I believe that our soul is constantly sending us information to help us along our spiritual path. Intuition is one of our inborn tools the soul uses to relay messages to us. Intuitive messages can come as a sudden “knowing,” gut feelings, thoughts, images, emotions, or bodily sensations. Intuition is a powerful source of information, creativity, and inspiration. When we follow our intuition our life flows more easily, things seem to fall into place, and we are generally more satisfied because we know we are following our soul path.
We all have intuitive potential. It is not something that only a few gifted people possess. It is a natural ability that we all have and a skill we can all develop. As children we freely access our intuition. Unfortunately, we often receive negative messages from our parents, teachers, or peers and we then begin to doubt our intuition.
Once we lose that trust in our intuitive knowledge and ourselves we begin to close down that channel of information. We still receive intuitive messages, but we ignore them. When we do not honour these intuitive impulses, our ability to hear our intuitive voice often fades and we miss valuable information.
How do we develop our Intuition? Fortunately, we never really lose the ability to be intuitive. With a little patience and practice we can rediscover our powerful intuitive potential. The first step is to increase our awareness of the intuitive impulses that we already receive. It is very important to trust and honor the natural intuitive abilities we already have.
There are a variety of ways in which we can do this. One is to practice meditation. Meditation, quietens the mind, stills the mental chatter, and enables us to shut out the many distractions that go on around us. To begin with start with just 5 minutes and slowly build up on that. The whole idea to begin with, is to get the mind to get used to this state of quietness. It will begin to expect it and over time, the period you can remain in this state will lengthen.
Develop good breathing habits. Many people breathe incorrectly. They breathe shallowly, inhaling from the chest, when to breathe correctly one needs to inhale deeply causing the diaphragm to expand. Correct breathing, helps to oxygenate the blood, and clears the mind. It is also very relaxing, and a great way of dissolving any tension or anxiety.
Another way of relaxing and of getting into a state, which is conducive to meditation and so connecting with and listening to your intuition; is through music. Find a piece that calms and soothes you. It does not have to be relaxation music, it can be anything that you love and that induces a tranquil state of mind.
Life can at times be very difficult, and often we are at a loss to know how to take the next step. Your soul, knows what you need and what your purpose is. By making time in your life to develop the connection between soul and intuition, you will ensure the best possible conditions by which you can follow your life path and your true purpose. Something I believe to be very worthwhile and can only enrich your life.
Love and light
