Easier said than done? You might consider some people capable of tapping into their heart intuition, but you haven’t been able to do it, or it is such a rarity that you readily dismiss all such instances as mere coincidence or sheer luck. No matter, say researchers who have studied the intuitive process, because the heart, like the body, is constantly engaged in intuitive activity we are not even aware of, and it keeps right on intuiting – receiving information before the brain, processing it, then steering us in directions it deems beneficial to us.
One of the greatest gifts in life is being able to be in touch with your own intuitive guidance from the heart. It’s that still small voice inside each of us. Life just seems to work better and feel easier when I follow mine. You can even enhance your ability to use your heart intuition, as you reduce your stress levels.
Recently, a friend was going through a hard time and I wanted to help her sort it out but my heart intuition said “wait”. A few days later, it felt right to connect with her. We had a really powerful and heartfelt conversation. She’d had time to reflect on the issue a little deeper, so our talk was more effective than it would have been if I’d rushed right in.
Here is how to fine-tune your own heart intuition:
- Download the GPS for the Soul app from iTunes. Use it for 2-3 minutes several times a day, if possible. If you get a stressful reading, follow or create a guide of your own on the app to bring yourself into more balance.
- Ask your heart if you could access your intuition more consistently and how would it influence your life? Write down your answers to help chart your progress.
- Practice asking your heart for guidance. Start with simple practical things like: What helpful attitudes should I bring to an upcoming situation? Should I speak up or hold back? What would be a balanced meal for my body? Calm the mind and emotions and listen for the first thoughts that come to you that feel right. Write them down. Do a self-test. Follow your heart and see how things turn out.
