How do you know when you’re listening to your intuition?
Have you noticed that sometimes your intuition is wrong?
Your intuition is not meant to guarantee that everything goes your way, that’s simply the mind trying to always feel good.
Instead of putting the burden of perfection on your intuition, see it as another source of data, a suggestion.
Now, this doesn’t mean you can’t improve the connection with your intuition.
The clearer your mind, the better the connection seems to be.
4 Tips on How to Enhance Your Intuition
1. Familiarity. Learn how your intuition communicates with you. Is it a feeling of openness, peace, expansion, or something else? Begin to play with how it feels to follow what feels true for you. Start with small things, such as where to go for a walk, or what to eat for lunch, and then gradually dial up the courage from there.
2. Fear. What will almost immediately happen is that you will come in contact with fear. Thoughts want to control, judge, dissect, and ensure safety. The more you take a tiny step forward anyway, the more thoughts will calm down. Thoughts have no power. They tell you they do, but they don’t. Defy them. Experiment. Laugh.
3. Expectations. As I mentioned above, temper your expectations. This is not about perfection. This is simply about learning to listen to what resonates. You may follow your intuition and discover that you made a wrong choice, but be careful, because you don’t know how things will play out as time passes. Just do the best you can with what you have.
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.
Have fun with this.
Create mini experiments and see what happens when you bring in your intuition as a consultant.
Try making a decision just with your intuition and see what happens.
You will make mistakes. It’s all a part of the experiment.
Just smile and keep going.
