Develop your intuitionLife is full of decisions and forks in the road. It can be confusing sometimes when we try to figure out exactly where we are headed, where we would like to be and how to get there. For some people, these leads to limited lives. This likely happens because people become so fearful of making the wrong decisions or choosing the wrong path that they choose to settle instead.

If we want to unlock the full potential of our lives, we need to be able to push ourselves and go outside of our comfort zones. While this may seem like a daunting task, with the right approach it is more than achievable. A good place to start is developing our intuition…

So, what exactly is our intuition?

Our intuition is basically a personal guide that does everything it can to ensure that our lives are as blessed as possible. The beautiful thing about intuitions in the fact that we are all born with them. However, people can have different levels of intuition.

The stronger our intuition is, the more it can help us through life. However, it can only do half of the work.

Do you know the old saying, you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink? The same concept applies when speaking of our intuition. Basically, it can offer us guidance but if we don’t listen and do our part, we might as well be wandering in the dark.

Listening to the advice that our intuition offers us can be a bit tricky. This is due to the fact that it relays its messages in feelings and thoughts rather than actual spoken word. In order to truly understand what your intuition is telling you, you must first develop your understanding of different cues and signs.

The more we develop our intuition, the more understandable and stronger it will become. As time goes on, the messages our intuition sends us will become clearer and clearer, as long as we listen.

There are no bounds to what this gift from the universe can offer us. The power of our intuition really is quite remarkable. There have even been many scientific discoveries as well as extremely successful business ventures that all started with a gut feeling.

However, as mentioned earlier, our intuition can’t do it all for us. We need to find a way to turn our “hunches” into positive paths in our lives.

Here’s a few helpful hints you may want to give a try:

• Learn to trust

Trust is highly important when it comes to not only developing our intuition, but using it to our advantage as well. The truth is, risk taking is a part of becoming a success.

There will be times that our intuition wants us to do things we may not necessarily think is a good idea at the time. However, our intuition wants nothing but the best for us. Keeping this in mind will help you to drop your defenses a little and follow the path that your intuition has laid out for you.

• Be Aware Of Everything

As mentioned earlier, our intuition doesn’t come in the form of spoken word, at least for most people. The majority of the messages your intuition sends out will be in the form of signs or gut feelings.

There is a meaning behind everything that happens in our lives. The sooner we realize that there is no such thing as coincidence and everything happens for a reason, the sooner we will be able to live the life that our intuition wants us to live.

• Start Journaling

Journaling is a great way of putting thoughts, feeling and emotions into something that makes sense and is easily reviewable. Writing down the hunches and gut feelings that you experience throughout your day may help you connect the dots and create a plan that you can put into action.

• Don’t rush things

It’s important that you have patience while developing your intuition. There are a lot of people who give up because they do not feel as if any progress is being made. I assure you, as long as you put in effort and allow enough time, your intuition will eventually become unstoppable.

It’s also important to keep in mind that the path we are led down may be bumpy at first. At times it may even feel like we have been led down the wrong path. However, eventually the road will straighten out and everything will become smooth.

We have an intuition for a reason which would be to guide us to blessed lives. However, some of us choose to ignore this guide and find ourselves lost in a dark cloud on confusion.

Which side would you rather be on, lost in confusion or blessed and content? Surely you want the blessed life we all deserve! The first step on your journey to happiness is developing your intuition.
