How to Get in Tune With Your Intuition Now

June 22, 2015

A couple of years ago, I wasn’t really in tune with my “intuition”. In fact, I would always wonder why I never was. Sure, I had gut feelings about certain things, but I wasn’t ever sure about my gut feelings – I would just second guess everything.

I noticed this because I started getting more into my faith, and would talk to my mom about how I didn’t understand how she was so in tune with her intuition. Whenever she would start talking about something, or asking for a sign, she would get that sign she asked for immediately. Me on the other hand, I would do the same thing and got nothing.

“WHY do I never get these clear signs that you get?” I would complain to my mom. I would ask the universe multiple times about various things. I tried to be patient. I thought it was a test. Or maybe I was just doing something wrong in life.

Fast forward to today, I am SO in tune with my intuition. I ask for a sign, I get it. I KNOW it’s a sign from the universe, and I am very confident in what my gut tells me. If something feels wrong it is, and if something feels right, it is.


How did I get from where I was, so lost and confused and never getting any sort of guidance, to where I am today, confident, in tune, and being guided in the right directions? I opened my eyes.

Back when I would complain about how I wasn’t getting any signs, I probably was – I just wasn’t paying attention.

I was so caught up in what I thought was right, what I thought I should and shouldn’t do, caught up in the what if’s and the buts, caught up in my own little world. I was stubborn, and I was frustrated which clouded the signs I was receiving, and thinking I knew everything. I was kind of stuck in a limbo, and never knew which way to turn.

This is why it is so important to be present in everything – be present with family, with friends, with whatever you are doing at the exact moment. Really listening – to what other’s say when they speak to you, listen to your gut instincts, listen to your intuition.  Actually paying attention – to details, to the earth, to God, to your body, to what is going on around you and more importantly what is right in front of you.

I know it’s individualized and some people may not even believe in things like that, but I do. I believe that things happen for a reason, and if you feel strongly about something just pay attention to what it means. Whether you have a good or bad feeling about something, someone, or a situation, don’t ignore it.

Deep down we know, it’s just a matter of taking action.

    1. Beautiful and smart post Brittany.

      I think it’s so important to be present in the moment not in the future. We can all benefit from reading this.

    1. Hi Brittany! Bravo for getting to a place where you can trust your gut. It’s not easy. I agree that we always know things deep down, but it’s whether or not we are ready to go with our gut feelings or ignore them and pretend we’re confused — I’d say, go with it at all times. Happy Monday!

      1. It’s still a work in progress 🙂 You too!

    1. Yes yes yes! Great for you for finally being able to get in touch with your body and mind! It is such a difficult thing, and I am trying to work on it myself everyday as well. I definitely have ways to go before I am able to maintain a present-moment way of thinking!

      1. it’s always a work in progress, but so much better than before!

    1. This was great and so true !!! I had been feeling lost for the past year and I realized a lot of it was because I had become so out of touch with my faith and with God. I’m feeling so much better lately and going after my goals, feeling really good about it. Trust in God=trust in yourself. XOXO
