Intuition, Inner Wisdom, Inner Knowing, the Third Eye.
The sixth chakra is so fun and so helpful when you are living your life consciously.

Intuition, inner wisdom, inner knowing, the third eye also known as the sixth chakra.

The sixth chakra is so fun and so helpful when you are living your life consciously.

The problem is that it is located above your eyes on your forehead, which is really close to your brain, and your brain thinks it knows exactly what you should be doing.

When really your brain has nothing to do with intuition.

Usually when you are in your head you are running a bunch of tapes of how you think life should be and how you should be living and who has more stuff and how you are not good enough.

We get all these thoughts and ideas that naturally we analyze and over think, we worry, and we question- and then we don’t know if it was intuition or not.

So how do you know the difference?
It’s actually quite simple…
Intuition is subtle our ego is not.

The ego is so important. We need our ego. Our ego tells us when we need to eat, it tells as that we need to put gas in the car and that we need to get to work. These are very important things in order to survive in life.

However, our ego is not very good at knowing what your dreams are and what would make you happy beyond belief. That is your intuition. Your ego tends to make decisions based on fear and your intuition makes decisions based on joy.

To hear your intuition, you must pay attention to your body and all the subtle signs.
The information is received through the sixth chakra, but it is interpreted through your body.

When you are beginning to listen to your intuition start with simple questions.

Take a breath, ground your feet to the floor and ask something like, ‘What would be the best thing for my body to eat right now, an apple or a cookie? or ‘Should I go out with my friends tonight, or stay home and rest?’

Then pay attention to what happens. Do you get a yes or a no?

Do you feel more relaxed about one or the other?

Is there a knowing inside that one would be better than the other, even if it goes against what you want?

Follow the intuitive thought and then ACT!

It is important to act on intuition.

That is when you get the confirmation, and then you start to build your confidence so the next time you have to make a decision you will recognize the signs in your body, and you will know to trust the information you are receiving.

Play with this.

Intuition is like a muscle, the more you practice the stronger it will get.
