“Intuition is seeing with the soul”
— DEAN KOONTZ
As you progress on your path towards ascension, honing and trusting your intuition is one of the most important skills to develop. As the old, corrupt system is falls apart, we are going to be faced with the lots of truths coming to light - as well as lots of falsities! Developing and fine tuning into your intuitive senses will help you discern and guide you on your path towards your purpose.
When it comes to making a decision or discerning the truth in a situation, the majority of us use logic - the predominately masculine energetic - to come to what we see as a rational conclusion. Whilst it's extremely important to look at all the details in a situation, if you’re doing this from a purely logical viewpoint, you can sometimes ignore the subtle nudges that can only be picked up by "feeling into" the situation and using the intuitive feminine energy that flows through us all.
So how do you access your intuitive energy to see through the layers?
I've put together a number of tools that I use, and have used that can help fine tune your intuitive senses. If you have any to add to this list, please feel free to drop a comment below.
1 - Neutrality
If you have an emotional attachment to the outcome of a situation, this attachment will want to pull you into the direction it favours and so your intuitive senses will not lead you towards the truth. You can only discern truth, clarity and find that "ah ha" moment when you take a step back and release any emotional attachment to what you are trying to uncover. This isn't the same as tuning out of your subtle, emotional nudges, but rather the attachment to a specific end result.
Looking at a situation with neutrality can be difficult for some, although working through your attachments through journalling (discussed later) and other outlets can be a great help.
Find a comfortable place where you won't be disturbed. Sit comfortably and focus on your breathing, taking nice slow breaths. Turn your attention to the decision or situation in question and notice if you feel any pulls towards wanting a specific outcome. Don't judge these attachments, rather let them be visible to you, and then visualise yourself detaching and looking at the situation as an observer. From this viewpoint allow yourself time to focus on the feelings and nudges that come to you whilst remaining in this neutral space.
2 - Journalling
One of the best tools I've found for everything from decision making to healing from difficult emotions and old trauma is journalling. This can also be a great help when working to strengthen your intuition.
Jotting down your thoughts, feelings and emotions each day can help you get better acquainted with your inner self and your patterns and beliefs. I feel that the first step towards awakening (and this includes third eye awakening or intuition) is self awareness. Once you gain more "inner-standing" you will begin to feel the truth within everything around you.
3 - Meditation
Establishing a regular mediation practice can help you clear mental chatter, tune in to yourself on a deeper level and connect to your team of spiritual helpers and guides.
Setting aside time, even if it's only five minutes per day, for meditation can have an enormous impact on your spiritual connection and psychic awareness. In particular guided mediations that help you connect to your higher self, your guides and to access higher awareness and wisdom.
4 - Divination Tools
Tools such as tarot cards, oracle cards and dowsing can really help you sharpen your intuitive senses. In the same way that exercise helps you get fitter, Your intuition gets stronger with regular practice and consistency.
If you have any tarot or oracle decks then keep them in view so you are prompted to pick them up and use them. When using your cards or tools, remember to listen into your thoughts and feelings and not just the meanings in the book.
Practicing with a trusted friend can also help you gain important feedback. You could also journal your readings to help you gain insight, build a connection with your inner knowing and a relationship with your deck.
5 - Creativity
Not such an obvious one but, from my own experience is the most important and impactful in aiding your inner connectivity.
Creative thought allows you to open your mind to new ideas and explore your imagination which is the same sense utilised when in communication with your higher awareness or spirit team.
We are creator beings, it is part of our soul make up. Creativity is the core of who we are, it’s encoded in our DNA! If you begin to immerse yourself in a creative endeavour you’ll find a connection to your inner world where your innate higher gifts and inner wisdom resides.
Before I conclude this post, I’d like to add another important factor in working with your intuitive inner knowings. That is TRUST!
Years ago, when I first began acknowledging that my intuitive nudges were correct, I had an epiphany… This inner sense had always been there but I just hadn’t trusted my feelings enough, I had simply passed it off as “imagination”.
In love and light as always, Wild ones!
