Spend Time in Nature
If you’re feeling frazzled and find yourself screaming “Give me a sign!”, then take a hike. At the trailhead, put all challenges on hold and begin to notice the details of your surroundings. Is there frost on leaves, puddles in the mud, or deep afternoon light streaming through the trees? Compile the story of this habitat. Notice the harmony created through balance, absorb the peace. Consciously open up to any intuitive messages. The voice of intuition is quiet and confident, matching the balance created through harmony in nature.
Journal and Pen
Think of a challenge you have been facing. Sit with your journal and pen and write that challenge at the top of the page. Sit for a moment with that question in mind, slowly allowing space for any intuitive messages. Then, just start writing. Let all the thoughts and imaginings out on the page. Your intuitive voice has space for expression when the path once blocked by emotion or resistance is cleared. When you have no more words, step away from the page. Come back to the writing later that day or even in a few days. With a fresh perspective you will notice parts of the context directed at releasing emotion and other parts uncovering truth and inspiration.
As we sit in meditation, we are actively releasing resistance and replenishing our energy. This act of self care sets the foundation for clear communication with our intuition. We may notice messages on how to heal, our next steps, when to make a change, or information on how to unwind a challenge.
Meditation, journaling, and spending time in nature give us the opportunity to create direct communication with our intuition. When we need a little more help, divination tools are a great resource. Here are my favorites:
If you’re not sure which divination tool is right for you, go to a metaphysical bookstore that you love. Wander the isles and notice what draws your attention. Purchase the book or deck or crystal, go home and explore how it supports you. Repeat this process whenever you are ready for more information, your next steps!
A Supportive Community
Share your journey in developing your intuition with friends who love and support you. They can help sort through your doubts finally helping you to identify your information. Sharing information is validating when we have a friend who is in agreement with our learning process. It allows us to gradually trust ourselves in a deeper manner, developing confidence. They may even offer tips on how they identify their intuition, too.
A Good Consultant
Life a little too sticky? Information coming from all angles? That is a great time to call in a little extra help from the professionals. Schedule your appointment with your favorite Psychic Medium, Astrologer, Tarot Reader, or whoever is a good match for your interests. Make sure they are focused on getting you information that is helpful for your development, with options to help you make informed decisions.

What if I misunderstand my intuition’s message?
Oh! This is most certainly going to happen.
A bunch of years ago I wanted to learn how to become savvy in the stock market. One day, I heard a message from my intuition: The stock from a coffee company on the East Coast was going to soar in the next few months. Being such a novice in the field, I was wary of this message. I didn’t invest. Over the next year, I started to notice reports on the news about the growth of this company. I missed an opportunity for monetary growth. Bummer. However, to this day I can recall the sound and feeling of that message. Through this experience, I really learned to identify the vibration of my intuition.
