Intuition is important and everyone has it. It is often mentioned that a person should learn to listen to their gut feeling. If you feel that your intuition is lost or isn’t working, there are some reasons that you might feel like you have lost your intuition.
Why Is My Intuition Lost?
Here are some reasons that your intuition might feel lost:
- You are stressed or depressed.
- You are focused on things that are of the world.
- You rely too much on logical thinking.
- You don’t ask for guidance.
- You are cluttered.
- You aren’t connected to your body.
- Stressed and Depressed
Stress and depression can cause your mind to race and cause you to not be able to listen. When your intuition is talking, it is often quiet or comes in the form of a gut feeling. When you are always thinking negatively, it can be hard to hear your inner voice.
If this is happening to you, you can get professional help to help you work through your thoughts and feelings and this can help you to unblock your intuition.
- Focused on Things of the World
Being too focused on things of the world can cause you to not listen to yourself. You need to take time to focus on yourself and to listen to what you are saying. People that are perfectionists often are too busy trying to please everyone else that they don’t take time to listen to their own intuition.
Intuition is part of who you are internally, and you need to listen to yourself more.
- Rely Too Much on Logical Thinking
Intuition isn’t about logic, and you can’t make it be. You have to stop rationalizing everything that your intuition tells you or you will miss what it means. Don’t be scared to trust your intuition and when you make a decision, listen to it.
It doesn’t mean that you should never be logical. Logic is important but it can also fit in with intuition and can be just as valid.
- Asking for Guidance
Sometimes all you have to do is to ask for guidance and your spirit guides will show up and give you the answers that you need. If you aren’t asking, you won’t get the answers. Ask your higher power to give you guidance in your situations.
When you feel cluttered and overwhelmed, you might not be able to listen to your intuition. You need to take time to hear yourself more clearly. Create a place in your life where you can be calm and peaceful and where you can give yourself space to connect with your intuition.
- Not Connected to Your Body
Everyone has intuition and it comes from your body. If you aren’t connected with your body, then you won’t be able to hear what your body is telling you. This can cause you to miss out on important answers and important guidance.
Since intuition is in your body, you need to check on your body, be open, feel the sensations and listen to what your body is telling you. If you feel tightness or you feel overwhelmed, this can be your inner self telling you something.
Can You Make Your Intuition Stronger?
You can make your intuition stronger and here is how:
- Make time for yourself each day.
- Learn to relax and be calm.
- Detox from social media.
- Notice your intuition and the signals your body is giving you.
- Ask for guidance when you need it.
- Go out in nature.
- Spend time alone.
- Journal about your intuition both the times its accurate and wrong.
Your intuition is what helps to guide you in your mind and your body. It will help you to make good decisions and to stay away from things that can hurt you. If you aren’t trusting your intuition, then you have to build this trust and learn to listen to the signals that you are getting. If you feel lost and that your intuition is gone, pay attention to yourself more.
If you have been ignoring your intuition for a long time, then it will take time to get strong again. Your intuition can be so hidden that you aren’t able to hear it anymore. If you have grown up in a place where you were told to not listen to your gut feeling but to trust in logic more, you might be stuck but you can rebuild your inner trust. Once you rebuild your inner trust, your intuition will be stronger.
Ask for guidance when you need it and listen to your inner voice. By practicing and trusting yourself, you will be able to hear your intuition better. If your intuition is blocked, this can be your feminine energy that is blocked. Learn how to unblock it to make your intuition stronger.
