Do you ever feel something is wrong but can’t quite put your finger on it? This is your intuition speaking to you. The question is, are you listening?

When making decisions, listening to your intuition and trusting your gut instinct is essential.

In this article, we’ll learn 11 powerful steps on how to trust your intuition and offer some tips for learning how to trust your gut instinct and strengthen your intuition power.

#1. Ancient Story About Intuition Power.

According to an ancient legend, there was a time when ordinary people had access to all the knowledge of the gods. Yet time and again, they ignored this wisdom.

One day, the gods grew tired of so freely giving a gift the people didn’t use, so they decided to hide this precious wisdom where only the most committed of seekers would discover it.

They believed that if people had to work to find this wisdom, they would use it more carefully.

One of the gods suggested that they bury it deep in the earth.

No, the others said—too many people could easily dig down and find it. “Let’s put it in the deepest ocean,” suggested one of the gods, but that idea was also rejected.

They knew that people would one day learn to dive and thus would find it too easily.

One of the gods suggested hiding it on the highest mountaintop, but it was quickly agreed that people could climb mountains.

Finally, one of the wisest gods suggested, “Let’s hide it deep inside the people themselves. They’ll never think to look in there.” And so it came to be—and so it continues today.

So how can you trust your intuition and gut instinct? Keep reading to learn how as this will change your life dramatically.

#2. How to Trust Your Intuition And Strengthen It.

For most of us, our early education and training focused on looking outside of ourselves for the answers to our questions.

Few of us have had any training on how to look inside, and yet most of the super successful people I have met over the years are people who have developed their intuition and learned to trust their gut feelings and follow their inner guidance. 

Many practice some form of daily meditation to access this voice within.

Burt Dubin, then a successful real estate investor, creator of the Burt Dubin Speaking Success System (serving Speakers Worldwide) knows all about trusting his intuition.

For some time, he had been looking to buy a four-corner property in Kingman, Arizona.

He knew it would be a good investment, but he had not been able to locate a property that was for sale.

One night he went to bed as usual, only to be awakened at 3:00 AM with a clear inner message that he was to drive to Kingman, Arizona—now!

Burt found this strange because he had called a realtor in Kingman earlier that same day and was told there were no four-corner properties listed for sale.

But having learned to trust his inner messages, Burt immediately got in his car and drove through the night, arriving at Kingman at 8:00 AM.

He went to Howard Johnson’s, bought a paper, and turned to the real estate section, where he saw a four-corner property for sale.

He went directly to the real estate office at 9:00 and had the property in escrow by 9:15.

But how was this possible? He had called the day before to find no four-corner properties for sale.

But at 4:30 the previous day, a property owner had called from New York to sell his property; he needed the money.

Because it was too late to get the property into the multiple listings, but knowing that the weekly paper didn’t close until 5:00 PM, the agent had called the paper and purchased an ad.

Because Burt had trusted his “still, small voice within,” he managed to purchase this prime piece of real estate before anyone else even knew it was available.

#3. Everyone has Intuition—It’s Just a Matter of Strengthening Your Intuition.

Intuition is not something relegated to certain people or to psychics. Everyone has it and everyone has experienced it.

Have you ever been thinking about your old friend Jerry, and then the phone rings and it’s Jerry on the line who was just thinking about you?

Have you ever awakened in the middle of the night and knew something had happened to one of your children, only to find out later that it was the exact moment your son was in an automobile accident?

Have you ever felt a burning sensation on the back of your neck, and then turned to see a man staring at you from across the room? We’ve all experienced this kind of intuition.

The trick is to learn how to tap into it at will to achieve greater levels of success.

#4. Using Meditation to Access Your Intuition Power.

When I was 35, I attended a meditation retreat that permanently changed my life. 

For an entire week, we sat in meditation from 6:30 in the morning until 10:00 at night—with breaks only for meals and silent walks.

