This exercise to practice listening to intuition is called “The Intuitive Walkabout.” You essentially take a little stroll listening for information from your intuition. You can have a question on your mind or you can just intend a pleasant experience of noticing what is most important at that moment.
Walk around your house or yard. Notice urges to stop or change directions. Notice ideas about what rooms to visit and where to look. Just see what catches your attention. Focus there for a moment to see what ideas come to mind. Quiet your mental chatter and listen. Have your journal ready to capture ideas or possible solutions to problems you have been contemplating.
The purpose of this exercise is to notice what it feels like to connect to your intuition. This is a calm, almost meditative experience. Do it during a downtime when you don’t have to rush off to anywhere and there are no time constraints. Though the exercise doesn’t need to last long, only a few minutes really, it is important that you feel grounded and aren’t needing to rush off anywhere the first few times you try it. Being grounded is being fully present within your body. It happens naturally once you learn to let go the mental chatter that will knock you off balance.
