The Power of Intuition and 5 Easy Ways to Tune in

“Intuition is perception via the unconscious that brings forth ideas, images, new possibilities and ways out of blocked situations.” ~ Carl Jung

Let’s take a scenario where you are going to purchase a house, and on entering that space something tells you that it’s not meant to be, something doesn’t feel right about that space – that is your intuition telling you not to opt for the house.

In spite of this inner knowing, we seek external validation – either out of habit, conditioning or belief system – and opinions which creates an unnerving conflict within. It is a sudden flash of clarity and complete awareness.   

Instead, if we turned our attention inwards and really listened to that ‘gut feeling’ ‘inner voice’, we will, on most occasions, find the answers we seek.

Our intuition is a powerful energy that connects us with the Cosmic forces that encompass us. It is a direct message from above, showing you the way in times of darkness, doubts, making choices or challenging times. If you are attuned to your intuitive power, it will always remain your guiding light. Intuition is like the cosmic GPS, helping us navigate our path through life.

We lose our intuitive perception when we are caught up in the hustle and bustle of life in our ordinary state of consciousness. We’re continuously moving from one thought to another, from one job to another, operating from a place of rationality and logic – leaving no space for sudden flashes of truth to emerge that can have a life altering experience. 

Anne Lamott stated, “You get your intuition back when you make space for it, when you stop the chattering of the rational mind. The rational mind doesn’t nourish you. You assume that it gives you the truth, because the rational mind is the golden calf that this culture worships, but this is not true. Rationality squeezes out much that is rich and juicy and fascinating.”

The connection between imagination, inspiration and intuition

A beautiful example is of the Indian Mathematician, Srinivasa Ramanujan, who relied strongly on his intuition and insights to gain mathematical prowess. He was gifted with this intuitive ability to come up with mathematical formulas no one would have the imagination to concoct them. 

Rudolf Steiner, the founder of anthroposophy, connected imagination, inspiration, and intuition as a form of spiritual scaffolding. When our thoughts/perceptions (Imagination) take shape and are directed toward a path or goal (Inspiration) and finally, becomes one with the universal thought and that union/amalgamation is called Intuition.
