Ways to Tap into your Intuition

Ways to tap into your intuition

Below are ways you can feed your intuition so it flourishes and be ready to advise:

  • Listen

This sounds easy, and it sure is.  Your intuition is unable to communicate to you if you are not paying attention. When you begin to notice, good things start happening. Try it and see.

  • Trust your instincts (gut feeling)

There has to be a reason why a word like ‘gut’ teams up with a word like ‘feeling’. Study indicates that

Both emotion and intuition have a physical presence in our gut. The gut is also referred to as the second brain since it is lined with a network of neurons. That’s why we get sick after knowing that we’ve made a bad decision or when we are about to make a tough decision.

  • Feel

The only way you can know the existence of your intuition is by feeling it. You can feel it in your belly and it is likely to goosebump your skin. At times it’s a bit subtle such that you can only describe it as knowing. When something is not right, you’ll feel it clearly, enriching, and nourishing. If you are not used to your intuition, it might be hard trusting it at first. However, give it time and trust step by step. It will be worth it.

  • Let negative feelings go away

Negative feelings always overpower intuition. This is why you can easily make bad decisions when angry or depressed. Study indicates that individuals make positive decisions when they are in a good mood and negative decisions when in a bad mood.

  • Be cautious about the individuals you hang on to

People who take all your energy will make it hard for you to hear your intuition since they will be contributing to the noise which you are trying to avoid. You might know how they are, if you don’t, wait a minute, and your intuition will be able to tell you. Be around people who empower and enrich you and walk away from those who drain you. It’s hard to walk away from troublesome people, but you decide to stay and empower yourself.

  • Focus on what’s going on around you

Your intuitive, subconscious part of your brain has to work with, and the more accurately it will choose with the information you will gather from the surroundings.

  • Find some time and be still and silent

Being in solitude allows you to tune into your intuition without any problem. Our intuition always sends us warnings and encouragement but we are frequently too busy to notice. Be open-minded to what comes to you be it feelings, words or thoughts.

  • Make use of your dream time

It is through dreams that the brain processes information that was left during the day. They have valuable data and experiences; therefore, they can work hard if we let them. We can get information that we are unable to get when we are awake and when we pay attention to dreams. Before sleeping, think about any unresolved issues or problems. Think about possible solutions as you fall asleep. Close your eyes and let your brain do the rest.
