How to Start Your Intuitive Development Journey
1. Learn about what interests you the most
Auras, chakras, clairvoyance, dreams, astral travel, mediumship, angels, energy healing, numerology, underworld, spiritual world, totem animals, crystal healing and ancient symbolism.
There is so much to learn about in the intuitive, psychic, energetic and spiritual fields, it can often feel like a maze. The best thing you can do to navigate it is to simply choose which topic resonates and interests you most now and start there.
There is nothing you ‘should’ be doing. In fact, if you’re on the path of intuitive growth, the idea is that you are intuit-ing along it - meaning, you are going with what feels right to you.
If you come across a few used books at a yard sale, start there. If you find yourself watching mediumship television shows, start there. If there’s an energy healing class coming up in your area, attend it. Be open to any opportunity that comes your way and interests you even if you have no idea how you are going to use it, what you’ll do with it, or what piece it plays into your puzzle. The reason why always comes.
2. Identify which intuitive abilities you actually have
We all have intuitive abilities. They’re natural and have often buried within ourselves from childhood. As you move through life into adulthood, our natural gifts are often put on the back burner, and favored for physically tangible navigation of the world.
As a Spirit born into the physical world in a physical body, generally, the longer you are in your physical body, the more you favor physical world understanding and comprehension. But, you can teach yourself back to your natural state of spiritual awareness and understanding. You can re-open these spiritual (intuitive) abilities we all have before entering onto this earth as a physical being.
In the Membership Program, we have an Identifying Your Gift exercise available in the Meditation Library that everyone loves! If you're not a member, start with this article or with this The Circle podcast series - beginning with Episode #2 and going through Episode #6.
3. In the areas where you feel the most curiosity, invest
After you’ve been browsing the buffet bar and gotten a sense for what you’d like to have on your plate, invest into these areas. Follow your heart and feel out what resonates most with you. If you aren’t sure, don’t do it. If you keep revisiting the website and mulling it over, do it.
4. Ask those around you for suggestions
Your friends, family members and colleagues will often have suggestions for books they enjoyed, blogs they liked, meditations that worked for them or intuitive practitioners that they can recommend to you.
There is an untapped wealth of information around you and it’s important to reach out and ask those around you for their thoughts on good places to start. Your friends, family members and colleagues are around you for a reason - you share common interests and beliefs about the world - thus, it’s likely you’ll get something out of a class, a teaching or a teacher that worked for them.
From books to classes to podcasts to blogs, there are plenty places to start in a variety of modalities to cater to each learning style and preference.
