You’ve heard of intuition before. Surely, we all have.
It’s a common word that we use in the English language. Yet few of us seem to understand the power of the word and what it entails.
So let’s break it down.
What is intuition?
Have you ever had a hunch about something? An inkling in the back of your head that kept you pushing towards some kind of unforeseen goal? Maybe you had no idea what the end product was going to be, but you knew subconsciously in your mind what it could be, where it could go and what you could do to get there.
This ladies and gentlemen is a hunch. A product of intuition.
A few months back, I had a hunch that writing was something I needed to do. Particularly THIS writing. Writing these articles day after day, putting my thoughts into written words and putting them out into the world, regardless if anyone read them. There was something invigorating about seeing my thoughts contained in writing. I had a hunch that it was something I needed to do, so I made sure it happened. There was intuition at work here, enough subconscious understanding that allowed me to fulfill my goal.
This was something I felt that I needed to do.
Intuition can help us maximize what we get out of life. If you learn to cultivate and contain the powers that it possesses, you can learn to understand the value that your intuition holds.
I understood mine, even in a primitive sense. Maybe, just maybe my thoughts would resonate with other people and they would share this thought around and it could positively impact someone’s life. This isn’t something that’s set in stone but it’s the potential that’s important. My intuition helped me to recognize that.
How do you learn to trust your intuition?
Firstly, you need to have the courage to follow your heart and your own intent. Without this confidence in yourself, it wont work. You need clarity, as this can provide unbiased insight into the best direction to head. Life’s full of confusing and sometimes contradicting choices, so it’s best to understand the best path to take.
You need to start thinking beyond your sense of self and look at things through a bigger lens. If you’re trusting your intuition and learning to follow a clearer path, you need to learn to tolerate truths that might conflict with your mission. Your inner voice might say one thing and the world hands you something else. Tolerance will teach you to trust your inner voice and restrain you from lashing out, making rash and hasty decisions.
Learning to trust yourself is still the most important thing.
