Intuition does not come from the mind. Intuition is often experienced as a feeling or sensation throughout the body. Intuition can also be experienced through our other senses like vision, hearing, taste, touch, smell and also through our dreams.
It's important to work with your senses and energy to create a place of recognizing subtle energies. I learned that there are 6 senses that a Psychic Medium uses.
Six different clairs are:
Clairvoyance–having clear seeing, someone sees through the third eye between his or her two eyes. One sees flashes, images, or something like a movie film of what is happening in the past, present or future.
Clairaudience–having clear hearing, someone who hears information with the mind, not the ears. Basically, it is telepathic information coming into one’s mind. Sometimes people will hear this as a regular voice as if someone is speaking to them. It is not in the persons voice you may hear your own voice.
Claircognizance–having clear knowing, someone has information or knowledge of something that he or she does not actually know. Thoughts come out of nowhere, this is a tricky one it just comes to mind. This could be happening now or in the future.
Clairsentience– "clear sensing" or "clear feeling" is an extremely heightened form of empathy. Clairsentience is the ability to feel and experience the energy in an intuitive way. This energy stream includes other people's feelings, inanimate objects, spiritual insights, and premonitions of the future.
Clairgustance–having clear tasting, someone can taste something that isn’t really there. For example, someone tastes warm hot chocolate or grandma's special cookie but he or she is not actually eating any chocolate.
Clairalience—having clear smelling, someone can smell odors that are not present. An example of this would be to smell some perfume.
How do I kick start my intuition?
In some fashion you already have. There are many ways that you can start understanding or sharpen these skills. I will give you a few things you can do to help yourself get started.
Here’s how to do it:
Start to write down what you're feeling daily, understand how you feel about something. Where does it reside in your body?
Meditate, it can be guided or walking
Pay attention to your dreams
Start to be creative by painting, coloring, or making something with your hands
Jogging and walking
Work on clearing old emotions and feeling that serve you no purpose
Go to a class to help you build your connection
