15 Jun What Does Your Gut Say?
“Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” ~ Steve Jobs
What Is Intuition?
Intuition, also known as a GUT FEELING! It’s that feeling you get in your stomach that you just know something is up, but you don’t have the proof to back it up, so you end of questioning it or even worse….blowing it off.
By definition, intuition is: The natural ability or power that makes it possible to know something without any proof or evidence : a feeling that guides a person to act a certain way without fully understanding why; something that is known or understood without proof or evidence.
It has also been said intuition is the voice of the non-physical world. It’s that connection between the personality (the ego) and your higher-self and its guides and teachers.
3 Ways Intuition Shows Up
- In ‘forward’, we literally feel that we want to move closer to something. We feel good about it. We feel excited, happy and positive. We can’t explain why, we can’t find the words for it, but we KNOW that something will work, that the person is good or honest, that this situation will be for the best, that this job/car/person/product/idea/food is the right choice.
- In ‘neutral’ we feel indifference. There is no strong emotion or physical reaction either way.
- In ‘reverse’ our gut is telling us to back away. We feel unsure or uncomfortable. The warning bells start to go off. If it’s a mild response, this is where our brain often kicks in and invalidates our emotion (that can happen in ‘forward’ situations too!) by persuading our logical mind with rational thoughts and justifications. In a strong response we may feel anxious or ill, we want to move back from this job/person/situation, we want to get a better or a neutral space. We can’t say why but we KNOW this won’t work well, this person can’t be trusted, something is wrong, it’s going to end badly…
Pay attention and honor those feelings. Let your intuition be your guide when it comes to the people you are involved with; whether it’s a romantic, personal or business relationship.
Trust the fact that you have a built-in guidance system and use it accordingly. This works best when you are centered and not in a state of panic, frustration or experiencing any other high emotion(s).
Listen to those “whispers” as you go about the rest of your day today. When in doubt, as the old adage says “Go with your gut.”
