The Importance Of Meditation
If you were asked is meditation good you would probably have no hesitation to answer yes regardless if you do now or ever have meditated. So what is meditation used for? Everyone today has heard of mindfulness meditation which is used to relax and cope with the busy world. However many people do not know that meditation is a powerful tool to help you access your intuition and other psychic abilities.
Is Meditation Good For Awakening Your Intuition?
The purpose of meditation is not just relaxation as with mindfulness practice. Meditation is the most powerful way to tune into your intuition. Meditation pulls you out of the physical world and gets you back in touch with the spiritual aspect of yourself.
It connects you with your higher self. This is powerful. Take the time to learn how to meditate deeply. However when first learning how to meditate a guided meditation can really be of help at the beginning of your journey. But after you become more adept then just a short trance-like state will rejuvenate you and clear your intuitive senses. Before we can understand the spiritual benefits of meditation in regards to intuition it would serve us to examine what intuition actually is.
What Is Intuition?
So you apparently want to activate your intuitive senses? Let me ask you, in your opinion what exactly is intuition? You may have a belief that it is something supernatural. You may think that it is a special “force” not unlike what you have seen in the movie Starwars when Yoda is teaching your Luke Skywalker how to do things with his mind.
You may believe that your mind is interpreting certain facts that it is encountering subconsciously and communicating them back to you as “feelings” based on that interpretation. Neither is really correct. Intuition is your psychic ability. It is a powerful force and is a gift of the Spirit. Your Spirit.
Before you had a physical body you were Spirit. You were not bound in any way by time or space. You could travel the universe in less time than the blink of an eye. The one thing you did not have was a body. You could not experience the physical worlds you could explore as an eternal ethereal being. So you decided to come to earth and take on this form.
How To Develop Your Intuition
When you were born you came to earth with over 20 spiritual characteristics. These spiritual gifts are also called psychic abilities. Your intuition is exactly that. It is one of these psychic gifts of the Spirit. Your intuition can also be called a “gut feeling” and you have heard the term “women’s intuition” as well.
This is almost to be considered a psychic superpower. An extremely awakened intuition can be considered to be a “powerful weapon”. It provides all sorts of knowledge you wouldn’t ordinarily have. It is not your brain that requires data input to create a thought or make a decision. Your intuition is a different kind of intelligence. Being able to use both is extremely desired.
There are ways to enhance this wonderful ability and we all have the capability of doing so because you were all Spirit at one time and you all were endowed with those almost 2 dozen psychic abilities at birth regardless of whether you believe it or not.
There are simple ways to reawaken your intuition. These techniques can work for everyone.
Here are 3 easy actions that will help you increase your intuitive powers:
Heed Your Gut… Some chakras run through your body and these are spiritual energy centers. They are related to your psychic abilities. Your gut is physical but it works in collaboration with your chakras and intuitive senses. It is not just a catchphrase. Learn to depend on it.
Pay Attention To Your “Spidey Senses”… when your energy changes stay tuned to them. Often they will tell you if there is an imminent danger or that someone is energetically attacking you. They can literally suck the energy from you and leave you empty.
Notice Your Visions And Dreams… An intuitive insight may come to you in a dream or a waking vision. These come quickly and dissipate just as fast. Pay attention. Do not dismiss them. They may have meaning. You can learn to interpret them.
If your goal is to find out how to open the third eye quickly then let’s talk about how meditation opens your intuition. First, let me ask if you ever had the feeling that someone was about to call just you just before they did? Or did you or a friend ever see a spirit or have a dream or premonition that came true? Stories like this abound because every one of us has spiritual senses. The one we are discussing is clairvoyance or clear seeing. Unfortunately, most of us have forgotten how to use them. It is no wonder because our education and culture mostly value our intelligence and so this is where we focus our attention. One way back is through Meditation.
Did you know that many of the great discoveries in history came from intuition? Albert Einstein is a great example, his theory of relativity was inspired by a dream, much like being a meditative state, where he was going down a mountainside ever faster and watching the appearance of the stars change as he approached the speed of light. He said:
“What I say is more often felt through intuition than thought through the intellect.”
“It is not intellect, but intuition which advances humanity.”– Albert Einstein
Other examples of discoveries and inventions made in the dream state include the structure of the benzene ring by August Kekule, the sewing machine by Elias Howe, the theory of atomic structure by Nils Bohr, and the experiment that proved how nerve impulses are transmitted by Nobel Prize winner Otto Loewi. There are many more examples like this including famous novelists, poets, and composers whose creative works came to them intuitively.

Why Is Meditation Good For Accessing Your Intuition
Like those mentioned above some individuals, need to be asleep to access their intuition because their intellectual mind is more dominant in their awareness when they are awake. Meditation can help you learn to consciously access your intuition, in other words, to have a third eye-opening, also known as the sixth chakra.
When you meditate, you quiet your busy intellectual mind and tune out all distractions of the external world. Instead, you turn within to focus on the world inside yourself and you enter a space where information flows freely and can be simply known instead of having to be figured out. There are ways to open your third eye without meditation but a meditation to activate the Pineal gland is most probably the quickest and easiest.
You can find a free third eye guided meditation here. There are many meditation techniques to this however this one is very deep, much like guided hypnosis to open the third eye.
