“Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.
And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”

Steve Jobs

Seven Ways to be more intuitive:

1. Listen to your inner voice
This inner voice maybe thoughts, and it may be sensations from your body, especially the gut. It is very valuable to get to know how your body and your mind give you signals. Learn to decode them. Be particularly vigilant during the first hour after you wake in the morning for both positive and negative thought and body messages.

2. Spend time alone
Time alone and away from noise and distraction makes being intuitive easier. Exhaustion and stress makes it harder.

3. Be creative
Spend time making things or writing or whatever you can do creatively. The problem-solving, especially the need to improvise, helps to release your intuitive voice.

4. Be mindful
Practising mindfulness has become very popular. It gives you skills that help to avoid being distracted or upset by unwanted thoughts. It helps you to notice your surroundings and to get things into a better perspective.

5. Take notice
Noticing your surroundings helps with the vital sense of connection with the natural world and with other people. Without such connection it is hard to keep hold of our values and priorities, and of a balanced sense of who we are.

6. Nurture close relationships
Without friends, most people will be a shadow of their true selves. Everything will be harder. Especially spend time with people who are nurturing for you.

7. Play
It is easy to forget how to play as you get older. Doing things for fun, especially things with no other purpose helps us to find our freedom to be ourselves and escape from the pressures to conform.

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing”

George Bernard Shaw
