Developing intuition can be a great benefit to you. Have you had the experience where you know or sense something for no valid reason, then later find out you were right?
Have you ever changed the way you drove to work, only to find out you had avoided a seven car pile-up on the freeway? This is intuition or perceptive insight in operation.
It is an immediate and intuitive recognition via your senses, and it utilizes the psychic senses and the sub-conscious mind. Most people have heard of intuition and have experienced it
It is not only women who have this gift. If you work with specific crystals you may begin cultivating intuition and also develop a deeper spiritual connection.
One way to define intuition is, that it is when you know or sense something, yet there is no valid reason for you to believe that what you 'know' is real.
The word intuition comes from the Latin word 'intueri', which means to look inside or contemplate. You have this strong 'gut' feeling that what you are feeling is real.
Another way to define intuition is that it is an instinctive and unconscious knowing. The more you concentrate on developing intuition, then the more this knowing or belief in what is coming through will strengthen.
It is believed to be connected with the right hemisphere of the brain. It is an automatic system in use, and it is a psychic ability that everyone has in varying degrees.
You may make choices for no valid reason other than you 'believe. that this is the thing to do. The intensity of this communication grows and its energy cannot be ignored, as it becomes totally automatic.
Perceptive insight is a phrase used to describe intuition. This refers to immediate or intuitive recognition or understanding of what is happening as you use your senses.
Part of it comes from your own sub-conscious, and many are not aware that the senses you are using are psychic senses. A lovely Amethyst Crystal Cluster in the room may aid you to develop this sense.
As you continue developing intuition, you may find that ideas float into your head, and you know things you have no way of knowing.
If you keep some of the crystals on the list in your vicinity, you may find your intuition begins to work more quickly and more accurately.
Trusting your intuition may aid your life overall, and also help to develop your other psychic powers. Throughout the day thoughts flow into your head.
As you feel these thoughts come, put your awareness deliberately onto the thought. Think about what it is about and if it is linked to any specific thing happening in your life.
Few people know that there is an intuition power, and that some even call it psychic intuition. But can you discover how to be psychic?
You all have intuition to a greater or lesser degree, but not all of you recognize that it is a psychic power. Many people think of psychic abilities as being something out of the ordinary.
Do you want to discover how to develop your intuition further and really put it to work in your life? One way is to take classes to develop any sort of psychic gifts, including your intuition.
These classes may assist you by aiding you to develop clairaudience aka psychic hearing, clairvoyance and clairsentience aka clear feeling as well as other psychic gifts.
Developing intuition is something that those of either sex can do, even though the phrase women's intuition is often used. While for men this may be a bit off putting, both men and women can develop a deeper spiritual connection.
So if you are a man and reading this, allow yourself to recognize that the intuition power is not exclusive to women.
Begin by sitting quietly in silence for a few minutes each day. Quieten your mind and just allow the thoughts in your head to slowly stop.
To help you with developing intuition, hold crystals in your hand as you meditate. For example a lovely piece of deep Blue Dumortierite is very powerful to aid you.
Allow your mind to see a blank screen in front of you. This stillness in your mind is the key to using intuition. As you sit in stillness you may find that ideas or thoughts float into your mind.
Once you have finished meditating continue to use these crystals throughout the day.
There are quite a few healing crystals for you to choose, and there are a number of ways to use these stones, but just make sure that you keep them within your aura.
This is easy to achieve by either wearing them as crystal jewelry, putting one or more crystal stones in your pocket, or sitting a piece close to you during the day.
Accessing your intuition is very simple, as once you begin to use it, the process happens automatically. As intuition is related to gut feelings, using solar plexus chakra and sacral chakra stones will also assist the process.
To fire the imagination, so that it may assist with developing imaginatively inspired thoughts via your intuition, use Citrine Crystals.
As you continue developing intuition, and the more that you notice what is happening within your body, the more these feeling will grow stronger.
You will have that gut feeling about something more frequently. Simple recognition of these feelings, will allow the spirit guides who are working with you to know that you are open to continuous messages.
As you begin regularly accessing your intuition this gift will begin to deliver clearer messages to you.
To develop any of the psychic gifts, meditation is important. During successful meditation your brain waves slow, as their rhythm changes from the beta wave, of normal day to day activities, to the slower alpha wave.
Two specific areas of the brain, the Amygdala and the Anterior Cingulate Cortex, are said to be connected with developing any psychic abilities, including developing intuition.
Using Isochronic Tones is effective to aid the development of your intuition, because it works by encouraging these areas of the brain to entrain with the new rhythms that are introduced.
As your mind chatter stops, and you go deeper into the meditative state, you may find that these gifts develop more easily. It is often during meditation that your guides will communicate with you.
If you have not previously made contact with your guides, working with your spirit guides may help to develop this gift.
Tuning in to this small voice is part of the process of developing intuition and the frequency and clarity of the messages coming to you increase once you begin to work with this gift.
Intuition is an inner voice that communicates with you and gives you knowledge that you have no way of knowing any other way.
This gift is about "listening" to one of your senses, your feelings, and noticing what is being communicated by your spirit guides by using this method.
Albert Einstein was a great believer in intuition, and its power to aid discovery. You can stimulate inspiration through using your intuition, as you allow the flow of your imagination that can be aroused through your intuition.
During your daily meditation hold one of the crystals mentioned on this page in your hand. The addition of crystals like pieces of blue Aquamarine Stones may aid the process.
Most of you already use intuition, but you may not be aware that it has the capacity to stimulate inspiration within your daily activities.
As you become aware of its potential and begin enhancing your creativity, the simple belief and gratitude you feel may accelerate the process. Inspired thoughts are believed to in many cases to come from your intuition.
As with developing many other psychic gifts, meditation is a very important part of the process.
Doing a psychic meditation on a regular basis has the capacity to develop intuition along with many other psychic powers or gifts. Using a guided meditation may be helpful to help you to get started.
Using a recorded meditation that guides you to relax, and that has beautiful background music, can aid you to relax deeply.
This may help you to learn how to get to the point where you can do in-depth meditation, aimed at developing intuition or other psychic abilities.
Although this is a major part of the process of developing intuition, your method of thinking is also an important issue. The Seven Laws of Attraction have the ability to help you in this endeavor.
Not only can this process help you to develop psychic gifts, but it also has the potential to manifest desires. You need to have a confident expectation that you will achieve what it is you want.
As you meditate on a daily basis, ensure that you keep what you want to achieve, clearly in your mind. Concentrate on your goal of developing intuition to aid the process.
The clearer you keep in your mind what it is you want, the more likely it is that you will achieve it. The stronger your belief is, the more likely it is that you get it.
Lastly, feel sincere gratitude that you have been given what you wanted! This attitude of gratitude is the final key that will unlock what you want.
We live in age where many of us travel regularly, and by different modes of transport. Often you hear of serious car, plane or train accidents that are fatal to the people involved.
If you follow your intuition, you may find that you take a different route than you intended to go, and later you discover you avoided some sort of serious accident.
Warnings may also be about a situation or a person, or about what this person may want you to do within a situation.
If you follow your intuition as often as possible it will assist you, as the road to intuition is a lot about being awake to and aware of the communications you are hearing.
The result of developing intuition is such a benefit in your life that it is worth giving special effort to achieving this. Intuition exists in most of you already, and women in particular are aware that you are able to make use of it.
If you develop your intuition further you may be able to make your life more creative and happier. As you embrace this newly inspired way of thinking your life will be a richer for the experience.

The chakra located in the forehead is known as the third eye, and stones that stimulate this area have the most impact when you are developing intuition.
