Rely on your intuitive faculties

Sometimes remembering who you are means opening yourself to bring forth inner guidance that will help you understand yourself with greater clarity.

This is easier said than done, of course. And in my experience, the best practice for doing so is to put yourself in situations that demand total presence.

Personally, I use yoga. The total presence allows you to stop and listen to the voice of your true self. Even if you don’t like what it has to say. You listen anyway.

After all, listening is a form of loving. And as George Washington Carver once said, “There is nothing that will not reveal its secrets if you love it enough.”

How does yoga help your intuitive powers?
