Intuition. You know it’s in there somewhere but it feels like a phone line to Siberia. You want to be able to tap into that infinite wisdom you should have access to but there is so much wavering in your mind when you try.
As children we tend to have a clearer connection to it. When we grow up, we start to doubt and lose touch with it. Because ya know, growing up is hard and can do a number with self doubt, squashing some of our gifts that we came here with. Worry no more though, you can be reunited with a little bit of love, patience and intuition therapy.
Start listening. We never lose our intuition but when we don’t trust it over time, it becomes harder to connect with. If you want to get back in touch, start small. When you think you hear it telling you something, explore that and go with it. Trust builds on itself, so baby step your way back to letting your intuition know that you’re all ears.
Eat clean, whole, phytonutrient dense foods. When we’re full of junk food, processed food, meat, dairy and alcohol it makes us sluggish and foggy headed. Raise your vibration with foods like dark leafy greens, multi-colored veggies (eat the rainbow!), fresh fruits, avocados and fill in the rest with whole grains like brown rice, quinoa (actually a seed), oats and legumes like lentils, lima beans and peas. Make sure to drink plenty of water. Hydration is the answer to so many of life’s problems.
Get your sleep on. Not only is it good for your body and all of it’s systems and organs, it helps to have a clearer mind. When we’re tired it’s harder to trust our inner voice. “Fatigue makes cowards of us all” – Vince Lombardi.
Essential oils. Frankincense, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Cedarwood and Lavender are great for getting you feeling grounded so you can trust your intuition. They are also good for activating the pineal gland in our brain, known as our third eye (it even has rods and cones like our others). This is said to be the where our intuition is seen. High quality essential oils will be much more effective.
Meditate. Quieting, centering and focusing your mind at least once a day can give you a direct link to your higher, wiser self. It’s hard to hear with all of the noise that goes on in our daily lives. Putting crystals around you or on your body during meditation can increase results. There are many that will work like amethyst, clear quartz, iolite, sodalite and celestite to name a few. Use your intuition to chose. Whatever you pick is the right one for you!
