Beyond our five physical senses, we have six incredible powers known as our mental faculties. They are: Imagination, Intuition, Will, Memory, Reason and Perception. Everyone has these faculties. Some may be more developed than others, but with use and practice, these faculties can be strengthened. The stronger they become, the more they can help you create the life that you would love to live, creating the results you want in your life. In this article I am going to focus on the power of intuition and what you can do to recognize it and use it.
Intuition is the ability to know, an inner knowing that isn’t based on logic or rational thinking. It comes from information in the subconscious mind and uses little or no information from the physical senses.
You’ve probably walked into a room of people and felt the energy of the room, whether it’s upbeat or down and heavy. You’re picking up the thoughts and feelings of the people there. Or maybe you’ve gone home, walk in, and without anyone saying anything, you can FEEL that your spouse is in a bad mood. That’s your intuition.
We want to pay attention to our feelings. When we are still, and we quiet our mind from the busyness of life, we can listen and hear what our intuition is telling us. By recognizing our intuition, we can develop it and use it more in our life.
What happens when we get these “feelings” is that we are picking up the energy of the person, or the room. We are picking up the energy of the thoughts. Everything in the universe is energy, EVERYTHING. Rocks are energy, concrete, any substance you might think is solid, is still energy. Energy vibrates. Our intuition is sensing the vibrations and we receive it as feelings. Vibrations are everywhere. We send out and receive vibrations, all day long.
When you hear a loud horn and it frightens you, that is a vibration coming from your senses, not your intuition. Feeling the energy in the room comes from your intuitive sense. Intuition always comes from your non-physical senses. Notice the difference between sensing vibrations through your senses and from your intuitive mind. The more you do it, the clearer it will become.
Your intuition will come through differently than other thoughts you hear. The more you tune into hearing that voice, the more familiar it will become. Your intuition is the still small voice and will never be fearful or frantic. It’s a calm knowing. It can be that “gut-feeling”. You just know, you just sense what the truth is or what to do.
Exercising your intuition is tapping into your subconscious mind. Stay positive because negative thoughts will block your intuition. Allow your inner voice to be heard.
Started recognizing your intuition by being aware of your feelings and listening to the inner voice or you gut. The more you practice it, the stronger it will become. Listen and it will guide you to a better way of living.
“There is a universal, intelligent, life force that exists within everyone and everything. It resides within each one of us as a deep wisdom, an inner knowing. We can access this wonderful source of knowledge and wisdom through our intuition, an inner sense that tells us what feels right and true for us at any given moment.” - Shakti Gawain
