Ways Of Developing Intuition That You Can Trust

Here are some scenarios for developing intuition that can lead to reliable inner guidance on demand. This element of extrasensory perception is something everyone has. It comes from within and may be the product of your mind's ability to gather facts surrounding an event combined with certain mental capabilities. 

A demonstration of intuition.

When I was at mystery school, back in the 1980s, one of the first lessons, where I learned about developing intuition, was a demonstration that involved catching someone's attention, without saying a word or even looking at their face.

I was shown how to focus intently on the back of a random person's head and within a minute they'd either glance at me or acknowledging me in some way.

It wasn't magic or a particularly mystic skill because this originated from the primitive ability that kept cavemen alive. They could feel when a predator, or another being, was watching them allowing them to prepare for an attack or run. This also applies to the basic concept of developing intuition.

The exercise was not an indication of any supernatural power in me, it simply demonstrated that each person I focused on responded to their own intuitive sense. 

Developing Intuition"Intuition is really a sudden immersion of the soul into the universal current of life, where the histories of all people are connected, and we are able to know everything, because it’s all written there" - Paulo Coelho - The Alchemist

6 Examples for Developing Intuition


1 - You have the ability to feel the intentions of others.

  • People set off a feeling and everyone can perceive it. They may get a “gut” reaction that can be as obvious as a blow in the stomach or just an easy feeling. It's part of our makeup. Learning to listen to that feeling and separate it from all the other thoughts in your head is the difficult part.

2 - Minds process information extremely fast, quicker than you can put that information into words.

  • Have you ever met someone and immediately disliked them? You can't put your finger on it, but you know something is wrong. That message can occur when your mind processed their stance, the words they spoke, their body language and put them together with a red flashing warning signal. It wasn't one thing, but the incongruity of the entire picture. You do not consciously see the incongruity, but it registered at a subconscious level.

3 - Learn to separate emotions and logic from intuition.

  • Tough, but not impossible if you pay close attention. Note everything about the situation and your reaction when you have the feeling or voice. An emotional reaction is often different from a logical one or even intuitive one. The more you pay attention to everything surrounding a circumstance, the easier it will be to separate the three and know it's your intuition telling you to act, watch out, or prepare for something.

4 - Paying attention to your intuition increases its power.

  • Your intuition can message you in a variety of ways. When I'm unknowingly in a bad situation, mine literally punches me in the stomach. I feel a firm blow and know it's time to make an exit plan. Other, less urgent times, I get a thought or voice from nowhere or have a flash of inspiration. Pay attention to the cues your intuition provides. Be very aware of the things you experience and you'll learn to know when your intuition is warning you or telling you to go full steam ahead. Track it in a journal.

5 - Sleep on it.

  • Everyone has heard at one time or another that someone wants to “sleep” on a decision. It's a good idea. Many scientific breakthroughs and historic events came to the people from a dream. Ask yourself the question that needs an answer and decide that your intuition will tell you how to resolve it as you sleep. Have a paper and pencil on the bed stand to record the answer upon awakening or you'll forget it.

Intuition can be honed like any skill. Everyone has the ability to use this extra sensory perception, so there's nothing magical about it. It's like communicating. Everyone has the ability to communicate in one fashion or another. The more you hone your ability, the better you'll be at it.
