I believe we all come into this world with an inner knowing. We have either a déjà vu experience or we experience a sudden string of coincidences which make us scratch our heads and wonder what is going on in the universe. More often than not, we totally ignore these opportunities to tap into and grow that inner knowing to help us out in life.
I believe a déjà vu, the feeling that you have been somewhere before, is actually our inner guidance telling us that we are on the right path in life. It is a way for us to know that even though we may not remember what our purpose is we can have a glimpse to remind us that we are making the right choices in our lives. Coincidences are actually more like synchronous events. They are also telling us that we have made the right choices on our journey. The difference is that a synchronous event can also guide us to take the next step in the right direction. It encourages us to pay attention to what is going on so that we don’t miss an opportunity that may be heading our way.
Think of life as a map. We incarnated at our home point. We then plotted our first road trip. Along the way, there are guideposts and markers that help guide us to make left or right turns which are equal to good decisions. Just like your GPS will tell you when you make a wrong turn, sometimes an event will occur in your life to help you change your strategy or direction and make better choices.
A good way to improve your intuition so that you can know when to make these choices is to tune into how your body is feeling. If you feel something deeply in your gut, you have to learn to trust yourself and go with that feeling. The truth is, our brain isn’t the one in charge. Our instincts and intuition are connected to our heart and our gut. When you get out of your head and stop second-guessing your feelings you are on the right track to becoming a more intuitive person and properly using intuitive guidance.
Here are some easy ways to properly use your intuitive guidance system:
First, tune into your body. Learn when a situation feels heavy or light. I make a game out of it. If I have a decision to make, I close my eyes and state it out loud then I imagine the choices. I think about them and tap not into the choice but to whether an option feels heavy or light in my heart and in my gut. We have all had those times when a choice felt heavy. How often have you said that something was weighing heavily on your mind? That is a heavy choice. Heavy is usually not the way you need to go. Instead, focus on the choice or option that feels lighter.
Second, focus with your gut. Some folks will get a gut reaction to a decision that makes them feels like they are sort of saying Uh-Huh or Hmm. It isn’t a sound it is a feeling in your belly really. Or you may get a tingling in your belly; that tingling is your intuition telling you to go with that option. When that tingling is not a pleasant, light feeling or you get no feeling at all that is your intuition telling you that you are on the wrong path or should look at another option.
Finally, listen with your heart. Every choice in life leads us either to a place of love or a place of fear. Put your hand on your heart and say each of these words. You can feel in your heart space the different energy connected to each word. Now place your hand on your heart and focus on the choices you have to make. You will see how one will have the same feeling as the word love did, that is the correct decision to make. The one that feels like the word fear is the choice to stay clear of.
I hope these tips lead you to live a more intuitive life!
