How to Determine if You are Intuitive

People tend to think that being a psychic means that you look at crystal balls or that you are a gypsy who has supernatural powers.  But what if you have psychic powers, and you don’t even realize it?

Most people can be intuitive, and even though they know that they have this gift, most will not understand how they know things, especially if they are very rational or have been influenced by things such as religion, education, or science.

There are some ways that you can tell whether you might be intuitive, and here are some signs:


If you are always feeling the emotions of others, you might be intuitive. This can cause you to be withdrawn from people because their emotions can be too strong. This is not exactly empathy, but a sense of what someone is feeling before they have said a word.


Highly intuitive people sometimes remember their dreams and have vivid dreams.  Their dreams might be something that interprets what the future holds, or they might be scary dreams.  You can ask that gift to come and not be afraid of it. Remembering our dreams can provide information into our lives and those of others.


If you meet someone and everyone seems to like them, but you sense things about them that throw you off. You might want people to stay away from them and feel a warning that something is off with them is necessary. Nothing is hidden from you that is in that person’s heart so trust that instinct, even if others will not listen.

If you have a soul that allows you to understand things, even if you have an unpopular ideas about certain others, trust the feeling. Your gut will tell you what you need to know, and while you will have a hard time telling your friends that they should have listened to you, stick with what you feel.


There are different kinds of intuition, including clairsentience, claircognizance, clairvoyance, and clairaudience. These different intuitions allow you to hear things, feel things, and know things.  Your body will allow you to know and hear things that surprise you. You won’t know where these things come from, but they come from within. Pay close attention to these thoughts because they may contain important information.


Do you ever feel that you are in a place where objects are speaking to you?  Do you feel that the trees communicate with you or that you have a piece of jewelry that tells you certain things?  Everything you touch might get through to you if you learn to listen and tune in. This will not happen for everyone, but you may seem to know the item’s history just through touch.


Are you the one that is always running into different psychics?  Do they seem to want to give you a lot of attention?  The chances are that you are highly intuitive and that they can see this about you.  Of course, you might recognize this, but a psychic can really recognize it and be attracted to you. If others are continually telling you that an ability exists, perhaps it is time to listen.


In some cultures, highly intuitive people are sick and get sick because they are not following the calling on their lives. In different cultures, someone who is scared of their gift because they are afraid of being ridiculed or burned for their beliefs may hide the gift, yet become physically or mentally ill due to keeping the secret.


Someone that is intuitive is sometimes easily addicted to things.  For example, they could be addicted to drinking to coffee, alcohol, or even drugs.  They might also have other addictive behaviors. For some, this may be because they are trying to quiet the ability, but for others it is just part of their personality and may be difficult to overcome.

Connection with Nature

When you are in nature, you might feel that you have your best ideas.  So, walking through the woods and getting new ideas is a big sign of being intuitive. Perhaps you find the greatest peace looking out over the ocean waves or walking in a wildflower field. If this also seems to open up your senses, then you likely have intuitive abilities.


If you are intuitive and you aren’t really sure of it, see if the universe talks to you.  This type of feeling can leave you shocked will grabbing your attention.

Being an intuitive is a gift that never leaves you.  Even though people give up on you, an intuitive can never give up the powers inside of them.  These powers can bring happiness, love, and health, and by practicing them, they can only get stronger. Do not feel your abilities, but embrace them and allow them to flourish.
