Clear your mind and connect with your wisest self.
You are intuitive, whether you realize it or not. There’s a higher knowing within you. It’s always there and available to support you. It may communicate or express itself as a feeling, a vision, a voice, or a simple knowing. The challenge for most people is in recognizing their intuition and distinguishing between it, the ego, emotions, and their thinking mind. Intuitive knowings aren’t like other types of thoughts or feelings. They are quiet, simple, arise from an inner state of detachment, and are easily overlooked. In contrast, the ego, emotional reactions, and the thinking mind’s conclusions are more intense, adamant, and charged. It’s nearly impossible to connect with your intuitive center when consumed by chaotic states of mind. Yet, it’s when you’re riled, agitated, or anxious that you need your higher knowing the most. To bridge the chasm between disordered thinking and inner wisdom, you must clear away the messiness and noise of reactive emotional and mental states. Learn 8 steps to cultivate a quiet, spacious, inner environment—one that supports you in recognizing and understanding your intuition.
“Calm down. Go to a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. Sit in a chair. Close your eyes. Breathe. Take slow, even and long inhales and exhales. Take your attention away from your thinking mind and your feelings. Place your focus on your heart center. See it as a reliable, loving space in your body that has one desire: to love. Imagine a field of love emanating from your heart and surrounding you. See every cell in your body filling up with love and relaxing. When your mind kicks in with chatter, questions, or complaints, exhale them and return your focus to your heart center. There’s nothing else for you to do. Sit. Inhale. Exhale. Focus on your heart area. Do this often, and whenever you feel tension rising inside of you.”
“Detach from all outcomes by affirming: I trust in the Divine order, even what I can’t see it. I release the outcome to Spirit, and ask for guidance.”
“Your intuition doesn’t wear a watch. It’s not motivated by urgency, desperation, or repetition. In fact, these qualities hinder its expression. To hear it, you must cultivate an inner state of serenity and ease.”
