Exercises to Help Develop Intuition


Hello again everyone! I went to an intuitive workshop and want to share what I learned with you. The workshop was given by a somewhat well known psychic named John White. The meditation and the exercises were wonderful. Anyone can do them no matter how much experience they have had with intuition and they will improve, although the exercises require a partner.

The exercises and the meditation are designed to tune you into the way your right brain thinks. I hope this helps someone who is trying to develope their psychic abilities or to know something intuitively for the first time. It helped me greatly!


People work with 5 senses, seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling and tasting, and our psychic abilities work in the same way as you will see...

We closed our eyes. We relaxed. We told each part of our bodies to relax. We were in a state of perfect health. If there were any parts of our bodies that were ill we told them to relax.

Then as we meditated John said that our intuitive minds had a color and we should ask it what its color is. "If my intuitive mind had a color, what would it be?" My intuitive mind showed me its color. It was a deep purplish blue and then it became lighter and was a purplish pink, then it went back to purplish blue.

He said our intuitive mind had a symbol. "If my intuitive had a symbol, what would it be?" I was shown a dark horse galloping. It was a very deep brown with a black tail and a black mane.

Our intuitive mind had a sound. "If my intuitive mind had a sound, what would it be?" I saw a small bell but couldn't hear the sound and it didn't seem quite right. Then I saw huge bells in a bell tower and I could hear them in my mind loudly clanging.

Our intuitive mind had a book for us to read. "... What would it be?" I saw a book but couldn't see the title. It felt like literature though. Then I saw a clock tower and a dark castle, and the bell tower again and also my horse. It made me think of three books... Black Beauty, Beauty and the Beast, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. I'm not sure what the clock tower meant.

Our intuitive mind had a smell. "... What would it be?" I couldn't smell anything. I saw a pink rose. Then I noticed the stem and it came to me that it had been freshly cut. Then I smelt freshly mowed grass. I actually physically smelt the grass, and I've never had a psychic experience where I have smelled something before.

Our intuitive mind had a taste. "... What would it be?" I didn't taste anything, but I saw a bottle of ketchup. Weirdly enough I love ketchup and put it on a large number of things... :)

Our intuitve mind had a vitamin it wanted us to take. "... What would it be?" I couldn't taste anything this time either, but I saw the word Zinc and I saw two different pills which I later described to my Mom. She said she thought the pills I described were the vitamin A, and Zinc. I had no idea what Zinc looked like when I saw the pill.

He counted to five and we came out of the meditation. Then John began making up a story and would point to other people to continue the story. When you're reading someone it's just like telling a story only you aren't making it up. You are just saying whatever sensations come into your mind, just as though you are telling a story.

Then we split into groups of two people. One partner would give the other partner a name and age of a person that they knew, and the other partner would close their eyes and for 30 seconds they would say anything they sensed with their five senses.

He said that what you sense can never be wrong, so if it doesn't make sense it doesn't mean you are wrong, it means you are reading someone else besides the person who's name you were given. The information you recieve will not be wrong, although your interpretation of that information can be wrong, and even John White interpreted something wrongly once or twice in the class. :) Doesn't that make you feel better?

When you are given a name you can automatically connect with that person if they are alive. But a spirit is out in the spirit world, not here in our dimension, so it's not a good idea to read a spirit in this way, because unless the spirit comes into the room you would only be reading your partner's memory of that person.

Also it is good to say the person's age and gender (if the name can be either gender) because someone who is young can be very old in spirit and you might think they are elderly, and someone who is female might be very aggressive and you might think they were male, and visa versa with a sensitive man. So that makes it less confusing.

I did very well and was encouraged by it. My partner was not as intuitive as me but also did well. At one point when I was reading she gave me the name of someone who was depressed. She didn't think the person was so depressed that I would pick up on it or she wouldn't have given me his name. I am very empathic and really connected with this person. A heaviness came over me and I felt so awful! Everything was dark and I was so alone and depressed, and couldn't shake the feeling for awhile. She was crying a bit and said it was her father and she would call him. She hadn't realized his depression was very bad.

