Einstein once said “ the intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind its faithful servant”. However, our society value way too much logical thinking and devalue the importance of intuition. It is one of the examples in modern society of overvaluing the masculine energy over the feminine energy.
Everything existing on Mother Earth have both masculine and feminine energies in them. When these two energies within us are balanced, we live healthy and happy, otherwise, discomfort or illness might occur. I will speak to more on this topic later.
Intuition is a sense of inner knowing. In the psychic world, lightworkers call this ability the "clairs". There are many different types of intuitive senses. The most common one is Clairvoyance which means clear seeing. Generally, our clairvoyance will manifest when we can see through our mind's eye or through visions. You don't have to physically see something in the flesh or real life to be clairvoyant. People possess this intuitive sense typically use languages like " I really see what you mean", or "I can really get a vision of where you are going with that".
Claircogizance is clear knowing, the intuition comes through a certain knowing that something is happening or is going to happen. Creative concepts and ideas often come through claircognizance--one second before there was no idea, the next second a whole concept is developed. You can't just explain how you know what you just do.
Clairsentience means clear feeling. Most empaths and artists have this intuitive sense. People who are highly sensitive can pick up other people's emotions fast.
There are other intuitive senses like Clairaudience is clear hearing. Clairtangency is clear touching--in person crystal healing, massage, reiki therapists most likely have this ability. Clairsalience is clear smelling--aromatherapy is based on this ability; and clairgustance which is clear tasting.
There are many ways to cultivate intuition. I found the most helpful way is to have a non-negotiable spiritual practice routine everyday. I’ve been meditating everyday for 20-30 minutes a day since 2012. The more I practice it, my intuition comes stronger. Intuition doesn’t make sense, it takes courage to listen to it. Sometimes it is a phase, sometimes a visual, sometimes a voice, sometimes it is a feeling, and sometimes you just know. It is not some God-sounded voice telling you what to do. That’s why you need to be calm and present to hear it. Meditation is a great way to get us to be here and now. Mindfulness practices and spiritual rituals work well too.
The App I use for guided meditation is Chopra App. It happens now Deepak is now collaborating with Alicia Keys on the meditation guidance to embrace the Divine Feminine.
Another way I found it helpful is to move our body freely, or better yet, dance it out. It is not a dance according to certain choreography or looking pretty, it is to let your body dance freely as what it wants to do. Put on some music you are connected to and let your body move, then journal what you have in your mind.
Lastly, changing up my routine is also helpful. That’s a way for me to keep my creative juices flowing if I get a creative block too. Try something new, shake things up and see what surprises you?
Another great exercise to do is to journal about these question:
If money and time are not an issue, what would you like to do? How would you spend your day? Write it down, draw it out, make a vision board out of it.
Try them out and let me know if any of these tips help you becoming more intuitive-like you just know it and make decisions fast because you trust your gut and not necessarily a large amount of data analysis.
