Five Steps To Unlock And Trust Your Intuition
Listen Carefully And Write Down Your Thoughts
Listen very carefully to your inner thoughts and gut feelings, throughout the day. We all have this ability to communicate with our inner voice.
Our minds can get very noisy, so the best way to start practising using your intuition is to take note of any repetitive thoughts or feelings you have.
By keeping a note, it can help us to feel empowered and more in control then letting the monkey in our mind chatter to us all the time! Quite often we can be thinking of all the hundreds of ‘things to do’ and this can clog up what needs to come through.
Be proactive and write down your ‘to do’ list so that it’s not all in your mind. It can feel so empowering to get our thoughts on to paper. I see it a bit like our emails; we have an inbox, spam box and send box – declutter your spam box! Focus on your ‘to do’ list and write down any thoughts that just ‘appear’ out of nowhere. This is your intuition talking to you. Your intuition will only speak from love and never fear, or anything that can cause harm to another.
Our mind is often filled with clutter and junk; clear it out! Start a journal and write down all your thoughts and feelings each day. Writing can be very healing and it will teach you a lot about yourself.
Clean Up and Cleanse
By clearing and keeping tidy our physical space, it literally rids our entire homes of old negative stagnant energy, which may have built up.
Have you ever walked in a room after an argument and it felt like a wall of dense energy? That energy is real and can affect us, so it’s important we cleanse our homes and keep our space tidy.
It will help clear our minds of stress as we do this. Cleaning and tidying is very healing for the mind, body & soul whilst clearing all the clutter. Give away any old decent items to charity or friends.
Exercise and Eat Healthily!
When we exercise we clear our mind, body & spirit of all the toxicity, which we may have stored there. Exercising not only helps keep us in shape, but it literally rids the toxins out of our body. You may notice your intuition at work whilst exercising as thoughts may literally just ‘pop’ in as if from nowhere! This is your intuition speaking directly to you, so notice what thoughts pop in!
Be conscious of what you are eating on a day to day basis. Notice how you feel after you eat certain foods. Avoid the ones which leave you feeling bloated. The more you actively start noticing what is going on in your body, the more clear and empowered you will start to feel.
Eating fresh healthy salads, fruits & vegetables keeps our body young, active and vibrant. Fresh fruit juices and smoothies are amazing for replenishing the mind, body & soul.
Be cautious about the words you speak. Quite often, we can start talking to others, and ourselves, angrily and from pain and upset. This can put us on a downward spiral and create more stress. Ask yourself when you find yourself gossiping or being mean about another person, how you would feel if someone were talking about you in this way. Stop and think about what you are saying. Ask yourself if it’s going to help make you feel any better by speaking these words.
We don’t often realise that our words are energy and this energy can grow and grow. Do you wish to keep feeding fear or would you rather feed positive and loving thoughts? Also, ask yourself if you would say what you are about to say to a good friend. Speak extra nicely to yourself! It’s hugely empowering to actively be aware of your words and voice and it stops any power struggles that may be occurring too. Speak in appreciation and gratitude and it will literally turn around any situation.
As you are doing all of the above steps, it will help to build your intuitive muscle and also help you to trust your own judgements more as you move through your life. The more that you actively listen to your gut feelings, the more you will start to notice how you are making the correct choices for you, without being dependant on anyone or anything else.
Remember YOU have the power to change. By listening to your intuition it can literally create magic in your life.
