We get into trouble when we see signs about people, places and things, and we don’t act on what we are feeling. How many times have you said to yourself, “I knew it, but I just didn’t listen to my intuition?”
Here are some ways to deepen your connection with your “gut instinct”, “inner sense,” “intuition”–call it what you want.
1. Pen It Out.
When you get that “inner guidance,” don’t get busy doing something else. Give it the time it deserves, and one way of doing this is to write down what you feel. Don’t censor what you are writing, just let go and let the pen touch the paper, and see what is written. It’s almost like you are an observer and your “gut” is telling you what’s really going on through written words.
2. Wrap Yourself in Nature.
Yes, go to a park or hike a trail (if you have time to do that), being around a tall oak, for example. A natural setting can be very spiritual and conducive to reflect on what your gut is telling you.
3. Connect with a Kindred Soul.
Spend time with a friend or an acquaintance who you feel is in touch with her intuition. Share thoughts about what’s going on and ask for her feedback. It may be quite interesting to hear her reaction.
4. Mirror Talk.
Look at yourself in the mirror. They say the eyes are the window to the soul. If you’re challenged by a problem, ask inwardly for a solution. Keep focusing on your eyes, which connect to a deeper part of you, allow the answer to surface.