We also did past life recall with our partners. Look at your partner and say "If you were in another life what kind of clothes would you be wearing..." Go as long as you're seeing things, and if you can't see anything tell your partner to ask you any questions they think of. How old am I? Where do I live? Or whatever comes to mind. This is actually easier to do then the first exercise because your left brain is so sure that you're making it up, that it doesn't bother getting in the way as much.

I helped my partner understand her current life better. I saw her as a young woman in the sixties who was really wild and care-free, into drugs and partying. She told me later she had struggled with addictions in this life and was trying to mellow out. I would never have thought that about her! She helped me understand my abilities better and why I am psychic. She completely described me! I lived in the early 1900s and lived on a plantation. She described some of the abilities I have now.

I kept wanting to ask her how I felt about animals so I did and she told me that I liked domestic animals, but I liked wildlife more, I could connect with it better. I could communicate with animals, especially wild animals and they would come around me. I thought it was remarkable. That's exactly how I feel about animals and wildlife in this life.

The past life your partner remembers may be very similar to this life. Remember that we come here to learn things, and sometimes we must learn from the same experiences or learn the same things over and over to make it click. We are a spirit. We always were and always will be, so our next life will simply be a continuation, another chapter of one continuous life and we will be a lot like we were in this life, which is also why it's important that we work to improve. :)

Remember that it's okay to make mistakes when you are reading your partner. We are all learning.

All throughout today after going to the workshop last night I have been seeing flashes when I looked at people. I saw a little girl with one lady and thought she had two kids. I asked her if she had kids and she said she had two little girls, 4 and 6 and showed me their pictures. She gave me a big hug afterward and was happy! I have never done anything like that before and I know the excersizes helped me.

Lastly I want to say that my mother, who also took the workshop, used to have psychic abilities but hasn't had them in a long time. She did very well while she was reading at the workshop and was usually very accurate. It encouraged her to develope her gifts more. If you are having similar trouble, your gifts can start working again. You haven't lost them, you simply need to excersize your intuitive muscles.

I hope this encourages and helps someone.

Goddess bless,

I was not thinking one thing or another I was simply asking you a question on your opinion.

haha Heck no aram, trust me I believe everything can talk, and most everything has a mind. I've channeled my chakras before. Everything is energy. Somebody was on here the other day and said she thought she could understand the wind sometimes, but she knew she was really just being crazy because the wind is just air. I thought what?! Just air? Even an object can be channeled, I mean maybe it doesn't have a mind but it's still energy and some psychics as I'm sure you know can touch it and recieve information about where it came from etc. So yeah, I definately believe that the body has it's own mind. I mean, How else could it operate. But in other words you think it's the body talking and not the higher self. Thanks for your comments! 😊

you don't need a partner that is 'psychic', in reality everyone is my mother who doesn't have any lucid dreams, yesterday before she woke saw a white car going to hit her, when she walked that morning one almost did, but she didn't get ran over because she knew it would happen. Everyone can do it, trust me haha, you just need a person that loves and understands you

depends on how you precieve the body, if you only precieve it as a pyhsical object, well then you wouldn't get very far

Our intuitive mind also had a feeling, I think I left that part out. Of course I felt love... What else would I have felt? I'm a bubbly lovey-dovey bear. Well, in my case I guess I'm a lovey-dovey horse, but that's just weird to say. Lol I'm glad this helped you all!
Yes, sometimes I have put my hand over food and if my body wants me to eat it, my hand will get reiki or it will just stop as it passes over the food. Do you think that's actually the body talking, or the Higher Self talking?

Anna I have to say I really enjoyed this post one because you used 'intuitve' and secondly because you spoke of knowing, which pill to take without even knowing, which one it is. I actually got lucky enough to do an expierment with pills because I had gone to a 'healer' and she was extremely amazing at feeling the certain pill for each individual by scanning over it with her hand. Of course, some might say... Well it's just luck. It's not, though of course it isn't all guesswork, medical degrees and such help haha. But overall to do that with anyone is amazing. Finally, she suprised me with telling me to choose from the ll bins to pick, which ones I felt strongly towards. Amazing what the body knows it needs.
