Do you hear your intuition? We all have it ~ that gut instinct that tells us what to do and what not to do. Too often, we ignore our gut or we are too busy to even hear it. Why do you want to listen to it and how do you empower your intuition?
Intuition is your soul’s way of whispering your truth to you. Your soul always knows the truth and when you listen to it ~ and follow it ~ life unfolds beautifully before your eyes. By following this innate instinct you have (for everyone does), you are able to make choices that are aligned with YOU and that lead you to more Joy & Abundance in life. It’s a life skill that can be learned. You can Empower your own intuition!
The Best Way to Start to Empower your Intuition is to follow this 7 step approach:
Know what your dreams and desires are~ uncover these secrets by using Vision Boards. They show you hidden messages from your soul. Check this out if you need support ~ it’s a great opportunity
Slow down the inner chatter ~ in essence, stop thinking and over thinking. Try meditation or yoga. Disconnect from tethered electronic chatter. Take a deep breath of air. All of these will help slow down the negative self talk so you can hear your inner truth.
Stop the emotional rat race ~ allow yourself to feel emotions but know that’s what they are ~ just emotions. They are not the truth of WHO you are.
Stop asking the Why Questions ~ I love this one. Why questions typically have victim or negative emotional content to them. “Why me? Why is it this way?” when you stop asking why and focus on the who, what and how questions, you move into action solving!
Use Intuition Awakening Tools ~ Create Vision Boards, Use Oracle Cards, Try a pendulum for divine answers, Take time to Use a Sacred Journal. All of these will give be your compass to your inner truth.
Retreat ~ Take time for yourself a few times a year. A retreat can be as simple as a day you create for yourself to go on a quest to your inner soul or it can be a Retreat that serves as a guide for new understanding. Soul Wise offers them for Intuition Awakening at least two times a year!.
Look for Signs ~ Be Curious! When you see something ask yourself “I wonder if that’s a sign and if it is, what does it mean?” It’s a great way to begin to understand what steps to take in your life and get validation for them or correct a mis-step already taken.
It’s a great time of year to begin to empower your intuition. We will have a Mercury in Retrograde in our path as we step toward this summer. It’s a great time to use go inward, to discover the compass to your soul’s truth and to step forward brilliantly as summer’s sun and fun appear at the end of next month. Do you have anything planned in the next month or two to help you slow down and discover your soul’s truth?

“[Emotions] are not the truth of WHO you are.” Wow – how powerful!
Thanks for the reminder about yoga and meditation, Laura. I’m making progress in developing both these practices, so I take your words as a nudge from the Universe that I’m moving in the right direction. 🙂
Love this. I have heard my intuition scream, and I have let my ego self ignore it, as I stomped right on into disasters! Now, because our your teachings Laura, I listen and let lead….so much more peace, and room for creative abundance. vroooommm!
Great list! Thank you! Meditation has been a big one for me and I had huge shifts when I started to rephrase the limiting questions to powerful solution questions! I would love to more about the “Sacred Journal” – what specifically is that? Thanks, Laura!
I love all of your seven step plan! One step I do not use as often is taking time for a retreat. I intend to schedule one day for a retreat in June and love that you are offering two Intuition Retreats each year! Thank you!
So many great hits of info! I started reading a book recently about connecting with intuition! I am learning to listen to it more… But I would like to I prove my speed in which I implement what “Intuition” tells me. This is a crazy question… But how often does one typically “hear” this guidance? Sometimes I feel like I get it multiple times a day but then question if that is valid or not…
