Following your intuition is like fine tuning a radio dial. Sometimes it comes in crystal clear and you are sure that it is the station you are searching for. But sometimes, if anything is the least bit different in the atmosphere, it can be fuzzy. If the interference is great enough, you may not even be sure you are getting the station you usually tune in to.
Fine tuning your intuition and connection to your spiritual team takes practice. Even after you are very competent at it, interference can still make your channel fuzzy, or sometimes not tuned in at all. Getting to know yourself and your subtle shifts in energy will help you understand whether or not your intuition is on point.
If you are a beginner, one way to begin tuning into yourself is to adopt any type of quiet or stillness practice to help reduce the noise we take in everyday in mainstream culture. It doesn’t have to be complicated, try just sitting in silence for 10-15 minutes a day. It will do wonders to de-clutter your mind.
Another way to get to know yourself is to work with your thoughts and feelings throughout the day. Begin to notice the subtle shifts in your energy, what caused them, how you want to work with them, and what they mean for you. Why did a certain situation or person get brought into your life? Why are you feeling angry or upset? Ask yourself as many questions as possible until you find the deeper answers you may not be aware of. Then take steps to address the answers you receive, in order to bring yourself back into alignment with what is healthiest for you.
Another helpful tip is to watch what you take in for entertainment. Be sure it is lifting your spirit or enhancing your life in some way. If it is draining you or making you shut down in any way, perhaps it’s not a great choice for entertainment for you. Entertainment is meant to elevate your mood, not deplete it.
Lastly, always test a message by asking if it is coming from your higher self or benevolent helpers, and ask up to three times. Most false prophets will back off after the first question. Does it feel true in your gut? Is it based on love? Even if it is a tough message to hear, does it serve a benevolent purpose, or is it coming from ego?
When learning to work with your intuition, you must practice. So start small. Begin with little questions and decisions. As you develop trust and a good relationship with both your intuition and benevolent team, you can move up to more serious questions. Start now and start small, and you will be building a firm foundation to make your best and highest choices for many years ahead.
