Intuition is a little bit like sexy… We tend to think others have it and we don’t. And yet, it’s right there. With a change in our awareness, we can make that magical feeling part of our personal power. Dedee and I explored how to make our wispy 6th sense more accessible!
This is the small step she offered.
Sit quietly. Close your eyes. Now, focus your attention on your breath while letting go of all doing. Go to a place of calm and invite yourself to practice feeling the difference between Yes and No.
Stay in touch with what you’re feeling in your body as you silently say, “Yes” to something you deeply want. Feel your body’s response. Notice the subtle sensations.
Now feel your body’s response when you silent say, “No” to something you definitely don’t want. Tune into what you’re feeling in your body.
Continue practicing, learning the difference in your body when you full-heartedly say say Yes or No. Really experience it. Get familiar with the unique sensations each of these feelings gives you. When you feel confident, open your eyes.
Your body knows your truth. You can trust it. This is what your intuition feels like. A physical-knowing. The more you listen to this knowing sense, accept it, and give it your attention, the more you will trust it.
Let your body guide you as you practice paying attention to your physical-knowing in situations, or with choices to be made, or when someone tells you something. Your connection with this sense will grow as you let it speak to you. It’s like learning to ride a bike. Over time, you will begin to trust your body’s response. It will become instinctive. You will know your answer is not a thought coming from your mind because you’re listening to a whole body sense, a deep knowing. And that is your intuition.
Small steps can make a big difference.
