What is Intuition? Is it even important ? 5 things you probably didn’t know about intuition included.

Intuition is the ability to know something by considering your inner feelings regardless of the facts at hand. Intuition doesn’t offer proof or evidence of why but you somehow just know it in your heart, that that’s the right path to take or right thing to do in that moment.

You as well, don’t understand why but you can almost feel it in your gut that that’s exactly what you should be doing.

Some people call it the inner voice. It will guide you to act a certain way without really fully understanding why you should act that way.

The difference between gut feelings and intuition is that with the latter you just know what it is that you should be doing, and with the former, there is some sort of physical feeling involved for example goosebumps, excitement, butterflies in your stomach, shivers down your spine, etc.


How does it come about?

Intuition is possible because most of us know or believe there is a supreme power that is higher than we are. And we believe that power is greater, more knowledgeable, and knows things we don’t know or don’t know yet or shall even never know.

It’s this knowledge that causes us to trust our instincts despite not being able to explain them. We believe these feelings to be messages from our soul, God, or whatever supreme being it is we believe in. We believe that that inner voice guides us on what path to take especially when we are at crossroads.

Intuition shows up in various ways that may include gut feelings, hunches, thoughts, words, and in advanced cases visions too.

That is what intuition is for: it is the direct messenger of the soul.

There is a universal, intelligent, life force that exists within everyone and everything. It resides within each one of us as a deep wisdom, an inner knowing. We can access this wonderful source of knowledge and wisdom through our intuition, an inner sense that tells us what feels right and true for us at any given moment.

Is intuition important?

Yes, it is important.

Listen to your intuition. It will tell you everything you need to know.

It is important because;

  • In everyday life, it will guide you on what path to take especially at crossroads or during times when you don’t have a lot of time to think or analyze the situation at hand.
  • It will also help you decide what risks are worth taking and which ones aren’t. Research shows that most times our intuition knows what’s best for us before our conscious mind does.
  • In relationships, it will help you know if you’re in good company or if you should flee for your life.
  • Health wise, it can help you identify health issues at an early stage and hence help prevent further complications.
  • It will warn you about different circumstances and people.
  • It will also alert you of good opportunities so you don’t miss them.

I for one, most of the times I’ve had a bad feeling about someone in my life, it has always turned out to be true. Same applies to the good feelings, therefore I’ve learnt to trust my gut feeling when it comes to people.

There’s a reason you are having a hunch about people, circumstances, and places. Yes, you may not yet be able to explain it yet but don’t dispense it as untrue or unimportant.

I love to regard my gut feelings as someone higher than me looking out for me, and this has helped me so many times in my life. I’ve avoided attachment to people I later found to be toxic, I’ve gotten opportunities I would have otherwise missed had I not followed my gut, and it has also helped me to be in the right place at the right time.

All great women are gifted with intuition. They know without reasoning or analysis, what they need to know.

Should or shouldn’t you trust it ?

In one word, yes you should trust it.

I agree with Steve Jobs when he said, “Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”

Learn to trust your intuition because 8 times out of 10, it’s always right. And if you don’t believe it is right more times than it isn’t, then most likely it’s because you haven’t devoted some time to enhance it.

For your intuition to always come to your aid, you need to work on developing it, just like anything else, it requires effort too.

  • A little lone time to meditate daily would help you to connect with your subconscious mind and amplify your inner voice especially when you need it the most.
  • Since intuition is spiritual, working on your spiritual life would also help boost it.

Having a quiet time mentally is the key to harnessing our intuition, and being awake when others are asleep allows us to be with our thoughts.

The 5 things you probably dint know about intuition

Intuition is the key to everything, in painting, filmmaking, business – everything. I think you could have an intellectual ability, but if you can sharpen your intuition, which they say is emotion and intellect joining together, then a knowingness occurs.

  1. Mixing God-given ability and intuition will help you attain your highest potential in any industry you are in.

2. To attain anything noteworthy, be ready to follow your intuition. It somehow knows the way ahead better than you ever will.

3.To be more intuitive, you need to devote some time and energy to your inner self and spiritual growth too. It does take time and patience but it surely pays off.

4.Deciding to make love, gratitude and happiness your daily choices is one of the best decisions you’ll ever make. Being happy and thankful helps you connect with your subconscious mind and once your conscious and subconscious mind are in harmony, it enhances your intuitive side.

Loosen up a bit – don’t be too serious, smile, and be happy this too shall pass, whatever it is.

5. Everyone (no matter who they are and what their beliefs are) has an intuitive side. Whether you are aware of it or not and whether you believe it or don’t, it still exists. Yes, there are varying degrees to each of our intuitive abilities but everyone does have some.

You can decide to harness your intuitive side or just let it be, but remember there are more advantages to the former. But still, the choice lies with you, and you alone.

Intuition will help you discover yourself.

Closing note

Tapping into your intuitive side is one of the best decisions you could make for your life. It will surely bring you more peace of mind, joy, happiness, health, wealth, opportunities to fulfill your God-given destiny and so much more.

It’s not an easy path to trek, but it surely leads to somewhere great. It’s totally worth the journey, a hundred percent.

The comfort zone is the great enemy of creativity; moving beyond it necessitates intuition, which in turn configures new perspectives and conquers fears.
