Intuition… we pretty much all have it, but we don’t always use it. Often it just gets ignored.
Intuition gets dismissed as a weak, feminine trait that can’t be trusted. If men follow their intuition, they call it “following their gut”, yet isn’t that exactly what it is?
I believe in intuition and following it, for our subconscious minds can pick up on clues that our logical minds aren’t able to see yet. I know the more I trust my gut, the better my decisions are.
I also believe there is a flow to how the universe sets things up, and we attune to it by following our intuition.
Intuition without knowing facts is operating blindly, but if we get the facts, then when our intuition kicks in, we can have faith that the universe will help us to work things out, in ways we wouldn’t have thought of.
How well have you been following your intuition lately? Are you rejecting it in favor of pure logical thinking? I suggest allowing yourself to get reconnected with it because that is how our Angels, God, Source, etc. speak to our hearts!
How do we reconnect with the soft, inner voice?
By acknowledging it and following it.
If it brings up fear or anxiety, then don’t do it. If you’re not ready you don’t have to!
Just take a mental note of what happens after you feel the quiet inner voice speaking. Were you happy you listened, or do you regret it, seeing that if you had then you could have changed things?
By observing what happens after, we can see that even if we don’t logically understand why the soft inner voice is telling us something, making the connections between the before and the events that follow, we can develop trust in our gut feelings.
I’ve consciously done this exercise and it helped me see the connections in my own life between the gut feelings and what ended up happening. Later on, I was able to choose to follow a gut feeling, and follow up with how things turned out. I was surprised at how accurate those gut feelings were and marveled at how I had been given the information I couldn’t have otherwise known.
When do we disconnect from it?
We disconnect from our intuition when we choose to ignore it, or when we dismiss or diminish it as knowledge that isn’t “good” enough.
I remember years ago people asking me “how do you know this” when I spoke about some things very intuitively. I couldn’t give them a satisfactory answer such as from XYZ university, teacher, or book, so through their dismissive responses, I also learned to dismiss my own intuition.
Only when I was working on taking back the remote control for my life, unlearning so many lies I had been taught about myself (and punished for), and taking on full ownership of who I was, did I get reconnected with my intuition.
Intuition serves us in so many ways.
For the religious person, it is how God and the Angels speak to us, giving us “knowings” and nudges to guide us.
For the non-religious, it is how the universe speaks to us individually, helping us on our journeys.
(I use both the religious and the non-religious terms in my writing, for the lessons and the knowledge I’m seeking to share straddle both worlds, for we all have the same emotions.)
No matter which part of the spiritual spectrum you identify with, God and the universe gave us intuition so we can develop our inner compass, so we can have the inner knowing to keep us safely on course, right where we need to be!