Over the first few days, I thought I would go crazy. I would either fall asleep from years of not getting enough sleep, or my mind would race from one topic to another as I reviewed every experience of my past, planned how to improve my business, and wondered what I was doing sitting in a meditation hall while everyone else I knew was out enjoying life.

On the fourth day, an unexpected and wonderful thing happened.

My mind became quiet and I moved into a place from which I could just witness everything that was occurring around me without judgment or attachment. I was aware of sounds, sensations in my body, and a profound sense of inner peace. Thoughts still came and went, but not at the same pace or of the same kind.

The thoughts were deeper—what we might call insights, deeper understandings, and wisdom.

I saw connections I had never seen before. I understood my motivations, fears, and desires at a deeper level. Creative solutions to problems that I had been facing in my life came into my consciousness.

I felt relaxed, calm, aware, and clearer than I had ever felt before. Gone were the pressures to perform, to prove myself, to explain myself, to measure up to some external standard, to meet the needs of others.

Instead there was a deep sense of my self and my purpose in life

When I focused on my deepest, most heartfelt goals and desires, solutions would come pouring into my mind—clear thoughts and images of the steps I would need to take, the people I would need to talk to, and the ways to transcend any obstacles I might encounter. It was truly magical.

What I learned from this experience was that all the ideas I needed to complete any task, solve any problem, or achieve any goal were available inside me. I have used this valuable insight ever since.

#5. Regular Meditation Will Deepen Your Intuition Power.

The regular practice of meditation will help you clear out distractions and teach you to recognize subtle impulses from within. 

Think of parents sitting on a bench on the edge of a playground filled with children laughing and yelling at each other.

In the midst of all this noise, the parents can pick out their own child’s voice from all the other voices on the playground. Your intuition works the same way.

As you meditate and become more spiritually attuned, you can better discern and recognize the sound of your higher self or the voice of God speaking to you through words, images, and sensations.

The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, and the solution comes to you, and you don’t know how or why.

#6. How Your Intuition Communicates with You.

Your intuition can communicate with you in many ways. You may get a message from within as a vision or a visual image while you are meditating or dreaming.

I often get images while I am lying in bed after I first wake up, while I’m meditating or getting a massage, or while sitting in a hot tub or taking a shower.

It can come in a flash out of the blue or it can be a long, unfolding image like a movie.

Your intuition may speak to you as a hunch, a thought, or a voice actually telling you yes, no, go for it, or not yet.

It might come as one resounding word, a short sentence, or a complete lecture. You may find you can dialogue with the voice for clarification or more information.

You may also receive a message from your intuition through your physical senses.

If the message is one of watch out or be careful, you may experience it as a chill, the creeps, a sense of restlessness, discomfort in your gut, constriction in your chest, tightness or pain in your head, even a sour taste in your mouth.

A positive or “yes” message might come in the form of goose bumps, a dizzy feeling, warmth, a sense of opening or expansiveness in the chest, a sense of relaxation, a feeling of relief, or a letting go of tension.

You may also experience intuitive messages through your emotions, such as a feeling of uneasiness, concern, or confusion.

Or when information is of a positive nature, you may experience a feeling of joy, euphoria, or profound inner peace.

Sometimes it is just a sense of knowing. How many times have you heard someone say, “I don’t know how I knew; I just knew” or “I knew it in my heart” or “in the depth of my soul”?

An indicator that the message is truly from your intuition is that it will often be accompanied by a sense of greater clarity, a feeling of rightness about the answer or the impulse.

Another indicator that the message you are receiving is a correct one is an accompanying feeling of passion and excitement.

If you are considering a plan of action or a decision, and it leaves you feeling drained, bored or enervated, that’s a clear message saying Don’t go there.

On the other hand, if you feel energized and enthusiastic, your intuition is telling you to go ahead.

#7. Make Time to Listen To Your Intuition.

It is important to make time to listen to your intuition. Your most valuable intuitive wisdom often comes when you are relaxed and open to receiving it.

