How To Develop Your Intuition and Develop Your Skills

5 Simple Ways to Hone Your Intuitive Skills and Make Your Intuition Work For You.

Our intuition is with us from the day we’re born. It’s always there, guiding us, helping us, and protecting us as we go through life.

As children, we’re better at tuning into our inherent skills. We’re more open to listening to our inner intuitiveness and acting on them.Then, as we grow into adulthood, we push these instincts aside. We tend to try and conform to social norms.

But the more we do that, the more we lose touch with that special inner knowledge. Then, without even realizing it, we may even stop using it altogether.
If you’re interested in developing your instincts, we’re here to help. Remember, you can strengthen your intuition, just like you strengthen your memory skills or bicep muscles.

Quotes About How To Develop Your Intuition

Tip # 1 How To Develop Your Intuition:

By Pay Attention to Your Energy Levels

Do you know that sick feeling you get when you’re going to a job you can’t stand? Or when you spend a few minutes with someone and you feel drained?

These are all signs that your intuition is telling you something. Rather than going against it, try to be more attuned to these signals.

Tip # 2 How To Develop Your Intuition: 

Listen to Your Gut

Take this one literally. The lining of your gut is covered with a network of neurons.

Known as the enteric nervous system (ENS), this network contains over 100 million neurons. That’s more than the peripheral nervous system and the spinal cord.

This is why you feel sick when you have to make a presentation at work or are faced with a difficult decision.

Yet, listening to your gut feeling and actually following through takes practice.

The next time you have a decision to make, go with the first choice that pops into your mind.

Don’t overthink it.

Tip # 3 How To Develop Your Intuition: 

Listen to Your Inner Thoughts

We’re not talking about the thoughts you get when you don’t know where to buy the black shoes or the red ones. We’re talking about those deep thoughts we usually brush aside because we’re busy doing other things.

This is our intuitiveness trying to send us either encouragement or warnings. Yet, we’re either too busy to listen or  we don’t trust our thoughts enough to follow through.

Tip # 4 How To Develop Your Intuition: 

Listen to All of Your Senses

This also plays a large part in our interactions with people. If you pay close attention to how someone gestures or the tone of their speech, you can pick up on a certain ‘vibe.’

Many times, we get a bad feeling when we meet someone. We usually squash it down because there’s no physical proof. Yet, research now has proof that those weird vibes are your body’s way of reacting to their pheromones.

How exciting is that! So, your senses are working full time, picking up bits and pieces as you go about your day. All you have to do is listen to what your intuition is telling you.

Tip # 5 How To Develop Your Intuition:

Be Present. Be Mindful. Be in the Now

Paying attention to what’s going on around you. Your subconscious brain is busy collecting bits of information throughout the day. The more information you can harness, the better you’ll be at relying on your intuition when it’s time to make informed decisions.

One of the best ways to do that is through mindfulness meditation. All you need is a quiet place and a couple of minutes.

Mindfulness is all about focusing on your thoughts in the present moment. It’s a practice designed to get rid of worrying about the future or missing the past. It’s all about the here and now. Clearing these mental pathways will boost your faith in your intuition listening skills.
