Why You Should Trust Your Intuition And What Is It Trying To Tell You
Some people call it a gut feeling, sixth sense, instinct or just an inner sense of knowing.
Living by your intuition, could be defined as, simply using your sixth sense to guide you to finding your true purpose and your ideal life.
Whatever you choose to call your intuition is a natural inner guidance and protective system that is built within you that is designed to guide and nudge you in the right direction in your life so it is well worth learning how to get the most out of it.
It is important that you listen to and follow your inner guidance if you would like to make the right decisions and choices that will lead you to a better, more successful life and bring you more happiness and higher levels of achievement and fulfillment.
Your intuition is more in alignment with your true authentic self, and it is an inner knowing and guidance system, which knows, what is right for you and what is best for you.
When you search for things on the outside in an attempt to make us happy, and when we allow our outside circumstances to dictate how we think, feel and behave, then that is like giving away all of our inner powers.
Our intuitive mind is connected to the all knowing universal intelligent mind and energy force, and it is the part of our mind that goes way beyond the limits and range of our everyday rational, logic and sometimes self limiting conscious mind.
Using your intuition will help you to have better health, relationships, vitality, peace of mind and experience greater clarity of purpose in your life.
Because it is far easier to make more money and to make important life changing decisions if you activate and follow your inner intuition and inner wisdom.
If you asked all successful entrepreneur what is the one thing that contributed to their success and decision making and success is all about decision, then most of them will tell you it was their intuition.
But before you can activate and rely on your trusted and forever reliable intuition you have to be crystal clear, what your intuition actually is because there is a big difference between your intuition and your imagination and your logical normal thinking self.
Your intuition is the sense of knowing what's right or wrong for you without any questioning, reasoning or doubting. It is that inner voice, feeling and knowing that comes from your inner being that already knows what's best for you in times when you're hesitant or not sure about a decision you pondering on making.
One of the best ways to activate your intuition is to deeply relax yourself first because a negative mind and body will block out important guidance and messages from withing.
To activate your inner powers of creativity and intuition you will need to be free of all negative resistence and things like meditation and deep breathing are good ways to calm your mind and body, then when your feeling really relaxed and at ease you can ask yourself self searching questions such as
- How can I
- Should I
- What's the best way to
- What do I need to do
- Please tell me

How do you listen to your intuition?
So how do you “listen” to your intuition? Well, we all aware about our gut feelings which sometimes automatically lets us know what's best for us without us deliberately asking.
Sometimes it comes in the form of a positive whisper in the ear thought or an encouraging message and feeling, but over time it can be negative orientated feeling and an inner warning that something is not right or good for us.
There have already probably been many times in your past when you have been having difficulties or problems or when you wanted to improve on something when your inner voice give you a clue or tried to point you in the right direction, sadly most people fail to recognize the guidance from within and they carry on making the same mistakes.
Listening to your gut is vital when you’re thinking about yes or no questions or you're about making an important decision, and learning how to tap into your intuition is the most reliable and fastest way to come up with life improving answers and solutions to your problems, desires and challenges.
Your intuition will come up with better ways of doing things, it will reveal to you important knowledge, advice and information that sometimes will go against the beliefs of your logical conscious mind, however your intuition rarely gets things wrong.
We have all experienced our inner intuition
We have all had that inner feeling that you know you should or should not do or say something before you did.
We all know that there were times when we should have pursued a course of action or follow our heart because we instinctively knew it was the right thing to do.
Sometimes, we know, that we are compromising ourselves or somehow something is right or wrong for us, yet we ignore the right decision and often, act when we know we should tread more carefully.
Have you ever been in an argument or said or done something even though you had a feeling or you heard that little voice inside your head trying to let you know let it go because you'll regret it later.
Your intuition can prevent you from making the biggest mistakes of your life and it can also help you to make some important life changing decisions.
When you allow your intuition to guide your thoughts and actions, you feel will feel good and it will problem result in a positive outcome or you will avoid making a big mistake.
So when your intuition speaks to you listen to it, then act accordingly because you will find out that it's always there to help guide you in making choices with the best interest and intentions for you.
I bet there have been many times in your life when you have said to yourself, you have a good feeling about something, you know when you just feel good about an opportunity or situation.
Be positive and calm to activate your intuition
Our intuition is always trying to guide us in every aspect of our life, but sometimes we miss it or ignore its important message, so we don't follow our intuition and therefore we miss out on yet another opportunity.
Why this happens is because we are more focused on all those negative thoughts and negative beliefs which prevents us from acting or taking advantage of our inner spiritual guidance.
Negative thoughts install fear and doubt which can override your intuition, which very often will later leave you full of regret.
But when you clear your mind of those negative thoughts you will open the door and connected up with your loyal intuition, allowing you to receive the inner guidance that you need.
You may not have even been aware that your intuition is always trying to guide you and help you.
Some people call their intuition their sixth sense, but really it is a natural part of you even though it gets largely left unused or ignored.
Your intuition is tied up to your subconscious mind and the universal intelligent unified and all knowing mind and energy.
However, stress, negative emotions and negative thoughts can block off this powerful inner guidance system that you possess and require.
So if you want to take full advantage of your true powers now you will need to manage and replace those negative and unwanted thoughts and negative beliefs so you can clearly hear your intuition and make the right choices and decisions.
Paying attention to your intuition
Have you ever had a gut intuition about something that you instinctively knew seemed the right or maybe the wrong thing for you to do.
