Intuition is something we all have, but something we’re not always aware we have. It can be used to help us live our lives successfully.
Have you ever had that feeling when you know that something is right for you, even though you’re not sure why; or instinctively know you need to go down a certain path? Intuition lets us know what we need to do and allows us to make those changes even though we may be hesitant and will resist change.
Intuition can be defined as ‘a thing that one knows or considers likely from instinctive feeling rather than conscious reasoning.’ It steers us on the path we are meant to take without questioning why. Intuition isn’t something we listen to or tap into every day, but we can if we learn and take time to open-up to it.
For those of us who meditate, or for those who practise by listening, intuition should become more instinctive. Life can certainly be more rewarding when we listen to our intuition. When our intuition communicates with us, we should learn to embrace it.
When we ignore its presence, it usually means that we’re not in tune or prepared to listen, or to give in to that part of us that is helping or wanting us to change. That could be because the human brain is constantly resistance to change. We tend to repeat old habits and ignore instinctive feelings.
Our instinctive feelings can bring about new events that perhaps we didn’t see together with new opportunities. Now that we know what intuition is, perhaps it’s time for us to follow our instinctive feelings, so that we can let more light and peace into our lives.
Instinctively I believe intuition is about spiritual growth. The more we use our intuition, the more peace we will find.
