We get so caught up in the influences of our friends, family and community, we often ignore our gut instincts. Humans have intuition for a reason. It’s our “early warning system” there to guide us to safety and that which is for our highest good. When the facts stack up one way, and intuition blares the opposite, always go with intuition.
Many people will agree in theory; but how often do we practice following intution? Modern society has taught us to invest in logic over instinct; much to our detriment, in many cases. The more we act predictably and logically, the more we find ourselves in a hamster wheel. It’s safe. It may even be fun. But it goes nowhere, fast.
We have to stop. Sit silently. Tune in to the heart. Hear it speak. Sure enough, it has words for us; or at the very least, a feeling. A hunch. If we stay loyal to it, all is as it should be.
If we don’t, we will perpetuate a pattern, again and again; a habit that is challenging to break. We’ll repeat responses, create the same outcomes over and over, and learn nothing.
If we pay full attention to our intuition, chances are we will be, act or do differently. This will instigate a new outcome. Perhaps it’s what our higher self was calling us to become all along.
Pay Attention to Intuition © July 14, 2011 | Annie Zalezsak
I have noticed that when we do go with our intuition, once we have made a decision to act on it there is a sense of calmness-as though we know everything will be alright… even when we don’t know how!
Thanks for pointing that out, Jacqueline. I have that same experience of calmness when accepting and following my own intuition.
Intuition is an early warning system. Even to understand intuition you have to apply your mind. There is another new thing, ‘move with the flow’. Here Nature takes control of you!
