Your intuition talks to you through feelings, images, and bodily sensations such as "gut feelings". Learn to pay attention to what these are trying to tell you and what's going on when they pop up in your mind.
Maybe you're being more open and relaxed when those intuitive gut feelings come to you—so try to get back to that place more often. This way you'll end up being able to tap into your intuition more often when you need it.

If you don't think you have a strong intuitive sense, simply try asking yourself more questions and keep them mulling around in your mind. When you've got something in the back of your mind, something amazing happens without you even trying. Your brain takes notice and uses all your senses to find any sign or trace of information that relates to your questions as you go about your day. It's kind of like a search running in the background on your computer—even though you're doing something else it doesn't stop looking.
After you've asked your questions, your mind will start sending you ideas, feelings and images without you even thinking about it. But sometimes this takes more time than you'd like.
Finally, your intuitive voice will eventually just pop up and start to give you hints and information without you even asking for it. And then it's up to you to pay attention, acknowledge it and make good use of it.
4. Think Positive—Don't Fill Your Mind With Fear And Doubt
Some women end up worrying almost obsessively that something is wrong or going badly with a guy they're interested in or dating once they see some negative sign or pattern. And once this happens, they want to know what's going on so intently that they start letting their negative and obsessive thoughts take over.
If you want to be able to use your intuition, you need to start interrupting that voice in your head that's the "fear-monger". You know the one—that voice that's always worrying just to try and keep you safe and protected. The thing is, you can't find the truth in a situation if you if your mind is buried in your fears and doubts. Just like how overly arrogant people can be misled by their false sense of belief in themselves. Keep a balanced and objective mindset.
5. Start With Smaller, Less Important Questions For Your Intuition To Answer
If your new to using your intuition or you're concerned with if or how to act on it, start with smaller things that might be less important—like whether or not you should go away for the weekend or if your friend will like the gift you've been thinking about for them.
That way, you can be practicing and learn to use your intuition without doing it in high-risk or high-pressure situations. This will help you develop your abilities and become more comfortable to trust what you find with your intuition.
