Activating Your Intuition
Intuition, or the ability to glean information through energetic means, is a gift each being has access to. Exercising the third eye or Ajna chakra, through meditation expands subconscious awareness and builds a glossary of personal clairvoyant terms and experiences. The third eye chakra translates information received from the crown chakra into images. Create a clear channel of receptivity by exercising intuitive abilities regularly with some of these tools and techniques!
Pull a Tarot Card
The art of divination through means of cartomancy helps to broaden the understanding of oneself and the collective as a whole. Each tarot deck is unique in their approach to symbolism. Selecting a deck in affinity with you, thoroughly shuffle the cards with the intention that you receive a card beneficial for you to meditate on during this time. Reviewing the symbolism of the card pulled and allowing its information to reveal itself to you is a wonderfully intuitive act. Consider the colors featured, the numerical value, and the overall tone of the image. Reflecting upon how this card connects to you and what lessons can be applied can provide further insight, as well as another perspective.
