I’ve spoken about intuition on and off, but have yet to really explain what it means.
I used to think that intuition was about manifesting and using mind powers. That was back in the 80 and 90s, when there just wasn’t any information around at the time.
My intuition was working fine, but I would just ignore it because I didn’t like what it was telling me.
More importantly, when I was going to try something that didn’t feel right, I thought that it was just nerves, or me being negative, so I thought that if I soldiered on, thing would work out.
They never did.
It wasn’t till around 1994 that I finally started to understand. I’m not sure what caused the shift, but one day, I just somehow understood what I needed to do.
As I mentioned in previous entries, I had finally got to the point where I was so over failing in getting the things I believed I wanted. I was worn down, and had to admit that I just couldn’t brute force my way thought things.
Once I started to trust it, it became one of my greatest tools.
The skeptics out there claim that there is no such thing as intuition. They will put it down to us having the ability to read subtle signs and signals that we’re not even aware of.
Now, there is truth to this, make no mistake, but to dismiss it as all there is to it would be an error.
While we might be very good at reading signs (especially as an Empath), it does not explain how you can know about things where there are no signs to be read.
It doesn’t explain how you could know things that were never spoken of, of things that are happening elsewhere, when you’ve got no prior knowledge of it.
It doesn’t explain why something might feel right today, and then tomorrow it feels bad, even though you’ve received no new information.
If it was a matter of being logical, then most of the decisions I’ve made would not have been made and the ones based on logic would have ensured my life would have thrived.
Logic has gotten me nowhere. Even reading the signs has failed me when it doesn’t match with what I was feeling. In fact, often, what I might be feeling may be totally contrary to what I’m observing.
The fact is, intuition is real, it is powerful and can really steer you through the minefields of life.
The fact that people fear to trust their own feelings shows that logic has very little to do with it, because people tend to take the logical route, or the path that they feel will lead them to the most benefit, even if they don’t feel good about the choice.
In these things, fear is often at the root of our motivation.
Intuition is like your personal inbuilt GPS with full traffic information and where the speed and red light cameras are… well, I’m sure you get the idea.
It will navigate all the obstacles that you can’t possibly be aware of. All you need do is listen.
