We all have moments in our lives where we feel something happening spiritually and emotionally, yet cannot put a finger on what exactly is arising within us. Listening to our bodies and our intrinsic understanding of ourselves can help us identify what is occurring. This is part of our intuition. Essentially, our intuition is a spiritual voice inside of all of us, that tells us when something is right or wrong, good or bad, or sometimes a mixture of all of these realities. How we respond (or fail to respond) to our intuition can impact the kinds of decisions we make on a day-to-day basis. For example, you are invited to attend an event that you have never been to before. Something within you tells you not to go. You may sometimes chalk this up to fear or nerves, however, many times, our intuition may be telling us that this particular event may not be a good space for us. Another example, sometimes we choose friends, lovers or partners who do not have our best interests at heart. Our intuition continuously provides us with signs of these individuals’ intentions, but do we listen?
I want you to start paying more attention to your intuition today. Do you meditate? I ask because meditation is one way to become more aligned with what our intuition is revealing to us. Through this undisrupted silence, we can become more attuned to what our spiritual self needs, emotionally and physically. If your intuition reveals something you do not feel prepared to handle, ask yourself, if I don’t handle it now, will it arise later? Most likely it will. Here are 5 steps for listening to your intuition:
Sit in uninterrupted silence for at least 5-10 minutes per day. Clear your mind and listen to the words that come to you at that time. There are always words in our brains, our job is to be still enough to hear it.
Be mindful of your surroundings and the individuals you have chosen to be in your presence. Do they support you? Is the relationship one-sided? If so, why do you continue to hold on?
Are you anxious often? If you suffer from anxiety, it could be that your intuition is being ignored. Perhaps you are not listening to what your spiritual self wants and needs, so you continue to make decisions that harm you, thus causing more anxiety. Listen closely and let go of what needs to be eliminated from your life.
Exercise. The purpose of exercise is not only about your physical well-being but also about your spiritual and emotional well-being, as well. Many times, we are able to fully meditate when we are exercising as well, leading to more mental clarity.
You are not always in control. Embrace this in order to hear the words your intuition is constantly revealing to you. The more we try to control everything, the less in tune we are to what our intuition is continuously revealing to us.
