This may surprise you, but everyone is born with beautiful, divine sparks of intuition. Perhaps it was intuition that brought you to this blog, so that’s a great start! Intuition is a spiritual gift of inner knowing that opens up portals of awareness beyond what you can see in the physical world. When you learn to tune into and listen to your intuition, it magnifies your whole experience with life and where it can potentially lead you. Keep reading to get 10 quick tips to tap into your intuition.

Intuition typically happens unexpectedly. It can be described as that hint of a sixth sense, subtle or strong gut feelings, or an inner knowing that cannot truly be explained, unless you've experinced it for yourself. Being aware of your intuition, can bring it to the forefront of your life, leading you way beyond your ordinary five senses.

There may have been times that you have experinced intuition and didn't even realize it. As you begin to pay attention to some signs of intuition, you might be surprised to learn that you are more in touch with your intuition than you may have previously thought.

For instance, one day you may have found yourself thinking about a particular friend, for no apparent reason, and then later on that day they call you unexpectedly. I suppose in a sense you could say that you somehow managed to tap into invisible energy waves connected to your friend, giving you a nudge of intuition in the form of a premonition. A premonition is just a fancy word for being able to perceive something happening before it actually occurs.

Initially, you may remark surprisingly to your friend, “Wow! It’s so crazy! I was just thinking about you!” In time, as these sparks of intuition come in more frequently, the details will fill in and the layers of intuitive energy will unravel, introducing you to a new spiritual gift that has been eagerly waiting to be discovered. In time, you will know when someone is going to call you and it won’t be a surprise at all.

Intuition is something that happens outside of our conscious awareness. It is connected to the Third Eye Chakra, also known as your intuitive eye, which is located just in the center of your brow. Think of this center as your connection with the Divine Mind of God. Intuition happens when the third eye chakra tunes into and connects with the divine mind of God, which is also known by the phrase, "The all seeing eye." The more you tune into Universal Consciousness, or the I AM presence of God, the deeper you can tap into your keen intuition, which is more accessible than you might realize.

As an additional note, Chakras are energy centers within your body that are energetically connected to your multiple body systems.

As your intuition seeks to make itself known, you have two choices. You can listen and act upon it, or you can ignore it and shrug it off as nothing. Most people do that latter, not really paying much attention to it. It could be that they’ve never been taught to listen to it, and this is why it is not implemented in their lives, however, imagine if it was. By tuning into your intuition, you can be guided further to create a life of deep purpose and fulfillment.

Let’s outline some ways that you can learn to tune into your intuition or turn on your inner guidance system. As you implement these quick tips, and are consistent with them, you will find that your ability to be intuitive will most definitely increase.

1. Listen Beyond Your Five Senses: When you allow yourself to be still long enough to actually listen, it invites your intuition to be activated. Take time in the morning to connect with your understanding of God, Love, The Universe, or Divine Source or a loving power greater than your current human self. As you find yourself connecting, it can be helpful to ask for guidance as you go about your day.

You can start by asking to tune into intuition or the Divine Mind of God, and be still enough to hear the answer. When you wake up in the morning, tune in, and ask a simple question. “Who am I being guided to connect with today?” Then take a moment to be still, and tune into the answer. If the answer doesn’t come right away, it’s okay. Perhaps at some point in the day you will unexpectedly start thinking of someone and then, that’s your cue to act! Practice listening by doing this daily.

Your Daily Practice: Take time in the morning to connect with your understanding of God, Love, The Universe, or Divine Source or a loving power greater than your current human self. Begin your day by asking questions like: “Who am I being guided to connect with today?” or “Where am I being guided to be physically present today?” Remember to be still enough to hear the answer and also be open throughout the day to be guided.

2. Tune Into Your Gut Brain: There are times when we just get a feeling about something for no seemingly apparent reason. Some people call it a gut feeling, or an uneasy feeling depending on the situation. Scientists are recently calling our gut a second brain that can literally communicate with our emotions and heighten our awareness. In an article by Health Line, they state that our gut is lined with over 500 million neurons that are fully alive and when activated on high alert.

When your gut feeling kicks in you will feel physical sensations coursing through your body. Your heart rate might raise, your stomach may feel tight, or you may get chills down your spine. There are other sensations that you can feel as well, that are more based on a feeling, or a knowing within you that you just can’t seem to shake. It’s important to note that your sixth sense or gut feelings don’t always feel negative. Sometimes, you’ll feel a wave of warmth wash over you, or chills all over your entire body, or simply an inner peace. You can heighten these sensations by practicing the art of feeling them daily.

Your Daily Practice: Pay attention to your surroundings no matter where you are. Throughout your day pay attention to the sensations that you are feeling within your gut and throughout your physical body. How is your body responding to the environment and to your interactions with others? In addition, how do you feel emotionally? Are you calm, nervous, uptight, or peaceful? Tuning into these things can support you in diving deeper into your sixth sense and trusting it.

3. Practice Inviting Feelings of Inner Peace: If you live in a chaotic world and don’t get much peace, it is next to impossible to get in touch with your intuition. Living in a chaotic world, is like trying to hear a song clearly, while static is screaming in the background on the radio. If you want a clear channel you need to dial it in. Your emotions are energy and energy either attracts or repels. If you are living a life of peace, acceptance, love, and forgiveness, you increase your chances of being able to tune into your intuition.

Your crown chakra, your third eye chakra, and their connection with your heart chakra are the three energy centers that support greater intuition. Listening to guided meditations or connecting with the Universal Consciousness of God, to enhance these energy centers can begin to help support feelings of inner peace. Also creating other ways to invite peace into your life can be very beneficial so you may open your mind and heart up to intuitive guidance for your life.

Daily Practice: Begin inviting peace into your life by participating in guided meditations or simply being still. We have
