The ego and intuition are at two ends of the spectrum and are complete opposites, like chalk and cheese. The ego is defined as a person’s sense of self-importance or self-esteem. Intuition is the ability to understand something instinctively without the need for conscious reckoning.
There is a problem with the former and we should learn to embrace the latter. The ego is something that if left, may grow into something bigger that will overtake our conscious thinking, as the ego talks for us. The two voices are direct opposites and will never work well together.
Unfortunately, those with an inflated ego tend to have self-righteous tendencies too. They don’t see their own shortcomings, but will be just as quick to point out other people’s shortcomings and flaws. Where the ego prompts people to compete so they won’t be outdone by each other, intuition is solely based on an internal knowing and is nothing like the ego.
Although working off our intuition brings about greater awareness and emotional growth, it may cause others to feel threatened, by seeing us as a know it all, but that’s further from the truth and usually comes from them not knowing how the intuition works.
Having intuition can produce scepticism in others and often does. Some may be put off by just how much we know and will choose to ignore what we say, but for those who continue to work with their intuition, they will always have a greater understanding that will make them more knowledgeable, as well as help solve every day issues.
For those like me with intuitive skills, we will always be misjudged until others choose to perceive us differently. It’s not right or fair, when anyone chooses to perceive what we say with skepticism, intuitive or not.
