If you wanted to be great at a sport, a natural
necessity in your training would involve first assessing what muscles and
systems of the body you’ll use most, and then building an exercise plan around
that information. In fact, you would likely need physical conditioning before
you could even take certain risks, or take more challenging steps in your
performance. In a similar way intuition and self-awareness are much the same
and take time, practice and exercise before we can engage them at a high level.
Fortunately, there are exercises we can do to grow our intuition and awareness. Each
region of the brain has a specific, dedicated focus and related areas of
function, and so we can target those areas we want to enhance or improve. The
artistic right hemisphere, for example, is dedicated to the creative self: art,
music, poetry, imaginative/creative pursuits AND intuition. In other words, if
you increase your diet of the arts and exercise your creativity through a
regular artistic pursuit, you can build your sense of self-knowing and
intuition–which means that knowing which career is best for you can be
supported by writing poetry. Knowing if a relationship needs a change can be
assisted by painting. Deciding where your life is out of balance can be aided
by learning to play an instrument.
Two things to keep in mind: you do not have to be artistic or
“good” at art to benefit , nor are these the only
solutions you’ll need to find the answers you seek, or to grow your intuition –
but it will give you a great advantage and could be fun!!!
