Tune into the Language of Your Intuition

By Claudette Rowley

"Like an ability or muscle, hearing your inner wisdom is strengthened by doing it." –Robbie Gass

How many times, when we hear a foreign language for the first time, are we struck by the interesting sounds coming from the speakers - even if we don't understand what they're saying? How quickly do we then begin ignoring those sounds because what we hear doesn't spark comprehension?

Identifying and deciphering the language of intuition that's chattering away in our minds can be an equally foreign experience. Yet learning the translation key can bring abundant understanding and opportunity. But where can you find the key?

Start by tuning into more obvious intuitive experiences: a song lyric that pops into your head, a gut feeling or a recurring dream. Intuition is largely a form of sensory knowledge - a sixth sense that's as available to you as your sight, hearing, taste, touch or smell. Just like the other five senses, it's a knowledge that has little to do with your mental capability.

Becoming acquainted with your intuitive voice is a personal experience, and usually involves expanding your perspective of intuition. Unfortunately, it's rarely as conventional wisdom predicts - that intuition will come in dramatic "flashes" that are so obvious we feel as if we've been struck by lightening, hit over the head with a two-by-four or heard angels sing.

More likely, intuition shows up in the dialect of the ordinary, often taking the form of a fleeting inner comment, such as "I really should call Ken and tell him about my new business idea," or "You know, every time I drive by that restaurant, I feel compelled to stop" or "I should look through that pile of mail." How easy it is to dismiss these seemingly benign thoughts because the thoughts come without the context of why each thought is intuitively important. Or, worse yet, those thoughts are followed by our inner critic, eager to jump in with "Now there's a stupid idea."

How can I start to recognize - and listen to - my intuitive dialect?

  • Pay attention to fleeting inner comments. Follow the direction of these messages and see where they lead you. For instance, today I got a sense that I should go through a stack of mail. I did, and found a long-awaited check that I had missed when I flipped through the mail just a day earlier.

  • Notice repeated experiences, such as three people recommending the same book to you in the space of a week. That's a sign that you should run out and get the book.

  • View intuition as a sixth sense - use it as you would your eyes, ears, nose, mouth or skin.

  • Practice asking your intuition a question and listening for an answer. Then have patience. The answer may come immediately, or it may not arrive for several days, weeks or even months.

  • Observe your body. The body is incapable of falsehood; if it gives you a message, it's best to listen. An acquaintance recounted a long-standing internal pull to move to the U.S. Whenever she resisted this urge to move from her home country, she literally felt punched in the stomach. Once she made the decision to move, the stomach-punching stopped.

  • Use your energy levels as a barometer. As your energy rises, plummets, and centers you, what do you notice? For many of us, energy can serve as an intuitive gateway, and a useful way to heighten our awareness of our intuitive dialect.

Start learning the language of your intuition today. Listen to the information your body, heart and soul share with you. Just as learning a foreign language will allow to communicate in new places, deciphering the dialect of your intuition will transport you to whole new worlds. You have all the tools you need to learn your own intuitive dialect. With practice, you'll be fluent!
