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.
