How To Trust Yourself And Your Intuition

First let me start off by saying this, you are a living being, therefore you were designed and created with natural instinct and intuition.

You may not feel like you have great instincts or sharp intuition, however both can be cultivated and strengthened within you, and you can learn to trust yourself!

What Is Intuition?

The Oxford English Dictionary defines intuition as “the immediate apprehension of an object by the mind without the intervention of any reasoning process”.

Isaac Asimov said of it, “Intuition is the art, peculiar to the human mind, of working out the correct answer from data that is, in itself, incomplete or even, perhaps, misleading.”

How is your relationship with this aspect of yourself?

Can you find your own way through a situation with incomplete data? Are you able to balance the left and right sides of your nature, instinct and logic, in order to create maximum persuasion?

Your Intuition Can Be Cultivated And Strengthened

We all have the experience of gut feelings, most likely in the form of danger. Being in the wrong place at the wrong time is an unpleasant reminder of our intuitive natures. Or maybe you’ve experienced it in a romantic situation. We’ve all heard stories of a man or woman meeting their twin flame for the first time and thinking to themselves, ‘This is the person I’m meant to be with. I can feel it.’

Intuition is a muscle that can be strengthened. It is an aspect of emotional intelligence and with study, attention and patience, can be grown and used to further aid your persuasion skills.

Hunches, gut feelings and intuitions are entirely acceptable to apply in business matters, as well as, life in general. Following these are signs that Spirit is flawlessly guiding our lives as we’ve requested.

When I experience a moment of intuitive clarity, I feel tingles up and down my arms and body, a visceral reaction. Other people experience it as a jump in their chest. Others feel a hardness in the backs of their throats or stomach. By paying attention to these physical shifts, the world of self-calibration opens up to us. These shifts can sometimes make huge differences in the things we do and measures we take to close a deal or get out of a dangerous or difficult situation.

A Small Disclaimer About Intuition

Although this is contrary to popular opinion, intuition is NOT stronger in women than men. Both men and women have intuition and both can cultivate their intuition. Think about it, aren’t criminals and poker players great at reading people? Sharp intuition is important for many professions – both legal and illegal!

Following hunches shouldn’t negate logic and reason, but act in concert with them. The ability to pay attention to hunches and intuition is sometimes relegated to woo-woo modern mystics and is often neglected or mocked in other situations. But think about EMTs or military personnel (especially ones in the line of danger) who rely on these abilities to keep themselves safe. Or think about business mogul, Lee Iacoca, who once said, “The only mistake I ever made was not listening to my gut.”

Think back to times when you had these strong intuitive feelings and didn’t heed the warning. What unpleasantness could you have avoided if you had (a broken heart, a stolen iphone. . .)?
