Wouldn’t it be cool to know and I mean know with strong certainty, precisely what your body needs in any given moment?
What to eat and drink.
Whether to be active or take some rest.
What vitamin or mineral supplement to buy, how much to take and how often.
I can access this information daily and I use it with pleasure to optimise my health and well-being.
I respond without question to sometimes unusual urges like; having some peanut butter on celery, drinking a cup of licorice, fennel and peppermint tea or dropping my long-held habit of eating as soon as I wake and drinking a green tea or water with lemon instead.
And yes, I still eat cake, chocolate and drink a glass of wine now and again. These indulgences are actually good for us in small doses.
So how do I know what my body needs to keep it functioning well?
It’s a skill we all naturally posses, it’s just that sometimes we get confused and fail to distinguish between healthy and unhealthy cravings and between unconscious habit and conscious choice. Here’s what I’d recommend:
Three Steps to Access Your Intuition
Step One – Meditate
Learn how to be still and go within because this is where you will access your quiet inner voice and become familiar with the language it uses.
I know it’s hard to create a meditation practice, heck, it took me ten years to begin mine.
All I can say is, it’s not that hard once you realise that this one action will transform your life in many ways. Do it first thing in the morning for just ten minutes to start with. Set the intention to simply sit still and pay attention to your breath and the sounds you can hear around you.
Like any other activity worth learning, practice might not make perfect, but it will make you better. In just one week of daily meditation you’ll notice some amazing improvements in your focus and motivation.
Step Two – Determine your personal intuitive signals
We each have our own personal intuitive style. My mode of guidance is physical sensation and what I call a ‘knowing’. I just suddenly know what I need and then I check in with my body to confirm the hunch.
The way I check in is to ask a clear and direct question like; “Would green tea be beneficial now?” I then wait for a buzz of energy to rise upwards in the region between my navel and heart. If the answer is ‘yes’, the energy vibrates upwards and if the answer is ‘no’ I feel energy draining away or simply an absence of any sensation.
You might hear or see a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ in your mind or heart, see an image of the optimal choice in your mind’s eye or receive any number of stimuli particular to your own signature style.
After a while, your daily meditation will enable you to instantly go within and access your inner voice whether you’re standing before an open fridge in your kitchen or perusing the shelves in your local supermarket.
I now walk through the aisles of my local store, tuning into the produce and gauging whether it’s good to buy or not. Those perfect looking strawberries often get a ‘no’ from my intuition, and I select the perfect butternut pumpkin simply by asking my guidance to locate it among the other identical looking specimens. It works!
Step Three – Practice, practice, practice and TRUST
My intuitive abilities are now in their ninth year of development and I wouldn’t have the level of confidence I now have in them if not for all those years of practice and a devotion to building my own trust in their accuracy.
It all began for me as a student of kinesiology in 2007 when I learned how to muscle test myself and others to gain information about muscle and meridian function, emotional states and nutritional requirements. It only took me a couple of years of practicing kinesiology with people to realise there was another layer of innate wisdom bubbling just beneath the surface and ironically enough, being masked by my reliance on muscle testing.
Once I accessed my own unique intuitive style and then spent five or six years honing it and learning to trust in it, my life improved in so many ways and began to flow with so much more grace and ease.
It needn’t take you this long to develop your intuition.
