Imagine stepping into a new environment, whether it’s a new workplace or an unfamiliar place. Suddenly, you sense an unexplainable positive energy, drawing you towards a path you don’t quite know. That’s your intuition. An unexpected but authentic feeling about a person or situation. Despite going unnoticed at times, intuition is a powerful force that influences our daily lives.

Intuition has long been shrouded in mystery and interpreted in various ways. Some see it as a spiritual expansion, while others believe it’s a unique trait only certain people possess. 

But what exactly is intuition?

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift.

Intuition is a wondrous gift that can unlock insights beyond our conscious understanding. Even the brightest minds in science and poetry have been left puzzled by this enigmatic phenomenon. Yet, it exists, and it’s a superpower that resides within each and every one of us.

Take Paul McCartney, for example, who discovered the magic of intuition firsthand. In a dream, he heard a melody that would later become one of the Beatles’ most beloved songs, “Yesterday.” Despite his initial hesitation, McCartney followed his gut and embraced the tune. His intuition paid off in spades, as “Yesterday” went on to become a timeless classic, leaving the world spellbound with its haunting beauty.

Let’s now look at some ways in which you can be more intuitive and transform your life: 

Begin by being more Mindful and Self – Reflective: woman doing yoga at the beach

People with heightened intuition are mindful, stay in the present moment and block out distractions. They know that what matters most is right in front of them and use mindfulness to practice the pause, taking a moment to consider what is best for everyone before making decisions. Their insights often come to them during meditation, making them less impulsive and more thoughtful in their choices. Individuals who possess strong intuition take the time to self-reflect and often ponder upon their past in a constructive way. This is done to learn from it.

Replace “Thinking” with “Feeling”

Highly Intuitive individuals allow themselves to feel the emotions rather than thinking them out. Thinking emotions or even everyday situations leads to overthinking which generates anxiety and stress. When you allow yourself  to feel and reflect on your inner self and daily experiences, you begin being more in touch with your intuitive side. 

Expressing your emotions comes easily to you and you won’t feel ashamed to share feelings as you see them as human experiences and not something you need to run away from.  By asking yourself the question, “How am I feeling right now?” more frequently throughout the day, you will  gain a better understanding of your emotions and will be able to strengthen your intuitive feelings.

Take Frequent “Me Time” Breaks :

People with heightened intuition regularly take time to unplug and recharge by seeking solitude. They distance themselves from others’ opinions and listen to their inner voice, finding stillness in nature and moments of silence. This breathing room helps their intuition flourish, allowing them to better hear their inner voice and be more in tune with their instincts.

Take a digital detox once a while:

In today’s world, technology has become an integral part of our lives, with a myriad of screens constantly vying for our attention. It’s easy to get caught up in the constant stream of notifications, alerts, and messages, leaving little room for introspection or reflection. In fact, the sheer amount of digital noise can make it difficult to hear your own inner voice.

One way to address this issue is by embarking on a technology fast – a deliberate and purposeful detox from technology. By disconnecting from your device for a few hours, you can create a space that is free from distractions, allowing you to tune in to your thoughts and emotions more clearly. In doing so, you may become more attuned to your intuition, which can help guide you towards making better decisions in your personal and professional live.

During the same time, you can engage in activities such as journaling, yoga, meditation, a walk in nature, etc. By doing so, you may gain valuable insights and perspectives that will help you navigate the challenges and opportunities that come your way. 

Once you follow these steps you shall see the following coming true:

You shall make decisions based on your Gut feeling :

Gut feeling” or the “inner voice,” is a trait that highly intuitive people possess. This sense awakens sporadically without our control, but more often than not, we tend to ignore it. It is a superpower not many possess. This superpower aids successful businessmen and entrepreneurs to make decisions in an instant which leads them to success. Those who choose to listen to their gut feeling can make important decisions in their everyday lives, such as sealing a business deal, hiring the right employee, choosing the right partner, and much more. 

This inner sense is a valuable tool that we can all tap into if we learn to trust it. Intuitive people are confident and believe in themselves. They block all negativity and trust their instincts like a guiding light in the middle of uncertainty. They listen to their inner voice and let it guide them through difficult decisions, even when it seems illogical or goes against the opinions of others.

Trusting your intuition requires you to let go of your fear and doubt, to quiet the noise of the outside world, and to tune into your inner voice. It requires you to be open and receptive to the subtle messages that your intuition sends you, whether through a feeling, a sensation, or an idea. And it requires you to have the courage to act on these messages, even when they go against what others may be saying or doing.

Ultimately, by learning to trust your intuition, you can gain greater clarity and insight into your life. One can make decisions that are more aligned with their true selves and that lead them towards their goals and aspirations. So, the next time you are faced with a decision, take a moment to tune into your intuition and see what guidance it has to offer. You might just be surprised by the results.
