Five Simple Steps for Developing Intuition

By Yvonne Perry

I believe everyone is intuitive regardless of background. I’m not saying that everyone has the makings of being a psychic medium, but we are all born with a varying degree of intuitiveness. I’m sure you can think of a time when you have experienced an inner knowing, voice, vision, or feeling that instructed you not to go in a certain direction, or to make a particular selection, or perhaps you knew when someone was lying to you.  

While we are born with intuition, we can choose to either shut it out and ignore it or listen to this guidance and allow it to become clearer. By choosing to develop your intuition, you can gain insight into daily situations and make more informed decisions throughout your life. 

Some ways to tap into your intuition include the following:

Grounding. Electricity always needs to be grounded in order not to overload. We have an electric field around us that is our personal energy. It can be grounded to the Earth through walks in nature, working in the garden, or visualizing a cord of light extending from your feet into the Earth.

Meditation. To find your intuitive self, you have to be alone in order to get to know who you are, but many times we are too busy to tune into the inner voice of guidance. Meditation or silence allows us to hear our intuition. A lot of people think meditation is a state of not having any thoughts but the idea is to let the thoughts come and go without being attached to them. You will know when you have tapped into higher wisdom. The goal in meditation is to let go and just be.

Conscious breathing is very balancing, calming, and beneficial. It refreshes every cell in our body as we take in oxygen. Five minutes of deep breathing while counting your inhalations and exhalations can help restore a sense of calmness and regulate the heartbeat. Controlling and counting the breaths develops the concentration and focus needed to manage mental noise. Do this while sitting in a comfortable position with your spine straight.

Writing or journaling allows us to clear our minds of distracting thoughts and get down to what is really bothering us. This is when we can begin to see the solutions that come from within. Before beginning your writing session, light a candle and ask for guidance. Then, write whatever comes into your head. You may be surprised at what you read later.

Yoga is one of the best modalities because it incorporates grounding, centering, breathing, and exercise while connecting with the Divine. Even if only for a few minutes, this will help open the chakras and refresh your mind and body.

If you want to learn how to manage your intuitive gift and clear your energy field, begin to nurture your body, mind, and spirit. Your time and attention to the spiritual aspect of who you are will bring forth the knowledge of your inner self.

    Yvonne, love your tip about Yoga. I just started practicing more on a regular basis and find it is very grounding and helps to center me. Some mornings though I am so anxious to get into my studio that I have a hard time being “still” but it is a practice and I know when I do center myself it really helps with my day.
    Thank you again for writing this book which I know will help many!!

  3. Maxine Thompson Says:

    Yvonne, great article. Glad to be reminded not to take on other’s energy when I do work for them. My late sister used to practice this grounding cord. Glad to see this in a book now. She’d say people liked to use your energy to get their work done.

    Thanks again!

    Can’t wait to purchase the book.

    Barbara, I’m the same way. I have to force myself to stop and spend time in meditation before going to the computer to work. My day goes a lot better when I do take this time though. Thanks for leaving a comment here.
