Lots of people tell me they’re interested in developing their intuition
The first question I ask is: Do you meditate?
For those who say yes I say, “Great,” since meditation, aside from its many health benefits, is by far the greatest tool for developing intuition.
For those who say they can’t meditate or don’t have time, don’t worry. I have an easy way you’re going to love to learn to tap into your intuition.
The truth is we’re receiving intuitive guidance all the time.
One of the best times for our intuition to speak to us is through our dreams. There’s no interference from the ego while we’re asleep when the subconscious is in control.
We have many kinds of dreams
Some dreams contain intuitive guidance and some are just crazy pieces of the day’s events. Precognitive dreams foretell of future events. Some dreams we have are vivid encounters with departed loved ones, and others recollections of out of body experiences. And others offer intuitive guidance to solve problems and answer questions about issues we’re dealing with in our lives.
Your intuitive dreams act as a gauge to show you whether you’re on the right track in your life. Your intuition has a very practical purpose and is there to help you make the right choices, keep you safe and act as a warning system and guidance system in your life.
Get help while you sleep
The most rewarding dreams are the problem solvers simply because they are the most practical in everyday life. Problem solving dreams not only give you answers and guidance, but can also validate an answer or direction you’re not 100 percent sure about taking.
Intuitive guidance, at its best, gives us more information and answers so that we live better and more fulfilling lives. Getting answers to problems is the main reason for learning to remember your dreams.
For example now that I’m in the market for a new home I had this dream:
I was on a movie set in California in the mountains. There was a huge fire consuming the forest in the distance and an enormous cloud of smoke formed in the sky. We were being evacuated by bus. I said to some of my companions, “I guess the only safe place for me is New York.” I felt resigned to my fate of returning home.
I had been contemplating moving out of the area and “acting” as if I might do it soon. While the idea of moving where the cost of living is lower sounds great, the truth is I really can’t move too far away from my elderly mother right now. So, my dream sent me the “smoke signals” that I’d have to come back home. My dream was telling me that if I moved I would be “evacuated” by disasters, which I interpreted to mean regarding my mother’s health, and have to return home.
Why some people remember dreams and others don’t.
When we wake up and remember we’ve had a crazy dream, but then jump out of bed to get ready for work and forget the dream we’re sending a message that says – I’m not interested in this information.
People who remember their dreams take time to think about them. They’re interested – even if they might not understand the meaning of the dream. The message they send to the brain is: I like remembering my dreams – send more please!
To start benefiting from your intuitive wisdom the easy way – program yourself to remember your dreams.
You can train yourself to remember your dreams in as little as a few nights. And once you do – you’ll never need to worry about hearing your intuition again.
Here are the basics on how you can begin remembering your dreams to take advantage of your inner wisdom:
1. Be prepared. Make sure you have a pad and pen on your bedside table.
2. Set the alarm. Wake up a half hour earlier to have time to mull over your dream.
3. Create your intention. Make up your mind to have a dream and recall it. Spend a few minutes before drifting off telling yourself that you want to have a dream, that you will have dream and that you will readily and easily remember it.
4. Hold onto the images. When you wake up do not open your eyes right away and do not move. Just lay still to allow the dream to stay on the surface of your mind.
5. Reduce disturbances. Do not allow pets to distract you when you wake, or better yet keep them out of the bedroom so they don’t wake you up.
6. Jot down the details. After grabbing some of the pertinent details – write them down before they get a chance to sink back down to the depths of the subconscious. The more you work with your dreams the easier it will become to decipher them.
7. Silence helps when recalling dreams. Don’t turn on the radio or TV or talk right after waking up. After jotting down a few details – silence allows further dream fragments to bubble up to the surface of our awareness.
Getting up at night makes it more difficult to remember dreams. Try to limit drinking too many liquids prior to going to bed. When you awaken in the midst of a dream – the movement of having to get out of bed right away yanks dreams from your mind, so that for the most part they are lost forever.
Follow these simple steps and after a few nights you’ll find that you easily remember your dreams in the morning.
Do you recall your dreams? Do you have a problem your trying to solve right now? Try following these steps and see how many more dreams you recall.
