5 Mindful Ways To Train Your Intuition
1. Keep a reflective journal Try writing down your hunches in a journal and notice how they are experienced. This is particularly beneficial if you can capture them before the analytic process takes over. For this reason, it might be helpful to keep the journal with you during the day. Making a note of your gut feelings about a situation or decision also means you can check them later, to assess how accurate or helpful they were. Writing down words and phrases as they come to you when considering a problem may also provide you with a different insight. As an alternative or complementary approach, it can be useful to draw pictures or doodles. Drawing tends to slow us down and may tap into more intuitive modes of thinking. 2. identify Your Intuitive Communication Style People experience intuition differently. For some, it may manifest as an image; for others, as a physical sensation (the classic ‘gut feeling’); yet others identify a more emotional response. Slow down and try to sense how, or where, you experience your intuitions. 3. Practice Daily Make time each day, or even several times a day if you have an important decision to make, to tune into your intuition. Today we live in a world where we are constantly bombarded by data. When you add into the mix the fact that modernism prizes a focus on rationality and science, it is understandable that it can be hard to listen to our intuition and just let it flow. Part of your daily practice is to recognize that intuitive processing can help decision making, and allow time and space for answers to come to you without over-analyzing a situation. 4. Be Mindful Mindfulness encourages us to notice feelings and thoughts without attaching to them. This can be particularly useful if you are trying to develop your intuition. Watching and accepting thoughts without judgment will allow you greater access to intuitive information. Another useful mindfulness technique, the body scan, can help you notice sensations in your body, which might relate to intuitive processing. A body scan can be done whenever you have an important decision to make or practiced daily to improve intuition. Being present and mindful of our surroundings is also likely to help develop intuition, by providing the unconscious with rich data to inform decisions. 5. Keep a Dream Journal. For the final technique, I turn to Freud himself, who famously said: The interpretation of dreams is the royal road to a knowledge of the mind’s unconscious activities. Dreams can provide us with a wealth of information about our unconscious processes. Writing them down upon waking will aid with recall, and the content can be explored to give clues to any difficulties or dilemmas you might be facing.
How To Test Your Intuition
Struggling to tap in and make decisions? This test is designed to test your intuition. In addition to the test above you can use the following journal prompts to strengthen your intuition. “Does it feel like the right thing to do?” “Does it seem like the right answer?” “How do you feel when you think about x situation?” “What was your gut reaction?” “Do you have a hunch about that?” “Where in your body do you notice a reaction?” “If you did know the answer, what would it be?”
Terrible Thanks For Asking
It’s a question we ask (and get asked) all the time: “How are you?” And normally we just respond with “Fine!” even if we’re totally dying inside, so everyone can go about their day. But it’s not always all that fine, is it? “Terrible, Thanks For Asking” is a show by author Nora McInerny that lets real people get real honest about how they’re really doing. It’s sometimes sad, sometimes funny, and almost always both. Listen here Produced by Nora McInerny and Feelings & Co.
Near Death Experience: Is it possible to cross over and come back to life?
Cherie Aimee underwent a life-changing event during cardiac arrest when she died for 90 minutes — and miraculously came back to life.

The Science & Process of Healing from Grief.
Dr. Andrew Huberman sheds light on grief and the challenges of processing losses of different kinds. He will explain the biological mechanisms of grief, including how neural circuits for emotional and factual memory combine with those for love and attachment, to create feelings of absence and yearning. He discusses how grief is distinct from depression, yet why they can feel so similar, and provide science-based tools to assist with the grieving process, including how to reframe and remap the relationship with those we have lost while still maintaining a strong emotional connection to them. Huberman explains the importance of having and building strong foundational psychological and biological states so that we can better cope with grief when it happens. Finally, he describes tools to adjust those states, including those for accessing sleep, managing stress and emotional swings. This episode is for those suffering from grief but also for everyone, given that we all experience grief at some point in our lives. While we hope the information in this episode will be of use to anyone suffering from grief of any kind and at any time, we are also careful to acknowledge that many people require additional support and resources. For that reason, please email us at email@example.com if you require further support.

'The Power of Now'. Transformative guidance for your life after loss.
The 20th Anniversary edition of Eckhart Tolle's 'The Power of Now' is a timely reminder for us all, as the end of the year - 2020 - rapidly approaches. The raising of Human consciousness has been the underlying theme of the entire year and as a result, there has been a universal yearning, a soul call, for guidance, relief and understanding - the kind that is provided by Tolle in his book 'The Power of Now'. I was first introduced to this book in 2014 after learning that Oprah Winfrey had 'eliminated all of her stress' as a result of reading it and engaging in conversation with Tolle himself. I was not disappointed. The journey of becoming is not one for the faint of heart or the stubborn hedonist; but rather for those of us who seek a new way of being, inner peace and freedom from the relentless chatter of the self-critic and busy mind. If you are one of the global 4% facing the daily panic and upset caused by anxiety; or one of the 3.5% struggling to keep your head above water despite suicidal thoughts and daily depression, then this guide to becoming mindful holds the answers to your mental wellbeing. The Power of Now will help you to first understand what lies behind the constant onslaught of mental chatter; and second, provide you with the steps that will help you to gain clarity and ease while giving you the mental space to breathe once again. After reading this book again after a few years, I was delighted to discover that as with all great books, Tolles' The Power of Now' does not disappoint in providing layered wisdom; so that no matter how many times you read it, there is always something that appears new, that resonates on a deeper level or simply inspires a new level of commitment to self and selfwork. Tolle writes 'Don't get attached to any words... They are only stepping stones, to be left behind as quickly as possible" The book is laid out in mini-chapters with pauses clearly signposted, indicating where we should do exactly that; release all attachment, process what we have just read and then leave every word behind as we move on to the next gem. He goes on to explain how we are not in control of our busy minds - but they in control of us. He also points out, quite eloquently, how identifying with our minds is the greatest delusion of life and a sure way for us to become imprisoned by the tyrannical ego, ultimately causing us misery, unhappiness and disease. Once he has established the truth of the mind, Tolle then guides us to become the watcher of this demagogic force; encouraging us to take the proverbial step back and simply observe all of the mental tormentor's activities. He goes onto to ensure we take the time to notice how the hold begins to dissolve under our gaze, leaving us with the power over it, in turn releasing ourselves from suffering. As we navigate the transformative energy of this year, Tolle's 'The Power of Now' shows up like a beacon in the mist giving us all hope and surety that yes, there is so much more to this life that we live, that there is a wealth of beauty and an abundance of peace within each and every human being on the planet, and, most importantly we can all access it right NOW! I recommend that you add 'The Power of Now to your bookshelf, audible or iBooks account, immediately, and commit to uncovering your own internal sanctuary. Regardless of faith, religion or belief, this book serves as an anchor in the choppy waters of life and the silver lining we all need amidst the clouds of 2020.
