Do you believe in synchronicity? Do you believe in ESP? Have
you ever felt a strong hunch?
Have you had that eerie feeling that something is about to happen,
and to your surprise, it eventually translated to reality?
Welcome to the world of intuition! This is when you feel strongly
about something without logical explanations. All shamans have a
developed sense of intuition and it enhances thier life in many
The types of
Here are the types of intuition...
Intuition comes in three impressions: clairvoyance or "the
third eye", sensing clearly, and feeling through listening.
Clairvoyance refers to the capacity to see beyond
what others see. This is when you are able to second guess what
is happening somewhere or what is about to happen.
Sensing clearly is what we commonly know as "hunch"
or "gut feel." This is the time when you are overwhelmed
with a feeling and you cannot explain it. All you can say is, "I
Feeling through listening or clairaudience,
on the other hand, is the capacity to "listen" between
the lines. Intuition also happens at times when a certain sound,
like car's honk or a bird's twitting - ushers in an intense
Some groups argue that women have greater intuition powers than
men. Astrologers even insist that people born under the Scorpio
or Pisces signs are naturally intuitive. However, studies have shown
that anyone can develop intuition.
What go the trouble of unlocking the powers of intuition? What
do you stand to gain?
- 1. First, intuition promotes better relations.
This is so because intuition makes you more sensitive of the
thoughts and feelings of other people. This makes you more conscious
on how to convey your messages in such a way that you will not
hurt or offend anyone. It helps you communicate better, especially
with those whom you love, because you are intuitive enough to
- 2. Second, intuition enhances your creativity.
Intuition stimulates the release of creative juices as you search
for venues for expression. Some intuitive persons engage in
painting, writing poetry, gardening, sewing, pursue music or
- 3. Lastly, intuition helps you find your authentic
self that lies buried through out the years. In this
sense, intuition has healing powers. Although not in the physical
sense, it allows you to delve deep into your soul to eradicate
some negative energy buried in it.
Ways to Develop
With these reasons, are you ready to develop your intuition?
Here are some ways to unlock this gift:
1) Think Good Thoughts
Worry and fear block your intuitive powers. Improve your intuitive
ability by cultivating a worry-free and fear-free state of mind.
Stay positive in order to attract good energy and enable you to
recognize imminent feelings and events.
One of the best ways to attract good energy is to be 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.
2) Trust A Higher Source and Have Patience
Trust that a higher source knows what is best. Trust means believing
that you will get it, despite not knowing how. Do not get too stressed
about developing intuition. Relax and let it flow.
After letting go of 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 would be surprised that you will
get your answer in a variety of ways.
3) Believe in your first impressions.
First impressions last. When meeting people for the first time,
be observant of what you feel. One time, I introduced myself to
a fellow. Upon our initial handshake, I felt a sense of discomfort
or dislike towards the person. As it turned out, he duped his business
partner before moving on to our neighborhood. Initial impressions
are signals to us by intuition.
4) Work With A Certified Hypnotist
Get yourself hypnotized. Our image of old style hypnosis consists
of a pendulum moving back and forth. Work with an expert. The internet
can be a source of hypnotic programs that can strengthen your intuition.
Technically, meditation is being in the alpha state. Meditation
allows you to find inner peace. Those who are new on this may opt
for a guided meditation. There are books and tapes on this topic.
Meditation is a technique to clean the clutter in your mind and
heart and unload you of the hurt buried deep within you. A cluttered
mind makes it difficult for intuition to come in. There are so many
ways to meditate: take a yoga class, or just simply practice some
breathing that could bring you straight to Zen.
Intuition is helpful and practical. It can sometimes facilitate
the achievement of your dreams and goals. Many find it easier to
make decisions when relying on this gift. It can even save lives.
Develop intuition now and reap benefits you have never imagined.
