5 Surefire Ways to Develop Your Intuition
As we further rely on rational intellect and technology, our intuitive mind lessens.
What results is more confusion and doubt in a world full of information.
“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant.” – Albert Einstein
While logic and reason can make sense, all it can do is point us in a direction but it does not really know.
By developing your intuition, you’ll just know with certainty. You’ll sense it. And you’ll feel it.
It is the highest form of spiritual wisdom we have as a gift.
What is Intuition?
Intuition is a sense, but different from the 5 physical senses.
It is the light within guiding you and encouraging you.
A spiritual sense which knows all and brings you the best possible paths if you listen to it.
Intuition is also a built-in protection mechanism to steer you away from possible dangers that are not in alignment with you.
If we wish to be in direct connection with knowing without knowing, we must develop our intuitive sense.
Thus, to increase your intuition is to exercise your intuition.
Here are 5 ways to develop your intuition.
The purpose of meditation is to lessen the thousand of thoughts in your mind.
By quieting the monkey chattering brain, you can hear the voice of your intuition.
This is especially useful if you have concerns and questions.
Sit in quiet meditation with the question in mind.
Then stay there until you receive an answer.
Because there is no such thing as time in meditation, the answer may come to you now or later.
Complement this with the act of “no-thinking”.
When it is time to think, then think.
But once you finished thinking, stop thinking and start doing.
Go with the flow and allow your intuition to take over.
2. Awareness of Energy
“Trust your hunches. They’re usually based on facts filed away just below the conscious level.” – Joyce Brothers
Feel the energy inside you as well as outside you.
Recognize how you feel inside on a daily basis.
How do you feel when you are at the park? And what do you feel inside with a particular person?
The more you practice in feeling energy, the greater your sensitivity to becoming more intuitive.
These are your hunches. They are information that tells you a great deal about the situation.
But in order to further develop them, you practice feeling the energy inside you.
So be aware of how you are feeling and stay present with that feeling for a moment.
Make sense with what you are feeling.
Your intuition will become sharper and more prepared.
3. Reading People
You can tell if someone is unhealthy, emotionally or mentally imbalance, or threatening in the future just by reading people.
Different from being judgmental, reading people is feeling the person and getting an understanding of his/her intentions.
Though you may not exactly know the reason why, you’ll know just enough to make a critical decision.
Is there something off about certain people? Is this person who he says he is?
If what the way the person act and feel is incongruent, then your intuition will let you know something is wrong.
Make it a habit to start reading people by feeling them.
Listen to any red alarms that goes off in your head.
4. Intellectual Games
Chess, checkers and pokers are all games that requires you to read your opponent’s intentions and bluffs.
You are not only looking at their body language, but sensing their overall energy.
It also exercises rational thinking in combination with intuitive sensing.
But it isn’t so much of the rational thinking part but more so in reading your opponent.
You can also do guessing card games where you sense the right cards.
5.Attune with Higher Self
Our intuition comes from the accumulated knowledge residing in our long-term memory.
While many refer to this as “unconscious mind”, it is more accurate to say it is from the soul/higher self’s memory.
By accumulated knowledge, I mean knowledge which has been added from your past lives (not ancestral DNA).
Thus, intuition is the knowledge of all your past lives put together inside the storage of your soul’s memory bank.
To be more intuitive is to really get closer to your true self/higher self/soul rather than the ego mind.
We look at the qualities of the Higher Self and attune with those qualities.
Qualities such as goodness, honesty, humility, beauty, truth, etc.
Attune with the light of intuition and intuition shall be granted unto you.
Practice with People, Objects, and Environment
Start with people. Then sense objects. And then the environment.
Be sure the mind is clear and there is no distraction.
You can read if someone is in imbalance or understand the emotional and mental state of the person.
As for objects, every object leaves an impression from the last person who touched it.
By reading an object, one can know the history of that object.
Lastly, every building has an atmosphere that keeps a history of accumulated emotional impression left from people who were there.
How much easier it is to recognize a haunted house by the uncomfortable vibe you get?
Intuition is a sensing faculty. The way to develop it is to use it often when it is needed.
