So many naturally intuitive people know they get solid information from their intuition, and they are even aware of when it is showing up in their lives, but it can be very difficult for most of us to listen to our intuition, even if we have a naturally intuitive temperament.
I’ve worked with countless intuitive people (INFJ personality types and INFP personality types) who have this problem. They get a feeling about something, or they just “know” what is going to happen. They might see an image in their mind, have a vivid dream, or hear their inner voice warning them about something, and many times that message gets louder when it is ignored. But still, the person pushes it away.
This is because we don’t trust it.
The reason so many of us have trust issues with our intuition is due to anxiety. Most people in our society experience such a constant state of anxiety that it feels normal, and so, many of us make decisions from a place of anxiety. When we live like this all the time, we habitually:
Want to know for certain if something will work, before we do it.
Want lots and lots of reassurance—and still it’s not enough.
Look outside of ourselves for approval.
Get more deeply entrenched in the left brain—logic, reason, being rational—and cut ourselves off from the right brain—the place where we can access intuition.
So, how do we actually start listening to our 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. I’ve gotten so many requests to teach this class that I’m sure it’s going to be a really fun and exciting experience for people who sign up. We’ll be learning about things like:
The difference between fear and intuition.
How to ask your intuition for details about your future, and how to listen to the answers.
How to recognize your own intuitive cues when they show up.
The best methods to develop your intuition.
What blocks us from being fully in tune with our intuition, and how to get unblocked.
How to bring curiosity and adventure to the process of using our intuition, and how to stop being afraid of it.
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 the next two videos in this series. If you have any questions about the class, you can send them to me here.
Intuition is one of my favorite topics, and the response for this class has already been overwhelming, so I’m really excited to see where this goes. I hope you’ll join us!
