Learning to use and trust our intuition can be difficult but with practice and a few tips you can bring yourself to the point where you can easily and effectively use your intuition in your everyday life. So, here are some tips on following your intuition.
Everyone has intuition and we use it involuntarily every single day. It’s a very special part of being in the animal kingdom. A sixth sense is needed to help us survive even in this day and age with technology, comforts and safeguards that our ancestors would’ve never had the luxury of.
How we live now has meant that our cave-man-like instincts and intuition are dulled or harder to access, but with practice and perseverance, you can get it working wonderfully.
Intuition is defined as ‘the ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning.’ And this sentence in itself explains how to access your intuition.
Intuition and psychic ability are very closely linked and are often used in unison when doing readings. You can think of intuition as a gut instinct or warning signal of something that is or will be very soon and psychic ability as the foresight of what will be or what is hidden from our intuition. Quite often intuition will tell the first part of the story and psychic ability takes over to tell the rest. For this reason, intuition is very important when it comes to psychic development.
Both intuition and psychic ability don’t require conscious reasoning. In fact, conscious reasoning tends to block both of these abilities. For this reason, intuition is most easily accessed by being aware of your first thought on something or the first gut feeling that you have. For a real-world example, if you were to buy tickets to a concert and had a first fleeting thought that the concert would be cancelled then this would be your intuition giving you a warning. The psychic ability would tell you why the concert will be cancelled and how easy it will be to have your ticket reimbursed.
Another method of accessing your intuition is to be aware of gut instinct. If you have body reactions to someone or something, then this is your intuition giving you a warning about something. It could come in the form of a sudden upset stomach, a frog in your throat, breathlessness, an aching joint or a general feeling of being unwell. If there is no medical reason for a bodily reaction, then you can be sure that it is intuition.
Trying to reason or apply logic to intuition tends to confuse what your intuition is trying to tell you. The same goes for if you doubt your intuition or put it down to being a worrywart or having a negative outlook. To overcome these problems, you need to practice and remain aware of intuitive thoughts and the results of your first thought. As time goes on it will become easier to decipher what your intuition is trying to tell you.
So now it’s time to go practice. Fine-tuning our intuition brings a whole host of benefits and will enhance your life in such ways that you never thought possible!
