Connect to your Intuition
If you feel like you are living in a phase of transition, then you are not alone! We’re all beginning to see how our own sense of self shapes our external world and life experience. As we move towards this new intuitive approach, many of us have begun to question what we thought we knew for certain – goals, feelings, daily habits, the list is truly endless.
What Is Intuition And Spirituality?
Many commonly refer to intuition as a “gut feeling” – something they know without reason, justification, or conscious understanding. For some, it helps guide decisions and movement towards a new path, while others use it to better understand the world around them.
More people than ever before describe themselves as spiritual rather than religious. While this definition takes a new form for each and every individual, there is a blanket description that can help us better understand its nature.
Spirituality is defined as the awareness of a sense or belief that there is something bigger than oneself, that there is more to being human than sensory experience, and that the greater total of which we are a part is cosmic or divine in nature. True spirituality necessitates the opening of one’s heart.
We Were All Born With Natural Intuition
Although many of us consider intuition a supernatural gift, the truth is that we are all born with our own sense of it and must cultivate it and exercise it as we would any other muscle. Unfortunately, many factors in today’s modern world have, in some ways, clouded our intuition. These things include a consistent use of technology, overconsuming work responsibilities, and other activities that essentially distract us from existing in the present moment.
What Is Changing In The Intuition Age?
As many of us begin experiencing a sense of discontentment or discomfort with today’s lifestyle, the search for something deeper has never been more profound. Many of us have begun to realize that we aren’t truly living our lives, and in some ways, are just existing for the next day.
These feelings can lead to a sense of emptiness or a lack of purpose. As more people become aware of this void, there is an elevated interest in spiritual activities and practices that nurture intuition.
Meditation will help you rid your mind of distractions and teach you how to perceive subtle inner signals better. Setting aside some time each day, even just a few minutes, can help you learn how to quiet your mind and open yourself to the wisdom that you already carry within yourself.
When you have an intuitive hunch, don’t dismiss it. Rather than trusting intuition, the conscious mind frequently debates it. By doing so, you may be able to rationalize yourself out of intuitive knowledge that could improve your life.
Escape To Nature
Being in the natural environment, away from technology and other cognitive mind distractions can help us reclaim the type of intuition we needed before we relied on today’s gadgets and conveniences to keep us safe.
