The topic of intuition has been on my mind. Honestly, it’s been on my mind on overload! Intuition can be defined as a hunch or unjustified belief. It’s a deep feeling that’s unexplainable. At times, I have ignored this hunch. However, as I continue my journey in self-development, I can say that tapping into my intuition has been vital. That ‘feeling’ that you experience is a strong emotion. Often times, your inner voice is right. That is your intuition.
Have you had moments where an inner voice is heard? Intuition is based on past experiences and knowledge. According to researchers at Leeds University, intuition is a ‘gut’ feeling and it shouldn’t be ignored. On the contrary, you should stop and play close attention. Whatever the voice is telling you, it’s instinctual and might improve your decision-making.
I have taught dance for thousands of students. One of the first things I say is “Listen to your body.” I say this repeatedly because my students know their body more than I do. They know how far to push themselves and when they should stop. As a teacher and student, I have experienced harsh demands physically and mentally. In life, there are challenges and accomplishments. It’s natural for us to complain and simply not let our intuition guide us.
Here are some simple ways to tune into your intuition:
Take moments in bliss.
Write down your thoughts.
