Humans are goal-driven. Most of us need a clear direction to feel safe and well.
But how do you know you are setting the right goals?
Goals must be intrinsically motivated. Otherwise, you are losing valuable time and energy heading in the wrong direction. Following a clear intuition to make crucial decisions can be a game-changer. As a result, being able to follow your gut feeling is a valuable skill. Nowadays, more people than ever have difficulties listening to their intuition. The constant digital distraction might be one reason.
How do you follow your intuition to improve your decision-making ability?
First of all, you need to create space. Your intuition is more like a whisper while your cognitive mind is screaming at you. Meditation is a powerful method to improve your intuitive listening skills.
During meditation, your brain changes its operating mode from beta to alpha waves. As a result, you are in a deeply relaxed state and more receptive to intuitive insights. One powerful technique is to ask yourself specific questions like: “What direction would I like to take next in my life?.” Listen to emerging insights.
Often your intuitive voice might sound as if you are making things up. Ignore this impression. Focus instead on the transferred information. After finishing meditating write down your insights. Practice your intuition as often as possible. This is how you will strengthen it.
