Today I want to share with you the best intuition meditation scripts. When you use meditation for intuition, you will learn to hear your inner voice.
Intuition is one of humankind’s most important skills. When you tap into your intuition, you can hear the deepest wisdom from within your own mind. Your intuition will empower you to let go, to trust yourself, and to make the most of the power of your subconscious mind (read my guide to subconscious mind power techniques).
In The Synthesis of Yoga, Indian philosopher Sri Aurobindo states that intuition is the ability to know something without conscious reasoning. And in A Popular Dictionary of Buddhism, Christmas Humphreys states that intuition resides between the universal mind and the individual mind. You have to quieten your individual mind so it connects with the universal mind. Then you will hear your intuition.
Meditation helps. Particularly the Third Eye Meditation Technique.
Traditional Intuition Meditation Script
The following is an ancient meditation for intuition. It’s used in yoga and Buddhism. It involves meditating on your third eye chakra.
In Man, Myth and Magic – Volume 19, Richard Cavendish states that the third eye is the key to perception beyond sight. In this meditation for intuition, we will tap into the third eye.
This is my favourite intuition meditation scripts. You will be surprised what insights you uncover.
- To start using meditation for intuition, have good posture. Kneel, stand, or sit. If sitting, place your feet shoulder-width apart, knees directly above ankles. Roll your shoulders then let them relax. Gently sway your head then relax. Tuck your chin in a little to elongate your neck.
- Now we want to use Shinu mudra, the best mudra for intuition. Tuck your middle finger and thumb inwards so that they touch at the tips. Hold your other fingers out straight
- Close your eyes. Take 25 mindful breaths to stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system. When you do this, you will relax and reduce amygdala activity. As a result, you will feel less stressed.
- Recite this mantra for intuition: “I am receiving messages from within”.
- Focus on your Third Eye (just a little above the middle of your eyebrows). In yoga, the Third Eye chakra is regarded as the “Seat of Intuition”.
- Imagine pure white light radiating outwards from your third eye. The white light fills the space around you.
- Continue to meditate like this for at least ten minutes. You will hear your inner voice. Recognise this insight. Say to yourself, “Thank you for this insight.”
- Gently open your eyes. Write down any specific messages or insights you received. Now express gratitude for the meditation. And that’s the end of our insight meditation script.
Guided meditation for intuition
One of the best ways to use meditation for intuition is through binaural beats. This is an excellent alternative to using an intuition meditation script. Binaural beats are a series of tones and sounds that affect brain waves.
To listen to binaural beats, you must use headphones. While listening, the beats will induce theta brain waves. These brainwaves put you in a profound state of relaxation. You will notice a feeling of dampening, a relaxing of your brain. This is your brain creating theta waves, which correspond to a deep state of relaxation.
While you are relaxed, you will experience more intuition. Your conscious mind is relaxing, and your subconscious is opening, presenting intuitive experiences.
Link Between Meditation And Intuition
There is a direct link between meditation and intuition. Meditation is the practice of focusing the mind on the present moment. Originally a Hindu, Buddhist, and yogic practice, meditation has grown to be a holistic health exercise that is used in clinical settings and counselling. It helps with stress, anxiety, depression, negative thinking, feeling overwhelmed, and many other problems. There are many ways to meditate, including visualization, mantras, mindful breathing, and mindfulness of the present moment.
Okay. So, what is intuition?
Intuition is the mind’s ability to gain knowledge without conscious thinking. It is about acquiring unconscious knowledge, insight, and inner sensing. It is an important concept in the West and in Eastern religion and spirituality.
Yogi Sri Aurobindo states that intuition is based on psychological experiences and self-awareness. Sigmund Freud denounced intuition. Carl Jung, however, called intuition “perception via the unconscious.”
There are real benefits of intuition.
Research psychologist Gary Klein states that under time constraints, experts in certain fields can tap into their past experiences to make quick decisions without the need for rational processing (the “recognition primed decision”).
You can use meditation for intuition to access your insight. There are many ways to do this, including the extremely powerful Shambhavi Mudra.
When I give online meditation lessons, my students are often surprised by the insights and intuition they gain.
