Tune Into Your Intuition

Intuition is knowing something without the use of rational analysis. While some view the use of intuition in business with suspicion, relying solely on reason can be detrimental to creativity and problem solving. According to brain research, the left-brain takes care of rational thought, and the right brain handles non-rational activities, such as emotions, senses, creativity, and intuition. The goal is to use the whole brain so you can access the widest range of functions to produce the best decisions. Unfortunately, the left-brain is often louder than the right brain and draws our attention more often.shutterstock_86909897

One way to hear your intuition is to quiet the left brain. You can do this with meditation, cultivating mindfulness, or just relaxing. Another way is to understand how your intuition “speaks” to you.

If you are a visual person, you may gain intuitive insights from what you see. Have you ever been torn between buying two different cars and began to see one of them everywhere? That’s your intuition speaking with images.

Have you ever had a “gut feeling” or experienced that “this-doesn’t feel-right” sensation? Feelings are another way intuition communicates.

Use your intuition by posing a question and letting your left-brain dictate logical, rational answers. Then, pay attention to visual messages and feelings around the issue to discover what your intuition has to contribute. Begin to pay attention to external and internal messages and attune your “hearing” to your intuition.
