“You will never follow your own inner voice until you clear up the doubts in your mind.”
― Roy T. Bennett
From my own first hand experience with intuition it is from being a young sensitive, open, insightful, firmly trusting and vulnerable youth going through changes, but more so in touch with my thoughts, feelings and heart from the day I was born till now in everything I do be it thinking, feeling, seeing and hearing, I have intuitive thought’s, forecast’s, reaction’s and deep vibes about all the buzzing going on around me the things people do and say and how they act to that slight breeze brushing my face, visuals in my mind, nature speaking to me and dreaming, dreams impossible to explain, hidden messages all around me, these beautiful soulful notions and emotions seem to effect my thoughts like a whirling beautiful ocean wave, I have been investing my time into the intuitive side of myself and accepting learning and growing my ability’s and not denying my intuition forcing it down because I’m afraid to express myself around others if anything these days people are more open to spirituality and intuitiveness it wonderful!
Have you ever been thinking of someone and out of the blue they show up at your door or they call you and its that exact same person. Have you ever felt like someone is watching you and then you turn around to see someone off in the distance staring at you?
These are two very common signs of your intuition at work and just like memory, critical thinking and intellect your intuition is your mental muscle you can strengthen and use to be come the best version of yourself.
To be able to use intuition you need to be able to recognize it when it speaks to you, sometimes intuitive thoughts are simply a deep sense of knowing and certainty. If you’ve ever felt that you knew something to be true in the depths of your heart or soul, chances are it was a message from your intuition.
When we have a big question or an important decision to make, many of us look outside of ourselves to google search, family, friends, books but yet we forget to consult the most important authority of all: our own intuition .
Here are some of my favorite ways to stay in touch with my intuition are quite simple, effective and easy to fit into daily routines with my kids and my busy lifestyle
Journal your thoughts
This is something I do a lot of is write my thoughts down anything as long as you get that thought down on paper it becomes official its a great way to release tension and built up feelings and its a great tool get to know your intuitive thoughts. Write out whatever you are feeling or thinking about without worrying about rationalization or your judgmental inner voice. Stream of consciousness writing, or just jotting down the first word or thought that pops into your head, can help you become more aware of what’s going on in your subconscious mind
Meditation can help you become more in tune with the intuitive signals your body is sending you. Try some basic meditation techniques to help you become more mindful of your physical state
Find a quiet and comfortable place to meditate where you will not be bothered or distracted.Sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes, and focus on the sensations of your own breathing. If your mind wanders, gently redirect your attention to your breathing. Try doing a “body scan.” Lie down, close your eyes, and mentally focus on each part of your body in turn, starting with the toes and moving up to the top of your head. Be aware of any sensations you are experiencing in each part of your body, and make a conscious effort to relax any tensed muscles. When you are done, focus on your entire body for a few minutes. Take a few minutes to focus on your breathing.
