breath, quiet your mind, and ask yourself how the first option feels in your body. Tune into the question until you feel a sensation in your body. Then, do the same thing with the second option.
Although intuitive development exercises are helpful, they cannot replace trusting your intuition. Think about the last time that you trusted your intuition and you benefitted from it. Hold onto that feeling, and it will become easier with practice.
Lastly, have compassion for yourself. I’m a psychic medium, and sometimes I still question what I receive sometimes!
