Intuition is a valuable asset that we all process if we are able to understand how to use it and harness its power. In this article I share with you how intuition is developed and why developing your intuitive abilities, it all about you going on a journey of self-discovery, learning about yourself and reaching your full potential. Once you have unlocked your intuitive abilities, you will be able to use your intuition as a guiding system in all aspects of your life, to help you achieve success, fulfilment and happiness.
These are the benefits of developing your intuition:
1. Enhanced Mind
Meditation is great for developing intuition. According to several studies When you start meditating the frontal lobes of the brain are more active. The frontal lobe is the part of the brain that controls higher cognitive functions including problem-solving, memory, planning, judgment, emotion and expression.
The gray matter of the anterior part of the frontal lobe, the prefrontal cortex, is the most complex part of the brain and is responsible for the regulation of cognitive, emotional, and behavioural functioning. Which is important for positive human qualities such as concentration, creativity, and our ability to think abstractly. Also, give us the ability to experience human happiness and enjoyment of life.
Studies using EEG have shown that Meditation activates the prefrontal cortex (“higher brain”) and strengthens communication between the prefrontal cortex and different areas of the brain while deactivating the amygdala (“fear centre”). Located in the temporal lobe of the brain, also part of the limbic system within the brain, which is responsible for the processing of memory, survival instincts, and emotional reactions.

2. Better Health and Wellbeing
Once your mind is in balance, your body will be in balance as well which will improve your overall physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. A balanced mind and body reduces stress on your immune system, decreases any anxiety, tension headaches, ulcers, insomnia, muscle and joint problems.

You will experience states of higher consciousness and your consciousness will evolve in time. the problems in your life become less significant.
