The Two Best Ways to Improve Your Intuition

Michelle Jaqua

Being highly sensitive person has its ups and downs.

My downs mostly come when I am getting ready for work and fixing my hair with a stream of thoughts going through my head, then having my stomach get upset. My brain ponders the reasons; am I worried about my finances? Am I overwhelmed because of the kids? Am I anticipating a difficult day at work? Or are the handful of vitamins I took earlier upsetting my stomach?

Sometimes I don’t have time to sit and listen to my body, so I take an antacid and move along with the rest of my day.

Those are my downtimes, when I don’t take the time to listen to my body.

Take a Moment to Listen To Your Body

When I do have the time to sit and listen to myself, I get the most incredible revelations. If I sit and listen to my stomach ache, I might find that I need to budget my finances a bit better, diligently organize and set boundaries at work, be more mindful about my writing habits, or take vitamins that are easier on my stomach.

Take a Moment to Listen To Your Mind

It’s not necessarily a clear path on developing intuition. It has its ups and downs. When I’m able to sit and listen, meditate, and get guidance from my higher mind, these are the times when I go in the right direction.

If I can’t, I tell myself it’s alright. I do I need to go to work. I need to make money. I need to provide a living for myself, and in the meantime develop my creativity, develop my passions and skills, and listen to myself.

It’s a balancing act. It’s not perfect and that’s okay. When I have those moments of creativity, those aha moments, I am empowered. I’m able to move in a clear direction. If I don’t have an ‘aha’ moment, that’s okay too.

I can’t have an clear ‘aha’ moment every damn day.

These moments are the nuggets of your existence. They are what will bring you to your higher self that will transform you into the beautiful person that you are.

It’s not a perfect path. It’s not meant to be a perfect path. You might take some side roads, or you may have to backtrack and come back to the main road. But keep moving. Keep working on yourself. You are the most important person in your life.
