I’ve written about the power of intuition since 2015 when I wrote an article on the Finerminds (Mindvalley) blog about developing your intuitive mind and the power of intuition and overcoming grief. Intuition is a powerful and often overlooked tool that can guide us in decision-making, problem-solving, entrepreneurship, creative endeavours and even overcoming tragedy and grief. It manifests in various forms, including gut feelings, instincts, and insightful thoughts. These different forms of intuition complement each other and provide unique insights that can benefit us in different situations.
“Through intuition, we grasp the flow of change and dynamism present in the universe. We therefore discover, and intuition becomes a catalyst for holistic wealth.”
Several practical strategies and techniques can be employed to nurture and strengthen intuition. These include mindfulness practices like meditation and deep breathing, intuitive journaling, engaging in creative pursuits, paying attention to physical sensations, and respecting initial intuitive reactions. Creating a quiet space for reflection and drawing from past experiences also contribute to the development of intuition.
Mindfulness, self-awareness, and inner reflection are essential in connecting with our intuition. Mindfulness practices help us clear our minds and recognize intuitive signals, while self-awareness allows us to distinguish between genuine intuition and external influences. Inner reflection fosters self-discovery and aligns us with our true selves, enhancing our intuitive abilities.
Unleashing the Power of Intuition
Exercise and activities can help individuals tap into their intuition. These include focusing on breath during meditation, intuitive journaling, body scan meditation, contemplating symbols, mindful walks, and engaging in artistic expression. It’s essential to approach these exercises with an open mindset and trust the unique insights that arise.
Intuition plays a significant role in decision-making and problem-solving. It enables faster decision-making, provides a holistic perspective, integrates tacit knowledge, stimulates creative problem-solving, aligns with emotions and values, and aids in risk assessment. It should be balanced with rational thinking to create a robust decision-making process.
Intuition enhances idea generation, encourages unconventional thinking, helps recognize opportunities, facilitates problem-solving, enhances the creative process, embraces risk and uncertainty, and promotes empathy and user-centric innovation. By trusting our intuitive impulses, we can tap into our creative potential and drive innovation in various areas of life.
Intuition is a powerful inner guidance system that, when tapped into and trusted, can lead to better decision-making, personal growth, and creative expression. By recognizing the different forms of intuition, nurturing and strengthening our connection to it, and applying it in various aspects of life, we can unlock its potential and live a more fulfilling and authentic existence.
“When you listen to your intuition and it sparks your creativity, it allows you to become energized to find your purpose. Your purpose cannot be manifested with dormant intuition—you have to reawaken active intuition to be in tune with your purpose. This is why active intuition is like an ignition: it generates that spark—the energy needed to channel holistic wealth.”
In the new Holistic Wealth Expanded and Updated book, there’s an entire Chapter on Intuition and a discussion on the difference between active and dormant intuition. Active intuition is necessary in terms of living a purposeful life. In this episode of the Holistic Wealth podcast on unleashing the power of intuition you will learn:
