Developing Your Intuition
Listening To Your Inner Voice

www.DailyOm.com

We all have an inner guide that leads us through life, helping us to make decisions and serving as a compass to our higher nature. Intuition involves listening deeply to oneself to arrive at knowledge without strictly relying on pure reason or logic. But sometimes this inner voice can be dulled by the “noise” of our conscious thoughts. Intuition can be re-ignited through awareness exercises, meditation, and other methods. But the most essential tool to developing intuition is trust in oneself.

To strengthen the bridge between your conscious and unconscious mind, try some of these exercises – again, remember that trusting what rises to the surface on its own is valuable; second-guessing yourself will undermine the power of your personal intuition.

* Cultivate your people-watching abilities: When out in public, observe other people. Imagine how they are feeling and what they are thinking.

* Practice predictions: Who is calling on the telephone? What will be the next song on the radio? Which horse will win the race?

* Keep a journal of your observations: Try not to have any expectations and do not judge yourself on the accuracy of your predictions. Just witness the process. If nothing comes up, just doodle or write “nothing” until something surfaces. Try writing with your non-dominant hand

* Become aware of how you best receive intuitive information: Test this by asking yourself easy “yes or no” questions and tune into the source of the answer – is it from the gut or the heart, a voice in your ear, a vision in your mind’s eye?

* Practice mindfulness: This is known in some meditation practices as shamata or vipassana. But even without formal meditation practice you can develop your sense of existing fully “in the moment”. Without this quieting of your mind, you will not have the space for your intuition to blossom.

* Play games: Old-fashioned matching games can help bring intuition to the surface (“What card will come up next?”), and new computer technology can allow your mind to follow intuitive paths in novel ways. For example a stroll through the Garden of Dreams, created by the Institute for Noetic Sciences, will test your intuitive abilities in real time.

Ignite your Mind…The Human Guidance System (HGS): Your Inner Healer

Out of all the technological advances in the past few years, the one that thrills us the most is the GPS system. Plug in any destination and the GPS unit gives you turn-by-turn instructions to get you there safely. If you stray off course, a calming voice kindly guides you back to the right path.

Brilliant!

You, as a human being, have the same system deep inside you. It’s called the Human Guidance System, or HGS. It’s our inner compass and it also gives you turn-by-turn instructions to your destination (your goal). It also kindly guides you back on course if you should ever stray.

The majority of us aren’t tuned into our HGS. We don’t hear the kind voice that offers turn-by-turn directions. We don’t tap into the power or the wisdom that can guide us to our destiny. Instead, we rely on happenstance and stumble through life, never really knowing if we’re on the right path.

Studies by the top universities in the world have suggested that people who are in touch with their HGS experience more peace, satisfaction, joy and success. In all our work with clients, we have seen that paying attention and listening to your HGS is the single most important factor in success.

Your HGS is there for a reason. It’s time to tap into its power.

How the HGS works

The conscious mind thinks a thought, emotionalizes that thought and sends it to the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind, using the RAS, triggers the HGS. The HGS, in turn, sends out signals like radio waves to the Universe, transmitting messages and attracting everything that validates the original thought.

Your HGS does not shout. Instead, it prefers to be quiet. It speaks to you in whispers. (The only time your HGS will let itself be known in a big way is if you’re in danger. Then, your HGS will shout and will do anything to get your attention.)

It is consistently giving you signs along your journey. You can feel its guidance in your body.  It’s a feeling of peace or calm in your body or “gut” (below your breast bone). For negative experiences, you’ll feel a gnawing or a general uneasiness.

Practice makes perfect. The more you use your HGS, the easier it is to recognize when it’s speaking to you. You’ll be tuned-in and will immediately recognize the signs the Universe sends you. The more you recognize, the more the Universe sends.

Unlike the Backseat Drivers in your life, the HGS does not try to convince you of anything. It’s infinitely patient, always kind and waits until you’re ready to move forward before it puts the next step in your path. Your HGS doesn’t judge and is always working in your best interest.

Your HGS knows what is best for you and what you are ready for. Your HGS cannot be persuaded or convinced that your way is the better way, and it knows what it will take to prepare you and ready you in order to reach your goal, dream or desire.

Growth spurts: Every person walking the planet has had uncertain times. Recall a time in your life when you thought that you were going the wrong way, but went through the pain and growth anyways. After looking back on it, can you see why you had to go through the experience? (The HGS does not do things to you, but does things for you. Even the hard things you experience are meant to help you.)

You may be led to situations that feel right to you, but don’t make logical sense. Trust your HGS and follow its guidance. Ask your HGS if there’s a lesson, and, if so, what can you learn? Is it to strengthen your character, develop a new life skill or meet a new person who is important for the next step in your journey?

The HGS is designed to help you learn, grow and open new doors of opportunity for you. (That’s why it’s important that you Defrost your Rearview Mirror at times. You can see where you were, why you had to learn the lesson and why you did what you had to do.)  So often, we try to set goals that bypass the necessary experiences. Those experiences are needed for you to ultimately become the person you’re meant to be.

Plug in your coordinates: Your HGS will give you turn-by-turn instructions the minute you plug in your coordinates and your goal. Tell your HGS where you want to go. Then sit back and listen. Without a goal, your HGS is on autopilot and your life will be run by happenstance instead of purpose.

You can choose to live your life on autopilot or you can live your life on purpose.

You have a choice.
