How do you know when you’re truly listening to your intuition? Have you noticed that sometimes your intuition is wrong? It’s not really wrong, it’s just we humans mistaking something else for our intuition.
I don’t count on my intuition to make my decisions for me, but if it decides to help me along, I don’t mind at all.
Primarily I see intuition as a suggestion tool. It hints and nudges you to look at new things by affecting your feelings and thoughts.
The clearer your mind is, the better you are able to receive intuitive guidance, inspiration and all those fancy things associated with spirituality.
I don’t really see them as something esoteric. They are just tools that help me live my life.
A lot of people are apprehensive just by the mere fact that it has something to do with spirituality.
The cool thing is that you don’t have to see it that way. I use these things because they produce results and they feel good. With that said, here are the four simple tips I promised you:
4 Tips on How to Enhance Your Intuition
1. Patience. I tend to rush things. I want everything to happen instantly, so being patient is something that I’ve had a lot of trouble with. If I can learn to be at least somewhat patient, I know you can. When we rush things, we tend to overlook a lot of factors, which naturally leads to our intuition being blocked out.
2. Listen. Intuitive guidance can come in many different forms. It can come to you as a T.V commercial or as a bird flying past that provokes a specific thought within you that feels significant. The possibilities are endless. As your mind starts to become more open and receptive, you will see more and more intuitive signals, but beware, because it is easy to create them yourself and mistake them for the real thing.
3. Find Your Signal. To add extra credibility to your intuitive messages, find you personal confirmation signal(s). I have two very basic signals that I have come to rely on. One is chills running down my spine and the other is simply feeling incredibly good and uplifted. For example, if I am looking for an apartment, I might be looking at pictures and suddenly get a chill down my spine accompanied by a river of good feelings. That tells me that I might want to look closer at that specific apartment.
4. Meditation. As you’ve probably noticed, our thoughts and feelings can easily distort the messages we get. This is where meditation comes in. Starting your day with 10-15 minutes of meditation clears your mind and sets the tone for the whole day. If you don’t know how to start, check out my article on how to meditate.
Observe and Write Down
We’re all unique, so it’s only natural that our intuition will be unique as well. You will receive different confirmation signals than I do and you may get your intuitive e-mail in another form. You never know until you start being present and listening to your body and being aware of your surroundings.
The biggest frustration I had in the beginning was thinking that something was my intuition talking to me when it wasn’t. This is natural and bound to happen. It happens to me all the time. What can you do? Shrug it off and smile :).
