Top Three Steps That Are Essential For Clearer Intuition!

I am often asked what the simplest steps to increase one’s intuition are. To simplify as much as possible, the top three steps that I believe are essential in creating a better intuitive connection are:

First: Take three deep breaths every few hours throughout your day.

A breath is in a sense our soul, so it’s essential to get the breath balanced so that we receive clear guidance. Putting up a post-it note in your car and on your computer that says “Breathe X 3” will remind you to take in those three deep breaths through the nose and out through the mouth. By doing this one simple action, you will find that you will feel more confident and open to receiving guidance or messages from the Divine.

Second: Know your ego voice!

The more that you understand the difference between your ego voice versus your intuitive voice, the less time you will distract yourself with worrying if you are getting a true message or hearing the divine properly. Some top points about ego voice: Ego never acknowledges change – it is stuck in the past and uses past situations to project into your future. Ego gives problems or drama, never the solution. It will always compare ourselves to others telling us we are either better or less then someone else.

Third: Know Your Intuitive Voice!

Your intuition is kind and always looking for the best possible solution. It helps you identify change where ego resists change. Intuition is direct, to the point and never promotes fear. Your intuition is calm, no matter what the message that you are receiving is. It makes you feel confidant, at peace and like you can move forward with thinking of “what if” or “how”. Intuition makes us all feel equal with others and keeps things simple!

Ego and Intuition work hand in hand. The ego gives you drive and allows you to learn. Where intuition guides you with no judgment and includes everyone with love and compassion.

Spend everyday taking three deeps breaths at least three times a day (think morning, noon and night) and observing your thoughts as they come. You will start to distinguish your ego voice and your intuitive voice. Keep this article handy as a reference or save it on a mobile device to make it easy to check in with as you observe your ego and intuition as thoughts come in.

I believe in you and that you are deeply intuitive. This is my truth!

Blessings and Love,

    Thank you for this article. I appreciated the reminder of what my intuition’s “voice” sounds like. I needed to be reminded that I always have a calm and loving inner guide and I don’t need to be swept along the path of fear and anger.

    • Tara Taylor

      I appreciate your comment:). Once we distinguish the difference between our intuitive and ego voice, it is much easier to flow through life with more ease and trust.

    This really helped me to see the visual in how some of my discussions turn out (both good and bad). Truly great advice and guidelines to a deeper growth.
    Happy New Year!

      Thank you for your comment Judy:). Blessings and Love, Tara Taylor

  • This is very interesting! To add from my own experience, I feel as though your ego tries to point you towards the easiest/least risky path, while your intuition tries to guide you towards the RIGHT path – the path that will lead you to what you need; your heart’s desire; your purpose; lessons you need to learn.  It’s very interesting that you say intuition doesn’t come from a place of fear. I feel as though sometimes fear signals that your intuition is warning you to stay away/go towards something, so I’ll have to reflect more on that. Maybe that’s the ego responding to the intuition! I will definitely be thinking about this throughout the day. Great post!

    Much love,

      Thank you for your comment Nina:). You hit it spot on re
      “Maybe that’s the ego responding to the intuition”(your intuition is
      quite clear! LOL)…intuition will warn you with clear direction and will not
      invoke a fear. Fear is ego and it always responds to our intuition. Think of it
      this way, intuition speaks first and ego speaks directly second. Ego will use
      words like “but, how, should, could and would quite often when it speaks.
      I would love to hear your progress throughout the day while observing your
      intuitive and ego voice.:)

      Blessings and love, Tara Taylor

        Interesting! fear , ego and intuition when do they start going hand in hand? these days I find it very common. A useful piece , No doubt. Thanks Tara.

  • Tara,
    I love this!  I never heard anyone describe the ego voice or and intuitive voice like you did and I like it! 

    “Ego never acknowledges change – it is stuck in the past and uses past situations to project into your future. Ego gives problems or drama, never the solution. It will always compare ourselves to others telling us we are either better or less then someone else.”

    So true!!  The whole change thing struck me profoundly.  Certainly sometimes I resist change and see it as a threat (my ego).  But for the most part, I like change.  It keeps things fresh.  But this guy I’ve been dating is VERY resistant to change, more so than about anyone else I’ve ever met.  He’s not loud or obnoxious, like I think a lot of people are who have “big egos,” but I still could see that he lived in his ego the majority of the time (if not all the time).  Any ideas on how to get someone to SEE that they’re living in their ego and tune into their intuition more?  I know everyone has their own paths, and evolves at their own rate.  But if you have any suggestions on how to help someone else recognize it’s their EGO at work, I’d love to hear them!

    Hello Tara
     Thanks for the clarification between the EGOS VOICE and the INTUITIVE VOICE and i am now wanting to recognize and remain aware and awake as to which one i am listening to either consciously or unconsciously.

    I loved your article!!! I will do this more often 🙂 Sometimes I feel like I’m not intuitive at all But i think it’s because my ego voice is too loud Sometimes.

  • Eva

    Thank you very much for the very practical advice, very helpful!!

  • TDL reader

    Great article,however please clarify something.
    You said ego dosen’t acknowledge change,then
    in the next paragraph you state ego gives you drive
    and ALLOWS you to learn.
    My thoughts are drive and learning are all about
    change.Seems like a contradiction.I had a Ah Ha moment
    when I read about ego resists change,then was totally
    lost when I read the second statement.
    Please clarify.Thanks

    • Tara Taylor

      Thank you
      for your comment and great questionJ. I think you would love one of my
      other articles “Love Your Ego, Love Your Life”, as I go more into depth about
      the ego’s purpose and about “ego gives you drive and allows you to learn” and what
      I mean by that coming from ego’s thinking. For example we can learn something however
      doesn’t mean we will implement the change because of fear, worthiness, etc…ego
      emotions;). I try to show that both ego and intuition both play a role in our soul’s
      progression, the key to balance them both so that they work together.
