Connect with intuition in 3 simple and enjoyable ways
We all enjoy it when a hunch or gut feeling pays off. If we learn to connect with intuition, we can all have hunches a lot more often and have some fun with it, too.
Intuition or Inner Guidance
How to connect with intuition in a more meaningful way?
Most of us have gut feelings or hunches from time to time. Can we get more intentional about connecting with our intuition? This would definitely be a useful tool – but where to begin?
Connect with intuition in the body
There are many aspects of our mind, body, and Personal Energy that are involved in the intuitive process.
The easiest place to begin is with our innate intuition. As humans, we all have the ability to feel the back of the neck prickling when we think someone is staring at us.
I have certainly experienced this a lot having a dog! She was a dachshund and they are very good at staring to get attention.
In science, this sense of being stared at is called Directional Scopaesthesia and it was researched by a physician Dr Rupert Sheldrake. He was interested in how this phenomenon affects our theories of human sight.
This means that we can sense other people’s presence without looking at them. This whole-body experience is one way to connect with intuition.
Are Clairs real?
In traditional psychic work, there is a lot of talk about the 8 Clairs (French for ‘clear’). So, clairvoyance translated is ‘clear-seeing’.
The 8 Clairs in short are thought to be: –
- Inner or outer visions – clairvoyance
- Audible thoughts, voices, or ideas – clairaudience
- Feelings that don’t seem to come from our own thoughts – clairsentience
- Knowing – a sudden whole body knowing or gut feel – claircognizance
- Taste – sensing a taste that isn’t present in the mouth physically – clairgustance
- Smells – smelling something that isn’t present physically – clairalience
- Touch – being able to intuit validatable information from touching or holding an object – clairtangency
- Emotion – experiencing emotions which are not our own – clairempathy.
As I’ve spent more time and effort working with my intuition, I’ve noticed that I’m quite strongly clairaudient. It often comes first for me, swiftly followed by clairvoyance.
So again, you can see that a lot of intuitive work relates to using the whole body as an instrument, not just by employing the mind or the third eye.
Human Design and its connection to intuition
In the energy reading system of Human Design, we can discover our innate intuitive skills from active gates and planetary influences in our Human Design Chart.
For example, I have gate 2, the Gate of Receptivity, active in my Self Chakra. This means that as part of my identity, I have access to inner knowledge that can’t be easily explained. To see my Human Design Chart, go to this page and scroll down.
If a person has an open Spleen Chakra like I do, this means that I have an uninterrupted energy source in my body that can scan a room.
I can sense, taste, and feel fears, worries, ideas, and thoughts in the present moment. I am always having to check whether I am feeling my stuff, or someone else’s. It can be really useful, or rather overwhelming, depending upon my level of energy at the time.
There are also energetic aspects in our Human Design Chart called Variables which, when interpreted, can help us to relate to our intuitive skills and abilities.
So you can see that working with an energy measuring system like Human Design can be incredibly useful in giving us answers to how our intuition actually works.
3 simple exercises to connect with intuition for fun
1. The Mail Box/Post Box
Imagine what has arrived in your mailbox or PO Box today.
Is the parcel you’ve been waiting for there? Is the mailbox empty or does it have something inside?
What does ‘fullness’ or ’emptiness’ feel like to you intuitively and how could you apply this knowledge to this exercise?
Perhaps you ‘see’ your mail at a distance, or ‘hear’ a voice telling you about it?
2. The Phone
Who is calling you on the phone or even – who is about to call? Try intuitively sensing who it is each time.
You’ll get better and better at it and probably surprise a few callers with your knowledge. Of course, this involves not looking to see who is calling before you guess.
What fleeting thoughts did you have just before the phone rang? Sometimes the thought can be about a project or subject related to the phone call, rather than the person calling.
3. The three ‘3’s Exercise
Notice the ‘3’s. Did you see 3 butterflies today for example? (I did!).
What does that mean to you intuitively? (To me – with the butterflies – it means that Loved Ones who have passed are thinking of me).
Improve your intuition with readings
When I first started practicing my Akashic Records reading work back in 2010, my first teacher told me that working with our Records can increase intuition.
I can only say that after this many years, she was definitely right.
Connecting with intuition can be increased by connecting with your Akashic Records.
Human Design Readings are also available, you can connect with me here at the client portal to book or ask questions.
I hope you enjoyed this post, and perhaps you will experiment with the 3 exercises. If you get some hits, feel free to comment below.
