Learning to sense your intuition can be tricky but it is not as hard as you may think. Before you can sense it, you need to first believe that you have an intuition. Next, you need to understand what it is.

What is intuition?

What does intuition mean? The meaning of intuition often means a knowing feeling. According to, the definition of intuition is “direct perception of truth, fact, etc., independent of any reasoning process.”

In specific terms, your intuition is a part of your higher senses that allows your body to synthesize emotional energy codes in a linear pattern. This process allows your conscious mind to process the emotional energy codes, which in turn gives you the perception of feelings.

Your intuition is a knowingness inside you that comes without explanation or proof. This knowingness takes place at the cellular level and beyond. Some of us like to refer to it as the “gut feeling.” In other words, your intuition is your subconscious bringing forth a sense of knowing into your conscious awareness by way of feeling or thought. It is important to know that your intuition is not limited to the area of your gut, because it sometimes can come from within every cell of your body.

How to sense and develop your intuition

Learning to sense your intuition can be hard because it is sometime difficult to tell if it is your intuition or ego that you are sensing. To make sure it is your intuition that you are sensing, you need to know how it feels when it is communicating to you. This process is very important for developing your intuition. Your intuition will usually communicate to you in a subtle way. A lot of the time, it will communicate to you when something is wrong or a bad event is about to occur.

Try to remember a negative experience that you had in the past. You may want to choose a negative experience that occurred not too long ago. Before the negative experience happened, did you remember a feeling within that urged you in a subtle way not to take action? This feeling will usually feel like something is not right. Try to remember exactly how it feels. This feeling is usually your intuition telling you not to take action because something bad may happen.

As you think back to your negative experience, try to remember all the details before and after the experience. Think about how your intuitive feelings were communicating to you. Once you learn how to sense your intuition, the next time it tries to tell you something, you will know that it is your intuition and not your ego or some other entity.

The simple technique that I mentioned above may or may not work for you. If it does, keep practicing the technique because it will strengthen the connection to your intuitive feelings. The next time you are about to go somewhere and you feel this subtle urge inside you that appears without explanation or proof telling you not to go, you may want to think twice about not going.

If you do go and something bad happens, reflect back to the exact moment that you felt the subtle urge and remember this exact feeling. After a few times of doing this, you will know when your intuition is communicating to you. Another thing that can help you strengthen your intuition is to use the previous technique to help you play guessing games.

Why you should learn to develop and strengthen your intuition

Your intuition plays an important role in your life because it is there to guide you to achieve your goals in life. By achieving your goals in life, you will feel happier and your life will feel like it is going somewhere instead of in circles. Once you become good at using your intuition, you can use it to help you find the right partner or friends.

When you first meet someone, try not to let your emotions run wild and try not to be nervous or fearful. Put yourself in the observer mode and then look at that person right in the eyes when you are about to shake his or her hand. With the help of your intuition, try to sense that person’s soul or vibe. If you feel a lot of negative intentions or negative energy coming from that person, you may want to stay away from him or her unless negative experiences are something that you enjoy.

If you want to strengthen your intuition beyond the techniques in this article, you need to learn how to increase your awareness.

You may also want to learn how to release painful emotions, because these negative emotions are great for weakening your intuition.

    Simple, yet very powerful. To me it seems almost obvious but often times it’s the small details that we overlook the most. I will definitely be placing more awareness on the subtle feelings. It mostly happens naturally meditation tho. Thanks a lot.
