Intuition – Exercises
Exercise 1: From intellect to intuition
This is an exercise, which aims on learning to distinguish between intellect and intuition. Take as a continuous meditation to learn to distinguish between the intellect, between our ideas of how things should be, and intuition, our true inner voice, to learn to distinguish between the false and the real, between the true and the artificial.
Exercise 2: Learning to distinguish between listening to the intuition and to be directed by outer forces
This is an exercise that aims at learning to be aware when you allow yourselves to be directed by outer forces and when you allow yourself to listen to your intuition. Be continuously aware in different situations between when you allow yourself to be directed by other people’s ideas, opinions and expectations and when you allow yourself to be guided from within by listening to your own intuition, to your own true inner voice, to your own inner source of love, truth and wisdom, to Existence within yourself.
Exercise 3: To invite guidance
When you are in a cross road in life or in situations when you need guidance, take as a conscious exercise to ask you intuition a question and ask for guidance and clarity. The answer may not come directly, but you will always receive an answer.
Exercise 4: Make a painting of intuition
This meditation aims at painting a picture in colour and form of your experience of intuition.
If you do this meditation together with a partner, you can discuss your painting with your partner.
Exercise 5: Listen to your heart
To continuously be in contact with your heart and with your intuition, you can ask the following four questions in different situations for example when you have to make a choice or when you are going to take a new step:
1. Will I love myself if I do this for example if I take this new step, if I chose this or if I say this.
2. Will I feel courageous?
3. Is it beautiful for me?
4. Can it be simplified in any way?
Exercise 6: Intuition – taking creative decisions.
Intuition is about taking creative decisions. Take as an exercise to take a conscious decision during a whole day to allow your intuition, your inner source of love, trust and wisdom, to guide you through the day to take creative decisions.
Exercise 7: Making a energy reading of a partners heart in the form of a flower
This is an exercise in intuition and healing, where you sit facing a partner and make an energy reading of the partner’s heart in the form of a flower.
Begin this exercise by turning your attention within yourself and come in contact with you own heart. When you have come in contact with your own heart, begin to tune in with your partners heart and describe the partner’s heart in the form of a flower. Describe in words what kind of flower it is, the quality of the flower, the colour of the flower and the surroundings in which the flower grows.
Stay continuously in contact with your own heart during this exercise and be aware of how the contact from heart to heart plus the communication through words creates healing. When you and your partner has read each others hearts, take a moment to share how it felt to have your heart read and how the communication from heart to heart crates healing.
Exercise 8: Intuition-journal
To become more aware about how your intuition is developing, take a decision to write an intuition-journal every evening during one month. When you wake up in the morning, remember that this is a new opportunity to develop your intuition. Take a conscious decision in your heart that today you are going to be aware and to trust your intuition during all the activities of the day. Be continuously aware during the day about the difference between being in contact with yourself and your intuition and not being in contact with your intuition.
Be grateful in the evening for everything that has happened during the day, since both positive and negative experiences are teachers on the way to develop intuition. Write an intuition-journal in the evening and write shortly during 10-15 minutes about when you managed and when you did not manage to trust your intuition during the day. Do not judge and evaluate whether you managed or did not manage to trust your intuition, but let the intuition-journal be a way to simply be aware and develop your intuition.
Exercise 9: Become friend with a tree
On an unconscious level, trees are already in contact with Existence. With their roots deeply rooted in the earth and with their branches reaching towards the sky, trees have their own innate wisdom.
A meditation exercise you can do to develop your intuition is to become friend with a tree. Sit under the tree and ask the tree questions and listen within to your own intuition for the answers that you receive.
Exercise 10: To see what the Whole wants
This is an exercise to let go and to see what the Whole wants in a certain issue. When you have compared the pros and cons on a certain issue, then leave the issue to the intuition, to the inner source of love, truth and wisdom, to the voice of Existence within, and see what the Whole wants concerning this issue.
Sometimes Existence responds immediately and sometimes it takes some time before Existence is ready to respond. But you will always receive an answer in exactly the right time. Sometimes I have struggled to get something to happen, but it was first when I let go that it happened by itself. Sometimes things are not meant to happen either. It is a question of timing. It is a question of when the time is ripe. It is a question of trust to the Whole.
