Intuition can be described as comprehending something without the need for conscious deliberation. It entails receiving an immediate sense of what actions to take or avoid, without any conscious reasoning guiding your choices. You possess an innate knowledge of whether your current course of action is correct or incorrect.

Here are some tips for accessing and utilizing your intuition effectively in order to make informed decisions that yield favorable outcomes.

1. Trust Your Gut Feelings

Intuition comes from your learned experiences and who you are as a unique individual. It's what creates those things we call instincts or hunches. One way to tap into this guiding source is to stop questioning your gut feelings. Go with them, and right or wrong, they improve the quality of your intuition in the future.

2. Celebrate Your Intuitive Successes

You are more likely to repeat something if you recognize it as successful. Celebrate when you trust your gut feelings, and everything turns out right. This will give you more confidence in your intuition in the future.

3. Ask Yourself Who, What, Where, When and Why

When, where, who, what, how question cards

Where is the destination of a person you see driving down the street? Why do some people succeed when it appears they're going to fail? When is the next time the stock market will explode, positively or negatively? Asking yourself questions that need clear answers triggers your intuitive instincts.

4. Let Go of the Need for a Rational Explanation

Have confidence in your instincts. That inner voice is attempting to convey a message to you. It's not always necessary to understand why you possess certain knowledge or feel compelled to act in a particular manner. Intuition has a mysterious quality, and if you seek a logical explanation to justify your intuitive feeling, you may end up making a mistake. At times, you simply have an innate understanding. Trust it.

5. Record Your Hunches

Make sure to pay attention to your instincts and gut feelings. It's important to do this regardless of whether you act on them or not. Afterward, document the outcomes you experience from both following your intuition and ignoring it. This practice can provide you with solid proof that your intuition is attempting to lead you on the correct path. By keeping track of these intuitive feelings, you'll have tangible evidence of the guidance they offer.

6. Limit Distractions so You Hear Your Intuition When It Speaks

Today, we are constantly connected, plugged in, and distracted. This constant flood of information, audio and video, and marketing messages means your intuition might be screaming at you to get your attention, but you don't notice. Fewer distractions, including physical and visual clutter, make it easier to follow your instincts.

7. Be in the Present Moment

Allow your mind to become clear and free from distractions. By doing so, you create the ideal environment for your intuition to communicate with you. If there are any messages or insights that your intuition wants to share, it is during these moments of presence that it will speak up and make itself heard.

Embracing the present moment is a powerful way to strengthen your intuitive abilities and gain deeper insight into yourself and the world around you.

8. Monitor Your Body Language


Your body has a natural inclination to reflect your internal emotions without conscious effort. This process occurs automatically and subconsciously. For instance, if you find yourself crossing your arms, furrowing your brows, and leaning back while someone presents a business proposition, your body is sending a message that it may be wise to decline the opportunity. This nonverbal communication serves as a powerful indicator of your inner feelings and can guide your decision-making process.

By paying attention to these physical cues, you can gain valuable insights into your instincts and make choices that align with your true desires. Trusting your body's response can lead to more authentic and fulfilling experiences in both personal and professional realms. Remember, your body has a way of revealing what words alone cannot express. Listen to its wisdom and let it guide you toward the path that feels right for you.

9. Flip a Coin and Ask Yourself How You Feel


When you toss a coin, it presents you with two options: heads or tails. As the coin spins through the air, you may find yourself secretly wishing for either heads or tails to appear. Deep down, your intuition guided you, regardless of the final result.

Regardless of the outcome, the act of tossing a coin is often seen as a symbolic representation of decision-making. It reminds us that sometimes we have to rely on our instincts and trust that they will lead us in the right direction. So, next time you find yourself faced with a difficult choice, remember the humble coin and the power it holds to guide us.

1. Start trusting your intuitive feelings. You can't tap into your intuition if you don't trust it. The more you do this, the stronger and more accurate your gut feelings become.

2. Cut needless distractions out of your life. Spend less time staring at your phone, TV set, or computer screen. Avoid needless sensory input that adds no real value to your life.

3. Stop requiring a rational explanation for your feelings. They are what they are. You don't always have to explain why you feel a certain way for your instincts to be correct.
