Intuition, part 2

In these practices, there is no right or wrong; there exists the subjectivity of human existence, individual needs, direction, and priorities in each person's life

Daily Intuition Practice

Intuition is an integral part of our existence.

At times when we feel disconnected or want to incorporate more practices that cultivate our sensitivity, we can choose things that suit us. Here are some examples of how we can cultivate and practice our sensation.

oracle card

Oracle Cards:

There are all kinds of oracle cards! By choosing cards with themes that are appealing to us (e.g., unicorns, mermaids, angelic forms, elements of nature, etc.), we can cultivate our intuition nicely, easily, and quickly.

How to use them: We connect with our inner need, which can be a specific request or intention. We shuffle the cards and allow ourselves to receive the message in our own way. After drawing the card with the message, we immerse ourselves in the figure, the colors, the sensation we receive, and then, if desired, we read the message in detail.

mindful smell

Essential Oils and Aromatic Sticks:

Beyond the properties of each herb and oil, we can have some favorite scents and sticks. There are times when a particular scent suits us very well, and other times when the same scent may bother us.

How to use them: We go to a store with essential oils and aromatic sticks and allow ourselves to smell and choose what attracts us, without necessarily knowing the properties and uses of each one beforehand. We can then explore the properties of each chosen item and see where and how it benefits us. We can use it accordingly; in a space with diffusers or with a base oil for external/dermal use.

intuitive crystals, crystal healing

Crystals:

In a crystal store, we are usually enchanted just by the beauty of the stones. It’s possible that the first time we visit such a store, we will spend more time than expected or feel drawn to it immediately. This could happen when our eyes fall on a particular stone, and all our attention becomes focused there. Or, when we touch the stones, one may seem to “stick” to our hand and we won’t want to let go.

How to use them: We allow the stone to choose us. Then, in the same way as with perfumes, we allow ourselves to connect with it and see its qualities later, meditate with it or give our own qualities, those that we felt activated with that particular crystal.

mindful listening

Mindful Listening:

When music of any kind is playing, individuals who are clairaudient, constantly and continuously analyze the harmony and tones of the music, but also the loudness and volume of the place. However, this is not always pleasant because wherever they are, they automatically analyze the acoustic environment, such as the subway or the city’s noise, and their ears become overloaded.

How to use it: Initially, create moments in which you sit in a quiet environment. Then, engage in conscious observation of the music and sounds, cultivating your musical sensation. Eventually, a melody begins to “speak” to you. This can be expressed through humming while doing something else, whistling, or if you play a musical instrument, you can start improvising based on this idea. Contact with nature and natural sounds is essential.

Mindful seeing

Mindful Viewing:

Similarly to clairaudient individuals,clairvoyant individuals are sensitive to colors and brightness, often with heightened visual perception, may tend to see/observe their surroundings, such as light, angles, and details, with an acute sense of vision. While this can be very enjoyable, as in a sunset, it can also be very unpleasant, such as in intense changes in colors, images, and brightness as seen in action movies.

How to use it: By gaining awareness of this sensitivity, we can choose moments with natural light and low lighting, candles, and a beautiful atmosphere with minimal elements. Other options include moments without stimuli from screens of any kind, reading a book, or meditation with closed eyes. Equally important is contact with nature, allowing us to gaze into the distance.

mindful tasting

Mindful Tasting:

People with developed intuition through taste are highly sensitive to the flavors of food. They can easily trust their taste to know what their body needs.

How to use it: Choose whole foods, cook with minimal salt, and avoid any flavor enhancers, allowing the cultivation of taste buds. You can also practice mindful eating and selected forms of fasting.

ceremonies and rituals

Rituals/Ceremonies:

These can be something very simple and daily habits, such as taking a shower. However, they can be developed as elaborate as desired, using any of our daily habits and combining whatever suits us.

How to use them: Choose an activity that brings you joy and pleasure, whether it’s something you already do or something you want to incorporate into your daily routine. Regardless of your choice, cultivate it to make it your own, including whatever makes you feel beautiful, good, and centered. With crystals, inspiring music, and scents in the space. As you engage in this activity consciously, as your personal ritual, allow your analytical mind to quiet down, and come into connection with all your senses, thus tuning into your intuition.

mindful movement

Relaxation Exercises:

It’s essential to allow ourselves daily relaxation. Regarding the body, this can be achieved through stretches, synchronized breathing, and concerning the mind, directing it to relax, slow down, and achieve inner connection.

How to use them: Create a peaceful personal space, free from screens and distractions, with low lighting and candles, something that removes external stimuli and connects us with our inner selves. This represents the moment when we dedicate ourselves to a personal reset, a return to our center. In connection with our inner voice, our inner guidance, we allow space for this need to be expressed.

We need to remember that in these practices, there is no right or wrong; there exists the subjectivity of human existence, individual needs, direction, and priorities in each person’s life.

Beware of the delusion

There are times when the mind becomes very powerful and can cause us to prove a perception wrong from the beginning. This is known and observed as a self-fulfilling prophecy by the sociologist Robert Merton.

In the case of a self-fulfilling prophecy, we strongly project a distorted belief, and we feel that all the events in our lives confirm what we initially thought. This is a significant trap because it can lead to even obsessive dissociation.

Another case of fallacy that is not intuition is when the ego speaks. We speak from the analytical mind, we give conclusions and results from the analytical mind that seeks confirmation.

Anything that involves fear, a sense of smallness, lack and criticism is not a voice of intuition for our higher good and personal development. It is about other feelings and projections that appear to look for other parts of our mental development.

Whatever is written represents the sharing of personal thoughts and observations. Its purpose is to share and potentially provoke thought. It is not a diagnosis, nor a reference to illnesses, syndromes, dysfunctions, or disorders.
