How To Tap Into Your Intuition

So how do you get more intuitive? How do you begin to build that relationship with your inner knowing? 

Building a relationship with yourself is one of the most important things you can do. I hear so many people share how “in their head” they are…constantly thinking in circles and never getting any answers. If we can quiet the conscious mind and tune into our intuition and the information flowing from our higher self, then we can begin to get out of our head and into our heart. 

When we are able to tap into this deeper sense of self, all the answers are there. A sense of calm and clarity comes when we can quiet the constant flow of thought and get in touch with the unconscious mind and our higher conscious mind. I assist people to work with their unconscious mind, consciously. When you are a part of witnessing the calm within the storm and understanding that all the answers are inside of you, it’s empowering! 

So how do you build this relationship with your inner wisdom? Well the good news is it’s always there, even right now. It’s just that you haven’t consciously slowed down enough to hear it. So the process is easier than you might think. 

Step #1: 

Find a comfortable environment where you feel relaxed and safe. It should be a space where you won’t be interrupted. It should also be private enough for you to feel like you can let go and cry or express emotions if they do come up. 

Step #2: 

Sit down in a comfortable position, spine straight. Take 5 deep breathes to ground yourself and get into that moment. 

Step #3: 

Take 5 minutes(or more) to empty your mind about what it is you are seeking clarity on. Let it all out! Let any and all emotions come up. I’ll say it again, because it’s essential. Let any and all emotions come up without judgement. There is nobody around and whatever comes up needs to be let out, so honor that. This in itself is getting you back into your heart space. Write anything and everything that comes to mind. 

Step #4: 

Put in some headphones and listen to binaural beats. YouTube is great for this. I suggest you pick this out before you start this process so it’s ready to go. Listen to the music, spine straight, for at least 5 minutes. Imagine a beam of light entering through the top of your head and all the way down your spine. Each time you breathe in imagine the energy increasing through your body and soak in this gentle, healing light. 

Step #5: 

In this space of relaxation and connection note how you feel and soak in the feeling of love and calm. You can turn off the music or keep it on and simply sit in this space with no intention or expectation. 

Step #6: 

Take a moment to be proud of yourself! You just took time to slow down and reconnect with yourself! This may seem silly but giving yourself a pat on the back will increase your positive associations with this process which makes it more likely you’ll do it again(and again). 

This is a very simple way to just slow down and give yourself space to feel and clear your mind. This is the beginning of your relationship with yourself! Do this as often as you can. The more you do it, the quicker and stronger you’ll build that relationship. But the truth is, you already have a relationship and all the love and wisdom pouring down on you every second….you just have to take the time to tune in.
