Hey, listen, it’s a natural fact that some people are more savvy than others. Your perception of everyday things and situations might not be as on point as, say, a fictional James Bond, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t have the potential to unlock a lot more of the intuition you have inside but might not be using. Mastering your own institution is like mastering any other kind of skill; the more you work on it, the better it will get. Here are ten ways to help you tune in to your intuition!
Get to know what is called your ‘shadow’, which is the unconscious part of you that pretty much governs up to 90% of your emotions and behaviour. The more you can be in tune with your shadow, the more you will be able to be in tune with your subconscious.
Try to come to terms with your various emotional triggers, because when you are aware of what can change your mood in an instant, you are likely to be more in control of your attitude and personality.
Try to practise being centred. This means accepting yourself for exactly who you are, and not trying to be someone else to fit it with another crowd.
You should also try to practise being grounded, making the effort to be more connected to the Earth. Be humble.
Listen not to just to others but also to yourself. Don’t try to block out that little voice in your head that is trying to tell you something, because that little voice is basically your intuition trying to get involved with your decision making.
6. Self Doubt
Try to rid your life of self doubt. The best way to do this is to work on your confidence. The more confident you are in a situation, the more happy you will be to trust your own intuition rather than follow someone else.
Practice being still. It helps you to get in touch with your inner self rather than just going through your day reacting to others. Some might want to call it meditation, but you don’t have to use such a grand term if it makes you uncomfortable.
Be active in actually inviting your intuition to come through for you. This can be done by just taking a few seconds to look within yourself and ask yourself if the direction your situation is going is what your truly want deep down inside.
Keep a journal of your experiences with all of these various tips. It will help you to stay grounded and will also help you to see how far you might have come without realising.
10. Live Your Truth
Your intuition will never be able to flourish if you live a life that isn’t authentic to your personality and your desires. Live how your heart wants you to live, because your heart and your intuition are very closely linked!
