How to develop your intuition
Are you intuitive? Would you like to be even more intuitive, or develop a stronger sixth sense?
Our intuition is often a quiet whisper, a gentle nudge, or a muted message. But with some practice, you can learn to tune in to your intuition and hear those messages a little more clearly.
Here are a few ways to develop your intuition:
1. Meditate often
To tune in to our inner compass, we have to tune out the noisy world. And meditation provides the perfect platform for sitting in silence and stillness and listening to what bubbles up from within.
2. Become more observant
Begin a new habit of noticing the world around you. Take a walk in nature and zone in on all the surrounding sounds. Touch the trees and earth. Smell the flowers. Taste the naturally flowing water. See everything in as much detail as you can. Wherever you go, practise using each sense to tune in and explore your sensitivities.
Imagery can be incredibly powerful when developing intuition. Creating pictures in our mind helps us connect with our intuition and find answers to our questions. With your eyes closed, take a visualisation journey (there are many online apps and tools that can guide you in a practice) and open yourself up to hearing messages from within.
4. Record your dreams
As soon as you wake in the morning, write down your dreams in a journal or notebook. Try to be as detailed as possible, as your dreams can reveal a lot about your subconscious mind and its innermost thoughts, feelings, ideas, and insights.
5. Test your intuition
It’s fun to test your intuition. And an easy way to do this is by playing a few simple games. For instance, if you get a bad ‘vibe’ about a person, write it down and come back to it later to see if it came true. You could try focusing on someone in your life to see if they call you at the same time. Or you could say to yourself, ‘the next car to come around the corner will be red (or blue or black or whatever). Intuition is like a muscle – the more you use it and stretch it, the stronger it becomes.