It may come through formal meditation—or through the many forms of informal meditation we engage in every day, such as sitting by a waterfall or stream, watching the ocean, watching the clouds float by, staring at the stars, sitting under a tree, feeling a soft breeze, staring into a fire, listening to inspiring music, jogging, yoga, prayer, listening to a bird sing, taking a shower, driving on the freeway, watching a child play, or writing in a personal journal.

You can even do informal meditation in an abbreviated way during the middle of a hectic day.

When you need help making a decision, take time to pause, take a deep breath, reflect on the question, and allow the intuitive impressions to come to you.

Pay attention to any images, words, physical sensations, or emotions you experience. Sometimes you will find that intuitive insights will immediately come into your awareness. Other times, they may come later in the day when you least expect it.

#8. Ask Questions To Develop Your Intuition Power.

Your intuition can provide you with the answers to anything you need to know. Ask questions that begin with “Should I…” and “What should I do about…?” and “How can I…?” and “What can I do to…?” You can ask your intuition questions such as:

  • Should I take this job?
  • What should I do about the lack of morale in the company?
  • What can I do to increase sales this year?
  • What can I do to guarantee we get this account?
  • Should I marry this person?
  • What can I do to lower my time in the marathon?
  • How can I achieve my ideal weight?
  • What is the next step I need to take to achieve financial independence
  • What should I do next?

#9. Write Down Your Answers.

Make sure to immediately write down any impressions you receive.

Intuitive impressions are often subtle and therefore “evaporate” very quickly, so make sure to capture them in writing as soon as possible.

Recent research in neuroscience indicates that an intuitive insight—or any new idea—not captured within seconds is likely never to be recalled again.

In 7 minutes, it’s gone forever. As my buddy Mark Victor Hansen likes to say, “As soon as you think it, ink it!”

Many people have their greatest success accessing intuitive information through journal writing.

Take any question that you need an answer to and just start writing about it.

Write down the answers to your question(s) as quickly as they come to you. You will be amazed at the clarity that can emerge from this process.

#10. Taking Immediate Action Will Strengthen Your Intuition Power.

Pay attention to the answers you receive and act on the information as quickly as possible.

When you act on the information you receive, you’ll find that you get more and more intuitive impulses.

After a while you will be living in the flow. It will all seem easy and effortless as the wisdom comes to you and you simply act on it.

As you learn to trust yourself and your intuition more, it will become automatic.

Experts agree that your intuition works better when you trust it.

The more you demonstrate faith in your intuition, the more you will see the results of it in your life. I strongly encourage you to listen to your intuition, trust it, and follow it.

Trusting your intuition is simply another form of trusting yourself, and the more you trust yourself, the more success you will have. Remember, it’s not what you think of; it’s what you write down and take action on that counts.

#11. She Listened To Her Intuition And Took Action.

Madeline Balletta was a very spiritual person. For her, inquiring within means talking to God…and listening to His answers. 

In 1984, Madeline’s life—and her own success path—were dramatically changed when she and her fellow church members prayed for a solution to her fatigue and heard fresh royal jelly.

Not understanding this clear directive, she investigated and discovered that royal jelly was the food substance worker bees fed to the queen in their hives—a wholesome and highly nourishing liquid that was just starting to be distributed in England as a nutritional supplement.

In time, Madeline started to get better. And soon, she began to pray about whether royal jelly was meant to do more than just help her.

Start a company was the response to her prayers. And so Madeline did.

Today, Bee-Alive is a multimillion-dollar company that has distributed nutritional products containing royal jelly to hundreds of thousands of people nationwide.

And through it all, Madeline has prayerfully asked for guidance and listened attentively to the answers.

“I believe God gave me the vision, the inspiration, the strength, and the courage to see it all through,” said Madeline.

What might happen when you inquire within?

For Madeline Balletta, praying, listening quietly, and acting on what she heard meant the development of a successful company serving hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers, as well as the creation of an unimaginable lifestyle for her and her family.
