1. Know how you’re wired to receive guidance
So many of my students and clients have been claircognizant. If you suspect you have this gift, don’t be expecting to receive spiritual guidance in a dramatic way. You’ll be receiving information ‘in between the lines’, in a subtle way.
Most people can develop any of these gifts further if they apply themselves to it. Check out my Intuitive Awakening Course if you’re interested in doing that.
2. Have a go at one of my intuitive experiments
These are designed to help you to pick up information about other people. You can access previous experiments here.
3. Try binaural beats
Binaural beats are excellent for helping you to access an altered state of consciousness effortlessly – the kind of space you’re in when you meditate. They can be very effective for some people. I know of professionals who listen to binaural beats in the background when they do their readings.
4. Read books or watch TV shows about the paranormal
(I’m mostly serious about this one!) It’s not a very strategic step, but some people find that the material enters their subconscious mind and soon enough, they’re having precognitive dreams and intuition starts happening.
5. Call on the angels
6. Write down your dreams
Obviously, not all of our dreams are significant (some will obviously be your subconscious mind working things out, especially when you’re feeling stressed in your waking life). Other times, we will be receiving guidance or spiritual input from our dreams – that’s to say wisdom that comes from our Higher self or Spirit Guides. These dreams often occur just before waking.
Writing down your dreams means that you can unravel them more clearly and easily.
This is something I have only just started to do regularly, and although I started doing it to help me to relax, it’s also given me a real boost in my daily life, in terms of the amount of intuition that is coming to me without me asking for it.
My favourite way to meditate is to put aside 30 minutes, and listen to my binaural beats on my MP3 player. Firstly, I do this breathing exercise for a few minutes, then once my mind has slowed down, I focus intently on my breath, repeatedly bringing my attention back to it when I go off on a thought tangent (which happens repeatedly.)
Don’t try it when cats are around!
9. Use your intuition in everyday situations
Your intuition will often notify you in the important situations where a lot is at stake. But for those times when you want to save a bit of time, money or energy, you usually need to ask, and this is a great time to hone your intuition.
I use my intuition for grocery shopping. I live in a smallish town where there isn’t always as much choice as I’d like, and sometimes it can be hard to get produce unless it’s in season, so if in the past I’ve noticed they don’t always have capsicum or leeks, for example, at the local supermarkets, and I need to get some, I’ll ask where to go for some fresh red capsicums that day. If you are someone who shops for bargains, you might like to have a go at this and ask where the cheapest place for such-and-such is, before you go shopping.
Clear your mind with a short breathing exercise, then ask your Higher self or guides a specific question and listen to the first impression or thoughts that come into your mind.
10. Do an attunement or spiritual initiation of some kind
People often find their intuition sky rockets when they do a Reiki attunement and learn how to perform Reiki on others.
My Professional students often tell me that they find that the Akashic Records attunement they do as part of the course really opens them up spiritually, too.
Speaking of initiations, past clients and students have said to me that pregnancy opened them up intuitively and spiritually. Are there any mums out there who have also found this?
