A friend went to a workshop that helped her identify her unique intuition type. Did she receive her intuitions visually (was she mostly clairvoyant)? From a gut knowing (was she mostly clairsentient)? By “hearing” her insights (was she mostly clairaudient)? Exhibiting some wonderful imagery when asked to think of something, she and her teacher identified her intuitive strength as that of a clairvoyant.
I always found it interesting that we have our own unique intuitive abilities, and we are stronger in some than others. When I began to uncover my own intuitive potential I found myself wanting to develop all of them. My friend’s next question to me was similar, which is how do I improve my intuition? What techniques are best?
A pivotal experience in my life in this regard was the training I had in One Light Healing Touch, which taught me to develop my intuition–so crucial for being a good healer–by healing myself. We learned to do this by receiving healings, learning and practicing energy clearing techniques, and by setting up a practice of steady meditations.
Find techniques that help you bring your personality into check so that it doesn’t block or interfere with what your intuition is telling you. I, for example, am clearer and clearer in regard to receiving the correct messages, but I find my personality still has a stubborn habit of then jumping in and giving an often incorrect interpretation!
I expect others of you on this “path” have similar objectives and questions, and are always eager to learn more, so I thought I’d open this article up to ask you to share your best “personality clearing” (a phrase just dubbed by me) techniques. Here are mine (and note, too that we have almost 200 meditation exercises on Care2.)

And my personal, most insightful meditation.
