What Intrigues You?
This is a question I get asked quite often, and my responses are always the same; there are many ways you can strengthen your intuition, as it is not one-size-fits-all. Everyone’s intuitive abilities are unique, as is their experience and perspective in this World.
I believe that everyone has an intuition - some are stronger than others as some may even accept that they even have an internal guidance system that is managed by their soul. It's just a matter of tapping into it.
Included in this blog are ways that I have tried and still use to this day to strengthen my own intuition. Some may work for you, or some may not. As I had said, it is not one-size-fits-all.
But first, let's dive into what intuition is:
Google search of Intuition
We have been conditioned to stay within the lines. If you’re not normal, something’s wrong with you. You may even question your own sanity: Am I psychic, or am I crazy? Your first and bravest step into strengthening your intuition is acknowledgement and acceptance. This step will always be repeated – no matter how skilled or practiced you are, you will question yourself. This can be a good thing, though. This means you’re sane… well mostly. This means that you still have some rationality and reason. Too much doubt, however, can be difficult to bypass, and as I had mentioned, that is because we have been programmed for generations to stay within the lines of what society deems as normal, or even religiously acceptable.
Third Eye (Pineal Gland)
The 6th Chakra is the "all-seeing psychic eye", where our Higher Self perceives the World around us. This is the home of your intuitive senses. Your third eye rests within the pineal gland which is in the middle of your brain and has the makings of an actual third eye. Throughout ancient history, the pineal gland was very important, especially throughout ancient Egypt as it is the symbol for the God Horus.
Many are born with a calcified pineal gland or get through our upbringing. The sad reality is, if this continues and as evolution goes, soon we will be born without it all together. Many of the topics mentioned within this blog are great ways to help decalcify your pineal gland.
Chakras & Kundalini
It takes more than just working on your third eye or crown chakras – if you are not grounded, illusions or delusions can be perceived as psychic ability and send you through a catapult of negative experiences backed with poor judgement.
When your chakras are balanced and the flow is not restricted, is when your kundalini energy is able to surge through them. This increases your psychic ability, spiritual awareness, and creative expression. This is also a vital part of strengthening your intuition.
So now that we have tapped into what your intuition is, and where it rests within you, lets find out how to strengthen it...
Meditation isn't just amazing for strengthening your intuition and increasing your awareness - it is also wonderful for your mental, emotional, and spiritual health. You can dedicate your meditation on strengthening your intuition, as well as accompanying different tools such as crystals, divinational tools, candles, etc to apply more energy towards that focus.
Generational Reprogramming \ DNA Activation
This goes hand in hand with shadow work, as you face cyclic patterns that have kept you stuck within toxic experiences and subconscious habits that block our gifts, karmic rewards, and true authentic Self.
You know how they say; a gift is typically handed down through family generations. The same goes with skepticism, strict religious backgrounds, and fear of the unknown. Even if our parents are open to the New Age and spirituality, somewhere down the line someone imprinted a blockage within our genetic code that places obstacles or restriction in diving into our own divinity and spirituality. This may come as an array of difference experiences where the lesson is to learn to trust your intuition. As you resolve these karmic issues, you begin the process of DNA activation. DNA activation also coincides with kundalini awakening as well.
DNA activation is not a new concept as it has been around since ancient Egypt. Our DNA is the blueprint of life, and currently the average human only has access to about 3% of 2 strand double helix of DNA, but there are 22 other strands which science considers junk DNA. As you evolve, spiritually, you begin to activate those dormant strands, which not only help to strengthen your intuition, but also empower your abilities for manifestation and removes energetic blockages from fully experiencing our Higher Self.
Raising your vibrational frequency is a key element into increasing your psychic awareness and enhancing your gifts – and the best way to do that is through shadow work. This is the highest form of alchemy – transforming our shadow to light, to heal what pains us, and to discover the method behind our madness. This is how we rid our being from the gunk that is ancestrally imprinted within our souls, or stems from experiences from this life, and previous lifetimes of our own.
If you associate with a group of skeptics, hold onto toxic relationships, or if your social circle consists of friends who do not share your path in spirituality, then you could deter from it or slow your growth. Of course, it’s not healthy to cancel everyone out of your life because they don’t share your spiritual beliefs, or to isolate yourself, but you do need to limit your time and energy from too much of the 3rd dimensional humdrum.
You need a sacred space – alone or socially. You need time to yourself in a clean and quiet environment where you can practice, be alone with your thoughts, and find serenity. You also need to have likeminded and spiritually driven connections. Having this sense of acceptance and being able to relate to others on a more spiritual level will help you grow.
Healthy Habits & Life Style
To be a clear conduit for Source, you must have a clean mind, body, and soul. The very food you eat can lower your vibrational frequency and too much alcohol consumption can calcify your pineal gland. Your spiritual health not only depends on a healthy mind through meditation, but it also relies on a healthy vessel. You can be insanely gifted, but have certain bad habits that are toxic to the body which decrease your vibrational frequency and your psychic abilities, or hold you back from truly experiencing their pull power.
Some people often find that they can't sit still for too long in meditation, but find it is easier to harness their ability to meditate during a workout or a run around the block, or even within the wilderness.
Tarot, oracle cards, pendulums, runes, or most divination, is more than just fortune telling or seeking answers about our future. If you truly want to practice your intuitive abilities and take on divination, you will also dive into a journey of Self as well. Most divination teaches you self-awareness, as well as how to tap into different energies surrounding your past, present, and future. Through practice and dedication, you can increase your intuitive powers.
The vibrational frequency of crystals are typically fixed and they help re-calibrate ours. High vibrational crystals (such as selenite, celestite, or amethyst) raise our frequency to higher realms or dimensions where our guides, astral self or Higher Self and ancestral guides reside. Lower vibrational crystals are more grounding, such as red jasper, hematite or obsidian. You can use them within your chakra balancing, shadow work, or divination. Or you can use them all on their own.
Crystals associated with the third eye chakra are best for strengthening your intuitive abilities - these are typically clear or purple crystals which are the same color as that chakra. You can read more about the best crystals to use within the Chakra section of the website.
Practice, Practice, Practice
Just as you would work out to gain muscle, or study to gain knowledge, you need to also practice in order to gain intuitive strength.
I do plan on making future posts about many of the different ways mentioned here. I do suggest further researching what interests you and finding resources through books or the internet.
