Wondering how you can connect with your intuition to not only improve your life, but your business as well? Then you’re in the right place!
There are seven simple steps that you can start incorporating into your daily life that will help you tune into the guidance your intuition is trying to send your way.
7 Steps to Connect With Your Intuition
So, why might you want to take steps to connect with your intuition? Well, it can actually be very beneficial as a business owner! By tuning into your intuition, you can tap into guidance regarding big decisions or the next step you need to take.
Here’s how to get started:
1. Just Pause & Listen
This is the first (and most important) step that you need to know. Your intuition could be trying to send you an important message right now, but you need to make sure you’re actually tuned in if you want to receive it.
You see, our minds are constantly racing with thoughts about so many different things. And if we don’t take the time to just pause, quiet the mind, and listen to what our intuition has to say, we’ll miss out.
Simply having a few minutes of quiet time in the morning can make a big difference. But there are other things you can do as well, which you’ll learn in this post.
2. Notice Feelings That Pop Up
You know those gut feelings you get from time to time where you’re being urged to do (or not do) something? That’s your intuition trying to get in touch with you. Pay close attention to those feelings and what message it may be sending you.
There are also other physical responses to be on the lookout for. Besides that gut feeling, you might notice goosebumps on the skin, a shiver down your spine, or your heart might start racing.
The more in tune you are with your body, the more you’ll begin to notice even the most subtle of shifts when your intuition is trying to talk to you.
3. Meditate Regularly
One great way to have the quiet time needed to connect with your intuition is meditation. Taking just a few minutes to meditate either in the morning or in the evening can make a huge difference.
There are plenty of great meditations on YouTube or you can use an app to provide soothing music. Before you begin, you can ask a specific question that you want an answer to or you can just begin meditating and trust the right message will be delivered.
4. Use Journaling to Get Your Thoughts on Paper
Journaling is another great tactic because you can just let all of your thoughts and feelings flow out onto paper. Although my favorite way to journal is a technique called scripting (which helps you to manifest your desires), I also love to just ask for guidance and write down whatever comes up. Super simple, but it works!
Plus, having everything written down, allows you to easily sort through your thoughts and determine how to best take action on the messages you receive.
5. Spend Time Outside
One of the best things you can do for your mind and body is to spend time outside. That’s why it’s an essential step in helping you connect with your intuition. Being outside gives you such a grounded feeling. And it encourages you to recognize all the beauty that surrounds us each day.
It’s also the perfect opportunity to quiet the mind and open yourself up to receiving guidance from a higher source.
Get some fresh air and vitamin D whenever you can. Your outdoor time could include going for walks, having a morning journaling session on your deck, or enjoying a sunset dinner outside. Whatever you want!
And if you’re short on time, you can just kick off your shoes and walk around your yard. Feel Mother Nature beneath your feet. It’s sure to transport you to a childhood full of wonder and imagination.
6. Use Tarot Cards or Crystals In Your Daily Life
There’s no shame in using a few tools to help you better connect with your intuition in your everyday life. And two things that can really assist you with this are tarot or oracle cards, as well as crystals.
Personally, I love pulling a tarot card every day. Not only does it help me strengthen my tarot skills, but it also provides guidance and it allows me to tap into my true feelings. The Wild Unknown Tarot Deck is my absolute favorite.
And you can start building your collection of intuition-boosting crystals. Some great ones to have are clear quartz, amethyst, moss agate, and labradorite. Try meditating with the crystal of your choice placed directly over your third eye chakra. Do this every day for about a week with the same crystal and you should see improvement.
7. Take Action on the Messages You Receive
And finally, when you do receive a message from your intuition, make sure you act on it. After all, the Universe rewards those who actually take action and make progress toward achieving their goals. Your intuition is the same.
Acting on the messages you receive will allow you to more effectively connect with your intuition and open you up to more guidance in the future.
