Abstract: Because we often think intuition is only for the “gifted,” not everyday people like “us,” we miss out on what it can add to our personal and business lives. Intuition is a practical skill we can all tap first by looking at how energy works.
Many people are curious about intuition, others are skeptical about it, still more think it’s a gift reserved for a select bunch—that doesn’t include them. No wonder so many people are just not using their intuition. Or at least they don’t think they are.
How Energy Healing Boosts Our Intuition
Truth is, we’re all using our intuition every day, all day long. However, we’re often not using it correctly because we don’t understand how our particular intuitive ability works. That means we’re missing out on an innate skill that can make our lives easier, even safer.
The key to learning how our intuition works is to properly tap it. An easy, natural way is by developing a daily practice of hands-on energy healing. Yes, energy healing. While we can all learn energy healing modalities, from Reiki to Healing Touch, energy healing is an innate skill we all have, just like intuition. It’s simple and quick to use, so we can easily incorporate it into everyday life.
We can start using energy by recognizing what it is. Energy is the stuff of life itself, the building block of everything we see—and don’t see. If we think of our bodies as essentially energy in a physical form, we can understand that working with energy is as simple as breathing.
Making Energy Healing a Daily Routine
The trick, then, is to make working with energy a normal daily practice that acknowledges we have innate healing abilities as we intentionally use them. One simple way to do that is to start and end the day with an energy healing ritual. That could be as simple as crossing our hands over our hearts while inviting ourselves to consciously breathe in healthy energy for a few minutes, blessing ourselves, then thanking ourselves for taking the time to do this routine. As we deepen this practice, we notice that we are paying more attention to details in our life that we overlooked or ignored in our hectic schedules, including our intuition. We may even move on to doing this simple practice in a free moment during the day, or when we are stressed.
The result is that over time this simple ritual becomes part of our daily life, reminding us that there is more to the world than we can see and that we can be open to it by simply being present, conscious of the healing moments, and then paying attention to what we notice, because in these quiet moments our intuition presents itself. This isn’t meditation, nor is it a timeout from life. Instead, it’s a few conscious moments where we acknowledge our sacred souls, the bodies we’ve chosen to live in, and our connection to the wider world around us—by inviting healthy energy to support and inform us.
As most energy healers will tell you, even a simple ritual like this has the happy side effect of boosting our intuition. Why? Because intuition and energy are intimately connected, and paying attention to our energy a few times a day also opens us up to our intuition, like putting the key in a car’s ignition and turning it on. Energy is our foundation, and intuition is one of the building blocks of our lives, but it’s often a quiet skill that gets pushed aside in our loud, busy lives. An energy ritual easily helps us normalize both our intuitive and healing skills.
This is why energy healers will often say how much more intuitive they are. It isn’t because they are working on their intuition, although they may (and should) be; it’s because they’ve allowed themselves to tap into their intuitive abilities with an energy healing practice.
For additional help, consider keeping a crystal like selenite, a form of quartz, with you as you do your energy healing ritual. Selenite’s properties include helping us clear confusion and stuck energies while boosting our ability to set intentions and enhancing clarity.
Try this simple energy healing ritual, throw in a bit of selenite, and see how it boosts your intuition.
