Hi everyone, it’s Krista. Recently I lost my connection to my intuition. Much of this is because I’ve been online constantly. I wasn’t feeling in touch, so I decided to be proactive about it.
For me, that connection to my gut, my higher self or knowing, helps me every day to live as close to alignment as possible. It’s subtle, but it makes life magical.
I dedicated time to reconnect with my inner self, and I’m going to share some of my advice to help you get your intuition back on track if you’ve been feeling disconnected, too.
7 Tips To Reconnect To Your Intuition:
1. Take a break from social media
As much as social media has the power to bring people together worldwide, there’s also a dark side to constant scrolling. If you are spending your days viewing what other people are doing in their free time, what they’re eating for dinner, or what workout routines they’re doing, you can get stuck in the toxic comparison mindset.
This mindset can throw off your intuition by making you think that what your body and mind are telling you to do isn’t good enough compared to everyone else. If you take some time to focus on only what your body and mind are telling you, it will help you reconnect with your inner self.
2. Embrace nature daily
This doesn’t mean you need to dedicate many hours every day to go on a hike or bask in the sun. For me, I choose to do a morning walk by the beach or in my neighborhood. Even 30 minutes a day spent outside without distractions can do so much for your mind.
This is a sacred time that you give your brain to work through whatever it feels like it needs to. Be sure to walk without distraction, as silence can help you hear your inner dialogue even louder.
3. Commit to a daily spiritual practice
This one is different for each of us but critically important for getting in touch with your intuition. For me, I like to pray every day. I used to try and plan out my prayers, almost trying to hit a checklist. But now, I let my heart speak to what it needs every day.
This can also come in the form of manifesting, pulling Tarot cards, or doing another spiritual act. The point is to try to connect to that part of yourself and listen to what your heart needs every day.
4. Take part in daily meditation
Meditation has been a HUGE game changer for me. I choose to meditate for 15-20 minutes a day, some days fitting in a full 30 minutes if I’m feeling called to. This practice is a partnership between you and your mind, which is exactly the relationship we’re working on when trying to connect with our intuition.
If you aren’t one for silent meditation, opt for a guided meditation or put on some quiet music or nature sounds in the background. No matter how you go about it, meditation offers time for your mind to quiet down so you can hear those little intuitive voices come through.
5. Speak your truth
This one is not always easy. Especially in situations where you feel trapped, nervous, or out of place, speaking your truth can be frightening. But like many things, this gets easier with time.
When you are in situations that make you feel hesitant to speak your truth, remember that there is a reason you feel this way. In addition, remember that you would want others to speak their truth to you, so it’s important to give the same energy back.
6. Schedule free time to act intuitively
Make time for yourself, even if it’s a couple hours on the weekend or 30 minutes every day to just act intuitively. Don’t make any plans for this time, and when it comes up try to listen to your heart.
You could trigger your intuition by beginning with a meditation or a journaling session. Then, do what your heart tells you. The most important thing is to release any self-judgment. If your body and mind are telling you to go on a walk, do it. If you feel called to rest, do it. Maybe you’re being pulled to engage in spiritual practice. No matter what it is, listen to your intuition and follow through.
7. Listen to every. little. whisper.
This one took me a while to embrace. I would feel guilty when my body told me to rest, and I would say “no” when I really wanted to say “yes.” Over time, and with practice, I have learned to listen to all of the whispers my intuition sends me in quiet moments.
This can mean listening to eat when you’re feeling hungry, showing up for a workout when your body is craving it, or spending the day resting to help ease your body and mind.
This shouldn’t be confused with negative self-talk. Your intuition does not try to bring you down or make you feel less than. So when you’re preparing to follow intuitive whispers, make sure they’re the real deal and working toward bettering your overall wellbeing.
No matter how you choose to do it, dedicating time to be by yourself without distractions is such an important part of getting in touch with your intuition. We all fall out of touch sometimes, and rather than hating on yourself for this, try to get back into the swing of things slowly but surely.
We have an insanely powerful force within us that has the ability to place us exactly where we need to be. All we need to do is listen to it and act on it.
