When we are book versed, we’re more likely to judge others on what they choose to do with the information we give them. When we’re insightful, or we use our intuition to source information, we’re more likely to pass that information on as being ‘true’ and will allow others to choose.
Intuition is less about regurgitating the facts, and more about instinctive understanding, feeling our way around things. When we instinctively think about something, we discard the information we don’t need.
When we read from a book or take information from the internet, those are not our facts, and what we’re reading may not be the universal truth. Intuition is a hunch, based on the universal truths, it is instinctive, which means for it to work we must trust it and go with it.
When we instinctively or intuitively think about something, we’re tapping into the universe. We may learn facts and figures from a textbook, but when we base our thoughts on our ‘gut instinct’ we just know, and we don’t have to search for the facts.
Albert Einstein once quoted, “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift, and the rational mind is a faithful servant.’ Over the years we have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the ‘gift.’
Smart people will choose to listen to their gut and use those feelings to navigate their world. Those people will continue to nurture and harness their intuition and in doing so will make leaps forward.
