Noun – the ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning.
Have you ever had that ‘gut feeling’ or butterflies in your tummy?
Your body is a powerful and intuitive communicator. Your brain uses the combination of logic and emotion when it makes decisions. We all possess the capacity to feel and therefore the ability to know things without consciously reasoning.
There is no such thing as making a purely ‘logical’ decision’. Sometimes we know without knowing.
Our emotions and feelings may not only be important in our intuitive ability to make good decisions but I think actually they are essential. Every day you receive information that you are not consciously aware of.
Our intuitive feelings are frequently accompanied by physical reactions – our skin, our stomach or our throat for instance. Have you ever felt sick in the stomach or had a ‘frog’ in your throat or got goose bumps or feel your heart flutter.
Everything you experience in your life has an effect on your heart (emotions) and your head (logic). Your head can rule your life, pushing and pulling you in all directions.
Be aware of you natural instincts as it is your heart that is not subject to chaos or limited by pain – it is joyful, creative and loving and it is the essence of your being.
How many time have we all said “I should have followed my GUT FEELING?”
