Have you had that experience when suddenly you just had this huge hunch that something was about to happen, and to your surprise, that intuition was eventually translated to reality?

7 Keys To Unlocking Your Intuition — Sam Burgess

When you feel strongly about something without a logical basis for it, that’s called intuition. It comes in three main impressions (there are others): clairvoyance or “the third eye”, clairsentience or clear sensing, and clairaudient — feeling through listening.

Clairvoyance is when your eye goes beyond what it can see. This is when you know what is happening somewhere.

We refer to clear sensing as a “hunch” or “gut feel.” This is when you are overwhelmed with a feeling and can’t explain it, and all you can say is, “I just know.”

On the other hand, feeling through listening or clairaudience is being able to “listen” between the lines. Intuition also happens at times when a particular sound, whatever it is, be it a car’s horn or a bird’s tweeting, ushers in an intense feeling.

Many people are gifted with intuition. Astrologers insist that people born under the Scorpio or Pisces signs are naturally intuitive; it almost borders E.S.P. But studies have sprouted left and right, proclaiming that anyone can develop intuition.

Why the need to develop intuition, you ask? Why not let your emotional and psychological state be as it is? First and foremost, intuition promotes good communication. It makes you more sensitive to the people around you; it often keeps you from hurting those you love because you are intuitive enough to understand them. Intuition also makes you far more creative than ever. Intuition means releasing more creative juices for any means of expression. Lastly, intuition has healing power. This healing power is not in the physical sense but in delving deep into your soul to eradicate some negative energy buried in it.

With that being said, are you ready to develop your intuition? Here are some ways to unlock this gift:

1. Hypnosis

Oh yes, get yourself hypnotised. Hypnosis is not limited to watching a pendulum move back and forth. Perform self-hypnosis, or you can take advantage of hypnotic programs that can strengthen your intuition.

2. Meditation

Meditating means finding peace in yourself. If your mind and heart are cluttered with too much baggage and hurt, you wouldn’t be able to quiet down that part of you that could eventually initiate intuition. There are many ways to meditate: take a yoga class or practice breathing exercises.

3. Think positive!

A worry-free, fear-free state could do so much to improve your intuitive ability. By staying positive, you attract good energy that can easily recognise imminent feelings and events.

4. Just let go.

What does this mean? If you are on the brink of making a huge decision, let go of all inhibitions and head to a quiet place where you can find out where letting go has brought you. Sometimes you have to listen to the voice within you, and that voice won’t come out unless you let go.

5. Never expect it.

After letting go of the inhibitions and all those things that stop you from thinking and feeling clearly, never expect an answer immediately. Never expect that the “hunch” would fall on your lap immediately. Give it a little time, and then you’ll be surprised that — wham! — now you have your answer.

6. Believe your first impressions.

When you see someone for the first time and think he is a bit too arrogant for your taste, chances are that impression actually holds true. Most of the time, first impressions are brought by intuition.

7. Stay happy!

See? All you need to be intuitive is to stay happy! Happiness attracts immense power, and such power includes intuition. In tapping your intuition, your motivation must be happiness and contentment. Given that premise, intuition will fall to you quickly.

Intuition is helpful because sometimes it leads you to something that cannot be achieved otherwise. A lot of lives have been saved by intuition alone. Decisions are easier if armed by this gift. Develop intuition now and reap benefits you could have never imagined.
