3 Ways to Tune In and Trust

Do you ever notice that some people seem to have excellent instincts?  They make decisions quickly, and they somehow appear to always be the right ones.  Then again, there are others who seem to be a harried mess most of the time.  They live their lives in a bit of chaos, and things always appear to go “wrong” for them.  What if the solution to their problem was to just sit still in silence more often?  Seems crazy, right?  How could sitting around, doing nothing, produce actual results?  Well, the truth is stopping to tune in is a very productive use of time.  

Every time I’ve made, what I would consider, a mistake, it was because I didn’t take the time to stop, breathe, and tune in to my intuition.  I let outside sources guide me instead of going within, where all the answers literally are!

The meaning of intuition is the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning.  So, where does that come from?  It’s not logical, but it’s a knowing.  It’s a FEELING.  As spiritual beings having a human experience, our communication and interaction stems from emotions and feelings, not logic. 

We don’t have one mind.  We have three minds.  Our head, our heart and our gut.  Think about it…how many times have you heard “it just didn’t feel right in my gut,” “I am heart-broken,” or “my head says ‘yes’ but my heart says ‘no.’” We feel in our heart and gut, and we think with our brain.  Our three minds tell us what the truth is.  When something feels good inside our bodies, that is a definite “yes.”  However, if something doesn’t feel right, we feel that, too.  That’s intuition.  We must trust it.

I am blessed with the ability to hear my guidance as well.  As an intuitive, my connection comes in the sound of voices expressing words inside my head.  Sometimes, it’s as if someone is standing next to me whispering in my ear.  It’s always in my right ear.  I call them my angels.  For those who believe in it, they understand.  For those who don’t, it makes me sound insane.  All I know is that those voices in my head have been there for me in times when I really needed them, and I’ve made many positive decisions in my life because of them.  Do you ever hear voices?  Are you staying quiet enough for long enough to listen in? 

Our souls know everything!  We are being divinely guided by universal forces every second of every day of our lives!  The key is to be able to tune in to the messages we are receiving.  Have you ever been betrayed by a lover?  Deep down, did you know before the truth was revealed?  Almost every person I’ve ever spoken to has said they “knew.”  They may not have had proof, but DEEP DOWN (gut), they knew.  We know when things feel right, too.  Our hearts feel big and warm.

Wouldn’t it be great to dial up your intuition so that you could make better, quicker decisions in your life?  Wouldn’t it also be great to TRUST YOURSELF more and stop your second-guessing?


Sitting quietly for 15-20 minutes a day will literally change your life.  Sitting with your eyes closed, or staring at the flame of a candle, is all you need to do.  Listening for the sound of the birds outside, or the hum of air conditioner will keep your mind calm and still.  Do your best to keep it focused on the object you’re listening to.  You may start to get some ideas.  Let them come in.  That is your inner voice communicating with you. 

Tune In

Tune in to your body and figure out where you FEEL your intuition.  As I mentioned, we have three minds.  Personally, for me, when something feels good, I feel it in my heart, and it feels amazing!  I feel like I can fly!  I feel energized and excited.  But, when something doesn’t feel right, I get that knotted-up ball in the pit of my stomach feeling.  It feels awful.  That is how I know whether a decision is a yes or a no.  Start to become aware of where in your body you feel things, when you feel them, and what is happening at the time.  It’s such a powerful guidance system.

Keep a Pen and Paper on Your Night Stand

Keep a pen and paper on your night stand next to you while you sleep.  Our souls communicate with us in the middle of the night.  I have written more poetry in the middle of the night than in daylight.  I get bursts of brilliant ideas in the middle of the night.  Some nights, I wake up and need to write down paragraphs of thoughts and ideas.  When we slumber and our bodies and mind are at rest, we are the most receptive to receiving our messages.  If you wake up with something on your mind, write it down.  Then, look at it in the morning and either do something with it, or toss it after you’ve read it and acknowledged it. 

Keep up all three of these practices.  These steps will help you tune in to your intuition rapidly.  You’ll begin to FEEL your answers immediately.  In any and every situation, stay quiet a little longer than you normally would and allow yourself to listen in and feel for the answers.  Psychics, mediums, those who channel, angel readers, intuitive people (like me) are gifted, but everyone has the power to do what they do.  They were either born with or mastered the art of heightened awareness and intuition, but we all can do it.  We just need to listen in more, to tune in, and to trust.
