“Your best ideas, those eureka moments that turn the world upside down, seldom come when you’re juggling emails, rushing to meet the 5 P.M. deadline or straining to make your voice heard in a high-stress meeting. They come when you’re walking the dog, soaking in the bath or swinging in a hammock.” – Carl Honore

Inviting Intuition In
We’ve discovered the importance of intuition over the last couple of days. Now let’s create a simple four step plan to use together in order to receive more of it, shall we?
Step one: Have a clearly defined goal in mind. A goal is said to be a dream with a deadline, so we want to have an exact target we are shooting for and we want a specific date by which we want to have it achieved. Let’s dream big, and let’s stretch ourselves with by dreaming of something which is exciting and amazing! Write out this goal in a short statement with a general idea of what you intend to do to get there.
Step two: Let’s read that statement aloud to ourselves as we go to bed and when we arise. Let’s review it multiple times each day, and let’s keep this our secret. We are beginning to build a burning desire by doing so. Let’s think about how great it would be as we see ourselves accomplishing the goal we have. Let’s also invite intuition in by asking for guidance to come to us. Who do we ask? We could ask God, our deeper subconscious mind, or the universe. We get to decide on that.
Step three: Let’s pay attention to any intuitive hints that come our way. As ideas pop into our mind we want to immediately record them in some way. We either want to write them down, or track them in some device where we can make an immediate note of them. Why? Haven’t you ever gotten a great idea to do something and forgotten it only to find someone else did it later? Yeah, that’s why. Respect those intuitive nudges.
Step four: Let’s implement at once any idea which comes at a critical time that could move us forward in our quest. By using the advice we get from unseen sources, we show our thankfulness for it, but it wouldn’t hurt for us to be outwardly grateful in general. Let’s use the occasion of the receipt of any intuitive thought to underscore for ourselves the importance of our mission- it’s important to us and to whomever else it may benefit.
Zig Ziglar used to say that getting what we want when we achieve our goals is not nearly as important as who we become in the process of reaching those goals. We think that’s a wonderful way to sum it all up. Having built a pipeline for intuitive thought to come to us, wouldn’t it be fair to say that we’ll likely never be the same person again?
Question of the Day to Ask Ourselves
“What else can I do to invite intuition into my life as a daily occurrence?”
