Have you ever experienced a gut feeling about something? This is your intuition kicking in trying to guide you onto the right path. Some people define intuition as knowing without knowing, and to some, intuition is more powerful than intellect. It is always with us, whether or not we are aware of that fact. Most people tune out their intuition, but to lead a full life, a person needs to feed and nurture his/her intuition. There have been studies done that suggest that intuition is how humans interact with our environment and how we make many of our decisions.
How can you tap into your intuition? Listen to your inner voice and pay attention to what it is guiding you to. To make the best decisions, balance your intuition with rational thinking. By seeking a balance between the two, you can use all your brain’s resources.
Intuitive people take time to reflect because a little solitude can help connect you to your deepest inner wisdom. Take time to reconnect with yourself in order to engage in deeper thought.
Creative people are more in touch with their intuition. By increasing your creativity, you can also boost your intuition.
Be mindful and try to meditate. Mindfulness can help to tame the brain, which in turns makes it easier to tap into your intuition. With mindfulness, you can boost your self-knowledge which in turns gives us a better understanding of our inner workings.
Observe the world around you. Keep a journal and write down little things that occur. This will help you gain a sense of how often coincidences and surprising connections occur, thereby allowing you to tap into your intuition.
Listen to your body and your gut feelings. Intuitions can manifest physically so if you are feeling sick to your stomach when something was wrong but cannot express why, it is most likely your intuition.
Intuitive people connect deeply with others. When you connect deeply with someone, you can tap into their being from their words, emotions and body language. This is partly from your power of empathy but it also stems from your intuition.
Pay attention to your dreams. Dreams are similar to intuition, in the fact, that they both stem from the unconscious. During your dreams, you are getting information about how to live your life from your intuitive part of your brain
Take time to relax because when you are constantly on the move, connected to your devices and are stress, you can repress your intuition. Sometimes, your intuition is telling you something but you are too busy to listen to it.
Negativity can adversity effect our intuition. When you are angry or depressed, your intuition may fail you. When you are in a positive mood, you will boost your intuition. It is ok to get angry or to have negative emotions but mindfully accept these emotions and let them go in order to let your intuition to thrive.
I believe newborns, toddlers and pre schoolers are the most intuitive. Unfortunately, as we grow are taught to only believe what we see and not so much what we feel. That inner voice gets pushed to the background more and more. It's time to bring back your inner voice.
