In my last blog post, we kicked off a 3-part blog series on how to use intuition in your business to work less and make more money. I shared with you my secret sauce on how to cut 80% from your to-do list just by using your intuition.
Now, we can get to the even juicier part! It’s exciting, it’s edgy, it’s unconventional, but this is where your journey of manifestation gets really good!
Consider that your intuition is the thing that will guide you to the life you deeply want to create. But, for many of us, intuition doesn’t stand a chance because you align with the importance of your ‘logical brain’ and linear, sequential thinking. What I want to make clear here, is that to be able to allow your intuition to guide you, you must suspend your NEED for logic, the how, and the “figuring it out” and focus only on following your intuition. By doing this, your ability to sense it and use it will grow stronger and stronger each and every day.
Through my own training and self-discovery, I have uncovered a few key practices that have allowed me to grow my business and my success while working less. If you take on these practices I’m about to outline for you, I promise you will cultivate more time freedom and velocity in your day to day business endeavors.
1. In Order To Grow Your Intuition, Suspend Your Need For Logic
In my last post, I described the qualities of how you receive intuition. We called these types: the Knower, the Feeler, the See’er or the Hear’er. Every one of us is receiving information in one, or more than one of these intuitive ways. Once you are aware of how you receive your intuition, you will most likely notice that it makes no logical sense. This is where your ability to trust yourself and your intuition comes in.
Think about it this way. When you ask questions like, “What can I do today to make myself more money?” And you settle in to receive the information intuitively, you are functioning from a place where logic no longer exists.
This is completely contrary to how most everyone does business. This practice is so uncommon, that most of us need ongoing support and practice to continually follow our intuition, especially when it comes to business. And this is why I have dedicated my life to getting your logic system out of the way so that you can execute your daily decisions based solely on the guidance your intuition provides. Committing to this practice, and building the muscle will be your key to accessing velocity, not just in your business, but in your life.
2. In Order To Grow Your Intuition, Acknowledge It
To grow your intuition, like anything, a plant, your money, or a relationship, you must acknowledge it exists! This seems to be such an obvious point that most of us fail to “acknowledge it” lol! But, I see this with my new clients, all the time! The easiest way to acknowledge your intuition is to communicate with it. Ask yourself questions, listen for the response, and make sure to pat yourself on the back when you follow it!
Here are some easy questions you can ask in your business:
- What will make me more money today?
- What does my business want me working on today?
- Where do I sense I will find more clients?
- What is the next aligned action to take?
3. In Order To Grow Your Intuition, Marry it with Trust
Intuition needs to be married with trust because following it is not going to make sense, and in some cases will feel counterintuitive as it goes against our logical thinking brain. I have a lot of people working with me in my year-long Energetic Self Mastery Program that spend a majority of their time on trusting, not just their intuition, but themselves and all their creations. Your intuition is typically very clear. What takes practice, support, community, and guidance is learning how to suspend the logical brain, and being uncomfortable with taking the actions that most times make no logical sense. But, if you do this long enough you’ll notice that following your intuition becomes MORE LOGICAL and LESS UNCOMFORTABLE.
4. In Order To Grow Your Intuition, Surrender To It
You have a business, your business serves you and it serves other people. As soon as you create the business, it becomes its own energy, its own entity, and its own contribution on the planet. And if you don’t surrender to what it wants, you’ll most likely feel like your pushing a boulder up a hill. This is what gets in the way of creating massive shifts in your business and on the planet. Think about what it would be like to co-create with another energy like your business. It’s building an energy field, it wants to contribute, and all you need to do is use your intuition to tap into what it wants and then surrender to giving it. When you do this big leaps will happen with total ease.
Most of the time surrendering feels really uncomfortable because it goes against everything in our nature. Everything in our logic system, how we’re oriented, how we’re physically set up, and how our reality is set up.
So here’s a personal invitation from me to you…surrender.
What is your intuition saying? Now surrender and go do that! Even if you’re not quite sure how or what it looks like. Look at what would be possible if you acknowledged it, trusted it and surrendered to it?
But really, take a moment and look….
5. In Order To Grow Your Intuition, Honor it Consistently
When I speak with groups or connect with new clients, I often hear how badly people want success to show up in their business quickly and with ease. But, when we dive in deeper together, we discover that they are NOT consistently honoring their intuition and then taking the action that is aligned with what their intuition is telling them. Instead, they let their logical brain run on auto-pilot and make the majority of their day-to-day business decisions. This takes more work and more time, all in the name of ‘doing what you’re supposed to do,’ and it is not necessarily producing the results they truly want. Consistently practicing the qualities described above (acknowledging, trusting, and surrendering) will propel your business forward only when you consistently do the process and take the required aligned action.
If you were connecting with your intuition in this way consistently each day, each hour, each minute, instead of running on auto-pilot of what you are ‘supposed’ to do, how much velocity would you have in your business? And…How much velocity would you experience with everything that you’re creating?
So far in this blog series on mastering intuition in business, you learned how you receive your intuition and that to gain velocity in business with your intuition, you must suspend your need for logic and build your intuitive acumen. So, go ahead, acknowledge your intuition, sense it, communicate with it, listen to it, and trust that what is showing up for you. This will help build your ability to SURRENDER your logical brain. And finally, practice consistently honoring your intuition by taking aligned action with what you are truly wanting to create in your business.
Let’s face it, this is new, surrendering logic is not how we are taught to engage in this world or in business. So look for a moment, what do you think gets in the way of YOU honoring YOUR intuition?
In the third and final part of this blog series, I will guide you in some simple ways to cut right through the muck so that you can get to the actions most aligned with your intuition for your business.
Can you tell how much more powerful you’re becoming at growing your intuition and applying it to your business? As an entrepreneur, I know you know this is the good stuff that keeps you going and growing.
