Intuition is often called the “small voice within,” but even a tiny voice must be heard or it will disappear. And there are plenty of reasons our intuition may have gone silent.
Think about how LOUD life is. There is work shouting, “do me;” bills whispering, “you forgot me,” and if your house is anything like my mine, kids and dogs constantly begging, “feed me.” We’re so busy we often can’t even hear ourselves thinking—much less pause in-between Emails to attend to incoming intuitive messages.
It wasn’t always this way, was it? Remember the precious moments when you were “in the flow?” As an adult, perhaps your intuition was last active during a dream or when you needed spiritual guidance. Perhaps you provided insight to a friend or received a much-needed sign for yourself. For many of us, our intuitive channels were most open when we were children, before we learned that we weren’t supposed to believe in fairies, hear the poetry in the wind, or listen to our dreams. What we knew, we simply “knew;” and “that was that. “
Intuition is the key to a loving and joyful life. It’s our soul’s way of speaking to us, the Greater Spirit’s way of communing with us, the world’s way of telling us what to attend to. How can we reawaken, reaffirm, and regroup the gift that attunes us to the very life we’re meant to be living?
Here are a few steps that can reboot a lagging intuition and return you to your truth:
Think back to the last time you followed an intuitive urge. How did you know your intuition was contacting you? How did the situation turn out?
There are four main types of intuition. Review your memories and decide which of the following are your strongest. Physically kinesthetic intuition involves recognizing messages through bodily awareness, including physical sensations, emotions, smell, and the sense of touch. Spiritually kinesthetic intuition centers on simply “knowing” the truth. Verbal intuition includes hearing psychic words, tones, music, or messages. Visual intuition entails seeing intuitive images, pictures, “slide shows,” and colors, when awake or dreaming.
Now ask yourself what gets in the way of tuning into your intuition. These resistance points could include fears, such as of being judged, receiving information that is scary, or looking foolish; misperceptions, such as that intuition is hard or not acceptable in your religion; or trust issues, such as doubting your own intuitive abilities.
Ask questions of your higher or intuitive self or the Divine on everyday matters. For instance, ask to sense, know, hear, or see what to make for dinner or to wear that day. The more you use your intuition, the more available it will be for you.
5. Be grateful.
Thank yourself or the Divine every time your intuition pays off. If you smile at it, it will smile back—and open it’s “mouth” even wider. Know, too, that finding “intuitive moments” doesn’t need to be hard. In a moment of confusion, breathe deeply and ask for an intuitive insight. Get up in the morning and ask for intuitive guidance throughout the day. Grab a book and ask to open to the page you need to read. Even the busyness of life—especially the busyness of life—doesn’t need to interfere with aligning with the guidance always available.
