When my little sister was eight she decided she wanted to be a singer. She sang all the time around the house and she was awful. I laughed at her desire to be a singer because she was clearly so bad that nothing could make her any good. My mother didn’t laugh. She got her lessons with an opera singer who lived down the road. My sister went to her lessons every week.
She now possesses one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard.
This may seem like a strange way to start on the topic of INTUITION, but I want you to know that this is exactly the way intuition works too. My sister didn’t naturally have a beautiful singing voice. She uncovered it through practice and persistence.
And so it goes for intuition. In the twenty years I have been activating my own intuition these are the 3 big myths that need to be busted so we can get on with being the intuitive powerhouses we were born to be:
MYTH #1) Only some people have a sixth sense.
Not even. Everyone is intuitive. Everyone.
If you want it you’ve got to work for it. Sure, some people are born with the window to their intuition open more widely than others. But does it make them more gifted? No way. It just means that they don’t have to work as hard for it.
It’s inherited. Some professional six sensories talk about being second or third or 24th generation intuitives, as though that somehow gives them extra power.
You’re a multi-generational intuitive too. Just because none of the people you’re related to knew that they were doesn’t make it any less true. The advantage those who watched their mums and nanas practice their intuition has is the advantage of knowing it is possible.
If you have seen someone close to you do something then it is not foreign and strange. You don’t have to fight for that space in your brain that will permit the new and previously unknown. It just is.
MYTH #3) It should just come naturally.
Not so. My mother is an intuitive. But she didn’t know this when she was born. She didn’t even know it when she was twenty. She hardly believed it when she was forty, but by then she was excited enough about the possibility of it all, the wondrous, amazing possibility that she inhabited a benevolent universe that wanted to communicate with her, that she was willing to practice until she could do it well.
That’s exactly what she did, and as a young teenager I watched her as she practiced her awakening superpower. I observed how hard work and persistence activated this previously dormant aspect in her.
When I was 18 I decided that this was my path too. I wanted to activate my sixth sense and live my life through it. It took me a time to find my teacher but when I did I turned up every week and I did the work. And not long after that I started to get good at it, and then I got lucky and made my life’s work out of it.
My life’s work is pretty simple. I tell as many people as I can every day that they are naturally and innately intuitive, and that if they activate this part of themselves they will change their whole lives for the better because suddenly they will also know that they are part of a benevolent universe that is communicating with them all the time. It’s very simple really. You just have to approach it like any other muscle of the body.
Activating your intuition is like getting a six-pack. If you want ripped abs then you’re going to do whatever number of reps of whatever exercise you have to do to locate and work those muscles. Here’s an exercise you can start with immediately to get a ripped intuition.
At least five times today, when you make a decision, no matter how big or small, do this first. Stop. Close your eyes. Breathe in and out and visualize your breath as though it is moving in and out of your heart. This is the home of your intuitive knowing. Don’t think. Just breathe. Now open your eyes. You’ll know the intuited choice by the feeling attached to it. You’ll feel peaceful even if the answer surprises you.
You have a choice about whether or not you activate your intuition. But it is a choice you have. If no one has ever told you that you are an intuitive allow me to do so now. You are. You always have been. All the answers that you seek are within you. You simply need to start listening. Every single day.
