The warm seasons are upon us and you may notice the days getting longer. As the light in your environment expands, so too does the light within yourself.
This is the perfect time to recognize and be mindful of the serenity that external and internal light offer, to trust your inner wisdom and listen to your intuition.
Here are ways to develop your intuition:
As we move into adulthood we often find ourselves listening to societal norms rather than our own intuition. Like anything else in life, the more you practice using your intuition, the easier it will get. Meditation, particularly with a focus on the third eye chakra, helps enhance relaxed awareness and allows us to tune into the intuition that we often push to the side. Meditation is mindful intuitive practice.
Live in the Now
Since our higher selves have no concept of earthly time, our intuition resides in the now. Therefore, if your mind is living in the past or future, it makes it difficult for your intuition to speak to you. When you find your mind wandering from the present, consider the following quote from Lao Tzu: “If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.”
Talk to Your Higher Self
Consider your inner dialogue. Are you mindful of the language you choose when you speak to yourself? Are you sending signals to the universe that express your desires, or are you really expressing your worry around your desires? For example, would you say, “I am always sick” or “I love being healthy”? What you say to yourself, and the way you say it, is an important part of guiding your intuition. Use your inner wisdom and be kind to yourself by re-directing your negative thoughts and turning them into positive ones.
