People who want to sharpen their intuitive abilities will benefit greatly from hanging out with individuals who value this skill and are supportive. When each person is free to explore and openly discuss their hunches, insights or intuitive thoughts, it actually increases the influence of inner knowing. Research shows that when you spend time with people who respect and believe in intuition, your gut instinct gets stronger!
My advice for those who wish to develop their intuitive muscle is to allow for variety in your life. Limit time with inflexible or rigid people who are judgmental about your hunches. When you start to pay attention to the flow of your life — without censoring, editing or discounting — it allows you the freedom to explore your inner feelings and gut instincts. Resist sorting out your experiences according to what you think they ought to be or what you’re told is “acceptable.”
Developing your intuition is innate and natural and often inspired by the people you connect with in our daily lives. Allowing yourself to freely express your interests (and the positive feedback you receive) are two of the most critical factors in expanding your senses.
When you connect with people who are judgmental about your intuition, the experience can can pack an emotional wallop that blocks you from sensing things around you. The emotional significance of being with people who support your need to explore the spiritual side of life allows for an expansive view of things in life.
Living intuitively allows for you to:
1. Expand your other senses.
2. Operate from the sense of seeing everything as “living in perfection.”
3. Set aside ego-based desires and preferences and let life flow and unfold on its own.
By living intuitively you will probably discover that the universe will meet you more than halfway. Sharpening this skill may lead to a more joyful, prosperous and healthy life.
