How To Be More Intuitive

This Mind Exercise* is about how to be more intuitive. Let’s start with the definition of intuition that I like to use:

“Intuition is an inner knowing available to us when all of the senses, known and unknown are balanced and able to receive information that is usually filtered out by the conscious mind.”

How to Be More Intuitive

*from the Learning in the New Paradigm Series by Rheanni Lightwater: Games to retrain your mind to focus on” balance” or  “joy,” rather than “perfection.”

To have your own experience with how to be more intuitive, let’s go through this simple series of Intuitive Learning Circles. They’ve been put together to help you relax, contemplate the nature of intuition and integrate the information.

Mind Body Integration

Mind Body IntegrationThe brain and body communicate through different channels when a part of you is crossed over the center of your body. If you feel resistant or stuck, cross or uncross a hand or foot over the midline of your body and go back to the Circle, breathing patiently. See if your thinking starts to move again. Let negative self-talk go by breathing through it.

Simply read the instructions and then follow through on the directions while you gaze softly at each Circle.

Step One: Slow down. Stop being in such a hurry.

It will help to imagine you can bring all the energy into focus at the center, open space of each Intuitive Learning Circle.


Step Two: With so much going on, it’s easy to be distracted and confused by everything that’s going on around you. Your senses may have gotten knocked out of balance and that can have a negative effect on balanced intuition.

Gaze softly at this Reiki Chakra Key and take a minute or two to help you get your bearings again. Notice your surroundings, the time, remember how old you are, etc.


Step Three: You may also be having a difficult time adjusting to all the significant environmental changes that are taking place. Sudden reversals, blockages and changes in momentum can cause the subtle energy fields to react in unusual ways.

As you look at this Key, do you notice any rough glitches or reversed energies going on? Relax with it for a few minutes until things smooth out. You can repair any jagged or disjointed glitches in your sensory system.


Step Four: Clear Intuition is a balance between all of the senses. You can consciously balance your senses to enhance intuition and receive clear inner guidance.
Use this Circle to let your senses get balanced. Some may be turned up too high and some too low. You can adjust them like a radio dial until it feels just right.

Once you’ve done that, bring the energy in toward the center again.


Step Five: Clear intuition is an internal communication. Focus in on your heart center and let the energy get balanced and open there.

It may take a minute or two to connect with the Light of your True Source. Take all the time that you need.


Step Six: Make sure you’re centered and balanced in your solar plexus as well (your solar plexus is that soft area in the front where your ribs go up).

The correction is made when you can palpably feel a greater sense of calm and peace in that area.


Step Seven: In this quiet and more centered place, ask a simple question that you want guidance about. Listen for the answer.

What is your inner guidance?

Intuition is simple and straightforward, so if you’re getting a big convoluted answer, that probably isn’t intuition. Be patient and go through the exercise again.

Once you get a heartfelt answer, congratulations! You have accessed your intuition! You might want to make a note of what you came up with. The critical mind often doesn’t like to remember the quieter, gentler voice of intuition.

Extra-intuitive Activities

The following extra-intuitive activities aren’t required, but they can really help you excel in creating the very best of your talents, interests and passions…

Future Pacing

In our hypnotherapy and energy medicine classes, we talk about the importance of future pacing. What is that?

Future pacing is a way to deepen the effects of any mind body healing by projecting a preferred outcome into the future. Let’s use that idea to solidify what you’ve just learned about how to be more intuitive.

Intuition out of balanceRemember that when intuition is out of balance, it tries to define “perfection” in extremes, which gives rise to fantasy, hallucination and wishful thinking. 

Let’s head that kind of intuition off at the pass right now!

Use these symbols and positive affirmations from The Essential Human to access the very best qualities to nurture your intuitive talents.

“I close the door on turmoil, panic and chaos. I now access serenity and calm.”


“I release my focus on conflict. I now open to peaceful and prosperous solutions.”


“I close the doors in my mind that lead to grumpy, hopeless, sarcastic or cynical behavior. I am now confident and resolute.”


“I release impatience, distractions and confusion. My actions now have purpose.”


Imagine that you can access your beneficial karma for being more intuitive. Gather all your good deeds in the center, blank area of this Circle.

“I access my beneficial karma for actualizing balanced and helpful intuition.”

“I plant new karmic seeds for the conditions I need to be more intuitive and to accomplish my heartfelt goals.” 


The mind intuitively appreciates closure. Let’s get present and grounded as we complete this mind exercise.

Place both feet on the floor and put your hands on your knees if you can. Gaze softly at the Circle and repeat the affirmation until you feel your body has fully settled in the present.

“I am grounded in the present.”


Ask yourself:

How will it feel to access my intuition in the future?

What about later today or tomorrow?

A month from now?

How does it feel a year from now?



Empower your Divine Connection through gratitude. Thank yourself for taking the time today to learn how to be more intuitive – a gift that will make your life a whole lot better!

Connect with the grail of gratitude located in your heart.

“I use my intuition correctly to understand what’s in my highest good.”
