Life is easier when we can rely on our intuition to help us make decisions large and small. But how do we learn to trust it? How can we rely on it when sometimes what we hear in our head sounds like it could be wishful thinking?
The saying goes, always follow your first instinct. But is following your first instinct really acknowledging your intuition – or are you just having a desired thought or is fear taking over? Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference. But here’s what it comes down to: intuition is pure, and a desired thought or fear isn’t. Your intuition is the truth of the matter, not an emotionally influenced idea
So how do you tell the difference between a purely intuitive thought and an answer you’re hoping for or fearing? You’ve got to strengthen your intuition, so that it becomes second nature and recognizably trustworthy. Only then will there be no more (or a lot less) second-guessing. But where do you start?
The best way to intensify your intuition is to practice meditation because it enables you to clearly identify your inner voice, which is really what intuition is. Acknowledging and identifying this “voice” when life is challenging can prevent a loss in time, energy or money (just to name a few). Listening to it when things are prosperous can lead to innumerable benefits – like a great job, a wise investment or even the love of your life!
There are many, many methods of meditation (and a little research will fill you in), but concentrative and mindfulness meditation are two great places to begin. Both require that you sit in a quiet, calm manner to simply receive information.
Concentrative meditation requires you to simply focus on your breath, an image, a sound or mantra. This works to still the mind and allow a greater awareness and clarity to emerge. Mindfulness meditation involves becoming aware of images, feelings, sensations and thoughts as they occur without becoming involved in actually thinking about them.
There are lots of classes you can take, books to read or meditaion methods to discover online. Find one that’s right for you. Meditating can even be part of a regular yoga class. Once you start meditating, it will come naturally to you and your ability to detect your own inner truth will become second nature.
By using meditation to strengthen your intuition, you will find that your desired thoughts and reality will begin to fall in line with each other more often. With it comes the power of learning to trust yourself. After all, intuition is merely the truth of the matter. Remember, the truth can be identical to your desires when you align yourself with the universe. What have you got to lose?
