Have you had that experience when all of a sudden you just had this huge hunch that something is about to happen, and to your surprise, that intuition was eventually translated into reality?
When you feel strongly about something without logical basis to it, that's called intuition. It comes in three impressions: clairvoyance or "the third eye", sensing clearly and feeling through listening.
Clairvoyance is when your eye goes beyond what it can see. This is when you know what is happening somewhere.
Sensing clearly is basically what we refer to as "hunch" or "gut feel." This is the time when you are overwhelmed with a feeling and you can't explain it and all you can say is "I just know."
On the other hand, feeling through listening or clairaudience is being able to "listen" between the lines. Intuition also happens at times when a certain sound, whatever it is - be it a car's honk or a bird's twitting - ushers in an intense feeling.
Some people say that only a number of people are gifted with intuition, but many studies confirm that anyone can develop this gift.
Why the need to develop intuition? Why not leave your emotional and psychological state as it is? First and foremost, intuition promotes good communication. It makes you more sensitive to the people around you; it often keeps you from hurting those you love because you are intuitive enough to understand them. Intuition also makes you far more creative. Intuition means releasing more creative juices for any means of expression. Lastly, intuition has a healing power. This healing power is not in the physical sense, but in delving deep into your soul to eradicate negative energy buried in it.
With that being said, are you ready to develop your intuition? Here are some ways to unlock this gift:
Get yourself hypnotized. Hypnosis is not limited to watching a pendulum move back and forth. Perform self-hypnosis, go to a hypnotherapist or take advantage of any number of hypnotic programs that can strengthen your intuition.
Meditating means finding peace in yourself. If your mind and heart are cluttered with too much baggage and hurt, you will not be able to quiet down that part of you that could eventually initiate intuition. There are so many ways to meditate, including taking a yoga class or simply practicing some breathing that could bring you straight to Zen.
3. Think positive
A worry-free, fear-free state can do so much to improve your intuitive ability. By staying positive, you attract good energy that will be able to easily recognize imminent feelings and events.
4. Just let go
What does this mean? If you are on the brink of making a huge decision, let go of all the inhibitions and head to a quiet place where you can find out where the letting go has brought you. Sometimes you just have to listen to the voice within you, and that voice won't come out unless you let go.
5. Never expect
After letting go of the inhibitions and all those things that stop you from thinking and feeling clearly, never expect for an answer right away. Never expect that the "hunch" will fall in your lap immediately. Give it a little time and you will be surprised that -- wham! -- now you have your answer.
6. Believe in your first impressions
When you see someone for the first time and think that they are a bit too arrogant for your taste, chances are that impression actually holds true. Most of the time, first impressions are brought by intuition.
7. Stay happy!
See? All you need to be intuitive is to stay happy! Happiness attracts immense power and such power includes intuition. In tapping into your intuition, your motivation must be happiness and contentment. Given that premise, intuition will come to you easily.
Intuition can lead you to something that cannot be achieved otherwise. A lot of lives have been saved by intuition alone. Decisions are easier done if armed by this gift. Develop intuition now and reap benefits you have never imagined.
