Let Your Intuition Guide You

This post was written by Amy

Some call it a gut feeling. Some call it their inner voice. Intuition is hard to define because you can’t pinpoint its origin to a truly definable resource. No matter where you believe the guiding force that is intuition comes from, it is a definite force that can help guide you down the winding road of life

I’ve used intuition in many circumstances and it is very interesting to look back and think of where it directed me in certain situations. I tend to make up my mind very fast when a decision must be made, especially a large one. If it feels right, I go with it and don’t doubt myself. However, there was a person that I dealt with in the past who made me doubt my intuition. Every time I went with what felt right, it always blew up in my face. I thought my intuition was off and started going against my gut feeling. It took me too long to realize that all of the gut feelings that caused the blow-ups were trying to tell me something: don’t have anything to do with this person. It has taken me a while, but I’m finally back to trusting my intuition, and I feel that I’m back on the right path.

Do you let your intuition guide you? What are some examples of where it’s led to something wonderful for you?

I don’t know if I can agree fully with this post.
I do believe that deep inside of us is some truth, maybe it’s “intuition,” but I’ve rarely encountered it. Following hunches, following what I honest-to-God thought was my intuition, my inner self speaking, doing the “right” and “smart” thing has led me terribly astray sometimes. I’ve made some decisions I’ve regretted and some poor choices where I’ve let my intuition (or what I’ve thought was my intuition) guide me. Maybe it’s because I’ve covered up my actual intuition with insecurities, self-doubt, and societal demands. But for me, sometimes those voices sound indistinguishable from what should be my intuition; I follow them, and I get stuck.

My most recent experience with intuition involved the ‘gift’(won’t cost you a thing) of a concert ticket that should have left me feeling very excited. Instead I felt downhearted, sad, wary.

2 days later, I found out there were strings attached(I was to be the designated driver) that while not a big deal, left me feeling hurt and disappointed that I had been deceived.

I’m sure it’s there on a fairly frequent basis, but I’ve never been more aware of my intuition than I was in this instance.

Kyle and Leigh, thanks for sharing your insights and experiences. Intuition is stronger in others, but maybe it is our fear that prevents it from being stronger? Who knows, but thanks so much for commenting!

Hi Amy,
I became aware of my highly developed intuitive gifts at a very young age. Unlike the above mentioned experiences of mistaken identity, i.e., unable to filter out “voices/conditioning” and therefore not relying on true intuition – everytime I followed the “voices/conditioning” is where I ran into trouble. It takes practice, but those voices can and often need to be silenced so our natural, internal GPS works as it was intended.

Sometimes I have to clear my energy – exercise, drink water and get in a calm state (I can do this in the car too…stretching, water and centering myself) then my guidance/intuitive compass is working properly again.

I’ve also learned to be more careful with whom I share my talents with as negative people certainly can interfere with my signals! Steer clear of naysayers, or at least don’t give them any ammo!

I think that my intuition is a way that my subconscious or “higher self” gives me signs about things that are good for me or are helping move in the direction that I want to move my life forward.
Sometimes it is that intuition that helps us make choices of whether someone in our lives is toxic to us or a certain situation is destructive. It0s all about making the right choices:

Hi Amy,
My intuition is guiding me here. I feel the need to ask you a personal question, if you would be so kind as to reply to my email address.
Thank You,
CB
