Intuition is defined as the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning.
Our intuition is our animal instinct that alerts us to danger in a split second. We may not always know why we have a bad feeling, but we can train ourselves to stop searching for a logical reason and just trust our own “gut feeling.”
“Intuition is always right in at least two important ways;
It is always in response to something.
It always has your best interest at heart.” -Gavin deBecker
Remember a time when your intuition knocked?
- You were conversing with someone that you felt was suddenly weird? (Could be incongruence in tone or body language that alerted your intuition and caused this feeling)
- You walked into a room or building and suddenly felt like leaving? Your intuition picked up on something!
- You sensed danger in the person sitting across from you on the bus. You may think, “that person is weird,” or “that person seems dark.”
Avoid saying “I KNEW IT!” You probably did know it in the moment, you may not have known why, but your intuition spoke up to you. Treasure that small voice, that gut feeling, that intuition.
