Intuition is a Gift

journal your intuition Intuition is a Gift.

Intuition may be a gift, but to some people it seems like a gift they do not have.

But they do.

Everyone has intuition, intuitive insights and impulses. The difference is that some people do not realize they have it. They simply do not recognize it, or else they do feel it but ignore it as not being “realistic” or “rational.”

And yet, your intuition, given half the chance, can guide you through life like nothing else can. It is always correct, and yet it really doesn’t care what is “politically correct.”

Your intuition guides you to do what is best for you at this time. It is your job to work out how to make that happen in a way that is, not necessarily comfortable (because your intuition may often lead you into uncomfortable situations as a route to your best outcome) but acceptable to you.

But if you have never felt your intuition speaking to you, or at least have never knowing had your intuition speak to you, where do you start?

Here are some suggestions:

  • Whenever an idea of what to do, or how to do something occurs to you, write it down. Do not try to make sense of it, or to add your own calculations of how to make this work. Just write it down as it came to you. Date it.
  • When you have more than one choice as to how to proceed in something, write down all the options. Mark the option that seems to feel that is wants to happen the most, even if it seems totally “out there” or wrong to you. Date it.
  • When you do something, but you have a nagging feeling you should have done something else. Write it down and date it.

Not only write what it was, but write how it felt. Was it just an uncomfortable feeling? Did your inner voice speak to you? Did you have a sudden flash of an idea? What happened to make you aware of the plan, the idea that you wrote down?

You get the picture? Any feelings, ideas, inklings, nagging doubts – write them all down, with the date. How they came to you will help you identify intuition in the future.

Keep looking back at your Intuition Journal ever so often and check what is going on with the things you wrote down.

To begin with perhaps only one in a while will jump out and hit you because what you thought was a crazy idea worked out as the best one – or it now appears it would have worked out as the best one if only you had followed it.

Intuition, of course, will not always appear in your life in the same way. One time you may just be “hit” with a wonderful (although scary or perhaps crazy seeming) idea and another time you may just have a quiet confidence that this is the way to go.

However, if you keep a record, and check back so you get to know what was indeed your intuition and what was not, you will gradually get more comfortable with hearing its voice and recognizing its tone.

If you would like an actual “test” to help you, read about it here

Learn to trust your intuition and tap into that all knowing inner guide that wants to lead you and guide you for your own good.

To your increased “inuiting”

Attract What You Want

Journaling Can Help You Achieve What You Want Easily and Successfully

Quotations for Journaling

Grandmothers Are Special

 

Do you find it difficult to believe in the Law of Attraction?

Do you find it difficult to believe in the Law of Attraction?

Do you, perhaps, believe The Law of Attraction works but are having trouble manifesting it in your own life?

If your answer to either of these questions was “yes” I have a solution to suggest to you.

Yes, it is a simple as that. Journal.

But do not just do a regular journal where you write out whatever comes to mind, about your day, your challenges, your successes. These are all very valid topics, as is almost anything else, for general journaling, but to work specifically on the Law of Attraction, I invite you to consider a focused or targeted journal.

This is a journal that zeroes in, or focuses on a specific topic, in this case, the Law of Attraction.

You write down what you want to attract, or manifest in your life.

You write it down always in the positive. So if you want to have no debt, you do not write that you want to have no debt. Instead you write about how you want to be financially stable or secure, with cash in the bank, and everything paid off. In fact the more specific you are, the better it works, so perhaps you could put exactly how much cash you would like to have in the bank.

As you write, be visualizing what it is you are asking for.  That should be easy enough since you have to be thinking of it to write about it, so visualizing is just taking it all a little slower so you have time to “see” it as well.

Do this for everything you want to use the Law of Attraction to bring to you.

Keep doing it.

Do not just write the same words each time but try to take a fresh approach to it. Think about how life will be when you have what you are asking for. Think about how it will feel and look. Write about how you appreciate the “side effects” of what you are asking for, as well as the “main event.”

Each time you see even a little of it arriving, journal it with gratitude and appreciation.

Journaling in this way has many advantages.

The thing about manifesting is that sometimes what you are asking for comes to you in a way you did not expect, so at first you just do not notice it. Or it comes in such a natural way, that although you enjoy and appreciate it immediately, you do not fully realize that this is the answer to your request until later.

When you have journal as you go, you can go back, re read and get a clearer perspective on what you have asked for, how you asked for it, and how it is appearing in your life.

Sometimes, you may re-read and decide that, no, this is not what you want after all, and may decide to “tweak” your request or change it altogether. Of course, this can delay receiving anything, but if your original request no longer fits your needs or wishes, then changing it is the wisest thing to do.

Journaling keeps track.

Our minds are funny things. We think we remember SO clearly, but if we have been journaling, we can go back and may often find out that what we remember is not what actually was. Our memories have twisted it or changed it in some way.

