Have you ever had an experience, when, someone you know or someone you have not seen in a long time all of a sudden "pops" into your head? Then, a short time later you get a call from this person out of the blue....creepy huh!
Well, not really! This has happened to me, and I’m sure, many others on more than just one occasion.
In fact, when working in my Chiropractic office, my office manager and I use to bet a small wager on who we thought would be calling the office soon after we got that "intuitive connection".
Unfortunately, I find that most people simply discount the fact that events like these take place more often than they are willing to admit. For me, I wanted more. I wanted to explore the finer details that make this work. Is a "gut feeling" just that...a "gut feeling", or is there more to this?
Here’s how I validate my intuitive feelings. OK, I am getting ahead of myself. First, let me provide you with some background on the subject of intuition, here is what I have found to be true.
We are all born with an intuitive sense. Yes, it’s already there! You just have to learn to develop it. I have found that one of the most essential components to developing my intuition is the ability to relax my body and mind at any given point in time. When my body and mind are relaxed, I am much more in tune with my feelings...my "gut feelings".
Keep in mind, you never want to force it. Just let things happen…no preconceived thoughts in mind.
When I am relaxed, I find myself able to better decipher all the inner dialogue that goes on in my head...you know, the stuff you just can't shut off.
"How do I know that I am in touch with my true intuitive feelings and not confusing them with all the other feelings that I am having?" Perhaps, this is a question that you all struggle with...I know that I did for years. Who said that understanding what your body might be trying to tell you is easy work anyway?
Here's what I have found that helps me validate my true intuitive feelings; When I am in touch with my intuition, I get this calm, happy energy that feels as if this energy is expanding beyond my physical body. If it’s not coming from my intuition, I get an anxious, tight energy that feels as if my body is constricting leaving me breathless (exaggerating somewhat). Sometimes these feelings aren’t as noticeable as others. They may be very subtle at times. Over time I have made it a habit to pay more attention to these subtleties. This small effort has helped me tremendously.
So why would I put out any effort to explore my intuitive feelings? Here’s why. Intuition -
• Allows me to make better decisions or choices for myself furthering my personal growth and development.
• Gives me guidance that allows me to successfully reach my goals that are in line with my higher purpose.
• Helps me to avoid any harmful or destructive situations that create setbacks in my life.
• Gives me greater clarity with the questions that I have throughout the day.
• Helps me to experience life in a new fulfilling way.
You to can take advantage of these benefits by discovering the power of your intuition. Read the book by Shakti Gawain…”Developing Intuition: Practical Guidance for Daily Life
.” I found it to be a very helpful guide for following my intuition.
