We all have an inner source of wisdom, a voice that speaks to us from the depths of our being. It is our intuition, and it can reveal a world of insight for creative problem solving and creative solutions. Unlocking this power can seem difficult but honestly, with practise, it is absolutely possible! In this article, we will explore the power of intuition and how to unlock it through creative solutions.
What is intuition?
Intuition is a powerful force, or feeling, that resides within all of us. It is our inner guidance system, a source of wisdom that often goes unrecognised at best or just simply ignored. But when we learn to tap into this power, we can access a world of insight and creative solutions that can help us make the right decisions. But what is it?
Intuition is a form of non-linear thinking that allows us to see the bigger picture beyond the obvious. It is an inner knowing that somehow goes beyond all the things we have learned, and yet taps into everything we have ever learned in an instant. Intuition can help us make decisions that are aligned with our true self and our goals. Some may say it is a way to tap into the collective unconscious and access universal truths. At it’s very core it is that gut feeling we get when we just ‘know’
Benefits of unlocking your intuition
When you tap into your intuition, you can access a deeper level of understanding and insight. You can gain clarity and understanding of your life and decisions, and you can access creative solutions that would not have been available to you otherwise.
Intuition can also help you access your inner power and strength and by unlocking your intuition you can build a stronger connection to yourself and the world around you. When you access your inner wisdom, you can gain a greater understanding of yourself, your relationships, and your role in the world.
Opening yourself up to the gentle nudges of inspiration that come from your intuition can give you better answers to your questions. It can give you more meaningful and creative solutions to problems. In a nutshell, you’ll be thinking outside the box but that’s where the best solutions come from.
How to unlock your intuition
Developing your intuition is a process that takes time and practise. It is a journey of exploration and discovery but it is entirely possible. Nobody has to be born psychic to access their intuition. Here are some tips to help you unlock your intuition and tap into your inner wisdom
Practise meditation if you can. Meditation has loads of benefits and is a kind of quiet practise where a certain amount of time and effort is dedicated in order to pay special and very close attention to a meditation object. When you learn to focus and pay close attention, you can access your intuition more easily. This is because intuition is a very quiet voice in the crowded noise of ego and attitude. You got to listen out for it.
Spend time in nature. We have a whole module in our Magick Discovered course dedicated to the powerful healing effects of nature. It is the combination of being outside and moving about that gives your logic brain a break. So spending time in nature to quiet your mind, helps you to access your inner wisdom. Especially if you’re a physical person who prefers movement to sitting in quiet meditation.
Simply say yes and be open. Start by being open to the possibility that intuition can be a powerful source of insight and creative solutions. Things like listening to your gut, to your instincts or taking a leap of faith without doing the hours of research first. Paying attention to any signs, coincidences and your own feelings allows you to become open to your intuition. Rewarding your gut feelings through paying them attention will mean they’re easier to come through next time.
Unlock your intuition and get creative with problem solving
Once you have developed your intuition and accessed your inner wisdom, you can begin to unlock creative solutions. Creative solutions are often born out of our intuition, and they can be powerful tools for problem-solving and decision-making. Of course, creative solutions come in many forms and there’s no definitive list! For example, they can take the form of an entirely new idea if you’re stuck. They can come in the form of a different way of approaching a problem. But creative solutions often have problem solving, decision making or methods for finding new opportunities at their core.
Brainstorm by asking questions: Brainstorming is a great way to access creative solutions and start your solution session with a question. Then clear the mind and listen to intuitive answers. This can welcome different approaches and explore different possibilities.
Creative visualisation: Creative visualisation is a powerful tool for accessing your intuition. Visualise the outcome you want to create, keep in your mind’s eye the outcome and allow the answer for how to get there to come.
Journal: Journaling is a great way to access your intuition. Take time to free-write your questions, thoughts and feelings. Write about different approaches and ideas. Taking time to explore and experiment through writing can access insight and creative solutions.
Tarot and Lenormand for creative thinking: Tarot and lenormand cards are both powerful tools for accessing your intuition. Take some time to explore your inner world and see what new ideas and approaches the cards have to solve the problem.
Drawing: Art is a very expressive method to access your intuition. It doesn’t have to be great art, just spend time with your art tools to see what forms out of the shapes and colours. Have the problem in the front of your mind and experiment.
Things to remember in order unlock your intuition for creative problem solving
Intuition is a powerful force that resides within all of us. It is a source of wisdom and insight that we all have access to, so it isn’t a magickal gift that only a lucky few can tap into. Once it is unlocked, our intuition can be a powerful way to access insight in order to generate creative solutions to difficult problems.
Just remember to listen out for your intuition and pay attention to the insight it reveals. Trust that your intuition has your back and be open to the possibilities. Then explore those possibilities, and remain open to thinking outside the box to explore different approaches to solve the problem. Then of course, put your creative solutions into action and see what happens.
