(Confession: I don't meditate as often as I should but I have found other ways to connect with that greater part of myself.)
Today I want to give you two tools from what I call, my Spiritual Tool Box. These two tools are what I have found help me connect with my intuition more effectively than any other thing.
As many of you have heard, meditation is one of the best ways to connect with your intuition/Higher Self/Inner Voice but if you are like me, you are finding it harder and harder to be able to sit down quietly and try to have no thoughts. It is not that often that I can pull that off, when I do, it is worth it.
“Lots of ideas, insights, inspiration and aha moments has come to me while on one of my walks."
Meanwhile, I have found two other tools that I have aligned with that really helps me access that wiser part of me and that requires not so much effort since I really enjoy doing both of them. These two tools are 1) Walking and 2) Journaling.
Walking has turned out to be not only a great way to exercise but to get my mind clear and be open to receive information that has been so inspiring and so enlightening that I have become addicted to it.
I walk almost every day (5-6 days a week) for an hour. It is definitely a form of meditation for me. Lots of ideas, insights, inspiration and aha moments has come to me while on one of my walks.
The second tool in my Spiritual Tool Box is journaling. I have been journaling since I was young but it was until I read “The Artist’s Way” by Julia Cameron that brought it to another level. In her book, Julia calls it “Morning Pages”.
Morning Pages consists of writing 3 pages of freeform writing as soon as you wake up in the morning. No more, no less. It has to be pen (or pencil) on paper. No computer, no typing.
Journaling has been a sure way for me to access my intuition. At first you will notice that you start to write about the negative thoughts that constantly circle in your mind. This is a way to dump all those thoughts that don’t serve us on the paper so we don’t have to keep thinking about them all the time.
Then, as time goes by, you will start to get ideas, clues into what to do next. You will get clarity about things that you have questions about. It is almost magical.
I am certain that all the information that we receive through walking and journaling is coming from our intuition/Higher Self/Inner Voice and the reason I know is because the message is calm, wise and positive.
I hope this has helped and inspired you in some way. Let me know how it works out for you.
