Since most of my clients are either an INFJ personality type or an INFP personality type (and every single one of them is an empath) I often get questions from them about intuition. They want to know how they can access their intuition, how they can increase it, and how they can understand it better. Because even though these types are born naturally intuitive, we live in a society that does not encourage intuition, or intuitive types. Our surrounding culture is almost solely focused on figuring things out through rational thought, i.e., thinking and problem-solving.
Intuition does not work in this way. It’s not like brainstorming. It’s not a conscious mind activity, although you can use the conscious mind to get yourself more comfortable with it. Something else that greatly helps is knowing what you’re looking for. If you have some idea of the clear signs that accompany intuition then you can more fully relax into receiving it.
There are 3 big signs that most people miss when it comes to trusting intuition. I talk more about this in the video below:
I’m teaching a new class all about this topic called Intuition Is a Superpower, and it all starts on June 24. We’ll be learning:
Why we suppress our intuition, and how to stop suppressing it
How to use concrete, physical-reality activities to help us access different levels of consciousness
How to tap into intuition to increase our creative flow
How to recognize the intuitive clues that show up pointing us toward our life purpose
If this sounds like a class you would be interested in, be sure to SIGN UP for my newsletter HERE to get all the updates on when registration opens, and be sure to SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel HERE to get more videos on intuition, writing, and creativity. If you have any questions about the class, you can send them to me here.
I struggled with being highly intuitive for many years myself, and my entire life changed (and got much, much better) once I learned how to get a handle on my intuition and use it to guide my life. I’m really excited to talk about these lessons with others and get more intuitive people tuned into their natural talents.
I hope I see you there!
