How To Enhance Your Intuition


By Abbas Abedi

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 ways.

The types of intuition

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 just know."

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 feeling.

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.


The benefits of intuition

What go the trouble of unlocking the powers of intuition? What do you stand to gain?

  1. 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 understand them.
  2. 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 drama, etc.
  3. 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 Intuition

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.

5) Meditation

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.
