How to Develop Intuition
Intuition is a tool that all of us have. Some people suggest that it’s a mystical power; others would suggest that it’s merely our subconscious trying to tell us what we already know.
Regardless of what you believe the source of intuition to be, one thing is for sure – we all have that little voice that tries to tell us things from time to time. We may often learn to ignore that little voice, because we turn to logic and focus on being practical, but we’ve experienced a lot over the years, and there is something within us that has truly accumulated a tremendous amount of wisdom. Listening to that little voice can be a good thing, so here are some tips on how to develop your intuition.

(5 Easy Things That Develop Intuition:)
1. Meditate for a few minutes each day.
One characteristic of (psychic) intuition is that it has a soft voice most of the time. It can be challenging to notice it if our minds are busy with other things, meditation is a great way to clear the mind and make room for our intuition to come shining through.
- A simple technique to clear your mind is to simply count your breaths and attempt to stay focused on your breathing. Avoid letting your mind wander, but when it does, just bring the focus back to your breathing.
Our dreams can be full of useful information, and many psychologists believe that we work out our challenges in our sleep.
It’s difficult for most of us to remember our dreams, as studies show that we average at 5 dreams per night. Most of us are lucky to remember even one. Try these dream exercises below:
- After you get in bed, tell yourself that you want to remember your dreams in the morning. Keep thinking this to yourself until you fall asleep.
- Keep a notebook or dream journal and pen near your bed. A voice recorder can work well, too. As soon as you wake up, start writing. Dreams tend to fade from memory quickly.
- Review your dreams and see if there might be any information you can use in your life. This is one way to hone your inner psychic powers.
The surest way to shut down your intuition is to never follow it. Start using it in situations that have minor importance. It could be as simple as taking a walk and asking yourself which way you should turn at each intersection or fork in the road.
- Show your psychic intuition that you’re listening and responding. You’ll be more likely to hear from it in the future.
4. Keep your mind busy, but not too busy.
Many people find that their best ideas come while their mind is busy, but not too busy. Some examples commonly cited include walking, driving down the highway, mowing the grass, taking a shower, and listening to the rain. Think about the times you’ve had great ideas. Try to put yourself in similar situations more frequently.
5. Keep a journal.
To develop intuition power, also try to take a few minutes each day to write in a journal. Sometimes, putting things down on paper opens a floodgate of ideas and inspiration. Study what you’ve written. You’re likely to find insights you haven’t yet considered.
- Keep your journals in a safe place, so you’ll feel more comfortable with being honest and thorough.
Being in touch with your intuition can help you identify and solve the challenges in your life that are causing you stress, concerns, etc. It also releases your imagination and creativity.
Your intuition is a great resource, but it’s important to nurture it. Start with the smaller things. When your intuition has proven it’s reliable, use it to make bigger decisions.
Intuition is a tether to the subconscious. It’s your ultimate source of wisdom and creative energy. Make life easier and richer by utilizing all of your mental-spiritual resources.
