Do you want to be more in touch with your Intuition?
In order to better hear the voice of your intuition, you must exercise it regularly. Your intuition is like any other muscle in your body. If you do the proper exercises it will become stronger and more supple. Exercising your intuitive muscle increases your trust in your inner voice, which in turn cultivates and strengthens the connection.
Silencing Internal Chatter
So, how do you exercise intuition? First, you must learn to set aside the incessant internal chatter of your analytical mind and enter a state of pure consciousness (ground state, transcendental consciousness). Many inner work tools require access below the superficial chatter of the inner critic and analytical mind. Then, reaching this state of pure consciousness where there is only Being and no unconscious chatter, you are able to prompt or encourage the operation of your intuition. We recommend Jappa meditation. This is the non-commercial version of Transcendental Meditation (TM). TM is the term coined by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
The result of this practice is a deeper awareness of intuition in waking consciousness. This intuitive state operates outside the realm of the analytical mind. This level awareness of where intuition is ever present is what Jiddu Krishnamurti refers to as “choice-less action.” Similarly, Zen Buddhism has at the center of its practice learning how to act without consciously choosing.
Learning to Increase the Flow of Intuition
Experience tells us that intuition does not click on and off like a light switch. It operates more like rainwater collecting and then flowing downhill. If you watch the rain falling in a gully, at first the ground is dry. Then, as the rain falls you see a tiny trickle of water form and start to run downhill. As the rainfall increases, the flow of water down the gully becomes a stream or even a river. This is how the voice of intuition operates once it has been enabled to flow.
Hear the Voice of Your Intuition with a Sutra
How does one increase the flow of intuition awareness? One of the best tools to increase the flow and your ability to hear the voice of intuition is through the use of a Sutra. A Sutra is a word or phrase you introduce while in a state of pure consciousness. A Sutra is a math formula for the subconscious mind. When you add 2 + 2 it results in the sum of 4. The same principle applies to the Sutra with the subconscious. When the proper Sutra is introduced, while the mind is residing in pure consciousness, then the Sutra produces the result of the intent.
The Universe is always trying to communicate with us. The Sutra encourages this dialogue. So, while in a state of meditation where there is only Being, then one can gently introduce the proper Sutra or formula to cultivate the connection with intuition. One Sutra for this purpose is, “find that which hidden.” This will prompt the flow of intuition. The Universe will answer when the question you present the question at the Universes level of vibration.
You will know or sense the right time to introduce the Sutra once you have reached ground state. Do not rush your meditation practice. Attain the space in between your thoughts. Then, gently present your request. You will be pleasantly surprised by the resulting connection. The more you practice this tool, the easier it becomes. This is one way to exercise your intuition.
The voice of your intuition is a conversation you are having with the Universe. The Universe is always on, never off. So, it’s vital you learn to receive these important messages.
