4. Pay attention
You need to be mindful every second and that is possible only when you pay attention to every little thing around you. Use all your senses! When you walk to your corridor count the steps, try to listen to every small sound in your surroundings like horns of buses or chirping of birds. Have an eye for detail – notice changes in board bills that you see everyday on streets or color of walls.
When you talk to people, pay attention to their way of walking and talking, mood, behavior, expressions etc. Don’t just hear, but listen! Observe, observe and observe some more. Record everything! Train your brain to notice every insignificant thing so that you can be attuned to the world around you. And when you communicate, do it with all your senses. Remember that 93% of the communication is non-verbal.
5. Feel the vibes
Have you ever felt anxious talking to a stranger? Or felt something is just not right at your home or office? These are negative vibes or say emotional signals or messages from your subconscious mind that help you sense the energy of the situation. If you feel energised talking to a positive person then it’s a good vibe. Feel the vibes to open up your sixth sense! This is sort of exercising non-visual senses so that you can perceive more subtle variations in the environment that you were previously unaware of.
6. Keep a dream journal
Sounds weird? Well, dreams journal will help you track recurring dreams and related themes and patterns, and understand subconscious thoughts and feelings. Interpret your dreams to know what your subconscious mind wants. You can become aware of ideas, changes or experiences happening below the surface of your immediate consciousness. Trust me this is an awesome way to strengthen your intuition.
Writing down about your dreams immediately after waking up can help you process your emotions and get a better understanding of your problems and life events. If your dreams feature positive outcomes you can overcome anxiety too. Do you know many famous writers got ideas from their dreams? You too can fuel your creativity!
7. Invest in “ME” time
Do you want to make some serious decisions? Or find a solution to a big problem? Take a walk or find a quiet place in your home and sit for meditation. Just take deep breaths to calm your thoughts. The goal is to be quiet and serene! You need to go within to question yourself or find answers. You need to practice this on a daily basis for quieting your mind. And you will see your memories, insights and senses converging to provide guidance to you.
8. Visualize and speak your intuition
You must know your intentions well and visualise yourself putting them into actions. Your intentions are your affirmations like “I will earn $1000 a day”, which you must put into actions to realize your life’s vision.
So, whatever goals you have, just visualise it in your mind and speak them out loud. This exercise will help you reinforce your desires with your subconscious mind and get charged up to actualise what you want. Simply put, you are sending messages to your subconscious mind just like your subconscious mind, dreams and intuitions send messages to you.
9. Spent time in nature
Sending more time with nature can help you develop strong physical senses. Talk to trees, greet the sun and the moon, do water rafting, or admire the beauty of flowers. This exercise will improve your short term memory, reduce stress, improve vision, boost creativity, improve sleep and increase happiness. Also, nature lovers are found to have a deeper sense of spirituality! Nature not only stimulates your mind but helps you reconnect and rejuvenate to allow for better intuition. Over time, this will raise your sensitivity to your sixth sense.
Voila! Hell lots of benefits!
