We all have intuition. We all have inner promptings from the still, small voice within us… but not all of us listen to and act upon its urgings. In fact, for many of us, the cacophony of chatter within our minds drowns out the soft-spoken voice of our intuition.
If we were to clear away some of this seemingly incessant inner dialogue would we be better able to access our intuitive nudges? The answer is, of course, yes, but would we actually listen even if we could hear it? Perhaps. It would definitely behoove us to follow the advice of our intuitive voice. You see, this voice has our best interest at heart and makes the path we walk to our gals and desires easier…often much easier. Intuition can open up the road to all manner of good things and grand experiences.
How To Improve Your Intuition
So, how do we go about gaining greater access to our intuition? By stilling the mind and quieting down the voices of our guilt, our worries, or irrational fears, etc. The best way to do this is through the daily practice of meditation. Specifically, meditations to quiet the mind. We have covered the topic of meditation in another post. Here we will just give a brief synopsis of each meditative technique.
Meditation is the practice of sustained focus on one thing or one activity. It is the practice of intense present-moment awareness. This one-pointed focus can be on anything. It is most often on one’s in and out-breath, an object (candle flame or image, for example, a concept, a feeling, a word (either chanted or repeated internally), a sound (either repeatedly emitted vocally, sub-vocally, or internally), or an activity (yoga, or tai chi as moving meditations). Any intense focus on any one activity can be considered (at least loosely) as a type of meditative practice.
