This the last in my seven-part series about intuition. I’m sure I’ll write about it again at some point. Meanwhile, you might want to review the earlier posts as well.
Even neuroscience has declared that intuition physically exists in our brain, in the emotional part of the forebrain. So, follow the feeling.
No matter how deep a study you make, what you really have to rely on is your own intuition, and when it comes down to it, you really don’t know what’s going to happen until you do it.

Eight ways to develop your intuition
1. Create the intention to use your intuition and the numerous techniques suggested in the previous posts by regularly reminding yourself, “I want to use my intuition.” And then simply use your intuition.
2. Constantly pay attention to and be on the lookout for the feeling or impression of a person or situation. It’s a moment-to-moment thing, a very spontaneous, subtle process. Listen and “feel in.”
3. Learn to lose your mind and come to your senses.
4. Trust the feelings and impressions you get. Don’t ignore them. Trust your inner voice. Look for, listen to, and don’t ignore this voice when it speaks.
5. Have the courage to act on your intuitive hits. The art of following through is a very important step. Learn how to always practice intuitive awareness and discernment. Begin using your intuition with the smaller issues and situations in your life and then gradually move on to the bigger ones.
6. Don’t be afraid to speak and follow what you “feel” and not just be a slave to what you “think.”
7. Act on your “feel” and not on your “think.” Follow the golden thread of subtle inspiration. Use inspiration and not perspiration to navigate through your life.
8. Monitor the process. Say to yourself: “I know this was an intuitive decision and I don’t know what is going to happen, so let’s check it out and see if it works.” To help you with this, keep an Intuitive Hunch Journal and monitor how often you are right.
Intuition helps one be more decisive, swift, clear, and accurate in decision-making.
Success is an inside job. Develop your intuitive muscles and be intuitively fit. Increase your intuitive intelligence. You’ll be amazed at how good you get at it and at how easy it is.
I hope the suggestions in this series of posts have been helpful to you. If you have any questions, please send them my way.
Cease trying to work things out with your mind. It will get you nowhere. Let your whole life be led by inspiration and intuition. Let your whole life be a revelation.
