Intuition is something we all have, but something we’re not always aware we have. Intuition can be used to help us successfully navigate life.
Have you ever had that feeling when you know that something is right for you even though you’re not sure why, or you instinctively know you need to go down a certain path? Intuition lets us know what we need to do and encourages us to make those changes, even though initially we may be hesitant and feel the need to 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’re meant to take without us questioning why. It’s not something we listen to or tap into every day, but we can, as long as we take the time to open up to it.
For those of us who meditate, or for those who practise listening, intuition should become more instinctive. When we ignore its presence, it usually means we’re not in tune or prepared to listen, or willing 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 resistant to change. We tend to repeat old habits and ignore instinctive feelings. But instinctive feelings will make us aware of new events that we didn’t see, together with new opportunities.
Perhaps now that we know what intuition is, it is time for us to follow our instinctive feelings. Intuition allows for emotional and spiritual growth. It lets light in where we don’t always see light and it can bring about peace.
