Within each and every one of us is a source of internal guidance and inspiration. It’s an inner voice or feeling that directs you towards greater love, truth, and healing. It’s an energy that communicates to you from a place of spirit and unlimited potential. This force, energy and guidance is your intuition. Your sacred navigator and superpower on this journey called Life.
Connecting to and strengthening your inner voice is incredibly empowering, healing, life-enhancing, and beautiful. Your intuition is the voice of your soul, it is the means by which your spirit guides you, inspires you and communicates with you. When you follow the guidance of your soul, you live a divinely-inspired life, a life that is infused with purpose, synchronicity, ease, and grace. From the moment I decided to let my intuition guide my life, my whole world turned upside down. My naturally analytical mind filled with fears, doubts, and limits was no longer in charge and leading the way. My life began to be guided by a force bigger than me, a power that awakened me to my innate wisdom, potential, and truth.
I know the benefits of an intuitively-guided life and I would love for you to experience it too, so that next time life delivers you decisions, obstacles, and opportunities that might normally bring stress and confusion, you will have such a solid connection with your inner voice that you will trust yourself to make empowered decisions from within.
I guarantee, if you commit to listening to your wise-self, you will feel more aligned, in the flow, and inspired than ever before. I’ve pulled together six of my key tips, that when put into practice, will amp up your intuitive volume, frequency, and accuracy so that you can truly begin to live a life guided from within
1) Be Open & Willing
First things first, you must be open and willing to hear the guidance of your intuition for it to begin to guide your way. When you aren’t open and willing, you are energetically blocking it from coming forward. When you welcome your intuition forward, it’s instantly there for you.
2) Pay Attention
Simply paying more attention to how you feel or how your energy shifts is huge! Throughout your day when you are faced with a decision, are in the presence of a certain person, or engaging in an activity, notice how you energetically feel about it. When your intuition is saying, “Yes, this is good! This is the way!” You will feel light, in the flow, and expansive. When your intuition is saying, “Nope, try again…not this way.” You will feel heavier, a halting of energy flow, and constricted. A good motto is: Energy Up or Energy Down? If it’s up that’s a Yes, if it’s down that’s a No.
3) Slow Down
The ego is often the first and loudest to speak, so when we’re living in the fast lane, our ego is usually directing the way. The ego wants to be doing more and going faster. When you take time to slow down throughout your day, you will begin to notice your intuitive nudges more. Slowing down provides space for your soul to surface. Intuition tends to come to us through whispers and nudges. When you move slower, breathe deeper, relax, and find stillness these whispers and nudges are easier to hear. Let’s slow down right now… pause from reading this and take five deep breaths. Invite your body to soften and let go. Welcome yourself into this moment. The more present you are, the clearer your intuition will be.
Each time you practice tuning into your intuition your intuitive muscles grow stronger and stronger. Some suggested ways to practice: 1) Next time you’re watching a sporting event, intuitively choose the winner and the final game score. 2) When you have a list of errands to run for the day, intuitively decide the order in which you accomplish them (this opens you up to all kinds of divine timing and synchronicity!) 3) Hold objects or photos in your hands and see what intuitive impressions you receive. 4) Before answering the phone tune in and see if you can sense who is calling or texting you. The best part of this is that you can get really creative. Have fun and practice using your intuition in all sorts of different ways!
This one is a biggie. It is one of the most common areas of concern that I hear from people working on increasing their intuition, “How do I know if my intuition is right? How do I know it’s ok to trust it? What if I’m wrong?” My answer? Your intuition is always correct and it is always safe to trust it. Why? Because your intuition is the wise and loving voice of your soul.
How do you learn to trust? There’s no short-cut, no secret, no way to teach you to trust –you just have to do it. You have to make the decision and commitment to live from within. Over time you will learn that your intuition is worthy of your trust, but first you have to be willing to let go and surrender to your inner guide.
The last key that is going to amp up and solidify the connection to your intuition is gratitude. Gratitude is the rich soil that nurtures and supports any seed you plant in it. Every time you experience your intuition, feel thankful. Every time you feel a nudge here, or a pull there, get grateful for it! When you shower your intuition with gratitude you are lovingly strengthening it, honoring it, and helping it to grow.
You are naturally intuitive, we all are. May your life continue to be guided, inspired, and fulfilling, and may all that you seek be found from within.
