I’m one of those weirdoes who believes that everyone has some level of psychic ability, though most of us choose to ignore it, or dull those senses by overanalyzing every possible detail.
What can I say? Overthinking is taking away all our super powers, y’all.Overthinking is taking away all our super powers, y'all. Click To Tweet
Anyway, it’s no secret that I’m into weird stuff and magic, so it was only a matter of time until I wrote this post. But let me just give you a few reasons why maybe you need to pick up a book on developing intuition.
Ever wanted to be able to make decisions in the spur of the moment? Ever wondered how some people can react and do the right thing without thinking about it? Curious about ways you can channel your intuition or tools you can use?
Or maybe you want to more easily access your creativity and trust your gut when you’re making art?
These books cover it all.
And while it may seem like a fairly woo-woo sort of thing, intuition is invaluable. Personally, one of the best things I’ve done to develop my intuition is to learn to calm down my anxiety. (Intuition can’t be heard when you’re overthinking EVERYTHING.) But I’d be lying if I said these books didn’t help.
Books for Developing Intuition
I’m sure you’ve heard of this book, if you haven’t rad it already. But it’s a great book for really thinking about how we go about developing our intuition. Gladwell documents cases of people who are the top of their field and shows how they know what’s going to happen before it happens. His ultimate conclusion is that putting in the work and effort in a particular area can lead you to having a high level of intuition about that area. But he also documents incidences where it goes wrong — and used the example of police shooting an innocent man.
This book has been recommended to me by so many people for so many reasons. DeBecker, a security professional, discusses why you feel fear in certain settings, and how that can be a gift of your intuition letting you know when something is about to go wrong. Whether you’re looking for a book that will help you stop ignoring those negative hunches you keep getting, or you’re looking for a way to describe why a character feels a certain way in the book you’re writing, this book is always on the top of the list of books about intuition.
I’m one of those people who basically believes that we all have magical abilities, you just choose to use them or forsake them. (I don’t think you can be an artist and not believe in magic because you totally feel it when you’re creating.) If you think you might be able to develop some psychic capabilities, then this book is for you. I’m not saying that you’ll be able to have a conversation with your dead nana when you’re done. But you may be able to interpret some signs from the Universe that you would’ve otherwise glossed over.
This book takes the stance that intuition comes from a higher power. That is to say, that we have these feelings of intuition, and they are messages from above. So, if you’re looking for a more spiritual look at how we interact with our own intuition, as well as stories of how others have experienced their intuition, this book is for you. But beware — when you’re done with this one, you’re going to be following a lot of signs from the Universe and searching for your calling.
Looking to harness your intuition in order to make better choices in your life? Tired of ignoring your gut and making tortured decisions instead? This book teaches you how you can access your instincts using creative tools and also features stories of others who have done the same.
If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I love tarot. I just didn’t use it for a really long time because I felt like I needed to learn all there was to know and read all the books before I could jump in. But what if you already knew everything you needed to know about tarot, even though you’ve never studied the cards? That’s the stance this book takes as it walks you through the ancient symbols of the cards. Chock-full of more modern examples and anecdotes, this is a great book for someone who wants to channel their intuition through the tarot, but is afraid they don’t know enough.But what if you already knew everything you needed to know about tarot, even though you've never studied the cards?
