Imagine we all had a fabulous Nascar race car in our garage ! Can you imagine yourself driving that car, at full speed ? I bet you do ! How many of us would be tempted to unleash the beast immediately and drive as fast as we can ?
But it wouldn’t take long to realize that we were lacking some essential skills in order to control that much horsepower ! Without the proper training, we would possibly make one mistake after the other or even end off track !
Some give up after their first attempt. Too scared to try again they quit their practise and go back to driving their tiny vehicle, just as most of us do. They lack courage and think it is impossible to “own” the super car so they return to mediocracy !
Others try several times but aren’t patient enough to continue till the end, they are distracted by opposition or tired of putting in the hard work !
Then there are people driven by passion, pushed forward by faith, people who never give up ! They turn to skilled drivers for advice, pilots who know every detail of their car.
They manage to be bold enough to hold on to their vision and diligently practise, destined to succeed and then one day, just like that, they feel a change within, some kind of shift and they are finally able to be “one” with the car !
So it is with our intuition. We are all born with a complete guiding system that helps us navigate through life ! But it is a super sensitive organ, sometimes it is not fully adjusted, not completely fine-tuned yet !
Even if you aren’t a highly sensitive person, everyone has these same capacities and can develop his or her intuition !
In order to get the most out of this operating system, in order to make it work to its full capacity so that it can serve, guide and protect us, we need to practise. Practise makes perfect ! Just as you exercise to develop and strengthen your muscles !
Our intuition or sixth sense is a combination of spiritual gifts and can work in different ways. This includes clairvoyance, clairsentience, clairaudiance and claircognizance. We usually have a preference for one of these gifts or a sense that is more developed.
Here are some tips for training your intuition !
Clear your mind ! You won’t be able to listen to this little voice within when your mind is already preoccupied with several expectations or when you are constantly dwelling on what bothers you. Go for a walk in nature, meditate to find the quitness in yourself.
Address your higher self and ask a question, but instead of waiting for the answer or again thinking about the problem, get lost in another activity. There’s a big chance that your answer will pop up later or that you will see signs in your surroundings leading you to the solution of your problem.
Does the course that you are taking feel good ? Or are there signs of aversion, uncomfortable feelings ? Listen to your body ! It knows what is good for us !
Trust your gut feeling !
Phuro! Be inspired!
