5 Ways to Strengthen Your Intuition!
by Janice Smart on Jun 19, 2022
Have you ever had a gut feeling about something? This is known as your intuition - a feeling of “just knowing” something, without being able to put a finger on why or how.
Being in touch with your intuition can help you make important decisions, create success in your life and move forward in the right direction. Your intuition is like a mental muscle - it can be strengthened and developed over time with the right mindset.

Meditating regularly can help you switch off and tune into your body. This gives you the perfect opportunity to sit with your intuition, and pay attention to what your subconscious mind is telling you.
Meditation doesn’t have to be hard work. It can be as simple as sitting peacefully for 5 minutes without any distractions - or if you struggle to sit in silence, try a guided meditation instead.
Consult oracle cards
Tarot decks and oracle cards can be a great way to develop your intuition. Instead of consulting a guidebook, try interpreting the cards messages for yourself and see what comes to the surface.
Oracle cards can be used to answer your questions, and provide clarity around certain situations or challenges you may be facing. You can read our beginners guide to using oracle cards here to learn more.
Spend time in nature
Immersing yourself in nature can be a powerful way to open up your intuition. Remember, our ancestors used to rely on their intuition to keep them safe from the elements, predators and other dangers!
Spending time in the outdoors away from technology can help your subconscious mind come alive - whether that’s a long walk by the beach with the sand between your toes, or a hike through the mountains surrounded by trees and waterfalls.
Start a journal
Engaging in creative activities such as journaling can help you quiet your logical brain, and allow your intuition to speak up. You can use your journal to ask specific questions, and tap into your intuition for guidance.
You may want to pair your journaling with some meditation or oracle cards, too. Read our guide to keeping a daily journal here!
Listen to your gut feeling
Finally, try to listen to your gut instinct as much as possible. If you notice a strong feeling to do something, or avoid something, try following that advice and see what happens. Following your intuition will reinforce that your subconscious mind really does know what’s best for you - giving you more confidence to trust yourself in the future.
