Sometimes you have a lot of thinking to do.  Suddenly thinking doesn’t get you anywhere anymore, so you stop thinking and you go out and take a few deep breaths or you go out into nature and sit under a tree. Then just like a light bulb turning on, an idea pops into your head and your gut reacts to it.  This is your intuition.   Many people don’t realize that when they need to go for a walk or go for some fresh air it is their intuition telling them to do so.  Telling them they need to get out into nature to breathe and this will help to think clearly.

Intuition is not arrived at by thinking nor by logic.  It’s arrived at in a way that we cannot explain.  It is closely related to creativity and inspiration.  It is given to you; a gift.  It is often described as listening to your gut because it comes from deep inside you.

It’s vital for every human being to contact that place within, where intuition arises. Otherwise you are confined to the limitations of your conceptual mind, because your life is just repetitive and no new ideas can come.  If it’s a fresh and new idea, it comes from a place where all creativity arises – which ultimately is this place deep within your heart center. That’s where intuition arises. Where creativity and inspiration come from.  If you can be still even for a moment, then there is a possibility that some intuitive thought arises  and all of a sudden you say something and surprise yourself.   Maybe somebody needs your help or advice, and rather than thinking “I should be helping that person?” You just become still and listen.  Suddenly you find yourself saying something; a deeper intelligence comes to your mind. That is your intuition.

The easiest way to develop intuition is to develop the ability to be still at times.  Rather than “trying” to develop intuition, go to the place where all intuition arises.  You don’t need to worry about becoming more intuitive if you focus more on being still or quiet.  Not necessarily for long periods of time, but throughout the day take a few minutes and be still.  After awhile it will become second nature to you and you won’t even realize you are doing it.
