Intuition is a tool that all of us have. Some people suggest that it’s a mystical power. Others would suggest that it’s merely our subconscious trying to tell us something. Regardless of the source, we all have that little voice that tries to tell us things from time to time.
As we get older, we often learn to ignore that little voice. We turn to logic and focus on being practical. But we’ve experienced a lot over the years, and there is some part of our brain that has accumulated a tremendous amount of wisdom. Listening to that little voice can be a good thing.
5 Easy Actions To Develop Your Intuition
1. Busy your mind. Many people find that their best ideas come while their mind is busy, but not too busy.
Some examples commonly cited include, walking, driving down the highway, mowing the grass, 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 frequently.
2. 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 find insights you haven’t considered.
Keep your journals in a safe place, so you’ll feel more comfortable with being honest and thorough.
3. Follow your intuition. The surest way to shut down your intuition is to never follow it. Start using it in situations that have minor importance.
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.
4. Show your intuition that you’re listening and responding by taking inspired action. You’ll be more likely to hear from it in the future.
5. Pay attention to your body. Often, our body tells us what feels good and right and what doesn’t. Ask yourself how this decision feels within. Go with your gut!
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.
