Whether you’re a novice or a natural pro, we are all psychic to a certain degree, but choosing to cultivate this inner-superpower is in your hands. A feeling that is hard to ignore, however, is your intuition. So, what exactly does it mean to be intuitive? You’re not the first person to ask such a question as the terms “intuitive” and “psychic” are often used interchangeably. While they are similar, there’s one slight difference.
Intuition can be described as an innate “gut feeling” that strikes you without overthinking. You don’t use logic or research to form your opinion about a certain person or situation. It’s just a sense that something isn’t quite right, but you can’t exactly explain why. Intuition stems from your natural instincts – aka survival mode – which comes from the third chakra, otherwise known as the solar plexus. It’s no surprise that this is located between your belly button and bottom of rib cage, or your “gut.” While an intuitive instinct is spontaneous, psychic skills are triggered by conscious will. This, in turn, will provide you with more clarity about events, people, places, tangible objects, etc. Despite being a “fight or flight” reaction, you can develop your intuitive abilities – here’s how.
1. Trust Yourself
Your gut feelings are not an accident and the more confidence you have in your intuition, the faster you will be able to solve problems, achieve goals, and make smarter decisions in life. In order to trust your intuition, you have to trust yourself first.
2. Analyze Your Intuition
Your intuition is with you every single day, so make a conscious effort to analyze your intuitive decisions. When you’re learning how to strengthen this tool, it’s not uncommon to rush the process. Slow down and take some time to really think about the path(s) you’re taking based on your gut instinct. Journaling can be an effective tool in this case.
Meditation is a wonderful practice to incorporate into your life, but when it comes to strengthening your intuition, it’s a must. Not only does it help you free your mind from distractions so that you are able to focus on your third chakra even more, you’ll also find that it’s easier to detect your intuition through images, emotions, words, or physical feelings. Even just ten minutes a day can help you bolster your intuitive skills. Who knows? You may get to the point where you can practice intuitive healing, a form of holistic healing that is accessed through a deep meditative state. When you reach this place, it’s possible to pick up on intuitive information about others – not just yourself.