Journaling to ask, to express our feelings, our gratitude – sometimes even our pain – keeps an exactly record of where we are at any given point. And it also shows us beyond argument when our wishes are fulfilled.

By seeing, in a journal, when we receive an answer to a request, we then begin to believe me. And the more we believe, the more we receive.

Your Law of Attraction Journal can be the key to learning to trust that we can manifest our wildest dreams, and it increases our gratitude when we see just how often and how much we are already receiving.

So journal.  Keep a Law of Attraction Journal and watch your world change.

To your success, your happiness and your focused “Attraction,”

Ideas are priceless and fleeting: keep them safe.

Ideas are priceless and fleeting: keep them safe.

Ideas are priceless and fleeting: keep them safe, keep them from drifting off and evaporating.

Have you ever had a great idea, perhaps in the middle of the night, perhaps at any other time? Have you ever then forgotten what it was?

If you have ever had an idea at all, then the above scenario is probably true for you. There is no cure, but an Ideas Journal is excellent prevention.

Your Ideas Journal is a place to write down any ideas that come to you at any time, whether they seem immediately relevant or if they are ideas for some time in the future. Maybe at 2 am you will not have your ideas journal handy, but please do have a pad and pen beside the bed to jot down ideas as they come.

I keep paper and pen beside my bed and when inspiration strikes in the middle of the night, I scribble down on the pad what it is. In the dark, just making sure I leave plenty space between lines of writing then I can be sure of being able to read it in the morning.

Then I turn the page on my pad or paper, so that is I have another brilliant idea before dawn, I have a fresh sheet of paper willing to receive it. Of course, if you have a bedroom to yourself, you can turn on the light and do it the easy way!

If I am out and about, I have electronic sticky notes on my phone on which to jot down ideas.

One way or another, ideas need to be captured in writing at the time they first come to you. They have a very limited timespan and once they are gone they are usually impossible to find again.

Whenever I have ideas noted down in different places, I always add them as soon as I reasonably can, to my Ideas Journal. I have kept one for years.

To my mind, an Ideas Journal puts me under no pressure to actually do whatever the idea was. It is an idea. It is something to consider, perhaps to think over and develop farther, perhaps to decide that, yes, it’s a great idea but I can’t see me ever actually doing it. But it stays in my Ideas Journal anyway. How do I know what I’ll think is feasible in another few months or even years?

In fact, as I am writing this, I have just come up with another idea which I have just taken the time to note down in my Ideas Journal. I don’t know when I will do it, but it’s a pretty hot idea, and too good to forget.

If you, like me “suffer” from a zillion ideas, an Ideas Journal is imperative because how on earth could we remember so many? And we can’t tell at this point which will be the winners and which we will ultimately decide not to follow through on.

If your ideas come at a more decorous pace and don’t inundate you all day, then an Ideas Journal is equally necessary so you don’t lose one single one. Each idea of yours has a much higher percent chance (since there are less altogether) of being the best you’ll ever have. Don’t lose it.

One way or another, ideas are a priceless gift to each of us, and we owe it to ourselves, and maybe to others who would ultimately benefit, not to lose any of them.

I was looking through an old Ideas Journal recently and came across an idea I came up with several years ago and never did anything with. I had totally forgotten about it. But what a great idea it is! I am currently making plans as to how to use it. If it had not been in my journal, it would have been gone forever.

An Ideas Journal is not something you can make yourself sit down and write in once a day at a set time, as some people recommend for general journaling.

Ideas are inspiration, so you write in your Ideas Journal when inspiration strikes, and if inspiration strikes (as it does) at inconvenient moments, then jot it down somewhere temporarily and add it to your Ideas Journal as soon as possible, while you are still able to recapture the moment.

As you journal your ideas, expand on them. 

You are in the flow at that moment which you may or may not be when you read it later. So let the idea just explain itself, how it looks, feels, where it might lead, how you see it developing, what options you can see. Just let it take on a life of its own and record it all.

Later you may see terrific value in some of that expansiveness, or you may not, but you never know ahead of time which are diamonds and which are just pebbles, so write it all down.

Regardless of your lifestyle or your life situation, the chances are you have ideas.

They come to you for a reason. You may not know right now what that reason is, and you may not right now see any benefit in the idea. But write it down anyway.

You wouldn’t throw away a priceless gem that came your way just because you didn’t have a jewelry setting ready and waiting to receive it, would you? So don’t throw away your ideas either. There are priceless gems among them and time will tell which are which – but only if you still have them to evaluate.

Journal your Ideas. Now there’s an IDEA!

Do you want to be more Intuitive?

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.

Intuition and Journaling. They are natural partners and a very powerful duo. Start your intuition journal today.

Intuition is powerful: make the most of your power.
