As humans, we often go through challenges or seasons of uncertainty. These times can leave us lost, confused, or anxious – which often throws us off balance or causes us to feel out of touch with our intuition. It’s true that life would be easier if we had the answers to all of our questions or challenges, but if that were the case, we would never grow or learn to lean into our intuition. If you are worried, stressed, or uncertain about decisions, future events, or life questions, learning how to trust your intuition can help you understand who you are and why you are here.
When you start on your journey to trusting your intuition, it might be difficult at first – that’s perfectly normal and okay. It takes strength and bravery to lean into that part of yourself, so if you are having a hard time, don’t get discouraged. Strengthening your intuition is a lifelong journey that can lead you to finding your true self.
If you desire to strengthen your intuition but you need some tips to get started, I have compiled a list of things you can do to start working toward your goal. As you implement these tips into your daily life, you will be able to unlock new possibilities and find your true purpose.
1. Learn About Intuition
Learning as much as you can about intuition can help you understand how to strengthen your own. There are multiple books, podcasts, and courses you can consume to learn about tuning into your intuition and letting it improve your life. If you’re not exactly sure where to start, do some research and simply learn. This will set you on a path in the right direction.
2. Spend Time Outside
Spending time in nature is a great way to connect with yourself and even a higher power. Being outside gives you the chance to clear your mind and tune out the voices of the world around you – which ultimately gives your inner voice the chance to speak loudest. Try to get outside for at least a few minutes each day to simply be one with yourself and with nature.
Meditation is a key to strengthening your intuition. When you have a few moments a day to sit in silence, you will be able to align with your intuition and find out the answers to your life questions. Your intuition will always steer you in the right direction, and practicing meditation will allow you to be able to feel it more frequently and clearly.
Writing is a great way to bring your inner feelings to the surface so you can find out what you truly need. When you have certain feelings, thoughts, or “hunches,” write them down. You will be surprised by what you are able to put on paper, and it can help you make future decisions based on your original intuition rather than fear.
5. Pay Attention to Feelings
If you have a feeling something isn’t right, you get strange vibrations from someone, or you have a bad feeling about something, don’t ignore it. Your intuition is typically right, and when you notice those thoughts and feelings, you can pay attention and find out whether they are right or wrong. This is a great way to learn to trust your intuition.
6. Do Something Creative
Being creative often brings out our inner child, so do something that makes you use that creative side of your mind. Whether you love painting, ceramics, DIY, writing, singing, or other activities, getting creative will help your intuition flow freely.
When you start to notice your intuition, the most important thing you can do is act on your feelings. If your intuition is pulling you a certain way, don’t go against it. A major part of trusting your intuition is acting on it, and when you do, your intuition strength will steadily increase. It can seem scary at times, especially when your mind and intuition are in conflict, but following your intuition will lead you where you need to be.
When you take these steps to strengthen your intuition, you will find that you are better balanced in every aspect of your life. It’s never too late to learn how to use your intuition to improve yourself no matter where you are in life’s journey.
