Today’s intuitive tip comes inspired by the yoga mat. When we say, get out of your head, it means moving the awareness from the mind to something greater – the heart and soul. One of the fastest ways to to do this comes from yoga.
Most yoga classes begin or end with the hands clasped together at heart level, bowing to the intelligence of the heart rather than the head.
Every time we do that in the mat, it can also be a wonderful reminder for our intuitive gifts. Intuition works best when the head is placed second after the heart and soul. Psychic work is something our souls do well, but our heads do badly at! Just think of the last time overthinking got in the way of a good intuitive flow.
Get the head out of the picture and the heart in
The more we move our mind and our head and our thinking and our thoughts away from intuitive work and come to the soul level the more more accurate the intuitive info will be. After all, the word psychic means, ‘of the soul’, and intuition really means, ‘inner tuition’. No mention of the head getting involved here!
Intuition is learning to be be led from a higher place than the mind, that’s led by love, and for us overthinkers, that can be a daunting task at first.
Overthinking can mess with intuition
We can use the lovely yoga namaste practice to anchor in a reminder to let the heart and soul lead. And frankly if you’re like me in the beginning I needed reminding several times a day!
Other ways to get out of your head when it comes to intuition could be other mindfulness practices like slowing down the breath, stopping to notice the sounds around, or simply unplugging social media for 20 minutes.
Just adding the small moment of mindfulness changes the amount of white noise the mind contributes to the soul connection. Because that’s what the mind does. It will always do that. When we bow the head to the heart, we recognise there is a deeper, stronger place to receive and work from. And that is our soul, our higher self, our heart, which holds the greater part of us.
