Meditation to Develop Your Intuitive Self
Intuition is when you know or sense something that you can't
"logically" explain. It is one of the faculties of an awakened, aware
person. Intuition lets you know what to do within any given situation.
As Yogi Bhajan says, when you talk to your soul you are talking to
infinity. When you talk to your soul, all knowledge and intuition is
yours. One technique to learn to develop your intuition is to start
making decisions in 9 seconds or less. When you put your mental
processes under that kind of pressure, the higher faculty of intuition
"kicks in" and allows the right choice to present itself.
Here's is a meditation to enhance your
intuition. It was practiced and taught by a holy man named Rishi Dusht
Daman, who said of all the meditations he did, this was the greatest
meditation. He lived on the top of a cold and frozen mountain and
meditated all day long at the side of a beautiful arctic lake. His
meditations were said to be so powerful and pure that God Himself came
down to Rishi Dusht Daman to find out who this great, devoted man was.
God told him that he needed such a great saint to re-incarnate on the
earth to teach the masses about the glory of God, love, and peace
within. Rishi Dusht Daman became Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Guru of
"Sit in comfortable position, crossed
legged with the spine very erect. (If you need to sit in a chair, sit
forward so that your feet are on the ground and the spine remains
straight.) Make the right hand into a fist with the Jupiter finger (the
index finger) extended and pointing straight up. Close your eyes and
sit quietly, unmoving in this position for seven minutes (set a timer).
Let your breath slow down and self regulate. When the seven minutes are
finished, inhale deeply, hold the breath and stretch your right arm up
as high as you can (keeping the fist and the pointed finger). After
15-20 seconds, powerfully exhale, inhale again, hold the breath and
stretch every fiber of your body up. Again, after 15-20 seconds exhale
powerfully and relax. Relax a couple of minutes and then shake your
arms above your head for a few seconds to finish.
