We've all experienced it: That feeling in your solar plexus pushing you to do--or not do--something without a logical reason. It's what drives you to take a different route home or to accept the date with the soul mate who turns out to be the right one.
Whilst it may seem like a supernatural force, scientists are discovering that intuition is actually an expert way of thinking.
"It's learned expertise--something we might not even be aware we had—that is instantly accessible," David Myers, Ph.D., a social psychologist You can discover how to trust your intuition, choose your ‘destiny’ and start living a more rewarding life.
Firefighters seem to know when to get out of a burning building as if they
have a sixth sense. "Your subconscious spots anomalies." Firemen are constantly
going through an internal checklist. As soon as something feels ‘off’ they know to get out.
Start to focus your attention on places you’re used to or know very well like your office or home or neighbourhood area. As your mind to find 3 things in each
that you've not noticed before. By doing this it will help train you to become aware of changes or irregularities. Use this information to make a decision.
Example, you look at your living room and notice for the first time an electric cord frayed or looking old, you replace it. By training yourself to look for anything ‘different’ in your environment you’ll be increasing your intuition.
To increase your intuition, you need practice clear focussed attention to what people and your environment are telling you. The more information you take in,
the more you have to draw from when it comes time to make an important decision.
Let’s be honest
Ask. "How often do I cut people off? Am I often trying to get my point across rather
than listening?" Do I second guess what people are going to say before they do and if it doesn’t match, I’ve switched off? If this is the case, maintain eye contact
with the person speaking to you. It’s been found we’re far less likely to interrupt someone we’re looking at. You can also do this if you give sessions on line. Simply use your sixth sense to focus or stare at the screen whilst listening. This will help you really hear everything that is said. Overtime it will help you pick up on things people don’t say.
Highly intuitive people may seem like mind readers, but the truth is, they're good at guessing what people around them are thinking--largely because they're adept at receiving the energy or non - verbal signals.
I know, it’s been banded around for what seems like an age, ‘’getting out of your comfort zone’’. It’s been said so many times across the self-development platforms that occasionally, I become immune to it or switch my attention. When you take a risk, you become proactive rather than reactive. In terms of a successful divine life purpose it increases your odds for good things to happen.
When we keep doing the same things, nice as that structure is, we get the same results and it’s difficult to expand. If being an intuitive person and acting purely on instinct is risky for you, take that step. What most people don’t acknowledge is if they’re able to step out of their programming, personality, ego self, their intuition is spot on.
In a University study, experienced chess players did as well playing a
fast version of the game as they did playing it the traditional slow and thoughtful way.
The chess players didn't mull over decisions to win.
Back to our fire men, If they stopped to second-guess themselves, the results could be lethal. Research shows that when it comes to things you do all the time, stopping
and thinking can actually increase your error rate by up to 30 percent.
Practice taking action on gut instinct.
Re you think of someone or something to do, take action, call , text or e mail that person.
Scientists are discovering that when you’re looking for insight, taking a break from what you're doing can be the best approach.
If it’s not fun, nothing can be won!
Doing something fun can give your brain space for insight.
Anything that steers your thoughts away from daily stresses and old habits will help clear your brain of clutter. Allow yourself to free-associate, don't be surprised if the insight you gain leads to a result you never dreamed possible.