Why you need to use meditation for intuition
Below I will share an intuition meditation script. It will open your insight. But before we get to that, let’s consider the benefits of insight and intuition.
Scientific research shows that our intuition is often accurate. There are many theories regarding the role of intuition and instinct. David Myers PhD, a social psychologist at Hope College, says that the right brain is continually scanning the environment and registering information. This information is then fed back to the body in the form of gut instincts and various physical sensations.
Therefore, to hear your intuition, listen to your body.
Meditation and intuition increase awareness and focus
When you tap into instincts you can be both more aware and more focused.
Judith Orloff PhD, who is an authority in helping empaths, says, “Living more intuitively demands that you’re living in the moment, And that makes for a more passionate life.”
Intuition and instincts can be wrong at times.
“Emotions hamper decision-making,’ says Margarita Tartakovsky. “For instance, blindly falling in love with a house, and paying little attention to the inspection results, may leave you with a money pit,”. But at the same time, your intuition and instincts are often your wisest counsel.
Because of false-positive feedback, we tend to remember when our instinct was right more than when it was wrong.
For instance, I remember when the phone rang early in the morning one day, and my intuition correctly informed me that it was my mother calling to say that my father had passed away, But I am more likely to remember that event than to remember times my intuition was wrong.
Our bias to remember times instinct was right means we expect it to be correct. But it is often wrong.
However, this is where meditation helps. When you use meditation for intuition you become more aware and you can decide to follow your instincts or not.
5 Benefits of Meditation for Intuition
1: It works
If you have ever felt as though some secret voice inside your head were guiding you, you have experienced a moment of intuition.
Take this example:
One day I woke up at 6am and immediately jumped out of bed. I told my girlfriend to get up too. I was panicked. I headed to the phone. It started to ring. My mother was calling from England. I knew it was bad news. She told me my father had passed away. It was a moment of intuition. I knew something was up. And I was most definitely right.
Intuition exists so that your mind can feed you important information quickly (1). What happens is that the body uses physiological sensations to send signals. Researchers (2) from The University of South Wales wanted to prove how intuition worked. They measured how gut instinct leads to physiological changes. They did this by testing people’s skin conductance—an indicator of physiological arousal—during a decision making test. The researchers observed changes in skin conductance that shows that intuition leads to a physiological reaction. This explains how this innate ability works. Therefore, when we “follow gut instinct” we respond to physiological changes
When someone tells you they’re “following their intuition” what they truly mean is that they are experiencing a physiological reaction that is informing them about how to make a decision. Meditation quiets the mind and silences thoughts, which makes us more aware of other information in the psyche, including intuition.
2: Gut Instincts of Threats
Often we experience a gut instinct that something is going to go wrong. It fees like unease in the body. Listen to your inner voice when you experience discomfort in the body. You’ve experienced this before. It’s that sudden feeling of unease. It’s most commonly felt in the pit of the stomach, a sort of nausea created by anxiety. Ignore this sensation at your peril.
Your body instinctively knows when something is wrong. Your mind is constantly interpreting information from the environment and using that information to tell your bran where you are and what’s going on.
A few years back scientists from the University of Iowa decided to investigate the role of intuition and instinct. They had research subjects play Chance with stacks of money and card decks. Different cards revealed whether or not the subject had won the money. What the research subjects were not aware of, however, was that the card decks were rigged. The decks had been stacked so that two of the decks yielded large payouts and the other two consistently led to losses. After 50 cards the test subjects began to favour the card deck that was paying out.
But here’s the truly amazing thing about that test. Within ten cards the players began to show physical reactions to the cards. When the players reached for the “bad” deck, their hands started to sweat. Jonah Lehrer, a contributor to Wired, says “The players instinctively knew which decks were good and bad, although the subject still had little inkling of which card piles were the most lucrative. The subject’s feelings figured out the game first.”
When you use meditation for intuition you will be more aware of these kinds of warning signals that your intuition is sending you.
3: Hear your inner voice
There are times when your inner voice will warn you that something is wrong. You’d be wise to listen.
