3 simple ways to strengthen your intuition

3 simple ways to strengthen your intuition

Your intuition is always going to be your best bet when looking for guidance or seeking answers about life’s challenges. Although it is what guides us, there is often hesitation and lack of trust in what our inner self is telling us. Today I’m sharing 3 simple ways to strengthen your intuition, which will help you to become more confident about what your gut is telling you.

3 simple ways to strengthen your intuition

1. Learn to trust your gut

Your inner voice comes from your solar plexus chakra, which is located near your navel. When you get a “gut feeling” that is actually your intuition coming through. However, learning to trust the feeling you’re getting can be a challenge. Work on letting go of doubt by making a conscious choice to do so. The next time you get a gut feeling, decide to trust it and act accordingly. Before long, it will become a habit.

Another way to reinforce trust is to recite positive affirmations daily. For inspiration, check out last week’s post, 11 beautiful affirmations for trusting your intuition.

2. Use crystals to raise your vibration

Crystals have a high vibration and therefore can help us to raise our own. I recommend setting a specific intention when using any crystal. For example, don’t just ask for it to help you “improve your gifts”. Instead, pick a more focused goal like “having greater clarity when receiving messages”.

3. Use your intuition regularly

Your intuition is like a muscle – the more you use it, the stronger it gets. We’re all busy and it can be hard to find time to devote to this goal. However there are two excellent ways to use your intuition daily that don’t require a huge time commitment.

Meditating for as little as 15 minutes per day will help raise your vibration. You might choose a mindfulness meditation, or use this time to connect with your Spirit Guide and ask them to help you with your mission to strengthen your intuition.

Divination is an excellent way to keep those intuitive “muscles” toned. If you don’t have time to do a full reading, just pull one oracle card or rune. Then consider how it is relevant to your current situation and focus on this message during your meditation.
