Intuition is a process that gives us the ability to know something directly without analytic reasoning, bridging the gap between instinct and reason.
We all have the same access to intuition in fact I believe it's our natural state, it's just that our own judgements, beliefs and perceptions get in the way of it.
Your intuition happens at lightning speed.
The answer you seek about your direction, business, relationship, health etc tends to arrive before you’ve even finished asking yourself the question!
It’s because intuition arrives so quickly that we totally miss it.
And fast on the heels of intuition is ‘judgement’, the result of both conscious and unconscious programing accumulated over a lifetime (or two!).
Judgement ensures that new and unfamiliar ideas that involve stepping out of your comfort zone are immediately moved over to your mental trash can ready for permanent deleting.
This takes place in a millisecond and leaves you frustrated, confused and unable to move forward.
So what can you do to notice and act on your intuition?
- Firstly just by reading this post and realising how intuition works you will naturally become more aware of the lightning speed thoughts, words, images that come to mind then you are seeking an answer for yourself.
- Try not to judge what comes to mind. Often you’ll notice something seemingly unrelated come to mind, don’t dismiss it. Write these thoughts down.
- Experiment! Take action on your insights and see what happens. Change is always a result of taking different actions.
The more you do this the more confident and trusting you will become of your own inner wisdom.
