intuition | ˌinto͞oˈiSHən, ˌintəˈwiSHən | noun
the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning
We are all intuitive. Yes, you may be shaking your head, however, you carry an intuition. It is your inner, most authentic voice.
Our intuition serves as a compass, a guide along our path. When we move from our mind to our heart and begin to listen, we open up to our intuition. We have the ability to strengthen our intuition. Through cultivating awareness and spending time in meditation, we learn to quiet our mind and drop into our heart.
Yes, it feels so elusive and intangible until you feel it. With practice, you find this deeper part of you that will always support you. When we feel disconnected or betrayed by our intuition, we must look at our state of awareness when we were tuning in. Was your mind adding commentary to your inner voice, bringing in doubt, old stories that stop you from deeply listening?
Drop the distractions, tune into your breath and listen.
You can find more information on connecting to your intuition. See the video below. Towards the end of the video, I have a little exercise you can do to play with your intuition. Have fun as you sharpen this tool of intuition.
Also below is a meditation to support you in connecting and activating your intuition. Below is my personal ask when I begin a meditation. Following are a few variations of questions you may wish to ask your inner voice. Then listen. I suggest having a journal near by to jot down any information, intuitive hits, that you receive. I highly encourage you to wait until you are finished meditating before you make notes - anything you are to remember, will come back to you. At this point, you will begin to add color to your intuitive messages by making interpretations based on your wisdom and the stories from around you. As you do so, stay in full awareness of what information is from your heart and what information is from your mind. This will help you as you make this intuition activation a practice. You will begin to learn the difference between heart speak and mind speak.
My personal opening to my meditations:
Divine spirit within and around me, please guide me to my highest good, to my most compassionate self so that I may be a light in this world. Support me in living in harmony, peace and love. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Choose a question to ask while in meditation. You may wish to add a specific scenario in which you are looking for guidance. Create your own opening or use mine. Find your questions that make sense to you, or use the following.
