“The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, the solution comes to you and you don't know how or why.”
~ Albert Einstein
Am I wired like everyone else to receive Intuition?
Notice how your senses become extended to give you intuitive input from sounds, sights, feelings, smells and taste. Most people tend to extend their senses through vision, voice and vibration.
Vision or visual sense: Your intuition works best through your eyes. You can literally close your eyes and “see.” Your intuition helps you “read between the lines” or use “X-ray vision” to see beyond reality. You may say, I “see” what you mean or I can “picture” it.
Voice or auditory sense: Your intuition works best through your ears. You extend your hearing so you can hear what is really being said beyond words. When writing, you tend to “hear” dictation. You may say, “You’re not “listening” or Let’s sit down and “talk” about it.
Vibration or tactile sense: Your intuition works best through your sense of touch. You get a “feel” for what is going on. You may say I can’t come to “grips” with this or, I can get a “feel” for the situation.
Smell or olfactory sense: Your intuition works best through your sense of smell. You can “sniff out” a situation and may say this “stinks!.”
Taste or gustatory sense: Your intuition works best through your taste buds. You can “get a taste” for any situation and would actually talk about the “good taste” left in your mouth.
What did Dr. Albert Einstein have to do with intuition?
Albert Einstein was a strong mental intuitive. He said that “man's conquest over his own ignorance must rest on intuition. It is imagination that makes man able to talk to the stars.”
By extending his mind, Einstein conversed with the universe. This ability was clearly evident in published accounts of Einstein's discovery of his theory of relativity. He had a vivid daydream of riding on a beam of light, which he followed in his mind's eye back to its point of origin. He then spent years formulating the questions that would lead to his theory of relativity.
A strong proponent of “listening to the intuitive process,” he wrote, “The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, the solution comes to you and you don't know how or why.”
What can I do to become more receptive to my Intuition?
You need to become more centered. You can use any or all of the following techniques to release the mental tension: You can:
Use a visual focus: You can focus on any object or picture in your environment, particularly one that is geometric in shape. You can also look at a soothing picture of a natural setting, such as the seashore, mountain or a pastoral scene. You can also focus on an object such as the leaf of a plant or the wood pattern on your desk.
Use a focusing word or phrase: You might consider using words like joy, courage, serenity, courage or peace be still.
Use an affirmation: Create a positive statement that you say repeatedly. For example, “My intuition already knows the right answer.”
Use an auditory focus: Listen to a slow, restful piece of instrumental music, or to the sounds of nature.