Because intuition is a two way thing, meaning it is your inner spiritual guidance trying to either point out to you what is right and a good move for you or what might have negative consequences if you proceed to take action.
A good gut feeling about something usually means that it is the right course of action for you to take but sometimes you can get a nagging hunch that something might not be in your best interest, maybe you sense that something just does not seem right or maybe it sounds just too good to be true.
Intuition is born in all of us, nobody really knows exactly what it is we just know it does exist. It is a bit like a spiritual inner guidance system which delivers important messages to us which is coming from our true source and chore inner being, this is the hidden part of us that knows what's best for us.
Your feelings are always trying to tell you something so you should always pay attention to them, feelings act as an indicator too what's going on in both your inner and outer world.
All the answers and solutions can be found within you, so you should learn to follow your intuition.
They let us know whether we are on the right track or if we are at a place emotionally where we don't want to be. You have to be able to separate feelings of intuition with every day emotional ups and downs because they are slightly different things.
We all have important decisions that we have to make at certain times throughout our life, these can range from small ones to life changing big ones, our feelings are a good refection to whether we are doing the right thing or not.
Many people look back in regret because they have missed out on good opportunities because they ignored or did not trust their intuition, which is always trying to help us to either fulfill our dreams or to alert us to things that we should maybe steer clear of.
You have heard the saying "if something feels right then it probably is right and if something does not appear right then it is probably not".
The trouble is many people fail to recognize these important messages, which results in one of two things which are.
They fail to take action on their gut feeling which results in them letting the good opportunity pass.
Or they override the important messages and they still go ahead with what the head is telling them even though they know that they are probably making a mistake.
The old saying "follow your heart and not your head" is sometimes wise advise to follow.
We all need a helping hand
Everybody needs a helping hand from time to time, we all hit on bad times, everybody want's to keep on bettering and improve their lives, sometimes we do not have all the answers ourselves so many people ask others for help or sometimes others offer their advice even if we don't ask for it.
Sometime the opinions of others, especially if they are experts in the field that you need information or knowledge about or they have already been through what you're going through can be very beneficial and we should not dismiss other people's advice even if it can seem to be critical, harsh and unfair at times.
The problem with seeking out advice and help from others is, there is no guarantee that it is going to be of any help or any value to you.
Although they may mean well the answers that they might supply you with will be based on their own experiences, idea's and sometimes limiting beliefs.
So if you're struggling with a problem or you're working on a goal, then listen to your intuition which will always supply you with unbiased help and guidance
Definition of intuition
You can define intuition as a feeling of knowing even though you don't have access to visual proof yet, you are having the feeling of certainty before the event or situation has happened.
Intuition acts as a sixth sense impulse that guides you about future outside circumstances that may affect your life, when that gut feeling comes to you then you should pay it some attention.
Intuition is a part of our spirit, it is there to help you make the correct decisions, it may have been an important tool which was installed into us that could have helped early man avoid certain dangerous predators and locations.
Maybe it helped our ancestors to avoid eating a food that they had not previously come across that was poisonous or it helped people who had gotten lost, because instinct has many times helped man to survive.
Temptation and desperation can cause people to ignore their gut intuition, because even though you sometimes know your heading into something that is wrong for you.
The feelings that are meant to alert you get overridden and your last chance feelings of intuition fall on deaf ears as you still go ahead even though you deep down know the risks involved.
The same applies for positive guidance, you know you have a good feeling about a good idea or opportunity, but your doubting mind can cause you to play safe.
When you learn to trust your gut intuition, then it can be a great friend, helper and game changer.
Because, when you follow your inner guidance it will give you the courage to follow your dreams and desires instead of being controlled by the guidance and beliefs of other people who do not always know what you want and what's best for you.
Your gut instinct-knows what's best And It Can Lead You To Great Things
Most people rely on the information they observe through their senses mainly their eyes to decide their decision making.
This can lead to the making of rash decisions that in the long term may not be the best option for you.
Your true intuition comes from within you because it looks at the bigger picture. When we use and rely on our senses only or our rational, logical mind, then this can result in us learning things the hard way.
Sometimes people have to make a quick snap decision. In these cases we don't always have all the relevant information that we need so they have to rely on instinct.
This does not mean you should start making rash decisions, your intuition acts a bit like the red and green on traffic lights, green means go ahead and red means do not proceed.
Society and our experiences have led us to follow logic.
This can cause us to miss out on our most powerful inner wisdom. Just because we have a gut feeling it does not mean we should become careless though, it should be used as a guidance system.
But that does not mean you should not consider and seek out further information if you're still not sure.
Your intuition can help you to form a mental map of what could lie ahead for you, it's not all about thinking what's right, sometimes your better guidance can be from how you deep down feel about something.
Intuition should not be used as a tool for gambling, it is more about helping you make good, sensible judgments and decisions that regard your everyday life.
It can be a very powerful decision that can help you to become more successful, wealthier and improve your health, as well as guiding, and leading you to better things.
Another good thing your intuition can help you with is when you're entering a new relationship or if you suspect that there is something not quite right with your current relationship again, you have to be careful you do not get confused between your imagination, negative thoughts and your intuition.
It is not just your intuition that can help to guide you, the universe is also always trying to give you subtle hints and nudges regarding your goals and your problems and difficulties.
This may come in many shapes and forms so if you come across good advice or things of inspiration make sure you spot them and listen to them.
