Intuitive guidance can make life much easier… but what exactly is it?
Intuition is your internal compass; a built-in GPS that can help you navigate through life!
Trusting in this guidance is much easier when you understand what these sixth sensory feelings are for.
What is Intuitive Guidance?
“The only real valuable thing is intuition.” – Albert Einstein
Reading the awesome quote above, it sure seems like Einstein knew a thing or two about intuition.
So, what is intuition? A hunch? A sixth sense?
Yes and yes!
Intuition is an internal guidance system that each and every one of us has. It’s the way in which your soul (also called your Higher Self or Inner Being) communicates with you.
Why Do We Need Intuition?
You see, when we were born into our physical bodies, our spiritual helpers (Spirit Guides, Ascended Masters, angels, etc.) agreed to help support us through our human experience.
It would be amazing if we could call our Higher Self and divine helpers on the telephone, but since we can’t, they connect and guide us through our intuition.
Intuitive guidance can come to you in lots of different ways, such as:
- gut feelings
- that little voice inside
- a feeling of knowing something with certainty (like you need to take your dog to the vet)
Intuitive guidance can help with everything from deciding what to outfit to wear, to deciding if you should move across country. No job is too big or small for your intuition!
Best of all, once you learn to listen to your intuition, you begin living with:
- more clarity
- less stress
- more happiness
And because intuition comes from your soul and spiritual team, it always guides you for your best good.
You can always count on this trusted team of spiritual advisors!
Does Everyone Have Intuition?
Intuition is a completely natural part of us (and different from psychic ability which I’ll explain below). In fact, it’s our birthright, and we all have it — even animals!
Actually, we could learn a lot from our furry friends!
For example, have you ever noticed how your pet trusts his intuition? How he will lick the face of your best friend, but growl at the new person you’re dating?
That’s because they trust their sixth sense “vibes” and react immediately.
They don’t overthink what they feel, or override their intuition with logic the way humans do.
Instead, they honor their intuitive feelings.
Intuitive Guidance Examples
- My daughter was having some challenges due to a learning disability. Since I homeschool, I was starting to feel really stressed. I read everything about what we should be doing to help her, but nothing FELT right. I had a strong urge that kept telling me, just do what you think is right. Weeks later, a psychologist recommended to me, based on her educational testing, the EXACT books I had started using with EXACT instruction on how I had been using them!
- My husband was driving home once with some other people from work. Suddenly, he had a strong urge to buckle up and told the other passengers to buckle up quick. Minutes later, they were in a serious accident. I believe that intuitive message saved their lives. (And I gave him a piece of my mind about not being buckled up in the first place!)
You can receive and ask for intuitive guidance on anything. With practice, you’ll learn to trust and rely on your intuition as much as your five physical senses!
Psychic Ability vs. Intuition
Many people use the terms psychic and intuition interchangeably. I swap the words sometimes, too. But since we’re talking about intuitive guidance today, I thought it was important to mention this quick point:
- Psychic ability is the ability to tap into the unseen world around us; the ability to perceive subtle energies, auras, Spirit energy, etc. Everyone has intuition, but not everyone is psychic. That said, pretty much anyone can develop at least some degree of psychic ability. Why not? We’re all spiritual beings.
Bottom line: Use the KISS philosophy – Keep It Super Simple. Enjoy intuitive guidance and have fun with it. That’s more important than anything else. You’ll understand it more as you practice using it.
3 Ways to Ask for Intuitive Guidance
Many people forget that they are spiritual beings. They are present in their physical lives but forget about their sixth sensory feelings, and that’s as sad as eating a cupcake with no frosting.
But since you’re here, I’m pretty sure that you realize that you are a spiritual being first and foremost.
All we need to do now is tune you up a bit so that you can start using intuitive guidance.
Sounds simple, doesn’t it? Honestly, you’d be surprised how many people wonder why they aren’t receiving intuitive guidance, but never ask for it.
So, start making a habit of asking for help with anything and everything, then, take notice of what feelings or signs you get!
2. Raise Your Vibration
Raising your vibration helps you feel more joyful and connected to your Higher Self.
Plus, it’s easy to raise your vibe!
Anything that makes you feel happy raises your vibration: Music, art, dancing, relaxing on a beach, woodworking, etc.
Meditation raises your vibration and quiets your mind so you can receive the intuitive guidance being given to you.
It’s hard to hear your Authentic Self and spiritual team when your mind is full of ego-based thoughts. Meditation pushes all those thoughts aside and allows room for spirit.
How to master intuitive guidance
Do you think if you made gluten-free French toast every day for a year you’d get pretty good at it? I’d say you’d be a ding-dong great gluten-free French toast maker!
Do you think if you started practicing receiving intuitive guidance every day for a year, you’d get good at it? I definitely think so!
Don’t get frustrated when you first start asking for intuitive guidance. Like Dory did in Finding Nemo, just keep swimming. You might feel like you are muddling around at first. But in time, the guidance will become easier and clearer.
