A few days ago, I begun to start using my intuition on a more deliberate basis. I've had feelings of love before (for many years) but after a recent insomniac episode, decided to make a conscious attempt at trying to use it.
The results have been quite surprising.
You see, we all know that Intuition has many benefits, and yet it is an art to try to master. I say this with a sigh as intuition has sadly been knocked out of many adults. And yet, we have all had a gut feeling of something, or have witnessed Déjà vu, so to say that there is no sixth sense, or that psychic ability is a load of New-Age BS, is quite simply inaccurate.
Applied intuition is using this feeling on a more deliberate basis, so you can have a more better life, make better decisions and ultimately, make life work for you rather than against you.
You essentially learn to not only embrace your super-conscious (or your soul) but also learn to not only live with it, but also use it.
And that's fine, there is nothing wrong in using your soul (in fact, you soul would have it no other way, due to the, ‘oneness principal'). So how do you become intuitive deliberately, so that you can use it to make life better?
I can only describe what has worked for me. As I'm just consciously starting out, I'm still relatively new, but am convinced that I'm on the right track. If you wish to join me, that's great. If you wish to just keep track, I'll try to keep updating these posts so that you know of my progress.
Now, I'm going to be honest up here, and say straight away that I'm a highly sensitive person, who meditates frequently.
This means that feelings by default are always multiplied, so having a feeling isn't something I'm going to miss that easily. Secondly, I have bought and meditated using The ARVARI CD's, as well as the power-nap MP3 of Unexplainablestore.com.
I want to be honest with you, in the sense that I have achieved essentially the Theta brainwave state while feeling love (If you wish to find a way to open up your Heart chakra so you know how to feel unconditional love, click here).
This has allowed me to receive intuition more easily, all by simply asking myself a question (when my mind chatter is pretty much reduced, this post on mindfulness will help you do that) and waiting for a loving feeling to come to my heart.
If it is a dull loving feeling, I should probably not take the action that I asked myself. If it is a very strong loving feeling, I should really take the action I asked myself as soon as possible.
I say this, because I believe that for you to be intuitive, and then to use your intuition on a deliberate basis, you have to meditate to a degree when your brain is at the Theta brainwave state, and that you are used to feeling love at these deep moments of your meditation practice, and then learn to trust that feeling.
I know some of you who can easily say that you get intuitive insights in the Alpha range, and that deep meditation is simply not required. If that works for you, then fair enough. But for me, I believe Theta meditation with love works best (maybe it's due to an over-active EGO, I'm not sure).
I've began to use deliberate intuition in the last few days, in different situations and have noticed the following outcomes:
Intuition in the workplace
I'm beginning to use intuition in the workplace (taken me a long time to reach this point). Its funny, but when I use my hidden feelings to sort out work and tasks to do, I find that the tasks that I feel good about are pretty simple to accomplish. It's almost like my soul is trying deliberately to make life easy for me.
Not only that, but I can also sense when the task could be a tough task, taking over 10 minutes to complete, or when it may be a short simple task, taking just a few minutes. Tapping into my intuition has opened up a whole new world of possibilities, making life, even in the dull workplace, slightly more fun.
On top of that, it also helps keep the stress and the nerves at bay, and helps me re-connect (at times) to the present moment. This of course helps me focus and concentrate better. And all of the while, I feel at peace within myself, so when a inevitable stressful situation arises, it doesn't take me out so much.
The only thing I would say, is that I still fantasize when something that bores me comes up, so of course the stress (if it does kick in) can be slightly overwhelming.
I regularly go outside and do sprints up a hill.
It's not only great fun, but extremely healthy as well. Sprinting is a form of H.I.I.T (High-Intensity Interval Training). HIIT is great for stress reduction, and as a result, can be a good tool to help reduce panic attacks and anxiety.
Not only that, but sprinting helps release Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone when you sleep. These are valuable hormones which help promote muscle and repair body cells and helps you feeling refreshed.
The thing with my sprinting, is that I have to use the road. It's not a major one, but I can still get some traffic on it. I use my intuition to help warn me if there are any cars or vehicles come (especially when I do the initial training drills, which is a must for any sprinter). By relying on my intuition, I am able to do my drills, pretty safe in the knowledge that a car isn't going to suddenly run me over.
Intuition in the home
I recently tried to apply my deliberate intuition while I was at home. It wasn't much, but by asking a simple question and waiting for a strong feeling, I ended up doing a little bit of housework (and I'm not even housework fan).
The thing was, even though it took about 30 minutes, my house looked a little bit tidier, and when I rewarded myself by playing a game (I try to live by the motto, ‘work hard, play hard' routine 😉 I found that I was winning more simply, and it was more fun. Again, it could be an indication of my soul in rewarding me in using my intuition on a more deliberate basis.
Since using my intuition, my EGO fear, which can sometimes make my OCD go into hyper-drive, has significantly been reduced, and I feel more love and peace on a daily basis. Not only that, but small events are working towards my favor, than against me.
And it must be said, using deliberate intuition can be very spontaneous, which allows life to be lived in the present moment and can be more fun. Try using intuition yourself, and learn to trust the feelings of love when they come to you. You should find that being present becomes more fun, as you seek to listen to the soul within, and life will begin to work in your favor.
