Feel, See and Hear Your Intuition
Your intuition is as much a part of your physical and energy body as your other 5 senses.
Intuition is subtle, and if you are not used to relying on it in your everyday life, it can take some getting used to.
Develop your intuitive skills and your intuition can help you make excellent choices, can protect you from danger, and can guide you in living a happy and fulfilled life.
Here are 5 more ways in which you can develop your intuition - 5 ways to feel, see, and hear it in your everyday life:
1. Know how your body feels when your intuition comes through
Intuition works with the circuitry and energetic pathways of the body. Many people feel a tingling in their skin, or get goose bumps, when their intuition is telling them something is right.
Some feel headaches when things are wrong, or a very bad feeling in their gut.
To figure out how your body processes intuitive insight, start to notice how you feel in certain situations.
Do some people make you feel drained, or tired?
Do you get a panicky feeling when you’re in a room, a meeting, or a situation where things just feel “off?”
Notice whether you get a constricted feeling in your throat when you hear something sad.
When you’re happy or excited about something, does your heart feel light?
Do you hear a ringing in your ears at various times?
Do you get a nervous sensation in your solar plexus area when something is wrong or doesn't feel quite right?
Do you get sense of calm, or a lovely sensation around your heart chakra when something feels in place, it feels right?
2. See things in your “mind’s eye”
Are you a visual person? Your intuition works with your “mind’s eye.” Your intuition utilises your mind's eye, which is the third eye to give you information. Don’t let these terms scare you – this is as natural as visualization.
Close your eyes and picture a bright red apple, got it? You are using your mind's eye. In order to begin to trust your intuition using your mind's eye, close your eyes, quiet your mind, and allow yourself to visualise a scene relating to what you would like to know more about.
For example, you have met someone recently and you want to know if they are a good fit for you. Close your eyes, and ask for an image to appear that will tell you more about them.
If you see a snake, for example, and you don’t like that, it might mean they are not so great. If you see a cute kitten, that means they are OK. Be patient, and wait for the pictures and images to come to you.
3. Look for signs to appear
Another great way intuition works with your sense of seeing is by giving you signs you can see with your physical eyes. If you need help with making a decision, ask for signs to appear to help you decide what to do. Then pay attention to what you see. You might notice a billboard that says exactly what to do, or you might see a flower, or a bird, or a series of numbers that helps you lean towards a helpful direction.
4. Listen for inner guidance
Intuition often presents itself as a very wise and intelligent voice that comes through your head. When you “hear” guidance like this, it is called “clear hearing”. To develop your intuition by listening to your inner guidance – you have to quiet your mind and listen to the thoughts that come in.
When your intuition speaks, it is always quiet, calm, still, and wise. It will take some practice to learn how to differentiate your ordinary thoughts (ego) from the guidance of your intuition, but with time and patience, you will become a professional at it!
5. Listen for guidance in the form of words from others, or music you hear
Clear Hearing also works through the words of others, or through music. Let’s say you’re pondering whether or not to go out on a hack with your horse, or go to an event or show, and you want to know whether or not it's a good idea. You'd like to ask your intuition what the best decision would be. Just make a note to pay attention to any guidance you get (if you’re not paying attention, you won’t see or hear the signs even when they’re all around you!).
Next, just listen to what others are saying. You might overhear a person telling someone else that they just got back from the most wonderful event or show. Or you might hear a song that talks about how nice it is to stay home.
Your intuition will thrive once you begin working with it and allow it to work for you. All you need to do is make a commitment to using it, and to trust the guidance you receive.
Most importantly, remember to have fun with it. The more your approach your sense of intuition with wonder, delight, love, and joy, the more easily it will flow.