Here’s an example from my own life. Recently I was in a bar when a big burly guy came in, narrowed eyes scanning the place. I sensed immediately that something was wrong with this guy, so I asked the man behind the bar if he knew who he was. Turns out the guy was a troublemaker and a vandal who had previously been arrested for smashing up a nearby restaurant. Thankfully I listened to my instinct and kept away from this guy.
What I noticed at that time was that my feet and hands suddenly felt warmer. My body was redirecting blood to my hands and feet—the classic “fight or flight” response to a threat. Thing is, if I hadn’t been using meditation for intuition I would not have notice these sensations, or at least, I wouldn’t have been conscious enough to respond properly.
“Your body is a powerful intuitive communicator,” explains Judith Orloff, author of Second Sight. “Intuition provides warning signs. If you have a gut feeling about your body — that something is toxic, weak or ‘off’ — listen to it.”
Have you experienced similar sensations? Times when your body was trying to tell you something. Did you listen to the warnings? If not, what happened?
4: Your inner psychic
Gut instincts can be altruistic.. We can feel people’s emotions. Sometimes we see a person and we immediately get the sense that something is wrong and that they need help. This is especially true for highly compassionate people (like most of THE DAILY MEDITATION’s readers)
What’s happening in this situation is that the mind is unconsciously scanning the body language of the other person. This happens all the time, without our conscious involvement. We are constantly scanning people, interpreting their moves and actions, judging whether they’re a friend or enemy, whether they’re happy or sad, whether they can help us or whether we can help them.
When you use an intuition meditation script you will be more aware of these times and more able to act. Have you ever experienced a moment when you saw someone and immediately had a very strong urge to help them? This desire to help others is hardwired into us at birth. It’s a genetic type of compassion. The reason for it is quite simple. We humans are not very strong on our own. In the wild we rely on groups or tribes in order to survive. We’re constantly looking at the world from that tribal mentality. If we see someone we can help we do so, because we know we may soon require help ourselves.
If your intuition is telling you that you should go and help someone, do it. Odds are you’ll make a real impact on that person’s day and they’ll be truly thankful that they met you. And besides, nothing on Earth feels better than helping another human being (well, except maybe helping an animal). So because meditation boosts intuition it also makes us more able to help people in need.
Sometimes your intuition helps you find your skills, and this happens through confidence. Maybe you’re a confident dancer. May you feel great when you’re playing billiards. Maybe you’re confident around other people. This is your intuition guiding you towards your talents.
Many truly talented people have a terrible time trusting their talents. They overthink everything. They’re constantly asking themselves, “Have I got this? Do I know what I’m doing? Am I prepared?” and so on and so on. Their mind and body constantly send signals to their brain saying that yes, they are one hundred percent in control and good to go, but they don’t listen, they still doubt themselves.
I spent a lot of my life touring England as a theatre actor. There were many times when I would question whether I knew my lines or not. I felt confident but I didn’t trust the way I felt. This led me to stepping onstage doubting myself. Instead of truly going for it and launching into my lines confidently, I questioned myself. I didn’t trust my instincts. Not trusting myself led to worry, and worry made me perform at a less than optimum level. Essentially, I choked.
In How We Decide, Jonah Lehrer says: “Choking is a vivid example of the havoc that can be caused by too much thought. Such deliberate thought processes interfere with the trained movements of the muscles.” In other words, because I was thinking too much onstage, I disrupted my own performance.
If you’re feeling good about a specific talent or skill, there’s a reason for that confidence and you should believe in yourself. Follow your instincts. “Once you’ve developed expertise in a particular area it’s important to trust your emotions when making decisions in that domain,” Lehrer says.
6: Good psychic feelings
There are times when you feel, deep down, that something is right. Maybe it’s the feeling that you should change career, or the feeling that you’ve just met your next boyfriend or girlfriend, or the feeling that you should sign up at the gym. Major decisions like these tend to create strong feelings inside of us, and we should probably follow those feelings. Your instincts are there for a reason. Follow them.
As Orloff concludes: “Your intuition and instincts let you find relationships that resonate for you, instead of what looks good on paper. They let you connect with people on a heart level. They lead to a very deep experience of life instead of just letting life wash over you.”
Listen to your intuition. Follow your instincts. They are powerful guides in your life.
