An 83-year-old woman was swindled out of thousands of dollars she paid to three men for concrete repair, which was poorly done and “extremely sloppy”, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press 4-16-11. Although we don’t know if this 83-year-old woman had a feeling that theses men were not trustworthy, we know we are often the recipient of intuitive guidance, but sometimes we don’t choose to listen or follow this advice and we can kick ourselves afterwards.
Intuition is the small voice inside you, sometimes a gut feeling within, that nudges you in a certain direction. We all get hunches or suggestive nudges in our daily life, that when heeded, are beneficial, but we don’t always listen to these nudges. When we don’t listen of follow these nudges, we are usually sorry and vow to listen next time. Often we have a course of action and think we know what we are doing, so we don’t take our intuitive guidance seriously.
One may wonder exactly what intuition is and how one enhances our intuition to become more prevalent in our lives. Intuition actually comes from many places. Intuition is sometimes your soul or higher self speaking to you. Sometimes intuition is the voice of a guide or wise soul that is lending assistance. Sometimes your intuition is a message from your guardian angel or even God. And sometimes your intuition is the voice of a deceased love one that is helping and watching over you as you continue your life.
We enhance our ability to receive intuitive messages by investing in others, leading positive lives, and by increasing our energy through gratitude, prayer, and positive intention. This allows us to automatically and unconsciously tap into the energy of others. The things we do to increase our energy field also allow us to receive more frequent and clearer messages. We also enhance our intuitive skills by:
1. Listening to our gut feelings when they occur and acknowledging the possibility that it is indeed our intuition.
2. Praying for help and guidance.
3. By calming our mind and not letting it wander into fear and playing out our fearful scenarios. When we allow our mind to wander and play out fearful scenarios, we actually lower our energy level and inhibit intuitive hunches from getting through.
Our lives are clearly enhanced when we heed our intuitive guidance. May we choose to graciously receive the help we are given and enhance our lives as a result.
