You may be surprised at how easily you can access your intuition.
One of my friends called me the other day to tell me she’d had an interesting experience using her intuition after her mum lost her wedding ring. She said, “It was so strange. I just closed my eyes and pictured the ring in my mind’s eye, and then I opened my eyes and walked right to the place she’d dropped the ring behind a little table. My mum was flabbergasted.” I was very pleased for my friend, and glad to hear that she could trust her intuition and take action on it!
We all have access to our intuition and the mysterious knowledge it gives us, even though we may not exactly understand it. For some, intuition comes through a tiny inner voice, for others it may be a sudden thought popping into our head, or a physical sensation. We’ve all had a gut feeling or hunch about something at some point, and we all can probably remember what happened if we ignored what our intuition was trying to tell us. I’m a big believer in the value of intuition, and I believe we all have the power to develop our intuition to make our lives better.
You may be surprised at how easily you can access your intuition. You don’t have to go for training or practice for hours at a time. Building intuition for the most part involves paying attention to signals from your body and mind. You can even practice by playing guessing games with yourself, like trying to guess which elevator will come first before you push the button or guessing who is calling on the phone before you look at the readout. It’s not important that you aren’t always right. What’s important is that you free your mind to allow it to make those wild guesses and then you train your mind to pay attention.
Meditation can go a long way towards developing your intuition, as well. And you don’t have to spend hours on the floor in the lotus position listening to soft music, unless you want to, of course. Just a few minutes of quiet daily introspection will help to free your mind to receive information. Journaling, doodling, brainstorming, and memory games also help open you to your own intuitive messages. I have one friend who “anchors” her awareness of intuitive thoughts by pressing her index finger to her knee every time she feels her intuition is speaking. She says that now, if she really needs to access her intuition, all she has to do is press her index finger to her knee. I think this technique is quite clever.
No matter how you choose to go about building your intuitive abilities, let yourself try this exercise. I think you’ll be pleased with the results when you find yourself following your intuition and enjoying a better life.
