Do You Listen to Your Intuition?

“Intuition is a spiritual faculty and does not explain, but simply points the way.”  Florence Scovel Shinn

Intuition is one of the 6 intellectual faculties that we all have.  Unfortunately a lot of us believe that only psychics have this power & others don’t believe at all.  On the other side of the coin we have people like Donald Trump or Richard Branson who use their ‘gut instincts’ all the time to make big business decisions.  They don’t have to trust these instincts, but they do because they have been proven time & again to have been the right thing for them to do at that time.  They don’t get hung up on understanding how or why they know.  They just trust.

Use another of your intellectual faculties.  Imagine that it is a beautiful day & for some unexplained reason you get ‘the feeling’ that you should take an umbrella.  You leave the umbrella at home, as you use your conscious mind to reason, that the forecast has said it is going to be a beautiful day and that’s exactly how it looks to you.  That intuitive nudge gets overridden, only to find several hours later, that you have been trapped by a downpour wishing you had listened to that little voice inside your head.  We can exercise this faculty like Richard Branson – just humour that instinct to take the umbrella – what have you got to lose if it doesn’t rain!  As you practice and acknowledge your own intuition more often, it will start to feel stronger and help you to make bigger and better decisions.

Enjoy using your intuition!
