What is Intuition?
According to Wikipedia, intuition is the ability to acquire knowledge without recourse to conscious reasoning. Do you ever have a feeling deep down in your gut telling you if something is right or wrong that you are about to do? How about that moment you look into someone’s face, and you sense something is wrong, you think they feel low vibrational emotions? Do you know what it is that allows you to know such things? Is it just your gut instinct?
Your intuition is a potent thing. It is way more than a gut feeling or a fleeting thought. It is part of our higher self. It is that soft nudge you may feel to take a certain direction. It is that sick feeling in the pit of your stomach that lets you know something is not quite right. The subtle light of confidence allows us to know we are on the right path.
Your intuition is authentic. It speaks in a quiet voice to our inner self, and it embraces the art of being subtle, making it easy to push it away. So many of us are not in tune or tapping into our intuition. Maybe we did not know we had such a thing or do not understand it. If you know how to tap into the power of your own intuition, you can use it to assist you in manifesting more positive people and circumstances, as well as beautiful new experiences into your life. For this to happen, you must first utterly understand your own intuition and what it is and how it works.
Your intuition is your inner guide or inner teacher. One, you should pay close attention to listening very closely to its nudges and whispers when it speaks. Most intuition is so subtle you remember it in hindsight. It is much more useful in life if you learn to tap into your intuition at the moment and understand the nudges it gives you. Intuition is a sensory awareness, not a thought awareness. You need to use your body and what it is telling you as a whole. Not your thoughts to truly follow your intuition.
Example of intuition
An example of intuition is love at first sight. The knowing or understanding without it having to be proven or shown facts. The ability to perceive or know things without conscious reasoning. Seeing that person for the first time and knowing beyond reason that there is something deeper between you that you have no reasonable way of knowing. If you think about it, it is not rational. However, when you feel into it, you feel nudges of warmth and love within yourself. When you give into it further, looking into his eye’s energies speaks to you without words or understanding giving you the knowledge of the emotions being exchanged between you.
There are multiple types of intuition. Heuristics and biases, gut feeling, insights, psychic intuition, and philosophical intuition. They are quite different coming from different places. The most common one is termed gut-feeling.
