How to Listen to your Intuition

Intuition- what is it? Intuition is the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning.

So who has it? Detectives? Psychics? You? Me?

Yes! All of the above.

Think of intuition as your inner guidance system. This is the instinctual answers and gut feelings that you just know are true, but may not want to believe.

So how do you listen to your intuition? You sit down, calm down, and listen. In other words, you meditate. You listen to what thoughts are going through your head without focusing on them. You acknowledge that they have been there, but you let them go for the next one.

The ones that are your intuition are going to be the ones that you feel strongly about. The ones that make your insides twist, in excitement or worry. This is more than your normal stress.

Meditation to listen to your intuition

Find a comfortable place on the floor or in a chair. Sit comfortably, but keep your spine straight as if someone is pulling up on a string from the top of your head.

Focus on your breath for 10 slow, calm breaths. Let the stress of the day fall to the floor and float away. You can either close and relax your eyes, or you can look up at your third eye chakra. The preference is yours, but try both ways and see which one works best for you.

Now just relax and let your thoughts flow by. Don’t grab any and hold on, just let them float by. If you have something that you are trying to find an answer to, think of one word and notice the feelings in your body. Do muscles tense? Do you feel sick or dizzy? Does your heart rate increase? This is your gut feeling. Now just focus on this one word and see what feelings come to mind. What thoughts go by.

This is your intuition.

The more your tune into your intuition, the easier this will become and you may not need to do a full meditation.

Once you feel you have gotten the answer you seek, or that you may need to try again. Slowly start moving your fingers and your toes and then work your way up to standing. Give your body a good stretch and then reflect on how the mediation went. What feelings it arose, what questions now feel like they have answers.
