Developing Intuition with Meditation

The more we get in touch with our deeper permanent self through meditation, the easier spontaneous insights rise up to our waking consciousness as intuition.

Intuition seems to be independent of rhyme or reason, but in fact, it is the wonderful culmination of all our work to open up to our deepest reservoir of information developed in deep meditation.

The ability to rely on intuition most likely does not happen from one moment of blindness to the next being full of Light. Rather, over a period of time and practice while listening to the deep voice within which I call the Holy Vibration, we open wide the channel between our little personal ego and the Grand Keeper of knowledge.

What is known to us on the intuitive level can be increased through sincere efforts and time in silent meditation.

Mantra repetition

Mantra repetition is a practice that takes us deeper and deeper through the layers of self-centered thought to the open reservoir of unlimited thought and knowledge.

Using the mantra is like knocking on the door of Self. If we knock long enough we are bound to get a response, and be able to peek through the door to the unlimited beyond.

To use your mantra for gaining intuition sit quietly in meditation pose, hands folded in lap, eyes closed and begin regular even breathing, such as one count to breathe in and one count to breathe out. Do not hold your breath at any time. Keep up the rhythm during silent meditation but do not speak the counts.

When your body has calmed, substitute mental repetition of your mantra for the counting. If you don't have a mantra, pick a short phrase that is uplifting to you of from your religion. A universal peace mantra is Om Shanti.

While sitting still and saying your mantra you may become aware of the vibration of your mantra, seeming to emanate from under the crown of your head and heard in your mind as gently rushing wind or water.

At this time stop saying the mantra words and concentrate on listening to the inner vibration, the rushing wind that I call the Holy Vibration. The Holy Bible refers to this experience as the Word of God that supports creation. Other religions call the same experience Naam, Amen, Om.

Listening to the Om opens wide your door of meditation, so much so that when you quickly need to come up with an answer to a problem the best response quickly comes to mind. We call this experience intuition. The knowing without reason. But definitely a knowing.

Take time to develop intuition. Isn't it handy to be able to come to the right answers for each situation with the least amount of hassle?
