What most people don’t want to hear about intuition.
Can you imagine how your life would change if you had a stronger and more reliable intuition? Trusting yourself and your inner compass to make decisions and take the next step in your personal journey is a powerful notion. In my work, I’ve encountered many people seeking answers outside themselves, hoping that someone else holds the key to their life’s mysteries. The problem with searching for answers externally is that we risk losing touch with our inner voice and, consequently, our own intuition. In today’s society, it’s common to live too much outside ourselves, believing that others have better answers or solutions. However, the truth is that the inner voice within us is the answer we’re seeking.
Your intuition lives in the shadows
Contrary to popular belief, strengthening and enhancing our intuition requires an inward turn to confront our inner shadows and demons. Many erroneously assume that positive thinking and spiritual practices alone suffice to create intention and well-being. However, this is not the case. Through my personal journey and experiences with others, I’ve come to realise that the integration and acknowledgment of both the positive and negative aspects of our lives open the doors to a deeper intention.
“Knowing ourselves is the compass that guides us through the uncharted territories of intuition. Only by understanding our own landscape can we navigate the vast terrain of life with clarity and purpose.”
Meditation and mindfulness are powerful tools, but they become even more potent when integrated with our inner work. Taking care of our own demons and negative experiences is a key component in creating a stronger connection to our intuition. By looking inward and examining the things we may have avoided before, we open ourselves up to a deeper understanding of ourselves and our lives.
“When we grant ourselves permission to explore and integrate our inner dimensions, intentions naturally unfold. By confronting our own demons, we can experience an increased sense of connection with the invisible, the subtle, and the spiritual.”
The Inner Game
If you’re striving for deeper intuition and meaningful change in your life, begin the journey inward. Explore your inner life, embrace both the light and the dark, and integrate your experiences to create a stronger connection with your inner compass. By doing so, the possibilities for a richer and more meaningful existence open up. So, grant yourself the permission to go inward and let your inner voice guide you on this deeper journey toward self-understanding and increased intuition.
EXERCISE: Exploring Intuition Through Automatic Writing
Automatic writing is a powerful tool that allows you to access your inner wisdom and receive insights from your subconscious mind. In this exercise, we will begin with a grounding exercise to center ourselves, followed by a focused intention-setting process. Then, you will engage in an automatic writing session to explore the answer to the question, “What do I need to know right now?”
To start, find a quiet and comfortable space where you won’t be disturbed. Sit or lie down, close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths. Feel the connection between your body and the surface beneath you. Imagine roots extending from your body into the earth, anchoring you securely. Visualize a warm, grounding energy flowing up through these roots, enveloping you in a sense of stability and connection.
Setting Your Intention:
As you open your eyes, set a clear intention for this automatic writing session. Ask yourself, “What do I need to know right now?” Focus on this question as you prepare to engage in the process of automatic writing.
Automatic Writing Session:
- Prepare Your Space: Have a notebook or sheets of paper and a pen ready. Choose a comfortable writing position.
- Relax and Breathe: Take a few moments to center yourself. Inhale deeply, exhale slowly, and let go of any tension.
- Ask Your Question Aloud: State your question clearly and audibly: “What do I need to know right now?”
- Clear Your Mind: Close your eyes briefly and let go of any expectations. Allow your mind to become open and receptive.
- Begin Writing: With the question in mind, start writing. Let your hand move freely, without worrying about grammar, structure, or making sense. Write whatever comes to mind, even if it seems unrelated or random.
- Trust the Process: If you encounter resistance or your mind starts to analyze, gently redirect your focus to the question and continue writing.
- Review Your Writing: After a sufficient period, read through what you’ve written. Look for patterns, key phrases, or insights that stand out to you.
Reflect on the automatic writing experience. What messages or insights did you receive? Do any themes or symbols repeat throughout the writing? Trust your intuition as you interpret the words on the page.
This grounding and automatic writing exercise can serve as a powerful tool for tapping into your inner wisdom and enhancing your intuitive connection. Remember to approach the process with an open heart and mind, allowing the messages to unfold naturally.
