Intuition is that gut feeling, that inner knowing that something feels right or not. In today’s busy life where people believe they have to be “doing” and “keep doing”, there’s no pause to appreciate life as it is. The constant need “to do” means that many have lost sight of their intuition, so to speak.
Your intuition has not gone anywhere. Just that you need to be in the present moment to access your intuition. Your inner voice, inner guidance system or intuition exists in the present moment. People often don’t “trust” their intuition because they are in and out of the present moment – tooing and froing from the past, the future and then in moments of clarity they find themselves in the present moment. Difficult for some to trust especially when their intuition is there one moment, then gone the next.
There are a number of ways in which you can open up to your intuition. There are gemstones, tinctures, meditation techniques, music, herbs and books that can assist you.
When it comes to working with gemstones to assist you in opening up to your intuition, there are tumblestones, crystal points or wands.
The most effective way to use gemstones for the purpose of intuition is for it to have close physical contact with you, so either worn as a piece of jewellery or pop a tumblestone in your pocket and keep it with you at all times.
Here are just some gemstones that are beneficial to working with your intuition, largely associated with the third eye chakra:
Iolite – Intuition, Vision, Journeying
Amethyst – Protection, Intuition
Pietersite – Vision, Clarity of thought, Sharpens intuition
Lapis Lazuli – Vision, Truth, Awareness
Labradorite – Intuition
Azurite – Inner Vision, Psychic Powers
