Follow Your Intuition...

Ever had a moment where you had a feeling strange feeling about something but you couldn’t put your finger on it? Then later you realized that your gut or inner guidance was trying to tell you something? I call it Gypsy Intuition and it is a powerful tool that we all have but some never truly develop it.

So what is intuition anyway? Well it’s knowing something without any words and having a sense of something without explanation. It often comes to you as thoughts, sensations or feelings that you hardly notice until later. You look back and think “I knew I was supposed to do that” or “I had a bad feeling about that.”

Each of us is intuitive and we receive guidance in a variety of ways. Your emotions speak to you and show you ways to follow our heart. Your mind gives you inspiration for new ideas. It will tell you when something is good or bad for you and you can learn to distinguish these thoughts to make the right decisions. You see your intuition is constantly guiding you into a better place…if you follow it.

Did you know that your intuition is the really the voice of your soul? Think about that for a minute. Your soul is speaking to you and if you listen you will find ways to bring yourself into higher path and purpose. When you follow your intuition you will be free flowing and more energy will be passing through you when you don’t follow it your life will be a struggle.

The first thing you need to do to develop your intuition is to get in touch with your emotions. Feelings are little flags that signal your attention. The next time you have a negative feeling about something or someone, don’t disregard it, dig deeper and try to understand what your intuition is trying to tell you. Things like if you are seeing the wrong person and you gut is telling you so but you continue to ignore it can be very painful in the end. Believe me, I know from experience. Or maybe you should take a certain job or purchase a new home or car. You might not like what you are hearing or you ignore it. Then later find out that you should have followed your intuition saved yourself a lot of pain, bad experience or discomfort.

The next thing to do is to strengthen your intuition. Keep a notebook close to you, and make notes when you have a certain insight and then see if it comes true. Another fun exercise is to make some predictions and see how many you get right. In time you will strengthen that intuition muscle.

Get into a quiet place and center yourself. Follow your breathing, in and out…relax with every breath you take.

Make a connection with your heart and imagine that your heart is directly connected to the truth and trust it.

Then make a connection with something that you are curious about and ask your question. Invite your body to lean in (such as yes I want that). When you pull back that means that it’s not good for you or you don’t want to go there.

Then wait for your intuition to give you a signal and see if you can find the answer. Be patient, it could take few minutes to come through to you depending on your ability to fully process the request. Practice this process and watch how your intuitive abilities grow you and you become happier with the direction you are taking and happiness in your life.

Thank you for stopping by my friend…Have a magical day!
