Do you know that feeling when something is wrong? Or, instead, that something great is about to happen? You can't quite explain but something is surely going on and you know it. And this is not closed to situations and events, it can be that you met someone and felt suspicious about or, on the other hand, you felt that that person is friendly. This is your intuition speaking, and it is usually right!
This is because our brain is constantly collecting and processing pieces of sensorial data from our environment. Sometimes we are aware of it and others we don't but that information is still processed and available through our intuition. This means that our intuition is often based on real things, observation, and experience and, most of the time, that we can tap into it. With practice we can tap into it more easily, this means being more mindful of our emotions and body clues. Sometimes our intuition can be deceiving as well, based on fear, but with practice and reflection, you should be able to distinguish.
Crystals can be a valuable tool to assist you in increasing your intuition:
Amethyst - Is a powerful and protective stone. Amethyst is excellent for the mind and greatly aids in the decision-making process. While also balancing out the highs and lows allowing you to reach a true balance.
Clear Quartz - Opens intuition to gain insight and helps in clarifying situations. Opens higher awareness and psychic abilities and is great for meditation
