How intuition Can Empower relationships

How your intuition can support you in your relationships…

  1. Tuning into gut feelings:
    Pay attention to those little feelings in your gut that tell you something maybe wrong.

    If you have a bad feeling about someone or something connected to your relationship, trust your intuition and take a step back to reassess what it is your intuition is trying to tell you. Maybe it’s something you need to contribute.

    It could be your own insecurities, e.g. fear of rejection etc. triggering these feelings or it could be something else not yet clear yet your intuition knows. I point out the difference in my article questioning is your gut feeling always right.
  2. Being present:
    When you are with someone, make an effort to be fully present in the moment. This means putting aside distractions like your phone or other devices and really listening to what the other person is saying. This can open up a channel for your intuition to guide you.

    When you are fully engaged in the moment with your partner, you are better able to pick up on subtle cues and non-verbal communication that can provide valuable insights into their thoughts and feelings.

    By quieting your mind and focusing on what your partner is saying, you create space for your intuition to surface and help you understand the underlying emotions and meanings behind their words.
  3. Trusting yourself:
    Develop a stronger connection with your inner voice. As you begin to rely on your intuition more, you will develop a stronger sense of self-trust. This can help you make better decisions in your relationships.

    It can give you the confidence to follow a path that maintains your individual identity and happiness, allowing you to contribute to the partnership in a more authentic and meaningful way. It’s natural to want to compromise and make sacrifices for your partner, but it’s equally important to prioritize your own needs and aspirations. By staying true to yourself and pursuing your own goals, you not only continue to grow as an individual but also bring new experiences and perspectives to the relationship.

    Remember, a strong relationship is built on the foundation of two individuals who are secure in themselves and committed to growing together while also pursuing their own personal journeys. It enhances mutual respect, understanding, and appreciation for each other’s uniqueness.
  4. Being mindful:
    Stay calm and mindful. Quietening the noise of our busy minds helps unlock intuition. By focusing on the present moment and becoming more aware of your thoughts and feelings, you can train yourself to better understand your circumstances and those of others.

    A heightened awareness from intuition can also help you appreciate the small moments of joy and gratitude in your partnership, strengthening your bond and creating a sense of shared intimacy.

    When you are calm, you are better able to communicate effectively, listen attentively, and respond thoughtfully to your partner’s needs and concerns. This can help prevent misunderstandings and conflicts from escalating, leading to more productive discussions and resolutions.
  5. Allowing time to reflect:
    Taking time to reflect can be a powerful tool in unlocking intuition. When we pause and give ourselves space to think, we allow our minds to quiet down and tune into our inner thoughts and feelings. Journaling is a useful means for this.

    This introspection can help you connect with your subconscious mind, where intuition often resides.

    It’s important to take time to reflect on your relationships. This allows you to process your thoughts and feelings and can help you gain clarity on any issues that may arise.

The role of intuition in relationships can be valuable

Studies indicate that being intuitive (rather than systematic) tends toward greater empathy when relating to others…

Empathically accurate people may tend to rely more on intuitive rather than systematic thought when perceiving others.

Ma-Kellams et al. 2016, Pubmed

This can help in business and personal relationships.

An intuitive ability to understand and perceive the feelings, thoughts, and motivations of others can help to build better relationships. For example, your intuition may help you pick up on subtle cues and signals. You sense what others are thinking and feeling, even if they are not saying it directly.

Situations where intuition helps relationships

Relationship situation examples…

You understand someone else’s perspective

Intuition can help you understand the experiences and emotions of others. You intuitively know how you can better understand the needs and desires of others, which can help to build stronger and more meaningful relationships, personally and in your career.

When you’re feeling uncomfortable around someone

If you have a gut feeling that something is off in your relationship. Your intuition may be telling you that the other person is not being honest with you or that they are not treating you with the respect you deserve.

Take a step back and evaluate the specific behaviors or actions that are causing you to feel this way. Be honest with yourself.

Remember that you deserve to be treated with honesty and respect in all your interactions, and it’s important to prioritize your well-being in any relationship.

When you are considering taking your relationship to the next level

If you are thinking about moving in with someone, getting engaged, or getting married, it’s important to listen to your intuition. Your inner voice may be telling you that you are not ready for this step, or that your partner is not the right person for you.

When you are feeling uncertain about your relationship

If you are questioning whether or not your relationship is healthy or fulfilling, it’s important to listen to your intuition. It may be telling you that you need to make changes in your relationship, or that it’s time to move on.

When you are feeling unsafe in your relationship

If you are experiencing abuse or violence in your relationship, it’s important to listen to your inner wisdom. It may be telling you that you need to get help, or that you need to leave the relationship. Trusting your intuition can help you stay safe and protect yourself from harm.

Understanding what intuition is…How do you know it’s intuition? Be sure to check out my article on discerning fear from intuition.

Knowing something is wrong in your relationship, even though you can’t put your finger on exactly what it is, helps you to realize early you need to address issues or move on to a better situation.

I know of individuals who got caught for years in a toxic relationship because they discounted the red flags and signals from their inner voice.

Recognizing red flags: Sensing that your partner is hiding something, their stories don’t add up, they blow up at you without good reason, or unduly criticize your family and friends. You may avoid getting involved in a relationship that might not be healthy for you.

Balancing intuition with logic

Intuition can be a valuable tool when making decisions about relationships. It allows you to tap into your subconscious and pick up on subtle cues that you may not be consciously aware of. For example, you may feel an instant attraction to someone, or you may have a sense that someone is not right for you, even if you can’t quite put your finger on why.

However, when relying on intuition, it’s important not to ignore practical factors. While a strong attraction or connection may be a good starting point, it’s also important to consider whether you share similar values and goals with that person. For example, if you value open communication and honesty, but they are not forthcoming about important issues, this could create problems down the line.

When making decisions about romantic relationships it is important to be mindful of both approaches: Listen to your intuition, but also take the time to get to know the person and consider whether the practical factors are in line with what you are seeking in the relationship.
