Do you want to be more Intuitive?
Do you want to be more Intuitive? Unless you are already mega-intuitive the answer is probably “yes.” And that is the reason for this article. There is a very simple, inexpensive practice that almost anyone can do, right where they are, that can help them become more intuitive.
Let me explain first that that does not mean your intuition will work better, harder or faster. It is working perfectly well already and has been doing so all your life. What this article will help you do is to tune into your intuition, to listen to it and to learn to recognize its voice.
And you may indeed actually “hear” your intuition as a voice, probably your own, inside your head or you may get hunches, or some other physical feeling that tells you what your intuition is saying. Some people dream and others never know how or where it came from but they just know where to go, what to do in a sudden inspiration.
All of these, and probably many more, are ways you intuition speaks to you. But if you, because of background, because of the type of work you do, because you just don’t believe in all that “hocus-pocus” stuff – or because you just haven’t been able to figure out what is your intuition and what is now – if you have not been used to hearing and recognizing your intuition, here is a way that can help.
Journal. Start an intuition journal.
Journaling in any form is amazingly healthy. It can help so many problems just disappear or at least help us deal with them. It can be a wonderful place to celebrate happiness, gratitude, to create family and other memories. And it is the perfect place to learn to hear your intuition. Your intuition is your invisible guide to life. It is never wrong, so it is worth taking some time to get to know it intimately.
I believe strongly in targeted journaling, where you focus on just one topic and journal about that. The focus helps you keep out unrelated events, feelings, concerns, and instead keep looking at and concentrating on the subject of your choice.
And as a targeted journal you do not need to feel obligated to write every day. You write when something related to your topic comes up, or when you are thinking about that and have something to write.
There is no daily grind to sit down and write every single day even when you do not feel like it. In a targeted journal when the relevant topic appears in your thoughts or life, you feel excitement and want to journal, because you are building up a story, an understanding, on this one subject which you already know will help you.
Initially your intuition journal has two things that will go into it.
Any time you think you intuition is telling you something, write it down. One of the lovely things about a journal is that is never judges you, so you can write down anything and no-one is going to think you were silly or stupid to write it or to think it.
So whenever you feel something could well be your intuition (or could not be, but you are not sure) write it down. Write down exactly what you are feeling or hearing that makes you think it might be intuition. This is important since you are learning to identify what is and what is not your sixth sense guiding you.
Then later, you can come back and add whether this proved to be your intuition indeed, in light of later developments, or whether it was not, or perhaps you may just have to put that you are still not sure about this one. However, you will come to recognize, over time, what is and what is not your intuition.
The benefit of this is obvious.
Now you when to listen to that quiet voice, and know how to recognize it. You recognize it as a trusted friend.
If you already are tuned into your intuition, or once you come to that stage through journaling, an Intuition journal can still be an extremely valuable ally.
Even those of us who use our intuition as a regular guidance system in our lives, are prone to allow our imagination or subsequent events to alter or cloud that original insight. We look back and think it can’t have been quite as we saw or felt it, it must have been… and we edit and reshape to fit present circumstances.
Your intuition journal can help prevent that. If you write down your original intuitive thought at the time, exactly as it came to you, including how it came to you, it will be there, unedited, unchanged when you come back later, with your doubts, to recall exactly what the original message was.
Since we are assuming that you are someone who by now trusts their intuition easily, re-reading your earlier entries can get you back on track and going in the right directions.
Once you really trust your intuition implicitly, you will follow it when it seems like a crazy way to go. You will follow it regardless of what those around you say or do. You will follow it because it has proved to you that it is always right, it always knows what is best for you.
And when you have doubts, when the pressure around you gets great enough that you being to wonder … you will have your intuition journal to keep you on the right path and to give you the confidence you need to keep going.
And once that situation is over, and journaled in your Intuition journal, you will now have that to look back on too, which will give you even more confidence in how well it works.
