What Is Intuition? Why You Need To Listen to your Intuition Why You Should Trust Your Gut
Intuition: Trust Your Gut, It Knows Something You Don't
Our intuition stems from our mind recognizing certain patterns of senses, scents, touch, and the others that either occur alone or in conjunction with others. Our mind is able to recognize and pick-up on these factors that may not be considered consciously because of inaccessibility.
Our mind will remember everything it encounters through our entire life. Why then is our memory foggy? Because in order to survive in the fast paced society we live in today, our brains have adapted to blocking out things that it considers to be ordinary or constant. Although, our memories can be heightened by certain triggers such as one of the senses we contribute to a certain outcome.
An example of how intuition can correlate to real scenarios is as follows; Have you ever seen someone about to step in the street to cross the road, and you know the person did not see the car coming around the corner that you did. One way of warning a person, "Excuse me sir/ma'am I am sorry for interrupting your jog but you see I believe there is a car coming around the corner that you were not able to see." Very polite. Too bad the person was probably flattened.
What we would say is, "CAR!!!" Then the person would immediately turn around and leap for the pavement. That would save his life, because the person did not hesitate or bother to check if the scream was for him or not. He just listened and got the hell out of the street (his intuition probably told him too).
Intuition works the same way, instead of knowing why you know the answer, you just do. This is because our brain does not have enough time to explain it slow enough for your conscious mind to understand. We too should react immediately too our gut-feelings because if they weren't meant to be acted on immediately, then our brain would have taken the time to explain it's reasoning.
When you feel that felling in your stomach or something just doesn't feel right, take a step back examine the situation and you will find that your gut is never wrong.
