Intuition is the supra-logic that cuts out all the routine processes of thought and leaps straight from the problem to the answer. – Robert Graves
Learning to trust and use your intuition in decision making can be a game changer for you. When you begin to learn to trust that small still voice, that gut feeling, that little nudge you feel from deep within, you truly can learn to leap straight from the problem to the answer.
The reality is that you actually do have all of your answers inside of you. You just have been taught not to look there for the answers. If you are like me, you were taught to look outside of yourself. Ask the “experts” or research the answer. Or write out lists of pros and cons or talk to everyone else about the problem until you are so confused you don’t know which way to turn.
I’ve spent a lot of time learning to trust my intuition, and now I spend a lot of time teaching others how to trust theirs. For many people, the first step is even allowing their intuition to have a voice. There are a lot of ways to go about accessing your intuition. Sometimes we’ve cut that voice off so much or stuffed it down so deeply that it is barely a whisper… for some people it has literally gone mute. So the first thing to learn is that everyone has an intuitive voice and it’s okay to let it speak!
Once you’ve gotten through that first step, of even acknowledging and allowing your intuitive voice to be heard, the second step is actually listening to the message.
I think this is the hardest part for a lot of people. Our intuition may kind of speak a different language than we are used to. Intuition can be a whisper, a voice in your head, or it can be a feeling or a knowing. It can present itself outwardly through signs and symbols. The important thing is to start listening and learning how your intuition communicates to you.
Once you’ve started listening, the next step is in learning to trust your intuition. This can be very difficult for some people. I teach a number of ways to go about this, from learning ways to verify the information you are getting to tracking your hunches, and the use of tools that help you to really be able to feel confident in trusting the information your intuition gives you.
I know it is difficult sometimes to really live by your intuition. I mean, if your intuition tells you to go right instead of left, and you go left and have an accident, well, you probably will say to yourself “I should have trusted my intuition!” But if you go right and nothing happens, you may never even think about it again. So your brain doesn’t register that listening to your intuition paid off! I think a simple way to start paying validating your intuition is to just simply keep a journal. Start tracking your intuitive hunches, what you did with them and what the result was (even if the result was that nothing happened!).
Whatever else you do, I really recommend you find the ways that work for you to begin to truly tap into your intuition. Once you begin to recognize when your intuition is speaking, and then when you follow your intuition, you will find life gets a lot easier for you, and much of the time you absolutely can make that leap right away from problem to solution!
