Intuition is quite simply the ability to know and to understand something without conscious reasoning or external validation. Intuition is often called the “inner voice” and through it you are able to tap into the guidance and knowing of your soul and subconscious as well as your guides, angels and the divine.
Intuition is like a direct line in which your personality self can communicate and tap into the greater perspective of your higher self and soul.
Developing your intuition can help you to capture your intuitive insights so that you can make better decisions, avoid pitfalls, tap into spiritual guidance, and to take action to improve your life.
With intention and awareness, you can increase and develop your intuition from wherever you are right now.
While many people tend to feel that intuition is genetic, and you either have it from birth or not, the truth is that everyone is intuitive. Most people have simply been blocking out the voice of intuition for a long time. Consciously or unconsciously, not listening to intuition has been the unspoken intention of many.
Intuition is a natural process, and it's not weird or hard to develop. Everyone has intuitive ability, and while some people have developed their intuition more, or are naturally more receptive to their inner voice, we're all on the same playing field. In other words, intuitive guidance is available to all.
If you don't feel like you're very intuitive… Take a moment to shift your perspective.
You are incredibly intuitive. If you're not yet experiencing this, your intuitive voice is simply being blocked, by layers of energy filtering out the voice of intuition from your awareness.
Peel back the layers blocking your intuition to reveal this infinite source of guidance which is always available to you.
Are you ready to increase your intuition? Set the intention!
Remember that the universe responds to your thoughts, beliefs and intentions.
Simply writing an affirmation, and declaring to the universe that you are intuitive, starts the process of your intuitive development.
“I am incredibly intuitive.”
“I clearly hear and understand the voice of my intuition.”
“My intuition guides me well.”
“Every day in every way I am opening more and more to my intuitive abilities.”
Once you set the intention to tune into and notice your intuition, here are some additional steps you can take to tap into the intuitive guidance available to you now.
Increase Present Moment Awareness
Tapping into intuition goes hand in hand with increasing your awareness. Meditation is a wonderful place to begin, as it helps you to quiet the loud voice of your mind, so that you can hear your inner voice of intuition.
Time in nature is another great way to increase your awareness and thereby your intuition as time spent in nature has a natural calming and centering effect.
Do you have a big decision to make, or maybe you're unsure about what to do next? Ask a question relating to your current situation, focus in on it, and then let it go.
Leverage Nature to Boost Your Intuition
Seemingly out of nowhere, an answer, intuitive nudge, or idea may come into your awareness.
You can also ask to receive an intuitive impression, once you feel calm, grounded and centered, you can ask
“What insights about my question are present here in the natural world?”
Nature has time and time again proven to be an intuition activator for me, so give it a try.
Be Open to How Your Intuitive Guidance Appears
Intuition appears in many forms. This is why increasing your awareness is so important, as you never know how your intuitive guidance will appear (though with practice and awareness you can learn the ways most common for you).
One thing is certain through, intuition comes in response to your questions, and situations in your life. If you're wanting to increase your intuition. Start asking!
“What is my next step?”
“Is it in my highest and greatest good to ____________.”
“How can I increase my state of health and well being?”
“Is __________ a trustworthy person?”
These are just a few examples, but really, you can tune into anything with intuition… Ask, and then be aware, and remain open for the guidance to appear.
One trick I like to use for accessing intuition (especially if the ego mind is getting in the way of clarity, or I'm not sure about the intuitive guidance that is there) is to ask a question, and then let it go trusting the answer will appear in 24 hours.
Give it a try!
How Intuition Appears
Intuition may appear as a physical feeling in your gut, a line of dialogue you hear in your mind, a mental image of a scene or symbol, the awareness of subtle energy or the knowing of something just appearing in your mind, like you knew it all along.
Take time every day to tune into your inner state of being, to simply listen, as this is invaluable in learning to trust your intuition.
Open your heart and raise your vibration.
As your heart opens, so does your intuition. As you release blockages, density, limiting beliefs, doubts and fears, your vibration naturally increases and your intuition naturally opens. Practice listening and tuning into your intuition, and know that intuition won't eliminate challenges, or hard times from your life completely.
Intuition however can help you to make the best possible decisions, and can bring meaning, healing, and magic into your life.
One of the best ways to increase your intuition is to raise your vibration… And of course, connecting with your angels can help you to do just this!
Your angels are continually trying to connect with you and guide you through your intuition.
In the past few years, having helped thousands of people increase their intuition, I've found an interesting trick to boosting what I now call your “angel intuition”

Developing your intuition comes down to quieting your mind, listening to your heart, and remaining present and aware in the moment.
