The other day I was leading a class in How to Grow Your Business Intuition. We talked about what to do to enhance your ability to tap into your intuition to support your business. One of the participants shared what not to do. She said “Don’t poo-poo what you hear or feel.”
This made me think about how building your intuitive abilities is a little like raising confident kids. If you’re constantly ignoring them, discounting what they have to say, or outright making them wrong, they’ll have a much harder time speaking up confidently as they get older. Same with your ability to tap into your higher knowing. If you ignore and doubt it, you’ll stop getting messages, miss noticing your instincts and hinder downloading creative ideas that can help guide you.
In preparation for that class I talked with Money (I do this a lot through journaling). This is one way I get intuitive hits and creative ideas. What I heard and shared with the group is that to build your intuitive muscles focus on these four notions:
Be Present – practice quieting your chatty mind to be able to notice your own good intentions
Be Curious – don’t judge what’s coming through for you. If you aren’t clear on what something means, get curious and ask for clarification
Believe – it is crucial to trust what your gut, your intuition, or whatever you want to call it, is telling you. A way to prove your trust is to act on it.
Try this today. Ask the question: who should I be in touch with today? Get quiet. Listen for the answer. It may come in a thought, a sign, or words on a page. Then reach out to the person! Let me know what happens when you do.
I had a hunch you needed to see this,
