One Simple Exercise to Increase your Intuition

Intuition: the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning.

We are all intuitive beings and we are all born with the same intuitive abilities, it is just that some people have had more practice.

Your intuition already lives within you, it is already strong, and it is already willing to guide you. 

Learning to develop your intuition is truly an invaluable tool that can help you make decisions and can bring you clarity when logic alone is not enough.

You need not acquire any skills to enhance your intuition except a little patience and trust.

Meditation is one of the best ways to put you in the space of receiving intuitive guidance. This is because when your mind is still, you have the ability to filter out unnecessary thoughts in order to access that quiet, still, intuitive mind.

Another great exercise for increasing your intuition however, is a technique that is called Blind Reading.

Here is what to do:

Part 1

Take three blank cards and write: Yes, No & Maybe on one side. Turn them over and shuffle them around so you have no idea which card is where.

Still your mind, then ask a question that you know the answer to such as- “Is my name is Judy”. Close your eyes and place your hands over the cards one at a time.

Notice the different energy or feeling your receive when your hand is on top of each card.

Select the card that you felt the strongest pull to. Keep practicing until you learn what is your intuitive voice, and what is just your mind.

Part 2

When you feel that you have a good understanding of what your intuitive voice sounds and feels like, you can begin asking questions that you do not know the answer to.

Got something that is bothering you? Take the cards and write down three possible situations- one on each card.

Turn them over and repeat the exercise, see which possibility you are more drawn to- perhaps your intuition is trying to tell you something?

Blind Readings are a great way to develop your intuition and to discover what your intuitive voice sounds like. Again, with more practice you will soon become a natural at learning what your intuition is trying to tell you.
