You tell yourself that you trust your intuition, and that you’ll know it when you see it. You are right, of course.
But sometimes, you get that little doubt. Maybe it isn’t your intuition, maybe it’s just what you want to think. Maybe you’re fooling myself. You need more proof, or maybe you need to research some more. Or maybe you should follow someone else’s advice. Or maybe a lot of things.
Don’t worry, that’s normal. You’re human. I thought I’d share some tricks I used to learn to recognize and trust my intuition more readily.
Intuition always feels pretty good, because you are in alignment with what you know on a subconscious level – even if you haven’t processed all the data yet. Even if your intuition is giving you a warning, it feels good when you follow it, like relief from anxiety.
Find the place in your body where you feel your intuition. It’s different for everyone. I call that place my Truthfinder.When I’m not sure about something, I go there to check my intuition. The more I practice, the better I get at finding my intuition.
To find your own truthfinder, remember a time where you had a strong sense of intuition. It can be a time where you did follow or didn’t, doesn’t matter. As you remember it, do a body scan and see what you feel in your body. There’s going to be a place where your intuition is making itself known. It could be in your abdomen, or a ringing in your ears, or a vibration in your chest, or a numbness in your hands or or or. Like I said, it’s different for everyone.
Having a truthfinder is really helpful in learning to trust your intuition, especially when you are looking for proof that your intuition is right.
When you look for things, you will see them. This means if you are looking for positive things, you’ll see them. If you are looking for negative things, you will see them. There are lots of things to see. When you look for things, you ask your brain to “see” things, and it does. It’s pretty helpful to be specific about what you’re asking your brain to seek out, because, you know, be careful what you ask for!
If you look for signs and proof, you will see them – maybe not circled in an aura of rainbow light or announced by an angelic chord – but they will appear. Your truthfinder helps you recognize them as signs, and once you see them, you will see them everywhere.
When you see them, you will see them everywhere. You might think this is coincidence, but when you are looking for things, you are giving your brain instructions to search for something specific, and to filter out the things that are irrelevant. So it does. And you find what you’re looking for everywhere.
And remember: in all things – progress, not perfection!
