Feeling overwhelmed? Not sure how to get out of that funk? No worries, you’re definitely not alone. It is the nature of our mind to think all day long. When we go about our busy lives, it can be hard to tap into our intuition in the midst of a lot of noise.
Sharpening your intuition takes consistent practice.
On the energetic level, when the mind quiets, insight develops. In the absence of distraction, we are able to connect to ourselves and hear ourselves think.
When you are still, your intuition gets louder.
Throughout the past decade, finding stillness in the midst of chaos has done wonders in maintaining peace and balance. The longer I practice, the better I am at tapping into my intuition when making tough decisions.
With a busy schedule and a busier mind, taking the time to find stillness may be tricky. However, five minutes of practice can be as effective as an hour.
The sincerity of the effort matters far more than elapsed time since it’s all about stepping out of minutes and hours and into moments.
When we don’t listen to our gut, we get stuck in a rut.
If you have been feeling burned out or about to reach a breaking point, take a look at these 12 powerful ways to help you gain clarity. Which tips can you start applying to your day ahead?
1. Rest better.
Having a hard time sleeping? Did you know the biggest reason for insomnia is worrying about insomnia? Did you know your body gets almost the same rest when you lie still in bed as it would if you were sleeping?
2. Eat in silence.
Try eating one of your meals without a newspaper, book, or the TV in front of you. Just you and your meal. This helps us to be more mindful when we eat.
3. Reduce the sugar intake.
So tough! But little by little each day, just like with #2, mindful steps of consuming less sweets will help you rely less on sugar to fuel your days!
4. Get (and stay) active.
Whether it’s yoga, cycling, or dancing, try to make working out a routine in your schedule. Here are powerful chakra balancing yoga poses you can do at home!
5. Take comfort in being present.
Even starting your day off with 1 minute of meditating will do wonders for your mental and energetic clarity!
If you don't have time in the morning, you can still take a minute out of any part of your day to be present.
6. Have self-compassion.
What is one thing you can treat yourself to today that will bring you joy? What is one thing you can forgive yourself for? Are there any self-criticisms that you’ve been replaying?
Meditation helps us to understand the nature of our thoughts as simply thoughts and our relationship to them, so that our thoughts can be more at our service rather than the other way around. Here's how to clear your money chakra through meditation.
8. Invest in what makes you happy.
Align your time by prioritizing it around with what inspires you. There's an art to staying inspired, and it's simple!
9. Learn something new.

10. Set a small goal or start a mini-project.
Having a small goal with a beginning, middle, and end helps give our mental mind something to focus on and reduces the likelihood of negative self-talk to creep in. By giving the mental mind a project (like a puzzle or cleaning out a kitchen drawer), we are also our energy to recharge.
If you have a lot on your mind, get all your thoughts down on paper. Writing out all that is on your mind will give your emotions an outlet. After a week of daily writing, you'll begin to notice a sense of mental, emotional, and energetic clarity.
12. Reiki self-care.
There’s been a lot of hype around the health benefits of Reiki energy healing despite the holistic practice having been around for centuries. In fact, Reiki has been covered quite a bit in mainstream media, from Newsweek, The Drs, Oprah, and even Vanity Fair.
Regardless of the hype, Reiki has been used to enhance the effectiveness of various healing modalities for many decades. The healing energy will go where it is needed and do what is needed to facilitate shifts and natural healing.
