A Few Unexpected Ways To Open Your Intuitive Gifts
Intuition is the ability to understand something immediately, to connect with the meaning of something or someone without a need for conscious reasoning, logic or words.
Developing your intuition is about connection.
Connection to the knowing, feeling, seeing and sensing you have within yourself.
For most people, the development of intuition requires somewhat of a process of getting down to a primal level of connection with the world around you.
This process starts by seeing that connection possibilities are all around you, meaning you don't have to go somewhere high, or somewhere else or somewhere near or somewhere far.
You only have to start to pay attention differently and be willing and open to opportunities to do so.
A Few Ways To Improve Your Intuitive Abilities
Shift your gaze to a wider perspective
Seeing the world as an observer, as though you are in a classroom, working on a vast experiment helps. When you step back and watch the experiment as a whole, you notice more intricate and influencing factors, than you from straining to look through a microscope at just one element. Both sharp focus and wide gaze are needed to understand and interpret the entire science project.
Step back and close your eyes. Walk into a new environment or even an old one, as though your eyes were trying to find the hidden image in a magic-eye picture.
Try shifting your sight to a soft gaze, rather than a hard, focused glare next time you’re in a space that’s beautiful. Notice what or if you see things differently. With a soft, relaxed open rather than focused gaze you can not only see auras, but you can also see and feel the subtle changes in the environment that were unavailable to you before. You pick up on cues in your environment that you could never have noticed before - simply with softening your gaze outward. Try it especially in low light.
Open to receiving love more
This is more than just a catchall.
To develop intuitively, we have to allow emotions in, and the most important one is human affection, also known as love. Everyone could be served by opening to love by accepting a compliment without explaining it away. If someone holds the door for you, saying thank you and walking through.
Allowing small acts of receiving love to play a natural part of your life opens intuition. One of the ways you can start receiving more love is by changing your body language to be more open. The book, The Like Switch (Amazon Link), talks about this more and how to use body language to promote empathy and love. It’s good for those who have closed off their body language after being hurt, but want to open up again.
The more that you incorporate and notice loving energy being sent towards you, the more you will see the many other types of energy signals people send your direction.
And to get the other signals, first, you must get comfortable with receiving the fundamental signal sent from person to person: love.
If you're an advanced psychic:
You can use love and how it feels in your body when you feel it, as your center rudder point for interpreting other emotions. You can calibrate empathy skills by noticing on your body where you feel love (for example: by remembering a loving memory), then ask yourself how a particular situation feels: better or worse than love? Higher or lower on your body? You can then use your practice at noticing how love feels as a base your meter for comparing how other things feel, too, which can be helpful in countless situations I won't even get into it now.

Bottom line: Opening to love isn't just a phrase, it helps calibrate your empathetic rudder to other situations, giving you a baseline for what is safe and healthy. It's like target practice, but with noticing love. And once you know what a genuine act of human affection feels like, then you know when everything else isn't that.
Create space for focusing and dreaming
Try incorporating a period where you are not connected to any other strings that pull you. To dream, you need to give yourself space to do so.
Release your connection from outside influences of television, radio, email, phone calls or text messages. Release your cords of attachment to all.
Start with a few moments every day where you spend time alone in reflection. Maybe doing something you enjoy. It doesn't have to be big. Spend this time reflecting on the warmth of a tea glass against your palms or reflecting on the songs of two birds in the branches above you over your lunch hour. It could be a small meditation. Just a moment where you are connected to no one, except the wanderings of your soul. Notice emotions when they happen, then let them go.Notice images, that come forward, then let them go.
To receive psychically, and clearly, for yourself and others, you have to clear out the gunk and organize the loose strings between you, your guides, and your soul. This focusing time allows you space to do this, giving you a floor to receive true things after everything else has emptied.
I like to equate it to seeing the stage after all the guests have left.
