Have you had that experience when all of a sudden you just had this huge hunch that something is about to happen, and to your surprise, that intuition was eventually translated to reality?
When you feel strongly about something without logical basis to it, that’s called intuition. It comes in three impressions: clairvoyance or “the third eye”, sensing clearly and feeling through listening.
“Don’t try to comprehend with your mind. Your minds are very limited. Use your intuition.”
― Madeleine L’Engle, A Wind in the Door
Learning To Read Between The Lines
Some of you might not like this word Clairvoyance but all Clairvoyance is, is when your eyes goes beyond what it can see. This is when you know what is happening somewhere before it has actually happened a natural human trait we all have and can awaken if we take out the time from our busy scheduled to listen to it.
Sensing clearly is basically what we refer to as “hunch” or “gut feel.” This is the time when you are overwhelmed with a feeling and you can’t explain it and all you can say is “I just know.”
Intuition has been something that I have come to use in my everyday life and even in my business transactions. Even though it is natural to man it is something that has to be practised everyday.
On the other hand, feeling through listening or clairaudience is being able to “listen” between the lines. Intuition also happens at times when a certain sound, whatever it is – be it a car’s honk or a bird’s twitting – ushers in an intense feeling.
They say only a number of people are gifted with intuition. Astrologers even insist that people born under the Scorpio or Pisces signs are naturally intuitive it almost borders on E.S.P. But studies have been sprouting left and right that proclaim that anyone can develop intuition.
I personally myself believe the latter that anyone can develop this gift.
I am a LEO born in the August month and I have been using my gift of Intuition to help me in life. I found that I had the gift when I was six years of age when a situation happened in our home. No one knew that it was anything but I decided in my heart that I would allow myself to cultivate it through out my life and see where it would lead me.
And lead me well it has.
“I believe in intuitions and inspirations…I sometimes FEEL that I am right. I do not KNOW that I am.”
― Albert Einstein
Why The Need For Us To Develop Intuition?
Why the need to develop intuition, you ask? Why not let your emotional and psychological state as it is? First and foremost, intuition promotes good communication. It makes you more sensitive to the people around you; it often keeps you from hurting those you love because you are intuitive enough to understand them. Intuition also makes you far more creative than ever. Intuition means releasing more creative juices for any means of expression. Lastly, intuition has a healing power. This healing power is not in the physical sense, but in delving deep into your soul to eradicate some negative energy buried in it.
With that being said, are you ready to develop your intuition for 2017 and beyond for your greatest success and challenges ahead? Here are some ways to unlock this gift if you have answered yes:
Oh yes, get yourself hypnotised. Hypnosis is not limited to watching a pendulum move back and forth. You can Perform self-hypnosis or you can avail of hypnotic programs that can strengthen your intuition. This should not sound as scary as it might to some. All hypnosis is really is getting yourself into a relaxed state giving yourself space and time to think deeper about what is that you are doing with your self every single day.
In business we just don’t seem to make important time for self actualisation. Self actualisation is not a selfish act it actually benefit those around you the most because you become a more happy and pleasant person to be around and work with. Give it a go and found our for your self.
Meditating means finding peace in yourself. If your mind and heart are cluttered with too many baggage and hurt, you wouldn’t be able to quiet down that part of you that could eventually initiate intuition. There are so many ways to meditate: take a yoga class, or just simply practice some breathing that could bring you straight to Zen.
Do you know how your state of mind is holding up in life will determine your success in 2017? So you kind of owe it to your self to take some time out to just take a deep breath.
3. Think positive!
Now this one I found difficult when starting out. I’m quit a positive person, but I have since found out that when your an entrepreneur and a small business owner things fly your way that you did not expect and holding that positive out look can be a great challenge for me, but I do it anyway and it really helps to clam my worries and nerves.
A worry-free, fear-free state could do so much to improve your intuitive ability. By staying positive, you attract good energy that would be able to easily recognise imminent feelings and events.
4. Just let go
Oh yes just letting go but what does this really mean? If you are on the brink of making a huge decision, let go of all the inhibitions and head to a quiet place where you could find out where the letting go has brought you. Sometimes you just have to listen to the voice within you, and that voice wouldn’t come out unless you let go.
5. Never expect
After letting go of the inhibitions and all those things that stop you from thinking and feeling clearly, never expect for an answer right away. Never expect that the “hunch” would fall on your lap immediately. Give it a little time then you’d just get surprised that — wham! — now you have your answer.
6. Believe in your first impressions
When you see someone for the first time and think that he is a bit too arrogant for your taste, chances are that impression actually holds true. Most of the time, first impressions are brought by intuition. Now some might feel this is to much but I have had experience with this and well, let just leave it at that for now I leave this for future articles.
7. Stay happy!
See? All you need to be intuitive is to stay happy! Happiness attracts immense power and such power includes intuition. In tapping your intuition, your motivation must be happiness and contentment. Given that premise, intuition will fall to you easily.
Intuition is helpful, because sometimes it leads you to something that cannot be achieved otherwise. A lot of lives have been saved by intuition alone. Decisions are easier done if armed by this gift. Develop intuition now and reap benefits you have never imagined for the coming year. I leave you with this quote by C. JoyBell C.
“Our bodies have five senses: touch, smell, taste, sight, hearing. But not to be overlooked are the senses of our souls: intuition, peace, foresight, trust, empathy. The differences between people lie in their use of these senses; most people don’t know anything about the inner senses while a few people rely on them just as they rely on their physical senses, and in fact probably even more.”
