Using your Intuition – Common Misconceptions
Do you find using your intuition difficult sometimes or do you feel that you don’t really receive intuitive responses? Here are a few misconceptions about intuition.
You may find that keeping an intuitive journal will help you discern real intuitive guidance from the standard daily chatter of the mind.
How We Hear our Intuition
How do you picture your intuition talking to you? Do you think that your intuition talks to you in a loud booming voice, like an epiphany, as though words are coming down from the sky telling you what to do next?
Your intuition is actually quite subtle, more like a soft, quiet whisper. It is actually that small, still voice that seems to come from nowhere, and can easily be drowned out by a busy or chatty mind. Learning to listen to that small, still voice can be challenging and may take some practice. A guided meditation is a good place to start.
Intuition and Free Will
Intuition also does not interfere with free will. It will just be that small voice in your mind that recommends that we do or don’t do something. It will never stand in the way of your own free will.
Intuition will not make choices for you, even though we may continually ask it to do just that. It will not take your choices away from you either. This is not something that will just put your life on autopilot and take away your free will and ability to make your own choices and decisions.
Using Your Intuition – The Big Picture
When you receive intuitive guidance, it doesn’t explain itself. It may guide you to a certain person, event, or book, but that is all you will get for the time being. Intuition comes in bite sized chunks and you are only given the next step in the process. It is like driving and only being able to see 50 feet in front of you.
Even though you wish to see the entire road to be sure that you are indeed on the correct road, intuition just tells you to do one, single step next. Learning to trust your intuitive insights and not override them will allow more steps to show themselves to you. Bit by bit, the answers will appear and when you look back, it will make much more sense than trying to see the end of the road all at once.
