We all have some kind of internal instinct, some call it intuition, a sixth sense, or a strong feeling, that serves as a gentle nudging or quiet voice that guides us through our days. Like any ability, the more we practice and listen to it, the stronger it becomes.
Here are 4 practical and easy ways to start building and cultivating your personal intuition that can help you navigate your days.
While yoga has many health benefits as an exercise, it is also a wonderful way to quiet the mind and tune into your true nature. Gentle yoga poses and a couple of sequences can help get your body moving and mind relaxed to come into a more harmonious state. If you haven’t tried yoga yet, it easy to start. All you need is a favorite beginner’s practice, which can be found on YouTube or a DVD. Other items that can make your workout easier would be a yoga mat and yoga pants. Some top yoga mats include Manduka and Gaiamas well as popular yoga pant brands, such as Athleta and Fabletics.
Any chance you can spend in nature, can be used as a moment of reflection for prioritizing your goals. The softness and solitude that nature provides offer a wonderful backdrop to better get in touch with your senses. Being surrounded by nature, helps to block out other distractions and aids you in finding solutions and your inner direction. If you live in a city, sitting in the park and being surrounded by trees, can work just as as well! A little time in nature every day is a sure way to recharge your spiritual batteries. Some items you may want to bring on your outdoor adventure include a hydro flask, relaxing chair, or shoes made for trails.
